1. He said in his tweet what he thinks. Owning an airline has nothing to do with it.

4. Are they solar powered airplanes?

Of not they're emitting fossil fuel by products in the upper atmosphere.

Still, it's always a lesson on how lefty contorts himself to protect his 1%er masters.

2. We have to admit the inconvenient truth

"Owning an airline" doesn't prevent you from understanding the reality of the science. What the righties here and elsewhere can't grasp is that THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL QUESTION.

It is a scientific one and the science is more than obvious despite repeated denials from the non-scientists here who wish the truth were something else because of their silly vested political interests.

about the reality of the science.

You never could answer the simple questions posed.

Who has silly vested political interests.again?

6. You are just blowing

totally partisan smoke. The problem is that the Globe is warming due to human activity and ignoring the problem will make it substantially worse.

You are trying to prove you are a bigger bird. That is a fools errand.

8. Indeed it is

And maybe we need to modify exactly how we do that but first we have to understand and admit the problem. Denying the blatantly obvious science is not a answer.

11. The science shows that we are hovering dangerously close to a low carbon event. You have been lied

to.

Last ice age we got down to 10% of what is required to sustain plant life.

You have NO moral or scientific authority on this. ZERO.

13. assuming facts not in evidence...

I see no evidence that a warming planet is man caused...

But let's just assume for a second that you're right.

What can you do about it?

Answer: nothing.

A million Prii out on the roads aren't going to counteract the number of coal fired plants opened every month in China and India.

Just embrace the reality...

Over the next few hundred years, populations will shift northward (or southward) into different regions and they will find newly rich and fertile lands.

BTW, did you know that some experts believe that GW will be halted as accelerated vegetative growth occurs in northern climates?

that is nonsense.

3 false statements from someone who claimed they could discuss the issue and then failed to do so.

22. I completely disagree

I answered you clearly with a carefully thought through post. You ignored and or dismissed my response. I've discovered that you don't want a discussion. Your goal appears only to be to belittle me. I know that you want very much to ignore the inconvenient scientific facts. I have no confidence in your ability to sustain a meaningful discussion so I have to say I am not up for a discussion with you because I find you both ignorant and unresponsive to logical argument and facts.

You said you were traveling....

You claimed you were going to research the details.

You have made no logical arguments, just avoidance.

26. Check the original thread and you will discover that I replied

very specifically.

But you have proven yourself, beyond a shadow of a doubt, to be incapable of an actual discussion as is evidenced by this thread.

Nice talking with you. I hope someday you discover the truth and recognize that climate change is very real and caused by human activity. Other than that I wish you well but I will not be discussing matters of substance with you.

10. Thats idiotic. I bet my carbon footprint is 1/5 of yours. You just feel guilty or you need money for

your "research" so you push this fake agenda.

This is 100% a political question because the scientists are biased, and the left are carbon spewing asshole hypocrites.

1000% political.

Fucking termites produce 10 times the carbon dioxide that humans do.

This argument is stupid and over.

12. How much does he contribute to global warming by owning an airline?

If he's going to make this an accusation he needs to look in the mirror.

15. Just one more Lefty hypocrite

"Please ignore my lifestyle and what I actually do and just pretend my words have some deep, sincere meaning"

Algore - private planes, multiple homes, pool heaters etc.

Leonardo DiCaprio - private planes, multiple homes

Branson - pumping tons of CO2 in the air every day from his fleet of jets, including his personal G5 Gulfstream and running the AC 24/7/365 on his private islands.

You could add pretty much any of the lefty DC crowd of global alarmists to the list too, with examples of their multi-home, private jet lives (You too Bernie, you old fraud).

18. Probably wind powered

I have visions of Super Chief Stream liners with old fashioned dutch style windmills on top of each car.

Wind blows and you go a few yards, wind stops and you twiddle your thumbs.
