Investments into
"clean"
energy technologies

Species are already relocating, ice caps are melting faster than
"scientists predicted,"
and extreme weather events are becoming more common and costly.

More scientific science fiction they really don't know.There should be a new hedge fund set up to pay on scientific science fiction errors.

Yes, yes, we know that you claim to think it's science fiction. What we don't know, because you're incapable of logical discourse, is why you apparently think so.

So tell us, why are you, an uneducated dufus (PHD, my arse), right and a million real PHD's wrong? Hmmm?

Say something intelligent or shut your hole.

Now this may confuse your limmited mental capacity. Science leaves no doubt and scientific sceince fiction is uses terms as my opinion,prediction, could be, should be, forecast and a host of useless babble. Now shut your pie hole and get a real education.

Your post is laughable, proving the following:

"fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" is a toxic topix AGW denier without science & mathematics degrees or upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa (or no DEE-ploomaa, at all), who pops its ugly, copied & repeating posts on topix AGW threads.

Pay no attention to "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend", who is a toxic topix AGW denier without science & mathematics degrees or upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa (or no DEE-ploomaa, at all), who pops its ugly, copied & repeating posts on topix AGW threads.

Of course, "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" is also, a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener & supporter of such.

This shows you don't know science.
The scientist has a lot of experience with ignorance and doubt and uncertainty, and this experience is of very great importance, I think. When a scientist doesn't know the answer to a problem, he is ignorant. When he has a hunch as to what the result is, he is uncertain. And when he is pretty darned sure of what the result is going to be, he is in some doubt. We have found it of paramount importance that in order to progress we must recognize the ignorance and leave room for doubt. Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty -- some most unsure, some nearly sure, none absolutely certain.

Now, we scientists are used to this, and we take it for granted that it is perfectly consistent to be unsure - that it is possible to live and not know. But I don't know whether everyone realizes that this is true. Our freedom to doubt was born of a struggle against authority in the early days of science. It was a very deep and strong struggle. Permit us to question -- to doubt, that's all -- and not to be sure....

You see, one thing, is I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think itís much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers and possible beliefs and different degrees of certainty about different things but Iím not absolutely sure of anything and then many things I donít know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask,ďWhy we are here?Ē and what that question might mean. I might think about it a bit and then if I canít figure it out then I go on to something else.

But I donít have to know an answer, I donít have toÖi donít feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose which is the way it really is as far as I can tell possibly. It doesnít frighten me.Ē

If you have a 401(k) you need to pay attention to what the funds you have invested in are investing in.

Good business invests in the future, whatever that future is.

You just proved that you not only don;t understand the most fundamental concepts of science, you actually HAVE THEM COMPLETELY BACKWARDS!

Please, please keep posting, you f-tard. You're the gift that keeps on giving.

Well you managed to prove beyond any doubt that you have no mental capacity to know the difference. Now all will know why there are so many recalls with the auto Ind. Keep up the good engineering job you do the competition sure does appreciate what youíre doing.
