"Make Our Planet Great Again"

It's called putting your money where your mouth is.

Quote:
PARIS (AP) - Several U.S.-based climate scientists are about to hit the jackpot, as French President Emmanuel Macron prepares to award them multi-year, all-expenses-paid grants to relocate to France.

The "Make Our Planet Great Again" grants are part of Macron's efforts to counter U.S. President Donald Trump on the climate change front. Macron announced a competition for the projects in June, hours after Trump declared he would withdraw the U.S. from the global accord reached in Paris in 2015 to reduce climate-damaging emissions.

Yawn.

The paris accord rears its ugly head again. No thanks.

Is your intent here to have the discussion on if that pile of garbage was good for the American people again?

Or just parade how proud you are of PM zoolander for towing the UN globalist agenda like a good little Canadian?
Thanks from guy39, caconservative and Kelvin

Interesting that it doesn't take long to rattle the bugs out of the woodwork.

Political responses are understandable. But the merits are determined by science, not politics.
And while the consensus didn't arrive fully clothed, the decades that have ensued do seem to have rounded up most of the strays.

So much so that in cases where a dyed in the wool balker / troglodyte like Trump gets in the game, even those down to mayoral level, and even individual citizen level have round ways to circumvent ignorant global climate deniers.

Commercial power providers are investing $Billions in renewable energy.
I visited a commercial power facility on the Connecticut river where water is pumped up to a hill-top reservoir in early morning / off-peak hours, so that the reservoir can then be used as a conventional hydro-electric power source during demand (consumption) peaks.

Turns out that's not all that uncommon.

It is ironic that it's quite likely the welfare of the deniers may be preserved by those condemned for their principled position.

It's hardly the only example.
The anti-choicers benefit from the very decriminalized OB/GYN procedures they've tried to recriminalize; when all of a sudden THEY are in an emergency.

Compounding the irony, Republicans would have us believe THEY are the champions of principle, bravely battling back the ignorant hordes, for the righteous protection of - whatever.

The reality is it's these ostensible brave champions of principle that are themselves the beneficiaries of the true champions of political conservatism: the Democrats that continue to defend smaller, less intrusive, less authoritarian government.

Nope. The actual "hoax mongers" speak in poorly constructed fourth grade English on Breitfart and WhatsUpMyAss.

Nope Hoaxmongers are communits, and Communist/socialist have to make fake victims to expand their power.

You know how Hitler blamed the banking crisis on the Jews.

Your full-on, anti-science, head-up-ass denial of the scientifically confirmed reality of human caused global warming and its disastrous climate changes is as bug-fuck insane as ever, Sadcat. Too bad you are sooooooo gullible and soooooo brainwashed.

Government Report Points To Dire Impact Of Climate Change On US
Forbes
AUG 8, 2017
(excerpts)
The National Climate Assessment combines 13 federal agencies analysis on climate change in the United States. The congressionally mandated report builds on past assessments on the impact of climate change within the United States, finding that climate change has already significantly impacted American's lives.

Thousands of studies conducted by tens of thousands of scientists around the world have documented changes in surface, atmospheric and oceanic temperatures; melting glaciers; disappearing snow cover; shrinking sea ice; rising sea level; and an increase in atmospheric water vapor. ... The last few years have also seen record-breaking, climate-related weather extremes, as well as the warmest years on record for the globe.” - Executive Summary of the National Climate Assessment

The National Climate Assessment finds that temperatures in the United States have risen dramatically since 1980, with the recent decades being the warmest of the past 1,500 years. The report summarizes thousands of studies which provide evidence for climate change taking place in the United States.

The report finds that in past few years Americans have witnessed “record-breaking, climate-related, weather extremes as well as the warmest years on record for the globe.” This is largely a result of global average annual temperatures increasing by more than 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880.

The report finds that temperatures in Alaska and the Arctic are rising twice as fast as the global average. This means accelerated melting of sea and land ice, driving increasing sea levels globally. Hence, a couple degree increase in global average temperatures will not be felt by someone in the tropics nearly as much as someone in high latitudes. However, it in many ways does affect populations in the tropics, especially coastal cities, from rising sea levels.

Oceans have risen globally by 8 to 9 inches since 1880, of which humans have made "substantial contribution" to that sea level rise. The report also finds that due to increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere the oceans are becoming more acidic, inhibiting marine life, especially those that require building shells or carbonate structures such as corals or mollusks.

The report also concludes that extreme weather events found in the U.S. and globally show "relatively strong evidence" that humans have been a contributing factor. Scientists are getting better at assessing individual extreme weather events and their potential linkage to climate change.

The report finds that extreme weather events are more frequent and more intense in the recent decades compared to the early 20th century. Extreme heat waves have become more common compared to extreme cold waves. In addition, the report finds increased rainfall by 4% on average for the continental U.S. since the beginning of the 20th century.

That's nice. Even if everything global warming/cooling/sky is falling thing were true it would have absolutely nothing to do w/ this Paris scam becides it is the excuses being used for the wealth redistribution.


Now carry on w/ your bolded cut and past propaganda posts layered w/ weak, childish insults.

Also known as spam.
