Do You Think They'll Get It? I'll Take That Bet.
It's not that hard to figure out unless you're a 21st century neoliberal, a group that's coming to resemble the anti-vaxxers. And, yeah, I'm lumping in that group the Dauphin and Andrew Scheer and the future leader of the New Democrats to boot. All devout neoliberals, every one of them.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, - if the "ranch" was located in downtown Houston - the place is being inundated by a hurricane turned tropical storm that's expected to park itself over the city for three, possibly four days. Remind you of somewhere else, closer to home? How about the Calgary floods of 2013?
Now nobody can say with any certainty that all or part of the ongoing Houston flooding is due to climate change. You cannot be heard to say that. Worse yet, you must not suggest that it's man-made, that human influences are driving this. That shall not be condoned. It's "natural variation", that's all. Move along, nothing to see here.
Sure, Houston is flooded today, but, once the flood waters recede to the point where there's enough usable air underground, all those heads are going to slam as deep as possible into the sand.
