Why would anyone believe a "scientist"?
Radical Islamist involvement in any terrorist attack should be the rebuttable presumption for objective human beings after every terrorist attack. I have shown that environmental activists engage in criminal activity and not just in Brazil.
Why would any doomsday fanatic not set fires to "save the planet"? Do you think arson is a "challenge" to the "moral imagination" of our crooks and nuts?
"Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore believes the climate crisis is getting worse “way faster” than most people realize, describing it as a “challenge to our moral imagination.”
Delivering closing remarks at a World Economic Forum panel session on Wednesday, Gore spoke passionately about the climate emergency.
At one stage, the co-founder of Generation Investment Management compared the scale of the crisis to a number of infamous historic events.
It is “way worse” than many realize and intensifying “way faster” than people appreciate, Gore said.
“This is Thermopylae. This is Agincourt. This is Dunkirk. This is the Battle of the Bulge. This is 9/11,” he added.
Gore’s comments follow the the hottest year on record for the world’s oceans, the second-hottest year for global average temperatures, and wildfires from the U.S. to the Amazon to Australia."

liberals are "Arson Deniers" because they won't except there are people out there who deliberately start bushfires.
They are also ""back burning" and "fuel clearing deniers" who don't believe fires need fuel to burn
If you bring these points into the conversation libs just shout you down as a climate change denier... so there's your lib logic right back at ya
Over the last few months in Australia.
"SYDNEY, AUS. (THECOUNT) — A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.
In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years."

You only mentioned the Brazil thing to me.
Who the hell is it being rude to?
YOU coined that phrase?
Here's 21 minutes of climate experts. If you want to skip to 9:30, an expert glaciologist tells us about AGW.
Welp, so much for that 1/10th of 1 degree causing massive droughts/fires in Australia. I guess it also caused the massive rains that have put out all the fires.
Have to wonder if their agenda was to promote the climate change agenda.
I like your thinking.
Who says they no longer pose a threat? They kill some car thief in a fight in prison then what? Your desire to not have them executed just cost one more life.
Whine about climate change causing the fires.....
While he lives in huge compound which I'm gonna guess does not have the smallest environmental footprint....sleeps about 150 if needed.
What a pompous ass hat.
OK ,lets put this whole 'arson is responsible for the bush fire crisis not the weather/climate' BS to bed once and for all. If only so next time we have a bush fire crisis occurs (and it will happen again at some point) we don't have the waste waste time with it.
Below is a link to an ABC 'Fact Check' that researched this issue. The results come down clearly on the 'not true' side of the argument. (And yes I know its the 'boogy man' ABC but the the researchers use the best available data, clearly identify gaps or flaws in that data when present have a track record for calling both sides of politics when they are caught lying.)
Of particular interest was one observation 'Although not always the case, evidence suggests that so-called "natural fires" — generally started by lightning strikes — are likely to be much larger and more remote than fires started by arsonists'
Noting that by far and away the largest/most serious fires faced up and down the East Coast this year started in remote locations.
BTW another fact check undoes the lie about how many people have actually been arrested for arson this year. Result - numbers are down overall over some past years and notes that the figures quoted don't differential between people being charged with deliberately starting a fire and those who were charged with negligently starting a fire.
Ruperts papers aren’t that scrupulous about checking stories.
That article is on the money, this is coming from a conservative voter.
