Dear Mystery Entertainers,
Things got brighter in the 1950's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6bHs8Vm3EQ
Prefer to leave you on a happy note.

Nostalgia is fun, but fantasy. Viewers might entertain themselves seeing if they can spot the one non-white person in the 7 minute video. Evidently there was a shortage of them in 1950s America.

Dear landmark,
I noticed that too. Certainly the 50s film was one of WHITE fantasy containing RACIST BLIND SPOTS.
BLIND SPOTS are also observed in the glamorous people portrayed by magazine illustrators in the 50's.
BLIND SPOTS with the 40-50's pinup girls. Josephine Baker was supposedly the first major
black movie star. Introducing: Josephine Baker https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josephine_Baker
A fictional account of the childhood of the entertainer Josephine Baker containing some
basic true facts is "Ragtime Tumpie" illustrated by noted artist Bernie Fuchs.

For you, Babe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCNfgDOlnyA
Sincerely,

Historical data maybe imperfect, but it remains the only unbiased way to measure risk and make assumptions about the future.

Nostalgia, it’s even better than you remembered Smile

It’s in choosing which data to include ... for example:

The environment is not improving... call for the head of the EPA to resign.

It’s not a blindspot. You can’t see your blindspots. There is usually a disclaimer about stories taking place once upon a time in a land far away ...

"Should We Chill Out about Global Warming?"

"In his Breakthrough essay, Pinker spells out a key assumption of ecomodernism. Industrialization “has been good for humanity. It has fed billions, doubled lifespans, slashed extreme poverty, and, by replacing muscle with machinery, made it easier to end slavery, emancipate women, and educate children. It has allowed people to read at night, live where they want, stay warm in winter, see the world, and multiply human contact. Any costs in pollution and habitat loss have to be weighed against these gifts.”

(ecomodernism or I would say 'capitalsim' for those here who absolutely hate it.)

In the second essay,

"Boisvert begins:

“How bad will climate change be? Not very. No, this isn’t a denialist screed. Human greenhouse emissions will warm the planet, raise the seas and derange the weather, and the resulting heat, flood and drought will be cataclysmic. Cataclysmic—but not apocalyptic. While the climate upheaval will be large, the consequences for human well-being will be small. Looked at in the broader context of economic development, climate change will barely slow our progress in the effort to raise living standards.”"

"Boisvert comments: “A headline like ‘Despite climate change, rising food production will save millions of lives’ isn’t great click-bait, but it would give a truer picture of a future under global warming.” He adds: “Global warming won’t wipe us out or even stall our progress, it will just marginally slow ordinary economic development that will still outpace the negative effects of warming and make life steadily better in the future, under every climate scenario.”"

Isaac Asimov did a series of "Greatest Science Fiction Stories in the Year XX." One of the stories had to do with dissatisfaction in the present causing time to go wonky; A family gets a group photo, but when it's developed, the children are older and there's a different woman standing next to the man, a woman shoos away a full-grown Lab that keeps greeting her, years later she adopts a puppy which she raising to adulthood and then it vanishes on her, she realizes that she shooed away her own dog! The narrator reaches the conclusion that we are so worried and upset at the present, that we are tearing time itself apart! Isaac points out that the story was written and published in 1953, a time we currently think of as a quiet, happy time before the turmoil of the 60's.

Just not assumptions that cause the gov't to control, raise taxes and intervene in citizens daily lives for something that is "assumed" and yet to be proven.

To be clear, are you arguing that climate change isn't happening or that it is happening but it doesn't really matter?

Those are two entirely different positions.

I don't think I've ever argued that climate change isn't happening.

Immoral?

Pesky kids. Actually thinking they have a right to be concerned about their own future. How DARE they?

Oh my. These poor kids. Anyway, I really wish we would have some Global Warming here in the Northeast. This weather is horrible, cold and snowy on April 17th with the high in the mid 30's!

Show me where one has a right to a stable climate system.

Useful idiots abusing the system.

The suit is brought by a radical environmental movement and turns kids into props for their cause after some brainwashing and indoctrination.

Not really something to be proud of.

What does that give one a "right" to? How exactly is that an INDIVIDUAL right?

I dunno guys.

The young are registering to vote, affecting more and more elections; and they don't care about how much fear and denial anyone is in.

History will show this time as the last gasp of the desperate, old, stupid, predominately white, greedy cowards.

Can't wait.
If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.
