It's Settled Science -- this time

We're doomed, let's face it. And it's on the back of the United States to raise the trillions of dollars necessary to provide income redistribution to save the planet. You pay the weather tax or we all die young.

But the football has been kicked down the field (again) to 2035.

Predicting the end of the world has filled churches (and collection plates) for many centuries. The end of the Aztec Calendar in 2012 was fodder for this sort of man-generated hoax, as was the arrival of Y2K. 

Al Gore, the progressive icon for settled science, said that much of the world would be wiped out in 2016 and received a Nobel Prize...that's worth just as much as the Peace Prize awarded to Barack for being half black.

Climate alarmists claim in a newly published study that the world will reach a “point of no return” if there is no dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. “We show that there are strict deadlines for taking climate action,” said Henk Dijkstra, a co-author of the study (https://www.thedailybeast.com/climate-changes-point-of-no-return-is-now-2035-study). The news media is extensively reporting on the prediction, characterizing the study as ominous, yet the study serves as a refreshing reminder of how all previous predictions of climate deadlines and doomsdays failed to materialize.
In 1989 a United Nations senior environment official said entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth if global warming was not reversed before the year 2000. (https://www.apnews.com/bd45c372caf118ec99964ea547880cd0
In 2006 Al Gore wrote that “We have at most ten years—not ten years to decide upon action, but ten years to alter fundamentally the trajectory of global greenhouse emissions.” (https://www.forbes.com/sites/robertbradley/2016/09/23/climate-exaggeration-is-backfiring/#3cb2c5706ab0
Also in 2006 James Hansen said the world had just 10 years to take “serious action” about greenhouse gas emissions or we would cross of “tipping point” of climate danger. (http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2006/07/runaway-tipping-points-of-no-return/
In 2009 Hansen reduced the time he said we had to address global warming, writing “Barack Obama has only four years to save the world” from global warming. (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2009/jan/18/jim-hansen-obama)

Taking Notes

Rule: Never run out of air speed, altitude and ideas all at the same time.


I think that the progs are breaking this rule with the celebrated freaks and misfits that they're rolling out onto the American stage, backed by noteworthy failures such as Slow Joe Biden, John (woodenhead) Kerry, Elizabeth (Poke-a-haunt-us) Warren, Hillary will waddle out onto the stage again and don't count out that famous old communist, Bernie Sanders. All of them will run in 2020 with maximum hubris, confident in their capacity to defeat President Trump. 

Commentary

If I had Nike running shoes or owned any Nike products, I'd throw them out. Fortunately for me, they've not shown me much and I think that the last Nike running shoes I had was something on the order of 20 years ago. So there's nothing to throw out.

Colon Kaepernick, their new poster child is one of those contemptible humans who plays well to the progressive handbook. Well done, Nike. I hope your stockholders approve of your decision... (hahaha) Don't look for wisdom in the progressive chambers of corporate America. Day one of their ad role-out cost the company $4 billion in stock value. 

Frankly, I'm sure that Osama bin Laden would be as popular with the progressives as Colon K is.
