Climate scientist. Look at how thick his robe and beard is. He’s getting ready for the coming ice age that was predicted in 1970.
Farside99 (and similar) the ice ages are predicted by the Milankovitch cycles, three cycles cosmologists recognize as causing regular changes in Earth’s climate by changes in shape of the Earth’s orbit around the sun, the Earth’s axial tilt and precession of tilt. These cycles are approximately 21,000, 43,000 and 100,000 years long and proven by archeological evidence and ice cores from glaciers still existing. They show that we should be slowly approaching an ice age and cooling off. The fact that the Earth is slowly warming up (“global” means an average of temperatures from all around the world, not just from a couple of selected spots) points out the disruption of natural cycles. You might want to investigate the thermo-haline conveyor system and how melting glaciers affect it.
He’s the guru on the Himalayan mountain that came down because of the melting glaciers.
He’s a realist.
It’s actually not so bad. He’s going to see Trump.
He’s the new rich guy who bet under 17 in the Super Bowl.
If the religious zealots, that are brainwashing the Rump to manufacture the Apocalypse so they can be taken up by the rapture, have their way, the end will be sooner than the ecological collapse due to global waming (er, warming).
Doomsayers are usually right, eventually. So what?
Either way, somebody is going to suffer.
Poor guy! He only just now realized that everyday is the end of the world for someone.
I’d take him for a political prognosticator who warned you what would happen when a certain N.Y. huckster was crowned Orange Emperor.
I say he is both. Each are equally scary if the predictions become reality.
Trump drives a lot of people crazy.
The list should include “climatologist”
Hopefully he’s just a generic comic character. They’ve been spouting that nonsense for decades.
I may be a bit frozen this morning, but it simply seems to me that the implied idea is that …the speaker is concerned more for immanent impact on his economic portfolio than some esoteric thing that his HVAC system can handle, given the money for it. The other gentleman seems a bit more pensive, perhaps wondering variously whether he should invest more in HVAC research, or whether his fellow human beings will factor into the question.
I think he’s probably both
He is gloating
An economist is a person who will tell you tomorrow why what he predicted yesterday didn’t happen today.
He’s a Wall St bankster. The impending doom predicted by an astrophysicist doesn’t scare him. An economic crisis on the other hand is panic inducing
DNC Chairman Folks
Or, even Worse, an Astrophysicist with a sideline in Climatology.
Cassandra, daughter of Priam, King of Troy, was cursed to always predict the future accurately, but that no-one would believe her. It drove her literally mad. This guy with the sign is far too late in saying I told you so – the war is already over.
The world doesn’t end just because one thing goes wrong, unless it’s the one thing that does end the world.
Wiley, my favorite Mainer, does ‘it’ again – punched up a great discussion with one ’toon.
So where was he BEFORE Obamacare?
