Oh, we can do that and have been doing that at GITMO for s forty-odd years now. Now, the trick is to make it economical!!!

Or maybe its because we weren't alive 100 or 200 or 500 or 1000 years ago to have them to compare too. The reality is Linktv, history doesn't begin the day we were born, or become aware of our surroundings and environment. Everything you listed above has been happening for millions of years, along with volcanic eruptions, mudslides, flooding, and ice ages. Science shows the planet has even flipped its polarity more then once in the earths conform to what they demand, which is control and power over you. The reality is that they are only making predictions, and these are based on flawed computer models using data that they feed into programs that they wrote. They cannot factor in water vapor, changing ocean currents, solar flares and other astronomical effects on the planet. For crying out loud, they want us to label carbon dioxide a pollutant. Thats as insane as labeling oxygen a pollutant, or methane a pollutant. Those gases, and so many others are naturally produced by the planet and its inhabitants, and have been FOREVER. Remember the ozone hole that we were all supposed to be freaked out about? It happens every seasonal cycle and always has. Do yourself a favor and be a skeptic, not a sucker. Arctic ice is on the increase at both poles. There are more polar bears today when we first started counting them. There are actually fewer hurricanes now then twenty or thirty years ago because it runs in cycles. Volcanic activity for the moment is at a low, but there will continue to eruptions, and tornadoes, and earthquakes, and lots of people will die from them. It's called mother nature and we cannot control it, and anyone that says we can is a liar. Thats just the truth, and we should all have enough common sense to accept that.
I am the number one cynic and skeptic on the planet when it comes to politics.

I know the corporate centrists Democrats like Obama and Clinton sold me out years ago.

You should take your own advice Skeptic and look in the mirror.

The people you refer to as socialist do not exists in Washington DC.

Obama reneged on just about everything and continued over 90% of all corporate rightwing Bush / Cheney failed and illegal policies.

I am certainly not a scientist and neither are you.

Scientist and Doctors are way above my pay grade and if somebody gets sick and needs an operation it is good to get a second and even a third opinion.

Most all Scientists agree about climate change so why should I put my trust in Exxon/Mobil or Rush Limbaugh to tell me what is really going on in this world?

I have a question for you Skeptic my friend: Because of the energy crisis in the 1970s President Carter put Solar Panels on the White House roof and Reagan had them removed.

Now if most Americans put solar panels on our roofs wouldn't that save us all money for gas/oil?

Scientists Gather to Finalize Dire Warning for Planet's Climate Future
World's scientists meet in Japan to complete summary of report that paints bleak future if climate inaction continues / March 25, 2014 / http://tinyurl.com/kyuh879
The world's leading climate scientists gathered in Japan on Tuesday to begin hashing out the final details of a "grim" climate report, which both leaked drafts and those familiar with its contents say will call on policy makers to take immediate action or face a climate future that will otherwise be marked by widespread ecological and human catastrophe.
Of those harsh challenges, the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report—according to a draft version of the leaked earlier this year— will show that the four degrees Celsius rise that we are currently careening towards will undoubtedly cause increasing natural disasters, including: more violent storms, forest fires, devastating droughts, flooding, widespread hunger, disease, and a rise in ocean levels by up to a meter.

God is more concern about the health of our soul than our bodies. How long is eternity as compared to our time on Earth? It is not important how long you live but how well you live.
How often do you do random acts of kindness? To me, charity is more personal like stopping to mount someone's spare tire or take them to a hospital.
On my 60th birthday I was having breakfast at a .Cracker Barrel when an elderly woman fainted and cracked her head on the floor. I had been dating my nurse girl friend only about two months at the time and impressed her very much.
At the end, I road with the other elderly woman in her car to the hospital as her friend took te ambulance ride and my girlfriend drove my car. I stayed with them until noon and the woman was checked out and her cut stitched and they were able to get back on the road. Sooooo I had my birthday breakfast out of a vending machine! No big deal. I hope someone would do that for my mother if the situation occurred.

One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedy came upon a large raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side but had no idea how to do so.
The first man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strenght to cross this river". Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours, but not after almost drowning a couple of times.
Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength,.....and the tools to cross this river". Poof! God gave him a rowboat and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, but not after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.
The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give the the strength and the tools ,....and the intelligence to cross ths river". And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple hundred yards and walked across the bridge.

And that's the way it is.

Thank you Scrutiny. I am honored to have such a compliment coming from you, and I agree with the you that it is necessary to develop as much understanding about the earth and its natural functions as we can. I would never oppose sound, objective science but would also never allow myself to be suckered into the arrogance that the pseudo science prognosticators suggest is reality. There is danger in believing the propaganda coming from those that don't know what they don't know, but think they know it all. I'm not saying these people are stupid, as that is most definitely not the case, but overeducated ignorance is the bubble that they live in. Surrounding yourself with like minded thinkers and answering to those that want to hear only what they want to hear is the problem.
Here is your problem, Obskeptic,. and I suggest it's right winger problem. In the same sentence, you write : "I would never oppose sound, objective science", yet, without even pausing, you continue with "but would also never allow myself to be suckered into the arrogance that the pseudo science prognosticators suggest is reality" .

Top Ten Congressional Lobbying Scandals in US History
http://blog.oup.com/2006/03/congressional_l/ / http://tinyurl.com/6xdkuf

1. 1857, the New York Times published an expose of lobbying for the Pacific Railroad bill, charging that lobbyists had shaped a bill in order to pillage federal lands. The House opened an investigation that led four representatives to resign (the House also expelled from its galleries the Times reporter who broke the story).

