Another Climate Prediction Fizzles: DC Climate Rally for Pope shrinks from expected 200,000 people to just ‘hundreds’

-

Washington DC: The hopes were so high back in August for a massive climate rally to support Pope Francis’ climate push. But reality has now sunk in .

Climate Prediction: August 25, 2015: WaPo: ‘For Pope Francis’s D.C. visit, environmental rally of up to 200K planned’ – Several environmental groups are planning a major climate rally that will draw hundreds of thousands to the National Mall on Sept. 24, the day Pope Francis speaks to Congress and is expected to address the public afterwards. The permit for the gathering — which will make the moral case for reducing greenhouse gas emissions linked to global warming — is for 200,000 people. The Moral Action on Climate Network, along with the Earth Day Network, League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club and other groups, have timed the rally on the Mall the same day of the pope’s speech.

Reality: September 24, 2015: ‘Pope’s Visit To D.C. Inspires Hundreds To Rally For Climate’ Rally – ‘On Thursday morning — as Pope Francis prepared to make history by addressing Congress — hundreds of activists gathered on the National Mall. Holding signs, petitioning for signatures, and offering spirited remarks to an expectant crowd, the activists represented a spectrum of causes and religious denominations, from young evangelicals to Black Lives Matter leaders.’

Greenpeace seemed to confirm the small turnout for the climate rally, tweeting out today:

  1. Greenpeace, among the most uncaring bunch of cheats you’re likely to find. The Pope and The President, perhaps the most corrupt high-ranking twosome in history. Both full of it. Both hiding an agenda. Both advocating world gov’t ran by people who want most people on Earth dead.

            • If they had science on their side, they’d be able to explain how 6 GtC from man made CO2 stays in the atmosphere for decades while natural CO2 exchanges hundreds of GtC per year.

              if they had science on their side, they could explain why CO2 levels lag mean global temperatures by 800 years, like the ice core data shows.

              if they had science on their side, they could show how CO2’s 13 micrometer band, which is already saturated out, would be able to block more than 100% of the IR energy it now blocks, thus how more CO2 would cause more warming.

              If they had history on their side, they could show how this time warming is bad, while all the rest of the history shows that warming is good for humanity.

              Instead, they agree that it is okay to lie to you (Climate-gate e-mails).

              • Yes. I wondered from 3rd grade when we were supposed to be terrified about global cooling how all that junk could go up and not get pushed so high it doesn’t get burned up in the earth’s atmosphere. Now I wonder how they stop all that junk from global warming that gets pushed into the earth’s atmosphere from getting burned up. Oh. That’s right. Now we’re supposed to be TERRIFIED about global climate change… as if the earth’s climate has not changed a lick in the millions of years we have been around on this earth. And these GENIUSES still can’t tell us EXACTLY what the climate on earth SHOULD be today. Their answer is ALWAYS the same: SHUT OFF YOUR LIGHTS, STOP DRIVING, SHUT DOWN COAL MINES and blah, blah blah. I’ll trust God to handle the climate. HE IS IN CONTROL OF THE SUN. They are NUTS!

          • Gosh, here’s an invitation to a productive, insightful conversation…

            Science: I have two unimpeachable sources:

            1) The UAH Satellite Team (University of Alabama, Huntsville) which has been compiling data since the dawn of the satellite age. They provided the basis for the global warming scare until 1996, a fairly severe El Nino year. Not so much since then. Now, the partisan hacks say “What’s so special about satellite data?”. Of course! Pay no attention to the Big Pause! Two bears walk into a bar, and the bartender says, “What’s up with the Big Pause?”

            2) Google Cryostat Satellite, which has been monitoring the arctic ice shelf for a long time. Ready for a shocker? 40% increase in the volume of ice in 2 years. Think about that: +40%, in 2 years. That was considered impossible 2 years ago. What happened? Did we have insanely cold years? No. It was all due to a change in the wind patterns. Sorry if you didn’t get the memo. Sorry if you thought the Arctic was nearly ice free, and the poor polars bears would starve, and Manhattan would soon be under water. Or whatever.

            We both know that these scientific facts make absolutely no difference to you. You probably think that I’m making it up, or that I’ve been fooled by propaganda. Just deny it, and keep making vacuous appeals to Science. That’s my 25-cent word for the day! Can you say VACUOUS?

            • RE Cryosat–it is obvious to even the most casual climate change sleuth that in order for the ice to expand that much in such a short period of time that Mr. Al Gore himself–inventor of the Internet and the 1000 slide PowerPoint–has been secretly visiting the North Pole. Gore effect. Elementary….

            • Wouldn’t it be “nice” IF it were possible to have rational, reasonable discussions on matters such as this. Yep, that’s dreaming… The progressive mindset accommodates no dissent from that of their herd of independent thinkers. The latest move to criminalize thinking out loud about this “sacred matter” reveals a sinister side to progressives that goes a lot further than just being obnoxiously arrogant.

            • ::: scratching my head :::

              So, how come the National Snow and Ice Data Center reported (using satellite data) just last week that “On September 11, Arctic sea ice reached its likely minimum extent for 2015. The minimum ice extent was the fourth lowest in the satellite record, and reinforces the long-term downward trend in Arctic ice extent.”? How can you come to the opposite conclusions? Maybe you have your own satellites and data?

              Source: http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/2015/09/2015_arctic-minimum/ ?

