I heard that temperatures are rising on Mars, also. The Martians must have been driving SUVs all over the place, but the rovers haven't spotted them for some reason.

LOL...

But tens of thousands of airplanes with jet engines that spin at over 50,000 or greater revolutions per minute do fly all over the world daily. Each one of those engines create an intense amount of heat which they blow out the back of their engines. With 2 to 4 engines per most aircraft, we're talking a major amount of heat being pumped into our atmosphere daily.

But nobody ever seems to mention their effects on global warming.

Because it's only we the serfs who are supposed to change out lifestyle. Our ultra-powerful and rich overlords have exempted themselves to preserve the luxuries to which they have become accustomed.

Those who toil daily in dense traffic to provide the luxuries for the elites are the ones who always bear the brunt of edicts from on high.

Ahhhh... it's good for thee (serfs)... but not for me (ultra-powerful and rich overlords)...

Sounds like another liberal double standard... but it doesn't even work for all the liberals... only the elite calling the shots.

You are right. One set of standards for those in charge and their friends, another for everyone else,

The elites always exempt themselves.

look at kim Jong un and his well fed corpulent self, versus the starving North Koreans.

Well, remember when Obamacare first came out? All of Congress were exempt from having to join... everybody else was forced to get it and taxed if you didn't... except the elite Congress persons!

They claim they were all put in the same health plan but I never saw the actual plans.  If they make enough they can bypass health insurance and pay cash.

Congress' illegal and egregious Obamacare exemption, explained

by Michael F. Cannon & John Malcolm  | September 05, 2017 11:17 AM

>>>Congress' ongoing failure to repeal Obamacare means ordinary citizens will continue to suffer that law's rising penalties, wage cuts, reduced choice, rising premiums, eroding coverage, administrative burdens, and collapsing markets, even as members of Congress enjoy special exemptions and illegal subsidies that spare them from the burdens of that law.<<<

I’ve heard two vastly different things about it.

I've heard the opposite as well.

So when you have two entirely opposite stories, it's sort of hard to discern which is true and which is false. Usually the source helps discern partially that matter, but it's also sad that our society has dipped into the deep end this far that they're crippling our logical points of view any more!