2. 1872, the New York Sun exposed the Credit Mobilier scandal, where a railroad lobbyist provided stock to members of Congress to make them more likely to increase appropriations for transcontinental railroad construction. Both the Senate and House investigated the charges, which ruined the careers of two vice presidents, a Speaker, and other members of both bodies.

3. 1906, Cosmopolitan magazine publishes David Graham Phillips’ series of muckraking exposes on the “Treason of the Senate,” in which he accused prominent senators of representing special interests rather than the public interest. The series contributes to political pressure that results in the Seventeenth Amendment requiring senators to be elected by the public rather than by state legislatures.

4. 1913, the New York World ran an expose of questionable tactics by a lobbyist for the National Association of Manufacturers seeking to influence tariff rates. One member of the House resigned and the House passed a bill requiring lobbyists to register with Congress. The Senate declined to go along with the reform.
5. 1929, the New York World accused Connecticut Senator Hiram Bingham of bringing a paid agent for the Connecticut Manufacturers’ Association into closed committee meetings on a pending tariff bill. The Senate investigated and censured Bingham (previously prominent as the discoverer of Machu Picchu), who was then defeated for reelection.

6. 1962, a Des Moines Register correspondent reported that Senate Majority Secretary Bobby Baker accepted favors from lobbyists in exchange for providing access to powerful senators. A Senate committee investigated and Baker was later convicted of income tax evasion.

7. 1976, the Washington Post broke the story that the Justice Department was investigating South Korean agent Tongsun Park, who had distributed illegal gifts to members of Congress. Congressional investigation of “Koreagate” ended with the reprimand of three members of the House and the indictment of two others.
http://blog.oup.com/2006/03/congressional_l/

8. 1990, accounts in the Orange County Register, the Mesa [Arizona] Tribune, the Detroit News, the Los Angeles Times, the Arizona Republic, and the Wall Street Journal revealed that five senators met with the head of the Federal Home Loan Bank Board about the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, whose head, Charles H. Keating, Jr. had made substantial contributions to their political campaigns. The Senate Ethics Committee investigated the Keating Five, and reprimanded one of them, California Senator Alan Cranston.

9. 2005, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported a bribery scandal involving lobbyists’ gifts and payments to Representative Randy “Duke” Cunningham that led to his resignation from Congress and criminal conviction./ 10. 2005, Washington Post reporters revealed that Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff was the central figure in a congressional corruption scandal, as Justice Department prosecutors investigated him for fraud and bribery allegations./ http://blog.oup.com/2006/03/congressional_l/

I agree 100%. And yes, why aren't we doing it right now?

Why,also, are we not using more tide power to produce electricity? Tide in, turbines turn, water is stored, tide out, flow of water is reversed, trubines turn.

Er., Rogue, you still haven't told us who cancelled the shuttle programme. C'mon, ask Foxnews-com.

P.§" : And American astronaut took off yesterday with two Russian colleagues aboard Soyuz. So, cooperation in that domaine is still working. Tripled costs,uh? Still a hell of a lot cheaper than launching rockets and shuttles. And safer.

Science is questions that may never be answered, religion is answers that may not be questioned. I can't help that you were commanded what to think by an old white guy in a robe.

If you think a bunch of stories written by bronze age tribesmen that has failed marvelously on every single attempt to explain the world... outweighs hundreds of years of astronomy, biology, geology, history, then no one can help you. Contradiction, plagiarism, revision.. that is the foundation of truth, right?

The universe is flat. Not by the definition you understand... but flat none the less. Same as the definitions of "theory" and "nothing". They mean different things to scientifically literate people.

What fills ME with awe.. is that people swallow it. Even when I was 8 years old, I understood that I was being lied to. There are a lot of people who tolerate it, I just can't imagine why.

SO to his B certificate...And what distributions are to some people and how much of value is placed for matter's sake on anything pick something...

I do ask myself does that man seem like someone that is or would be eager to leave much behind?

In that sense of what he was part in of creating...

Would he strap bombs onto his children and set them out, is really what I am asking...

To what some are or can be or would be willing to sacrifice if you put it toward electing someone for office, can we claim it as task......
It's really the same as choosing someone for a benefit...

What a promise would be to a people?

Self interest in that for sure...

Scrutiny - you'll enjoy this. A friend of mine just finished a consulting project for the "Creation Museum".(The KY folks that pretend that God literally created dinosaurs one day and man the next, and that Noah had two of each Dino on the Ark ...). The entry to the "museum" includes a Dino wearing a saddle!(How can you not laugh at that?).

One exceptionally ardent friend of ours was beside herself that he would do business with such a group.(Not surprisingly - she also has the ability to fill an entire evening explaining why bakeries should be required to make cakes for Gay weddings).

I saw an inventor on "shark tank" with such a machine.

It was a tower a bit off shore that used a vortex and some chemistry... looked like a 40 meter water tornado.

He claims that it will not only separate salt from water, but the byproduct is gold.

The "sharks" looked at this thing and all immediately bowed out. The look of astonishment on this guy's face was priceless.

There IS a tiny amount of gold in ocean water, and if you are pumping out as much fresh water as the man claimed... it adds up to Kilos a week.

I can't find it on youtube... too many water words... all I get is fish.

I'll keep trying.
