If this is true why are fossil fuel companies advisors in charge?

Hello acnewsitics.

acnewsitics | January 16, 2019

Hello sabbia, how are you?

SCCRENDO | January 16, 2019

@acnewsitics. From your mouth to God's ears. Unfortunately God will have to convince 20 Senate Republicans that Trump committed Treason or that the Trump crime syndicate is guilty of any crimes. I think we are more likely to get a useless 60 ft 2000 mile wall wall along the Mexican border before that happens. We need to wait for 2020 to vote the SOBs out

sabbia | January 16, 2019

Thanks for asking @AC. Not doing especially well when 57 Senators think it's okay to relax sanctions on Deripaska. Weird.

sabbia | January 16, 2019

Sorry. 42 Senators think it's okay to relax sanctions.

SCCRENDO | January 16, 2019

@sabbia. Unfortunately they also think it is ok for the Trump crime syndicate to operate out of the white house. I think they believe Kelly Ann Conway when she says there is no tre45on. They are just displaying alternative loyalty.,

Thanks for the link @Mike83. We are in Hilo Hawaii on the big island and will be heading over to Puma area near Kilauea volcanoe, where they had tremendous eruption last year with lots of lava flows.

Mike83 | February 23, 2019

@Tesla-David NIce way to get away from the cold and wet snow. I once rode my bicycle a few decades ago around the Big Island(only 120 miles) over steaming volcanic areas and enjoyed the beautiful views. Enjoy the macadamia nuts, fresh pineapples and scenery.

SO | February 24, 2019

@MitchP85D - it’s scary you need to ask that question.

Mike83 | February 24, 2019

The link at the end of this post by Dr. Holland is comprehensive about how China will overtake the world in auto sales and with EVs. They are not messing around as their people demand cleaner air. The fossil fuel companies hold power in the US and Germany which is an inhibition to progress. Of course local governments and states are not held captive by the fossil fuel cartels. This paradigm shift is happening; Shell is now installing charging also.
Americans are not fooled either and are making Teslas esp. the M3 the best revenue vehicles in the US I believe while ICE vehicle sales are slowing.

SO, I don't "need" to ask the question. I simply WANT to ask the question!

Tesla-David | February 25, 2019

Thanks @iMike83 for link. What a worthless company with zero responsibility for repairing the damage they have caused from their products. I am looking forward to seeing the AG lawsuits win huge judgements against Exxon in the hopefully near future. I would love to see the bankrupted.

MitchP85D | February 26, 2019

That's right. Why don't we all just bankrupt every corporation we don't like. See how much good that does for the retirement accounts for working-class Americans!

I have copied and pasted my comments from the "Climate change is sound thread" over here because I think we need to move the conversation forward and stop with the "rinse and repeat" from every ignorant denier that tries to get their 15 minutes of fame here.

"I am with babyjocko on this. Climate change denial is so "yesterday". Unfortunately our clown president is still trying to revive it. But hopefully soon he will be gone too. Our weathermoron is trying to keep denial alive here but his debating points have been refuted over and over and he is also done. I recommend we just flag and ignore. It's time to move the conversation forward. How about that "green new deal" I am with Ocasio-Cortez and the kids who were dissed by Dianne Feinstein. While Feinstein is likely to do the right thing in the end her dismissive attitude to the kids was appalling. We need to listen to the kids because they are the ones more likely to be impacted by climate change."

Tesla-David | February 26, 2019

@SCCRENDO agree the evidence is now conclusive and not worth debating with our persistent moron. I totally support AOC and the Green New Deal (GND), and was outraged by Feinstein’s remarks to young kids concerned about AGW impacts to their futures and her negative response on GND. I no longer respond to our troll, just flag him.

SCCRENDO | February 26, 2019

@Tesla-David. The other example of the youngsters stepping up to the plate is young Greta Thurnberg who you frequently mention. This is also the future direction of the Democratic party. As an old timer we tend to associate more with the old time liberals. I am definitely more in the Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party. I am presently torn between voting for Bernie vs one of the younger candidates. I think Bernie still has it and has very similar philosophies to me. But is it it time to step aside and let the next generation take over? The good news is that we have plenty of time to decide.

dmm1240 | February 26, 2019

SCCRENDO. I'm personally thrilled with the Democratic Party's pool of candidates. Something there for everybody.

