    Let's hope MB won't have to change the iconic "4810" on its nibs.

    It's from the New York Times. Nuff said.

    Im aware that this is a true story, I thought the sarcasm and irony were clear in my previous post. (But English is not my first language so I might be wrong)

    I live near the Alps and Im painfully aware of the human made global warming and can see the dramatic changes, just as 99,97% of the serious climate scientific community.

    Keep in mind that there are many, many people here in the United States who are profoundly ashamed of the actions of the current resident of the White House, and that the majority of the citizens are well aware of the perils of climate change. It is very sad to have a National Park - Glacier National Park! - that is losing the very elements that gave it the name. It is my fervent hope that we can correct the wrongs of the last 3 years and move forward to address these wider issues, but all of this involves human beings, and one can never completely predict how they will behave.

    I don't mean to become too political in this thread, as I've spoken out against politics in the forums. If I've crossed a line, I'll redact.

    I find your sarcasm totally unwarranted. And your assumption that I hadn't read the whole thread is discourteous and has no basis in fact.

    The fact that our "stable genius" of a President denies humanity's role in aggravating climate change is irrefutable and a sad example of political expediency. This is not "President bashing" but simply a valid criticism. I can express this criticism seriously or in a light hearted manner.

    For the record, I also believe he is a numb nut.

    I hope you don't find my comments as "too political". If you do, don't worry as I can't vote against him in the next elections. As you may know residents of a US colony can't vote for the US president. Now that's certainly political.

    Maybe Global Warming has not quite reached his nuts, yet. It takes time, as much as four more years.
