Should this really come as a shock to anyone? Wonders if anyone will pin him down on exactly what is causing the climate change, in his opinion. This attitude, combined with Trump's cuts to an alredy bare bone agency, will likely mean that our condition only worsens.

You are conflating pollution with global warming, presumably deliberately so. You know better. The two are not the same.

Overabundance of greenhouse gases + stripping of ozone layer = smog = pollution.

Do you see the correlation now?

Frankly, anyone who thinks pouring tons of particulate matter and excess gas into the atmosphere doesn't effect the climate is fooling themselves. Of course, in Oklahoma, we already knew Scott Pruitt was three kinds of a fool.

OK but what do you think of Trump's anti-science agenda?

Again those aren't related--CO2 has nothing particularly to do with ozone depletion. Smog is heavily dependent on an overabundance of ozone, which is why the United States did so much to clean things up in the '70s and '80s. Los Angeles is much nicer today than it was in 1975.

China will get there, but more slowly than we'd probably like.

I'm not aware of one...we were talking about CO2 != pollution.

Moving the goalposts is a laudable if disagreeable tactic though.

Do you mean the science behind what makes a man and what makes a woman? That's pretty settled science there.

If returning to the OP is moving the goalposts so be it.
CO2 is clearly pollution. I'm sorry you have some kind of idealogical fixation with not believing the science.
And now you are going to claim that the science isn't settled. well sorry but there is no doubt that CO2 is causing the mean temperature of the planet to rise.
As for what makes a man or a woman you seem to be confused on the issue of sex vs gender identity.

it never fails to amuse me when you make grand pronouncements about science that are utterly wrong

Well Weaselboy has a 2000 year old book that says being gay is bad, so he knows he is right since he has god on his side. All that science showing that gay and lesbian brains are actually measurably different than straight men and women is clearly just the work of the devil.
