    Hey counter intelligence -

    Re: "Apparently leftists call that 'tolerance'"

    No patriotic and discerning American can nor should tolerate the corrupt and traitorous Putin puppet in the White House OR his equally corrupt and traitorous administration.

    Re: " . . . Republicans are 'winning'"

    The Russians have been winning, at least temporarily . . . As are the Republicans. And Americans are losing, but again only temporarily.

    When Republicans win, America loses.

    Why do YOU think our Russian enemies celebrate when Republicans win elections here?

    Does Putin want to make America great again?

    Hey Thid Barker -

    No, but you SHOULD believe the prognostications of legitimate climate scientists, who virtually all disagree with you, Rush Limbaugh, and the drunk at the bar who can't find enough change for another beer.

    Deal, when you promise to only breath carbon dioxide, it's not toxic I keep hearing it's good for you.

    Fossil fuels are not the way of the future. Retrain coal miners to work in the future energy fields. People are so willing to destroy the earth, air, environment for a buck and a lobbyist. One day that short-sightedness will come back to bite them in ways they can't imagine.

    Prometheus Platypus: Practice what you preach! No more coal or petroleum for you! Walk everywhere you go! Grow all your own food and produce your own clothing! No fair driving on paved roads or heating your home, using medicines, all produced, transported and delivered with "filthy hydrocarbons"!

    Cherry picking a handful of phrases taken out of context does not disprove thousands of respected scientific studies which all attest to the reality of climate change and its deleterious effects. There is no such thing as "clean coal," and instead of pumping money into the dying coal industry, Trump should revive programs to insure coal miners dying of black lung have proper medical care. Ironic that many of these programs are disappearing with the Trump administrations' efforts to dismantle the ACA.

    Stimulus response.

    The media creates a stimulus news report and the response is predictable.

    It's so sad that Conservatives want to go back to the good ol' days, when science was evil and religion ruled, I think it's referred to as the "Dark Ages" by most people, but it was the Golden years for Conservatives Christians.

    The biggest problem I see is those who claim Global Warming to be "Fake" won't suffer their poor choice of supporting filthy hydrocarbon instead of trying to make the world better for those who come after us.

    @Gary O

    "the forces of darkness.
    When Republicans win, the whole world loses in the long run."

    Apparently leftists call that "tolerance"
    Which explains why Republicans are "winning"

    Global warming predictions from the past:
    2007 : Jonathon Amos, BBC - Arctic summers ice free ‘by 2013′
    2007 : National Geographic - Arctic Sea Ice Gone in Summer Within Five Years
    2007 : Seth Borenstein, AP News - “Could all Arctic ice be gone by 2012″
    2008 : Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center - “ice free” Arctic by 2008
    2009: Al Gore - "Ice Free within 5-7 years"
    2013: Paul Beck, Sierra Club - “Arctic sea ice will vanish in 2013”
    2013: Peter Wadhams, Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group, University of Cambridge - "ice-free Arctic in two years".

    Then we see what really happened: 2018: MASIE (National Snow and Ice Data Center)- Arctic sea ice up 44% since 2012

    Since NONE of the wild predictions have happened, should we believe any more extremist's environmental predictions?

    Another victory for Republicans, dirty energy, and the forces of darkness.

    When Republicans win, the whole world loses in the long run.

    Some coal miner in Utah will work a little longer in exchange for a declining quality of life around the world.

    Republicans call that "winning."
