“Agree to disagree” is white guy speak for “I understand you have an opinion but unfortunately, me.”
No it’s human being speak for “We have differing opinions and I can see that neither of us are going to persuade the other to change theirs so we shouldn’t continue this argument because it’s going nowhere” jesus you’re all fucking children
The silly logic that congress has about climate change
You may have already seen the full segment on The Daily Show (you should if you haven’t) where John Stewart critiques a recent hearing held by the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology. It echoes a commencement speech that President Obama gave last spring at UC Irvine:
Today’s Congress is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence about climate change. They will tell you it is a hoax, or a fad. One member of Congress actually says the world is cooling. There was one member of Congress who mentioned a theory involving “dinosaur flatulence”—which I won’t get into.
As for the ice in the glass concept, mounting evidence finds large swaths of land ice melting into the ocean. A recent study that incorporates 40 years of observations from a joint effort with NASA and UC Irvine has found that the West Antarctic glacier will contribute to a 4 foot rise in sea level.
