You seem to don't like the "prevailing values" at all.

Prevailing American value is that hate speech is not acceptable behavior and has no place in civil society.

You screech every day against YouTube bannings, PC culture etc.

What you call "PC culture" is a prevailing American value and you hate it.

Out of 235,248,000 Americans eligible to vote, only 2.87 million voted for Trump.

That's nowhere near "prevailing value".

It's a product of retard power, facebook memes, Ben Shapiro and electoral college .

A very loud, hateful minority.

Great majority of Americans are decent people, unfortunately you're not one of them.

I think you vastly overestimate the level of public support for speech codes. The Humanities departments in the universities and the entertainment and internet industries do not comprise the majority of the public.

The vote count in 2016 was 62M for Trump vs 65 for MHRC.

Kind of like when people hear something preached about sea level rise, and pass on outright false stories of 10.6 inches or sea level rise since 2016, and idiot people believe it.

These are people that haven't seen an ocean in years, yet blindly follow this BS info, based mostly on emotions, hacked science (fiction) and political bias.

When it comes the Climate Change "professional" scientists, they're all over the map when it comes to "outcomes" of it. Some are very conservative, some go off the deep end on claims, even in the near term.

So, the IPCC and their MSM sheep picks (pays) the scariest and most hyped doomsday outcomes to get the idiot, non-informed public's attention. It's the only way a scam like the New Green Deal could even hope to gain any traction.

Climate change is scientific fact.

You’re susceptible to the manufactured doubt industry.

I think AGW is actual... I just don’t care.

Yes, climate change is a scientific fact, in that the climate has NEVER stopped changing, in millions of years.

And there's no such thing as "consensus" in any scientific fact.

Consensus is still just a judgement or opinion, an not unanimity.

Earth, moon, wind, fire and water are scientific facts, not "consensus".

P.S. your wunderground link is so old, that most all the links it references at the bottom are non-functional, like many of their claims.

The manufactured doubt industry observation stands. You’re part of that or susceptible to it. It is part of the idiocracy.

In 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report concluded, "It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century."[9] The largest human influence has been the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. Climate model projections summarized in the report indicated that during the 21st century, the global surface temperature is likely to rise a further 0.3 to 1.7 °C (0.5 to 3.1 °F) in a moderate scenario, or as much as 2.6 to 4.8 °C (4.7 to 8.6 °F) in an extreme scenario, depending on the rate of future greenhouse gas emissions and on climate feedback effects.[10] These findings have been recognized by the national science academies of the major industrialized nations[11][a] and are not disputed by any scientific body of national or international standing.[13][14]

If you read the article and understand what he said you would know the main idea he discussed is how idiotic ideas arise and why they are accepted as gospel in some segments of the general public. Quite applicable to some people here wink

Not personal idiotic ideologies.
