    • I'm dead, and sending this to every member of my family.garbage
    • uh huh hayzilla. if you can show evidence she isn't a pawn and has real understanding of the issue ill accept the clown roledeathboy
    • but if not you guys can where the clown pants. what specific dataset is she being emo about? Lets see if she is overreacting even in context of her choicedeathboy
    • dataset. if there even is one... haha as is such a joke car wreck.deathboy
    • Are you really that much a dick? If she can encourage governments to be more sustainable and be considerate of our futures then she's already a successIanbolton
    • deathboy is the latest utter trollHayzilla
    • "If she can encourage governments..."
      I pissed myself.

    • dont be a complete twat hazilla. provide something like u even have a base. ill entertain any attempt.deathboy
    • ian you are fool in thinking a kids emotional rant has any effect on our futures. poltically maybe (douches will be douches) but no way environmentally.deathboy
    • ring me when you find the politician that has omnipotent and physical controls of environments (and as such benefitting the masses)deathboy
    • haha clowns. again ill wear the pants if any real argument is made and dataset is shown as real truth.deathboy
    • I don't even think it's an argument or a differing of opinion. You just don't get it. Or maybe you're just trolling us all, therefore hahahahahahahahahaha...Ianbolton
    • It's on you to show she's some sort of con artist, not anyone else to prove she isn't.i_monk
    • I picture deathboy's screeds being typed out on a iPhone with a cracked screen, sent from the parking lot of whatever grocery store he's stealing wifi from.garbage
    • the only things that will have real affects on our futures will likely begin with emotional rants, as the power of human motivation is nearly limitlessmonospaced
    • to act like things just happen without anyone caring is beyond moronicmonospaced
    • its on me for proof of fake arguments. one can say whatever and need no proof... only an accuser calling BS.deathboy
    • very interesting perception of reality. my evidence is in history. of ppl predicting futures with models that never came true.deathboy
    • if you are looking for a profit(sp?) go for it. I see no logical reason to predict an apocalypse in 12 or 30 years.deathboy
    • or at any time. HOWEVER i do expect coastal water to rise with natural climate change effecting humansdeathboy
    • climate change will effect all we know as it has pre industrial. And i am highly skeptical of methods used to measure human climate change.deathboy
    • hell you guys are so sure of the methods used please state your go to method as the most accurate?deathboy
    • :)deathboy
    • Who's paying you to say this? You on the Koch payroll?i_monk
    • ^implying that anybody would pay for this. Also the summary of this latest rant is:

      "it's :)"

      He's trying to tell you he's having a good day.
      garbage
    • common sense with basic intelligence I_monk. did you notice you didn't display any evidence i was wrong? Please tell me if if and what reasons you thinkdeathboy
    • today's coastlines can exist as today for the long run? by the way koch funded a ton of public broadcast television which is miles aheads of networks and doesntdeathboy
    • pander to ad revenue or shareholder value. I personally like nova. better than the fox network rip off with that black bill nye dude for enterntainment.deathboy
    • however i do commend him for tryin to speak about gun violence on relative terms.probably fucked his career updeathboy

    “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you come to us young people for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words, and yet, I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing, we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you! For more than 30 years the science has been crystal clear. how dare you continue to look away and come here and say that you’re doing enough when the politics and solutions need are still nowhere in sight. You say you hear us and understand the urgency. But no matter how sad and angry I am I do not want to believe that because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil, and that I refuse to believe.

    “There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today, because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us. Young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. If you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. Change is coming whether you like it or not.”

    • haha sounds like trump warning of rapists hopefully parents know how to monetize it or hired someone.deathboy

    Former USDA Scientist Says He'll Make A Bigger Impact On Climate Change Research Outside Of The Government

    A scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently resigned after more than two decades, citing attempts by the Trump administration to suppress his climate change related research on how rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are altering the nutritional content in rice.

    The Trump Administration Has a Multi-Pronged Strategy to Make the Planet Uninhabitable

    If you ever wondered what it would look like for someone to go Jim Jones on the human race, look no further than the United States of America in the Year of Our Lord 2019. People who study this kind of thing believe we have to cut our heat-trapping emissions in half by 2030 to stand a chance of staving off the worst effects of the climate crisis, and avoid the feedback loops that will send the issue beyond our control. Believe it or not, however, the administration of Donald Trump, American president, is not proving particularly helpful in this regard.

    While the Fox News Grandpa has periodic spasms of insanity on Twitter and the White House lawn, the termites of the state his regime has ushered into power are hard at work dismantling regulations aimed at curbing our climate emissions. The latest example arrived Thursday courtesy of the New York Times.

