How Does America's Response to Climate Change Look From Abroad? | NYT Opinion



How does Germany have zero waste sent to landfill? We could certainly learn something.

What is the evidence? I want to know more before I invest time into a video.

There's practically infinite landfill space.

Does the video talk about how the US achieved Paris Accord goals despite breaking the agreement, meanwhile others that did not withdraw failed to achieve their goals?

Surely the video talks about how the US would have a flat population growth without immigration, meanwhile other countries continue to explode in numbers (no judgement implied in the comment).

Galvatron1 -- An error occurred, please to try again later.

It's probably me but what's the synopsis? I think of things like the Oregon Country Fair and CAHOOTs and Bonneville Power Administration. And that's all Left Coast stuff.

It's true that the Frankfurt School Marxists have been infiltrating for a generation or two. But the institutions they used are rotting; voting, Hollywood and academia.

My hope is that there is a new Speaker of The House in 2022. I hear that that person doesn't have to be an elected Congresscritter. The House can do what it wants.

First off that video is full of lies. The US has actually reduced CO2 emissions. Countries like Germany have dramatically increased CO2 trading nuclear energy for "safe" coal fired power plants and Russian natural gas. Also no mention about how china blows away the rest of the works as far as CO2, heavy metals and other toxic pollutants go.

Well I tried. Stopped the video halfway, because why do I want the opinion of a few ignorant foreigners? They didn't know the US has landfills? Every country buries their garbage, except apparently the ones sending plastic out into the ocean.

That video would be embarrassing if a high school student had produced it, but to have the Times logo is surprising. It's as if they aren't even interested in news anymore.
