Not surprised. Traditionally the Carolinas never gave a damn about black folks....so you know those in prison not even considered. So sad. Im sure it's a couple of white folks in there too. But

There are more black men in prison than whites. The laws don't apply to the two races the same. White cops can murder our children one day and they're back on the job the next; business as usual. We NEVER read about BLACK cops murdering WHITE children at ALL!!! They damn sure wouldn't be going back to work the NEXT day. We'd be reading about them taking their last meal before their execution. These floods are absolutely horrifying. Poor blacks are suffering the most. There are probably a few...

Well, I don't think it's the government that charges you for electricity, natural gas, gasoline, or any other form of energy. So, if anyone has anything to gain by lying about climate change, it's Big Oil and all of its agents and representatives.

The difference between weather and climate is a change in the probabilities. Under one set of climatic conditions the probability of a storm of a certain severity might be 5 times in 100 years. Under different climatic conditions 20 times in 100 years. But there would also be changes in other probabilities like record hot springs and summers. The bad thing is if that if the rise in CO2 is triggering this then not in hundreds of thousands of years has CO2 risen so fast. We are in a new...
