Brian_G: Viaducts are well tested climate adaptation technology.
Fair Game: Why a duck?

It was a statement, not a question: ""Adapting" is not "doing sonething[sic] about it". It's also false, adaptation is the way mankind has ALWAYS dealt with climate change. Nobody has ever demonstrated any strategy other than adaptation for dealing with climate change. We have many thousands of years learning how to adapt to every climate on Earth but nobody has EVER successfully mitigated climate change.

What's that? Bytching about 'partial' news?

What say you take on your own hypocrisy.

**poof**

All that CO2 puffed into the atmoshpere via YOU... a warmist whining about CO2 already about "crisis" levels.

How can you live with yourself?

Warmists hate being called out for their own hypocrisy.,, and likewise for the scientists, politicians, spokesmen and celebrities that all claim to believe in the "consensus" "settled" science, but don't act as if the "crisis" is actually anything they have do do about it. Just preach some government rules and continue on with their lives as if they've solved the problem.

Agreed.

The green troll loves to play little snipe-fest word games to argue minutiae -- then when adults tire of his antics, claim they're running from the question.

Whatever....

And yet he's posting and posting his "science" arguments -- puffing out more and more CO2 that's already at "crisis" levels.

And his farts don't stink either.... just ask him.

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO.
Yes, over a half a million for a job she had no experience for, nor did her degree major in journalism. Nice first job.........paybacks to the Clintons are hell.

Many experts who've studied this Global Warming
disagree with each other,
completly disagreeing!
If your car has a broken transmission no mechanic
will disagree with another mechanic that the problem
are the brakes or the engine!
If you suffer from a toothache, no dentist disagrees
with another one that the problem is your big toe!

Listen ya all, no one knows anything about the reasons behind
The Global Warming!
No one knows how many Stars (Suns) or
Planets.....or.....Galaxies are out there in distant Space,
you simply can't see that far in Space,
and you can not see back in time either,
and even if you did, you wouldn't know the reasons behind it!

I had a mechanic for years, who worked on my car. Once, he worked on the engine & carburetor, to get my car's power & mpg good again. He never could. I found another mechanic, who discovered that my brakes were slightly on. Changed the brakes & my car was fine, again.

All sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars have no science or mathematics to do any peer reviewed science or figure out most science & mathematical problems.

I'm not actually denying GW, I'm only saying how it really is,
that no one really knows, not me not you, no one!
And maybe the old mechanic was milking you out of dough,
kind of like some are milking us all for GW?!

Good one Sven. I like your reasoning. This entire debate is ideological. Not scientific.
