I do respect his level of education and memorization of lots of disjointed facts. Just weak on puting them into proper context and applying them correctly.

These grand ideas about how we could sustain civilizations by using only locally sourced foods aren't really practical.. in many areas the climate is too cold to sustain enough quantity and variety of food for such a situation, plus liberals themselves, the cultured ones, are the ones in society who most love to explore the world and have variety in their lives.. good luck getting them to stay stuck in one place eating a very limited variety of foods.

Basically to have all the modern amenities and items cultured liberals have come to enjoy requires use of natural resources... the fancy foods they eat, the jets they use to visit all the countries they visit, all these things require fuel, transportation, etc. EMP burst knocks out the grid for a year and within 6 months half the population is dead.. so no, supporting 30 billion people is not a smart idea, it would be very resource intensive, especially if they are all out there wanting to try every variety of food in existence and visit a different country every 6 months. You think all that flying is good for resource usage?

They preach about resource use and global warming but still use tons of resources for their own personal lifestyles (they are hypocrites who don't practice what they preach but many people of all political affiliations are like this) .. basically if you're out there preaching about global warming but you fly every week and have visited 30 countries, you should just keep quiet.. your lifestyle is not helping the environment so stop trying to tell other people how to live theirs.
So get out of the group. Easy peasy!

Since I live by the ocean and have for 49 of 51 years. (Lived in Iowa for 2 years then moved back) I have yet to see a change in sea level heights. Sea level in 51 years is the same or so small a factor that no one sees the difference. The biggest move should have happened sometime in the past 20 years or when ever Al Gore claimed that the Sea level would increase and wipe out the area I live in. Funny, maybe that is why he bought a home on the coast in the Santa Barbara area, to monitor the sea level. Indisputable: Gore buys Montecito villa - latimes

What a joke this claim that the sea level would rise. Yes it is a total fraud. Then again saying the sky is falling sure has made Mr Gore a rich man. Al Gore Net Worth | Celebrity Net Worth

Don't worry. There are some *actual* scientist working in your area with tools and technology well beyond your non-scientific anecdotal observation.

Natural erosion has nothing to do with the sea level rising. When you talk actual scientist follow the money. Funding comes from those that want a specific outcome. For many years if scientist wanted money they needed to prove an outcome. Who doesn't want funding. Interesting thing is that many scientist have found the exact opposite of what these money following so called scientist have found.

You didn't read the article. If you did you'd know that they're studying both.

Also guess what.... hot off the press:

Trump admits humans have 'some connectivity' on climate change - CNNPolitics.com
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/22/us...ump-visit.html

Donald Trump just did a major u-turn with his view of climate change. He's even considering keeping the US in the Paris Climate Agreement.

So.. what do you think happened here? A Republican President-elect with a Republican Congress and ability to appoint at least one Conservative Supreme Court Justice... he could easily keep going along with the denialism...

But he didn't.

WHY?

Chill, FSB. We're on the same side of this issue. I was trying to disrespect IKB (Incubus Kalamitus Buttux) and his insulting the looks of everybody who disagrees with his pseudoscience.

True, though, what you said. I don't respect ANYTHING. That's what makes me a good scientist - always prodding and poking the known knowns (or what we think they are) to discover through exploration the unknowns (in the eloquent words of Donald Rumsfield).

I am a little fuzzy on your terminology. Is a "bleeding heart type" the same as a liberal? Same as a tree hugger? 'Cause I am a dedicated tree hugger but I think life is cheap and the proper population of the earth is about 1/3 of what it is today.

Wait till the property insurance increases or can't refi/purchase because FEMA has declared your area a flood prone.
The insurance co doesnt care about climate change when it comes to floods.
