Global warming is not about individual choice. It’s caused by carbon pollution from industrial scale fossil fuel use. Unless we stop burning fossil fuels at a global level, we are doomed.

The humanitarian crisis in Syria was caused by America. Let me break this down for you, since Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, or whichever faux liberal you listen to will just keep deceiving you.
After we illegally invaded and toppled Iraq, millions of people fled their destroyed nation, many ending up in Syria. Due to the increased population and scarce resources from draught spurred by climate change, people in Syria began going hungry. After subsequent years of population growth and declining crop production, the populace became angry and began revolting.
Into this tumultuous situation, the US government organized and staged a failed coup against Assad. Prior to this, Syria was the most progressive country in the Middle East. Women could own property, attend school, people in general enjoyed many liberal freedoms, and Syria was a vacation destination. Europeans would go on holiday and walk the beaches in bikinis, Syria was a nice place. We tried to overthrow Assad and failed. This spurred a civil war that has festered for close to a decade, killing and displacing millions. Syria is now an absolute hell hole, on the brink of being overrun by Islamists.
When people use “atrocities” from Assad as justification for us to get involved, it just shows how ignorant they are. We should have never staged a coup or tried to overthrow Assad, just as we should have never invaded Iraq, or gotten involved in Libya.
