You are a complete idiot. Every land in the entire world is the result of invasion, culture clash and loss. Just because you want to be 6 years old in your thinking and chose some arbitrary date in your head to decide who the land belonged to then is who it belongs to now, is no reason for me to bury my head in a mound of poop with you.
The native Americans lost, too frickin bad, boo hoo. The winners write the history books, and "euros" as you put it, are the biggest winners in history because they are culturally superior. Most of the modern world's technology came from those "euros". You wouldn't be there sitting on your brains typing on a computer if it weren't for euros. If you can't defend your culture, it is inferior.

"bullshit" is so enamored with survival of the fittest, any philosophy seeking other than bloodlust, must be stamped out, with invective & probably with other actions not condoned in our courts of law. "bullshit" must think our cultures must become more ravenous & self-devouring....... to become noble. "bullshit" is bullshit.

It is really sad to see you advocate for malfunctioning and maladaption in culture. Liberals are that malfunction and maladaption in our own society, proposing changes just for the sake of change over what has been proven to work.

Sadly for your head up your butt philosophy, the correct cultural decision is what works for the majority. Simply put it is a numbers game, and no amount of crying due to impaction of silicon particulates in your fibromuscular tubular tract, will change that. The only bullshit here is what is between your iwn ears.

Only an idiot would dismiss the effects of the largest energy source, and indeed the largest object in our system as the primary determinant on weather and blame man.

The sun,as a primary determent,is not in question. You might move on to a more structured account of your statement..

Yes, thank you for the "incite"...
Perhaps you would wish to comment on the various relationships below ...



.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was low. Region 1865 (S21W44, Dso/beta) and Region
1861 (S08W63, Ekc/beta-gamma) continued to be the most active regions
on the visible disk. Region 1865 produced the largest flare of the period,
a C8/1n flare, at approximately 16/1432 UTC. An associated asymmetric
partial halo coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed in Lasco C2
imagery at approximately 16/1548 UTC. Analysis indicated there will
likely be an Earth-directed component, but the relatively slow speeds
(est. 386 km/s) indicate there will not likely be impacts observed
during this forecast period. Region 1861 remained the most magnetically
complex and most active region as it continued to produce several
low-level C-class flares.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be low with a chance for an M-class (R1-R2
Minor to Moderate) flare for the forecast period (17-19 Oct). The most
likely regions for M-class flare activity continue to be Regions 1861
and 1865.

Energetic Particle

.24 hr Summary...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit was at
moderate to high levels, with a peak flux value of 1540 pfu. The greater
than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit was at background
levels.

.Forecast...
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected
to be at moderate to high levels for the forecast period (17-19 Oct).
The greater than 10 MeV proton flux at geosynchronous orbit is expected
to remain at background levels.

Solar Wind

.24 hr Summary...
Solar wind parameters, measured at the ACE spacecraft, remained slightly
enhanced as a result of residual coronal hole high-speed stream (CH HSS)
effects. Speed decreased from a peak of near 540 km/s to just under 430
km/s by the end of the period. IMF total field held steady at around 4
nT, while IMF Bz waivered between 4 nT and -4 nT. Phi angle remained in
a positive (Away) orientation throughout the period.

.Forecast...
Solar wind conditions are expected to continue to decrease towards
background levels on days one and two (17 - 18 Oct) as residual effects
from the CH HSS subside. A return to ambient conditions is forecast for
day three (19 Oct).

Geospace

.24 hr Summary...
The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled.

.Forecast...
The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled with a slight
chance for active conditions on days one and two (17 - 18 Oct) as CH HSS
effects continue to wane. A return to mostly quiet conditions is
forecast for day three (19 Oct).

Seriously!
Although you may explain it if you wish...There may be others that
fail to follow the interrelatedness and mechanics as well as the consequences of major-minor changes...
I, obviously, am looking for operations and relationships overlooked by the leading intellectual institutions of the Earth.
I will take the liberty of assuming the earth's #1 brain would submit insights as yet unrealized...

I would not doubt it. Not only are you not worried about the future, you obviously don't care about those less fortunate than yourself. A perfect 'Republican'.....

If HE is listening, I hope he forgives you for your hypocrisy. A good Christian is a STEWARD of the land and not should leave it in the same shape he got it. You obviously benefited a lot from raping and exploiting the natural world yet you deny your duty to GOD because you are yourself safe from the consequences. You disgust me.

There is no basis for this insulting view. YOU are not Godly OR a good judge of science. Just arrogant and smug.

Galileo, Johannes Kepler & many other scientists were & are strong & powerful believers in God.
Lots of AGW advocates believe in God.
I'm a Christian. But I don't believe in "god's message delivered by re-pubic-lick-uns".

Your life as a non-scientist & disbeliever in science has led you to an erroneous conclusion that science believers & God-believers can't be the same person.
