By Mark Tracey You are brainwashed, there is ample evidence that the climate has changed over the millennia, all completely natural.
Where I sit at this moment was once covered by a mile thick ice pack, all that ice melted without human interaction. Or the dinosaurs that lived in once tropical Montana, does that not constitute climate change as a mater of natural history?
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman you miss the point it has changed in the past
no one denies that
but pay attention this isnt normal change
its to fast and there is direct co relation to man made forces like carbon emissions if you would study the data as i have and i'm not an expert in the field i have a graduate degree in political science and law school education but i understand learning and the scientific method and deference to be paid to men and women in the field..there is irrefutable evidence this increase is directedly co related to increases in carbon emissions its irrefutable and if you would look at the data objectively youd realize how foolish you are being you refuse to see it because this once again contradicts your whole world view whcih is by the way also ass backwards.. and that also is proven by the facts
Picture?type=square
By Mark Tracey Having studied data on the subject as well, I would say the data is not irrefutable and all of the counter arguments have been ignored or thrown out without serious consideration.
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman then no you have not studied the real data
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris Wrong, many who have studied the real data say it is inconclusive.
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman no one who is a serious expert in the field just crack pot deniers all rational people agree this is fact

By Kirby Liberty Harris You keep believing that propaganda.
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman You seem confused, some one has to create that "propaganda" there are those that influence and those that are influenced you dont know who i am or what i represent do you
let me ask you a very important question is propaganda always untrue? or is the word propaganda a word you use to rationalize your denial of scientific facts?
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris There are many serious experts in the field who deny climate change is man made or say it is unclear. There are whole lists. Look it up. Propaganda as I use it means lies to foll people.
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman there is not one serious scientist that doubts it not one
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris Sure there are. There are many serious scientists from many excellent colleges and organizations. You can find the lists of them. There is a small one on Wikipedia. Most of them believe in climate change, but not that it is man made or not decided.

By Kirby Liberty Harris Rather climate change is real or not, the Feds have no authority from the Constitution to do anything about it. Want the government to do something about it? Then amend the Constitution.
Picture?type=square
By William Dykeman it is real and it is man made, and i'm pretty sure being a matter of national security it is in the perview of the constituion if we can have national parks that are constituional then so are environamental regulaions this isue was settled long ago by the supreme courtyou are a crack pot no one cares what delusions you possess a bout a long obsolete view of a dead constituioon, the constituion is very much alive and breathing

By William Dykeman A constitutional amendment would overturn the presumption in federal environmental statutes that the primary responsibility for environmental protection lies with the states. The Constitution's Commerce Clause gives the federal and state governments all the authority needed to protect the environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION AND THE CONSTITUTION
Indirectly, at least, the Constitution provides the federal government with power to regulate on behalf of environmental quality, but it also sets limits on the power. It sets limits, likewise, on the regulatory power of the states. What it does not do, at present, is grant the "constitutional right to a clean environment" so avidly sought in the heyday of environmental concern, the decade of the 1970s. Thus, the one unique aspect of the general topic considered here has no doctrinal standing; the remaining aspects are matters of doctrine, but they are not unique to environmental regulation. It is quite sufficient, then, merely to illustrate the wide range of constitutional issues that arise in the context of environmental regulation, and to suggest the nature of the debate on the question of a constitutional right to an environment of good quality.

https://www.encyclopedia.com/politics/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/environmental-regulation-and-constitution

Other powers relevant to environmental regulation include the taxing power, which presumably would authorize effluent and emission fees to control pollution; perhaps the admiralty power, as a basis for controlling pollution from ships; and the power to approve interstate compacts, as an indirect means by which to impose federal environmental standards on compacting states, as the Court suggested in West Virginia ex rel. Dyer v. Sims (1951), involving a compact among eight states to control pollution in the Ohio River system. And the Supreme Court may draw on its original jurisdiction to shape a federal common law of pollution in suits between states or between a state and the citizens of another state.