              • No, not at all. First, I said VOLUME, which is different than extent. And I quoted my source: the Cryosat Team. I also mentioned UAH, right? They are entirely legitimate, without question. UAH offers a PhD in climate science. I have read different sources about the size of the extent, particularly in Greenland, but I don’t have those sources at my fingertips. Of course, you can find sources that claim 2015 was the hottest year ever, and 2014 was the hottest year ever, etc. If you look for it. My point is that the same satellite data that measured global warming through ’96, and was cited as the most important data source in the world (“The Satellites Don’t Lie!”), is now routinely dismissed as irrelevant. That’s pathetic. And what about all of those ludicrous predictions about the End of the World? Does it make any difference to you? Wasn’t NYC supposed to be underwater by now? Not so much. Actually, not at all.
                And, maybe more to the point — What about the sacred Theory? We have seen the triumph of global capitalism, and the most astonishing economic growth in China, Indian, the Pacific Rim, and Mexico, among other places. More economic development than ANYONE ever predicted. And what has happened? NOTHING! NOTHING! NOTHING! We have to change the subject, and forget about those pesky satellites! And, by the way, the satellite age began at the end of the 1970s. Was that a reasonable baseline for all of our predictions? I think we can answer that, with the benefit of hindsight.
                Not long ago, our President made a trip to Alaska, where he offered is insights regarding climate change. Did you follow it? Did you happen to catch what the locals had to say — you know, the ones who really know what is going on in Alaska, and what has taken place over the past 100 years?
                I guess at some point I have to ask: What is the optimal size of the Arctic ice cap, and why? What is the optimal rate of climate change? If you could control the climate of the planet, would you make the average temperature warmer, or cooler, or would you keep it exactly the same? Why? If warming is bad, is cooling good? Has there ever been a period, in the history of the world, when planet Earth was too warm to support a thriving biology? When was that? Has ever been periods when the planet was too cold to support a thriving biology? Yes, of course! To the best of our knowledge, there have been Ice Ages that have lasted for millions of years.
                This is the wrong forum, and I apologize for that. If you haven’t hear the latest, the push is to END CAPITALISM to save the planet. If this comes as a surprise to you, you must be young. Have you heard what Bernie Sanders has to say about this?
                I don’t have my own satellites and data, but I realize it makes it easier for you to wish that I was that crazy. I think you may have revealed something about yourself.
                The jig is up. There will be weeping, and gnashing of teeth. But don’t worry, the Next Big Thing will soon emerge.

                  • Point taken. I do get carried away (and frustrated).

                    How about this:

                    From ’79 to ’96, every year was the hottest year on record, and in ’96, the theory of global warming was compelling and plausible! Some ‘climate scientists’ extended this trendline into the future, and predicted the coming apocalypse. They have been exposed as silly clowns. The period of stability has lasted longer than the warming period, and it turns out that ’79, the dawn of the Satellite Age, was not a reasonable baseline – not at all. Live and learn! Please.

              • “Viewed in this framework, the pattern of atmospheric circulation for summer 2015 as a whole (June through August) favored a low September extent. ”
                You did read your own source, right? The sky isn’t falling. This was driven by wind patterns, not higher temperatures. Is this news to you? And, by the way, you did notice the reference to the record extent in Antarctica, right? First paragraph. Right? Funny, I’m scratching my head, too. You asked as question: How come? The answer was right in front of you.

                • ::: slapping forehead with palm :::

                  Yup, read it, very interesting, and to quote, “…led to a pattern of warm winds from the south over the East Siberian and Chukchi Seas, promoting strong melt and transport of ice away from the coast.” An increase in warm winds (as in higher temperatures) blowing over the Arctic ice cap and melting the ice. News flash. Increasing temperatures melt ice.

                  • Record extent in Antarctica. (See first paragraph in your source.) Astonishing recovery of VOLUME in the Arctic, in the past 2 years, which defies explanation. But let’s focus on Greenland. And it’s a change in the wind pattern, which — follow me here, I know this is tricky — is not to be confused with GLOBAL WARMING. Indeed, GLOBAL WARMING cannot explain the data! That’s why we stopped referring to GLOBAL WARMING, and now use a squishier term.
                    Think about this, if you would: From ’79 to ’96, every year was the warmest recorded! Get it? Then, we reached a period of stability, which was continued for 20 consecutive years — longer than the warming period. And all we can say is ‘Golly, this is da 4th highest temperature recorded!’ It’s the 4th highest in the past 20 years, too. Get it? And, here’s another really important point: Is it SIGNIFICANTLY higher, or are we splitting hairs? The trend is what matters, right? There hasn’t been a trend for 20 years, and counting.
                    What if the dawn of the Satellite Age happened to occur at a particularly cool period, which didn’t stabilize until 1996? What would that look like?
                    If you keep slapping your head, you’ll go blind! Oh, wait…

          • Ahhhh but….. It may well be that “settled science” is “consensus” and vice versa. Even the concept of “settled science” seems a bit spooky – smells of closed little minds with rock hard atrophied brain matter.

            • I have seven patents. They are based upon science. What science means is, you may have the same tools or compounds as I did, and following my protocol, you will achieve the exact same results. This is not consensus but science. But I suppose if you take enough drugs and receive great grants from the US Gov, you can write anything. I wrote a white paper concerning the drought in the Central Valley of California. Not ONE news paper would print it, and it was Endnoted from valid sources but one publisher stated, that is not all to it. So I asked him this questions. Europe and North America only 10,000 years ago was covered with 1 MILE of Ice. What caused the ice to melt because there were so few humans, Where did the water go when it melted? How come we are NOT underwater because of that large ice pack? He did not answer but sat back in his chair and said nothing.

                    • Your LAST sentence is what has them very very worried. Our Armed forces have been reduced to nothing in man power. And the LAST poll in Military Times (published by and for the Military) stated 85 PERCENT ARE AGAINST OBAMASSSSSSSSSSSS NOW couple that with 100 million people who are armed in the US, and about (notice the word about) 25 million Vets who have been trained. We may lose many people but our vast numbers and fighting a Guerrilla War Fare such as we did against the British, well it does not take a mental genius to figure out who will win in the long run. AND the people (men) who stand by obamasssssssssss most likely will also visit the 72 virgins only to find out the virgins are MEN

                    • Yes and NOT with the 223 but 7.62, 30.05 and Sabots. If you remember the incident at Bundy, the feds had snipers on a hill. They thought it was grand so they could pick off Americans from a distance. What they did NOT realize, a few “team”s of former Military went up the hill and seized the weapons at weapon point. No one was injured, but it shocked the living poop out of reid’s boys to even think something like that was possible. Also cameras were on station with streaming video to show the world what was happening. In the back of their van (feds) they opened it and found a MINIGUN with a sh..t load of ammo. Needless to say it was never put to use when exposed. His cattle were returned, and the feds retreated. Everyone was armed but did not pull their weapons out, the only weapons out were the feds. Then reid had a poop fit and so did his son by saying, “this country is a country of LAWS” Well that worked for about 1/2 a day until it was exposed reid wanted the land to sell to china for a solar plant. The cattle usually step around the tortoises because BOTH have been living together for over a century. So that was again an out right lie. Then reid was smacked down by his brother for giving the family such a bad name. Like his brother.

