When we’re faced with threats of inundation, our reaction has traditionally been to build walls. Sea-level rises, storms and floods have been held back with solid barriers, seawalls and dykes. We have used walls to keep out people, too: the fact that this has failed throughout the ages has not stopped its recent revival in the United States. The climate crisis threatens global sea-level rises of well over half a metre if we fail to act, while tidal storm surges will reach many times that height. Fiercer and more frequent hurricanes will batter us, and millions of people who live in areas where crops have failed

Back around 12,000 BC somewhere in England Gronk said to Hwulda "Oook, gonga, duhduh wonk swishee whodah" which, translated, means "Babe, I think it's getting warmer, what did we do? The land bridge to Europe is gone. Neanderthals built too many fires."

Panic early and often and throw LOTS and LOTS of money at a problem that doesn't exist. The author does a good job of listing the litany of Alarmist claims but fails to note that most of them are NOT happening as scheduled. For example, seas are NOT rising any faster than they have over centuries of measurements. Storms are NOT getting more severe or more frequent. Without conformational results, Alarmist theories are junk and not one penny should be spent on panic solutions.

"We’ve got to throw everything we've got at the climate crisis." Everything that increases government overlordship of the masses, that is. None of these Leftists wants to provide safe, reliable, peak load tolerant nuclear generation of electricity. They want to throw money instead at balky, unreliable, non-peak load tolerant wind and solar generation. This approach will guarantee energy shortages like those that plague third-world countries and require a heavy-handed government control over YOUR energy usage.

Yes Fiona, the sky is falling. And people like you are a menace especially to the ill informed and uneducated. Your scientists have lied and covered up their false studies. The UN can’t be trusted. Keep burning inefficient wood over there. We’re selling, chopping, chipping, shipping, all the trees you guys are burning. And we’re leaving a large carbon footprint in the process. And you think that is carbon neutral. What idiots. And, stay the hell off our wall. Walls work.

Exactly, #16. Even 2 atomic bombs being dropped in 1945 and all of the bomb testing that went on in the 50’s didn’t do squat to the climate. Nor did Saddam’s burning oil fields which the left said would take years to stop and that the smoke would cover the earth. In the 1980’s we were told that in 10 years the oceans would be dead. In 1991, they told us that, by 2000, all of the coastal cities would be under water. Not only can they not name one thing that humans have done, every single one of their predictions has failed to come to pass. Best solution - laugh at them and walk away.

Honey, get the boat ready. Don't bother to pack warm clothes, it's getting really hot. We could be the first couple to reach the top of Mount Everest without having to climb it.

I do wonder how these people think that TODAY, now, this point in time, is the precise climate that must be maintained. Yet, there is ample evidence that seas have been higher, and lower. I seem to recall the Great Barrier Reef off Australia was previously land that's simply been overtaken by a rising sea level? The sad part, they shout about needing to do something, but they don't even know if it's needed, or that what they claim will actually happen. And, I would think if China thought this was urgent, they would be looking to protect their vast Coastal areas.

crisis, what crisis are they talking about. Everything I read by people who are actual weather/climate scientists indicates that the temperatures have been level for nearly a decade. Every time they make a big deal about ice missing at point a somebody finds a whole new bunch of ice at point b. Every doomsday scenario over the last 100 years has proven to be a bust, from we were going to be either starving to death by the millions, or eating ourselves, which of course has been recently revived, to death by global cooling, death by global warming, now its death by climate change, which for nearly a couple of thousand years or more has been known as the WEATHER. Chicken little's running around screaming the sky is falling the sky is falling are nothing new.

Throw everything at the climate crisis, beginning with the truth that the 'climate crisis' is largely a fraud, and what isn't fraudulent has little or nothing to do with human activities.

Democrat presidential candidate Marianne Williamson came out against using nuclear energy, which experts say should be used to combat climate change, on Thursday during a climate change town hall on MSNBC, urging students to not use "hard data" when thinking about nuclear energy. Williamson made the remarks while answering a question from a college student who wanted to know why she thought that nuclear energy was problematic. "Well I know Germany had said at one point 'we're just going no nuclear,' but then when they said no nuclear there was a problem because they had a hard time keeping up with the other standards they agreed to,"

(snip) There’s been no swift, public action that we know of on eight criminal referrals that two House Intelligence Committee Republicans, Reps. Devin Nunes of California and John Ratcliffe of Texas, sent to the Department of Justice more than five months ago. There’s no word of any action more than eight months after Sens.

Of all the planks of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign platform, none united conservatives, libertarians, Republicans, and independents like his pledge to nominate judges who respect the Constitution as it was originally interpreted. Of all the successes President Trump has achieved during his 32 months in office, none infuriates liberals and socialists quite the same way as his demonstrated ability to follow through on that promise — big league. Final confirmation votes for six more federal district court judges are expected as the Senate settles back into business, which will bring the total to 152 total judicial confirmations since Donald Trump took office

As my colleague streiff shared earlier today, we didn’t have to wait long to find out who did it. If you had Iran as the aggressor, congrats, although that’s not a difficult guess these days. It appears cruise missiles, possibly fired by Iranian backed militias in Iraq, were used in the attack.

Most of the people speculating on the origin of these craft seemed to generally be from the military or the “ufo community.” Where have the more mainstream scientists been in this debate? At least one of them stepped up to the plate recently to weigh in with a surprising take.

The black and Hispanic unemployment rates both just hit another all-time low, proving that the Trump administration's focus on providing equal opportunity to all Americans is doing more to empower racial minorities than any of the divisive approaches the Democrats have ever tried. President Trump has advanced an economic agenda that puts American workers at the center of the government’s decision-making. Policies such as cutting taxes for middle-income workers, fighting back against foreign trade cheaters, and stopping the flow of illegal immigration empower all workers and are improving the lives of working Americans and their families.
