  • I think these past few posts show what the true issue is. As I said, the climate debate is an ideological argument masquerading as science.

    It’s not the science that bothers deniers. It’s the solutions.

    Btw, India just announced they’ll be closing their coal generation plants and switching to solar. Somehow they’ve managed to get it down to $.03 per kWh. They didn’t get the message that it doesn’t work and, well, went ahead and made it work.

      Unlikely unless it's heavily subsidized. Solar is never cheap-- or reliable.

        That’s absolutely true. In the good old USA.

            If these scientists are so brilliant, why aren't they calling for solutions that work instead of ones that are politically correct with the Left?
            Because the Left will give them money!! Our money!!!
            Leadership is the ability to rise above conventional wisdom.

            • What's wrong with this article?

              https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...rs/2622212001/

              Hint: There is more than one correct answer, but all of them discredit the article in it's entirety.

                New Zealand has the cleanest air, not the USA. Denmark has the cleanest water, not the USA.

                Trump is wrong.

                • Basically, he's more right than wrong but what he claimed is obviously pure Trump hyperbole, bragging, and over-the-top bluster of the sort he seems to do on everything every time he opens his mouth.

                      And the liberals response is to ban our plastic bags and straws no effort is made to put the blame on their future immigrant voters who are responsible for 90% of the garbage

                      • Great Galloping Ghosts of Gorebal!! This again?

                        Currently, there is no intelligent solution to the warming of parts of the planet, and even if we could, I would not want us to because we aren't even remotely smart enough to tamper with planetary weather and climate.

                        As for the rest, America is already doing its part. Time for the nasty, polluting nations like China, India, Russia, Mexico and the Middle East to stop whining and get with the program. The UN can shriek at them for next couple of decades for a change.

                                WTF? Immigrant voters are responsible for 90% of the garbage? I'd like to see actual proof of that.