My personal preference at the moment is to hand it over to a new generation. Haven't made up my mind yet and won't for quite a while, let's hear what they all have to say,, but I personally find Kamala Harris intriguing at the moment. She's plenty tough enough to take on you know who.

SCCRENDO | February 26, 2019

My wife and I have been thinking Kamala with the bonus that we live in California and she is one of us. However I was listening to Bernie and he is truly a wise old fart. I was disgusted with the way he attacked Hillary and failed to concede when all was lost. This definitely hurt Hillary and could have cost her the election. I am not completely sure of him as a team player. I am looking forward to some interesting and lively debates as compared to name calling contests in the past Republican series of debates.

Mike83 | February 26, 2019

Kamala Harris. YES she is tough enough to deal with bullies. We must also get rid of the fossil fuel freeloaders who inhibit progress and are keeping America behind other countries.

sabbia | February 26, 2019

@SCC. I agree with the way you plan to deal with the troll. Filthy mouth.

SCCRENDO | February 26, 2019

@Mike. It looks like most of the Dem candidates will get on board with the Green New Deal but it is early days and I have not looked at most of them with any great detail.

Teslakid86 | February 26, 2019

I just finished listening to the book "Where do we go from here" by Bernie Sanders. In it he says that Republicans are owned/controlled by the fossil fuel industry, pharmaceutical industry and wall street. So basically the republican gov't goes by the wants and needs of these industries, not the american people. So what do we need to do? Join the political revolution and take back the gov't for the people, which is what Bernie and a lot of people are doing today :)

MitchP85D | March 20, 2019

Hey Ozone Hole Mike, please note this from the article you posted:

"Unlike the calving of land based sea ice into the sea, the break up of an ice shelf does not itself contribute to sea level rise, because the ice is already floating - just as when the ice in your whiskey melts, the level of the whiskey in your drink does not rise."

Hey jimmy flaggie boy, you gonna flag that one?

Yale University regularly publishes a survey of American attitudes about climate change. The numbers quoted are from the poll posted on 12/18/18. Either there are a whole lot more libruls than you think in America or... Read it and weep, Darth:

• 73% think global warming in happening.
• 51% are very sure it is happening.
• 62% understand most of it is human caused.
More than half 57% understand most scientists agree its happening.
• 69% are interested in global warming.

Thoroughly disgusting troll Flagged. Don’t waste time responding to their worthlessly flawed posts.

Darthamerica | March 21, 2019

@dm you lost the debate with “Yale University”... I already said the thread title applies only to the far left. The rest of the country isn’t worried and isn’t eager for action. When you come out of the bubble and look at a more representative group you will understand better that many Americans think of AGW as a joke. Those who don’t think it’s a joke still aren’t at the point of killing the economy over it. Stop drinking your own Kool Aid and realize America just elected a President and Congress that guarantees ZERO chance of climate change action for at least the next 6 years. Any action after that would require a new Gov and then for whatever ridiculous legislation to survive a stacked SCOTUS. Other than on these forums no one cares...

SCCRENDO | March 21, 2019

@Darth. The popularity or lack of popularity of a topic does not define whether it is important or not. That many people do not care about climate change is actually a sad reflection.. I would suggest that the lack of concern suggests either ignorance or apathy. But I guess we should have realized that. Our country was stupid enough to elect Donald Trump. While he did not get the majority of the voters there were sufficient people in key states to get him enough electoral votes. Your opinion on Ivy league schools is also astounding. Most would take an opinion from Yale University over say Trump University or say weather school at Texas A&M that gave us our weathermoron MItch.

Darthamerica | March 21, 2019

You guys just can't get over 2016 can you? Presidents are not elected by popular vote dude... Congress is and you can't get the Senate for the same reasons. Left wing outrage only works on MSNBC. Otherwise Americans don't really give a damn about AGW. If they did you'd see a different government. Case and point California. I will agree that enough of California believes in AGW based on the people they've elected. It's quite different nationally which is why the OPs post is just idealistic AGW propaganda.
