    I don't know of a single person who believes the climate does not change.  It has always changed.  Conservatives definitely believe this.  We are aware of the Ice Age.  The Little Ice Age was a period of cooling that occurred after the Medieval Warm Period.   All pre-industrial.  Imagine that.   However, you do see Democrats and MSNBC eggheads claiming that only man can change the climate.  Pure BS.  
    I don't think I've ever seen anybody suggest that "only man can change the climate" except in the kind of argument you just made.

    The Current science is something like 99.9999% (might be more 9s) that the current climate shift is caused by humans.
    Your quote on "the current science" is pure ignorance.  If there was such exact science then these scientists could predict every days weather and the exact temperatures in the coming years. In fact, the global warming baloney mongers, like you, have NEVER been able to accurately predict anything.  It is pure bunk.  For real climate science see Fred Singer or  Roy Spencer.  They are two real scientists who know climate issues.

    Political rival groups define each other's news outlets as fake, that's both predictable and par for the course I guess.  Defining scientific facts as fake news is bloody dangerous.  Measle epidemics (and what next, polio and smallpox?) is an example of unbelievably ignorant people believing fake news. 
    Sure, that's pretty dumb I would agree.

    However, the denial of scientific fact is not just limited to one side.


    Except it pretty much is. You don't see Democrats or non-Fox stations in droves claiming that climate change isn't real.

    It sounds like you've been watching too much of the Handmaid's Tale and not realizing that it's just a fictional series.

    Trump won fair and square, he didn't seize power, what a ridiculous thing to claim. It's the sorelosers who still can't accept reality and get over their loss. Any talk of Russia is complete nonsense and a few facebook ads bought for tiny sums amounting to thousands of dollars is complete peanuts and had zero effect on any election.

    The sorelosers spent billions and still lost. And the main interference in the election has been from the sorelosers with their hoaxes and fake dossiers perpetrated by the side that lost. They cheated and they still lost. The stupid is really strong with that side.

    And the economy is doing great, with less regulations and less hindrances for businesses. It's the other party that wants more regulation, higher taxes and state control over everything, including the private sector.

    And claiming that there is no bias against conservatives on either Facebook or Twitter is also complete nonsense, as there are examples almost daily of discrimination, and nobody buys their excuses that a "mistake" was made anymore, because those "mistakes" always seem to only target one side. Hate speech to a leftist is basically anything that they disagree with, including the term "learn to code", meanwhile they are free to make actual death threats on twitter and nothing seems to ever happen to them. I guess that death threats and threats of actual violence are ok, as long as it's coming from a liberal.

    The liberal fake news dominance and their censorship fetish is getting less effective for each day that passes, and that's a wonderful thing. I'd like to see some of them go out of business soon, that would be fantastic. 

    Oh please, stop sucking Trump's cock, you old obese fart. 

    Now, that is pure hate and intolerance.  For the record, I don't think comments like the above, which are vile and pure hate, should be censored.  We can learn about what makes up each political faction by reading what they write.  And we can and should draw conclusions.  This type of hate is common today and it is most common on one side of the debate.   Frequently, those with such hate have TOLERANCE bumper stickers on their cars.  That is always ironic.

    Oddly I never had fake news problems on Apple News but since News+ came out I have seen at least 3 articles denying human responsibility on climate change. That kind of nonsense has no place on any serious service. 
    Your comment has no place on any serious service.   Science is about argument and seeking truth.  It is never about silencing debate.  Except when it has been hijacked by fake scientists.  If you are too weak to read articles with different viewpoints, then that is your problem.  Maybe you should develop a thicker skin.

    "File sharing was initially regarded as illegal."   Tell that to this Minnesota woman who is the subject of this 2006 report from The Guardian,

    "A Minnesota woman, one of the last people to be individually prosecuted in the US for illegal downloading and file-sharing, faces a $220,000 bill after a federal court ruling on Tuesday.

    The federal appeals court reversed a district court's decision to reduce Jammie Thomas-Rasset's owed damages to $54,000 from $1.5m. Tuesday's ruling (pdf) sets the damages at $220,000 and forbids Thomas-Rasset from making sound recordings available for distribution."

    2006 was half a decade after the iPod came out. Napster peaked, got sued and then was out of business in the summer of 2001 right as iPod was arriving. 1998-2001 was early file trading.  

    The world changes fast. Two years ago the USA was a liberal democracy. Now it’s a religio-fascist republic where votes don’t matter and white supremacists are indoctrinated by state TV to unthinkingly march to  nationalist socialism—with a planned economy laid out by a flamboyant figurehead who seized power and wants to scuttle all checks and balances of the legislative branch and fill the courts with one political party while refuting science because he has a “good brain.” 

    I wrote an article about digital magazines and newspapers and the comments are all demanding to know why “liberals” are censoring their TV and also why their 75+ year old king is not getting glorified on the TV outside of the only thing they watch. Sad. 
    So, Corrections the Minnesota woman was fines $200K because file sharing was illegal.  It was a form of stealing.   Napster went out of business because its business was theft.  Your last sentence again, like last time, explores new frontiers in incoherence.
