Just who are these 300 'scientists' telling Trump to burn the climate?

300 scientists are NOT climate scientistsIf you read my articles regularly, you may have noticed multiple times I have stated that the scientific argument is over; there are no longer any reputable scientists that deny the overwhelming human influence in our climate.

Protesters Pray and Set Fire at Dakota Access Pipeline Camp Ahead of Shutdown

Dakota pipeline shutdownThe last people remaining at a Dakota Access pipeline protest camp prayed and set fire to a handful of wooden structures on Wednesday, hours ahead of a deadline set by the Army Corps of Engineers to close the camp.
