    Have you heard the joke "it's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop?" Well, the same thing relates here. You look at natural cycles and they're long and slow and gives life time to evolve and adapt. The huge spike of temperature changes we're causing is going to be that sudden stop at the end that kills lots of life on earth.

    Your "FACT" seems to fly in the face of all the evidence we have. Evidence gathered and analyzed by those who understand what it means.

    FRAUDULENT evidence, cherry-picked and manipulated to show what they are trying to "prove", with efforts to silence anyone who points out the gaping holes in their methodology.

    But hey, you're free to believe the lies.

    Nothing. Nothing at all. His energy usage is no more than the nearest cave dweller. He's above-board on his environmental choices and he's not at all a hypocrite in his choices of travel.

    Just like a Catholic priest he is beyond reproach in his every day life. In fact they all are, all these rich and famous climate warmistas are doing their level-headed best to Do As They Say.

    It's totally on us the reduce our profligate usage of all forms of energy so the messengers of climate changing can be allowed to spread their message far and wide as they see fit. They're saving the world the best way they can, airline mile by airline mile. Praise be to Leo DiCaprio, doing God's work jetsetting around the world spreading the message. Oh and don't forget the backbreaking labor our elites are doing in Davos every year trying to save us from this peril.

    Yep, it's we who need to change our lifestyles.

    Stop with your partisan BS. There are many more scientists who don't rely on federal grants for a living who don't agree with the general consensus of anthropogenic global warming than do agree with it. Those who don't agree are quiet because anybody who dare speak out against the narrative are attacked relentlessly by the media and their peers who ARE paid by federal grants.

    There is about a 5 mile island near the Azores that bas been breaking apart from expansion in the heat and cold seasons for a very long time. When enough of it has broken loose, a very large percentage of it will fall into the ocean. Literally a mountain falling into the sea.

    Once that happens there will or should be about 8 hours notice, enough time to get west over the mountain ranges before the Tsunami arrives. From what experts have explained it has the potential to cover anything lower than 1200 feet above MSL. My old house is at 820 feet elevation and to consider there will be another 400 feet of ocean above that it's quite something. From Maine all the way to Miami and then some.

    The first true elevation above 1200 will be west of Frederick. Which is around 170 miles inland from the sea.

    It will be a incalculatable loss to the Nation. You got about between 40 to 90 million along the eastern seaboard. They sit in the Shenandoah Valley which itself is at 300 foot elevation there. So essentially the entire ocean will try to drain.

    Trucks maxed out 45? Are you higher than a kite or something? You do realize that vehicles going that much slower than all the other vehicles around them are more of a risk to everybody Right? Grab your big ears and pull your stinking head out of your ###, we've had storms for centuries, in fact we don't have the blizzards we used to, proving you wrong and completely full of ####.
