Leftards still crying to tax your wallet more.. Lefties are fascists remember that. I used to vote lefty NEVER again..! if you over 25 years old and still voting left you're probably homeless and a junky or a pedo or only voting cuz you think republicans hate gays or blacks.. which is nonsense brainwash we got lots of black republicans.

    With Stalin your hamburgers are made out of nothing and if you complain you become a hamburger for Stalin because under communism and democratic socialism (NAZISM) you are forced to vote the leftist liberal socialist party line or you're de personed like the fascists did to conservatives in the past.

    The green new deal was voted down because it was ridiculous. Not sure if it made it into the version that was voted down, but the first version released on an official website included a guaranteed income to those unable or unwilling to work. I am 27, never owned a car, lived most of my adult life in apartments with solar panels, try to be plastic free as much as possible. I have nothing against legislation to slow down and hopefully stop climate change, but I read the green new deal and it sounded like it was written by stoned college kids. P.S. setting goals before figuring out how to reach them sounds incredibly stupid to me. I don’t think this is a left wing/right wing issue at all.

      When every nation on the planet agrees to follow an agreed upon set of rules and regulations, I'll be far more interested in using my tax dollars. The way it stands right now, I already have two toilets I can use to flush my money, I don't need to send it to the gov.

    If the US eliminated all carbon emissions, India and China would completely erase that progress with their current projected carbon emissions. Us carbon emissions is already decreasing, if you want to fight climate change just look at India and China.

    This paper is really a great understanding of how we measure thermal increase, but how we can confuse it. Since it has come out, I have yet to hear any dispute that works for it.

    And this Video has a basic oversight of what a scientific mind decisively discerns about the understanding of how a base can impact that data.

    BTW: Global trade and transportation are the primary cause global CO2 factors rising. So if your really worried about it, stop buy stuff from global companies and buy locally. And support more Nuclear plants. Its not the 50's and we know much more about nuclear fuels, ever heard of Thorium or Helium 3? it might be a while, but this path at least looks better for us.

    . The exact same people who just a few years ago blared, "Climate Change is an invention!", are now blaring, "Climate's change, there's nothing we humans can do anything about it!" And yes, I'm speaking very specifically to the absolute loudest of loud Conservative Christians because the thought process goes like this: "God made the planet, God put humans here, He made sure Humans can't really truly affect the Climate like HE can, ergo, Humans really have no responsibility for the changing Climate and really can't do anything about it." The same thing, just substitute God with "Free Market" or "Freedom" or just a general "everything I don't like is 'Socialism' (their twisted understanding of the term) or 'Communism'. To both of these groups, pose them the same following question:
    Here's what you ask them: "Ok, so you're willing to run a little experiment where Human History is condensed down to the same scale *Your House* would be vs. the "livable" surface of the Earth right? And have that space filled with the closest analogy to "human industriousness" (ie, Ants of _all_ strains) in the same pace as that scaled length of Human History, right?" Watch the massive backpedal of how dirty ants are and how they will NOT have their house defiled in that way, blah blah blah. Then watch as no lesson is learned and they still think that everyone but them is wrong.

    Bill Nye made a great video on big think where he explains how to store energy in a very large hydraulic piston the size of a city block where a big hole is dug then lined with a waterproof retaining cylinder. Then we can build the piston end and fill it with soil or rocks or whatever you want and develop on top of it. Solar and wind power overflow will be used to pump water into the piston chamber lifting the piston end. Once it comes to night time, the piston gates are released an it pushes water through a turbine

People always predict the end of the world due to climate change, and yes it is a problem that shouldn't be ignored, but continually predicting a disaster that never comes and then saying no one has done anything to stop climate change. Is it really surprising that there are people who don't believe it's happening. It's like the boy who cried flood. People say that deniers won't believe it until the ice caps disappear, but when you've been lied to multuple times, why should you? Also the GND is fucking stupid and AOC should feel ashamed.
