President Donald J. Trump has been pushing "Buy American," but data shows Americans aren't spending much money on anything right now, regardless of where it's made.

Ryan Kephart Well if basic living costs weren't so high we'd be able to spend on other things. The middle class isn't protected by anyone anymore. History repeated. Blah.
Elizabeth Barajas Montoya Of course we aren't spending. The future is uncertain with trump still trying to figure out how to enrich himself...and his viscera guiding his judgement.
Erin Merrill Walloch If we weren't scared shitless that the market will crash again, unemployment will rise, we lose our health care, and still won't have a living wage maybe we could be buying made in America products.
Jerry Balkenbush Trump has broken almost everyone of the Ten Commandments, you know nothing of the bible, money is your God, you're more like King Herold than Jesus, Evangelical Christians still voted for you and they say it's all part of God's plan!
Peggy Deis Gas prices are going up, so I barely have enough to get back and forth and keep food in the house. So no extra spending from me!
Nissa Higgins Ummmm because our president is 3 days away from ushering in a legit apocalypse and of we're smart we're buying survival kits and sprouting beans.... 😂😂😂😂
May Radakir "Buy American" says the one who is doing all his purchasing in China, borrows money from the bank in China and use the money he borrows to purchase steel from China to build his hotels.
Vicki Buckley I am beginning to wonder who has been deceived. Buy American absolutely does not apply to trump except in a "Look At Me, I am the Greatest" and if I say this, I am Great (his favorite word).
Mike Whitehead CNN social media is getting ridiculous. They post BS every 15 minutes. Why do people keep reading this crap, let alone responding? Some day we will all know that we made a difference in the world by wasting our time on Facebook. Get a life, people.
Robert Stanford walk into a wal mart, home depot or publix; 90% of the employees in that store, at that time, are not making a livable wage... the executives are taking home 40-70k annually with bonus, and the ceo's of these superstores make 70-130 million annually with bonus... so, basically about 10-15% of the people employed by these corporate giants can actually afford to shop at the stores in which they work...
Lyn Johnson You would think his supporters would be out spending big bucks to clothe, feed, house, etc themselves as they follow him around to these rallies 😂😂😂
Curtis Payne Yes the unemployment rate is low but the under-employeed rate is as high as ever. Blue collar workers are drowning, suprise a 3% raise every few years is not keeping up with the COL we actually make less $ every year. Retire never, just drop dead at work one day & get tossed in the dumpster like trash.
Anthony Riggio Who's going to spend money when everything is about to slide downhill under Trump's Insane Administration. The impending Government Shutdown is not helping that matter.
Rosalynd Ra Ra Bryant What was the tip off that we are not shopping? That fact that major chain stores are closing, or that fact that people are working 2-3 jobs to survive, or that people can not afford the basic things for living like shelter & food!
John P. Dungan Mortgage, bills, increasing tax rate, car note, groceries, ... Who has money left to go shopping??
Lawrence Byrnes Waiting for the Trump-fraud-crash. It will come. In his history it always has. America isn't America anymore. Just a monarchy, plutocracy [kleptocracy], kakistocracy, theocracy, and minority tyranny. Gullible and gutless CNN of course only cares what the advertisers think.
Robert St. Clair Yeah, because we are all saving money for our summer vacation trips.... why not look at the data and cover an honest news story CNN....this isn't a "new" trend
Marcel La Brecque Wages don't match inflation. No more pensions, market driven 401k's over priced higer education, steep intrests rates, high costs of living, insane healthcare costs. Top management salaries have rose 1000% in 30 years, while average Joe's has rose 11%, with inflations at 40% over that time. Cars, homes, education, raising kids, daycare, utilities. It's nuts. The rights gonna blame the left, the lefts gonna blame the right, and nothing is going to change cause they've made it Red Vs Blue to stop the attention of their theft and destruction of the American dream and people that keep this wheel rolling.
Gloria Reyes Garcia The effects of the financial crisis are still being felt, the 08 financial crisis has been has been the worst economic disaster since the Depression.
Jazz G. Lopez Maybe they are saving their money because the president apparently want some international war ...so everyone will go out!!! Maybe to México 🇲🇽... ups 🙊 sorry there will be a big wall!!!! 😜 I hope everyone can to understand the black joke!!! lol 😂
Johanna Scheffer Notaro Yet Visa numbers are up because people are using their Visa card more. You need to watch a real business network to find the truth.
Catalina Rowe Aguilar Key point here is this country is not made up of just americans or american citizens. What you see is immigrants scared of losing family or being deported. So they are scaling back on how they live. Then you have the immigrants that have been detained and sent home or still being held. Those immigrants like it or not. Contribute to americas society in all aspects. Forcing them out of the country or locking them up. Will only make our economy worce. Only a few months onto these 4yrs of hell on earth and the reprecussions are already being seen. Not good since we still have more than 3 & 1/2 yrs to go with cheeto head. Things will get alot worce.
Randy Manning Could've of fooled me today at the Tangers outlet . Couldn't find a park no where and lines were out the door. Let's don't speak of the interstate traveling...bumper to bumper
Kimberly McCormack Trump has room to talk...when almost all his products are made in China and with child labor. Is he going to bring his products back to America??
Terry Thorne In true republican style the stock market will crash in oct/nov of 2017. All those 1% saving money off shore, real Americans saving as much as they can or so many are just trying to make ends meet.

