reported: It's a great business plan - Shell helped create the very conditions that allow them to exploit more resources.

jake_lex: FishyFred: But climate change isn't happening, therefore we should burn this oil we just found because of climate change.

Goddammit.

That's why they're trying to change the narrative from "Global warming isn't real" to "Global warming is real, but it's a natural cycle." It's hard to totally deny it now, but if things are going to be OK anyway, then why not drill that oil?

IRQ12: make me some tea:....

Overpopulation is the #1 issue facing our species. Yet, it's rarely talked about.

Probably because it's not the #1 issue facing our species. Our inability to live in sustainable ways is the #1 issue facing our species.

And no, buying a prius and using reusable bags has nothing to do with the scale/scope of how much we need to change to live as a species in a sustainable way.


But because of that inability, we could buy a few decades of think time with a nice 50% mortality plague, no?

This planet looks pretty sweet at 3.5 billion and holding. Maybe the 800 gorillas still uneaten in the Congo could get up to a thousand or so in 20 years. Maybe the rhinos shot because impotent Chinese can't pronounce "Viagra" could reproduce from "critical" to "vulnerable".

Win-win.

HotIgneous Intruder: PunGent: Bad things happen when you funnel science through the popular media. I'm surprised you don't know this, but, kudoes for being proud of it...I guess.

So you really think your deflection from the purpose of posting those quotes from leading media outlets showing how WRONG! the prognosticators have been is a working solution to losing the argument?
I think not.

gulogulo: Threads like this just confirm for me the scientific knowledge 'deficit' in the American public. Our education system has failed in properly teaching the sciences when people can say with a straight face that because there was climate change in the earth's past it will pose no problems for us now.


I always wondered how the enlightened citizens of Krypton could be so stupid as to not believe their own sun was about to go nova when the raw evidence was right there staring at them in the face.

Now I understand.

But was it lowered to 20, or raised to 20?
