    Having just spent 2 weeks in the California epicentre of American progressive politics, with a media that is foaming at the mouth with derangement over Trump, I can report that the cross section of people I met (from Mexican hot-rodders to a district court judge) seemed to be a long way from unhappy with the results he has achieved. They all expect Trump to win this year. I asked a lot of people, but not once did I hear "Bernie/Elizabeth/Joe will win".

    The economy is incredibly strong, unemployment non-existent (beyond people who can't or don't want to work) and there is a palpable sense of "can do".

    No... I believed it. That's the trouble with media and the internet. There's no accountability.

    Lol @ the Democrats. Can't even run a primary in one State without ****ing it up.

    They really are a shambles and have no chance whatsoever.

    not fake at all. There's also Boyan Slat who is cleaning up ocean plastic waste. No awards for him either.

    Unfortunately such awards have been reduced to meaningless virtue signalling by the organisations that manage them.

    Brilliant speech today by Trump.
    Not that you'll read about it in our mainstream media. Instead they've decided to concentrate on that childish looser Pelosi's petulant response.
    What is wrong with our media today?

    Indeed. The majority of "climate science" funding goes towards predicting the future via computer models, very little towards understanding the carbon cycle or the natural mechanisms that both stabilise the effects of atmospheric gases such as methane and CO2.

    www.sciencealert.com is typical of the AGW propaganda industry, with a rotation of scare topics. The permafrost scare gets a run every year and was last brought up in April 2019.

    Although abrupt permafrost thawing will occur in less than 20 percent of frozen land, it increases permafrost carbon release projections by about 50 percent," said lead author Merritt Turetsky, head of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research in Boulder, Colorado.
