Bill Nye is a champion of the global warning crowd and in the news constantly despite not having an advanced science degree. Jon Stewart continues to run his mouth despite officially retiring from the Comedy Central's the daily show 2 years ago. Sorry that isn't a recent enough pop culture reference for you.

Which pizza place are you delivering for? no good 'za in Elmira that I am aware of.

And Nye has a new effin' show. Talk about a career kept alive through nostalgia.

Jon Stewart indeed needs to keep his mouth shut. He comes back out of nowhere lecturing tv hosts while remaining completely disconnected from the current political climate. Yeah, real easy to throw rocks when you don't have to steer the ship of a nightly show.

I'm not going to debate climate change with you. Just stop trying to conflate belief and concern in climate change with the liberal political echo chambers of TV shows. You're also at odds with an overwhelming majority of the scientific community.

(Despite my classification of Jon Stewart/John Oliver type shows as echo chambers, I think those guys have done a lot of great work, obvi)

Global warming,... sorry, man made global warming may or may not be a thing, but I'll just say that after discarding my life into dumpster, I'm sure glad I moved 40 feet higher in elevation. Should gain me at least a couple of years.

I live at 590 ft above sea level on top of a hill. Never can be too safe.

Way to look on the bright side, guys!  Global warming is the democratization of waterfront property!

Again, you don't understand it so it can't be real.

 

I don't understand how my doctor measures my cholesterol, but when he tells me its high, I listen to him and change my diet.

 

And doctors are routinely prescribe people drugs they don't need to be on because they're bought off by pharmaceutical companies. 

 

Sorta like how college professors are paid for by US grants to "conclude" there is global warming.............. or sorta like petroleum companies paying for studies to "conclude" that they are clean and have no impact on the environment.

I recognize that there are free thinkers who have arrived at a belief in global warming, or man made global warming, of their own accord based on their own review of available evidence.  I also firmly believe that a majority of the country can't think their way out of a paper bag, and are perfectly content reading no further than the headlines of articles that show up in their facebook timeline, and get their "news" from the likes of Jon Stewart.  Even those moderately interested in politics and the environment are perpetually blasted by a lockstep media that won't tolerate freedom of thought.  The modern media has raised a generation of sycophants.  Google and facebook ensure contrary thoughts are never seen.  Confirmation bias takes care of the rest.

 

Many people have no idea why they believe in man made global warming - they just know that they do.

Although I am one who believes that we should be doing everything in our power to keep this planet clean, I agree with this 100%. Instead of putting so much time and money into expounding global warming, how about we take that time and money and do something about cleaning up toxic third world cesspools. Global warming is debatable, however our rivers, streams and jungles becoming this ↓↓↓↓↓↓ is not. We can adapt to global warming, we can't adapt to destroying our natural resources.

Oh - it doesn't dispute it.  They start off by acknowledging all the problems in using ice bubbles, and then go on to use the data anyway.  It dates back to 1996 - before they learned not to put damaging information in their articles.

yes - in the center of the third picture you can see the thermometer stuck up its ass.

Man made climate change is real. We passed the tipping in the late 70's when we first noticed the change. Sure the earth temp varies... on a scale of centuries or millennium not decades. That's the key. A 1 degree change occurring over 30 years as opposed to 1,000 years.

With that I'm out. I will get banned if I participate any further.

Know what's sad, I got an email today about medical equipment and shortages because a lot of it was manufactured in Puerto Rico, and they don't expect any recourse until well into 2018, it raised a lot of questions, mainly how we will just switch to a few different solutions and act like nothing happened (and people still complained about it) I just don't like humanity sometimes

Say a prayer for my eighty-three year old Dad he and his house is in a direct line for where this fire is going toward Oceanside... he lives near rt 76 up the hill from the old mission St Luis Rey off Rancho Del Oro up on the hill.

https://www.nbcsandi...-462797683.html
Told him to water everything.

It might be our turn.  1000 acre grass fire west of Fort Worth, strong winds blowing from the NW.  I hope this thing doesn't really get going.

 

The advantage of fighting fires here versus California is that the land is flat (mostly) so equipment can get where they need to be. 

 

The two major freeways (I-20 and I-30) are closed west of Ft Worth and the local areas have been evacuated.

Good luck w/ it. Looks like it's far enough away to be put out before it reaches you. Hope the smoke doesn't get too bad.
