    Sorry, genius, I was born in the United States and have fought for my country. Your false accusations merely demonstrate ignorance and fear on your part.

      'The contrast simply could not be any more stark. While the top Democrats in the race for the White House shared their detailed plans for addressing the climate crisis, President Trump and a handful of his allies continued to make completely false claims about Hurricane Dorian, even as the storm gained strength and churned toward the Carolinas.'

      'News outlets like the NYT and CNN have noted that climate change makes storms like Dorian more dangerous. This came up repeatedly during CNN's seven-hour town hall event with ten Democratic candidates.'


      'But the president is not interested in talking about the climate crisis. He is interested in defending himself — even though there's no factual defense for his claims that Alabama was going to be "hit" by Dorian. Trump's own federal agencies denied it when he first brought it up on Sunday. But he is undeterred.'

      'Why this matters: The president spread false info during an emergency situation three times in one day. Then insisted he was right when he was corrected. And he's still swearing he was right and suggesting news outlets should apologize to him. I believe this example of Trump's reality distortion field is so egregious that it will be recorded in history books...'

      'During a briefing in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Trump held up an altered forecast map from last Thursday with parts of Alabama amateurishly circled in pen. His display of the map was clearly meant to back up his bogus assertions about Alabama being in the path of Dorian.'

      'Later in the day, he insisted that many computer models said "Alabama was going to be hit very hard." He even tweeted out an old "spaghetti model" image that showed potential impacts to the state. But the image was from last Wednesday. Trump suddenly and falsely claimed Alabama was at risk on Sunday, when Dorian was showing signs of staying off the coast. What he said was objectively false. The people trying to defend him are denying basic geography and science lessons that we all learned in school. But they're trying anyway...'

      'And this is how it happens, another case study in the destruction of a shared truth. Truth be told, I feel like part of the problem, even expending any energy explaining that Alabama wasn't in the path of Dorian. But the president's actions — lying and then insisting he didn't lie, in the face of all available evidence — need to be documented.'

        IF, and it's a big IF, there is a "climate crisis" it is largely of Nature's cause and human factors(anthropogenic) remain minor ones.

        Climate is always changing, in flux, various geological and ice core records show this. Those records over the past several hundreds of thousands of years show we have about a 4 out of 5 chance such will result in an Ice Age/Glaciation, rather than "Global Warming". In fact, we are still working our way out of the last Ice Age and such a process is not assured, we could plunge right back into one, especially if humans start to engage in ill thought out or understood geo-engineering. Best presented in this book; Climate Crash: Abrupt Climate Change and What It Means for Our Future


        https://www.amazon.com/Climate-Crash.../dp/0309093120

        As for "Carbon"; at 400 ppm(dry) (parts per million), Carbon Dioxide/CO2 is only 0.04% of dry (non water vapor factored) atmosphere, and doesn't retain heat so much as slow the transition time of absorption and re-emit of a couple small bands of infra-red("heat") radiation. Common Sense and basic math related to physics and chemistry would show that in this regard 0.04% will have limited affect upon the other 99.96% of the atmosphere.

        Furthermore with 99.9% of life on this planet, Flora/"green plants" needing about 300ppm for minimum optimal health and life and with we 0.01% of animal life,Fauna, needing that Flora to exist, a one third excess(400ppm versus 300ppm) of an essential component for Life, one other last thing humans should be doing is major tweaking and alteration of carbon/CO2 levels.

        Global(planet Earth) warming, or cooling, is the result of two major 'heat' sources, external via Sol, the Sun, and internal via radiative heat rising from Earth's interior/core. It is fluctuations of these plus slight modifiers of orbit, inclination, and other conductive factors that have caused Ice Ages more often than Warming Periods in recent geological past.

        The whole "climate crisis" as expressed in terms of anthropogenic ~ human caused; "Climate Change"/"Global Warming" is largely sham science and flim-flam politics driven by "scientists" pursuing the terms of available funding (job$/income$) and social reconstructionists using a false crisis to steer social restructuring towards a more "socialist" and more powerful Central State New Order.

              1. The map you posted is many days older than Trump's statement about Alabama (one can see the cone of uncertainty going back as far as Wednesday while Trump made his comments on Sunday)

              2. The map does not show just hurricane level winds. It shows a projection of any area which MAY be affected by wind equal or in excess of 39 mph


              Details:
              .
              1.