    • 97% of the world’s greatest eco-activist prognosticators are convinced that there has simply been a “pause” to the attendance, and that by sometime next week the numbers will explode to hundreds of thousands if not millions, putting all of us at risk of missing a really great rally.

    • Your “us and them” thinking reveals your ignorance. Did you mistakenly think that thousands of peer-reviewed climate scientists had anything to do with organising a rally in relation to a visit by the Pope. Climate models have been progressively improved and become more accurate. Your comment is incorrect in its broad suggestion as well as it premise.

  2. When is the Hysterical Left going to get the message..

    The myth/con that is Human Caused Global Warming (But There Hasn’t Been Any Warming In Decades) has had it’s 15 minutes of fame..

    The vast majority of Americans couldn’t care less…

  3. lol, this is hilarious….. see folks , these kooks are in the minority but with their fake twitter accts and fake fb accounts they seem to be much larger…. These people are just fringe kooks… Every sane person knows this whole man made global warming is just a ploy to take more money from the producers in this country…. Its obvious…. none of these kooks can answer why the grand canyon was formed, or the great lakes , dc under ice a mere 10k years ago, finding fish fossils on land…etc… I keep asking them if it was those damn dinosaurs driving around those evil suv’s….lol

  4. “This is the most childish form of magical thinking. It’s
    like asking kids to clap their hands so that Tinker Bell won’t die. For
    activists, climate change is a simplistic and self-centered morality tale that
    pits our greed and wickedness against the Utopia of a kinder, gentler, fairer,
    better world. In fact, climate change is a complex and fiendishly hard problem,
    with huge uncertainties about what lies ahead and even greater uncertainties
    about effective policies to address it. The activists should do themselves a
    favour, and grow up.”

    MARGARET WENTE, the Globe and Mail

  5. Maybe the thousands were turned off by the climactically changed weather: perhaps they feared drowning being so close to the rising ocean; perhaps they feared being caught in one of those HUGE and FREQUENT Atlantic Ocean hurricanes they all predicted would start some 10-15 years ago.
    Occam’s Razor would suggest however, that the more rational among us have caught on to what would be pure silliness if it weren’t so ‘politically’ driven.
    And the Pope? We can safely just simply ignore the poor old man.

    • I would think that the satellite data compiled by the UAH team, since ’79, speaks volumes: No upward trend for about 20 years, and counting. Not just any 20 years — a 20 year period that has witnessed the explosion of global capitalism. See, up until ’96, when the satellite data pointed towards ‘global warming’, the satellite data was ‘pure science’, It turns out that ’96 was a fairly severe El Nino year, and the arbitrary starting point (’79, the dawn of the satellite age), was, indeed, a low point… Fast forward to 2015, and what are the warmists saying? “There are more important sources to consider than the satellites.” What a sad commentary on humanity — so willing to believe nonsense, particularly when the nonsense implies that they are the Truly Enlightened, and their mission is to Save the World. It reminds me of Jonestown, for some reason. I’ve grown a little jaded.

      • Totally agree, of course. It isn’t only ‘humanity’ that is sad, it’s much worse. It is SCIENCE itself and it’s practitioners that has failed us and this when we very BADLY need good science and technology to keep the species together and viable. Climate ‘science’ devalues all of science and that’s very dangerous for humanity.
        I am reminded of the 1660s and the founding of the Royal Philosophic Society in London (Hooke, Wren, Newton, et al). When deciding on their ‘motto’ they came up with ‘Nullius in Verba’ and etched it into the stone lintel over their entryway. The exact translation is ‘Nothing in Words’, but the meaning is ‘don’t believe anything unless it is PROVEN by replicable experimentation by other scientists and researchers independently. Otherwise, it’s just words’.
        True then, true now…that’s science – always true, never dependent on feelings and hopes.

  6. LOL subhuman liberal traitors, truly a worthless bunch of parasites. So the PEDO-POPE has no real sway, that’s why he is trying to import human garbage to build up his churches free falling attendance.

  7. I was there with my hidden dog sh1t dispenser. Two 28″ long PVC tubes loaded with dog turds. Button on belt actuate door on bottom of vertical tubes hidden, strapped to in my inner legs.

    I let a few go while in dense crowds. No one notices for about 5 minutes.

    Then…..Ewwwwwww! “My God! What did I step in?” they ask.

    I had a GREAT time!

  8. Isn’t telling a lie a sin? So who hears the Pope’s confession? By the way the Pope needs to spend more time trying to fix things with the church. Attendance is down in general. The anti-capitalist has all his clergy looking for more money because collections are way down, and after his visit I believe that the money problems will increase significantly.

  9. THE FAKE POPE RECENTLY GAVE HIS FAKE PRIESTS THE “POWER” TO FORGIVE ABORTION. Which means that EVEN THOUGH JESUS CHRIST TOLD US that HE would forgive us of EVERY SIN EXCEPT BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE FALSE CHURCH has been doling out their “forgiveness” like those papal indulgences of long ago. AND ONLY GOD can FORGIVE sin a man can PRAY with you and even pray FOR you, but it is GOD that forgives sin. And ONLY God.