Every so often, a photograph cuts through the grim cacophony of the war in Syria and pierces viewers' hearts

Bridget Habedank Huff Worst humanitarian crisis of our time, with innocent people being tortured, starved, bombed and murdered daily for years on end....and you people find it appropriate to argue politics, celebrities, typos and "fake news" lunatic conspiracy theories? How can you watch photos, videos and documentaries of this and remain so cold and heartless? Photos of dead children and you feel nothing?? When you wonder to yourselves how the Holocaust was possible; how so many once decent people did nothing to help others; think about how photos of dying humans mean so little to you because you find it easier to tell yourselves they are not like you and not your problem....
Brian Rabineau I've hated this picture since the first time I saw it. This is a regular occurrence. It somehow became moving when a photographer put down a camera to help?? If this picture had been a fellow Syrian running with the child? Who the hell cares that the photographer became part of the picture! It's irrelevant.
Jennifer Resendez Zamora Not true. The blast knocked him down and he lost his camera. He got up and he was looking for it that's when he came upon the injured child and picked him up and put him into an ambulance. He doesn't even know if that kid made it he never saw him again.
Brad Green I think most of y'all are reading to deep into the title. The man put down his camera and was captured rescuing a boy..geez!
Manny Marcelo Whatever! The most relevant question here is when will all of these insanities end?destroying humanities due to greed, religious differences,pride, and misguided nationalism.
Nancy Lynn Baker So all of you who are denigrating this image. Trying to make it less than it is. Would you do the same to a picture of firefighters carrying someone from the wreckage of the twin towers? I think not and hope that when you are sitting in chuch in a little while, and I know you will be, remember this.
John Roscoe Sorry but it's impossible to simply take it on faith anymore that any photo like this from Syria is not a staged production. And that's YOUR fault, CNN.
Jason Little "Syria photographer pulls down his camera and picks up injured boy." How do you pull down a camera?
Jennifer Crosby-Meurisse All of this is so sad. Absolutely heartbreaking. Praying for humanity. Praying for these poor families and children. 💔
Vincent Alex why is this happening in syria?? what is it the US & the UN isnt doing anything ?? they let the people dying especially the kids. its really pityful to see them like that.
Jennifer Resendez Zamora He did an awesome thing by the way. He found his camera and helped the kid get to safety.
Richard Heilman Almost as genuine as Leo, Kim K, S McGlaughlin etc flying around the world in private jets saving the planet.
Wes Tyler So asad is this isis making faking news looks like humanity to me.
Max Connor Robins Looks like Dave Grohl. Guess he has another confession to make.
Danny Lee Shucks....#MistyMorning.... story real or otherwise.....
Anntoinette Parker Thank goodness. I guess he decided against the other photographer's position which was to keep taking the pictures.
Jorge Millie when he dropped the camera to pick up the boy , who took the shot of him and the boy
Ray Guerra ahahahah Another Fake CNN Story. The people of North Korea have been suffering way longer than the Syrian people. I think it's time the USA start taking in North Korean refugees. These people from N Korea know first hand what it's like to deal with the oppression of liberal Leftist Socialists Democrats. Just like in the USA. They Need President Trumps help.
Issac Reid These comments are surreal. Staged. John Roscoe a blind Nan could see this wasn't staged
Carmine Genovese And I suppose he just happened to run past the camera that he set down, just as the shutter, somehow, clicked, or whatever they do. Right.
Rob Lewis This is the 7th time you have run this story and it is the 7th time I will tell you he did not pull down his camera he put down his camera.
Sherry Taylor This photo tugged at my heart strings bad. It should be Time's photo of the year if they still do it. So emotional.
Abdul d'Israel Toto'o Perpetrators like obama shall be haunted and if not,his children and u s as a whole
Lillian Maxie Disgusting to be arguing over this. If he helped a child, that's a good thing. Grow a conscience.
Prince Bunyore Let us all remember this is a result of a nation being overthrown #AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you tell the difference?

