Maybe our governments should stop geo-engineering?
End high-altitude aerosol injections ?
Stop blasting the atmosphere to steer weather systems?
Just a thought.

Science does say we're f***ed

Yes , in a few million years or so , the sun will go red giant
That is the only sure case I know of
So , where did your dogma come from ?
Not your neighbor , I hope
Oh , wait.

Yes I did.

I sat there and tortured myself watching the videos of Cortez speaking.

I deserve the GD medal of honor.

Unlike someone trolling this thread.



You gave your uninformed opinion on what she said without adding any facts of your own to back up your claims.

No. The generation that won WWII was the Greatest Generation.

The Boomers were their children that accomplished nothing. So in response they ruined the world.

thanks!

GASP!!!! Where are the funds coming from? Not enough to just tax the rich. Would you all be willing to cogh up say 50% of your cheque in taxes to cover all of this....and don't forget free health care for all as well.

Well, the problem here is, with people like AOC you're way out of their 'breadbasket', their skill set and their comfort zone.

It's much easier, and more widely received, to propose ideas the selfish can see benefit in immediately. To them, these are abstract ideas which don't benefit them directly and immediately. Consequently, people like AOC wouldn't get any traction with these platforms. Their voice would be lost, and they are no match for the scientific communities on both sides of these issues. In order to effectively argue these platforms the debate quickly descends into "techno-babble" and "jargon" which flies miles over most people's heads.

It's the old..."A bird in the hand..." thing.

There's a meme floating around where it says;

"Today's democrats have more in common with Lee Harvey Oswald than with JFK."

So you would rather not contribute anything , if it made the world a better place for future generations?

The U.S. Health Care System: An International Perspective




The U.S. health care system is unique among advanced industrialized countries. The U.S. does not have a uniform health system, has no universal health care coverage, and only recently enacted legislation mandating healthcare coverage for almost everyone

There might not be enough if we just tax the rich.

At the at the same time, when we stopped taxing the rich, middle class income stagnated, poverty grew, and upper class income exploded.

Yeah renenewable energy- Create a power grid that DEPENDS on the weather to work. See CLIMATE(WEATHER) change.

Better efficiency for EVERY SINGLE BUILDING in the country. (There's not enough money in the country to do that)

How does killing the fastest mode of transportation known to exist improve transportation.

The only thing that's been done so far is to OUTSOURCE it to China,putting people OUT OF WORK.

Not more jobs. UNION jobs where they collective bargain to pay them more CASH from our wallet, and You have to pay them for the privilege of having a job.

Better education? Public schools produce nothing more than idiots. SEE Cortez.

Your world would end if AOC gets what she wants.

Because it would be impossible to work or live in.

Do you not recognize the irony that your argument against the GND is essentially: We ruined the environment too much so now it's going to cost too much to fix?

I know you are smarter than that. No one is suggesting that we kill air transpiration. They still fly all the time in Japan. My friend there ride the speed train constantly.

Oh and the public schools? Most of us here are products of the public schools. I guess we all are idiots.

The EPA was created to stop that from happening.

So what are you talking about?

Yep we are.

So if people have problems with what I say.

Should have spent more money paying teachers more.

That'd would have made me an Einstein.

Fer surez.

She sounds like that "An inconvenient truth" guy, ran for president, turned joker.... Al Gore. Side by side, the grim reaper and the big windbag. We expect comedy from Alexandria, we smile wondering what absurdity she will spew today ? Those charming bug eyes, that horse smile, who can resist.

She's becoming as popular as, and running neck and neck with George Soros. Who thought this goofy Puerto Rican ditz could capture more than her home town as an audience ?

you are pretty frustrated and angry it seems. if we had billions of your kind we would have maybe ten years before everything ends. fact is: nowadays young people are more and better educated as youngsters in the 50s/60s or 70s. more kids go to school worldwide. thats not becauso of folks like you because you don't care about others. any constructive proporsals?
