Man-made global warming began right around the same time political correctness did.

Before that it never existed.

the houston mayor is a man

Sylvester Turner (born September 27, 1954) is an American attorney and politician who is the 62nd and current mayor of Houston, Texas. A member of the Democratic Party, Turner was previously a member of the Texas House of Representatives from 1989 until 2016. He is Houston's second African American mayor. Turner attended the University of Houston and Harvard Law School.

Turner was born on September 27, 1954 in Houston, Texas, as the sixth of nine children, and was raised in the Acres Homes community in northwest Houston by his father, a commercial painter, and his mother, a maid at the Rice Hotel.[7] Turner was elected senior class president by his peers and awarded valedictorian of his graduating class from Klein High School.[8] At the University of Houston he was Speaker of the Student Senate and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. degree in Political Science. In addition, Turner achieved a finalist position in the Ames Moot Court Competition while obtaining a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School. Turner is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity.

Upon graduating from law school, Turner joined the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski. In 1983, Turner founded his own law firm, Barnes & Turner. He has served as an adjunct professor at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law, and as a seminar lecturer at the South Texas College of Law and the University of Houston Law School's Continuing Legal Education Programs.[10] Turner was admitted to practice in the State of Texas, federal District Court for the Southern District Court of Texas and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas, American Bar Association, National Bar Association, Houston Lawyers Association, and the Houston Bar Association.

Don't know who you are quoting on that, but if that is truly your basis of thought, you've dropped a couple of notches in any respect I've had for you. I realize that likely doesn't mean diddly to you, but that is pretty rock bottom, salty.
