young blacks don't make it out of the 9th grade in Chicago--that is the reason all the crime is committed by them-if they went to school they wouldn't have time.

You can't drill & get this oil.
It does not flow.
To get the oil out of the rock, you have to heat the rocks to 900 to 1000 degrees.
On average, after mining the rocks, hauling them to the processing facility, you get 10 gallons per ton of rock. a 40,0000 pound truckload would yield less than 5 barrels of oil.
You have to be the most ignorant person here. Oil shale producers are producing so much, they want to lift the ban on oil exports.

Have you figured out what the difference is between the debt and the deficit yet? Your ideas were allfuckedup yesterday.

Anyone still supporting rightists connedservative Reaganomics idiotic policies should be committed to a mental health facility.

The middle class in tatters, wages so low people working fulltime are still on govt aid, jobs outsourced, weak unions, no worker rights... the U$A has been made by Republicans a craphole, a 2nd-tier society, inferior in every way but militarily to every other developed nation.

Climate scientist’s lawsuit could wipe out conservative National Review magazine

The National Review magazine, longstanding house news organ of the establishment right, is facing a lawsuit that could shutter the publication permanently. According to The Week, a suit by a climate scientist threatens to bankrupt the already financially shaky publication and its website, the National Review Online (NRO).

Scientist Michael Mann is suing the Review over statements made by Canadian right-wing polemicist and occasional radio stand-in for Rush Limbaugh, Mark Steyn. Steyn was writing on the topic of climate change when he accused Mann of falsifying data and perpetuating intellectual fraud through his research.

Steyn went on to quote paid anti-climate science operative Rand Simberg — an employee of the right-wing think tank the Competitive Enterprise Institute — who compared Mann to Penn State’s convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky.

Mann, Simberg said, is “the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data.”

Mann sued for defamation. Steyn and the Review vowed to fight the suit, given that defamation is notoriously difficult to prove in court.

“My advice to poor Michael is to go away and bother someone else,” said Review editor Rich Lowry.“If he doesn’t have the good sense to do that, we look forward to teaching him a thing or two about the law and about how free debate works in a free country.”

As the case has played out, however, Lowry’s hubris has proven to be unwarranted.

“In July,” wrote The Week’s Damon Linker,“Judge Natalia Combs Greene rejected a motion to dismiss the suit. The defendants appealed, and last week D.C. Superior Court Judge Frederick Weisberg rejected the motion again, opening the door for the discovery phase of the lawsuit to begin.”

The Review, which has run at a loss since it was founded on money inherited by William F. Buckley, Jr. in 1955, appealed to readers and supporters for help paying its rapidly mounting legal bills.

every year 'it's snowing!",'it's cold!'.

if only the US was the only country in the world....

For example: December 2013 was an unusually warm month even though it was colder in the U.S. So let's take this past December as an example. North America was colder than the average over the past decade. But Europe and Russia were much hotter than average. India was cooler than average. Australia was warmer than average. And so on:

What happens when you add it all up? Early data suggests that December 2013 was tied for the 2nd-hottest December on record since 1979, the beginning of satellite measurements, according to data from the University of Alabama-Huntsville. Meanwhile, global average temperatures for all of 2013 are expected to be among the 10 highest since 1850 (though we still don't have a final count yet).

So you couldn't really infer all that much from a cool month in the United States.

much unlike FOXbots stepping out their front door and seeing snow on the ground, that would seem to be real science.

<cognitive dissonance>

We're sorry your side lost the Cold War.
We're sorry Bush kicked the crap out of the Islamist jihad.
We're sorry skilled workers here own (and pay for) a home, have two cars, have a bass boat and a 4-wheeler and a Harley Davidson and the time and money to play with them.
We're sorry the national parks are full with working people riding $100k RVs all across the country.
We're sorry working people are the biggest consumer of "starter homes".
We're sorry all you have to do to not be "poor" here is get a job and show up for work every day on time.

But, don't worry. The TEA Party is the only connection the country has with these facts. If you can get rid of the TEA Party, you can make your bullshit come true.
