Have your wife ban fossil fuels like she banded music lyrics!

You will not be remembered as the “inventor” of the internet. You will be remembered as a joke on South Park. You are now the inconvenient truth.

Go home (not to your wife, she left you) Al Gore.

Step one: remove ALL "climate change deniers" from any and all positions of power.

Step two: fill the spots with people of common sense that accept the facts and can work to counter the crisis accordingly.

Plan needs to be engaged, pronto.

Wow! What a refreshing contrast from all the immature dramatics, stupidity, imbecilic word salads, and dysfunction that we get, daily, from Forrest Dumb (Trump)!

I have a completely serious question, would it be too late for Al Gore…or anyone else in fact, to announce a run for the presidency? Or for the democratic ticket.

It’s almost like this channel considers the hate and being made fun of as good as positive comments so they put out a story like this with manbearpig to get views. I guess they cut themselves in order to feel. Sad, pathetic and a joke of journalism

Climate Change

The made up catastrophe used by globalists & socialists to instill fear and guilt to tax, regulate, and remove our freedoms while pretending to be saving the planet.

The liberal socialists want to spend $50,000,000,000,000 to stop the 15% of the carbon that we in the US put into the global environment. Super idea!!!
