Actually, the right-wing posters on this website have made it clear that climate change isn't real, and therefore increasingly frequent weather catastrophes do not happen, no matter what your lying eyes tell you.

So even though this is happening, it isn't happening.

I hope this clears it up.

Actually, the right-wing posters .....

First, it has nothing to do with right-wing, left-wing. Both sides have their own opinions. Just because someone doesn't again with you makes them right-wing. That is Left-wing thinking.

Second, how many times have we read in the news "This is the worst storm since ....." which of course tells us we've had these weather patterns before. Are they getting worse? Some would say yes, some would say no. But their words have nothing to do with their political views.

Looks grim. Sure the Feds can print and spend more money to fix it all.

I did some work in Jefferson Parish. A lot of places are below sea level. The water is higher than the land. I wonder if New Orleans will become the Venice of America?

No city in the world has an electrical infrastructure that can handle a storm like that.

This is amazing.

Read through what you wrote again, carefully, and see if you can find the glaring contradiction.

Also, yes, climate change denial is a right-wing political position.

Albert DeFillipo: "First, it has nothing to do with right-wing, left-wing. Both sides have their own opinions. Just because someone doesn't again with you makes them right-wing. That is Left-wing thinking."

Man, you couldn't have shot yourself in the foot any better if you had a shot-gun to it point blank. Well done. Oh, and it never is "right-wing, left-wing" when it's quite literally the fault of people on the right who deny climate change is real and keep pushing for, you know, the oil and natural gas and other things that have had to shut down because of the hurricane. Well done.

"Some would say yes," 95% of the world's scientists.

"...some would say no." The morons at least partly responsible for what you're seeing.

"But their words have nothing to do with their political views."

The words of the people who deny climate change have EVERYTHING do with their politics. Those who support the science, whom you automatically call "the Left" (again, because it has to do with your political views), not so much if at all. But if you REALLY want to see someone who is acting regardless of political views, look no further than President Biden, who is helping regardless of what some in that state have been pushing up until now. Contrast this with what Trump did, LITERALLY for politics, with Puerto Rico.

Take care, peeps.

Absolute classic. I’ll print this and frame it. Starting every morning with a chuckle is good for the heart and mind.

I’d say that by definition ‘the worst since..’ is pretty much a cut and dried case of getting worse.

Are they getting worse?

Yes because warmer seas give storms more energy. This is something Trump people don't realize since they don't believe in Science.

Joe is good for America

He wants to reinstate net neutrality (works great in Japan), expand public healthcare (Trump people in Japan use it all the time), and prioritize clean energy. When something bad happened on Trump's watch he just blamed Hillary.

Readers, please leave politics out of this discussion.

Nasty storm. They’ll recover, we always do. I’m looking forward to the 2 or 3 Nicholas Cage B movies to help them.

Hoping the good people of Louisiana can weather another, annual storm and FEMA is enroute before the ‘foreseeable tragedies’ begin to mount.

Powerful hurricane. - Is that photo ‘real’? - Did it blow both, the right AND the left wing,ers

equally off that ‘angel’ in the accompanying photo?

Nasty storm.” - Agree. Hoping Will Smith is okay, too..

- “I’m looking forward to the 2 or 3 Nicholas Cage B movies to help them.”

While Smith’s local contributions are ‘donations’, Cage’s increased work and rapid output is ‘to pay off debt and tax liabilities’.

“They’ll recover, THEY always do.”

might wanna check that. Cage is “considered one of the most generous actors”.

Net worth today: around 25 million.

“They’ll recover, THEY always do.”

“We” as in humans

sheesh!

Especially the right wingers working for or heavily invested in the fossil economy

Who's "we"? Oh, someone asked you, but their post was deleted

“We” as in humans

sheesh!

Easy to say when you're not there.

Humans recover from cancer.

Humans recover from heart disease.

Humans even recover from being shot.

But not everyone does.

And we should be working to help them.

Not abandoning them to, "lol! things happen".
