      +Pug Lee yeah sure thing. You know what else is very real? The earth going through natural heating and cooling periods. Politicians are profiting from it. We arent any hotter now than its ever been in the past. Get off the juice.

      +A Ghost In The Machine just because it won't happen in your lifetime doesn't mean climate change isn't as real as black jesus.