Sarah Ahlgren I think it's more that people buy the balencigata BECAUSE THEY CAN. A vulgar display of greed and avarice.
Jason Michael Smith The people who buy it are just dumb. The people who made it are actually bad people.
Albin Biju Well I'm pretty sure no ones gonna touch this bag and see if its made out of leather when the rich person walks with it and it does look like the IKEA bag from the outside. So it is an absolute waste of money, well for an average person, it sure is.
Dave Torio With $2,145 you can buy and replace your $0.99 Ikea bags everyday for 6 years. That's the difference I see.
April Nethercutt Mccarthy That bag is big enough to hold $2,145 dollars worth of pennies and still look horrid 😂
Souvik De Trust me there are many fools in this world that will pay for it. Never underestimate the stupidity of Humans.
Kim Kimes If you're a beautiful woman inside and out your bag can be from goodwill and no one would care...simply put..
Jenny Wagner-Robertson They don't look anything alike. Quite different quality and materials.
Siobhan Scott I love the Ikea bags, I use them for my laundry! 😂
Heidi Edwards Miller This is why I will never spend a lot of money on a bag!
Daniel Rodriguez At least they're using reusable bags. Look on the bright side I guess.
Yvette Miller Yeah...unfortunately I know some people who would pay for this bag. #familymembers
Lisset Rodriguez No difference, there both a sore eye.
Justine D. Simone anyone who would pay over $2k for a plastic tote is an idiot- fancy name on it or not.
James Emerson Sparks There's a sucker born every minute.
Patricia Leal Marcia Vieira essa Balenciaga a gente pode comprar. Kkkkkk
Jimmy McKinney If you'd pay over $2 grand for this ugly bag you either have too much money or a screw loose
Sharon Clarke LOL! I bet the IKEA bag carries more laundry, though!
Jon Kirkham .....but does it fit into the supermarket trolley as good as the IKEA version? 🤔
Nychol Knisley I would just rather carry a rice bag then to pay an absurd amount of money for that bag. To each his own.
Muhammad Malik Don't like it? Don't buy it. But don't knock someone else's hustle because you weren't smart enough to separate rich people from their money.
Lisset Rodriguez This thing is not a purse, it's a tent case or a Comforter bag.
Russell Stambaugh I know the difference.the folks that buy the .99 cent bag have sense enough to know it's worth that.the idiots that pay the outrageous price for the same bag are brainless suckers that have more money than intelligence .thats the difference in the two bags.
Thomas Skybakmoen If you can't it's not for you

Emirates Airline is cutting back on flights to the United States because policies introduced by President Donald J. Trump's administration have hurt bookings.

