    Remember a few years ago when Insurance Journal published an article pointing out how few named storms had hit the United States over the previous 15 years, an all-time record low number for that period of time?

    Right. Me neither.

      I agree that 100 years is a VERY short time frame for a planet that has been around for billions of years.

      I agree that the most sensational, fear-mongering articles get published here, but articles that cause reflection that maybe things aren’t so bad don’t ever see the light of day. (Example: the IPCC’s latest projection is NOT the worst case projection, but slightly worse than current conditiions. Don’t look for that in Insurance Journal. Or on CNN, NY Times etc. etc.)

      I agree with more and more REAL climate scientists that all of the fear mongering is killing serious discussion about climate change solutions that make sense.

      I agree that if the lock down kills over 1,000,000. children, that where I put the semi-colon in my sentence isn’t very important, and that just on deaths alone, the lock down is a mistake, if we treat every human life as equal.
