Just Putting It Out There...

We had our 1st snowfall shortly after Thanksgiving. Usually we're into January before we see snow.
Been like that for years.

I was thinking back to when I was a kid in the '60s.
There was almost always snow on the ground by Thanksgiving, and we
always had a shot at a White Christmas.

As a matter of fact, there were a couple Christmases that it had snowed so much
we didn't leave the house to visit.

You know, there is global warming. But, it ain't caused by man. It is some sort of natural occurrence and happens periodically over geologic time. There is some evidence that the Earth's orbit about the sun changes with time, some sort of cycle over geologic time.

~80 million years ago, what is now Kansas was several hundred feet below water. And it is suspected that it happened millions of years before that.

"The Cretaceous Period is a geologic time designation from 144 to 66 million years ago, when much of central and western Kansas was under water. The relatively deep sea advanced and retreated, leaving behind sandstones and shales of the Lower Cretaceous, such as the Dakota Formation, and the Upper Cretaceous limestones and chalk of the Greenhorn and Niobrara Chalk Formations. Much of the Dakota Formation consists of colorful clay shales, as well as beds of lignite that were used by early pioneers for heating (The Geologic History of Kansas)."

Here are a couple of maps depicting the sea level. A=Obviously, it's all based upon fossil finds.

YEAH! Some day california will not be part of the US.


No matter how the media spins Islam then and now, Sharia Law and our U.S. Constitution are not compatible. Moral relativism and tolerance to the point of ignorance will result in national suicide.

To California they already are not part of the US.

To them the remaining 49 states are mere colonies that need to be controlled, raped and pillaged.

Unfortunately and fortunately

Unfortunately, what political party one belongs to is a stronger factor in people’s beliefs about climate change than is their level of knowledge and understanding about science.

Fortunately, the majority of Americans think protecting the environment and dealing with climate change should be a top priority of Congress and the president.

Fortunately, those climate change deniers (largely Republican) are in the minority, and millennial Republicans are twice as likely to say the earth is warming due to human activity (your old fart minority thinking soon will not matter).

Fortunately, a MAJORITY in other countries see climate change as a major threat.

Fortunately, the more educated people are, the more likely they are to see climate change as a threat.

Unfortunately, the uneducated and politically swayed (you know who you are) keep spreading ignorance.

Well, I guess if the majority of educated people, and especially millenials tell us that we can affect climate change, we should ignore all of the bad science that tells it's so, and the educated climate scientists that tells us it's a natural process, and just believe the majority. Please don't try critical thinking, it will lead you astray ... one must follow the masses or forever be labelled as ignorant by the resident authority on such things.
