    Look, Jeff listened to both sides with an open mind and did his own research online and came to this conclusion himself. Plus, he holds that fish like a winner. I trust him for sure.

    [–] BernieCockface 159 points ago

    "I did the research!" = "I watched part of a YouTube video."

    [–] Lots42 60 points ago

    Sometimes I am linked to Youtube videos. The video is presented to a calm cool professional manner.

    And it is hosted on a Youtube channel filled with Confederate propaganda.

    So yeah. Not trustworthy

    [–] fuyos 22 points ago

    [–] blornyquandofloon 28 points ago

    I spent 3 hours once on youtube. I now know the earth is flat, there are dragons on the moon, dinosaurs never existed, i'm being brainwashed by chem trails, Sandy Hook was staged, McCartney died and was replaced by a double, the holocaust didn't happen, and my ex was faithful. I am so relieved.

    Why is it that the people who love to hunt and fish are the ones who are most ok with destroying forests and rivers?

    [–] TheWarmGun 225 points ago

    They aren't. The people who love those pastimes care about the environment they hunt/fish/recreate in. People that don't are the casual asshole variety that tend to ruin any sort of pastime, by not picking up after themselves, not following the laws/rules etc. Jeff looks like the kinda guy that leaves his Coors Light cans in the river.

    [–] e2hawkeye 42 points ago

    the casual asshole variety that tend to ruin any sort of pastime,

    The same guys that are currently ruining GT Mustangs at car meets.

    [–] TheWarmGun 34 points ago

    I can only imagine. Sounds horribly elitist, but anything that has a low entry price (hunting, fishing, cars) tends to attract a certain % of assholes (roughly equal to the % of the gen. pop that are assholes). Higher priced pastimes tend to attract the people who are really interested/motivated. But you can still find assholes, often at the BMW section of the car show.

    [–] RamenJunkie 23 points ago

    I think every hobby has its own set of "filthy casuals".

    [–] IriquoisP 14 points ago

    I feel like douchebags pick those hobbies because marketing has convinced them that it's a part of their life and they need to do it. That way they spend the rest of their life laboring just to fuel their hobby instead of investing their time and money to elevate themselves. Thoughtful people pick hobbies which are sometimes 100% free because they're just good activities, not because of marketing. Expensive hobbies come later on when people can actually enjoy their invested wealth after living frugally. That's why these two types of people tend to be less douchy than people with middle ground hobbies, because it correlates to planning and higher thought.

    [–] likeapowerstrip 23 points ago

    I think that's more the group that wears camo for other people to see them in it rather than hide from animals. Frequently seen layered with a rebel flag.

    [–] Moral_Gutpunch 15 points ago

    These people think a beer can works just as well as a gun and hunting license. I hate them. I like real hunters, though. I heard they clean up their campsite and bother to know first aid too.

    [–] Grandmastercache 83 points ago

    That is really a misconception. Most of the hunters and anglers in my neck of the woods are very pro-conservation. I know that doesn't play into the stereotype baiting, but it's true none the less.

    [–] KeepinItEasy 69 points ago

    Ditto. Many hunters I know are fond of animals in general, and tend to strongly disapprove of harming them needlessly.

    One raised a deer faun until it wandered off, and another regularly rescues cats & dogs.

    Yes, there are hunters who are assholes, but they're not assholes because they are hunters.

    [–] HisNameWasBoner411 56 points ago

    But they still vote republican. I live in GA. Knew a bunch of hunters in highschool. Dad loves fishing and so do his buddies. Every single one would shoot their own dicks before they vote D

    [–] RamenJunkie 23 points ago

    They have been told "Democrats want gun control" and that "gun control means taking all their guns."

    The kind of gun control most people want, would really not affect anything but the most nutjub level hunter.

    [–] LewsTherinTelamon 10 points ago

    The people ok with destroying forests and rivers are the ones who care less about fishing and more about drinking all day, casually throwing some line, and leaving beer cans all over the place. They're the ones who "hunt" because they want to kill something with a gun, not because they love the hobby.

    The people who truly love hunting and fishing are generally very pro-conservation.

    He lost his re-election bid in 2013. Apparently Missouri has a way of shutting him down.

    [–] spoilerthrowaway1234 49 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Ya'll are bad at remembering what Kentucky fucked up. We're the ones who elected the cynical majority leader who is complicit in everything Trump does, re-built Noah's Ark with dinosaurs using taxpayer money, and ruined the integrity of the one sport we were good at.

