  • uwish: my mental health is strained listening to idiot zealots spout off about the non existent impending doom!
  • PluggyRug: Nolte: Climate ‘Experts’ Are 0-41 with Their Doomsday Predictions

    For more than 50 years Climate Alarmists in the scientific community and environmental movement have not gotten even one prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong.

    In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened.

    And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true.

    Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with their predictions, but those of us who are skeptical of “expert” prediction number 42, the one that says that if we don’t immediately convert to socialism and allow Alexandria Ocasio-Crazy to control and organize our lives, the planet will become uninhabitable.

    Why would any sane person listen to someone with a 0-41 record?

    Why would we completely restructure our economy and sacrifice our personal freedom for “experts” who are 0-41, who have never once gotten it right?

    If you had an investment counselor who steered you wrong 41times, would you hang in there for number 42?

    Of course not. You’d fire him after failed prediction two or three.

    And if that’s not crazy enough, the latest ploy is to trot out a 16-year-old girl to spread prediction number 42, because it is so much more credible that way.

    Sometimes you just have to sit back and laugh.

    Anyway, I want you to have the data, so go ahead and print this out in advance of Thanksgiving dinner with your obnoxious Millennial nephew.

  • peck420: My mental health is severely strained by the fact that this is my potential leader options:

    Trudeau
    Scheer
    Singh
    May
    Bernier

    Honestly....so hard to look at this and feel that any option can be regarded as a "win" for the country.

    I was just watching the news today and saw young Greta Thunberg railing against the worlds gov'ts for not doing what "she" wants. But what I found extremely disconcerting is the fact that she was reading from a written script and there were 4 adults sitting to her right watching her like hawks on a mouse and actually nodding in agreement before she even spoke her talking points.

    So the question becomes, why are people falling for this utter and unmitigated bullshit. This child is nothing more than the propaganda face of the environmental movement and she is being used and abused just like a 12 year old hooker in New Orleans brothel.

    But then again when you're dealing with the end justifies the means crowd I suppose this is perfectly acceptable behaviour.
