From the posted article:
In 1988, then-Sen. Timothy Wirth, D-Colo., said: “We’ve got to … try to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong … we will be doing the right thing anyway in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
Here we have a Democratic Senator openly saying they will lie to achieve their goals, just as us Conservatives have stated they are doing and have been doing for years. And this is just one topic. How many other issues are they willing to lie about to get their way?

And still, those on the left will ignore this testimony and continue to parrot the same old, worn out, leftist talking points as gospel.

Anyone who buys into the man-made global warming garbage has a fundamental misunderstanding of science and the climate.

Australia's deadly wildfires are showing no signs of stopping. Here's what you need to know



Australia is being ravaged by the worst wildfires seen in decades, with large swathes of the country devastated since the fire season began in late July.

A total of 27 people have died nationwide, and in the state of New South Wales (NSW) alone, more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged. State and federal authorities are struggling to contain the massive blazes, even with firefighting assistance from other countries, including the United States.
All this has been exacerbated by persistent heat and drought, and many point to climate change as a factor making natural disasters go from bad to worse.

There have been fires in every Australian state, but New South Wales has been hardest hit.
Blazes have torn through bushland, wooded areas, and national parks like the Blue Mountains. Some of Australia's largest cities have also been affected, including Melbourne and Sydney -- where fires have damaged homes in the outer suburbs and thick plumes of smoke have blanketed the urban center. Earlier in December, the smoke was so bad in Sydney that air quality measured 11 times the "hazardous" level.
Haze from the bushfires is seen over Sydney's Bondi Beach on December 10, 2019.

The fires range in area from small blazes -- isolated buildings or part of a neighborhood -- to massive infernos that occupy entire hectares of land. Some start and are contained in a matter of days, but the biggest blazes have been burning for months. In NSW alone, more than 100 fires are still burning.

Experts say climate change has worsened the scope and impact of natural disasters like fires and floods -- weather conditions are growing more extreme, and for years, the fires have been starting earlier in the season and spreading with greater intensity. READ MORE

Yeah, it is terrible that Australia is going through this. But what does this have to do with the topic at hand? Did you know that the Sahara Dessert was once plush with vegetation? What caused it to turn to sand? Was it cavemen driving SUV's?

And Greenland used to be green hundreds of years ago, does that mean we went through a mini ice age? I wonder what caused that? Climate Change?

actually climate change
we can't control meteors and volcanoes but we can control man-made disruptions
