This is one of the more concerning parts of this president. Doesn’t give a crap about climate change. The 1890’s?

Trump today on climate change: “There is something there, man-made or not. I mean, there is something there. And it’s going to go, and it’s going to go back and forth. But there is something there, but again 50 years ago it was brutal. 1890s were brutal. You have different times”

Makes sense, when ever I'm grilling my foster kids over some crap or other I always have a bone saw, you know, just in case.

Before, or after the statue has been dismembered?

Multiple media outlets picking up a story from the Cherokee Nation in the US calling out Warren's claims and DNA test as inappropriate.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.huffp...8b587060a1/amp

Quote:
. Chuck Hoskin Jr., secretary of state of the Cherokee Nation, said Warren was “undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship,” Hoskin said. “Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong.”

I don't see this as a win for Warren. It's a distraction from much bigger issues the Democrats could be on Trump for.

The Democrats need to get some leadership races announced soon and start building a party. It's a collection of individuals right now who are spending a lot of time talking and trying to steal individual spotlights. I do not see evidence of a lot of listening.

I can't say I know a lot about Warrens. Can someone give examples of where she used her aboriginal bloodline to give herself certain credentials or sympathy?

I personally find it dumb when people who didn't grow up in the culture talk about their blood like it matters. My wife has aboriginal blood and even looks like she could pass as an aboriginal, but she is the first one to tell people that she never endured the hardships and racism of being aboriginal and never bothered to obtain status. I know a few people whiter than me with aboriginal blood generations ago and try to claim the heritage.

Likely wouldn't cause exctinction. Time to plug one of my favourite websites!

https://impact.ese.ic.ac.uk/ImpactEarth/ImpactEffects/

Worst-case scenario: An object with a diameter of 600 meters (the largest estimate for this object), made of pure iron, striking rock, at a velocity slightly greater than is actually possible (72 m/s) would have the following effects at a distance from impact of 1000 km.

Crater diameter: 31 km
Crater depth: 899 meters

Fireball below the horizon, no thermal radiation felt.

Seismic shaking will arrive 3.33 minutes after impact. At 1000 km it will be felt indoors by many, outdoors by few during the day. At night, some awakened. Dishes, windows, doors disturbed; walls make cracking sound. Sensation like heavy truck striking building. Standing motor cars rocked noticeably.

Ejecta will arrive 8.24 minutes after impact, at 1000 km it will be a fine dusting of ejecta with some larger particles.

The air blast will arrive 50.5 minutes after impact, some glass windows may shatter.

Time for political pundits to blame organizations/agencies which which they disagree for negative outcomes of the impact: 1.66 hours

Time for other political pundits to claim that it's 'too early' to place blame: 1.6669 hours.

It would actually be as low as 1/32nd to as high as 1/512th, if we’re going by the 6-10 generations thing.

Which doesn’t really matter, since there the article you posted confirmed that you were wrong about her using it to her advantage.
