Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A new tool compares what the climate of towns will be in 2080 to various locations today If global greenhouse gas emissions don't decline soon, the climate in Washington, D.C., could more closely resemble that of today's Greenwood, Miss. Summers may be slightly drier and more than 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than they are today.

"That's according to a new climate mapping project by researchers Matthew Fitzpatrick of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science and Robert Dunn of North Carolina State University.

The project is designed to illustrate how U.S. cities will change over the next 60 years and determine which present-day climates serve as the best representations, or "analogs," for what they will become.

It's a way to show the public how familiar places -- including their home cities -- might change as the climate continues to warm, in a manner "we hope resonates better with people" than less personal forms of climate communication, Fitzpatrick said."

Dallas basically become New Orleans, 8.5 degrees hotter and 133 percent wetter.

Miami and NYC are definitely worth the time to watch.

(and Miami's problem is not that it has been built on a sandbar as some here have asserted....)

I was at the dentist today to have my teeth cleaned.

For the record, I got a gold star for home care. :)

But while I was in the waiting room, I partook of the magazines available. I always try to arrive early because the magazines are good.

So I read an article in Scientific American about global warming.

The article is not yet available online because it is the current issue.

Here's the preview...

Wow.

It's a ~how long can you tread water~ type of thing.....

That is funny. The tool is a computer that was programed by a idiot that believes in man caused global warming.

The typical summer in Mendota Heights, Minnesota is 10°F (5.5°C) warmer and 28.7% wetter than summer in Edmonton.

That actually sounds pretty appealing to me.

What's funnier is you pretending your ignorant view that human actions have no consequences are equal to the facts revealed by many thousands of man hours of study on the topic.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge. - Isaac Asimov

SNIPER is a deacon in the cult

"nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

In Trump terms:
There were good people on both sides.

Are we talking climate or strippers now?

If we were talking strippers Dallas would become Tampa Bay where one strip club spent $2 million in preparation for the Republican National Convention

The "tool" is you.

And it's now called "Global Waming" by your dear leader.

Hi Sniper, I see you're rehashing your usual "points". For you, love:

"A reliable way to tell that one side of a debate lacks intellectual honesty is that they continue to spread the same misinformation after they have been corrected. Scientists debate, but when one side presents evidence to support their position, the other side must account for it.

If the information is valid and rigorous, then the only intellectually honest thing to do is to change your position. This does not necessarily mean completely flipping to the other school of thought, but at the very least the debate must evolve when legitimate points are made and new evidence is brought to bear.

However, debates with pseudo-scientists or science deniers do not evolve that way. The deniers raise the same points over and over, regardless of how many times they are thoroughly debunked. This puts us in the position of swatting down the same false claims over and over, but it must be done to keep the misinformation at bay."

I'd respond and destroy your argument, but you always run away from every thread after one stupid comment because you lack the brainpower to debate anyone.

That wasn't for all conservatives. That was for you. You pop up on a thread, say something hateful or ignorant, then run away. Been doing it for years.

Case in point.
