Are you really that sensitive to an anonymous internet fantasy?
I had the impression you had a stronger personality than that.
I see someone who is well spoken, hard headed, ready willing and able to speak her thoughts and defend her ground. That is the kind of intellect I appreciate.
The fact that you’re a religious nut job and an anti-science moron is in stark contrast to an intellect that *should* know better but somehow doesn’t. And we both know my own views don't set well with you. I just have better insults.
The contrast is interesting to me and somehow, strangely, attractive.
But, Love, please. Don’t feel so deeply that the depths of despair confine you to a teary abyss.
Don't let my often misguided sense of humor and affection shake your spirit. That was not my intent.
Embrace the relationship across this medium, but remember it is just a fantasy. Just stupid humans doing stupid human things and trying to enjoy what's left of life.
I am not influenced or concerned by the musings of a religious nutcase who thinks the founding fathers were demons in league with jesuits and masons. And I have no patience with celebrities pushing scenarios not supported by the science.
As far as my "dangerous line" goes the science is clear. The global temperatures are rising to unprecedented levels not seen by our species ever, our oceans are heating up even more then the atmosphere with sea levels that will flood all the world's coastal areas by the end of the century and even worse beyond, weather systems are being disrupted with ever more powerful storms, droughts and floods, our ecosystems are in danger of widespread collapse in the next 200 years with extinction level die offs over the next 500 years putting our own viability on this planet in jeopardy in this next few millennia.
No one can show where this science is in error. The vast majority of climate science specialists the world over helped define and form this consensus. The opposition is without any scientific foundation but consists entirely of political rhetoric and industrial deception.
The "dangerous line" is the one we have drawn on our own continued existence.
The US is supposed to get railroaded into giving up our sovereignty and freedom to third world tyrants ...
What are you talking about?
I see no proposals to give up any sovereignty and freedom to anyone.
I do see proposals that the USofA participate in discussions at world meetings which we no longer do. Is that giving up sovereignty in the alt-right mind?
We are a world leader, or at least used to be, and as one of the biggest polluters, we could/should set an example for the rest of the world in setting policies and standards. Is that giving up freedom in the alt-right mind?
Is cooperating with the rest of this planet, indeed being a major force in setting the world agenda, leading the charge to salvation ... is that somehow seen as surrender?
You listen to too many Nazis.
I assume you are characterizing Chris Pinto in your opening sentence? Got it off some wacko website I suppose.
Yeah. The wacko site was his own video "The Hidden Faith of Our Founding Fathers." He's a twisted hate-filled religious nutjob. Apparently just the kind of preacher you like.
It's already too late for a lot of the disaster to come. It's already front-loaded into our ecosystem and there is nothing ... nothing ... we can do to stop it. The sea level flooding, badder storms, drought, famine and dislocations are all going to take place in the next 100++ years and there is nothing ... nothing ... we can do to stop it.
What we are talking about is trying to keep the deep future extinctions of our ecosystems and ourselves from happening and to do that we have to act now ... today ... we don't have time any more. We have squandered what time we had playing politics with our existence and we are about to lose.
Sure, I guess we should talk to the rest of the world about it, but if you haven't heard how their solution is the US shutting down all of OUR industry I don't know why not.
Who's solution? Who is the "their" in "their solution"? Specifics required.
Jar had a nice list of things we could be/could have been doing in this country on our own. Nothing entailed closing up the nation for the duration. But you alt-reich fanatics won't listen to anything, let alone reason or compromise or survival.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is right. She puts it more bluntly so people pay attention but, yes, if we don't curb CO2 emissions substantially over the next couple decades, the science in the IPCC report shows that we may lock in the extinction disasters I've been talking about.
The disasters you say are far off "so there's time to try to do something."
M'Lady. My Love. You're a fool. There is no more time. Even though the effects are 500 years out in the future the *causes* of those disasters is happening NOW. We are loading the system NOW from our end with the disasters that will come hard upon our survival centuries from now.
What part of "what we do now will kill us then" can you not comprehend!

Wrightstone does include some peer-reviewed references, but they are either just references to raw data that is non-controversial, to outdated reports, or to papers that he misrepresents. On the flip side, by including these references, he is giving the appearance of legitimacy to his readers. When there are references supporting his extreme claims, they are to other non-scientific, non-peer-reviewed publications. Many of his assertions are the same we hear repeatedly from other climate deniers.