    Matthew 12:31

    Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

    1 John 1:9

    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    Matthew 12:31-32 [Full Chapter]

    Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

    GOD ALREADY SAID THAT HE WOULD FORGIVE US ANY SIN SHORT OF BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST!!!!!!!!! WHO NEEDED THIS FALSE PROPHET POS TO TELL THEM THAT GOD FORGIVES SIN? Man, cannot forgive ANYTHING.

    BUT NOTICE WHAT THE SCRIPTURE ON CONFESSION ACTUALLY SAYS!!! 1 JOHN 1:9, It says that IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS it is NOT THE PRIEST THAT FORGIVES US BUT IT IS GOD. THE POPE IS A LIAR.

    The pope thinks that commenting on homosexuals is him judging them. God judged homosexuals in the bible and had the penalty written down for those who afterward would claim him as their GOD. Why doesn’t the pope know that the bible is God’s judgement against the behavior of man? Thou shalt not seems abundantly clear.

    Jesus said to call no man on earth “Father” for we have one “Father” and He is in heaven.

    Matthew 23:9New International Version (NIV)

    9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.

    The pope’s church calls priests “Father” and the pope “Holy Father”. Jesus specifically said that the glory of being called “Father” BELONGS TO GOD AND GOD ALONE. Why does the pope think that he can usurp the glory of God for himself.

    The pope tells us that the mission of Jesus Christ on Earth was to “BRING PEACE ON EARTH’, his church tells us this every Christmas. Yet JESUS CHRIST warned us not to think certain things about him or his purpose in coming. One of the things that Jesus WARNED US NOT TO THINK was…..oh, let’s just read it shall we?

    Matthew 10:34-39New International Version (NIV)

    34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not

    come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn

    “‘a man against his father,

    a daughter against her mother,

    a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—

    36

    a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

    37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

    The pope and his church tell you that he is the MEDIATOR BETWEEN MAN AND GOD. The bible says that there was indeed a “mediator” but has a different take on who that might be.

    1 Timothy 2:5New International Version (NIV)

    5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,

    Oh, so the pope is USURPING THE TITLE OF JESUS CHRIST by calling and allowing himself to be called “the Mediator between man and God”, since the BIBLE tells us that the mediator is JESUS CHRIST.

    The pope tells you to pray to Mary, Peter and a thousand other saints.

    Exodus 20:1-5 tells you not to have other God’s before the Lord Almighty and not to bow down to them nor serve them.

    AND JESUS SPECIFICALLY TOLD YOU TO PRAY NOT TO MARY BUT TO THE FATHER.

    Matthew 6:6

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

    Add to that the fact that we were told also that whatever we do in WORD OR DEED to DO IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST! And now you know why we say “Father in the name of Jesus”,

    Colossians 3:17

    And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

    Why does the pope tell you to pray to someone OTHER than GOD?

    JESUS LINKED BAPTISM TO SALVATION IN JOHN 3:1-8 AND MARK 16:15-20. Romans 6:3-5

    The WORD “baptism” in the greek, which the N.T. is written in, is the word “Bautizo”, Bautizo MEANS TO BE COMPLETELY IMMERSED IN WATER. When JESUS was baptized in MATTHEW 3 HE WAS COMPLETELY IMMERSED IN WATER. The false church of COURSE had to change even this! SPRINKLING is not BAPTISM. The APOSTLES told you that there is ONLY ONE BAPTISM, in

    Ephesians 4:5King James Version (KJV)

    5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

    BUT IT ISN’T THE BAPTISM THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH PERFORMS!!! Peter, whom they lyingly claim as their “First Pope” SPECIFICALLY TOLD YOU HOW TO BE BAPTIZED!! When the Apostles received the Holy Ghost in ACTS 2:1-4, they came down onto the street still speaking in tongues, people mocked them Acts 2: 13, leading to PETER giving the FIRST SERMON WITH THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. At the conclusion of this sermon which goes from ACTS 2:14- ACTS 2:36 the PEOPLE TO WHOM HE PREACHED asked PETER what they needed to do to be saved like the Apostles and disciples.. THEY WERE TOLD TO BE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. The false church does NOT baptize you in the name JESUS CHRIST but rather in three empty titles, none of which are NAMES..

    Acts 2:37-41King James Version (KJV)

    37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

    38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

    40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

    41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

    The BIBLE declares that any church which prohibits people from MARRYING ( priests and nuns) AND also asks it’s congregants to ABSTAIN FROM MEATS ( no meat on Friday) IS A CHURCH OF SATAN. Paul told Timothy that this church would get it’s “DOCTRINE” from DEMONS.

    1 Timothy 4:1-4

    King James Version (KJV)

    4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

    4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:

    He prophesied this to Timothy so that the Bishop could IDENTIFY the false church that arose. And you know what ELSE a “False church” that received it’s doctrines from DEMONS would do? It would LIE about the nature of CHRIST’S MISSON HERE ON EARTH. Every year the Catholic Church tells you that Jesus came to “BRING PEACE ON EARTH”, all of you without question have been VICTIMS of this HEINOUS LIE. Is it just a “mis-interpretation”? An INNOCENT MISTAKE perchance? Nope. It’s the EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT JESUS CHRIST STATED HIS MISSION TO BE!!!!

    Not only did Jesus never say He came to “bring peace to the Earth”, but it’s something that JESUS CHRIST WARNED YOU SPECIFICALLY NOT TO THINK!!!!!

    Matthew 10:34-39

    King James Version (KJV)

    34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

    35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

    36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

    37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

    38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

    39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

    Since these verses exist in EVERY BIBLE in the WORLD we can conclude that it isn’t an innocent mistake which has the POPE telling you the EXACT OPPOSITE of what Jesus said that HIS mission was!!

    THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE CHURCH OF SATAN.

  10. You know, if the “powers that be” would have just pushed a nation-wide, “pick-up, clean-up, it’s all up to you” revival with an industrial side and a public side it would be doing great. By perpetrating this huge lie, and then getting called out as a lie, they’ve set back their efforts 20 years.

