Forum Post: "I can do lots of things, I can't change the weather," Christie said Sunday.

Perhaps this is the challenge and the opportunity we have in climate change. It is often said that life doesn’t gives us challenges it gives us opportunities, none of us can change the weather, but we must deal with the fact that all of us may already have. The only hope we have of solving this problem is if we work across all boundaries to do so. No one person, one nation one religion can solve this problem.

If humans can do this, we can do anything.

Fantastic post!

After losing so much, hopefully one benefit to come out of the tragedy is people waking up and understanding climate change is real. Climate change is happening now and solutions need to happen.

Good morning Trevor, thank you, this is a site I check every morning, just to keep in touch.

Good post, factsrfun. Breathing easier today, I'm sure. The health of the earth is the overriding factor that determines the success of everything else that we humans do.

good morning BW, perhaps we can move toward a post-racial, post-election America

(but expect me to back off on simple truth)

Christie and Obama did a lot to get their photo ops but they still don't do much about many of the most important issues including even fixing the short term mess. But I have to admit that they aren't as bad as Bloomberg's colossal blunder about trying to keep the marathon on.

Still whether they believe this is related to Climate Change or not we have a major problem with massive pollution that needs to be reversed and that photo op did nothing to change it; quite the opposite if the public bought that crap!

Anytime is a good time to wake up, I guess.

If I may digress from topic a bit, say one thought of god head arising, perhaps from many points, those chosen to add to the greater end might need to be screened.

interstellar travel is unlikely and I doubt the "gods" care enough to brother, that's what climate change is for...

They probably don't.

I'm sure you know what I mean I just fell like chatting; you see we either solve this problem or we fall to the wayside, as the Neanderthals did, if we can’t come together to fix this (and coming together is the only way) we will not advance to the “next stage”.

I was super tired yesterday and could have chatted better. :D

Well, we are now at a point where our disasters are occurring more frequently and so much time and money has been wasted. We can make a little progress here and there but most of our efforts and resources will probably be devoted to the fall outs.

I believe you may be right about that, too bad really, hey here's a funny, Alex Baldwin said you know your party is in trouble when somebody asks "how's the rape guy doing?" and you have to ask "which one?"

As long as it is before the waves roll in over ones head not to recede again afterwards.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

IDK, DKA- They waste too much time on bullshit.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (26439) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Well if they wait for the waves to come in and not recede before wake-up - well then - we will have lost many bullshiters - oh well.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

True.

Well, fuck ya!

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26439) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

lol - ummm - I mean - such a tragedy to lose so many needed and beloved bullshitters - why - oh - why - did they not see it coming.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 1 year ago

Since you put it like that............. :D

Let's start with China. Chinese emissions exceed ours by 50%. There are 1.3 billion people in China, and they all want a Buick or a carbon-belching moped.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6569) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

I agree let's limit the Chinese to no more than 95% per person that the USA emits now and we do that too and apply that standard around the world and dial it back little by little. I think you're on to something.
