    That's right, we only have 12 years till the world ends due to Trump and global warming, so why have children?

    They would only suffer horribly.

    AOC says having children is dangerous!
    Well it is, just look at you. Your poor mother. 🙁

    She didn't say any of that as your link makes clear.

    She is fear mongering and you know it.

    Disgusting.

    Does anyone here believe her comments about the catastrophe coming in 12 years due to carbon emissions?

    She didn't say that either.

    The weight of scientific evidence says that the window for actually doing something that will avert catastrophic climate change is narrow. Republicans have made absolutely no proposals to address this issue while AOC and others have at least unveiled a plan to meet this challenge. IF you are unhappy with the details of that plan, it would behoove you and other critics to reveal your own ideas on how to deal with climate change.

    So if in 12 years the narrow gate has closed will you people stop torturing us?

    Hmm?

    My guess is no.

    Wasn't it Al Gore who said a decade ago that the window would close in a decade?

    Yeah, that was Al. But the libs will tell you that isn't exactly what he meant or some such, and a thread will open on what he meant, and our lives will pass before us through about 250 posts about what Al meant. No1Maruauder and Handy usually know what people mean or are thinking, so hopefully they can curtail such an elongated thread! I'd rather spend my time creating jobs .

    So you have no proposals just like the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress.

    The 12 year figure came from UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and naturally it doesn't say the world is going to end if we do nothing. Rather:

    The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.

    Of course, I suppose the UN is just a giant socialist conspiracy and dumping ever increasing amounts of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions has no effect at all on climate.

    This type of BS is why the Republican Party has ceased to be a serious political party and is now merely a clown show headed by a reality show joke.

    What world government does not want a large pot of money?

    The Paris Accord Trump pulled out of was a joke, not only to climate deniers, but the scientists who said it would have done less than a very little other than cost the common man a great deal in taxation. The main offenders seem to be China and India which will continue to do what they are doing.

    In the interim, I hear carbon emissions have gone down under Trump. Funny that.

    And what will governments like the one in France do as people begin to revolt about higher fuel costs? Will they continue to buckle under the pressure?

    In fact, should they?

    There's been a slight drop in emissions which is a continuation of the last few years of Obama's administration. But if Trump energy policies are actually implemented, emissions would rise since he wants to go back to extensive use of coal.

    Well, what do you want to use? You, like the rest of the Left, don't like nuclear power.

    So I reckon just continue to collect taxes to do more "research" on that pie in the sky technology to come along and save us all.

    Also, just put a windmill and solar panel in your back yard and call it a day.

    No. She didn’t.

    Your post, as always, can only be summed by using words banned from RHP.

    You, sir, are a moron.
