I longline for sharks from jan 1st till the fed quotas are filled. If you think sharks are bad now just wait, we didnt get fish this yr because of a bullshit rule passed by Texas. That law has effectively stopped 99% of all shark long lining in State and Fed waters.

Who you gonna believe, the scientist or your lying eyes?

The first link is about Al Gore, that lovable huckster, and how he got this ball rolling.

https://www.heartland.org/news-opini...-warming-fraud

The second link is about how California lawmakers attempted legislation allowing for the prosecution of "Climate Change Deniers" - that could be YOU ! You don't know whether to laugh or cry.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ange-skeptics/

As more and more millennials drink the stupid soup, and more and more illegals vote their ignorance, the chances increase that this type of legislation will become reality. ThoughtCrime.

Dystopian nightmare coming to a blue state near you.


Cheers (with a libation made at a distillery with a carbon footprint as large as Al Gore's mansion !), T.

There's also the issue of what we, as Americans, can realistically do about it without bankrupting ourselves.

I fly for a cargo airline and am in India and China frequently on business. The amount of pollution in these two countries is truly staggering, you'd have to see it to believe it. It's a rare day when I can see the ground from 1000' while descending into Delhi or Shanghai. It's rare that I can see any of the ground anywhere over the entire country of India. In China it's the same until you get about halfway into the country towards Kazakhstan or Mongolia before it clears up enough to see the ground. The reason it gets clear there is that it's mostly uninhabited, there isn't any industry or power plants to generate pollution. There are no places in the U.S. that are anywhere near as polluted as India and China, not even close. The smoggiest day going into LAX is better than the best day going into Delhi.

We've scrubbed our emissions from power plants, industry, and vehicles to be as clean as practical, any further cleansing would cost big bucks. Diesel pickups have so much emissions equipment on them now that the air going into them is dirtier than the exhaust coming out of them. China and India on the other hand DO NOT CARE at all about their emissions, they're pumping crap into the air with abandon and have no intention of changing that. We can add $20,000 worth of emissions equipment to new vehicles to scrub the last fraction of pollution from the exhaust but for what? China will gladly dump a trillion times that amount into the air every second. Last I checked we were on the same planet as them so without them on board trying to clean up the atmosphere by ourselves is pointless. Everybody likes clean air but we can't do it by ourselves and bankrupting ourselves trying to scrub the tiniest amounts of pollution from the U.S. isn't going to help anything while they constantly turn up the fire. In the U.S. we're trying to bail out the boat with a teaspoon while China and India are busy knocking foot wide holes in the bottom.

Hard to believe with all the information out there some people still buy into the climate hoax.

We have less than 12 years left so what does it matter?
