    I guess insurance companies don't get memes.
    Triggered by memes that have substance you need a safe space now!

      • Interesting couple of articles to add to the debate: Scientists have gotten predictions of global warming right since the 1970s


        The first systematic review finds that climate models have been remarkably accurate.

        • Not that surprising. Exxon scientists knew about climate change back in the 70's as well.

            It is the brainwashing that is common in the public that scientists doesn't make mistakes, that they don't have agendas, that they don't have emotional axes to grind.

            They have all the faults the rest of us have.

            But.

            Their propaganda has brainwashed the general public into believing that they are somehow above those kind of things....which they are not.

            The political agenda has dictated that man (more so the white man, the focus is always on the white man) is responsible for climate change, and THAT is what scientists (who are given a platform) will continuously argue, together with leftard politicians and various activists.

            Climate scientists manipulates the truth to make things what they want it to be (in this case fit the current narrative and agenda) thus they have have ZERO regard for the actual truth itself.

            So....
            Climate change is, according to them, caused by sexist white males, the patriarchy, abusive racist white men,and also caused by inequality and general like misogyny.

            Greta also says so....It must therefore be true.
            the ability of people to beleive that a 16 year old girl somehow controls and heads a vast network of evil greenies does make we wonder if someone had their engagement ring mAileD back:

              A few may be right about the rising temperatures but the doom and gloom chicken little predictions still have failed to materialize instead of any balanced approach to climate change predictions they go with apocalyptic scenarios losing all credibility
              It’s more productive to deal with the effects of climate change then to foolishly focus on trying to stop it through carbon taxes and inefficient energy sources

                The climate has steadily been getting warmer since the last ice age.

                I've never heard (or read) anyone make such an argument.

                They did however opt to select a mentally retarded girl to help forward their agenda by giving her a platform from which to speak thou.

                    This is technically true. No one is disputing it. It is the time scale and the rate of change in the past century that is concerning people.

                    At the risk of contradicting one of my own objections, xkcd's explanation is still the clearest.

                      Autism/Asperger's are not the same and it is scienfically inaccurate to refer them as such as well as insulting to those with family members with Asperger's.

                      Mental Retardation and Autism

                      Note: The term “mental retardation” is synonymous with “intellectual disability.” While the former is slowly losing favor to the latter, we have kept the use of “mental retardation” for the sake of outreach, as the term is still widely used by families
                      Autism is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects how individuals communicate and behave. It is known as a Spectrum Disorder (Autism Spectrum Disorder or ASD) because there is a broad spectrum of symptoms and their severity among people with autism. In this sense, ASD is an individualized disorder—while there are general symptoms, their onset, sever-ity, and presentation are unique for each person.Mental retardation is characterized by a slow development of motor skills, language skills, social skills, and occupational skills. Individuals with mental retardation score below-average on intel-lectual capacity tests, specifically having an Intelligence Quotient (IQ) score of 70 or below. Around 70% of individuals with ASD will also have other disorders, like ADHD, language disor-ders, or mental retardation.
                      Are Autism and Mental Retardation the Same?

                      In short, no. ASD can coexist with other disorders, including mental retardation, but being diag-nosed with one does not guarantee a simultaneous diagnosis of the other. In general, children with ASD do not have diminished cognitive functioning and can score average to above-average on intellectual capacity tests. The gray area of confusion comes about because children with autism struggle with communication and learning behaviors. They may have limited verbal skills,may not respond to verbal prompts, or they may show a general disinterest in the world around them, all of which coincide with the indications of mental retardation.Mental retardation is not an offshoot or result of autism. Rather, autism presents more often in people with mental retardation (around 70% of children with mental retardation also have autism). While children with mental retardation often exhibit “autistic behaviors,” they may not manifest all of the symptoms and often have others that are unique to mental retardation.



                      So rather than baseless slurs, perhaps some actual evidence or sources may be shared if the poster truely believes this and is not just trying to be provocative.

                          Mentally retarded i.e mentally challenged, as in pulled back, as in not advanced in their thinking.

                          If you choose to take offense on others behalf that is entirely up to you.

                              Others much more informed on the details can answer that both sites are run by left wingers which makes them biased on the issue but the argument and question I continue to make is why should anyone believe and support their solutions to anything they predict about the apocalyptic effects about climate change that they continue to make knowing how wrong they always are?
                              That’s the bottom line that everyone needs to know
                              The future effects of climate change predicted by them haven’t been disastrous not much has changed that we can’t adapt to when it happens

                                Oh not offended at all. Just pointing out that no one with any scientific credibility equates Aspergers with mental retardation. That seems to be the realm of people who value personal insults over intelligent discussion.

                                Have a great 2020 and thanks for the input.
