That 'global warming business' Mr Trump...

And we're hardly into September...

Hurricane Irma has been upgraded to a category five - the highest category - making it "extremely dangerous" as it crosses the Caribbean.

Lets hope the prediction that Irma will head for Florida is correct and that it totally destroys his gaudy golf cunt palace with him in it.

What pisses me off about US republicans is the BS about 'requiring proof' before doing anything about global warming.

This is clearly bullshit and should always be loudly exposed as intolerable hypocrisy, because these hypocrites never demanded "proof" before spending hundreds of billions of dollars and killing hundreds of thousands of people on a wild goose chase for WMD in Iraq.

Trump is being judged by God for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord.

Just like in 2012 when the presidential candidates failed to debate the environment, but the environment forced itself onto the agenda with perfect timing just before the election, when hurricane Sandy came along.

Currently heading for Miami.

Why ask for 'proof'? Surely if there's a strong possibility that something is happening then surely it's common sense to try and avoid it?

Sorry, Fleur, you're wrong. You're just a tool of the climate change conspiracy.

I'm on the subway tracks. it looks like the light barreling at me is on the front of a subway train. but I demand proof, before I move.

that's why there are so few Republicans in NYC.

I can completely understand why some people don't believe global warming is being caused by humans. It seems to me that we are at least partially at fault, but the science is complicated and some people may not find it convincing.

What is far more mind boggling is the refusal to admit that the climate is changing at all. The facts there are clear.

There's a lot of innocent people in that track.

Mostly is just down to the fact that some groups make their money out of the status quo, and don't want to believe because it's easiest for them not to spend effort on changing how they make their money.

Its currently on a nasty track as if it skims down the Florida Coast its going to keep picking up energy from the ocean.

Minor violins for the owners of these yachts

Lots of people on BVI live in shanty towns though. Who do you think looks after those yachts all the year round?

bossab2 - 07 Sep 2017 20:05:25 (#14 of 106)

Bransons still alive apparently.

It's alphabetical, and there's a K hurricane blowing up too.

Kunta!

I wonder how much of the USA needs to be demolished before Trump starts taking notice ?

Verdigris - 07 Sep 2017 20:34:53 (#20 of 106)

He's going to build a wall, a beautiful wall, to keep those foreign hurricanes out.
