    We are told constantly of the "settled" science of global warming and bombarded with news coverage on that and world terrorism.

    Terrorism is real. The threat that it poses is real and direct.

    Global warming is a wrong-wing superstition/fairy tale. The only real threat that it poses is indirect, as a consequence of the destructive wrong-wing policies that may be inflicted on us under the guise of fighting this ersatz threat.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Global warming is a far larger threat than global terrorism. A significant increase in global temperature will kill far more people worldwide than terrorist activity would.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Yet another thread that ignores anyone who is not left or right leaning.



    You do realize, that there are tens of millions of Americans who are not partisan?


    But I will answer it anyway.

    How can terrorism be a threat to humanity?

    Unless everyone becomes a terrorist and then kills themselves after they strike.

    Global warming could, theoretically, wipe out humanity.

    Terrorism (realistically) cannot.

    Well assuming that Global Warming is 100% correct, the answer would clearly be Global Warming. It would affect EVERYONE where Terrorism simply wouldn't on the scale of Global Warming.

    It says 'leaning'. You going to tell me you're perfectly in the middle?

    If terrorist get hold of a pandemic-causing bug or nuclear weapons, they could well destroy what we call our modern world.

    Actually, prety much EVERYONE agrees that climate change is happening. The main disagreement is why it is happening and if man is resposible or not.

    Terrorism, I'll leave it at that, although in a more broad sense I can think of a certain religion that is the true plague of humanity that must be eradicated.
