    It seems Pastis has been forgetting about them too lately, haha. Almost every day is a very cynical rat/pig strip now.

    Remember: It’s the SCIENTISTS who are lying about science. Not the CEOs of polluting industries, who would NEVER lie. Rush Limbaugh says so.

    Global cooling has already caused a great deal of sea rise, as a consequence of inland aridity, of course. Without the energy to force water vapor far inland, you get near-shore storms of greater intensity and frequency, coastal erosion, glacial recession, desertification, atmospheric warming and the increase of GHGs such as CO2 and CH4. Fortunately, the warming caused by aridity will ultimately reverse the cooling. We should see the deserts starting to green up again in another two thousand years or so, and probably a new ice age in ten to twelve thousand as the increased cooling capacity of inland fresh water resources reaches its peak level.

    Over here we’re paying £1.30 a litre for petrol, which works out around £5.90 a gallon, or $7.50. If that’s any consolation, Otto …

    A rule of thumb I have learned over many years: If something is portrayed in popular media as being “scientific,” but is nonetheless questioned by a significant percentage of the population (and by a fair number of scientists as well), then it’s a very good bet that it’s not really scientific at all; rather, it’s an unscientific idea that is being sold by use of that ever-persuasive label of “science.”

    I’m not going to argue about climate change. I just question whether the coasts are really “the worlds most productive land.”

    The oceans will only rise 300 feet if all the snow and ice melts.

    There’s already signs of climate change..levels in oceans have risen, water temps are warmer, which in turn is killing the coral reefs, sea life, etc. the GREAT BARRIER REEF is suffering from massive coral reefs dying off…. too bad trump and other GOP administrations have concealed and or altered the truth to the scientists reports. The warming waters underneath the ice in Antarctica is the cause of them melting at a rapid rate….this may be cyclical but it has reached a point more so than ever before. If the truth and facts are presented to the ignorant greedy people in Govt, they don’t know what to do with them. With the GOP there’s never a plan A or B! They’re more worried about their cronies and collecting bribe monies…they’re in it for their own agendas….

    I had no idea there were so many climate change deniers on Go Comics. You people must get your information from the funny papers.

    My theory is that Pastis stopped using the crocs because he’d over-used them, and he stopped using Zebra because the stripes take a little longer to draw. (First appearance of Zebra in how many months?) As for the climate change deniers, I don’t read those comments. Extremely stupid people depress me.

    Except for a few species, most crocs cannot survive (for long) in a salt water environment. Of course, evolution and natural selection would eventually remedy that one way or another.

    Oh wait; like climate change, evolution and natural selection are just theories. That is to say, “fake news.” So no worries, right? /s

    Ice takes up more space than water because of hydrogen-bonding. If all the ice were to melt, why would the oceans rise considering over 90% of an iceberg is under water already.

    However, these crocs are almost certainly Nile crocodiles (Crocodylus niloticus), which are specifically freshwater crocodiles. Thus, if the sea rose significantly, they would not be able to tolerate this half-submerged condition in saltwater.

    You missed that the “experts” are not really experts in the field of climate or even weather. (thiink Al Gore) Definition of expert. Ex is a has been and a spirt is a drip under pressure.

    And the Crocs do a walk-on, or prance-on, or run-on.

    Not yet a “climate disaster,” though….
