Whoever took the time to watch the flamewar video? I'm still giggling.

Do you know about the New Guy meme?

It all went down on Twitter. Not that I go there. I learnt about it on Youtube.

It's drawn comment from:
  • Short Fat Otaku
  • Akkad Daily
  • ClownfishTV
  • Matt Jarbo
  • MR. OBVIOUS
  • Goose Boose

I don't go to Reddit much anymore, since TheDonald.win escaped the quarantine there.

Glacier National Park to remove all 'glaciers will be gone by 2020' signs

https://www.kpax.com/news/local-news...-by-2020-signs

Quote:
GLACIER NATIONAL PARK — Glacier National Park is removing signs that state all glaciers will be melted by 2020.

Glacier National Park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen explained that since the early 2000s scientists have reflected and analyzed data stating glaciers would recede by 2020.

She told MTN News that the latest research shows shrinking, but in ways much more complex than what was predicted. Because of this, the park must update all signs around the park stating all glaciers will be melted by 2020.

The sign at St. Mary’s Visitor Center was removed in May of 2019 and other signs will be removed around the park as budgets permit.

Kurzmen says Glacier National Park will work with the US Geological Survey to monitor the glaciers and update the remainder of the signs as necessary.

Are you trying to aggravate them?
Now they are going to replace that with "glaciers will be melted by 2030". Then January 2, 2030 they will be taking those down too and putting up the next dooms date until the sign is buried under a glacier when the next ice age gets here.

How to talk to "climate deniers".
1 don't talk about how to fix climate change, talk about how to uphold the system.
Since your government never intended to use the funds taken in the name of climate change to fix climate change and at the same time keep the rich getting richer and how to turn citizens into surfs.
2 don't talk about it how people care for or don't care for the earth. They are giving all the hypocrite "believers" an out. Yeah I bet they don't want to talk about how they say they care yet they use natural gas home heating and drive gas burners.
3 talk about how it's a "consensus of scientists".
Sure use the absolute lie about the consensus that never was.
4 discuss values and stance before engaging in climate change discussion.
So they know if they need to start name calling and attacking or if they can all get comfortable and worship the same false idols and fake science then top it off with talk about how the sky is falling.

The MA climate from the good old days sounds awful.
So what's the bad news?
Don't worry in a few thousand years where you stand right now will be under hundreds of feet of ice.
You have no credible source for arson being the reason for the Australian wildfires. It's bunk.

The climate that we USED to have was relatively stable, and life had evolved to thrive in it. It has vastly changed - and it is rapidly changing even faster now. It means that plants and animals are dying, and species are disappearing.

There won't be an ice age any time soon:

I didn't say another ice age would be soon, I said and you quoted me as saying "a few thousand years". Is a few thousand years soon to you?
Just looking at the last 5 ice ages our next one will be at least 1,000 years from now with a low probability, 4,000 years being likely and definitely by 7,000 years.

We know 25 people have been arrested for starting fires.
Basic first semester criminology tells us that over 95% of crimes go unanswered for.
So we know they arrested maybe 10% of the perps, if the police investigating all happened to be epic god level crime fighters with unlimited money and resources they got 20% if they are lucky.
The ones that got caught may have been mental defectivs, just assumed no one would suspect arson, all the evidence of their crimes would be destroyed, ect.
My source is what's already been confirmed, 25 people charged and a century worth criminal data.
If you don't believe me look up arson criminology, which I know you wont because all believers are close minded.
I know how you guys hate learning stuff that broadens your horizons beyond what you are told to repeat.