  11. 400 ppm is equal to 20 parts out of 50,000. So imagine 20 people scattered about in a 50,000 seat stadium. Used to be 10 supposedly. Double a small number and you STILL got a small number. Get it? Tell you friends.

  13. Hypocrites. Not sure if these people are stupid or just ignorant. Obviously none of them ever take the timer to educate themselves about the earth’s climate. It is easier to spread lies and hopefully control the people. While the fat pope builds a bigger belly and Michelle struts with her $2300 dress.

  14. “Watch: Climate charismatics: Praise and worship team sings ‘Love Song to the Earth’ at Pope’s Capitol rally”

    Romans 1:25 “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
    “When will we ever learn…”

    • Our fellow Christians are being slaughtered in the Muslim world. Our P.O.T.U.S. refuses to aknowledge it. Our churches father visites every 35 years or so. Hey I have an idea! As the churches father and protector ill talk about climate change, that’s well within the rhelm of my expertise. Then ill go to Phila prisons and meet life long criminals Muslims and Christian. Why bother going to a childrens Hosp. or such? I understand he loves all people.I get the point. Ya think you might mention to Obama that it would be nice if he asked the Muslims to stop blowing up our people

  15. The earth is warming

    P.S.
    the Pope is a dope – a Marxist who hates Capitalism…

  16. Gee, maybe someone told the people who did not show up about the Bering Straight Land Bridge between Asia and North America that rose from the ocean thousands of years ago when an ice age gobbled up so much water the sea level sank drastically. When global warming eventually happened around 20,000 years ago, a lot of the glacial ice melted, causing sea levels to rise and the land bridge to disappear. All done without taxing carbon emissions.

  17. No one attended because almost everyone knows there is no such thing as global warming. Climate change is a scheme to tax the whole world. Do we have environmental issues? Yes. But global warming is not one of them.

  18. Letter to the Editor:
    What if there was a monumental environmental threat that you didn’t even know was happening? What if you found out it is affecting your health and that of people you know and love? What if you knew it was such an enormous problem that it has the potential to destroy our crops and trees, the soil they are grown in, our entire water supply and whole ecosystems – and that if you didn’t act, we could never turn back?
    I am not talking about fracking, nuclear energy, politics or the oil industry. I am not even talking about climate change, but instead the spraying of harmful chemicals into our atmosphere and subsequently onto us and our food supply.
    What if it came into use in a most insidious way, just as GMO foods have come into our food supply without our knowledge? What if it appeared to be harmless, but it wasn’t? And what if it were so cleverly woven into our culture that we didn’t even see it anymore? What if it were so masterfully stigmatized and wrapped in controversy that if you thought it strange or concerning, you’d be scorned or ignored? It sounds like science fiction, but it’s not. It’s happening right above you, and it’s called “geoengineering.”
    You can find articles and debates in which scientists are proposing to “dim” the sun to slow down climate change using a technique called “Solar Radiation Management” (SRM). Nasa’s David Keith is one. Their concept is to mimic the dimming and cooling effects of a volcanic eruption and existing particulate pollution made by human activity. However, it has been out of the proposal stage for quite some time and, even though officials will not admit it, SRM is already in full-scale operation. SRM sounds like a viable solution to slowing climate change, and scientists have repeated how “cheap” it is over and over again. However, it comes with a price. In fact, it comes with many.
    Global climate engineering/geoengineering programs are radically disrupting weather patterns, disrupting the hydrological cycle (causing drought in some areas, flooding others), destroying the ozone layer and contaminating the entire planet with the toxic fallout from these atmospheric spraying operations more than likely causing respiratory illness and deaths.. Climate engineering programs have been fully deployed for many years. There is a mountain of hard science data and film footage to back up this statement of fact. Just Google the subject.
    If you’re concerned, take a few minutes to view “Look Up,” an award-winning documentary narrated by William Baldwin. It is an excellent introduction to the issue of ongoing climate engineering/geoengineering.
    My only goal is that you will review what I have offered and I hope it will motivate your continued investigation of the completely illegal, unregulated and incredibly devastating climate modification programs that are being conducted on a global scale. Sign me a caring Grandfather Steve B

  19. If the science is settled then maybe we should close it down. If they’re saying they’ve reached a conclusion, obviously they no longer require funding. Continuing to receive money will only lead people to conclude they’re in it for the money. They can convince us all they’re not in this for money by refusing further grants for research that is apparently no longer necessary. So close it all down and we will see they’re not interested in money at all. Go ahead. I won’t hold my breath.

  20. I was a much better Pope, wouldn’t you agree? The current occupant has no idea the good American capitalism has done to lift millions out of poverty. His poverty is the education he received in Argentina. I had the courage to preach against communism and abortion. He is concerned about the right to life of criminals, not the innocent in the womb. He cannot stand up to 177 Democrats in the House. Are you surprised he is mute to the terror of Radical Islam and more concerned with climate change. The College of Cardinals sure blew this one.

  21. Attendees were standing shoulder to shoulder because they were too stupid to sit down. Most were there thinking there would be some free stuff to be handed out. Others wondering why the main man was wearing a dress-looking thingie. Others not really understanding the concept of climate change. And a few who happened by and stopped to see what the gathering was about. However, still more attendees than at Hillary’s rare rallies.

  22. When are these douchebags (including the pope) going to realize that this isn’t the 60’s,if it were,the hippies would be against the government,not sucking it’s a$$. Remember the vietnam war protesters? They yelled hey,hey,lbj,how many kids did you kill today? Why don’t they protest the murder of a generation of American babies? I guess they don’t care unless they are gookanese babies.

  23. We need one heck of a lot more Americans (10’s of millions more) calling, writing and electing law-makers to substantially raise our cost of living in order to change the worlds climate. A few liberals and all the Government-paid scientist peddling doom to advance bigger, more Socialistic Government is not a reason to become a “lemming” marched off the cliff to the unknown. If our environment changes as slowly as predicted, we’ll have time to adjust and make money from it as well. Nobody alive today will die from global warming. Dying from being made more poor and fighting over artificially scarce resources will definitely shorten the lives of millions more in America and Billions around the globe if current plans and wishes of a the power hungry fascist and communist wannabes advance. Obama and Hillary are poster-child’s for this movement and don’t know the first thing about sacrificing squat in the name of us, as they Preach (for big fees) to people richer and more power hungry than they are. All peas in a pod. The smallest, richest minority ready to save us from every harm but them.

