Trump's claim climate change is a hoax by the Chinese to hurt U.S. industry? No, what that was was a lie.
Trump's latest effort is "I think something's happening. Something's changing and it'll change back again. I don't think it's a hoax," in his last 60-minutes interview.

That is probably too strong even for the likes of valhamic or Breeal who insist we are still in a 1950s climate.

So after New York experiences a metre of sea level rise, and everyone has gone elsewhere, and all Trump's expensive real-estate has become valueless, some time in the future the seas will recede and Barron Trump's children or grandchildren can move back into a refurbished Trump Tower as if nothing had happened? Well, that's nice to know.

So, after spending billions on storm damage clean up, in two decades time the storms will stop by magic, and the money will all be returned?

It is like admitting your have cancer, but you know it is going to go away in a couple of years. It must, because Trump says so.

What a fool. Excuses for the fools he thinks his followers are.

Same old ineffective fear mongering nonsense, it's completely ignored in the real world, proper order too.

Climate scientist Phil Duffy in an interview with The Hill said the report is "remarkable" because it presents a "parallel universe" within the administration — on the one hand, there are the "federal agencies ... who are with the mainstream scientific consensus," and on the other, Trump says he isn't sure if climate change is "man-made."

The report estimates that around 92 percent of climate change can be attributed to the harmful effects of human actions.
Five major takeaways from the federal climate change report | TheHill

  1. The report directly contradicts statements made by Trump
  2. Its recommendations are at odds with Trump's deregulatory agenda
  3. Some claim the report's Black Friday release was intended to bury its findings
  4. Climate change could slash up to 1/10th of United States' GDP by 2100
  5. Climate change will have devastating impact on marginalized communities

It won't take long before it dawns on someone like Trump that when climate change has to be acknowledged that it can then be blamed on the marginalised communities most at risk.

There's no chance anyone like him would start pointing the finger at oil and extraction industry shareholders. The thing is with the deniers like Trump is that basically he's an old man with probably few years left to live. So why should he or anyone else of his generation embrace sudden change?

Just leave a note for the next two generations telling them you have absolute faith in their ability to treat any ensuing crisis as an initiative test. And, y'know, trust in mr jesus. Or sump'n.

You are right. Trump is just a cranky old fart whose brain is still in the 1950s, the heyday of fossil fuel expansion.

Here's what you really need to take away from this BS report.






Dr. John Dunn: "Two years into the Trump administration it is sad to see this 400-page pile of crap."

Climate expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The claim of economic damage from climate change is based on a 15 degree F temperature increase that is double the "most extreme value reported elsewhere in the report." The "sole editor" of this claim in the report was an alumni of the Center for American Progress, which is also funded by Tom Styer."

There are plenty of young people at this gig in France, Trump appears to be in very good company. Climate change enforcement with tear gas!

Police use tear gas as new Yellow Vest rallies against govt fuel tax reforms hit Paris (WATCH LIVE) — RT World News

An Earth Day warning about Climate Change .... in 1972 ....


The first President to warn Congress about Climate Change was .... Lyndon Baines Johnson ...

LBJ's climate warning 50 years ago - do we have your attention yet?

Within a few short centuries, we are returning to the air a significant part of the carbon that was extracted by plants and buried in the sediments during half a billion years

Through his worldwide industrial civilization, Man is unwittingly conducting a vast geophysical experiment. Within a few generations he is burning the fossil fuels that slowly accumulated in the earth over the past 500 million years

By the year 2000 the increase in CO2 will be close to 25%. This may be sufficient to produce measurable and perhaps marked changes in climate.

From the article in question:

"Anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers, even flat-earthers are on the rise. Part of the reason for this is the promotion of fuzzy thinking as a positive political statement. All those people who were told in school that their opinions lack any meaningful support and are filled with logical fallacies can now band together in shared ignorance masquerading as conservative ethos."

Sound familiar? :rolleyes:

Having spent over a decade arguing with climate change deniers, I see this as several streams merging into a flood .... all the crackpots mentioned above, along with Apollo mission hoaxers, 9/11 Troofers, Kennedy assassination Troofers, Creationists, Holocaust deniers, Obama Birthers, George Soros demonisers, Sandy Hook False Flaggers .... any crackpot belief (including come very vicious ones) can gather itself a following on social media .... some of these are harmless .... but what happens when the President, whose position demands calmness and rational argument, is a willing victim to many of them, and uses them to justify chaotic policies .... ?
