And if we don't do anything about global warming, it may cause terrible economic repercussions and cause our lifestyles to revert to pre-industrial levels.
LOL. Wow, that's very backwards.

That's the goal with the mmcc/cc/gw scam NOW. An ongoing working plan to de-industrialize the U.S (and England) right NOW into 3rd world status. We peons can all just walk and ride bicycles like korea pre 50's.
(Which the UK has now made their goal by 2050.)

Elite (and cc high priests) will stay on top and the rest that are left, are designated to be their serfs. Hope you like bowing, scraping and please, memorize the words-"by your leave".

Wow! Close up & very personal! Thanks for surviving.... & saving your wife! I don't know why homes are built in Tornado Alley without basements. Housing developments today, do away with basements.
Even a small basement with reinforced concrete walls & ceiling, just big enough to accomodate family members, is all that is needed. Better yet, a common room underground, shared by four adjoining homes.
Did you have weather radio that warns residents to take cover? Don't the radios turn on automatically in case of emergencies? There are other ideas, too.
If there was a market for basements or shelters, meaning if people were willing to pay for them, developers would build them. Mandating them is just government interference with the free market.

The "free market" doesn't exist, it's a charade created by right-wingers and capitalists bent on maximizing their profits at the public's expense.

We'll add that as just one more thing you don't know anything about. The list has gotten very long to date.
I hope you enjoy living in the wetlands.

Climate change believers are cold hearted bullies who fear monger our children with their CO2 death threats all because science says their crisis only “MIGHT” happen because science has never said it WILL happen in 28 years. Even Bush didn’t threaten my kids like this. Who’s the neocon?
So how close to the brink will science take us before they say their crisis is as inevitable as they like to say asteroid hits are?

You are full of hatred. How about learning a little something related to what you are lying about?

I came up with the thought, after Joplin was devastated a few weeks after us, that the next time we see the news video of the actual destruction on the ground in some disaster, that we should think that the survivors' minds figuratively look like that too. The disaster mind is torn up, jumbled, confused, splintered, and broken..
Indeed.

One could say the same about war victims, even the soldiers involved.

I'm over it for the most part; never had time to whine and wouldn't do any good anyway.
..
I tried to get two of my neighbors to build houses instead of buying mobile homes, but they simply couldn't afford anything better with what they got from their insurance and FEMA. And I told them about the company that I got my storm shelter from and the subsidy the state of Mississippi would provide, but money was still the problem. All I can say now, for myself and my neighbors, is that if your lifetime chance of being struck by a tornado is one in a million, I hope that the odds don't increase.
I'm hopeful that you and your community will have peace and progress.

You write so well; a book could help, too..:)

'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' can't ask a proper scientific question because it never had science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc in its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa. Of course,'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' never had any other science or mathematics training.
At least,'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver' tried math calculations, tho only a few attempts ended in errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES & 73 million TIMES.'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' has never attempted math calculations, which prove that its proficiency in math is worse than that of 'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver'.

If you are having trouble figuring out whether or not a certain area of your property is actually a wetland, you are in good company. Many people have the same question, and even the experts can disagree. In recent years, however, ecologists have expanded our knowledge of wetlands significantly, and have developed ways for defining and classifying wetlands.

Scientists define wetlands as transitional areas between land and water; these areas are saturated with water or covered by shallow water at least part of each year, or part of most years. These wet conditions determine the type of soil and plants found there. When determining whether an area is a wetland or not, wetland specialists look for the presence of those soils associated with wet conditions (hydric soils) and for plants that can tolerate saturated soil (hydro phytes).

You're as repetitious and predictable a troll as Brainless_G. Although you're "threatening our kids" meme is pretty offensive, as opposed to just silly or disingenuous.

That sounds like conspiracy theory thinking...you know like the conspiracy that global warming is a charade created by governments to maximize their control and increase the revenues to government coffers.
