Here's how I observed Earth Day 2017: Sitting somewhere between Fort Stockton and Sanderson, watching assorted birds, snakes, and other wildlife go by. Think Mustangs, Stingrays, Hellcats, Vipers, Firebirds ...

My Earth Day demonstration consisted of sending over 300 rounds of 9mm back to the earth during a day of training at KR Training.

Because he's a human being. He has a political point of view, and it colors the positions he takes. That may not be different from the rest of us, but it's a reason to be skeptical of most things.

As for the silliness about science not being a liberal conspiracy, I don't know anyone who thinks it is. But scientists are fallible humans, and they sometimes push their political predilections by claiming the predilections are science based. My problem is not with science (which is just a process, after all). It's with people using the mantle of science to obscure political agendas.

Thank You!!!!!!

Personally, I would prefer it to be a bit warmer. The winters down in Houston lately have been downright chilly. That's why I left Seattle 9 years ago. I always encourage everyone to do everything they can to help increase global warming.

This is my cup-o-tea as well. I ran the BBORR in 2012, was thinking about doing it again this year, but other priorities. Maybe SSCC (Silver State Classic Challenge - Nevada) in September

If you have a flat dark earth pistol on Earth Day, does that mean that Christopher Columbus/earth-is-round is fake news?

Christopher Columbus was white and oppressed the native population so you may be on to something.

He may be wrong but what a guy!


Here is a discussion with Dr. S. Fred Singer, the first director of the U. S. weather satellite program. He knows of what he is speaking.

The interesting thing about his comments is that he does not contradict Tyson's claim that CO2 is increasing from man made sources, in fact, he concurs. He goes on to say that there is no data to support the claim that the increasing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is causing temperatures to increase.

A person capable of reason would hear both of these men and recognize that conclusions drawn by Tyson are subject to debate.
