Why are the kids winning in these lawsuits - not just in the US?

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-climate-change-permafrost-idUSKCN1TJ1XN

The Canadian permafrost is melting far earlie than anybody projected.

Here's an idea...what about Al Gore stops flying around the world [oh all those carbon emissions] lecturing on climate change.
Also, the school kiddy climate change protesters be banned from having heaters, airconditioners, dryers, hair dryers, gas-guzzling cars driving them to school, phone battery chargers, flying off/being driven on holidays etc etc etc.
...for starters.
Then we old folks might join the choir.

Your bullshit is no less stinky than Kiiid's.

Why not make your decision on the merits, rather than based on Al Gore's travel? Oh, wait - it's because Al Goe's travel is just a convenient rock to throw, not something that really influences you.

It's like when the liberals propose spending money on something and the GOP comes back with "but what about all the homeless people?" They don't care about the homeless, just the scoreboard. "Gotcha!" they cry out.

Besides being a Democrat and not Trump, what's the case for Biden? 

All I can come up with is that he was Obama's buddy and isn't as radical as many of the other Dems running.  Is it solely electability (more or less name recognition, at this point)?

But what is the affirmative case for Biden and what he would do?

He can win. There's the case. In a nutshell.

That's the case, but I think it is dead wrong.

His comments about (and ongoing pride in) his work with the segregationists will lose him too many progressives and too many Black and Hispanic voters to be able to beat Trump - but I think it will also preclude his getting the nomination.

You should get out more. Talk to real people, instead of the fellow ivory tower cellmates. Nobody wants Ms. Warren, but the left. The left doesn't win. The center wins.. The center holds.. you have to think about the whole country, Joshie, not just the folks down at the village Green.

Desperate Booker, Warren, and DeBlahzeeoh! Go after Joe. Why? Because he was able to work with the opposition.

https://www.npr.org/2019/06/19/734103488/democrats-blast-biden-for-recalling-civil-relationship-with-segregationists

Hmmmm. Maybe, just maybe, that's how you get things done, dummies!

Poor Joe. Too old. Too dumb. Too secict. Too white. Not woke!

And leading all the polls.

"Kick 'em, when they're up, kick 'em, when they're down...we love dirty laundry."

What do you expect to get done in the Senate?

McConnell doesn’t give a shit about anything but the acquisition and accumulation of power. He is nakedly partisan and would the country to the ground before giving any Democrat anything.

If you go by the polls from this time in 2007 the 2008 election would have been between Hillary and Rudy...

Joe Biden is like a favorite cardigan; comfortable, familiar but a bit thread worn and if you wear it everyday it’s gonna fray and come apart.

Joe will be fine... for a while.

And Booker is a fucking idiot. Reparations? Talk about perpetuating victimhood.

Fuck you and your bullshit victimhood. The only hood in here is on your pointy little head.

Lewindowski or Hicks, it’s easy to mistake one invertebrate leach for another especially with all the smoke and all the fire billowing from their rolling crime spree.

Piggy, your opinions of my life continue to be of zero merit.

Your logic about Biden is similarly askew.

And your discussion of Warren is duly noted, but totally moot to what I am saying about Biden - raised presumably because you had nothing to say about Biden at all, let alone in regard to what I wrote.

In other words, you are full of crap and should go buy a clue.

Listening to the Trump administration's lawyer trying to defend the position that "Safe and Sanitary" does not necessarily require them to provide toothpaste, soap, or blankets is very painful.

It would be high theater, were it not children's lives at issue.

If you want to see it in context, here is the hour it's within:

So Utley fell off the wagon... again.

No one does victimhood better than white people. That’s what Trump ran on.




Conservative historian John Lukacs makes clear how different the nationalist formula is from patriotism properly so called: it rests not on a sense of pride in place or background but in an intense sense of victimization.
The cry of the genuine patriot is “Leave us alone to be the people we have always been.”The populist nationalist cries, “We have been cheated of our birthright, and the Leader will give it back.”

You think the center won for Obama?

He didn’t get the majority of white voters in either election.

Warren is probably going to become the front runner in a couple months and I expect the same energy that fueled the blue wave will prevail. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Warren and Harris be last ones standing.

Al Gore preaches...in Brisbane, Queensland state, Australia recently;


https://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/al-gore-warns-india-wont-want-to-buy-coal-from-carmichael-mine/news-story/3cea4a049955b8c2d5677981dbf5c1c1

Al Gore warns India won’t want to buy coal from Carmichael mine

Former US vice president Al Gore says Queensland could be left with a multibillion-dollar “hole in the ground” as the Adani mine edges closer to approval.

Al Gore speaking at the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in South Brisbane. Pic Mark Cranitch.

During a two-hour power point presentation, Mr Gore spoke about India’s “new electricity generated capacity”, stating 65 per cent of which came from solar and wind in 2018.
He also said 225GW of solar was under construction in India.

“They’re not gonna continue with coal,” he said.
“You wanna sell coal to India, good luck.”

“Financial institutions, a lot of them have announced they’re not going finance this anymore,” Mr Gore said.
“That’s one of the reasons why not a single global financial institution after doing the financial analysis would put any money up for the Adani mine.

“Not a single one of them.
“That’s why it looks like none of the insurance companies will do it either.

“But again, it’s not for me to get into this.
“In the US, we’ve been down this road and may I just say this is nuts.”


#####

What's nuts is thinking that India can be powered without coal-fired power stations, now.
Or that Australia can be powered by renewables, now.

Aussie does want to sell coal to India...and Mr Adani wants to buy it.

What Al doesn't understand is..."Everything is political".

The federal Labor party leftist Opposition, who thought it was going to romp to power at the recent federal election, a la HRC in 2016...got its butt kicked in Qld state.
Qld Premier, the lovely Leftist Labor Anastasia, was against "Adani" [coal mine] before the election...but after having seen what the voters in Qld thought of 'climate change' and its devotees in the federal election, and she facing a state election next year...rushed to approve the mine.
'Adani'... approved.
On my tv were shown people in poor parts of India switching on tv sets etc, having electricity for the first time...thanks to coal.

Anyway, if the mine doesn't work out...Aussie will use the coal for himself [who cares about the gender war].
Appears federal govt will be building one or two coal-fired power stations in Australia...it's what Conservative voters want.

Bituminous me!

Bambi, renewables are much cheaper to build and bring online than coal plants.   Wind, in particular, requires relatively low capital outlay.   A commercial turbine costs a million to put up.  A coal plant runs around 1.5 to 2 billion.   Per megawatt, new coal plants are running at 3 -5 times the cost of wind.  That says "dying industry" pretty definitively.