  24. The country is filled with scientific illiterates, especially the millennials, who are useful idiots pols use in perpetrating this hoax. There is no man made global warming. CO2 is not a pollutant. It is necessary for photosynthesis(food). Currently it is a low 380ppm. Green houses usually maintain 1600 ppm.The MAJOR greenhouse gas is water vapor. In order conjure up a mental image of dirt and pollution, pols cleverly use the word “carbon” for CO2. CO2 is clear and odorless. This is one of many, many observable facts which discredit anthropogenic climate change. Check the literature. There does exist industrial pollution from from the East. USA has done a good job in cleaning our environment by and large.

  25. looks like a lot of rich white folk at that rally

    “Green” energy and green lifestyle is for RICH WHITE people …
    the polices that are needed to create a green energy society favor the rich whites in America….
    I thought liberals were FOR the little guy?..the minority? …
    these policies directly HURT the poor, the middle class, and the minorities in America and the world

  26. We need to ridicule these idiots back to the dark ages…I am sick of their lies…The pope and the barry puppet are shills for the carbon tax scheme in which all of them are heavily invested….Scumbags! Nice to see the contempt on the part of the general public…No longer does the office of the Vatican hold its’ former allure…

  27. LMFAO. Useful idiots. Oh and someone needs to tell the Pope to stay out of America’s business and get back into his bubble of air conditioned privilege in the Vatican. We’re not turning communist any time soon nor are we going to stop fighting illegal immigration.

  28. America is the most generous nation in the world in charity, yet the Pope is telling us we need to move away from capitalism and wealth generation and open our borders to anyone and everyone who wants to come here as well as pay sin taxes for climate change.

    Can anyone here explain to me how the hell any of that makes any sense? I guess that does explain why liberals love this Pope though…a first for them.

  29. Democrat, liberal, progressive, climate change activist, these are dog whistle/code words for baby killing, organ dealing, population control advocating (genocide) lying, domestic terrorists and traitors.

  30. Its easy those who truly believe in climate change should commit suicide, every year they are not here 8.2 tons of that most deadly (according to them) pollutant CO2 will enter our atmosphere. Come on climate-Tards show us all how much you believe, show us all how dedicated you are to making a difference.

  31. Firstly, who cares what he thinks?
    Secondly, shouldn’t he be a little more concerned with things like… uh I don’t know PEDAPHILE PRIESTS???
    Last but not least, why does it matter what his opinion is on imigration??
    Has anybody seen the massive walls that surround his little shack that he lives in??? Nothing says “I put my trust in god”
    Like 10 foot walls, funny looking bullet proof laden vehicles Etc. Etc .
    Piss on the pope.

  32. Gee Pope Trotsky isn’t as popular as the Leninist media wants us to believe. Maybe he should go back to Rome and start canoodling with some teenage boys, I’m sure he could draw a crowd of leftists to watch that.

  33. Only the human ego would say we can destroy this planet. This planet has been through a lot worse than us folks. (Not saying we cant damage it of course, but warmists only seem to attack every day folk, not the companies like BP that actually do damage.)

  34. I used to like Harrison Ford. He’s a fine pilot, and has done a lot to introduce young people to flying. I suppose he’ll have to give it up due to all the carbon he’s spewing while flying for no purpose greater than it’s being fun. He’d be a hypocrite to continue such environmentally damaging activities.

  35. Look, the National Park Service may have reported a few hundred participants, but the computer models predicted there would be between 197,522 and 204,376 present. Who you gonna believe, the NPS who are definitely being paid by the Koch Brothers or Science??

  36. Foolish people making fools of themselves and for what, a proposed conflation of a 1 degree celsius rise in mean global surface temperature over a 100 year period when the observed empirical evidence and data suggests otherwise? This is what zealotry looks like and what’s worse the politicization of the weather has allowed politicians find new ways to tax citizens for it.

  37. Anyone else remember how it was supposed to be a coming ice age in the 80’s? It’s always been “something”. Global warming is just the flavor of the decade and the flavor has already been changing to “climate change”. Twenty years from now, you will realize you’ve been had and so has your bank account.

  38. Were I Pope Francis, I would cite the statistics that show that global warming has stopped, and declare victory. Two miracles to go and he could be St. Francis the Marxist. (Since the regular St. Francis has been taken by the animal guy)

  39. What a joke this rally is! And for the Pope to give advice on the climate is also a joke, and this is coming from a Catholic. Stick to religion Francis, and also work on that big problem of priests obsession of little boys. I admire and respect the position but don’t want to hear preaching from you on things you know nothing about: climate, US economy, and our huge immigration problem. I hope I don’t burn in hell but I will say 40 Hail Mary’s just in case.

  40. Attending Washington DC climate rallies; much like eating organic food or advocating for the amnesty of low skilled/low educated illegal immigrants, is pretty much an American luxury reserved for either rich people or idle college kids.

    Working folks have other things to do.

    • Anyway — you got-a all of your sins, you know? And if you have enough money to pay for your sins, you can-a go to Heaven. But — if you don’t have enough money, you gotta go back again, you know? And, like, be born again, and, like going back-a to work, you know? And-a, you know, it’s-a real-a tough. Life–it’s a job.

  41. What university did the Pope get his degree in climatology from? When you mix religion and politics, you always get disaster. The Church of Climate Change is religion and politics united, but not real science. Ask yourself how the Earth got out of the ancient ice age it was in when atmospheric CO2 levels were 10 times higher than they are today? Obviously, the Sun is the main driver of Earth temperatures, not CO2. The Sun got us into ice ages and the Sun gets us out of ice ages. CO2 is a trace gas, less than .04% of our atmosphere. Its contribution to our warmth is so small as to be unimportant. Water vapor and water droplets in the form of clouds are the real greenhouse agents. Google *Moderating Climate Change Hysteria* for details and links to important videos and resources.

