he says "I don't know of a single reasonable answer to why you would need to eat meat indiscriminately" Carnivore Diet dummy. A lot of people's health is being saved by eating exclusively meat.

This guy keeps talking about making sacrifices. Hes hellbent on saving animals, fine, I love animals, but hes emphatic about his support for abortion. WTF? I'm making a sacrifice too...trying to make it to the end of this episode. Leftists are so snarky--just repulsive.

I'm open to the argument of climate change, but theres a zero percent chance I trust anything coming from the left. Throughout history radical leftists have deployed population and environmental scare tactics to implement radical agendas. These people CANNOT be trusted thus all their hypothetical alarmists should be summarily dismissed.

I dont know a single person that denies that the climate is changing. I know MANY (including myself) that do not believe taking millions of dollars from citizens through taxes will fix the climate. I feel like we are considered the so called climate change disbelievers. Lame subject

Well, I am open to the argument, I just dont know anything about the science behind it. My main question is why globalism always seems to be the answer. Climate alarmism for the purpose if expanding government has been around since the dust bowl, and I just dont trust people, at all, when they say that the "experts" think I need more government in my life. Practically every bad thing in the history of humanity comes from, or is involved with, governments. Its a form of insanity to continue to believe they have our best interests at heart.

Brian Griffin the globalism solution is always present or suggested because while many problems are contained by a country's physical borders, atmospheric problems envelop the whole globe. that's the original rationale for a federal environmental protection agency, because while one state's laws may require clean air practices, a neighboring state might choose to not have those restrictions in place, and thereby negatively affect the conditions in the first state. similarly, no matter what the US does in terms of climate policy, if China and the other major polluters don't follow suit, it really doesn't matter. it's a game theory problem, where any one actor is at an economic disadvantage by playing to the rules, though the entire system as a whole would be better off if everyone unanimously agreed to adopt the same policy. so what's an ambitious economy like China going to do? they'll do what they want to get ahead, because it makes economic sense for them. that's why a globalist solution is proposed to tackle this problem. that said, as we see today with the EPA, these agencies tend to undergo legislative creep, and extend beyond their original manifest. it's a delicate balance to find.