Jerry Balkenbush You do have to thank Trump for sealing Obama's legacy, by being so god awful in 3 months that most of the country should realize they had it pretty good for 8 years.
Akram Natheer Those policies were not for security but to give the pathetic American Airliners that were complaining about competition from the Gulf competitors including Emirates. We all know one thing, American or United don't stand a chance to compete with Emirates on customer service
Oswald Kay Chisala The irony here is that Trump's America-first policies are hurting the US brand and economy. If he plans on running America like his hotels, someone better create a political AirBnb.
Zee Alharbi I fly every 6 months to the Middle East for a month then back to the USA! Now, great! There is no way in hell I'd fly with any of the USA airlines!
Trevor George I said it 2 months and I'll say it again, once you interfere with tourism you touch the heart of the US economy.Americans do not travel,95% air travel are immigrant related,hold your seats,this is the chain of a ripple effect.......Recession soon come....
Arthur R. Byrd My issue is the ridiculousness of Deities/God. The idea of Deities (God, Yahweh, Allah, Brahma, Jehovah, and over 2800 other major Deities, is based on myth, superstition, and ignorance (refusal to apply basic knowledge). The idea of God is simply a placeholder for undiscovered knowledge. The people who gave humans Deities/deities believed in human sacrifice (especially virgins in volcanoes), that the earth was flat, that the earth was the center of the universe, that famine was caused by displeasing Deities/deities, that is ok to conquer and kill other tribes, etc. I grew up in religious ignorance, but became an atheist at age 19. I have been an atheist for the past 50 years. I pen a book on my views/philosophy. "Black and Atheist Too: My Journey Living Through Discovery of the Non-existence of God", by Dr. Arthur R. Byrd. See my website: blackandatheisttoo.com
CW Scott I suspect the Tourist industry will suffer substantial losses in the coming years. If I lived in another country I wouldn't have any desire to travel to a country whose government is seemingly governing on fear & hate of outsiders. I simply wouldn't feel welcome or safe.
Christina Ann So all the trickle down economics( money that people spend here at hotels, restaurants and goods)that conservatives love will be damaged... but hey making America great again.. you know those middle eastern people are all terrorists 🙄
Jeff Bowerman I hope all foreign airlines start dropping US flights. I'd love to see some airports lose money because of Trumps racist rhetoric.
David Vasseliou Trump is the worst thing that ever happened to our country.
Haider Vajid I think Trump is doing what he said before, Americans first, Americans should prefer to travel with their own airline, similarly jobs should be first given to Americans then other Nationality, picking garbage job should be reserved for Indians, in Pakistan crooks and thieves Zardari and Nawaz Sharif gave all the lucurative airline routes to Turkish, Emirates airline against heavy bribing, we are hoping Imran Khan in shape of Donald Trump to put the country on right track.
Joan M. Edwards This will hurt so many businesses economically. Such a ridiculous policy to inflict on this country.
Chris Mason Why doesn't anyone boycot emirates airlines because of their home countries actions towards woman? Why not. Because people r hypocrites. Avoid emirates. Like the plague.
Kathryn Murray Newsflash. Tourism to America is 42% down. I'm not spending one RED cent in America. In fact, our last flight, our group of 8 paid $30 more for each flight and spent an extra 45 layover so we DID NOT havd to land in America. It was principles and money well spent.
Jay Flo You go Trump make America Great Again. Screw CNN and the corrupt liberal media.
Pamella Lumsden The entire travel industry has been suffering, ever since he started his immigration bans..Lot of airlines losing, because people are just scared to travel, especially if you are not an America Citizen. A Green Card does not guarantee entry back into the country, one is a the mercy of the immigration officers. So many people don't travel anymore. This creates losses for the travel industry.
Ramon Moats Yeah hey when are the liberals going to let us all take up sharia law. Honestly at least now beating your wife would be legal. So democratic you might be on to something.
Beth Slagter Aladdin Told Princess Jasmine He Could Show Her The World EXCEPT The United States! In All Seriousness Most People Don't Want To Be Hassled Like Their A Criminal When Trying To Come To The States!
Kate Hunter Shame to lose one of the best airlines out there! Very happy I don't live in the US anymore.
Ralph Monk I don't care about their airline. I care about the safety of the American people and we finally have a president that will stand up for us and isn't scared of public opinion. LOVE TRUMP!!!
Coleen Anne Offer more discounted flights from Canada and increase your tourism. Forget about the U.S. They can drive here to fly out
Mo Tiger Just booked my next travel to the US from Africa on Emirates. I'm happy to check in my laptop and will continue to fly Emirates over any other airline.
Massimo Mascoli We already lost hundreds of millions of dollars in tourism .... Trump: "Global Warming is a hoax created by the Chinese" ... no dude ... Trump is a hoax created by the Russians.
Lydia A Materie Yes and thanks to Trump, it's going to hurt everyone, not just international flights.
Ola Akande If you've ever flown emirates, you'll never want to use another airline ever again

BREAKING: Erin Moran, best known as Joanie from the '70s sitcom "Happy Days," has died at 56, police say.

