Honestly; I don't get politics. When people throw left and right around I have no idea which is good and which is bad, here in the UK the two biggest parties are the Conservatives and Labour... if you ask me which is left and which is right, I'd not have a clue!

When 99% of the field of scientists say one thing, you dont listen to those 1% that are crazy loonies, who have probably been paid to say whatever they say.

The overwhelming majority of scientists all believe in gobal warming, thats consensus enough for me.

Thats basically my view on it. I believe there "isnt a single chance" of it being exaggerated. I believe theres alot of greedy people that dont care, eitherway, and its their agenda to push this "there is no gobal warming" agenda.

"When 99% of the field of scientists say one thing"

Where do you get that data from? The people who say that global warming is caused by manking could also be paid to say so. You don't have to pay everyone, just the right people, because the majority won't have the guts to disagree. There's a strong believe, not a consensus.

Authors of seven climate consensus studies.

conclusions:

"Depending on exactly how you measure the expert consensus, it’s somewhere between 90% and 100% that agree humans are responsible for climate change, with most of our studies finding 97% consensus among publishing climate scientists."

"The greater the climate expertise among those surveyed, the higher the consensus on human-caused global warming."

 

Thus:

1) most scientists believe in global warming being man made.

2) the smartest scientists in this field, generally all lean towards it being "man made".

 

 

Its time to get real.

At this point its basically "lying" or borderlineing it, if you say "global warming isnt man made".   If you dont listen to the smartest people on the planet on the issue that do research into it.... what is even the point? You can believe whatever you want, if it makes you feel better.

Those that do it, are typically people that dont care about the enviroment and have vested money intrests in saying so, that is my opinion anyways.

Are you for a soft break, exiting EU, so you might get a easier time, to transition.

or are you for a hard break? cut all ties as soon as possible and damn the consequences it might have to your nation in the short term.

You ll have to make up your mind soon if your going to vote.

Well I voted to stay in the EU, simply because that's the way it's always been since I've been alive (We joined the EU before I was born of course, lol), and I'm not a fan of change... besides, the stuff people were throwing around, in how being in the EU affects us negatively or whatever, I wasn't really listening much, either didn't affect me personally, or just didn't bother me at all... it's all I've known, since it's always been that way. And now we have to leave, I have to pick if it's slow, or if we make it faster... I suppose I'd have to pick slow, so I can at least hold onto what I know for a little longer, and the transition to whatever happens, will be easier on me, right?

I'm a socialist, guild socialist to be exact (for those wo don't know, it's largely about a cooperatively organized economy wherin people and companies performing the same functions bundle together (in guilds), which is overseen (but not directly controlled by) the government, the guilds basically would have a social contract between them, the government and the people).

I identify as a left-rothbardian, individualist anarchist by the way -- most similar to  Lysander Spooner, Samuel Konkin, and Roderick Long. 


I reside in rural New Hampshire and consider myself a fascist, genocidal mad man. Nothing would bring me more pleasure than an outbreak of global, thermonuclear war.