By William Dykeman ypour world view was dismess long ago and has not been taken seriously since the later years of the 19th century.. you should do what i did 30 years ago go to school a law school and study constituional law
you really aren educated enough to even have a proper opinin on what the constituion means
you live in an imaginary past owlrd that really nver even existed
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris LOL, you are so funny. The climate changing is part of nature and man has no global effect on it, at least no global effect that has been proven. Yes, there are local effects and effects that harm humans locally, but nothing worldwide.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris The Constitution is not living, as far as us interpreting it in new ways. It is ONLY living when we amend it. And I are very educated in the Constitution. I study many originality Constitutional scholars, a great one being expert being Judge Nap. And a good friend Floyd Bayne.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris I am not for an amendment giving the authority to the Feds, something it does NOT do now. I am just saying IF you want the Feds to have the authority, then you need to amend it to give the Feds that authority.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris The Constitution's Commerce Clause does NOT give the federal and state governments any authority needed to protect the environment. The Commerce clause does not give the Feds the power over ALL commerce between states.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris The Commerce clause ONLY gives the Feds the power to make sure the states engage in interstate commerce. To make commerce regular between the states. as far as national security, that argument is a joke. Taxing power or maritime law does not do it either.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris The states, separately or collectively can team together and stop bad environment practices, IF their state constitutions allow it.

Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris I am 100% for taking care of the environment, and giving the different levels of government the authority to stop real threats, but not violate their charters to do so, because to do it when they don't have the authority is lawlessness.

Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris No, it is not the same argument Muslim's have to have sex with pre-pubes. Sex with pre-pubes has always been considered sick and immoral.

Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris What I am talking about is, where in the past people considered anyone who nature deemed adult as a adult, in other words those who went through puberty. This was North, South, East West and the rest of the world.

Isaac Asimov
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

― Issac Asimov

By Kirby Liberty Harris Willie, you wasted your typing, since I am not anti-science or anti-intellectual in the least. I am ALL for a modern way of thinking that infuses the good thinking of the past and future. I am a skeptic, which makes me good at science.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris I am all for evidence, except when there is none. I don't twist the facts that are there to suit my agenda. I explain what is actually there means. So the Asimov quotes does not apply to me. You are thinking members of the Trump Cult.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris No, not at all. And the North had plenty of rapes, just like the South. You need to learn facts NOT spout uninformed nonsense. And the South didn't marry their sisters ... that was Kentucky and West VA ... part of the North.

By William Dykeman There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See:

• According to the ‘Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings’ this proverb has been traced back to 1546 (John Heywood), and resembles the Biblical verse Jeremiah 5:21 (‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not’). In 1738 it was used by Jonathan Swift in his ‘Polite Conversation’ and is first attested in the United States in the 1713 ‘Works of Thomas Chalkley’. The full saying is: ‘There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know’.

By Kirby Liberty Harris No, the North was just as corrupt. Both sides were. The South lost because Lincoln suspended the Constitution and arrested the leaders of the bread basket states, who all records show would have succeeded. The South could not feed themselves.
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris I am glad the South lost, because IF not the South would have become a third world nation, because the North had the modern industrialization. And glad it ended slavery. But slavery could have ended without a war...the rest of the world did it without a war.

By William Dykeman Anecdotal evidence is evidence from anecdotes, i.e., evidence collected in a casual or informal manner and relying heavily or entirely on personal testimony. When compared to other types of evidence, anecdotal evidence is generally regarded as limited in value due to a number of potential weaknesses, but may be considered within the scope of scientific method as some anecdotal evidence can be both empirical and verifiable, e.g. in the use of case studies in medicine. Other anecdotal evidence, however, does not qualify as scientific evidence, because its nature prevents it from being investigated by the scientific method.

Where only one or a few anecdotes are presented, there is a larger chance that they may be unreliable due to cherry-picked or otherwise non-representative samples of typical cases.[1][2] Similarly, psychologists have found that due to cognitive bias people are more likely to remember notable or unusual examples rather than typical examples.[3] Thus, even when accurate, anecdotal evidence is not necessarily representative of a typical experience. Accurate determination of whether an anecdote is typical requires statistical evidence.[4] Misuse of anecdotal evidence is an informal fallacy and is sometimes referred to as the "person who" fallacy ("I know a person who..."; "I know of a case where..." etc.) which places undue weight on experiences of close peers which may not be typical. Compare with hasty generalization.

The term is sometimes used in a legal context to describe certain kinds of testimony which are uncorroborated by objective, independent evidence such as notarized documentation, photographs, audio-visual recordings, etc.

When used in advertising or promotion of a product, service, or idea, anecdotal reports are often called a testimonial, which are highly regulated[5] or banned in some[which?] jurisdictions.

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

By William Dykeman there is no other way to properly find the government, you life in a fantasy world
Picture?type=square
By Kirby Liberty Harris Nope, there are plenty of ways to fund the government without taxes. Lotteries, government bonds, safe investments, tolls, user fees, government charities and the list goes on and on. BUT, we must cost fraud, abuse and things that the private sector can do and have the government to encourage people to start and fund private charities.