Annabel Bickel Walker Happy Days was such an iconic and huge part of my generation. Erin Moran as Joanie was absolutely perfect. She nailed the ever-exasperated younger sister and the optimistic love-filled teen. Such sad news. May she Rest In Peace.
Eric Stinnett Come on people, leave Scott Baio out of this. I am as Liberal as they come and wouldn't wish death on anyone's family. We are better than this and there are better ways to channel our political beliefs.
Brian Peralta Joanie no! Rip hope you and Howard (tom Bosley) are enjoying heaven right now! I wish chachi aka Scott baio died instead!
Dave Durkin But Scott Baio gets to live? Thats just wrong.
Melanie Luongvan Joanie...Nooooo!!! Loved her in Happy Days. So sad, God Bless you Joanie, I wish you could have found your happiness. You will not be forgotten. RIP. Condolences to her family and friends.
Jamie Fox She was an iconic part of my childhood. This is such sad news.
Trevor Jensen While this is sad, there are still 8 months and 1 week left in the year. Let's not start asking 2017 to, "Go away." Every year will have it's good and bad moments. On that note, Erin will be missed. :(
Helen Casey How dare you haters wish death on somebody, that is so wrong of you to say that and believe what I say that it will come back you literally and when it does don't say I didn't warn you . R.I.P. Erin Moran 😔
Lea Doucet It's sad that this has happened, yet some idiots somehow bring their other idiot friend Trump o to it. How does this relate to someone passing?? Good god people grow up !!!
Heather Jarrett It's disgusting the amount of people who are wishing Scott Baio died instead based on his political beliefs doesn't sound very tolerant behavior, does it? It's amazing to me that those who scream the loudest of acceptance for all, tolerance, love and peace are usually the ones that don't practice what they preach when it comes to something they themselves don't support.
Brandee Barrera Rest In Peace Joanie....Thanks for the memories and plenty of laughs🌺🌹🌸
Lauraine Beth How inconsiderate can people be? Erin Moran died. This has nothing to do with Scott Baio. Can't anything NOT be about #45?? May Erin RIP
Brian Fowler My two idols dead in a 5 day period, both have the same first name, just spelled differently 😔 RIP Erin Moran and Aaron Hernandez, smh.
Kim Rancifer Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy and so many more iconic shows that I grew up on..... My prayers are with her and her family!!
Marlon Moncrieffe In an eerie coincidence, Moran's co-star, Henry Winkler, has a filmmaker son, Max Winkler, and only earlier tonight, before this news, I was waiting in line to catch a TriBeCa Film Festival screening of Max Winkler's latest movie.
Elaine Moore Mott I don't know if you remember this Matt Nesbitt...but when I started diving with Mory at CSU, you called me Joanie...at first I thought you thought that was my name.
Jeff Bowerman Probably all the stress from seeing Scott Baio act like an idiot trump supporter.
Chris Jacobsen Ah the "tolerant left" - wishing that Baio had died. Pretty pathetic.
Kyle Abell I use to see her all the time she lived in the corydon indiana area she would come to the walmart there and always talk to my grandma who works there she was such a nice lady but she always said hollywood got to her and it will never let go until your broke or dead
Ai Takahashi So sad...my condolences to her family and friends. In his youth, my Father used to watch Happy Days in Japan as it spurred a big movement there in Tokyo - Shinjuku and Roppongi. The Fonz and the rest of the Happy Days crew - even Ms. Moran - with her bobby soxer skirts, influenced generations of Japanese. Domo arigatou gozaimashita...❤️
Denise Marie Albano You people who find a need to bring Scott Baio up just because he supports our President need to grow up! Who cares? This is about Erin Moran. Have some respect.
Richard Sittel She had REALLY gone downhill lately, pretty sad what drugs, alcohol and cigarettes can do to a person. She was completely unrecognizable in those photos about 10 years ago, she looked 75 years old at 47.
Rodney Bible I would really like to know why some of her, very very successful costars on Happy Days like Henry Winkler and Ron Howard..did not offer her work when she fell on hard times. If they did offer her work..it received very little public notice. I just can't believe that things got so bad for her that she was living in a trailer park.
Sharon Louise Durham The Hollywood Reporter Erin Moran, Joanie on 'Happy Days', Dies at 56 6:18 PM PDT 4/22/2017 The actress was best known for her role as Ron Howard's little sister on the '70s sitcom. Erin Moran, best known for her role as Joanie Cunningham on the sitcoms Happy Days and its spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi, has died. Moran was found by Harrison County dispatch officers in Indiana responding to an "unresponsive female" report. Upon arriving at the scene, officers identified Moran and she pronounced dead at the scene, a Harrison County Sheriff official confirmed. Moran rose to stardom on the 1970s sitcom Happy Days, in which she played the younger sister to Ron Howard's Richie Cunningham. She later went on to star in her own spinoff show centered around her character's relationship with Chachi Arcola (Scott Baio). Other credits on Moran's resume include a series regular role on the '80s romantic series The Love Boat, as well as appearances on Murder, She Wrote and Diagnosis Murder. She was remembered on Twitter by costar Henry Winkler, who wrote, "OH Erin... now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth ...Rest In It serenely now.. too soon."
Barry Bodell In regard to reference to her financial difficulties, would she not have benefitted from the Royalties derived from the rebroadcasting of the Happy Days TV shows?

RECALL ALERT: They could contain pieces of golf balls

Mike Schultz See this is why we need fewer regulations on businesses. If we didn't have so many regulations this never would have come out and this company wouldn't be losing money recalling a tainted product. I can't wait till Trump gets rid of all the regulations and we can go back to the way things used to be in the good old days, factories full of 12 year olds working 18 hour days for fifty cents a day, not having to scrap a batch because a worker fell into a vat and died, only worrying about profits and replacing the workers who've dropped dead from disease or exhaustion. Just in case some don't get it #sarcasm
Brian Tarbell Sorry guys I knew I had a bad golf game but I had no idea I hit one into a hash brown factory
Craig Kasseckert Extraneous golf ball material? What is the standard amount of golf ball material allowed for hash browns?
Eric Stinnett Dafuq?
R.A. Hottman Does Trump own this company?!! Lol!!! Great way to hide the amount of golf he plays - right!!
Daisy Cassidy Lacey Journey, for some reason I thought of you when I saw this. Maybe because I thought you might have fun coming up with silly jokes to go with it.

