 Starts with a pinkbike pod next that giraffe will be strutting around with a redbull helmet on messing up the precious eco system more than climate change!

 @MisterJones: global warming is a hoax. We're just coming out of an ice age. The global climate isn't meant to be unchanging. Climate always changes. Good job drinking the koolaid

 @mbaillie: You mean the same evidence that was wrong hundreds of times?

Despite all the hype around the global warming computer models and climate science predictions - reality has not confirmed the often repeated doomsday claims. Stefan Molyneux speaks with William Happer about the flaws in the climate science models, obvious errors which have been overlooked, the demonization of CO2 and the implicit bias within climate science.

William Happer is a professor at Princeton University in the field of atomic physics, optics, and spectroscopy. He is a Director with the CO2 Coalition and served as the Department of Energy's Office of Science Director under the George H. W. Bush administration. Dr. Happer will be speaking at the “Global-Warming: An Inconvenient Lie” conference in Phoenix, Arizona from December 2-4th, 2016.

 @HerrVorragend: I just got sick of it after believing all the "scientists" and the "news" channels. Climate Doomsday is just as credible as the Biblical Doomsday hysteria. It's about time people wised up and asked real questions about the validity of all this "climate science". To be skeptical is to be scientific.

If 10% of your energy sector was shut down by a foreign country, we would call it a terrorist attack. But liberal/green governments do it and we just shut up and suffer?

 Not even 29" wheels will help him roll over things fast enough to get away from that mofo!

 are giraffes.... dangerous? i'd never thought about it before, i don't know!
  • 16 0
 No not really. I have encountered them on foot a few times before. Generally they just keep their distance. Very placid. As with any animal though they can be unpredictable. More often than not they will flee a threat as oppose to going on the offensive. Having said that, they do have a killer kick.

 Giraffes are crazy, I couldn't imagine one of those mothers just walking around our city. It would be comparable to living with dinosaurs.

 Wanna know why Giraffes necks are so long ?

Because their heads are a long way from their body.
