Hello all. I am new here. So...what is this group's etiquette protocol?

From one ember to another, thanks.  LOL

Don't worry about it Don. I know you don't mean anything bad. My fire is at the dimming ember stage anyway.

Dan, l knew what you wanted to say after I read the article.  I wasn't trying to pour water on your fire.

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on September 11, 2016 at 11:38am
Donald, you are correct.
Comment by Donald L. Engel on September 11, 2016 at 11:28am

Daniel, the article doesn't talk about climate change, itself.  It talks about people's reaction to news of climate change.

What is the effect of presenting facts, to a polarized population - a big part of this article concerns anthropogenic climate change as well as other facets of our society's polarization.

I just bought my first electric lawn mower and think it is pretty cool. I like the technology. It runs on 2 40v Li batteries and has 2 smaller blades. It is rather quiet and I don't smell like gasoline after mowing the lawn.

Ruth, that's funny and serious! I'm glad I checked out the article about Climate Inaction Figures.

'“It’s worth noting that even though the arms and legs look like they’re articulated, they don’t actually move — for maximum inaction!” says Norton. So, while these Inaction Figures might crush environmental legislation in the House and Senate, in a toy chest battle against the likes of Batman and Spawn, they would not stand a chance.'

And: 'The figures will soon be available as freely downloadable and printable 3D files'!!!

Climate inaction figures.

Play at Doing Nothing with Trump, Palin, and Other “Climate Inactio...

Kids tired of superheroes? Now there are supervillain climate inaction figures, powerful enough to destroy the planet.

Here's my favorite.
