Mother Nature is Mad

A couple of Hurricanes
Floods
Wild Fires out of Control
Earth Quakes

Mother Nature is pissed.

But I don't think you can blame Obama, Trump or the Russians.


How about a catch all thread for all of the above.

A couple of recent hurricanes, each worse than the proceeding one, first katrina, than Sandy, now Harvey and Irma.

I agree, mother nature is pissed, pissed we are contaminating her atmosphere and she is about to make us pay.

I was thinking the same thing. And, that is not a "steady increase in speed" either.

Have you heard the latest regarding looting in Miami? Certain liberals just cleared out the electronic section of Walmart in Miami but completely left a lone the work boots section right next to the electronic section.

did I understand this correctly- that someone was blaming climate change for the earthquake(s)?

Looks like 190 mph is about max speed. Irma and Harvey were huge in their impacted areas.

oh yes...I know this .

I read some sound bite about how Elizabeth May (leader of our 'Green Party' up here) made some statement about the Mexico earthquake being linked to climate change...


but of course, on further inspection, it's a non-issue and she was misquoted. Can't trust anything you read on social media for accuracy- and apparently especially not if it's my ignorant redneck cousin saying it.
