All the news channels do this,if your bent too far one way you wont see it.
yes one american news is pretty good definitely a conservative slant but their info is accurate and well presented. I feel npr is the same just on the liberal side.I've been watching One America News network, and enjoying their pseudo-Euro format. More news, less opinion. Occasional history lessons as transitional pieces.
Simple research helps me determine if a story is true or not. I am not a scientist, so I believe the overwhelming science community when they say it is real. I can read the charts and measurements posted on reputable sites like NOAA. Over the years, I have read the counter arguments, but they usually rely on a misrepresentation of data or some weird event theory - it falls apart on closer scrutiny and then another crazy talking point is created to keep the argument going. They are trying to run out the clock on the debate until we reach the point when the general consensus is going to be "it's too late to do anything about it so why change." Unfortunately, it's working. Any body here know about the Dunning Kruger effect that is being talked about lately?
Were more than 6 times the avg. rainfall for July . June was above avg too. Seeing heavier and more often downpours than usual.I was wondering yesterday how much impact the air's capacity to hold water versus its temperature would have on surface and ground waters? That is, as overall temps increase more water is held in the atmosphere.
Our Govt and most of those in charge are guilty of being short sighted. Climate change is a perfect example. but it soaks into all things. We can make a long list of things promoted by both sides that are simply unsustainable. And things that cannot continue eventually do not. Where is the green party?
Global coal and gas energy production are unsustainable at current rates. Soil depletion by large scale, chemical based agribiz probably fits under this category too.I'm lost. Can we get some examples of equivalently non-sustainable things....ideas promulgated by different parties or other vested interests, that will destroy the biosphere in < 100 years??
Many things are said to be unsustainable **economically**, but I am yet to see an economic issue that didn't have at least 4 completely different sets of opinions....all which make a good case.
