I believe a good portion of this opinion piece is over the top and more than a little racist. However, there are also some VERY good points to ponder. You blanketed the article as 'nonsense' , but I can't let you do that until you can 'prove' it. So I'll ask you to remind me (my memory fails on these) of which acts of terrorism in Europe, post WWII, were perpetrated on random civilians by Jews? What part of history curriculum has been brought to a vote for fear of offending, and then dealing with the actions of offended Jews? And finally, isn't the entirety of Britain 'racist' if they were to omit the holocaust? I mean, that action is denying the struggles of an entire race, AND painting another as violent......

Tex-s,

What am i missing? I do t see a single racist comment in it.....I do see some religious bigotry, perhaps, but racist?

Please edify me as I must be missing it.

... the default policy will be to permit transgender students to compete in sports based on their self-declared gender identity. According to the announcement:

Transgender and gender expansive (sic) students must be given the same opportunities to participate in physical education as all other students... a student must be permitted to participate in physical education, intramural sports, and competitive athletic activities and contact sports in accordance with the gender identity they assert at school...

Another moronic step down to the lowest common denominator.

This will last until boys identifying as girls start winning everything.

Get it straight, it was a FOX story, not mine. I have never supported coyotes.
I used the story to give an example of a child being taken out of custody on the border and used in farming. You and others were not sure this had ever happened. I showed it has. Amusing you automatically assume it was trump, I guess it just sounds like a trumpian thing to do.


No....you’re a freaking liar, period!

“Stage props”, so the left is so strong that they forced Trump to separate babies and children from parents and sell the to white American parents under the guise of adoption. Darn I need to meet those strong left wing people. Where is this “left” power move happening so I can see it.


More moronic drivel. Get a life.

That’s because there is no reliable data, just the moronic ramblings of you and your anti-American ilk.

Try telling that to the vast majority of Americans sitting under the huge heat dome over the United States this weekend with the heat indices running upwards of the 100° to 115°+ degree mark.

Try countering the HOTTEST June on record in 2019.

The planet is not cooling by any means when crops along the equator are failing year after year due to HIGH heat and a lack of water.

Soybeans grown in Brazil have less protein in them this year than in previous years.

A decrease in CO2, causes the Ozone levels to rise, contributing to an increase in skin cancer.

Many of the same people sitting under the heat dome right now were under the polar vortex a few months ago.....do you really think weather patterns change that quickly???!

LWW reported above... " 291 per year <under Trump>. The average yearly deaths under President Obama stood at 372 and 382 under the Bush administration."

And the Global temperature is cooling and the CO2 is decreasing and 20 regulations have been removed for each new one added. Do things really improve with under-reporting... yep. Or perhaps it is true info. If True how was death reduction accomplished... what positive steps were taken to prevent deaths. Did the troops and machine guns at the border help?

Well.....yes, CO2 IS DECREASING IN THE U.S.

Also, I would say there has been OVER reporting, not under reporting, under Trump.

Man being the cause is debatable but evidence is stacking up to it being more evident. The argument that climate change has happened in the past is true but what is alarming is the speed of the present change. The destruction of the rain forest has never happened previously and we are destroying the lungs of the planet.


True, Bob Smith. The disappearing carbon sinks are possibly the biggest issue of the day!

Since the U.S. leads the world in CO2 reductions, re-foresting, and developing new grasslands I will wait for the rest of the world to catch up before I endorse destroying the first world economies just to STILL fail, per the climate alarmists’ models, to do anything measurable by the end of the century.😎

Again, sane folks do not deny climate change, or separately global warming. However we're only around 150 years since the end of the last mini-ice age. And the fact that industrial output surged at the end of WWII, has contributed to increased global temperatures. No denial there.

Carbon dioxide levels are at record low levels. Our saturation of +/- .04%, is far below historical levels. Increased CO2 levels are called for. Increased CO2 extends the crop growing season, traps moisture in the ground, insures higher crop yields. And people benefit from warmer temperatures, not colder. Cold causes drought, not heat, because cold air can't hold moisture. The Antarctic is a perfect example.

Consensus is not science, despite NASA's statement. Science requires that ideas be posited, challenged, re-posited, and challenged again. It's a never-ending cycle of testing and retesting; measuring and remeasuring. No science is ever settled, because technology development never stops; and it's technology that drives science, not the other way around.

Very true, Dennis.

In a nutshell, along with everything we just don't know about the changing weather, EVERY part of climate “science” suffers from measurement problems, modeling problems, and the differences between models and reality.

There are five big naturally occurring greenhouse gases, and due to politics and money we only seem to discuss just one of them.....CO2.

One should ask themselves why just the one?

The answer is pretty clear, especially when asks the question of what happens if there were no CO2.

It shows a list of groups that support this conclusion within the US and the article forwards to worldwide organizations. Many go into more detail. I kinda go with them over our Fearless Leader (PS I primarily vote Republican).

The problem isn't just creating greenhouse gases - the amount of forests is shrinking rapidly, the Amazon basin, etc.

On the Berkley comment - nope didn't go there, but when I attended two different campuses of Rutgers back in the late 60's and early 70's we were called "Berkeley East." I am very conservative on some issues and liberal on others - notably healthcare as I'm a cancer counselor and have seen how the average Joe gets ripped off by the system. Oh, back on the Berkley issue, conservatives will be happy to know that I almost got into a fistfight with an SDS member in one of my classes. He strongly objected to me calling him a parasite.

I will note that one should always investigate the “97% consensus” canard before reusing it.

Here's the 500 million year GEOCARB CO2 graph.  Time 0 is today at 380ppm.  It's the lowest point on the graph all the way to the left.  The 1st smaller peak is the dinosaur era at 1000-2200ppm.  And the large peak is the Cambrian explosion which was the most prolific creation event for animals in history at greater than 7000ppm.  Al Gore and the fake scientists want you to believe that CO2 going from 350ppm to 380ppm over 180 years is life threatening.  They should study this graph.  Because the most prolific times ever for animal and plant life were during periods where CO2 was dramatically higher than today.  It's b/c plants need CO2 for food.  And the more plants grow, the more animals grow.  That is the evidence.   It's pretty simple.

There's a fairly good, but brief article in Time on the current warming trend:

I have health issues and for the last few days, I've made my trips outside as infrequent as possible. For the last few years, I've had some
tough conversations with very conservative friends about global warming. Several have insisted that its BS, but I tend to read the scientific reports. We currently have an administration that doesn't believe it, but the evidence is pretty much damning. This article
only hits a few points. My concern is for my children and grandchildren. How will they live when the current heatwave becomes the norm and not an aberration?

Funny.....I’ve yet to hear a conservative of any ilk say the weather isn’t changing. However, I’ve heard many if not most say there isn’t scientific proof that humans are the direct and major cause of it, which is true if you really do read the science.

That is actually the debate, followed closely by exactly what can man do to slow it if it’s true,

"Carter used it 40 years ago, in 1979 to keep Iranians out of the United States. But Carter actually did more.

He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government, then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979."

This is not a place for this kind of discussion. But if you do that, don't cherry pick the facts. We were "at war" with Iran back then because of the American hostages situation. Last time I looked, we weren't at war with Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and numerous other Central and South American countries.

I’m pretty sure we did not declare war on Iran, so maybe you should use facts when jumping on others about alleged cherry picking.
