In Topic: Why Should I Vote for Trump?

Hasn't Trump spent his entire life compromising with people that he disagreed with? Also, he generally hasn't been compromising with people during his recent run, he's been trying to secure the nomination....which he did. In politics people generally try to demonize their opponents, and Trump has been demonized more than any of the others.

His entire Middle East policy is a complete 180 approach from what we've been doing. So instead of trying to implement govts. or systems over there that share our beliefs, he would rather focus on working with people who share our goals of minimizing terrorism. That seems like a good example of compromising with people you don't necessarily agree with but realize can benefit you.

It's kind of weird you would bring that up since that's what he's spent his entire life doing.

The ability to compromise with anyone that disagrees with you without demonizing them would be a start.

It seems that the GOP has lied to you again.

The supposed manipulation of data by East Anglia and other scientists in the Climategate affair also proved to be completely unfounded, as we have written twice before.

Climate skeptics claimed that leaked emails between many climate scientists around the world showed there was a coordinated effort to inflate the global warming signal in temperature data. But several separate investigations, including by the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspector General and the Environmental Protection Agency, found no such wrongdoing or manipulation.

Right, but they've been caught adjusting temperatures up so I was just asking if you knew what the adjustments were for the readings used to proclaim those records.

I'm not saying temperatures aren't rising, or that humans don't play some type of role. I'm saying I'm hesitant to believe the claims made by people who alter readings o make sure their predictions are accurate. I don't think we can really know our impact because our understanding of the various factors is so limited.

The Arctic is set to become a geopolitical battleground in the future. The warming of the polar ice cap will likely reveal large untapped natural resources. The US estimates that about 15% of the world's remaining oil, up to 30% of its natural gas deposits, and about 20% of its liquefied natural gas are stored in the Arctic seabed.

Additionally, receding Arctic ice would enable faster global shipping routes.

By 2030, the WSJ notes, the Northern Sea Route will be passable to shipping for nine months a year. The route could cut down travel time between Europe and East Asia by as much as 60% compared to current routes through the Panama or Suez Canals.

Global temperature rise
All three major global surface temperature reconstructions show that Earth has warmed since 1880. Most of this warming has occurred since the 1970s, with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years. Even though the 2000s witnessed a solar output decline resulting in an unusually deep solar minimum in 2007-2009, surface temperatures continue to increase.

How much did they have to adjust the temperatures for them to break records?
