Again with human nature, we lack foresight. Imagine if we had the ability to plan for problems that will happen beyond our time?

They are a completely disgraced rag these days. They've been caught red handed making stuff up and printing it as fact. Now they print some tripe about the citizens of the United States not based on anything but political agenda.


In this case it's a broad based negative generalization against 166,400,000 people. Can't believe anyone would believe that.

Frankly I have no F's to give regarding what the world thinks....On the other hand, no one I know denies the climate is changing. They do say things like we the people of the US should not be taxed to death to fix it and change our habits while other countries crap on the environment...

I still to this day have no idea why Leftists say people deny climate change. Nobody denies that it changes. We deny that it is such a burning emergency as Leftists claim it is and that humans are the cause and that money and taxes will fix it.

Honestly don’t see any good change happening. Human’s only change when something is immediate. Our nature doesn’t allow us to think long term, especially when it comes to thinking of future generations. Our kids and their kids will pay.

Its all of our fault. Even liberals have blood on their hands..
Dude relax, we aren't capable of "breaking the planet". The planet will shake us off like fleas when it feels it's time to do so and it will go on for millennium without us just fine. The hubris of humans is hysterical, we are so insignificant in the big picture. Like a grain of sand in all the beaches in the world.

I guess americans are smarter than our European counterparts, or at least better able to filter our propaganda and socialist dogma.
