    False Equivalence on Climate Change

    This, unfortunately, doesn't only happen in relation to climate change, but this piece discusses how it's happening even in the so-called liberal media.



    Since this piece is a “perfect” example of what not to do, let’s briefly examine where it goes awry.

    “The right says action on climate change will wreck the economy. The left says the clean-energy revolution will be an economic boon. Both sides are overplaying their hands,” the article begins.


    All three sentences are deeply flawed.


    The right is at odds with the core conclusion of essentially every major independent study on the subject — including the comprehensive review by the world’s leading scientists signed off on line-by-line by every major government — that even the strongest climate action would have no measurable impact on economic growth.
    The left is supposedly overplaying its hand when it is in fact being totally accurate. There is no question whatsoever that the clean energy revolution will be an economic boon. Already renewables are cheaper than the competition in many places in the world and soon they’ll be cheaper pretty much everywhere. When you throw in the plummeting cost for batteries, the revolution becomes unstoppable.

    Even major companies are seeing the need for clean energy. Costs less,works better.

    When are we going to get rid of the ignorant old men,and a few Stupid Republican women in Congress so this country can move forward?

    Watching these two disastrous storms,seeing the millions hurting is making me so angry that I am actually liking what that narcisstic old man in the WhiteHouse has started.

    I hope he permantly neuters Mitch,Ryan and all of their hide bound followers!

    And how about those WIDE-EYED LIBERALS at the PENTAGON moving every piece of equipment that will operate on it, to biodiesel, green operation, sustainables or whatever other military nomenclature they have (they have a LOT). I laughed my ass off NUMEROUS years back when I realized this and at least 10 years back saw an extensive PUBLISHED plan by the NAVY (& Marines) on mitigating for CLIMATE CHANGE while every stupid ass pandering or 'believing' Republican asshole was dismissive and running on there is no such thing!

    Maybe we need to thank climate change we have had a drought in hurricanes since 12 years. the drought was broken by Harvey/


    Long term since 1969 there have been very few Hurricanes in the US

    2 years we had major Hurricane seasons 2005 and 2017 have 1 thing in common. INCREASED SOLAR ACTVITY (the Sun woke up).

    I am enjoying them being made the laughing stocks that WE have known them to be for at least the past 5 or 6 years. McConnnell is useless as tits on a boar. Ryan is an Ayn Rand loving little sanctimonious HYPOCRITE who has his education and 'WELFARE' to his mother, upon his father's death, to thank for his LIFE!

    We aren't disputing climate change, we are disputing the fact that its the fault of humans and that you can actually stop it.

    You can't.

    Also, clean energy is not cheaper, not even close.

    Despite all evidence to the contrary?
