Good thing climate change is only a liberal myth.   :lulz:

I really hate to be the pendant here, but individual heat waves are no more evidence for global warming than individual cold snaps are evidence against it.  Climate change is about sustained changes in typical temperature / weather patterns over a long period of time, not single-season temperature changes.

Right; of which this is merely one of the many, many trending examples available globally over the past several years.

It's not that we're stupid; it's just that we might seem that way if you take a post or two outside of the entire rest of the real world and assume we don't know anything about it.

Well, if I were more of a pendant I would point out the slight error in your post.

But I'm not that type.

Global warming is true. But it isn't the end of the world, unfortunately.

"Armageddon" is what greys imagine must be on its way when they begin to realize that reality is weird.

Silly russians drinking on the water requires chairs filled with air
Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit
