Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

What the actual **** are those Trump Tweets getting at? Reversing the trend of fewer accidents? Making it easier for hijackers? I can't think of an angle here.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

To everyone complaining about airport food in the US all I can say is, don't visit Heathrow or Gatwick.

Of the cities so far not named, Charlotte also has a really nice airport with easy access. New Orleans was a dump, but it was nice to be welcomed by an actual live band at baggage claim. Not sure if they still do that but it was pretty awesome.

Still PSP is the best. Gotta love an open air terminal in the California sunshine.

He was obviously reading this thread and saw the airport derail.

There is no angle. Someone idiot was bitching about technology in airplanes and he heard it. Now he is parroting what he heard. Same **** as it always is.

Once he heard that the airline was Ethiopian Airlines, he knew he could skip the thoughts and prayers tweet.

But 95% of rebuttals will just allow the premise that the guy is the co-founder and had some recent change of heart.

Greenpeace Statement On Patrick Moore

Quote:
Patrick Moore often misrepresents himself in the media as an environmental “expert” or even an “environmentalist,” while offering anti-environmental opinions on a wide range of issues and taking a distinctly anti-environmental stance. He also exploits long-gone ties with Greenpeace to sell himself as a speaker and pro-corporate spokesperson, usually taking positions that Greenpeace opposes.

Patrick Moore Does Not Represent Greenpeace

Patrick Moore has been a paid spokesman for a variety of polluting industries for more than 30 years, including the timber, mining, chemical and the aquaculture industries. Most of these industries hired Mr. Moore only after becoming the focus of a Greenpeace campaign to improve their environmental performance. Mr. Moore has now worked for polluters for far longer than he ever worked for Greenpeace. Greenpeace opposes the use of nuclear energy because it is a dangerous and expensive distraction from real solutions to climate change.

Patrick Moore Did Not Found Greenpeace

Patrick Moore frequently portrays himself as a founder or co-founder of Greenpeace, and many news outlets have repeated this characterization. Although Mr. Moore played a significant role in Greenpeace Canada for several years, he did not found Greenpeace. Phil Cotes, Irving Stowe, and Jim Bohlen founded Greenpeace in 1970. Patrick Moore applied for a berth on the Phyllis Cormack in March, 1971 after the organization had already been in existence for a year. A copy of his application letter and Greenpeace’s response are available here (PDF).

Patrick Moore is a Paid Spokesperson for the Nuclear Industry

In April 2006, the Nuclear Energy Institute, the principal lobby for the nuclear industry, launched the Clean And Safe Energy Coalition and installed former Bush Administration EPA Administrator Christine Todd Whitman and Mr. Moore as its co-chairs. The Clean and Safe Energy Coalition was part of a public relations project spearheaded by the public relations giant Hill & Knowlton as part of its estimated $8 million contract with the nuclear industry.(1)

Reminder that Trump is actually very much into influencing how planes fly.

A screenshot of that should be the only rebuttal anytime that Greenpeace is ever mentioned with that guy's name to give him some kind of ex-liberal cred.

The man who brought us the Space Force!™ now wants us to go back to using World War I era biplanes because he saw a story about a plane crash on Fox & Friends.

I'm old enough to remember last week when the President was saying that AOC wanted to get rid of airplanes. It literally is always projection.

She worked at Trump Tower on the 2016 campaign and married a Trump 2020 staffer at Mar-a-Lago, so she's been in his orbit for a while.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

These smug climate scientists have lost touch with regular people who read a science blog once. Who wants to hear my opinion on climate change?
