That good men are getting swept up in the MeToo movement unfairly and that women should not be able to decide years later that an awkward or bad sexual encounter that was consensual at the time somehow becomes sexual assault because they decide it to be so. And I’m a woman, folks.

Man-made Global Warming is a myth. And ESG strategies wasting money aligning with that perspective should be avoided.

Woman here and I agree with FA2. I think it's an important topic to discuss but male colleagues definitely wouldn't feel comfortable treading into that territory with women around. Arguments could get very ugly and it could upset a lot of people

President 1. I’ll judge you here. Man made global warming is a myth? You’re laughable

Yeah I agree with Ameriprise 1 - I understand challenging things when there is an ounce of reason to support it, but you can’t “debate” or “disagree with” global warming. It’s a fact with overwhelming evidence. I assume president 1 is somewhere in the middle of the country where it’s more common to reject reason and logic for the sake of convenience.

But he’s right in not bringing it up because it’s controversial I even started talking shit right when I saw it lol 😂

EGS investing is bull. It's a marketing gimmick. But global warming IS real. One theory I have heard recently is that a lot of improvements have been made to the environment and carbon emissions have been reduced drastically and sustainable energy has been increasing but if the Democrats don't want anyone to know. They want to get everyone thinking the problem has only gotten worse because if people think the problem is improving they may not vote Democrat anymore.

Man-made global warming is mostly a myth. Every model they’ve done for the last 40 years has been wrong, including every conceivable simulation. It’s like us running a Monte Carlo every year, and all the data is wrong. We’ve had barely any warming from 1880-1910, 1940-1970, 2000-Present. It’s blown up the theory

Anyone else watched the move “The Farewell”.
