Paris - The United States and Europe bear more than half the cost of repairing the damage already wrought by climate change, a coalition of environmental groups said Monday. Based on their historic greenhouse gas emissions, the US and EU should be held jointly responsible for 54 percent of funding owed to developing nations already dealing with extreme flooding, droughts and megastorms rendered more frequent and intense by global warming, the groups said.

Could their agenda be more transparent? Every time there's a flood in Bangladesh or drought in Somalia we're supposed to throw money at them.

PDJT took us out of Obama's unratified Paris Climate Treaty because its main feature is to pick Uncle Sam's pocket to give the rest of the world "walking around" money. (It also would have forced U.S. courts to ignore our Constitution and enforce foreign laws on our citizens.) As long as PDJT remains President, these globalist parasites can go pound sand.

So - - "climate change" simultaneously causes both floods and droughts. Anyone see a logical contradiction here? Ooops! Silly me - - trying to apply logic in a "scientific" debate. "Climate science" don't need no steenking logic!

"They" say that Venice is experiencing the worst flooding in 53 years. That must mean that it flooded 53 years ago and probably years before that. Don't blame it on us for building a city in a flood zone on a canal. Idiots!

"Man Made" emissions aren't, and never were, driving the changes in climate that have occurred ever since there was such a thing as 'climate'. The false claims made by global leftards are a scam. Only believable by the ignorant and the stupid, which pretty much describes the leftard's useful idiots.

A few thoughts... Man does not have enough horsepower to alter climate. Only Simon Bar Sinister could and he hasn't been heard from since they cancelled Underdog. Poor countries pollute more for simple reasons. Poor people have to look after themselves first. As they get more wealth, they can think about their neighbors. With more wealth they can start to look at their surroundings Commie countries polluted as most were desperately poor and pollution was a by-product of rapid industrialization. If you want to make poor countries stop polluting/more wealth, embrace capitalism Plastic pollution is caused by Asia, not America. Nothing we do here with all the feel good histrionics (straws, bags...etc) will do nothing to alleviate the problem. Dont bother doing it.

More carbon dioxide in the air will let green plants grow faster and stronger, and they will feed us, clothe us, and provide more oxygen for us to breathe. I WANT more CO2 in the air. Flood, droughts, hurricanes and all that is WEATHER. It has always happened, WILL always happen, has absolutely nothing to do with mankind's actions.

The earth's climate has been in continual flux since the birth of the planet and her atmosphere. When, exactly, was the that ever ideal? Ideal for what or for whom? Somebody should have hit the 'pause' button at that point to stop the climate from changing any more. The whole thing is a scam from the get-go. The climate changed before life appeared here, and it will change after everybody's gone. We are the proverbial ant riding on the wheel's rim, screaming about how fast it's making the wheel roll.

At the same time, the White House said it was preparing for a trial in the Senate. If the House of Representatives votes for impeachment, the matter would move to the upper chamber with Trump’s removal from office on the line. But that prospect seemed distant as not a single elected Republican stepped forward to criticize

Five right-tilting upstarts — Whatfinger News, Liberty Daily, Rantingly, NewsAmmo and Gab Trends — increased their average monthly traffic and engagement, as measured by average visit duration and average pages per visit, from September-October 2018 to 2019, according to SimilarWeb, which shared its data with The Washington Times. At the same time, the marketing-intelligence company found traffic to the Drudge Report during that period declined by 15%. From July to October, Drudge dropped from 96 million total visits to 77 million, prompting recent headlines such as True Pundit’s “Drudge Bleeds Out as Conservatives Flee.”

The new records show that more than 81% of people who have been stopped for eating and drinking on Bart since 2014 were people of color, and that the vast majority of them were black.

Hunter Biden was suspected of smoking crack inside a strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits — at the same time he held a seat on the board of a controversial Ukrainian natural gas company, The Post has learned. The incident, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club in Washington, DC, late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Biden, 49, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction that included a crack binge in 2016.
