#1 Pubs face pressure over green new deal? Really?

Neither party is facing pressure or even seems concerned about the typhus outbreak in LA because of the garbage. Garbage > rats > fleas > typhus.

#4 I've an alternative Green plan - worry about excess CO2, grow corrals in aquarium.

#5 A new study found "oases" of resilient coral reefs around the world that are beating the odds against warming, pollution, and other impacts.

Put another way, just like the polar bears and the polar ice caps, the coral reefs are doing fine.

#6 My point was, corrals - unlike plants - take CO2 from circulation permanently.

#11 Republican Green Plan: Let people keep their own money.

Like that guy says, "But where is the graft in that?"

I kinda sorta like the idea of trans-oceanic trains. But they should be submarine trains so we don't have to build elevated trestles in those places where the ocean is miles deep.

#12 Just because they made up stupid to do does not mean you should try to stupid too.

#13 Alternative plan = nuclear power

Force the liberals to explain that getting rid of cars and planes and giving total government control is better than the risks of carbon emission free and plentiful nuclear power (risks that the US navy, France, and others have managed without a problem for decades).

#14 The only reason to worry about CO2 is that there isn't enough of it. Seriously. At 150ppm, the BIOSPHERE DIES. You know, all the plants and stuff like that. It dies. 180ppm was the low when the megafauna died off, most of the complex plants died out. ALL of our plants evolved in atmospheres with 2000+ ppm CO2. Reducing CO2 in the atmosphere is NOT the goal if you want a healthy, growing planet. Avg CO2 in the past was 1500+ ppm. The level we are at now is ABNORMAL and BAD. There's a reason why greenhouses pump in extra CO2. The only warming effect we are having is heat islands around our cities. Lowering CO2 will not save the planet, it will kill off life on it.

#15 OK. Alternative plan is free market capitalism, laissez faire economics, equal protection under the law and dismantling of the regulatory state.

#16 #14 -- Maybe, but will it get Democrats elected?

#18 "Your coral-and-plankton aquarium
Needs whales, and a whale necessarium,
And of course a great tomb,
One with plenty of room,
In the desert somewhere for to bury 'em."

And that's just for starters.

#19 The sandhog was stunned. "Sancta Mater,
They're building an El underwater!
'Tis certain disaster.
The paint and the plaster
Will make of the fishies a slaughter."