  42. Even if I cared whole-heartedly about climate change, it would be ridiculous to focus any of my time or energy on it. When a 5 dollar price increase in the gas bill can destroy your finances, you tend to forget about hypotheticals.

  43. The UN IPCC TFE.8 says temperatures are likely to only rise a few degrees by 2100, and then it says no scientific study has shown there will be any harm.
    In fact, warmer temperatures means longer growing seasons, more northern and more southern growing regions, and more rain for arid regions, all to feed a starving world.
    So to fight warming means to stave hundreds of millions.

  44. That can’t be right! NPR just said this morning that belief in Man made Climate change was on the rise! And that the Pope is totally believable and an authority.

    You know, like the other Popes who said the earth was at the center of the solar system…

  45. Maybe, just maybe folks are beginning to doubt chicken little yelling about the sky falling.
    Maybe folks now see that there are 30 thousand experts standing against the 2 thousand yelling about .
    Maybe real data is being see and not adjusted data to match bad theory.
    NO Obama, no way “all” say man caused global warming is real. Few do actually.

  46. The Pope should stick to spiritual matters. He is an ordinary man elected to his current position by ordinary men for whatever reasoning went into their decision. He has no greater wisdom than you or I in evaluating global warming by whatever name it is called. Obama is looking to the Pope to sign off on unproven “facts” and failed socialistic agendas. Somehow, I don’t think the Pope is going to help the libs very much. He is much more likely to end up causing devoted Catholics to question his teachings in all areas.

  47. With all the Climate Models and with the pope being a convert, please let me know what the average earth’s temperature will be in 2020, 2030, 2040 and 2050. I suspect after that, it will be too warm for me to live, even if I try to move to Antarctica. But, if I know what the temperature will be, I can start storing-up some ice, both for food storage and keeping cool. But please let me know what the temperature will be in 2020.

  48. Lefty LOONatic Weather Forcast…

    Sunny… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Rain… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Cool… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Blizzard… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Drought… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Windy… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Snow… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Weather… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Lightning… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!
    Warts… SQUAAAAWK… Global Warming!

    “Climate Change” is the term used after fake scientists are caught lying about “Global Warming!” Most folks call it “weather!”

  49. Global warming alarmists are religiously fanatical. It is difficult to face it when your prophetic cause of global warming doe’s not happen and so must you create the new god of climate change to fill the emptiness left in the wake of a false god. 🙁

  50. Still beating that tired old drum- more government regulation to stop man caused global warming/climate change. But if Man is the cause then isn’t the solution to control population growth? How’s the Pope feel about birth control?

  51. “Several environmental groups are planning a major climate rally that will draw hundreds of thousands to the National Mall on Sept. 24, the day Pope Francis speaks to Congress and is expected to address the public afterwards.”

    Ditto for wrongness on the earth’s temperature predictions.

  52. IF YOU CONSERVATIVE MORONS LACK THE INTELLECTUAL CAPABILITY TO UNDERSTAND THE REALITY OF MAN-MADE CLIMATE CHANGE:

    KILL YOURSELVES!!!!

    PUT A BULLET THROUGH YOUR FEEBLE CONSERVATIVE BRAINS! FOR THE SAKE OF THE REST OF US!!!

  53. It’s not the belief,but the fanatics method of imposing their beliefs on others. By persecution or terror. What these people do is no different from the Inquisition over a thousand years ago. Only today that religion is ‘global warming’ and ‘Socialism’. Their belief has led them to block all other logic from their brain. They are no different from religious fanatics who say you are going to Hell if you do not believe as they do. But unlike Christianity,Socialists,and Global Warming Advocates persecute and terrorize. And will never stop until everyone becomes one of them.

  54. Well….I was in Washington, D.C. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We were at the mall…..three times….I didn’t see a single sign or hear a single word about this rally. We were at the Lincoln memorial for at least an hour, at the Vietnam memorial for at least an hour. Then back to the reflecting pool and then on down to the the Washington monument. There was no rally? We heard the pope speech as we were photographing the Washington monument on Wednesday but I didn’t see any climate protesters anywhere. Then on Thursday we were back to see the pope at 7th and Pennsylvania ave. and then back to the mall to see the Korean War memorial. If there was a climate rally then they phoned it in because I didn’t see any of it. The mall was pretty empty except for joggers and photographers.

    • Of course climate change is real. It has been real for millions of years. Of course you, by being a warm body, are affecting the climate as are billions of other live organisms. Of course we need to reduce pollutions of all kinds as much as we reasonably can. We also need to reduce the doom and gloom crap that is out there. We don’t even know the weather report to be reasonably correct in four days from now. Multiply that by three hundred years worth of days and predictions get awfully inaccurate. Meanwhile plant more green plants that not only give us more oxygen but sequester carbon. Don’t make me quit driving my car while you still drive yours. That is what China wants to do to us.

  55. global warming…global cooling…whatever they wanna call it, i’ts still BRAVO SIERRA!

    And I’m very surprised that Pope Francis of all people. should KNOW that

    JESUS CHRIST CREATED THIS UNIVERSE AND CONTROLS THE THERMOSTAT! HELLO?

  56. One of the most powerful government-inspired movements could only rally a couple hundred stooges? Sure there’s climate change. Always has been and always will be. Exclusively caused by you d me? Yeah, and the Easter Bunny and Sasquatch, too.

  57. Ultimately, the establishment GOP will facilitate the demonic-rat agenda to shove climate change down our throats.
    Once the political demographics of the US is changed permanently by AMNESTY, there will be no one to stand in the way of the progressives & liberals.

  58. Turd World parasites, breeding like roaches and destroying tropical forests are the biggest threat to the environment! Now they are invading Europe. The Pope should sell off some of the Vatican’s stolen artwork to feed the illiterate masses he seems to love so much.