Lex Coop What happened did one of Trump's CEO friends give him a tour of the factory right after a trip to Mar-A-Largo?
Jesse Borison These are the risks we accept when eating hash browns in the South
Charles Wilson The FDA no longer measures golfball contamination in food. #outofcontrolregulations.
Maria Berisso-Santos Do they have their factory near Mar-A-Lago?
Iroha Alex You shouldn't even be eating this type of processed crap in the first place.
Sara Pocklington First: How? Second: the first part of the article where they tried to connect golf to hashbrowns humorously was hilariously awkward

Do you have your thinking cap on?

Rowddy Fontenot A warmer atmosphere causes increases in " evaporation " of ocean waters balancing any sea levels rises. Mother Earth produces the counter balance to anything mankind does. We humans are just not that powerful . The Sun is the power broker in our climate regulation#unbiasedtruth
Stoney Williamson I am all for true science and being good caretakers of our earth. What we have now is a science that is driven by corrupt individuals trying to make a dollar on the very air you breathe. If Gore would have had his way you would be taxed to very last cent you possess. These people try to convince you to follow the latest global cooling/warming/change or the latest name so they can make you submit to their agenda. They will jet around the world on private aircraft and have limousines waiting on them as they give a speech to collect checks for their livelihood. All the while expecting you to use less, reduce your carbon footprint, and not chastise them for producing one the size of Texas. Be good caretakers of the earth, and when they decide to rid themselves of political alliances, stop the falsification of documentation and facts I will listen.
David Wong Look at the picture what are they doing?? The caps and plastic raincoats they are wearing are potentially environmental disaster and they are supporting science that are enabling all the environmental disaster human has experienced!!!?? Science cannot be your God it is more like the devil!!!

