We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"...our operating, unchallengeable baseline is that anthropogenic global warming (which we now call “climate change” so as to be more encompassing) is behind every weather phenomenon that has ever happened since we decided that there’s something called anthropogenic global warming. . . . er, climate change.”
Andrew Freedman, science writer, via Bookworm. It's a fascinatingly ahistorical view that weather began in the 1990s. You have to like that "unchallengeable."
"unchallengeable" --> an overt admission we are talking about a faith-based movement, not science. One could term it The Holy Church of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming. Full disclosure: I am a registered "climate denier".