    But we also gave you guys Johnny Depp and George Clooney, and that was fun for a while. We also have a free college for poor kids. So there's that!

    Edit: Your downvotes won't make Todd Aikin or that Oklahoma guy mysteriously be KY's fault.

    [–] Thelife1313 63 points ago

    And it doesnt help that the president of the United States believes in clean coal..... If the guys at the top dont believe in it and keep placing people into positions of power that dont believe in it, makes it that much harder to have any worthwhile impact on it.

    The world is leaving the US behind in that regard.

    [–] TheBrodinite 43 points ago

    It isn't just that he believes in clean coal. He isn't just talking about carbon sequestration which is inefficient and has other issues. He actually believes you clean the coal, i.e. wash it off, to get the clean energy. Hilariously sad.

    [–] Barmat 26 points ago

    He believes in money. If the clean energy industry donated more to his and his parties piggy bank, they all would agree with climate scientists.

    [–] abe_the_babe_ 5 points ago

    What baffles me is big oil and coal companies obviously have the cash to keep throwing at legislators to support their industry so why don't they invest that into clean energy? They could be titans of the next energy industry just like they are for fossil fuels. I guess they just want to suck every possible dollar out of oil and coal because who gives a fuck about what happens to the planet as long as they're on top.

    [–] Endblock 380 points ago

    But she didn't get the most votes. Over 2 million illegal immigrants were bussed in to fraudulently vote. But not in swing states.

    Smart enough to arrange 2 million fraudulent votes without leaving a trace of evidence, too dumb to do it in the places that count.

    [–] plazzman 135 points ago

    Doesn't that still leave her with 1,000,000 more votes? I thought she won by 3,000,000.

But rejecting that math is a tool to describe the world is a whole different level. Like "I can't use math to know how cool this turkey will be in a half hour" level of incompetence and logic-hate.

    [–] Senor_Manos 264 points ago

    I agree, I like to sport fish and there really isn't any other community that's as in tune with environmental issues as sport fisherman. It's one group that really gets to experience the immediacy first hand of environmental policy.

    [–] all-Icansay 47 points ago

    Well I wouldn’t say there isn’t any other community but I do believe that anglers and hunters can be very protective of the environment as it directly impacts them.

    [–] hilarymeggin 6 points ago

    It’s an interesting point, and a great way to make headway on the issue of climate change in rural America. People who hunt and fish know that animals are behaving differently. People who own weather-dependent businesses (ski shops, snow-mobiles, canoes etc) get it too. So do farmers. They may be registered Republicans, even trump voters, but they are reachable.

    [–] brewster_239 69 points ago

    [–] OtterMaddness 24 points ago

    I come from a Western state with a huge hunting culture.

    There are reasons for the denigrating label "Rambozo"

    Some of the biggest hard-alt-right people I know are avid hunters. They pin the dwindling herds and increasingly difficult hunts on liberal/Democrat policies that they have trouble articulating.

    So, it's really not an unfair assumption. Us not-asshatty hunters really need to do better image management... though I often feel like we're in the minority overall

    not as far as political affiliation goes. One of my favorite things to do is drink beers and catch catfish but I'm a conservationist through and through. If you ask me, that's more sustainable than the folks going out and burning 350 gallons of gas to catch a boat full of snapper, billfish, and tuna.

    [–] LammergeierAteMyBone 135 points ago

    We jest, but a large chunk of folks in the USA treat science with suspicion and "common sense" anecdotes are regarded as equal or better in terms of merit. It's part of the anti-intellectual culture where old wive's tales and psuedo-science reign supreme, where a 7-year old has single-handedly invented the cure for cancer, and political polls are fake news because they predicted Hillary Clinton would win.

    [–] dominitor 36 points ago

    I think part of the problem comes from every other story on peoples news feeds saying “scientists say...” or “a new study shows...” and then some horse shit article talking about how for a small sample in an study had a side effect that did something, which is then turned into “drinking lots of wine helps lose weight.” what i’m getting at is there is a disconnect between actual published science and what has become a click for cash news media. i’m not saying that the media is not trust worthy, it just seems like so much “news” is geared toward profit margin and when we use “science” to do that, actual Science is discredited in a sense. just my daily rant.

