they've been talking about that for a while.
mostly aimed at oil/gas companies that have a contrary view.
Threatened to sue them for paying for opposing scientists to do research and obfuscate the "settled science" of anthropomorphic climate change

while I do not believe that Trump is a fascist, he is certainly inspiring some very nationalistic feelings, and I don't like it.
that and I think he's a jackass.

lol, more like all 30 years of it.

Remember, at the turn of the 19th century they were heralding the coming ice age and pointing to the last 200 years of famine and terrible growing seasons in europe as proof.

I used a open flame propane heater and I could only stand it for a little while in the garage.

I put a 90%+ in my garage. It has its own 330 gal propane tank, drains into a bucket.

Awesome heat, quiet and odor free.

I also have 1 1/2' of blown in insulation in the ceiling and 9" in the walls. After the winter, my tank is still at 35%

It never got below 45* this winter.

I bought a kerosene torpedo heater for cheap at the beginning of this winter and it heats my 30x40 uninsulated garage with open trusses good enough I can be out there in a sweatshirt. It's noisy, but gets the job done.
