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.

Feel 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.


Well, you couldn't "pay up" if you lost the bet, so your willingness doesn't mean much. I know you're using a figure of speech for "confidence" but that kind of confidence is as misplaced as it's endemic.

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. GTFO

I 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?!


Ask corazon Santiago or chairman yang about the mindworm boils.

So, since the Population Bomb nonsense in the 1970s burned out, and MMGW is burning out, they figure that combining the two scams they can maybe get away with it.  Personally, I think that after presenting him with the Trofim Lysenko award, Paul R. Ehrlich should have been put in prison until his fantasies come to pass.  With his cellmate being James E. Hansen.

yakmans_dad: StokeyBob: yakmans_dad: StokeyBob: blind to the socialism itself.

Just for grins, name the 5 largest socialist countries.

I Googled up a list of 10 for you.

China
Denmark
Finland
Netherlands
Canada
Sweden
Norway
Ireland
New Zealand
Belgium


The only one that really concerns me at the moment is the United States of America

And so you're worried about socialism? Because when I think of Finland, Sweden, and Denmark ,.. I  sure imagine the frightened hordes of Finns, Swedes, and Danes yearning  to breathe free. Yup.


Our back door stealth socialism isn't bringing their kind of socialism. It is shuffling us all out of our everything.

Lots of people are already out of their homes and jobs.

Some wonder if there is any gold in Fort Knox. Others are wondering, if anything is there, do we still own it.

We are systematically losing control of our natural resources.

We are being shuffled out of our public lands. Roads and places we used to be able to park are disappearing leaving pay lots controlled by private companies.

Even land people own outright are having rules of use placed on them that virtually steals their land.

It is a global problem.

With the central banks set up the way they are, no matter how much hard earned honest money the, We The People, can come up with to build their world the way they want, others, inside and outside of their countries can fire up the fake money presses and print up what ever it takes to get their way.
