    "The fact that any supposedly “scientific” endeavor such as the climate hysteria movement must spend so much time and effort on fine-tuning their nomenclature tells us all we need to know about its validity. Rebranding is something politicians and salespeople do — not scientists."

    So true

    You and the 40% of idiot trump supporters in the US are the only hoax believers on the planet.

    The kooks are meeting in Madrid

    "What I definitely don’t mean is the 30,000 or so loons who have flown in for the freak show about a thirty buck cab away in an industrial exposition zone on the edge of town. Clearly they care a lot but they’re not normal and they have no connection with the real world other than the unfortunate fact that they currently seem to make all our rules.

    That’s what’s really scary about these COP climate conferences, which perfectly encapsulate the increasing gulf between the globalist elite rule makers and the ordinary people — you and me — who have to suffer from their stupid, anti-democratic decisions. The liberal elite in their hermetically sealed conference zone; the underclass — which is everyone else — in the city.

    They arrived by plane – even private jet – but they tell us we should no longer fly unless it’s really necessary.

    They’re ferried around in fleets of black limousines but cars, as they keep telling us, are unsustainable."

    pm, more people would believe the climate is changing if the ranks of those calling us to arms were not thronged with charlatans/grant whores like Michael Mann, whose wild statements cast serious shade on the subject.

    Will ask you as have asked others who seem primarily to use this topic as a way to sneer at other, less enlightened folks: If we do absolutely everything "they" tell us, can we stop the cycle, which went from ice age to warm, wet planet with limited surface area and back several times before there was life on earth? Or will you, like the others, ignore the question. The best answer so far is, we have to try.

    Private jets, limos, condescension. I believe there has been an increase in CO2 and warming, though I also believe it's overstated. But I will not take these people seriously until the "we have 10 years" crowd stop trying to shut down nuclear plants early. They are a carbon neutral solution to the alternative energy storage dilemma that currently exists with respect to wind and solar. Are there risks? Yes, but not all plants are in tsunami or earthquake zones. And if we are really doomed in 10 years then tell me why it isn't a risk worth taking. Germany, not exactly a earthquake or tsunami risk, shut down their nukes. And while they have ramped up wind and solar, they are also burning more coal since the shutdown. And we only have 10 years?

    You couldn't be more wrong. I believe in the cycle--it happened several times in the distant past when there was zero life on Earth. But the charlatans have made people wonder if it is just another scam, so they are doing a terrible disservice.

    lol, huh? All you care about this issue is that you can mock your perceived board antagonists over it? Guess that passes for good internet banter. Can't remember, were you all exercised over the Covington, Kentucky kids, or was it Jussie? Just good internet banter.

    Very convincing arguments you're making here. With voices like yours, I can see why the "climate crisis" ranks 20th out of 20 issues the public is most concerned about.

    Dont need to make an argument. The scientists already have. If you disagree with the scientists, please tell us why their conclusions are wrong.

    if you guys are going to live in a fictional reality of your creation, at least make it a fun one. Why lie to yourself about Trump and climate change? There are much better things to lie to yourself about.

    I like how Schiano was negotiating unlimited use of private jets and many here were totally cool with it. You know, being the environmentalists that they are.

    Assuming you don't have other options. Or maybe you're just a hypocrite like other Tardz. I'll allow you to figure that one out.

    This thread spiraled down hill in a hurry. Meanwhile, an still waiting on Diddy to tell me "they" can stop the cycle. Or maybe also stop the Earth in its tracks at the most optimum spot in our orbit, instead of traveling nearly a million miles a day?

    They can't even stop China from building coal plants every week lol.

    Global warming lol. We will be laughing about this forever. It's like an elongated version of the y2k bug. Remember when these same people were saying the world was going to collapse lol?

    Since the new accommodation for private jets is to plant a tree for every mile flown.. I'd guess there is a potential business opportunity selling the same 100,000 tree plantings to a lot of jet-set liberals. Some UN elites will come up with that plan. Don't worry, 20,000 trees were just planted in New Guinea.. (and a new section of forest is burned / harvested to make room for more plantings)

    Since you clowns can't argue facts, you keep bringing up air travel, which is insignificant.
