    Australia is on fire
    We have spring like temperatures right now in Canada... like, May weather. Not simply unseasonably warm but the wrong fucking season.

    and you want me to take an article titled "End the Climate Gravy Train" seriously?

    From the "about us", section.

    "CCD does not believe in consensus science".

    "Consensus science", is a buzzword invented by right-wing propagandists.

    Like "micro vs macro evolution", was made up by creationists.

    That there's consensus only means multiple scientists have actually tested the claim, and the results of that testing agree.

    It doesn't mean a fucking opinion poll.

    Screaming that it is an opinion poll louder and louder, and with more mouths, won't make that true.
    Which oddly enough, is actually the strawman deniers want to paint real science as.
    They like popularity contests when THEY win them.

    Fuck that site, and fuck you, you fucking fascist drunk.

    The effects of anthropogenic climate change are becoming hard to ignore. You might want to look at the actual science instead of the Alex Jones talking points, there, @Marso.

    I don't need to look at the science to know that it's real. I live in hot, hurricane infested Florida and it's getting worse every year. We KNOW that it's real.

    Which is so weird, since he's always claimed to have learned everything he needed to know about Islam on 9/11. How did he not learn anything about radical islam that day? :chris:

    I fucking am. Sure, it's raining like usual here in Portland, but it's also a solid 5-6° C warmer than it should be and I'm going around without a jacket.

    And that's what you get for living in Portland!

    It never occurred to me to use regular pie crust on the bottom and puff pastry on top. I routinely make both, depending on whether I want to make a pie or a turn-over, but never thought to mix and match.

    It's the standard method for pies here, gives you a sturdy base to hold onto and contain filling, but a light crispy top.
