    I don’t know what happened to Danae’s mom, but I bet she had a premonition about that kid, packed her bags, and…

    I’m with Denae here. The entire premise of man made climatechange is a scam. This does not say there is not climate change, four times a year, just like clockwork, but blaming man, specifically western ccivilization is nothing but social engineering.

    The “correct term” was quickly switched to climate change because they realized that their original term was revealing them for the fools they are since the warming stopped, and what little had occurred was minor. Climate change allows them to point to anything and say “see, it’s happening,” never mind that changes in the climate occur constantly and always have. It does not change their global warming alarmist screams that children would grow up not knowing what snow was, or the fact that before the warming craze it was the next ice age we were on the verge of that had them clutching their pearls and fainting into their biscuits and tea. The islands have not sunk underwater, there is no northwest passage, the hurricanes have not panned out, the polar bears populations are thriving….and on and on it goes. Panicky nitwits notwithstanding.

    There’s a difference between climate and weather. The climate is definitely changing and man is playing a part. Your local climate may go up or down and the weather on any given day is not indicative of climate. that’s like the old Laugh In joke, a partial score for the game 6

    Danae is going to grow up to be Sarah Palin…to the extent that that constitutes growing up anyway.

    “Anthropogenic Climate Change”, regionally recognized initially was the original term in the mid 1950’ s by Dasmann and others. Global warming came after laws, and use, and models, changed things on a broader scale.


    Danae would resent the science “preachy”, but we’ve seen Dadae in denial for some time, on many things.

    i’m solid with you beau-no-boo. but the other side can’t yield an inch, being divinely inspired, ie – black as night coal funded.

    united we stand but divided — into countries — not so much. color our species doomed. no, seriously, humanity is fark’n doooomed..

    crucial allegory from centuries ago (look it up): “the tragedy of the commons.”

    Well, since I ate yesterday, I guess there’s no such thing as world hunger any more …

    A slight caveat to you on the “ostrich mentality”- sticking your head in the sand isn’t likely to save your butt from the oncoming tornado or tsunami, whether man-made or a force of nature. Given the choice, if reducing human-sourced pollution MAY help a bit, I’m all for it. Better than being buried under styrofoam or drinking cesspool water.

    I’m not a scientist, so I can’t speak from a fact-based position about how much human activity can or can’t shift climate. But I grew up in the City of Pittsburgh when everything was coal-based. We burned it in our furnaces and particulate matter went up our chimneys and out into the air we inhaled,joining the clouds of pollution emitted by the smokestacks of the steel industry that was once the major employer.
    -
    Since Pittsburgh is surrounded by hills (some call them mountains, but they aren’t as tall as the ones further west), each time we had an inversion, there would be days when smog never let up.
    -
    Buildings were coated in soot. We hung our clothes outside to dry then (all we had was a wringer washer, no dryer), and before we brought the clothes and sheets back inside, we had to brush off all the coal dust.
    -
    There were many people whose lungs have been affected by those years. I have a cousin a few years older than I who never smoked and never lived in a home with smokers, and he is one of many Pittsburghers afflicted with what is called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
    -
    Whether burning fuel and contaminating the air with particulate matter causes climate change or not, it definitely contributes to human health problems. That in itself is reason enough to rethink what we’re doing.
    -
    One more point. You don’t get to hear about this often, since China has such rigid control over what news gets out. BBC will sometimes report on issues that the US news industry overlooks. There have been many brave Chinese parents who frequently risk arrest to protest the impact of industrial pollution on the health of their infants. Since they have been restricted to a ‘one-child’ policy, watching that one child suffer increasing ill health is devastating to those families.
    -
    We need to consider the health impacts of what we put into our air.

    I live in Chicago, where almost every large building used to be heated with coal. There used to be dozens of coal yards all around me, some with chain driven trucks, now there’s just one coal dealer in the entire area.
    I used to watch all their smoke stacks belch black smoke from October through May. Now it’s just white smoke from natural gas.
    Every limestone covered building was filthy from the thick, black smoke & there were a few covered in pink granite that few even knew were pink, until they were cleaned after the coal was gone.
    When I was in HS, there was a coal generating plant just a couple of blocks away, that had 150 foot high coal piles next to it & trainloads of coal delivered every day. Four huge stacks released the black smoke. All around the city are tall chimneys which are relics of the coal burning age.
    Because of that, I never saw any stars until I went to camp as a kid in Michigan, a couple of hundred miles away.
    Now I see stars every night, even with all the street lights making it difficult to see them.

    Good riddance to coal!