  59. our congress gets a lecture on immigration, when the vatican is walled in and on lock down 24/7. we get a lecture on charity when the vatican sits on smeagol’s hoard, and we get a selfish ‘help the poor’ lecture when th e capitalism of this country has produced more jobs in the 20th century than any other system…especially the socialist/communism of argentina , pope francis’ turf

  60. Too funny. What a bunch of dolts. The only that would fizzle quicker would be their attempt to explain AGW in a debate. Can’t do it. They’ll just walk away when confronted with facts, or they cry about polar bears. It is also amusing to hear what they think will “solve” the problem.

  61. Hahaha. That is too funny. Besides, it’s global overpopulation that is driving environmental problems. And the Catholic Church is directly responsible for adding to global overpopulation. The Pope should be promoting birth control if he’s so worried about climate change. World’s biggest hypocrite. Next to Obama.

  62. This just goes to show you that we good, hard working American people are tired of being told by the left that we are conniving, greedy slobs who owe the world a living. We have all worked very hard for the success we enjoy and the rest of these whiners could do the same if they weren’t just a bunch of lazy lay abouts who spend their days hanging out on street corners leaning up against a post.
    Rich in New Mexico.

  63. Sob! Sob! Americans just hate Mother Gaia and will continue to make dirty air, filthy water and genetic malformations because of this hate.
    Hey, it makes as much sense as the nonsense that the “global warming” crowd spouts as their religion. Perhaps Dear Leader can go and find another glacier thats been retreating for more than a hundred years to stand in front of as further proof of “global warming” or more of the idiots can go to the Antarctic in summer so they can almost get their ship sunk by the ice.

  64. This Pope is a lying homosexual communist, who is too stupid to know that climate and weather are synonyms, and that the weather has always changed…..is GOOGLE really lying about the definition of CLIMATE???

  65. “the activists represented a spectrum of causes and religious denominations, from young evangelicals to Black Lives Matter leaders.”

    Not to mention a spectrum of political views ranging from the far left to the extreme left, and a variety of opinions expressed that ranged from the merely ridiculous to the idiotic.

  66. Climate changes ever day in, 1487 AD they were growing grapes for wine in LONDON it was so Warm and the French passed laws forbidding wine to be imported from England Now we have Chicken Little in the WHITE HOUSE SAYING THE SKY IS FALLING (STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES

  67. Whenever I encounter a warmist who is droning on about global warming or climate change, or whatever it’s called this week, I always inquire as to what they are PERSONALLY doing to combat the situation.

    When they tell me the evils of coal, I ask if they get their electricity from coal would they go off the grid so they aren’t part of the pollution problem? I ask if they are aware that landfills create tons of methane gas, and do they not contribute to it by composting?
    I ask what do they use to heat their home in winter? Do they use a renewable resource?

    The most common response I get is “HUH?” or “I’m raising awareness.”

    The warmists always want someone ELSE to solve the problems they see. They would be the last ones to actually change their lifestyle and sacrifice in some way to combat what they see as a problem.

    At least I compost and burn a renewable resource in my woodstove. The garden loves it and I heat my home here in Vermont for under $500 a year.

  68. HOW much will taxes need to be raised on working families to stop the weather from changing?
    It seems like most people are too ignorant to know the definition of Climate is THE WEATHER CONDITIONS prevailing in an area……Don’t retarded socialists know what a synonym is? Well climate and weather are synonyms, morons…..

  69. Someone please tell this commie pope of the UN that this scam was exposed about 8 years ago, that’s why it’s no longer called global warming. This is another great sign, now all we need is for a down pour all day Sunday in Philly and we’ll know for sure there is a God!

  70. If everyone would throw a tray of ice cubes out their back door everyday for a month or until the ice cubes don’t melt, the temperature would cool.
    We could call it cold seeding, or backyard cooling. Just a thought!

  71. An all black back-up singer crew? Well, alrighty then.

    And to think that these folks actually took the time to practice this song.

    ‘The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global
    warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s
    not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.’

    ‘At a recent news conference in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive
    secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the
    goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological
    calamity but to destroy capitalism…”

    http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/021015-738779-climate-change-scare-tool-to-destroy-capitalism.htm

  72. The globalists are using the real of imagined global warming or environmental issues an a means to get control of political power,if you give it to them you will most certainly be sorry and regret it but by then it will be to late,once they take they dont give back so proceed with caution.

  73. Only hundreds not hundreds of thousands showed up – and look a the absurdity of it, they are like pegans dancing to GIA worship – it looks like Tammy Fey and Jimmy all over again – hey the Pope is also making a progressive rock LP – NO KIDDING.. they look so damn foolish, if only they new how moronic they are being… SAD when the Rock Star Pope is a bedfellow with our Muslim leader..

  74. By pure coincidence, I happened to be a tourist visiting the Smithsonian on Earth Day at the National Mall in DC, You would not believe the trash that the Earth Day folks left behind! I suppose their uptake is that “someone else” will come along to pick up their plastics, bags, & styrofoam food containers. If they are so vigilant, why aren’t they bringing your own recycleables? Why can’t they properly recycle the plastics, etc? Because Earth day is just a reason to party for them.
    I, on the other hand, do not believe in man-created climate change. But I believe in less waste, and keeping our neighborhoods clean. Funny thing— I hauled my water bottle around all day and refilled it.

  75. This Mental illness brought out the Looney MOONBATS on this one. But I don’t see Standing room only Participation as advertised 200,000 people. you can bet George Soros is behind this Foolishness !!
    Eat Meat and protein up for the next Moon Mission, or be a vegan and go back to the Cave with Hallucinative Mass Hysteria! Global warming MOONBATS fly around in the Moonlight catching bugs, while the rest of civilisation colonises other planets after going to that moon !!
    Saw the Video , Craig, Boy o Boy did the MOONBATS show up for this one !! WOOOHOOO CRASEY !!!
