Diane don't try to tell me you're still trying to sell the crap that 'climate warming' is all a hoax, a Chinese conspiracy and all nonsense are you. Because Diane except in a hard right wing ghetto of America that bullshit lie just doesn't fly.

Diane is correct. Man made climate change is a hoax and has been shown to be time and time again.

KILO either you and Diane are paid saboteurs, subverses paid by the right wing to sit and watch these sites and spew lies and disinformation or your the stupidest f88ks on the planet. "Man made climate change is a hoax", 98% of scientists from all over the world say your full of sh*t, but of course you're a FOX NUZ climate authority.

I am appreciative of the fact leftie/socialists are oblivious to how those underprivileged in Houston are going to deal with the fact they have lost everything. Monday last week I made a bet with a neighbor and he volunteered to listen to every one of Thom's shows Monday - Friday. My $200 against his $100 (check sent to the Red Cross) that Thom would not even lean towards guiding his audience to help them out in any way. While I monitored the conservative stations who to the person, spent over half their week long show speaking to the victims, congresspersons, and relief agencies, my neighbor was quietly writing out his check for $100 to the Red Cross in my name. Thanks Thom, you did unwittingly help out in one small way.

OH PLEASE give be a break, first of all i don't believe you , you're most likely like your hello Trump who CLAIMS he gives donations which don't exist. Secondly compared to the damage prople like you are causing this planet because you continue to fight science and deny climate change, so your so called 100 bucks is worthless.

Your RED CROSS is a corrupt and phony as you and your country Diane. They took in a half a billion in HAITI DONATIONS and built six houses.
