snocone: yakmans_dad: TV's Vinnie: BolshyGreatYarblocks: TV's Vinnie: BolshyGreatYarblocks: TV's Vinnie: I've been hearing this doom & gloom since the early 70's, and yet we're still here, and there's still plenty of Big Macs to go around.http://nassimtaleb.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/turkey.pngFeel free to spend your days fretting the sh*t out of yourself while waiting for the End of the World then, putz. I've been around long enough to see the same old song & dance from these Chicken Littles, most of whom have an agenda to make money or fame from their bullsh*t.Yeah, I'm sure lower-level NASA scientists do it for the fame.We'll see if you're a Vinnie-style tough guy when society crumbles. People said they didn't see the World Wars coming either, but even those events didn't threaten to turn civilization back to subsistence farming.I think it's going to be far more likely we'll both be in our 90's and crapping our Depends, while I smirk at you from across the bingo hall.People always underestimate the speed with which crises expand. I'm a bore about this but Pakistan has nukes and has been one of the countries already hard hit by climate change. They also have a large, organized Islamist opposition. The general line about climate change is to look at the weather it will produce or the sea level changes. Yes, bad, but terrible sea level change is a couple of hundred years away (unless you're Bangladesh.) What we need to to worry about are the political stresses: climate change breeds mass migrations.I am willing to bet the "nukes" do not work all that well.Maintenance is a miserable biatch and horribly expensive.
Langdon_777: Nemo's Brother: What I don't understand is why any of you greenies are using a computer for recration purposes? You are being beyond wasteful and selfish and should cease doing so immediately. GTFOI gotta wonder what is the opposite of greenies (even though I know you are being sarcastic/trollie) - is it suicidies, or maybe blowupies. How can anyone be anti-green? We live on this beautiful Earth/Gaia/Tosev3, how could anyone be stupid enough not to respect HER?!
