2019-09-24 Climate Change More Expensive To Fix The Damage

from FB reply to a comment Sep 27 I watched the video of the press conference on SROCC. What he said is that if the CC deniers delay the changes needed to halt climate change, it’s going to cost many times the amount needed to fix the mess later. “… Over time, paying for climate

from FB comment to Bill Bill Sherman When I was young, Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” When I was concerned about Y2K, Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” Now that I’m old, it’s Thermonuclear fusion was “Twenty years until we have free energy.” I’ll be long

from FB group Orange Talk 2018-11-11 Shelby Kobra I absolutely agree. You’re free to spend more than that on car repairs not to mention the time you have to spend without the car or dealing with the repair hassles. Oh, we should mention that the roads may be more prone to accidents due to the