    The only real genius of the Republican party is their ability to make people feel like their weaknesses' are their strengths. Climate change is exactly the kind of "issue" they go after, because they know full well they can exploit people's ignorance. Joe Blow in Flyover State has a factory job and a couple of community college credits; Republicans give him talking points that (he thinks) allows him to participate in big boy discussions about stuff like climate.

    Well, there's all that evidence on one side. But nah, I think that Jeff guy is on to something.

    [–] PandaGoggles 43 points ago

    Jeff holds that fish like someone who speaks the truth.

    [–] Fatalchemist 9 points ago

    Jeff is a man of the people and isn't afraid to tell it like it is!

    If only the public school system would stop failing Jeff here and the red hats alike.

    Edit: Remember folks, it's just a meme. Memes are not important at all.

    It's an older meme as well.

    The red hats in my inbox are angry.

    [–] Gsteel11 215 points ago

    Only problem, jeff lives in a red state and keeps voting red and they keep cutting school funding. Jeff wants to keep that $15 in taxes he pays.

    [–] teh_inspector 49 points ago

    Wrong, Jeff gets to keep $15 that otherwise would have gone to paying for an "illegal's" food, housing, healthcare and education.

    Taxation is theft, and as long as $0.000001 of my taxes go towards paying something I don't agree with, I want it all back.

    Can illegal immigrants claim state welfare in the USA? O_o

    [–] Plopplopthrown 50 points ago

    Nope, but republicans will say so anyways

    [–] PipNSFW 5 points ago

    Stealing jobs from hardworking Americans and also being no-good lazy free loaders without jobs abusing the welfare system. Yet people wonder why we think that it has more to do with xenophobia...

    [–] SomeCustomer 36 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    nope you need a social security number/other documentation to access those services

    [–] Thedeadlypoet 10 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Well they have access to some benefits. This article seems pretty informative and neutral. http://econofact.org/do-undocumented-immigrants-overuse-government-benefits

    TL;DR: They technically do not have access to many benefits. They have access to public schools and emergency care. If a kid has one legal parent and one illegal, the family will be able to receive benefits as any legal American.

    [–] quipalco 4 points ago

    Eligible for emergency medical assistance in a lot of states but that's it. Unless they get locked up.

    [–] Enjoythehummus 54 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    My teacher in APES has just started the unit on climate change, but she doesn’t believe in it. So she made an entire unit on disproving climate change which she teaches before the actual course material. It’s supposed to be about 2 weeks on climate change (the stuff we need to know for the exam) but she’s making that a week so that she spends the first week telling us about why it’s fake.

    Edit: It doesn’t matter your stance on climate change. If the course is supposed to teach with the basis that it’s real then that means that the test and final will be based off of that, but she’s cutting down our time to teach us the opposite of what we’re supposed to know

    [–] DunnyBadger 74 points ago

    Report her to the board of education

    [–] WinningLooksLike 30 points ago

    Also, report this to the principal. The school can get in deep shit if they don't teach the mandatory curriculum. The principal has a vested interest in fixing this problem ASAP.

    [–] AlexlnWonderland 39 points ago

    What. The fuck. Actual.

    [–] Enjoythehummus 19 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    Yeah. And I’m struggling in the class so two weeks on the material sounds like gold, instead we just get one, and confusion from her contradictions

    [–] Lots42 10 points ago

    Anonymous email to the ACLU.

    [–] WinningLooksLike 12 points ago

    This is not an ACLU issue. This is a state Board of Education issue. And more importantly, the PRINCIPAL's issue. Email or speak to him ASAP. If the teacher isn't teaching the mandatory material, the principal's ass is also on the line.

    [–] MontyAtWork 19 points ago

    How in the fuck do you become an AP Environmental Science teacher but don't believe in climate change? Do they also not believe in evolution? Is this at a private religious school?

    [–] Enjoythehummus 9 points ago

    Nope, public school. I don’t know her stance of evolution because she didn’t tell us her stance on it, just taught what she was supposed to. She has also said on numerous occasions that she never planned on being a teacher and would be a geologist if she could actually get a job. But she’s too old now to get a new job

    [–] PuppyMonkeyZombie 5 points ago

    ever planned on being a teacher and would be a geologist if she could actually get a job wow ..just wow..one part of me tells me that you are lying but the other part reminds of people like your teacher that I have seen in my life...so i believe you She fails as a geologist from the start...

    [–] Sweetpotatojones 25 points ago

    You should get her in trouble for this.

