    You gotta love how the politicians plan on fighting global climate change...... With taxes. Just throw money up in the air and it'll bring down temperatures. HA HA HA HA HA HA

    More than that. I have actually collected seashells in the mountains above Palm Springs CA., approx. 10,000 feet above sea level at the peaks. Mountains have risen and fallen.

    Well, 400 million years ago, the oceans covered about 90% of the surface.
    The left says the right is full of racists and bigots and have no tolerance. Nobody from the right organizes interference with gay pride parades, or other leftist events. The left however always has a group interfering with events organized by the right. Who are the tolerant ones I ask? Most certainly not the left.

    With respect, we are living on the planet. The planet is more or less just "the third rock from the Sun".

    The whole Earthly system, existing as a part of the Solar System and all the rest, is an amazing thing that does what it does. Like a steam roller moving forward. No emotion. Just awesome power.

    There is no emotional response coming from Earth. There are responses in a cause-effect sense, but no emotions.

    Regarding the number of humans on the planet, the earth can obviously support a whole bunch of us. The population density of China is about five times that of the US. The US about 10 times that of Canada.

    I'm not sure that this is true, but I think I've heard that the mass of living creatures below the surface of the land and water is greater than the mass of those of us living above.

    All of that said, we seem to have a knack for changing our immediate environment. The land in the Boston-Washington corridor is pretty much a trash heap vs what the pilgrims found.

    If we all died today, after about 100 years, it would look more like the world the Mohicans left us than the world the modern commuter navigates. For better or worse, we are fleas on a dog.

    After the next ice age, what we built in New York City will be unnoticeable.

    Agreed!

    I have some Liberal Arts Degrees that I paid for myself. I enjoyed the educational experience, but it is an ROI waste of money.

    The current suggestions by the Democrat-Socialists to provide both free tuition and living stipends is insanity. Applying these suggestions to the 20 year old me, I'd still be in college and I just retired!

    Is there anybody who is the least bit sane supporting these jack wagons?

    If there's a leak in my pipes or if I need something designed, I need an engineer type. Poetry is nice, but it don't dry the carpet.

    The official is almost certainly correct. The global warming trend was not reversed by the year 2000; consequently entire nations very likely will be wiped off the face of the Earth. The Maldives, for example, are now doomed unless some way can be found to extract large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.
    I feel so bad for the folks native to the Maldives.

    Can you imagine the stupidity of folks who know that the sea level is going to rise due to climate change and are swindled into buying a house like this one?

    I like your metaphor, fleas on a dog. Very apt.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well, we always knew that Obama was just a puppet for someone else. The question is, who is in control, of his strings?

    I can't take credit for that. Crocodile Dundee said it to a city dweller that was conversing with him in, I think, the first Crocodile Dundee movie.

    I think humans are less than fleas on a dog, we're more like a patch of bacteria on a dog.
