The Global Warming thread.

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

This September, millions of us will walk out of our workplaces and homes to join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.

Our house is on fire — let’s act like it. We demand climate justice for everyone.

Now events in Charlotte NC, Greenville SC, Evanston IL & several in northwest WA.
It really is time to stop being nice about stupidity.

Given the current abysmal state of the GOP it's difficult for anyone to be "Dumbest", but some Repug always manages to rise to the top of the stinkin' heap.
GOP Senator John Cornyn Torched Over ‘Dumbest’ Climate Change Explainer
One scientist blasted Cornyn for being “utterly, despicably, proudly ignorant” of the threat to the planet.


Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) appeared to display a highly questionable understanding of climate change on Twitter, and promptly got dragged over the coals....

It’s summer, Chuck
Chuck Schumer
‏Verified account @SenSchumer

July 2019 was the hottest month ever, of any month, on record.

Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet.

It’s about our kids. It’s about our health. It’s about the future.

We must act. https://www.noaa.gov/news/july-2019-was ... for-planet
...
Your grandkids will grow up in a decimated planet & they’ll know YOU were a direct cause of it. To protect the wealthy fossil fuel barons who donate to you.

I doubt they’ll ever forgive you.
It's not just "summer," it's the hottest summer ever, and it's just getting worse, like @SenSchumer said.

If that's too complicated for you, then how about this: your grandchildren won't be able to grow the crops that your parents did, it'll be too hot in Texas for them.

It's the climate crisis, John.
Trumpy Trumpy (parody) @outofcontroljb

John Cornyn must have studied science at Trump University.
This may be one of the most ignorant tweets I've seen from an elected official.

In which a sitting US senator is not ashamed to reveal in a three-word tweet how utterly, despicably, proudly ignorant he is of the greatest environmental threat to face the planet. @JohnCornyn
#climatechange
We need to start having a basic science literacy entrance exam for the US Senate.
You call yourself a leader and you can't tell the difference between climate and weather. Are you that ignorant. Actually I think you're not. It's worse. You are willing to sacrifice the planet due to your devotion to corporations and Trump. You're a disgrace.
Less tweeting, more reading, John.
