• Why do Republicans hate the environment? Don’t they realize we only have one planet to live on?

    Or, at least, why are they in favor of dirty energy sources like coal and gas instead of renewables like solar or hydro-electric

    Best answer: The New World Order global government needs global funding. Climate Change is a good excuse for a global tax.

    The UN is already in place. So is the World Bank. Carbon Tax, Carbon Credits, Carbon Exchanges and things like the Paris Accord are already collecting money. Where does it all go?

    It will eventually be collected like VAT or a sales tax on energy. Initially it will be allegedly "revenue neutral" but will ramp up over time.

    Whether you believe it is the Illuminati driving the New World Order or whether it is similar people, possibly with no name or a different name, is up to you.

    No one is saying CO2 isn't increasing...that's objective and measurable. No one is saying climate isn't changing...it always has long before the industrial revolution.

    No one is saying CO2 isn't increasing...that's objective and measurable. No one is saying climate isn't changing...it always has long before the industrial revolution. Shutting down the world economy and giving control to the UN isn't going make a significant difference in prognosis and no one responsible debates that. It would also send hundreds of millions back into poverty and into death from some other cause. The debate is about the extent of human contribution and what to do about it. The debate is also about bad data and dire predictions not coming true. Posit a theory and observe...if observations do not support said theory, start all over, but don't ad hoc the theory with convenient explanations like "a pause". Denial cuts both ways. Denial also means being in denial that the hockey stick predictions have not come to pass and that much of the data was fabricated or fudged. Magical thinking is also a primitive defense mechanism. This includes the idea that world government or psychiatrists on committees never heard of would make any difference. For a more reasoned approach to this issue please listen to Jordan Peterson's podcast with Bjorn Lomborg as they discuss this constructively and not hysterically.

  • What made the 2018 Camp Fire so much more devastating than previous fires?

    Best answer: This fire started on the edge of the town in the early morning darkness. The fire and its smoke were driven by winds of 50-60 mph and the humidity was very low.

    Best answer: This fire started on the edge of the town in the early morning darkness. The fire and its smoke were driven by winds of 50-60 mph and the humidity was very low. The fire spread quickly through neighborhoods. I have had to evacuate my house when a wildfire was approaching it. While the smoke wasn't a problem in my case, the traffic was--it took about 1 hour to get to the freeway (and safety) when it would normally take less than 10 minutes. Now imagine waking up in the early morning darkness and trying to do that when at times you can't even see the road due to the smoke.

    I should mention that in my case, I made the choice to drive TOWARD the fire rather than away from it (I had two choices), because there was already a traffic jam heading the other way--through a narrow canyon on a two-land road with trees overhanging the road. There was no way I wanted to be stuck in a traffic jam in a place like that while my car was incinerated. I don't think the people in Paradise had a choice.

  • If global warming isn’t really a problem why do so many people act as though it is?

    Best answer: I notice you used the word problem. A teenage girl with a zit is a problem.

    Best answer: I notice you used the word problem. A teenage girl with a zit is a problem. There are lots of problems but that doesn't mean we need to drop everything, raise taxes and increase government control of our lives to solve it. Even with all the government intervention you could hope for, that girl will just get another zit. Then what?

    To expand on my point, if you asked the teenage girl, she would tell you that her zit was the greatest problem in the history of the world. That doesn't mean it is something I should lose any sleep over and it doesn't justify spending trillions of dollars on solutions that won't work.

    Best answer: I put my own spin on GC's comparison.
    I was a soldier in Germany before the wall came down. It was West Germany then. We had a treaty that you could enter East Berlin as long you were in uniform. We came to West Berlin because we had an urban warfare exercise where our battalion fought a divisions of Brits. We even made an Army training film called appropriately, Urban Warfare. They showed it to us afterward and I must say it made out company laugh harder than anything I can remember.

    Anyway, it was a real lesson crossing the border and walking with the East German civilians. Actually I expected to be disliked but in fact we were treated like rock stars. Crowded streets of people would all watch us and smile. It was a very strange feeling to be treated like that. They clearly hated the Russians and loved Americans. I saw a sign that said free us brother Russians (in German) or something to that effect but it was a lie. West Berlin was beautiful and clean and the people were productive and happy. The wall was a like a wall between a first world country and a very poor third world country. The difference was so stark that there is no way I can convey it with believable words. Socialism is built on lies and AGW is part of that. Socialism is making slaves of people. They are slaves to the state. Most people that advocate socialism are utterly ignorant about what they support and I didn't say "in my opinion" for a reason. It is a fact. That wall was built like a prison wall because that is exactly what it was. Scores of people died trying to gain their freedom. Of course the Communist said it was to protect them from the other side. Interesting that Democrats now say a wall doesn't work. That one did.

    Obviously non socialists are much cleaner and efficient. Totalitarian regimes like China, Venezuela and Russia don't really care about the environment just as they don't care what their citizens want. If we were to "give up" fossil fuels, it is likely IMO we would eventually end up in a state where we would be eating our pets like they do in Venezuela just to survive

    North Korea emits less than South Korea. It isn't a good goal. It is a mark of a failed state.

    Best answer: The PB is primarily and ambush hunter capturing seals on sea ice while they rest or catching their pup’s, PB’s are excellent swimmers but not compared to a seal they stand little chance of catching a seal in the water. PB’s tradionlly starve over the short Arctic summer and this is the probelmthey face as Arctic summer grow longer and sea ice is slower to return PB’s have to starve for longer, while a PB while eat most anything, including humans they don’t tend to hunt us for the simple reason we don’t have the same energy content as a seal.
    The other half of the deneir story here is claiming sea ice is growing, but this is simply not true.

    Best answer: Great point: Not one environmental doomsday prediction of the past 60 years came to pass. Nobody seems to remember the fact that Time magazine was predicting a global ice age in the 1970s!

    With a perfect record like that, the miracle is anyone not being paid to promote the manmade warming hoax believes it.

    "We've got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy." - Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

    "No matter if the science of global warming is all phony...climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world." - Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

    Alarmists' predictions are based on computer models. They've already been caught faking warming data several times.

    "Wildfires produced by "manmade warming" were supposed to be raging around the world. Yet, as Forbes magazine pointed out recently, the number of wildfires has plummeted 15 percent since 1950, and according the National Academy of Sciences, that trend is likely to continue for decades.

    "On hurricanes and tornadoes, which alarmists assured were going to get more extreme and more frequent, it probably would have been hard for “experts” to be more wrong. “When the 2014 hurricane season starts it will have been 3,142 days since the last Category 3+ storm made landfall in the U.S., shattering the record for the longest stretch between U.S. intense hurricanes since 1900,” noted professor of environmental studies Roger Pielke, Jr. at the University of Colorado.

    On January 8, 2015, meanwhile, the Weather Channel reported: “In the last three years, there have never been fewer tornadoes in the United States since record-keeping began in 1950.”

    First the threat was global cooling, then global warming, now downgraded to "climate change", as if a dynamically changing climate wasn't already a thing for millions of years.
