Re: “On Edge

They are illegals, they need the boot as they are taking jobs from american citizens. Uber is a perfect example, hiring a lot of Brazilian illegals in SF, displacing potential US citizens.

Re: “Lizard Vision

Sea level rise misused again in this story. Miami the poster child of sea level rise, google NOAA tides and current, click on Florida, Miami, ZERO rise since about 1960 when they finally started to do something about ground subsidence due to pumping of water and diversion of surface flows. San Francisco, 430 sq, Km are sinking into the bay, the ocean is not rising. Crescent City , the ocean level is falling, not from less water but a rising coastal range. Relative Sea Level Trend9412110 Port San Luis, California is interesting and shows the effect of land going up or down pretty clearly.

Re: “Lizard Vision

A long story most of which is a gross distortion of reality. The lizard problem is not climate change, it is human destruction of habitat and disease. It is colder than it was in 1000 AD, colder than it was in 4500 BP when the arctic was ice free in summer, colder than it was in the Holocene when temperatures were as much a 5 degree fahrenheit warmer. it is warmer than in the depths of the little ice age and it has been warming , thanks to the sun, for 400 years.

Re: “We're Not Going to Take It

Every one of the school shooters was a nut case, known to family, the cops, the medical community and in some cases the courts who did nothing to force treatment or make sure the person was kept harmless. The reason is pretty simple. the left has made it impossible to treat mentally ill who refuse treatment until they actually kill someone. Than in the bizarro world of reality, the court forces them into treatment, when declared well puts them on trial and than sends them to the chair or life in prison. Why not treat them before they kill somebody?
