“There has been no significant rainfall for almost two months in Western, Central and Southern Europe. And the dry period is expected to continue in what experts say could be the worst drought in 500 years

Climate change is exacerbating conditions as hotter temperatures speed up evaporation, thirsty plants take in more moisture and reduced snowfall in the winter limits supplies of fresh water available for irrigation in the summer. Europe isn't alone in the crisis, with drought conditions also reported in East Africa, the western United States and northern Mexico.”


Nah, there’s no global warming.

But, but, but... that White Paper written by that meteorologist published on 'What's Up With That' clearly proves that Climate Change is not real. So there!

Pray tell, what exactly do you think would change this? Buy an electric car?

First we need the loudmouth climate change deniers to just STFU so that we can all work TOGETHER to come up with ways to solve the problem.
Some of us use common sense!

Yes, the “common sense” dodge is quite prevalent among deniers. All it really shows is a disdain for actual science. Are you proud of that?
Just tell us, what can we do to change this? Everyone is so vague, and silly thinking that there is going to be some global unity and fight the universe.

The head of the Thames river has dried up and is now much further downstream

Short term not much, lots of things over the long term.

Until you get the world onboard it will always be short term. The short term will suck $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ out of the players and only make certain people like Al Gore boat loads of money. They target the feel gooder do gooders that think they are going to save the world.

A good start. Well, would have been in the 90s had the denier spin machine not reined in the gullible. Now it seems that it's late in the ballgame, but still, a step in the right direction.

Like what? Climate change is not real? I thought we were at least over that with most.
There is always a change in climate. Sure it is real, just won't be able to change it.

I'm so god-damned sick of that ridiculous talking point, I could puke.

If you think that the highest level of CO2 EVER in our atmosphere has zero to do with the climate change and patterns we're seeing today then common sense and keep observation are not your strong suits. Sure climate has historically changed but never ever, ever, ever, ever, as fast as the last 100 years. Not even close. And that is the anomaly; THAT is the difference. So take your talking point and stick it in the useless as tits on a bull bin.

So, what are YOU going to do about it? What?