They reject man made climate change and put out all sorts of scientific sounding articles, brochures, books, web pages, etc... and not a single one of them is a scientist. They appear to be funded by the fossil fuel industry...
Glen Martin It's hilarious and kind of tragic seeing so many of trump's snowflakes triggered by the topic of critical thinking and reasoning skills. Nobody mentions them by name but they automatically assume they are the ones being ridiculed. Wonder why that is?
Matt Abel Nobody wants to live in a polluted environment. But your comment is my exact point. Provide proof that 97 percent of scientists agree. Just because the statistic is repeated over and over, doesn't make it true. I'm not saying our carbon dioxide output is, or isn't affecting the planet, just that I have not seen sufficient evidence to confirm the claim. Specifically, the methods for quantifying carbon dioxide production, and carbon dioxide levels are theoretical, and definitely not agreed apon. The only study I've seen was years ago, and the methods for measurement were disputed. Since most people just accept global warming as fact, ironically there is absolutely never a scientific debate on the subject. M
Susan Earp Daulton If Trump says anything is fake, I know that he"s lying .. I'm more concerned about a few things such as chemical trails, manstano, and manufacturing corporations polluting air and our waters.
Michael Armstrong Sr. What makes me more angry then a bunch of lying money grubbing democrat scientist is a facebook lying onion news saying our actors have died Erin Moran from happy days gives me more concern then your liberal ignorance report some true news is she dead .
Rue Rue Hill Just another excuse to block traffic and get 5 mins ATTENTION....IT'S now a weekly event for some excuse or another! No big deal...
Bryce Landau Nothing says "critical thinking" quite like droves of sheep all wearing the same hats, protesting things they know nothing about... These are probably the same people that dumped ice water over their heads during the ice bucket challenge Facebook fad "in support of ALS research", but did nothing to ACTUALLY support the cause. But looking cute on social media is far more important. 👎🏾
Kermit M. Gray The stupidly of trying to come up with hats pretending to be brains is mighty symbolic of the left! Science is a study, not a religion.
Clark Stone Trump trolls getting all riled up again. Whatever is being done, it's working. Hey aren't you happy something has pushed Russia off the front pages, if only for a day?
Craig Goodsir Issue these caps to Trump voters. At least it gives them a brain on their head.
Jill Laufer Wow, another post where the climate change deniers and Bill Nye/Al Gore haters descend, it seems to be an epidemic across FB, active measures anyone? Sure seems like that to me. Hmmmm, wonder why they are circling, scared of the millions of folks who don't buy your BS and believe in facts and science? think so... the thing is, people who people believe in science, facts and yes, global warming are critical thinkers and already skeptics so it's like we have bulletproof vests. Or bulletproof brain hats in this case :-)
Logan Smith it is just as warm today as it was in the 1890's there is days that the temp was higher then than it is now, there are records of the 1890's that still stands today on high's and the lows are only 2 days colder then the 1890's so what's this about harsh climate changes ,
Brian Hendricks Here are 18 examples of the spectacularly wrong predictions made around 1970 when the “green holy day” (aka Earth Day) started: 1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” 2. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal Environment. 3. The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” 4. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 issue of Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” 5. “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born,” wrote Paul Ehrlich in a 1969 essay titled “Eco-Catastrophe! “By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” 6. Ehrlich sketched out his most alarmist scenario for the 1970 Earth Day issue of The Progressive, assuring readers that between 1980 and 1989, some 4 billion people, including 65 million Americans, would perish in the “Great Die-Off.” 7. “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” declared Denis Hayes, the chief organizer for Earth Day, in the Spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness. 8. Peter Gunter, a North Texas State University professor, wrote in 1970, “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” 9. In January 1970, Life reported, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….” 10. Ecologist Kenneth Watt told Time that, “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” 11. Barry Commoner predicted that decaying organic pollutants would use up all of the oxygen in America’s rivers, causing freshwater fish to suffocate. 12. Paul Ehrlich chimed in, predicting in 1970 that “air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” Ehrlich sketched a scenario in which 200,000 Americans would die in 1973 during “smog disasters” in New York and Los Angeles. 13. Paul Ehrlich warned in the May 1970 issue of Audubon that DDT and other chlorinated hydrocarbons “may have substantially reduced the life expectancy of people born since 1945.” Ehrlich warned that Americans born since 1946…now had a life expectancy of only 49 years, and he predicted that if current patterns continued this expectancy would reach 42 years by 1980, when it might level out. (Note: According to the most recent CDC report, life expectancy in the US is 78.8 years). 14. Ecologist Kenneth Watt declared, “By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.'” 15. Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated the humanity would totally run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver would be gone before 1990. 16. Sen. Gaylord Nelson wrote in Look that, “Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.” 17. In 1975, Paul Ehrlich predicted that “since more than nine-tenths of the original tropical rainforests will be removed in most areas within the next 30 years or so, it is expected that half of the organisms in these areas will vanish with it.” 18. Kenneth Watt warned about a pending Ice Age in a speech. “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years,” he declared. “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
Emerson Williams Democrats do not believe in the biblical Jesus. They believe in the Jesus of this socal construct and society. Thats why they kill babies, and believe in more than 2 genders regardless of genetic make up. They follow satan, specifically baphomet.
Derek Ángel There may be a human-creating cause behind the Hashimoto's virus that causes depression for the liberals to consider Euthanasia for those Hashimoto's hypothyroid victims, particularly the spread of thyroid allergen goitrogens found in food products...
Simmy Taub Progressives think to understand. Conservatives think they understand.
Dan Costa Hahaha, you all seem to think that people who lived in the past were miserable. I differ to say they were happier with less technology. ;)
Marc Langsam Critical thinking depends if one is taught how to think instead of what to think. Shame that teachers and professors disguise indoctrination as education. That is malpractice
Vel Champion While Trump plans his rally for ignorance and fake information, real science is celebrated for truth and "real facts". Ignorance is the single biggest threat to freedom in the world. So glad to see such a good turn out for such a wonderful cause to celebrate Science. Trump and his uneducated stance against truth needs to be educated to reality.
Joseph Chandler Lol idiots everyone has a brain. Some just choose not to use it. Also stop acting like President Trump and his adminstration are incompetent and somehow uneducated. They are highly educated and successful.
Rick South Jr these are not critical thinkers they think all a like... group think 101... government is everything... and those who actually are critical thinkers...are thrown out the door... just my opinion...
Rick Abrams Thinking is un-American. That's why we're a faith-based Christian country that elected Donald Trump President & we dunt need no stinkin' facts.

Crowds massed around the world Saturday to support science and evidence-based research http://cnn.it/2p4kI44

