    The hurricane seasons are just going to get worse and worse due to global warming. Time to get off the fossil fuels is NOW! Face it Schuylkill County, demand for coal isn’t coming back. It’s an INFERIOR product. It’s garbage.

    I have a math equation for you canary. Since you’re so smart I figured you can help me with it. CO2=P(people)*S(services)*E(energy)*C(carbon). Now, I’m no mathematician like you but one of those factors must be zero. I would much rather it be carbon. What say you?

    You’re definitely no good at math. To get to zero carbon emissions one of those factors would have to be zero. Either people’s, services, energy or carbon. Because if you multiply the factors together and one is zero it cancels co2 out.

      Actually very good at math. Just don’t really care about what you post, just as long as it’s not spam. Your comments only make sense to you.

          A minor hurricane during hurricane season does not and should not make people think about global warming, if that’s even a thing. Maybe it’s time to put down the liberal playbook and use your own brain before it turns completely to mush.

            Canary, 8 out of the last ten years have been the hottest on record. Warmer temperatures create warmer waters which storms like hurricanes need. I think climatologists know more about this than you do.
