    It’s not the money.. it’s what folk will not give up that’s the problem. Bottled water is an American (and the rest of the developed world) right.

    We didn’t start the fire. We just made it burn brighter. Have a wonderful day my friends.

    Giving up bottled water won’t make a real difference. What would make a difference is giving up most use of fossil fuels in favor of renewables. We have a huge fusion furnace dumping loads of free energy on the planet every day. I haven’t had to give up anything while using the energy provided by my solar panels.

    “But it’s too expensive to do what needs doing to reverse climate change”… except the cost of not doing it is even greater.

    Again, it all comes down to Ya Gotta Wanna!

    You can spend time blaming “The Left”, or “Liberals”, or “It’s just Weather” … or you can actually do something about it – as in pay your taxes and ensure it’s spent in ways that will do the most good.

    For example, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) said he couldn’t find anything to like or to admit he likes about the Inflation Reduction Act which would cut health care costs, decrease the deficit, boost energy production and help combat climate change. His exact words were “Nothing appeals to me.”

    No, there is no governance allowed, of any kind, by the Maga Party bosses when there’s a Democrat in the White House. Even if people die as a result.

    The Oceans are rising, Plymouth rock is underwater, the great lighthouses of our country have been swept away, oh wait no they haven’t been. Since the end of the mini-ice age, a natural occurrence, between 1890 to 1920 depending on who you listen to, the waters of our oceans have risen six to eight inches. And if this melting is due to the end of the mini ace age, then what we are doing matters very little.

    The “ops” troll posted another of his juvenile one-liners, this time in a reply supporting one of his fellow trolls, above, with “Junk science from the Democrat party.”

    Ipse dixit is a Latin phrase that translates to “he said it himself.” Ipse dixit means a person’s own assertion is true without relying on any authority or proof. It usually implies an assertion of authority, as in a statement is true based on the speaker’s authority and nothing else.

    Ops and others like him, and many Republican candidates and elected officials, all share that same Maga Pox strain – that their belief is sufficient to override facts and empirical truth.

    For example, Maga candidate Kari Lake, running for Governor in AZ, has already asserted (before the primary election) that there was “voter fraud”. She has literally said if she suspects it, then there was “Voter Fraud” whether or not it can be proved.

    This is what they learned from the Maga master – make up the lie and keep repeating it, and the idiots (those afflicted with Terminal Maga Pox) will believe you.

    Read, “The Ministry of the Future” by Kim Stanly Robinson. A great sci-fi read that shows how big the problem really is, and that we’ll need government reform, economic, cultural and technological change to solve this booger.

    Go to UTube, pull up BILL MAHER. Pick out his July 29th program, go up to about the last ten minutes, to his “New Rules” Op-Ed part. It is about earth reaching the 8 BILLION mark. No matter if you are a communist or a nazi, you should view it.

    Does anyone know why the ice age ended? Was it ended by humans (no, humans weren’t around) or were there environmental conditions that did it? What were those conditions and are any of them present today? What is the precise correct temperature that Earth should be and what tests have been done to prove it?

    The silliness of “this catastrophe hasn’t happened” (yet) usually involve some crazy stuff that no one except a RWNJ has said. Jack keeps whining about a VA reeducation" program being ended – looks like he needs it. But not at the cost of doing nothing for veterans affected by burn pits.

    Considering the wealth of information available from experts about climate change, the “questions” from ari above don’t belong in a comments section, should be doing their own research. Besides, I’m certain there have been several attempts to educate ari without success.

    Even if all of the scientific evidence is wrong or even exaggerated, converting from fossil fuels into renewable energy and conserving resources will have fantastic results. Less pollution, less reliance on dealing with rogue countries, creating well-paying long-lasting jobs in a new industry just to name a few benefits. There is an increased interest in researching new batteries to replace lithium and rare earth minerals.

    So what? The money cost is today, the other is on our children and grandchildren. Thus, still no action, just ‘goals’, and ‘studies’.

    matt davies, so if you think you’re smarter than the average person, consider – 50 years ago the car owners manual told you how to adjust the valves on your engine. Today, the owners manual warns you not to drink the contents of the battery. Tell me matt, what does battery acid taste like?
