1. @ExtinctionR Having looked at some of your policies & grievances my advice to you as a scientist is to do your own research before you jump to conclusions; resist the temptation to go down a EnergyDeadEnd path before really appreciating after years of research life's realities
2. @ExtinctionR scenario has come about through a few scientists exaggerating #ClimateChange which is a natural phenomena that has occurred since Earth had an atmosphere; one of the variables keeping us warm is yes photosynthesising #TraceGas #CO2 as well as water vapour (clouds)
3. @ExtinctionR Earth's CO2 levels vary over time & currently only 0.041% or to make it sound larger 410ppm on average; at levels below 200ppm to 150ppm #photosynthesis ceases & all life relying on plants will die off.
Many other variables are involved with #ClimateChange e.g.Sun

Graham was once one of Trump’s sharpest critics (“I think he’s a kook,” in 2016), and is now one of his staunchest supporters, whether it comes to supporting his Supreme Court pick, or his golf game (“Anyone who says he’s not a great golfer, that’s fake news,” he said).(WaPo)
Sen. Lindsey Graham advises President Donald Trump to “stick to his guns” in the fight over funding for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and warned that giving in to Democrats' demands could be "the end of his presidency." (USAToday)

@FiveThirtyEight which tracks congressional votes, reported that as of October 2018 Sen Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) had voted with Trump's position 100% of the time. #GOPComplicit #GOPFail #DemSenate2020

@drvox We need to be talking about the clear authoritarianism, supremacist thinking and dangerous narratives of Evangelical Christians. slate.com/technology/201…
@drvox Here's what's being preached on Capitol Hill to law and policymakers by a 'ministry' sponsored by a large number top Trump cabinet/former cabinet members: #ScienceMatters #ThisIsNoJoke capmin.org/coming-to-grip…

(1) I'm reluctant to start another thread today but this is important. NBC has openly tried to underestimate the severity of hurricane #Florence, which is something meteorologists, officials and hurricane watchers object to, whoever does it.
(2) Now, it could be just one NBC reporter with a bad case of #TDS writing a tweet without knowing that entire careers have been built on campaigning for SAFER and more accurate weather reporting by media.

But if that were the case, NBC would have retracted it by now.
(3) I want to thank the meteorologists who called out NBC for their reckless tweet about #Florence. Most science professionals don't like Trump but they're not about to try to get people killed for political gain.

They have a soul.

Scientists urged to 'speak the same language' as public on climate

Communicating science is a skill, try it, flex it, use it

@DrFraserMilne is one of our best geological #scicomm examples

(1) Today I'm celebrating the best Easter in my 48 years on this earth.

And I'm not even a Christian. But I'll tell you why I'm so grateful for the life and death of Jesus Christ, and those who follow him today, especially those in the USA.
(2) Some years ago I came across the online atheist community, and became very interested in their views and practices. During that time I opened this Twitter account, as a way to connect to that community. I keep the account bc changing the username is too much of a hassle now.
(3) I don't support the practice of assuming a person's beliefs and labeling them according to their Twitter username. I'm an agnostic, not an atheist. I don't believe in God, but I never rule anything out. Atheist SJWs are some of the biggest bullies online.

(1) I #resisted following the March for Our post-birth Lives but some of the photos are too good not to share. In this one, a proud American NRA member who happens to be black peacefully protests the idiocy. Arguably, he has more at stake than most of the kids marching.
(2) If given the chance, I can make a very strong case for African Americans and "people of color" benefiting from this administration more than other groups. But the Left isn't interested in hearing it and resorts immediately to the expired race card.
(3) As @Dloesch is constantly telling us, black males are one of the groups, if not the group, most affected by gun homicides, especially in certain large cities, that have coincidentally been held by Democrats for many decades, and are supposed gun free zones (aka killing zones)

#Pruitt is a regular attendee of the weekly Bible Study run by the highly politicized Evangelical Capitol Ministries. Here is their sermon on environmentalism. Folks really need to understand what is happening here. #ScienceMatters capmin.org/coming-to-grip…
This goes throughout this administration. This is not 'economic populism' #Pence /1 theintercept.com/2016/11/15/mik…

(1) Not only is #MagnoliaGate about media malpractice, it's about the EXCELLENT job successful self made businesswoman Melania Trump is doing as manager of all non-political WH matters (which a FLOTUS always is). She took expert advice on the tree bc #ScienceMatters y'all.
(2) Here's the article with the ridiculously misleading headline Newsweek used, triggering #TreeGate #MagnoliaGate. I recommend reading it. newsweek.com/melania-trump-…
(2) Liberals love to portray the President and his team as somehow incompetent rubes (hello? 45 year career, >300 companies, >60k employees, turned a small fortune into a massive fortune). This example is an excellent one showing WHY Trumps are so successful.
