Old news posted multiple times.

I only say that because it seems to be the new THT "sport" to jump all over posts that are repeats of prior posts, even if those posts were over 6 years ago.

sorry you are caught in the crossfire

Global warming? I don't give a f+ck, I REALLY don't. I won't be around to deal with it.

The internet changed the way people think. You no longer have one expert giving his thoughts and everyone having to believe them.

Its why the older generation easily gets scammed online. They grew up believing what people told them. They didnt believe in agendas or marketing.

Pretty sure the glaciers have been melting for the past 20,000 years. Just think of how much fresh water will be available when they do.

To be honest, I really do have a hard time finding a reason why the earth warming a couple degrees is a bad thing. Sounds like a positive

I'm old enough to remember the United States government recommending a diet centered around bread and pasta, and the concept of replacing fat with sugar as a healthy tradeoff (looking at you, Snack Wells).

As such, I assume that all scientists are:

A. Idiots
B. On the take

And thus I don't listen to pretty much anything they say. It's all agenda driven. Let the glaciers melt. The water is delicious.

northerners move down south to escape the oppressive taxes and deterioration, of civil liberties. The warm weather is just a bonus.

The Parks Dept put up signs in Glacier National park in the early teens, telling people to take pictures of the glaciers, because soon they would all be gone, they took them down last year, because the glaciers have grown, not shrank, but don't tell Fonda or Greta, they know different

​​​​​​I don't know. After the winter my in laws had in Cleveland last year, Kim Jong Dipshit himself could be the Governor of NC/SC and I'd still want to move down here.

Yep, now it's global warming/climate change. 30 years ago it was HFCs eliminating the ozone. Remember that one? We were all going to die from skin cancer. There was a movie (I think RoboCop) based in the future were there was an add for suntan lotion with an spf of 1000 or so. Obviously, the Inconvenient Truth, pun intended, was it was all false. Heck, before that, in the '70s, there was a tv show called In Search of with Leonard Nimoy interviewed scientist predicting the next ice age. oops
