One of the most bizarre flicks I’ve seen in a long while. Hilarious, sad, terrifying and refreshing all at once

I felt it dragged at times but as goofy as it is, it's what's happening right now with climate change. The ending was amusing.

A much better, more relevant movie is the 3 part Frontline documentary on Big Oil and climate change. ACC skeptics don't seem to realize that Exxon's scientists discovered we were undergoing climate change 40 years ago and were the premier research group on climate change before Exxon pulled a 180. 31 years later, we've released twice as much carbon into the atmosphere as had been released prior to 1991, we're 1.2 degrees F warmer, and sea-level rise has accelerated to beyond twice what it was in 1991. With continued non-movement on ACC, we're heading for a world of hurt, IMO. Libs had better do a better job on border security because the climate migration problem is gonna get much worse in the future.

Is oil/carbon the real issue, or is it a growing population and population density in areas that shouldn’t have that many people. Fires have always burned in Colorado. Now there are millions of people piled on top of each other. There are skyscrapers and building upon building where there used to be open space.

Everything we are doing to combat climate change will create other issues down the road. Where are we going to dispose of these massive car batteries and wind turbines when they break? Are we really going to tell developing countries that they can’t use the natural resources that we used to push the USA in to prosperity?

The only real way to combat humans impact on the planet is through population control. We do it with animal species all the time. Now we are getting very close to pushing it on humans. The trend of telling people that breeding is irresponsible is growing quickly. Of course, releasing deadly viruses from labs can take care of the problem too.

Overpopulation is the cause of so many environmental and social problems! We have escaped natural population control through advances in medicine, agriculture, and increasing human capability through the industrial revolution powered by fossil fuels. Oddly, Anti-vaxxers may provide the best hope for major population reduction in future pandemics.

People who have lined up for 4 or 5 shots might be right next to them.

Photo's of the identified seashore recovered from early in the 1900's that are compared to recent photo's of the exact same area show no raising of the sea level.

NASA satellite photo analysis of the Earth show MORE green tree coverage of the Earth surface since the first photo's decades ago.

The following President's of the USA have had oceanfront estates still standing.
Brandon; Delaware beach.
Trump; West Palm Beach
Obumma; TWO Estates, Hawaii & Martha's Vineyard.
Bush Family; Multiple homes on Jupiter Island and Kennebunkport, Maine.
JFK; homes on ocean in West Palm Beach and Hyannis port Mass.

Federal govt starts largest fire in New Mexico history, and blames climate change. Seems to happen often.

Still trying to figure out what the govt does well, and why half of our country votes for more govt power at every opportunity.

Similarly, the fed govt started the student loan crisis. They create problems and then want credit for putting out the fires.

Wow, not unexpected from Kitty, but a total dumb ass post. Right now, we have a pandemic of the vaccinated. Every vaxxed and double boosted lib is getting Covid! What a great vaccine. The unvaxxed are living life without fear of Covid and of late the only people getting Covid are the vaxxed and I’ve known a lot of people who have gotten it lately.

Keep getting the death jab! Maybe its long term intended purpose is population reduction since in your mind that will solve so many fake problems. No climate change in Ireland as it isn’t going to reach 60 on May 31st! Again!

On Sunday afternoon Mary Anne got a cough and a mildly elevated temp, on Monday morning she took a Covit test from CVS Pharmacy ( $ !0) and tested positive for an unknown covid virus. The NEXT day the temp went back to normal. I then got the same symptoms on Tuesday, but milder.

She spoke to our Internist and took some flu type pills. We both are rapidly recovering from flu like symptoms
