HughBe--- I would use the word DUTY instead of DEBT even if legally it is called a DEBT.
I am inclined to see it as FORCED payments that are determined by others without my input.
I am also inclined to see it as COVETOUSNESS by those who have power to take my money against my will.
In essence it is a type of extortion.
Well then you agree more with the other fellow, Voluntarist.

He and I have had a long discussion on the subject.

Taxes are certainly forced on us but I would argue partially with my own input as I'm a voter and agree with some though not all uses of my tax money.

We speak in terms of "tax liability."
Liabilities are debts. any way you look at it.
Consider yourself schooled yet again.

Gee I looked at a form where it states "amount you owe" and it was blank.
Are you insisting that some words on a piece of paper mean that there is a debt?

So would that be payment on a contract or a tort?

In Jamaica it just might be the case that taxation is implemented without representation. If so, I can certainly understand how that might frustrate someone like Hughbe, who craves control.

Here in the US, obviously we do have an input.

The 97% consensus – a lie of
epic proportions
Posted by Anthony Watts
To John Cook – it isn’t ‘hate’, it’s pity,– pity
for having such a weak argument you are
forced to fabricate conclusions of epic
proportions
Proving that crap can flow uphill, yesterday,
John Cook got what one could consider the
ultimate endorsement. A tweet from the
Twitter account of the Twitterer in Chief,
Barack Obama, about Cook’s 97% consensus
lie.
I had to laugh about the breathless headlines
over that tweet, such as this one from the
Washington Post’s Valerie Strauss at The
Answer Sheet:
Here’s the genesis of the lie. When you take a
result of 32.6% of all papers that accept AGW,
ignoring the 66% that don’t , and twist that
into 97%, excluding any mention of that
original value in your media reports, there’s
nothing else to call it – a lie of presidential
proportions. From the original press release
about the paper:
Exhibit 1:
From the 11 994 papers, 32.6 per cent
endorsed AGW, 66.4 per cent stated no
position on AGW, 0.7 per cent rejected AGW
and in 0.3 per cent of papers, the authors said
the cause of global warming was uncertain.
Exhibit 2:
“Our findings prove that there is a strong
scientific agreement about the cause of
climate change, despite public perceptions to
the contrary.”
I pity people whose argument is so weak they
have to lie like this to get attention, I pity even
more the lazy journalists that latch onto lies
like this without even bothering to ask a single
critical question.
Of course try to find a single mention of that
32.6 percent figure in any of the news reports,
or on Cook’s announcement on his own
website .

Reread the post. It had nothing to do with accepting the UN as an authority. In fact, the point the author (not me) was making was that it didnt matter WHAT the international scientists (What you are calling the UN) thought

Reading Comprehension!!

I WON'T BOTHER explaining to you why your post misses the point. I'll let you figure it out again by reading this:

"Many studies simply defer to the expert summary of climate science research put together by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which states that most of the global warming since the mid-20th century has been caused by humans. According to recent research, that statement is actually too conservative..."

The sum total of carbon in various forms on earth is fixed and unless carbon as CO2 or in any other form is increasing in volume as a result of being generated in huge amounts on earth or is entering the earth's atmosphere from extra-terrestrial sources, we need not panic about fluctuations in the amount of CO2 in the earth's atmosphere. These are temporary and local phenomena. Rise/fall of CO2 levels is a natural geochemical cycle linked to the unlocking or conversion of locked carbon into carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other forms of carbon.

SCIENTIST MAY LOSE JOBS OF THEY DEBUNK GLOBAL WARMING:

ROFL:

Although the number of publicly dissenting scientists is growing, many young scientists furtively say that while they also have serious doubts about the global-warming message, they are afraid to speak up for fear of not being promoted—or worse. They have good reason to worry. In 2003, Dr. Chris de Freitas, the editor of the journal Climate Research, dared to publish a peer-reviewed article with the politically incorrect (but factually correct) conclusion that the recent warming is not unusual in the context of climate changes over the past thousand years. The international warming establishment quickly mounted a determined campaign to have Dr. de Freitas removed from his editorial job and fired from his university position. Fortunately, Dr. de Freitas was able to keep his university job.

Mathematically challenged fools with a poor grasp of scientific concepts and zero reasoning skills are toeing the questionable line of the establishment. These fools cannot even calculate the oxidation state of an element in a redox reaction and are attempting to debate global warming. LOL.

They all believed back in the 80's that we'd be relegated to living indoors or contract skin cancer or whatever because of the thinning in the ozone layer. LOL.

Is H2O a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2 given its high specific heat capacity?

So, could it be that H2O as water vapor accounts for around 90% of the greenhouse effect with CO2 and CH4 contributing the rest? It's said that 5% to 8% of the CO2 emitted comes from man-made sources.
