Lo, I think we agree on some things. For example your uncle, it sounds, knew the truth of some things that have happened over here in the past 25 years. What we disagree most on is 'then' and 'than', my friend. ;)

Lo and others I don't think we should beat up on Gary. He believes what he believes and I for one am not going to change his mind. More power to him I say for standing his ground. I have nothing left to fight for. I will be dead before the seas cover the land and I am already on Medicare so I don't have to fight for socialized medicine either. Gay marriage is the law of the land and I don't care as I will never get married. No kids so I don't care about the rising cost of education. So to hell with the world. I will pay my taxes and be happy. I feel so liberated that I think I will post something happy or confusing in the Consciousness Topic.

I inferred the Lo, myself and others were somehow "beating up" on Gary and that was wrong. My apologies to anyone who read this. The fact is I was surrendering to the fact that the political powers will not change as fast as I would like them to. 

 

"They" were not doing anything and Gary can stand up for himself. It was a weak attempt at reconciliation for my own anxiety about the future of this planet when I realized this doesn't matter to me anymore.

I think we agree the Constitution is a lovely thing. So are the artifical womb and Ron Paul. That all comes together in Science, thus in Global Climate Change.

 

And we also both love The Donald's bragadiccio.

 

What we disagree most on is 'then' and 'than', my friend. ;)

Well, important people, very important, trust me, very important people from within MT are telling me the then has to do with time, Gary, and it's if... then.... Then the than has to do with more, Gary, so it's bigger than. Trust me, it is... I've got a special note stuck onto my desktopscreen that says so; fantastic note that is, believe me. It's huge. So you better confer to my MT-collegue about it thEn, Gary. You should. That would be terrific. It'd be actually amazing rather thAn splendid, really. Trust me. It would.

... anyway in english every voyel is pronounced the same "i" for example in sentence like " busy women be big image" you can see that all voyels are present and they are all pronounced the same ... so then or than is a minor detail ...😊

If you don't know where you go ... you have a lot of chance to arrive elsewhere ...

On Netflix there is a half hour program with Bill (the science guy) Nye called Bill Nye Saves the World. If you have any interest in the science of global climate change it's only 30 minutes. Better than watching a sitcom and you might learn something. Global warming is real, but what do I care? By the time people have to migrate from the coast and food shortages start riots I will be taking a dirt nap.

The Daily Wire just published a poll with this data:

 

A poll with 1200 millennial participants who believe that Climate Change is the single most important issue in politics was conducted

When asked how much they personally would be willing to give per year to help fight climate change, 60% said they would not give more than 10 dollars, and 82% said they would not give more than 100 dollars..

 

I'm willing to pay 100 dollars a year for this site to keep running and have updates (so badly needed!). So why can't 60% of millennials spare 80 cents a month to fight the "single most important issue in politics"?


I'm always a winner- win or lose the game. I take my mistakes and learn from them!

Yes but you don't need to think of just yourself, Queenbee. That's not the holy spirit.

 

Eat less hamburgers. Drive electric. Do it for Fairway's children.

Thank you Lo for reminding me not to think it is all just about me. I make these statements in frustration. It's moment when I am saying "I can see it. Why can't you?" It makes me sad the wildlife that is being displaced and if we have the tech imagine all the jobs we could have in green energy as opposed to oil and coal. Natural gas is cleaner, but it still warms the earth. The sun and wind give us all the energy we need now that technology has caught up. I would prefer nuclear over the burning of fossil fuels. There simply is rational argument left to defend the burning of fossil fuels.

Hang on to those fossil fuels - and you never know what technology might arrive which makes us think 'I wish we hadn't needlessly wasted those cheeky fossil fuels - and attacked our atmosphere'. Maybe if the pace of change is slow enough we would have a chance to evolve to handle the new atmosphere we create. Or maybe we destroy it so quickly that the Carbon Slug finally takes over the world.

I worry less about humans and more about the other species whose habitats are lost. I believe that global climate change is affected by humans burning fossil fuel and it could be a terrible legacy we are handing off to the children. 

