    Apparently, Chris Matthews falsely believes Bronco’s powerful victory means that most Americans who voted for him are convinced that global warming is real. I think it’s real. But I’m not so sure about most Americans, even most Democrats, let alone independents.


    And Republicans? Ha! Why even go there?

    As long as the oiligarchy can pay someone to say it isn’t, there are those who will buy that line. Reality is harder to take, but we’d better start paying attention anyway.

    “It’s a long process.”


    Too long apparently. I’ve been reading about climatologists who are now saying we’ve already passed the deadline, and it’s already too late. They went on to say the best climatology can do now is to help humans to just COPE with the coming disaster.

    My wife’s polar bear collection says it exists. Certainly looks like it from the last decade of evidence. And greenhouse gases can be reduced. lots of evidence of that. Even more important: it takes fifteen gallons of water to make one gallon of gas. We may well run out of the stuff to drink even as the brine floods our coasts.

    Any time you can show me an experiment that proved organic matter comes spontaneously from inorganic matter, let me know. Only one of many ever made the claim and it was contaminated, so…

    Re 4th panel: ANOTHER hurricane? FEMA hasn’t had time to stop dragging its feet in response to the last one.

    Chris Matthews (panel 3): “Next up, the 99% of climatologists who agree that global-warming is man-made.”


    Chris has it wrong. I’ve never ever heard even one climatologist say global warming is man-made. All of them I’ve ever heard or read say it is only PARTIALLY caused by human activity. Or it is being ACCELERATED by human activity. Never that it is 100% caused by human activity. It is a combination of mother nature’s activity and human activity that is causing it.


    I’m not sure where Trudeau’s going with this story line.

    @freeholder1 – yesterday.
    Thanks for the advice and the encouragement. I’m in Australia, not the US, and it’s a big topic at the moment how “over-55s” are being almost totally ignored by potential Aussie employers.

    I did all of the things you recommended more than 10 years ago with the help of a career coach when it was obvious the role I’d had then for over 10 years was coming to an end. It all worked really well and I extended my career dramatically with some senior and independent international roles.

    Now this experience counts for nothing with Aussie employers and all the opportunities that have come up have been with international companies and outside Australia. I’m still constrained by family so it’s been a challenge to close out something to which I can give the effort required.

    I have a post-grad. Engineering degree, training qualifications and Asian language skills. I have plenty to offer, just nowhere to offer it right now.

    re: Contribution by man to climate change.

    Agreed.

    We are currently in an “interglacial” period of an Ice Age that has lasted about 2.5 million years. The Earth seems to have emerged from its most recent glaciation over the past 25,000 years – which happens to coincide with the massive flourishing of human civilisation.

    Our modern civilisation’s use of fossil fuels and other activities producing “greenhouse gases” (e.g., industrial-scale farming / methane) are unprecedented in the 4.5 billion year history of our planet. The potential contribution to climate change of homo sapiens’ activities are a complete wildcard and surely deserve a great deal of caution and careful management.

    “Shame on Mike for referring to Kim as a “nerd”!!!”
    No, nowadays nerd is a term of high approbation.
    I have a Venn Diagram somewhere that proves it…

    Organiuc matter probably did not comr from inorganic matter, but Earth was a rock without water until asteroids brought it and with it life. Or do you really believe in Constantine’s fairy tales?
