    On that I can half agree with you, the whole topic has been polarized into alarmist idiocy vs YOLO. I think Trump's approach is the sensible one. Focus on clean air and water, and keeping businesses in the US. We're not the world, that's about what we can do. International climate treaties are unenforceable and often anti-business and/or crony profiteering, and most environmentalists are insane.

    Damn.

    Fine. I'll call off the liberal death squad.

    I just hope I can get my deposit back.
    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    Meh. I don't think you understand basic science, but that doesn't mean that I want to draw you into an argument about it. Though I did seriously consider trying to explain the difference between a regression model, correlations, and experiments; I realize that it would be completely futile.

    There is no way I am going to convince you of anything. You'll either continue to ignore (Konnin) or attack (the oil shill) everything from a religious perspective, pretending as though there people out there that don't think climate change is a thing. Calling climate change a hoax doesn't mean that there are people that don't think fossil fuels have zero effect-- it's a statement that the proposed "solutions" are a scam. It's a matter of degree of problem, and what can be realistically done about it. You don't even understand the basic position of the skeptic here. Trying to discuss a scientific paper with you would result in you accusing me of "shifting the argument about science", and probably in me having to award you another donkey brain certificate. I'm seriously glad I never had to teach someone like you when I was a graduate student, I'd have probably gotten fired.

    I honestly don't have the energy for it. So whatever Donkey, you win.

    Now, I hope that article is some kind of satire, but in this day and age it's hard to tell. The line that, "Colleen Munther, a meteorologist at NOAA, told reporters that the Trump administration has already had a detrimental impact on the planet. “Floods have increased in intensity, and hurricanes are beginning to exhibit racial bias,” she said." was so fucking funny that I had to share it.

    I don't immediately see anything about any Colleen Munther and they don't link the supposed alarming progressive research.

    I think whoever does that little blog is trying to be satirical... at least in part?

    Maybe even just making shit up and farming clicks for advertisements.

    That would be my guess, but joke's on them, all of us block adverts. Would be good facebook fodder for old people though. Fairly certain this is fake news.

    “give me salt and vinegar and I’ll eat his liver.”

    Have we talked about this guy? The way he's going about things is almost certainly causing horrific injustice as collateral damage, but one must acknowledge he's a BAMF. A thug for the people, instead of just a self centered thug.

    I read a related article and it was pretty hilarious. "Activists believe the problem could be better resolved by eliminating poverty." This was in response to him killing massive amounts of drug dealers and violent gangs. Man, that shit's genius. I don't know why we don't solve all our problems that way here. If we just magically make everyone well off bad societal problems will go away. They don't need to work for a living, imagine how much ART they could create. Good souled people will gladly contribute all of their waking ours to enabling the sloth of others. I laugh but people think this way...because they are fucking retarded. Everyone is looking for a free ride. So, they vote in socialists - then do forced labor at gulag. It may be a form of justice, but I wish people were less retarded.

    Also, Mythbusters disappoint. Entertainers need to learn to just keep their mouths shut when they are not acting as our dancing monkeys.

    I have to believe that either 1. All celebrities are robots or 2. Being controlled in some way. The ridiculous amount of them that have come out/coming out as the crazy side of leftist is shocking. Half the population voted for Trump. If you were to believe other articles/polls, it was more than half. Whats the deal?

    This nigga for real crazy. He is what the left thinks Donald Trump is. The thing that I will find interesting is whether or not it works in a few decades. It's really too bad someone like him isn't in Mexico right now.

    Austria needs to go french revolution on their leaders. More context to the earlier clip. We might not need right wing death squads just yet, but they do most certainly.

    Favorite part:
    There was a white female student that kept making glares at me and another student. She would glare at both of us and then continue to proceed on her phone. This proceeded for 2 hours. Both me and the victim were Asian American women.

    So, Ann Coulter isn't speaking at Berkeley but a bunch of alt-lite and alt-right are showing up in her stead - reading her speech, and then giving a platform to several alt-lite speakers. Given Berkeley police's track record in "standing down" in anything Antifa is involved in, it could get very ugly. The alt-right attendees in particular are highly organized. If Antifa was smart (they're not), they wouldn't show up. Antifa will be bringing knives and guns into it, and there will be Oath Keepers and 1488'ers that will (enthusiastically and more effectively) respond in kind. If police enable Antifa in this instance it's likely people will die, and those preventable deaths will be on the heads of the mayor of Berkeley (Antifa supporter), the Chief of Police, and the college administration that refuses to expel students who engage in terrorism. Lets not mince words, that's exactly what's going on here. Police standing down for terrorists.

    This is the kind of shit you have to keep in mind when suddenly there are tons of people claiming to support this stuff around election times...
