    .

    An estimated 61-80,000 Americans died and 800,000 were hospitalised in the 2017-18 flu season, including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    I don't live in my mom's basement. It is a lovely place, though, usually used for family gatherings. I wish that I was in it today. Sadly, COVID restrictions prevent us from celebrating Thanksgiving in person. Your burns are so fucking weak, man. You're pathetic.

    Don't worry about Diesel. He's just another member of the Asshole Legion. Personally, I think he's a POE since he's doing far more damage to Democrats than any Trump fan can do.

    I don't know how many houses Kerry has. I never pretended to have more than he has. I am confident, however, that he is far richer than I am. I'm not sure why you're projecting your own insecurity and failed life potential on me. If you want to discuss a topic, do it. If you just want to lazily insult my personal accomplishments and engage in personal attacks, then you can go fuck yourself, you fake Christian.

    You're right. I was drinking on an airplane yesterday and smacking down the many, many morons on this website. I didn't need to be a dick to you. Sorry about that; and I'm also glad we agree.

    At least I have discernable positions. You're just a waffling pansy who doesn't have any spine or integrity. Yours was a wasted life.

    That's normal.

    There are a few Democrats in the plains states who similarly don't feel as though they're represented by their Republican senators, I would imagine.
    Larger cities in the South have black Democratic mayors and reps in the House, but there aren't enough of them statewide to have Democratic Senators.

    Kerry and Kennedy didn't win their seats unanimously, of course, but they won them pretty decisively.
    If they stuffed Ted instead of burying him, he might still be Senator, although in his absence, Liz is quite popular.
    But again, understandably, probably not with you.

    Talking about a 'climate policy' requires NO education. Fascism is illegal in the United States. You don't get to dictate energy markets.

    Invalid. You can't define 'global warming' using buzzwords like 'long term', 'climate system', or 'pre-industrial'.

    It is not possible to trap heat. Heat has no temperature. Heat is the flow of thermal energy. It is not possible to trap thermal energy. There is always heat.

    So the undefined buzzword 'climate change' is the same as the undefined buzzword 'global warming'?

    Define 'warming'. From when to when? Why are those two points in time significant? Why are any other two points in time NOT significant? Buzzword fallacy.

    You can't define 'global warming' as 'global warming'. Circular definition. Try again. It is also not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth. We don't have anywhere near enough thermometers to do that.
    Quote Originally Posted by Diesel View Post

    Define 'long term'. Climate is defined as 'long term' weather by several dictionaries. To define a 'change', you have to have a quantitative value. What is the unit of measure of 'climate'?
    Quote Originally Posted by Diesel View Post

    Not a quantitative value. You can't average a non-quantity.
    Quote Originally Posted by Diesel View Post

    There is no global climate. Earth has many climates. There are desert climate, marine climate, alpine climate, arctic climate, etc. These are subjective descriptions. They contain no quantity. Nothing changes. A desert climate is still a desert climate, A marine climate is still a marine climate. There is no change in these descriptions.
    Quote Originally Posted by Diesel View Post
    These changes have a broad range of observed effects that are synonymous with the term.
    Buzzword fallacies. What quantity is changing?
    Quote Originally Posted by Diesel View Post

    No, they do not. TV weatherman do, but meteorologists do not. They do not describe 'repeating weather' at all.
