It’s Your Addiction To Tasty Burgers That’s Causing Indy’s Pothole Mess

Potholes never happened before CO2 carbon pollution atmosphere cancer went above 350ppm

Letters: Climate change lies behind Indy’s pothole mess

As I swerved down the street today on my way to work, passing over some freshly patched potholes and dodging others, it occurred to me that more potholes may be, for Midwesterners, one of the most obvious signs of how changes in the climate are now affecting our daily lives.

While there are lots of reasons for potholes on our city streets, chief among them are the rapid freezing-warming-freezing patterns that have been the hallmark of Indiana’s recent winters. These conditions are the result of observable changes in Indiana’s climate that scientists predict will continue — and worsen — well into the future.

Our infrastructure has been designed and built with certain assumptions about temperature and precipitation, but facts on the ground are changing, and we need to reassess how to maintain and adapt our transportation and other systems.

One way to fix this is with a tax, and certainly for Believers to give up their own use of fossil fuels and make their lives carbon neutral to stop Cold Weather. Oh, wait

One way to help Indiana communities prepare for the future is to create more robust, relevant and accessible information about how decisions made today are likely to be affected by environmental change in the years ahead.

Nope, more about indoctrination. Can’t expect Warmists to practice what they preach, right?

Indianapolis’ pothole problem provides a painful glimpse into the enormous economic burdens that could result from environmental change. But with concerted and collaborative efforts, we can begin to address these problems, leading to a smoother path forward in every sense.

Wait, I thought this was happening now? No? It’s in the future?

Seriously, these people always find something. But, really, the whole point here is to get people to identify little things with man-caused climate change/global warming in everything they see and do, thereby scaring them into acting on this unscientific cult belief.

    There are pothole problems all around the country. Warm places like Los Angeles have severe pothole problems. While that guy finds it convenient to blame the problem on people not following his cult, the real problem is the local and state governments spend a drastically smaller percentage of their tax revenues on infrastructure maintenance and improvements than they used to, instead moving their spending into government worker pensions, salaries, welfare programs, and entitlement spending. The money is distributed to people rather than roads. For example, in the 70’s, California spent over 30% of it’s revenue on infrastructure. It was known for having the best roads in the country. For a while. Last time I looked, California spent 3/4 of 1% on infrastructure. The politicians are crying that there’s not enough money to fix the potholes. Crocodile tears. The money is going to union benefits, pensions, and special interests and social programs so that those groups will fund your election campaigns. Every retired govt worker I know has a vacation home, RV and/or boat, and very small living expenses. My teacher friends are all off at their ski “cabins” right now, and cop friends are heading out in their giant Class A motorhomes to take their families ATVing in the desert. I have two other teacher friends who are out on disability that play golf and go mountain biking with me. Retired firefighters are pulling in $200K with free healthcare. And the politicians can’t figure out how to pay for any standard infrastructure unless they can get a bond measure passed.

    This topic “triggered” me. Seems like everyone who is making products are working their asses off to get by and scrambling to get through tax season, while the public workers are out playing.

    According to my neighbor, a civil engineer, Indy’s problems are a result of going cheap on the road build by not building to the correct depth and strength. And they certainly were derelict in their duty if they didn’t account for the frost-thaw cycles that happen here; you can have the air conditioner on during the day, and have to turn on the furnace at night (I live in the county just to the north).
