In 1970, the year of our first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.

It's time we told these democrats what we think of their false global warming claims.

No one has ever proved it even exists.

All this global warming sea level rise tree hugging has to stop.
Everyone knows this Nimbys are faking it just to stop development of the quarry.

Please don't blame it on Democrats. I'm a democrat and I think it's time to call these "Green Gangsters" what they are. They are liars, terrorists, uber selfish and very much in need of some psychotherapy and an education in economics. They are driving our city into irreversible poverty and disincorporation. We've got to elect Council people with common sense and enough of a backbone to stand up to these weirdos.

The democrat Nimbys made up that stuff about cliffs eroding in Pacifica and buildings being demolished just so they could stop development. Also, aliens have eaten our brains.

Anonymous democrat: do you think climate change and sea level rise are lies?

Not op, but 1058 does have a point.
Nimbies cry and cry that we're under attack from the invisible sea level rise monster, yet there is not a shred of research that backs them up.

The nimby whiners in this town use sea level rise to stop any development they like.

Show me one inch of pacifica that has been hit by sea level rise.

That's what I thought, nimbies.

I'm no NIMBY but when you say there's not a shred of research about sea level rise, you make a fool of yourself.

Please cite some "verifiable" sea level rise facts, not conjecture or theory.
