Quote from: Mudwall Gatewood 3.0 on March 22, 2020, 08:51:34 AMJust heard of a possible silver lining from our global virus conundrum.  Decreased human daily activity = positive influence on climate change.           

This is mind blowing.

I saw this earlier and the same reaction.
If you want to debate this shit, you are a special kind of stupid.
Stop polluting, nature starts to cure itself. If, if, we have not gone to far.

I pee in fruit juice bottle.  Stopping at a public restroom is about a sensible as licking an airplane toilet seat.  Snowbirds from Canada are keeping things hot on the freeway.  All of the Florida goodness is being sowed along our interstate highway facilities.

One of the owners of this company literally works for Mission.  It's completely incomprehensible outside of the framework of self-absorbed greed.

A half-dozen state parks are now completely closed, including Hanging Rock in Stokes County and Crowders Mountain west of Charlotte. Campgrounds in all North Carolina national forests closed on Monday though at least mid-May.
ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Don't look at me to try and explain this.  He was really being bullheaded about moving classes online when the school already has the online infrastructure in place considering it has the 2nd largest online program in the world.  My understanding is it is just degrees that require in-person hands on teaching.  Med school, nursing program, etc. But then again everything he says isn't aligned with what actually happens.  I really try not to read too much Falwell Jr. stuff because it is a little depressing.

Meanwhile, the entire GSMNP has closed. This is overblown, ridiculous ignorance. I can go to Walmart, but I can't go somewhere back in the woods three miles from another human? This is absurd stupidity, and somebody needs to pay for hyping this panic.

SNP has shut the AT and the shelters. All facilities are closed. Fishing is open. Most trails are open. (They have closed high volume, stupid human trails.)

I would think they are concerned about bathrooms and the like .. doesn't make sense for a lot of people but you have to take care of the lowest common denominator

They already had campgrounds, picnic areas, and bathrooms closed. Closing the backcountry is stupid.
