  13. Michael VanGundy says:

    When you build a city like New Orleans below the level of the water, that's just poor planning. When you buy a building that is being protected by a series of levies. That's taking a risk. When they flood, that's just inevitable.

  14. Alejandro Ambrocio says:

    Trump said last time (June 2017), "The climate change is a hoax and is Chinese tale" and it is just to scary people.

  15. Chicken Alfredo says:

    Talking to a bunch of Iowa farmers about climate change is like talking to a cat about coming inside on a hot summer night.

  16. John Watt says:

    In the 1960's, National Geographic Magazine printed an article about global warming, saying it was happening.
    They said that of all the places on earth, the Niagara Peninsula would benefit the most from warmer weather.
    That's because we're in between the Great Lakes Erie and Ontario, both moderating influences. If global warming
    is the best here, that means it has affected us the most. Birds don't fly south any more. Insects and frogs are
    disappearing. When it gets warm in the winter, the trees and crops start to grow, and when it freezes they die.

    People used to drive their cars out onto lakes and canals to ice-fish. Not now, no ice, or thin and melting ice.
    The average temperature of the Niagara Peninsula has been warmer than Florida, five of the last seven years.
    There can be no doubt global warming exists. It began with the over-population of Europe burning wood for
    fireplaces, ovens and furnaces. By 1750, there wasn't a tree in England big enough to use for a boat mast.
    The natives of southern Ontario noticed a change in their weather, saying winter used to be one long spring,
    but now there is an unhealthy chill to the air, and the birds weren't singing as much. There is authentic reality.

  20. Kip McEwen says:

    Defeat for leftist Dems at the hands of Repubs and centrist Dems: NASA has reported for years now that Mars, Jupiter, Pluto etc, are and have been warming. AOC says this is proof that humans are causing these planets to warm.

  21. Tricks & Riffs says:

    How about stop spraying our skies with chemicals and let's see how the climate reacts?

  22. Some Person says:

    Woah, when did Aaron Carter start reporting the news?
