The march in Detroit was Saturday not yesterday. Oops.

The only agenda that I have is a fond hope that the climate will be a livable one for my granddaughters. This has been the hottest April on record and I hardly think that the weather has been a normal average of late YMMV. I do know that they will have to leave Florida while it is still above water. Parts of Miami Beach are already flooding at high tide. Fortunately they are in West Palm Beach

Be kind to our Earth it is not Uranus

You were told to go fuck yourself, of course, not because you expressed an opinion. You are perfectly aware of this. You are just affecting a pose of an innocent victim. Striking a pose in insincere and dishonest. If you spoke more honestly more often, you might get along with people better.

Now, under what theory of motivation would I decide to spare you anything? Because you ask me to?

Liar, folks like you don't GO to science centers. You don't believe in science remember?

When speaking to climate change "true believers", I'm sometimes reminded of the movie "Miracle on 34th Street". You know, the movie where everyone knows that the premise that there is a Santa Clause is BS, but during the trial the defense is bailed out because the Post Office decides to send letters that kids wrote to Santa to the courthouse. The judge rules that there must be a Santa Clause because the letters being forwarded by the USPS were "proof enough."

That's about the same quality of the "facts" that support the climate change argument. That, plus ample evidence that folks involved in spreading this propaganda are known to fudge that data.

But you go ahead and believe in Santa if you want.

Ah, so it was a"qualified" expression of "go fuck yourself." Sorry if I didn't read all that nuance into it when you to me to "go fuck yourself". Next time, I'll try to read your "go fuck yourself" messages a bit more carefully.

Wow, you're truly a nutjob, aren't you? Looks like Lyin' Trump hasn't gotten around to shutting down the facts on NASA's climate site yet. The consensus of virtually all real climate scientists worldwide is without doubt, no matter what Fox "News" may tell you.
