Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

kramer, I hope you are not indicative of your generation. My generation was a "can do" generation. We got great things done. We weren't a "make do" generation that believed the current status quo would be the norm forever. Here's a 'solution': Let all other countries go green and we stay with fossi...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

What is the w"well established problem" that requires a solution?

That wasn't a "rhetorical question", that was a policy suggestion by 'scientists'.

Bill Ivey to Podesta-we've all been quite content to..in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry

From Wikileaks: ... And as I've mentioned, we've all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious think...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

I believe there are things called batteries. But I could be wrong. You're not wrong, you just are a little ignorant on the scale and scope of the excavations required and amount of natural resources needed to make them. And batteries have a finite lifetime. What ever happened to preserving the eart...

From Eric Holthaus, Grist writer and meteorologist regarding the new IPCC report: "The world's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism as a key requirement to maintaining civilization and a habitable planet." Hmmm, an excerpt from the latest IPCC report from...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

So you're worldview is screwed because fossil fuels are extremely finite (and of course very damaging to the atmosphere.) We have something like a 1,000 year supply of methane hydrates and more NG, oil, and coal combined than any other nation. We have plenty of time to come up with a really good al...

So what IF those things don't happen. Then what We have plenty of time to develop a real viable energy source because we have more oil, coal and NG than any other nation combined (which will probably change once the other larger nations start really looking at what they have). And we have something...

Re: Micheal Mann: "level of warmth that we’ve now reached is unprecedented in tens of thousands of years"

"I get that facts, context, and overwhelming evidence doesn't matter to you." It is I who provides the facts w/links to back them up and you who provides the BS and occasional comment that is untruthful. Where is the "overwhelming evidence" that CO2 is the temperature control knob and bad weather c...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

Regarding nuclear power, I am fine with it IF the waste can be safely dealt with and IF they can make them so that in the event of a human mistake or say, earthquake, they'll safely shut down. In other words, meltdown proof. Do you really think he believes tech will never change? No. He simply reali...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

June 25, 2018 . Boston Globe: "The notion that renewable energies and batteries alone will provide all needed energy is fantastical. It is also a grotesque idea, because of the staggering environmental pollution from mining and material disposal, if all energy was derived from renewables and batter...

Re: (As I’ve been saying all along) World's top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capita

"Clean energy is the future." Yet NASA's James Hansen, who for decades pushed the global warming issue, is on record of saying that both wind and solar won't provide us enough 24/7/365 energy. He's a proponent of nuclear which has an extremely tiny plant and tree food footprint. "Regardless of your...

You’re very right about the political nature of this issue. But the genesis of the dispute is, to me, telling. This is to me a classic example of the Right disliking and so opposing science that conflicts with its ideological and business-oriented constituencies. Wrong. We dislike science that is b...

Re: Micheal Mann: "level of warmth that we’ve now reached is unprecedented in tens of thousands of years"

The end of the Permian Age was about 250,000,000 years ago, and the climate change probably caused the extinction of about 90% of the life on Earth.That's more than tens of thousands of years by a considerable margin. Doesn't matter. It's happened before and more than once. 10,000 years out of 4 bi...