    • i have to really question those people studying that kind of thing. Almost sounds like they believe we can control climate...deathboy
    • also wonder why 2030 and not 2031... they smell like whiteys in fancy clothes preaching a new age salvation. especially considering past performance ofdeathboy

    • Hell, why bother with anything logical at all, for anything. The clear disdain for the future, let alone a fellow human, is insane. I guess it's easy, though.formed
    • Easy and lazy to just shake fingers at everyone else, at the world, shouting "fake, FAKE! I hate you!! ".formed
    • An easier fix would be to convince China to cut their emission by a quarter, as they are 25% of global co2. USA only 12%monNom
    • And incidentally, this whole trade war Trump is stirring up might actually achieve that if manufacturing decreases.monNom

    • haha inteliboy im only pointing out what is obvious.if you want i'll wear the smarty pants but they're a bit snug in the crotchdeathboy
    • That's hliarious. If you wore the "smarty pants" you'd go around with your fly down all day, or possibly leave the house with them around your ankles.garbage
    • why would i do that garbage? smart enough to wear the elusive smarty pants, what makes you think id wear them in such fashion. sounds like youre sayingdeathboy
    • if i had such a thing i wouldn't know how to wear them... as the insult... but thats like calling a skinny person fat. insults work better if have a lil truthdeathboy

    It's looking worst day by day.

    Experts warn that the massive fires have the ability to severely inhibit the planet’s overall health given that the Amazon spans eight countries — or about 40% of South America — and produces more than 20% of the planet’s oxygen.

    I wonder if governments pushing unilateral environmental destruction with global impact might become the focus of sanctions or even UN mandated military action in future?

    • the darker me wonders whether 12 Monkeys like activities might start becoming plausible - biological or chemical attacks on large population centres.Nairn
    • I can definitely envisage some nutter thinking it a better trade to kill a few Bn poor foreigners rather than risk consumer economies back home.Nairn
    • what gov are pushing for gov unilateral env destruction? Your hypothesis is better wether fearful rich and powerful see climate change as destructiondeathboy
    • and as such set force plans that ruins life for all not fully realizing there power relies on economic activity that keeps people peacefuldeathboy
    • that their fear and policies that make people more poor will give rise to more tin pot dictators. That will take and give and set in motion populist rules wheredeathboy
    • nothing survives and its a slow death as history has shown. and sometimes i wonder if its just man's winter. stuff dies in brutal conditions but grows again.deathboy
    • however looking at history I still think the US had the best shot and it was simply because it was new land (indians not really developed) So much harderdeathboy
    • to redevelop, but maybe a great extinction event would make it easier.deathboy
    • I'll skip Deathboy's comments. But Nairn, I reckon governments will slowly see the benefits of being more sustainable, but then there are those countries..Ianbolton
    • who can't keep up financially. Maybe they still burn coal? Do the richer countries help them out or do they get aggressive? Worrying possibilitiesIanbolton
    • The dystopian 12 Monkey's scenario is pretty scary but apparently biological and chemical attacks are supposed to be illegal!! haha (novichock, cough!)Ianbolton

    • Ah, I see your point. I dont see why we don’t speed up the destruction of the rainforests anyway. Get it over with and build a car parkIanbolton
    • ha skip it. you are fool enough to think its about climate change (a thing that can never be stopped) and fail to see its about political and economic powerdeathboy
    • in order to shape an ideal world largely based outside reality. You can subsidize one thing only as long as you have money, but that money will run drydeathboy
    • and all that money will be a cost on everyone and the benefit of no one, except the cronies and political elite who supported it.deathboy
    • If i want to pay less for coal than solar why cant I? Or vice versa? Why can't i choose what best works for me outside subsidies and taxes that try to shape mydeathboy

    Five visuals to sum up Greenland's heatwave

    The sweltering heatwave that hit Europe last month has moved north to Greenland and the planet's second-largest ice sheet.

    It's triggered an extreme melt event that could rival the record 2012 season and fuelled a rare wildfire close to Qeqqata, burning since early July.

    Satellite imagery expert Pierre Markuse has today published a photo that encapsulates what is happening in Greenland.

    • how does one accurately measure man-made vs natural climate change fadein? there is no lab to reproduce anythingdeathboy
    • we just have a ton of data which is quite limited on timescale. And much could be noise. fact is their is no real science to measurementdeathboy
    • with any degree of accuracy. because its based on extrapolation of existing limited data point sets that have all been pretty wrong.deathboy
    • If you can tell me the global measurement formula that separates man-made vs natural and it make sense i'll jump on boarddeathboy
    • oh and neolibarlism and liberalism all the same roses under different names. Just word invention. Same with socialism and social democraciesdeathboy
