*Understanding Global Warming With Quotes
As the huge, carbon dioxide spewing party continues in Paris, the rhetoric and hyperbole spew even more. Yesterday the leader of the free world actually said this when warning of the end of the world… “submerged countries, abandoned cities and fields that no longer grow”. Really, he said that and he is being widely quoted. Really!!!
I have no words to describe the insanity that is coming out of the City of Lights. Many people far smarter than I call bullshit on insanity like that, but they are called deniers, climate deniers, crazy and worse. So, I thought I would do a post of just quotes to describe what is happening with this global warming tomfoolery. I don’t think any of these quotes have anything to do with global warming, but they do send a signal to everyone about what is going on in Paris. Most of these terrific quotes come from beyond the grave. Enjoy and share.