              By the time Trump posted his stupid tweet in the early morning of SUNDAY 1st September (https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...ne-dorian.html), it was already known (since 5 am of the same day) that the hurricane was turning North West and there was no name of Alabama in the areas affected by the hurricane. I posted in the other thread the links
              . (https://forums.armchairgeneral.com/f...88#post5139188)

              Conclusion: Trump did not even bother to get the latest updates before making public comments about the hurricane's effect on Alabama.
              His incompetence is really shocking!

              2.

              The pretty green colors you see on the map (which again come from a map created around WEDNESDAY) do not show hurricane level winds. Here is the legend from a similar map posted by Nichols. (https://forums.armchairgeneral.com/f...tch?id=5139149) The colors show the probability of certain areas experiencing wind speeds equal or in excess of 39 mph
              According to the https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutgloss.shtml

              Wind speed for hurricane level are equal or in in excess of 74 mph.

              Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale: The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is a 1 to 5 categorization based on the hurricane's intensity at the indicated time. The scale provides examples of the type of damage and impacts in the United States associated with winds of the indicated intensity. The following table shows the scale broken down by winds:
              Category Wind Speed (mph) Damage
              1 74 - 95 Very dangerous winds will produce some damage
              2 96 - 110 Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage
              3 111 - 129 Devastating damage will occur
              4 130 - 156 Catastrophic damage will occur
              5 > 156 Catastrophic damage will occur
              .
              .
              And to put all the above in a context familiar to military history buffs, here is one question to the military experts here:

              What is the first thing that a military commander will do after he wakes up in a headquarters during operations? From what I know, the answer is is to get a briefing and updates from his staff about what happened while he was sleeping.

              But, of course, Trump's "leadership style" cannot follow such "conventional" practice. So, it seems that the first thing that the CIC does after he wakes up is to scratch his crotch and start tweeting nonsense using information which is many days old to warn his flock about a physical phenomenon which is very dynamic in nature . And when it is proven that the CIC is clueless, he uses as an excuse these 4 days old maps which by the NOAA itself could not be used (and were not used) to issue any warning about Alabama.

                Trump is apparently the person who doctored the map of Hurricane Doria's initial plot. By committing a criminal act, the president of the United States is now a criminal. He's living in fantasyland.

                https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

                'He posted nine tweets and five maps about Alabama and the big storm.'

                'He defended a doctored hurricane map that had been altered with a black Sharpie to include the state.'

                'And he had his White House release a 225-word statement defending his erroneous warnings that Alabama was “going to get a piece” of the storm.'

                'As Hurricane Dorian battered the Carolinas with torrential rain and wind Thursday, President Trump remained fixated on sunny Alabama — a state he falsely claimed was in the storm’s crosshairs long after it was in the clear.'

                'For a fourth straight day, Trump’s White House sought to clean up the president’s mistaken warnings to Alabama from Sunday, seeking to defend Trump’s tweets by releasing statements, disseminating alternative hurricane maps and attacking the media.'

                'Trump also took to Twitter again to defend his use of a doctored and outdated hurricane map that looped in Alabama using black marker — the latest iteration in a days-long, administration-wide campaign on the topic.'

                'In effect, Trump was attempting to bend time — claiming that a projection that was several days out of date was accurate at the time he warned Alabama of a dire threat that didn’t exist.'

                '“Just as I said, Alabama was originally projected to be hit,” Trump tweeted Thursday, highlighting week-old maps that showed a low probability of tropical-storm winds in a small corner of Alabama. “The Fake News denies it!”'

                'Trump’s fixation on his erroneous Dorian warnings underscores a long history of defending inaccurate claims — from the crowd size at his inaugural address to false claims of voter fraud in 2016 to fictional “unknown Middle Easterners” streaming across the southern border in migrant caravans.'

                  What criminal act did the POTUS commit?

                    He defaced an official weather report by the National Weather Service which is illegal. Please try to keep up instead of standing up and supporting Trump no matter what he does on a daily basis.

                    Asking moronic questions doesn't help your case either.

                    https://www.msnbc.com/the-beat-with-...ie-68199493549

                    The law that applies is:

                    'The National Hurricane Center did not include Alabama in its forecast, and some observers
                    pointed out
                    on Wednesday that Trump's altered map may have violated federal law, 18 US Code § 2074.
                    '

                                And that has what to do with the topic?

                                The right wing default positions are two-fold: When Trump is caught either bring up Obama or Hillary Clinton.

                                That is pathetic. The requisite character is obviously not present with Trump supporters.
