I didn't know that. Sort of like Newark Airport and why during the summer KEWR is almost almost about 4F above Central Park, KNYC? Obviously it was a hot pattern, but weather happens.

Climate change doesn't care if you believe it or not it is here. Perhaps your hero Comrade Trump will find a way for you to eat coal and oil.

That's why birds are not airborne unless flapping their wings.
I forgot the “/s”

Do you think in a million years that adding a carbon tax will change any of that?

Only if the revenue made today from the tax went towards greener solutions and the science can show that greener will divert environmental disasters.

I've always said and I know I'm not alone ... if the government can figure out how to tax us for breathing, they will ...

Ask a scientist: Why do we breathe out carbon dioxide?

People know the planet is changing, surely that is not what is up for debate but rather ... should we be taxed, because the planet it changing? Give the government a minute, they will figure it out, as this is where this is headed, I'm sure.

Actually... it will be trillions of years before the Sun becomes a cold dead rock.

Good example of the fallacy of inductive reasoning.

If a small group of mammals can fly, this does not mean gravity does not exist. Hence if a small area has an extremely cold temperature, this does not mean global warming does not exist.