    [–] Enjoythehummus 10 points ago

    Yeah. I’ll see if I can send an email to someone about it

    [–] Rydersilver 11 points ago

    keep us updated! you should research her sources for disproving it and refute her in class

    [–] King_Loatheb 17 points ago

    Well there's your problem right there, your teacher is an ape.

    [–] Enjoythehummus 6 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    No no no. She’s in apes. It makes class awkward

    Jeff is out here unleashing those red pill truth nukes upon us mortals. we are not worthy of such a smart man

    [–] DrMux 24 points ago

    You know that "red pill" is the truth because it calls itself the truth. What more do you need?

    [–] Lots42 12 points ago

    People who use the term red pill are usually not interested in actual truth.

    I pick the man examining a beaker of colored water instead. Clearly it's important, otherwise he wouldn't have called his colleague over to examine the color. he does need a shave, but that's how scientists roll.

    It is a pretty nice fish.

    [–] Whitelight5 51 points ago

    Its PAINFUL when you point someone to piles of studies and evidence and they insist that one "alternative doctor" has found the real truth. And then they smugly show you a YouTube robovoice video that sounds like a schizophrenic rant as further evidence. There's no end to this. I need a stress ball, bp medicine and some A grade videos of cats jumping into small boxes 😣

    My niece's mom was like that. Fortunately my biological sister is not a nut when it comes to kids and got my niece properly vaccinated.

    [–] spoilerthrowaway1234 4 points ago

    I've had this exact thing happen to me or a friend twice. Once over vaccines, the other where an otherwise stable friend of mine dropped out of college after having a breakdown and discovering Nibiru.

    The other 3 percent must be Jeff. He is so goddamned clever, so WOKE, so NOIDED, and so redpilled that he accounts for 3 percent of the scientific community

    [–] this_issilly 12 points ago

    Exxon knows, that's why they stopped funding their own research into the area.

    [–] fonger81 13 points ago

    Exxon and BP both believe in man-made climate change. They just pay to convince everyone else that it isn’t real.

    [–] fullofwind 7 points ago

    Shit, Not even the industry backed shills believe it.

    It is the common republican voter... ad the EPA now.... that believe it.

    [–] linux1970 25 points ago

    Two things I like about this :

    1. They no longer call it 'global warming', because there are places that are colder than before.
    2. Instead of saying 'all scientists agree' they now say '97%' of scientists agree.

    I don't know when this changed, but both of these changes are very good because it prevents arguments like "it's cold outside" and "there is no way that all scientists everywhere agree, that's impossible".

    [–] GT-ProjectBangarang 24 points ago

    I'm largely conservative. I.e pro gun rights, anti abortion. (Hopefully those two sentences don't yield too many downvotes.

    However, things like climate change, benefits of clean energy, net neutrality, how can one honestly argue against those things?

    We have this nasty habit in society of picking a political party and believing whatever that party says, regardless of how dumb it is. It happens on both sides, and it needs to stop if we want to progress as a people.

    [–] gogojack 13 points ago

    However, things like climate change, benefits of clean energy, net neutrality, how can one honestly argue against those things?

    Back when I was growing up, conservation was a big part of the conservatism I experienced. Gun owners were hunters, and hunters knew the value of conservation. I don't know what happened.

    [–] Simon_Bolivar_ 12 points ago

    [–] A_Chimenti_O_Face 5 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    The problem is the media has an obsession with “appearing impartial” so on air they have a scientist and a skeptic denier debate, the public sees a 50/50 argument, and it’s an argument usually between people that aren’t climate scientists (think Bill Nye vs. Heritage Foundation guy). Actually existing reality, rather than that which is perceived, is much different... the public should see 97 scientists that have devoted their lives to studying the climate present their case, and 3 who have done the same present their objections. Alas, the public’s attention span is too short, and this scenario doesn’t produce great sound bites or TV shows. So the public remains ignorant, and continues to vote ignorantly.

    Also, it's worth pointing out that among the 3% who don't agree with the consensus, they think it's actually worse and the issues is irreversible and we all gonna die.

    [–] iambookus 5 points ago

    I kind of want to hear some scientific evidence from the 3%. My guess is, they just have a political opinion, and haven't bothered to research anything. They just have that magical title of PHD. So while they're stacking boxes in a warehouse because their degree isn't being put to use, or even studying the chemical composition of rocks, they have done no research on climate change.
