phishrace: Drone video below was shot near me in the south bay earlier today. South San Jose. The weird part is that the air quality wasn't horrible compared to the last two weeks. The smoke is up high and the marine layer is down low. The hellscape that is my neighborhood is shown at 30 seconds.

PunGent: AdmirableSnackbar: Maybe people should start taking climate change seriously and stop whining that the Green New Deal is too expensive.

Lol...no.  No, no, no.

People don't give a shiat about the environment.

Which is fair, since the environment REALLY doesn't give a shiat about us.

/the planet will keep spinning
//whether or not we're here to enjoy it is up to us


No offense, but that's the stupidest thing anyone's ever said. Ever. The fact that the environment doesn't care about us is EXACTLY why we should be defending against it.

That doesn't work in chaparral, like it does in a colder moister climate, like your mom.

California has put in many times the carbon emission the last few days than all the factories in the world.

Europos: BafflerMeal: Germany quite literally just tested the nation-wide "world is on fire" sirens just a few minutes ago.

Now that was utterly lame in my edge of the woods. Air raid sirens set to minimum volume for like five seconds. I was expecting a bit more from a DOOM alarm.


Ours were pretty good. Like two rounds of the Morlock's air sirens in The Time Machine (1960). But I have to say the local churches compete every day on volume. (We have three that fight for dominance daily)

The end of America is not the end of the world.

We still need to see a temple in Jerusalem.

Trump is far too stupid to be the Anti-Christ

The Great Apostasy - 2 Thess.
2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits [c]as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

Ooo, a "your mom" joke. How clever, original, and cutting.

I'm guessing you're just too stupid to get the joke. Not guessing actually; I've read since of your other posts.

You advocated raking in chaparral to cut down on wildfires. Maybe you're the stupid one. Just guessing.

Are you American? Are you new to fark? You're arguing with a person who agrees with you, you just don't seem to get the initial joke / reference.

/ hint only a stupid person would suggest taking a a cure all for CA wildfires
// a really stupid person
/// also loud and narcissistic, and orange


That was my point. The rest was their outrage over a silly joke. The fact that they were so outraged over such a dumb joke was childish, and makes it funnier to me, but their point was still stupid (I'm not convinced they were joking about the raking). You white-knighting this clown is totally smart though.

Tyrone Slothrop: Here's what the end of the world looks like: the sun expands, and the atmosphere burns off. The oceans boil away. Then the Earth disintigrates as the sun engulfs it. Luckily, it's highly probable all life on the planet will have died off much earlier than that, due to human greed and stupidity.


The world will be just fine for hundreds of millions of years after humans have disappeared ( which will be soon).