 

The fossil fuel industry will either change due to market forces or it won't. The science doesn't matter anymore. Truth is cheap in the Age of Donald J. Trump. Social networking drives the world. Not science. So I will not be the harbinger of TEOTWAWKI. The popular opinion is to pretend it doesn't matter, so I will.

When a man like Trump or anyone else claims that climate change is a hoax I wonder why do they deny scientific data and who do they think stand to gain from perpetuating this as a hoax. It just don't make any sense to me.

With the EPA gone, the next episode is making Kim Jung Un's nuclear powers a joke. A potentially disastrous outcome from the Harvey flooding is this chemical plant in Crosby, Texas belonging to French industrial giant Arkema SA, announcing it is evacuating workers due to the risk of an explosion, after primary power was knocked out and flooding swamped its backup generators.

 

http://www.zerohedge...-chemical-plant

 

You may not like Zerohedge, but this is coming from the CEO of the plant himself!

 

This may 'just' be chemicals now, but next hurricane up a nuclear plant? Its infrastructure is as absolete as US's bridges and roads. Way to go to abandon the EPA.

 

So there's no Climat Change going on... then how come

 

DIcnQKeV4AANg5s.jpg

 

One happening in 500 years... could be just a coincidence we're all living it.... OK... but 25 make 12.500 years... fuzzy math? OK, but as for making this hurricane a small matter, it's been said it'll cost more than Katrina which was set out to be a mere 125.000.000.000 dollars. Well, honestly, that's indeed a small amount compared with the 20 trillion debt around nowadays :wacko: :blink: :P! Going to post on that matter next too :o B).

 

First a funny pic. The total square mileage under water in Texas is greater than than the size of NYC and Chicago COMBINED. It's probably the size of my country, compare our Randstad with Chicago here:

Just keep clicking your heels and repeat "it won't happen to me."

 

Lo that is just one chemical plant. Gas has already climbed .25 a gallon in a week. New Orleans (Katrina) and New Jersey (Sandy) didn't affect the entire world, but Texas (Harvey) will.

 

I still can't see your pics. Maybe you can include a link with them.

Gas is just climbing to its real costs. That's what I've kept arguing. It's all sponsored now... pollution is free and earth gets suppleted, then the hurricane comes and costs 0,1 trillion.... well that only happens once every 500 years, doesn't it?

 

But all of a sudden in half a dozen of years you've got two dozens of hurricanes, costing 24 trillion... even more than US' total debt! They should charge the real costs, Queenbee, and that is much more than this +0.25.

OK I will, it's here:

 

https://twitter.com/...477783765786624

 

Press the link. It's a great one. It absolutely is. It's huge, believe me, it is.

 

It's The Donald. Who was there with the Harvey victims. It was great. It was just absolutely fantastic. It really was. Well, a lot of water. Really a lot. A huge amount of water. But it was great to watch. Everybody said so. Terrific show. It really was. Everybody is so happy about it. Trust him. It will appease you now Irma is coming for you. 

 

This is Irma.

Our problem is downed trees in my neighborhood. We have one heading for South Florida and I hope it heads north. That gulf water is so warm it's like a supercharger for hurricanes. I think Trump can mimic feelings, but I think he is a sociopath. I haven't read any news this week. Trying to reinforce my bubble. Less news means a happier QB.

Also for climate science deniers why don't you right down all the reasons that science got the whole climate change thesis wrong. Explain to me your side of the problem. Do we ignore it or hope it doesn't happen to you?

queenbee1, we may have had global warming over the earth, I admit, but those periods are interspersed with global neutral and global cooling times. Further, those altering periods have occurred at various times, including while man was on the rise industrially. The 1940's in the USA were some of the coolest on record...in the midst of a highly mechanized world war and therefore a marked increase in man's contributions to the greenhouse gases. Yet, you say these pollutants of man have brought on global warming. The earth disagrees, it would appear.

More pressing at the moment, though: hope you fare well during Irma, queenbee1. They're saying category 5. It's a monster. Good luck!
