    I see what you mean.

    If you look at a graph, you can see that it goes up and down alot. You get a wet year, then a couple of dry years... and then you get fires.

    But if you're looking at all the man-made climate theories, then the huge amount of CO2 put into the atmosphere, then the fires should be smaller, having less oxygen to breathe. And then, it also makes sense, because more CO2 means more plantlife, and more fire food.

    You could argue in circles about this, and it's all speculation.

    Or you could post more news of tragedy, and think that this somehow furthers the man-made argument... not having a single original thought (or even the understanding of unoriginal thoughts), it seems this is the path some will take.

    The Science Journal 2017 states that global warming and climate change will intensify regional inequality in the United States based on an exhaustive new economic study of the phenomenon. Essentially climate change is transferring wealth from poor counties in the the Southeast and Midwest to well off communities in the Northeast and on the coasts.

    The study simulates the costs of global warming by modelling every day of weather in every US county during the 21st century. The study finds enormous disparities in how rising temperatures will affect American communities. Texas, Florida and the deep south will bleed income in the broiling heat while come chillier northern states will gain moderate benefits.

    Across the country's southern half and especially in states that border the Gulf of Mexico climate change could impose the the equivalent of a 20% tax on county level income. Harvests will dwindle, summer energy costs will soar, rising sea levels will erase real estate holdings and heatwaves will set off epidemics of cardiac and pulmonary disease.

    New England, the Pacific Northwest and the Great lakes States may all prosper as growing seasons lengthen and the number of frigid deadly winter days decrease.

    The Science paper is the first product of the the Climate Impact Lab, a 25 person consortium of economists and policy experts. This study attempts to make a global assessment of the economic cost of human caused climate change.

    Congress and other government groups here in the states are constantly pressured by activist groups ( PITA - greenpeace ect ) Those aforementioned groups are the tree huggers. Depending on how much money is thrown at the governing groups will depend on how the government reacts. I not sure how things work in Cannuck land .. but here in the states there are far too many dirty politicians that will sell their souls for the $$$.
    This is why ( and some throughout the world can't grasp this ) President Trump was put in power. He can't be bought and by his actions ( donating his salary ) he has proven just that. But you always have the greedy people ( yes left and right ) that see their "golden calf " being led away and they are scared they will lose it forever.

    I would point out also, that the election was an act of desperation. A lot of us thought of this as a last chance... not for 'conservatism' per se, but for the American way of life.

    Since then, the dynamics have changed.

    At one time, people were holding their noses to vote. At this point, many of those people, myself included, love the man. Every time he 'slips up,' we cheer. Every time he ticks off the left, his following gets bigger. My prediction is that the next election is going to be a landslide.

    Roy was flawed WAY before the sexual shit started... if you noticed Trump really didn't stump for the man until the last few days.. and that was ONLY to keep the seat RED.

    Moore had way too many problems and really was WAY far right ( even for me ) but when you spend 20 million to discredit your opponent and bring out false claiming bimbos it's kinda hard to over come.

    If trump was any kind of a man he would have told moore to step down. All he was concerned about was keeping a rep seat, disgraceful.

    You seem to think that every scandal on the right is contrived, and every scandal on the left is true. The law of averages says that this is impossible.
    Whether moore is guilty or not, there should be an investigation.

    sure let's waste more taxpayer $$$ it's not like Obama didn't double the debt for the USA in 8 years... thank Trump... he's already dropped it 1.5 trilling in lass than one year.

    60 times since he took office the Stock Market has hit all time highs.

    took us from a 1.2 - 1.4 GDP to a 3.4 the last quarter...

    more people back in the work force and off food stamps...

    and now looks like we WILL have a tax reform plan before CHRISTmas!

    yeah he sucks LOMFL

    The last couple of responses are about politics and not climate change.

    At any rate, the reason why Roy Moore lost is because of changing demographics. White, "conservative" Christians are no longer the majority across the USA. 97% of African Americans in Alabama, compromising 29% of the total electoral votes, voted against Roy Moore.

    In cities with more than 50,000 people, Doug Jones took 71% of the votes. The Republican party now largely appeals to mostly rural less populated ares.

    66% of women with children (20% of the electorate) voted against Roy Moore.


    As far as the tax reforms go, the benefits mostly will go to corporations and the rich but not to middle class photocopier technicians while adding one trillion dollars to the national debt for future generations to pay.

    Where is the Republican "Tea Party" now who were so obstructionist against the Obama administration over increasing the national debt? They appear to be hypocrites.

    The reason while the national debt increased under President Obama was because of the financial disaster handed to him by the previous Bush/ Republican administration.
