  1. http://www.pnas.org/content/114/48/12681 https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/Landsea/harvey-global-warming.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwi2pr2C5sfdAhVsU98KHSfHClcQFjAAegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw2L0VcZtUU69kPbdTQbK-eP I'm not saying the science on this particular thing is settled. The contribution of increased SST and WV to rainfall on average is relatively small. However, there does seem some evidence to suggest that events such as Harvey and Florence are made more likely due to agw. You can read those two documents I linked if you wish. The thing you mentioned about 30" from a normal speed TC is not a realistic standard to verify whether agw increases the likelihood of severe floodng.

  3. I think there was an attribution study to Harvey on the breakdown of steering currents was made more likely via agw. There would be some contribution to Florence I'd think. It's super unusual to get 3 ft of rain from a hurricane.
  4. I thought it was a hot take lol
  5. I don't believe for one minute the media of the 1920s through 1960s was honest and objective and trustworthy. People always have biases and there is only finances at play. Especially then there was strong current of nationalism where America is good and other countries are bad. Just because there was a few squeaky clean "newsmen" telling us the news doesn't mean it wasn't biased. The only difference nowadays is that the GOP has weaponized it to such a degree that the media is now the enemy of the people.
  6. Maybe it actually never existed.
  7. It's still way higher than conservatives and has been for a long time. Look at all the conservatives who only trust fox news and Limbaugh and the like.
  8. https://knightfoundation.org/reports/american-views-trust-media-and-democracy It's true. But the majority of it has been driven by the GOP. Conservatives have been at the forefront of media mistrust for decades. Trump has tapped into that better than anyone before.

I guess its a good thing we have checks and balances. I'm really not sure if trump believes in the same democracy that I do.

  12. I haven't seen anyone burning flag in awhile. I mean I actually haven't seen it or even heard about it happening.
  13. It's tough to argue a dude like Tyrod Taylor is any better than kapernick. Similar running stats. Similar throwing stats. Tyrod is a starting qb for the Browns and kapernick is out of the league.