Craig Goodsir Medical advances alone justifies this protesting. Trump is so far out of touch. He spends billions on war and nothing to save American lives.
David Everson We have gotten to the point where we have to raise awareness with walks and protests over whats factually true about our world. Blows my mind how simple we are as a species..
David Petolicchio Guess science only matters when it's politically expedient. Otherwise, abortion and there being only two genders would be widely excepted. These are marches for propaganda, Not science.
Rue Rue Hill Just another excuse to block traffic and get 5 mins ATTENTION....IT'S now a weekly event for some excuse or another! No big deal...
Chris Mason Crowds massed. Created a ton of co2 getting there. Better idea would be to stay home and turn off the lights. But no. They want to party. Socialize. And burn the planet
Kristi B Colón Why is wanting clean air, water, and food, wanting medical research from vaccines to medicines, to stop epidemics, etc etc. Such a bad thing. When something horrible happens everyone will be "why doesn't anyone stop it?" It's because there was no funding. When there is no clean water....come on people this isn't that hard.....maybe in our lifetime we will not run out of oil coal or clean water but furture generations will. If we don't make progress we are not a great nation and are reverting back to a developing nation.
Dan Costa These scientists say the can predict global warming. They can't even predict the weather. All of them were standing out in the cold rain 💦 like a bunch of clueless dweebs. 🤓
Dan Costa China and the Middle East is loving global warming mongers because everyone gets out of the Fossil Fuel business but them. They just get to produce and use more oil and coal, becoming richer and richer. 💵
Larry Thomas When you have governments and corporations paying "scientists" to come to a pre-determined conclusion, it's not science anymore!

Bryan Fuller For all the people who deny fact based science please refrain from going to the hospital when you are sick. If we didn't have scientists, we would not have doctors and hospitals. We would not have medicine and electricity. Think before you bash scientists. Regardless of your beliefs, scientific data does not lie.
Sandy Sansom Isn't it sad that we have to march to bring attention to science and facts. Respecting science is a given. Sadly, that's not true of the current administration.
Stoney Williamson I am all for true science and being good caretakers of our earth. What we have now is a science that is driven by corrupt individuals trying to make a dollar on the very air you breathe. If Gore would have had his way you would be taxed to very last cent you possess. These people try to convince you to follow the latest global cooling/warming/change or the latest name so they can make you submit to their agenda. They will jet around the world on private aircraft and have limousines waiting on them as they give a speech to collect checks for their livelihood. All the while expecting you to use less, reduce your carbon footprint, and not chastise them for producing one the size of Texas. Be good caretakers of the earth, and when they decide to rid themselves of political alliances, stop the falsification of documentation and facts I will listen.
Clark Stone Trump trolls getting all riled up again. Whatever is being done, it's working. Hey aren't you happy something has pushed Russia off the front pages, if only for a day?
Josh Janky It's not a prediction of global warming yet an analysis of it over the last 130 years. You deny the climate warming significantly over a short period of time? These scientists and climatologists would love to hear another opinion.
Michael Mallette We MUST support evidence based science if we expect to survive. It seems as though only one side , the side with the most money gets heard. We can't keep making this political. There are other credible individuals other than the Al Gores , Van Jones , or Bill Nyes that are being silenced. Rather than pointing fingers and labeling people as something , we need to listen.
Donna Hodge Chapin It truly amazes me through ignorance of people everytime climate change comes up. With programs like Years of living dangerously, Before the flood, and the many other programs that actually show what is happening...that's right deniers...shows that climate change is here and caused by human activity. Is it that people are so arrogant and truly believe that they know more than what is being proved to them...or maybe that they want to believe so badly that the Trump they voted for can do no wrong. The deforestation of the rain forest, the bleaching of the coral reefs, the acidity of the oceans, the rise in the oceans not to mention the floods,tornados, wildfires, droughts. It will effect everyone of us in some way if nothing is done either financially, loss of jobs, homes. What a horrible legacy to leave our grandchildren.
Kristi B Colón So important question why are science deniers so mad about science? I don't get it...theres no reason to get all red (lol pun intended) please if u don't want to believe in it...dont. But u can not say science and all the advances we have made is false. That's just utterly ridiculous
Anthony Roberts There are just as many on the other side that have evidence to support their argument that climate change is a myth, and as global warming has already been discredited, I tend to side with them on this issue.
James Lord It's awesome to see people coming together like this but it's totally pathetic that it's even necessary in this day and age. 2017: The age of information coupled with the bliss of ignorance.
Cheryl Melnyk I was as science teacher for 35 years and I applaud the push for STEM in our schools. But when people who probably avoided science in school because it is too hard and too much work treat Bill Nye the Science guy like a science rock star it's a turn off. Come on people.
Jeno Anthony Horvath You say fact based research. How can it be research if it's fact based? How does science move further than what has been proven already? Don't you need a lot of experimenting with unknown and non factual thoughts or hypotheses?
Robert Armstrong Robots on the move. No evidence of man-made climate change. But ok Am will tell you different....for a price to help pay for his multi-million dollar home. On the beach where he said years ago would be under water by now.
Hans Dingerdis Amazing.... Because one US political party and one US president don't believe in science the whole world is making this march. I always wonder what schools they went when they were growing up. Was probably run by religious idiots.
Dan Costa Scientists always think they know everything but no nothing. All their hypothesis are always proven wrong with time. How's that for a science lesson. ;)
