  1. Trump thinks Carbon Dioxide is the main building block of all life!.. Correction, Trump is a carbon dioxide based life form. 😀😂🤣

  2. Notice that Koch industries isn't explicitly mentioned, even though they've made billions off destroying the earth for personal profit. Oh, I guess the Bush family did, too. Ask Jenna. She works at MSNBC.

  3. The GOP are always the slowest kids in the class. And somehow, they've bullied themselves into power to protect their donors. Would love to think the GOP is finally going to lift a finger for the earth, but it's more likely a false ploy for the 2020 election.

  4. ChiComs are the biggest CO2 emitters on the planet .. but MSNBCannibals want the USA to bear the manufactured burden so all the Industry remians or goes to CHINA

  5. China follows no enivronmental policies that MSNBCannibals suggest because MSNBCannibals want to collapse the US economy and create a MSNBCannibal Holocaust in the USA

  6. What we need is World Electricity Network like internet today. That way we can send solar electricity from one continent to another. When is dark in US, we in EU send you our solar electricity and vice versa. Lon to NY, Tokyo to LA, south to north, west to east 24/7 365 days. High voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission is not new thing. China for example have today link of 2000miles 12GW.

    We can do it!

  7. Climate criers want to control peoples’ lives and diminish their liberties. That is the politics of climate change.

  8. To the people with money and no imagination.. we need electric hovering cars so plants can take back the roads, plant trees, and a solar powered world and we can put this stupid tiny man made problem behind us.

  9. Look at the "hockey-stick" graph. It shot straight up almost a hundred years ago, with much less fossil fuels burned then than now. Only a complete cessation of fossil fuel burning would even begin to make a difference. We are already f**ked in any case.😥 Sad, but true.

  10. The climate faithful need to stop using fossil fuels…the HYPOCRITES. None of their goals will be met, it is all a wild leftist fantasy.

  11. The thousands of scientists who can prove that man did not cause global warming their voices are muted by the media they are ridiculed fired and even worse.

  12. 3 simple questions to ask yourself if you're a denier:
    1. Are carbon dioxide and methane greenhouse gases?
    2. Do we emit a crap-ton of carbon and methane as humans?
    3. Then what's your problem?
    Yes, I know the Earth's climate has always changed, it changed in conjunction with those greenhouse gasses being emitted naturally, which is still happening.
    Here's the important part: We are accelerating the rate at which the climate changes.

  13. Electric vehicles batteries don't last but 2 to 3 years they're powered by coal fired plants at a reduced efficiency because the power is transferred over power lines. Electric cars are horrible. To get the lithium hundreds of thousands of acres of forest are destroyed to strip mine for lithium. Way worse than standard coal mining that can be done underground without harming forests.

  14. No human can control the weather. It doesn't matter if you do dances, sacrifice goats or pray to Lord Xeno. Silly progressives.

  15. Ruhle asked where it does the denial and refusal to act come from. CORRUPTION! You have to get money out of politics for real change. Call it what it is corruption. The GOP gets a significant amount of its funding from the oil and gas industry and surprise they side with the oil and gas industry. I don't know why the MSM is so slow to call out the corrupt campaign finance system we have here in America.

  16. Climate change solution is simple.
    "Act, adapt or die"
    If not then "just lay down and accept the apocalypse as you wait for the four horsemen to pass by and put you to rest in the most painful way within their capability."

    Doing nothing is not an option anymore.

  17. Climate change? It occurs naturally and the fact is we are on the uptick side of the next Ice Age that we are living in if any of the idiots on the left care to google. All of science knows we are living in an ice age, google it, and idiots are worried about global warming? Who knows what the future holds but there are alot more natural climate change events that worry me more than the current debatable either way global warming propaganda. If an Ice Age actually comes I guess our taxes will be raised to stop it? LMAO, idiots!

  18. Politics don’t matter. They’re in it for they’re own egos. Defeatist mentality aside, lies tell the truth.

    Have the balls to write law. No more waiting. Industry has known ALL of this for years. Go ahead in deny everything. It’s in your mission statement.

    “Now that the economy is good we can now focus on these things.”, get used to be being curbed-stomped now that you’re 43 years too late. “You might as well have said “ I’ll fight to save you as long as I can turn a prophet.” “It’ll be worth my while to save the planet now that I can afford to exploit you”

    👏👏 for coming in last. Good luck getting a dime out of the pile of corpses you leave behind because you weren’t willing to put your wallet on the line for your fellow man even at a time when you were young enough to not care about such things.

    Same mentality, year after year. I’ll take on anyone in a fist fight, even though I’ll lose, just to prove you’re willing to fight for your selfish ways. Should I win the day… your punishment will simply be to reach another land, by land, after you walk into the ocean and come out simply “stinky” on the other shore.
