Krymson Tyde: No reason to fret, Jesus will be here any day to take us all home.Okay, not ALL of us.
doglover: Who the uses the term "bellweather" in this day and age. I must've read 10,000 books in my day, and I've never come across it.
born_yesterday: I watched a forum of experts on CSPAN, regarding the Pentagon procurement process. Their insights into the amount of waste was very depressing.The irony of it all, was that with better oversight, we could provide BETTER equipment and services to the troops while spending significantly LESS money.Yet any talk of reducing defense spending is tantamount to treason.Their conclusion was that the system won't change as long as Congress continues to benefit from the corruption.And so here we are.
chuckufarlie: so, you are either too lazy or too stupid to do a simple google search? I have never met anybody that stupid/lazy.Link
ThrobblefootSpectre: HighZoolander: I get what you're saying - 'both sides are bad', 'climate science isn't established enough for anything more than tentative conclusions' (from your earlier post), and 'other problems are more important'.I only said that the conclusions just of these particular scientists are tentative. Not that climate change (the big overall subject) isn't happening. Climate change does seem to be accelerating. No doubt about the evidence there. And it seems a very likely conclusion that human activities are causing it. I don't know why you have assumed any different about my stance on the topic.
ThrobblefootSpectre: Unfortunately I agree this may eventually be a necessary discussion. There are some very serious ecological problems that are definitely caused by humans, that get very little air time. Because everyone who supposedly "cares" sooooo damn much is too busy wallowing in self-serving partisan self-righteousness over the one issue of climate change. (that goes for both sides) The depopulation of the worlds oceans from overfishing comes to mind, as one.
BronyMedic: America, this is what you voted for. You voted for stupidity and conspiracy theory in the highest echelons of our Government. You voted to be "tough on them liberals!" and elected people who have less knowledge about the topic they govern than a fifth grade student learns in Science class.
Huggermugger: Oh, is that the latest Teabagger spin? "OK, there is climate change, but since you mention some solutions that are socialistic like conservation, your arguments are entirely invalidated and nullified."
born_yesterday: And don't ignore the cyclical ramifications that feed back into the derp. As America loses it's position as a leader in technology and manufacturing, the jobs associated with them go overseas (still fed by our consumerist dollars). As the country declines in every relevant way, they'll blame it on the lack of "Christ's Law", continuing to vote for and push an agenda that further suppresses science and technology, further leading to our decline.
BronyMedic: Oh yes, you should worry as an American, a taxpayer, and a human being.You see, the people who are in charge of this kind of thing - the investigation and mitigation of it - are the Representatives who make up the House Science Committee.A committee made up of a large amount of people who believe that, among other things, Climate Science and Evolution are satanic, liberal lies that have no place in the United States Government.Representative Paul Broun, stating that basic biological and general sciences are "lies from the pits of hell themselves"Representative Todd Akin, who besides his "legtimate rape" comment, believes evolution and climate science are conspiracies.There are other members of the science committee who believe, among other things - homeopathy is a legitimate scientific pursuit, evolution is a lie, religious freedom is not necessary in the United States, the abiotic oil/no peak oil theory, climate change is not occuring, and that basic biological sciences are hiding the truth about abortion.America, this is what you voted for. You voted for stupidity and conspiracy theory in the highest echelons of our Government. You voted to be "tough on them liberals!" and elected people who have less knowledge about the topic they govern than a fifth grade student learns in Science class.This, right here, is why our nation will become second world in terms of technology and science.But yeah. You guys go with Christ.
Clemkadidlefark: I breathe out carbon dioxide. My trees and grass fields love it. They give me back oxygen.
Tatterdemalian: If the climatologists were really worried about global warming, you'd think they'd support re-sequestering greenhouse gases. But instead, they insist that we can't seek any sort of engineered solution to global warming, because that wouldn't correct the disgusting producer/consumer behavior of our industrialized society. Better to let the human race die out than be tainted by the sins of biological imperatives, I guess.
