Global Warming

Once slow-moving threat, global warming speeds up, leavin...

Global warming like the warnings about an approaching ice age back in the seventies is all about a political agenda to reengineer society, The part about energy is to convince people to move back into cities and into cramp apartments where they can move people around in electric trams and living a minimalist lifestyle. It would be far easier when you have the majority of the population in such a situation to implement ideas like eliminating veganism when you can just make meat scarce. The reality is that it is an excuse to demand control. Otherwise, people will just ignore them. Communism/socialis m like what they are pushing needs a looming calamity to work and without it, without such a threat, people will refuse to submit.  (Sunday | post #67129)

Actually, it began far earlier. Telegraph, wireless, internal combustion engines,, the electric light, and a host of other technological developments came out of the industrial revolution and had little to do with government. A real technological spurt. Additional technological development came out of all things war. Penicillin, radar, jet engine, rocketry, food storage, and other such came out of the wars. The Nazi’s for example pushed the cutting edge of aviation including development of the Fritz X, V1, and V2 did more for your putting a man in orbit and eventually the moon. Even the Cold War, with it’s arms race to mount nuclear weapons on ICBM’s, had much to do with it. Remember, before NASA, the USAF was the one pushing to put a man into orbit. The truth is the government got into the game late and then it was more of a military impetrative and national pride than your technological spurt. If the world had occurred the way you are talking about, we would still be living as they did in the fifties.  (Sunday | post #67128)

Controlled capitalism is actually communism, which is very similar to socialsim. Many communinist and socialist tend to borrow ideas and concepts from each other. And you are right that is what they have in Scandinavian countries and various parts of Europe, notice how many of those Scandinavian countries are only able to make it work thanks to massive influxes of income from oil revenues and others such as those countries in Europe are experienceing serious economy troubles, not to mention how the EU is falling apart under the load. As for the claim that education, health care, crime & social welfare along with wealth distribution, works better, care to actually prove that. Wealth distribution as shown in many countries such as Italy , Greece, and Venzulaia, has proven it does not work anywhere near as well. Education, exactly what we have in the US and it has been a embarrassement for decades. Europe is doing a little better, but not that much better. Crime, really, crime in Europe has gotten worse and in some parts of countries like France, the police will not go. Other places in Europe, when they way stop or we will shoot, they do and it just is considered so normal, that no one remarks on it. Italy is one such place. As for statsitics, as Samual Clemmons once quipped, there are lies, damm lies, and statsitics. I could produce statistics that claim yo are a turnip. Like polls, statistics are something that can be twisted to support almost any point of view. I also have to point out that Canadians do sometimes come down to the states for vacations, and a big reason has been because they can get treatment far faster for a major medical issue. In other words, those who are sick in Canada are not and have not been happy with what they have. Funny how you mentioned China. Part of the reason why they have adopted many capitialist methods over socialists, communist or as you call it controlled capitalist, is because unlike all of those, capatalist work. It is far more flexable and responsive to needs than your controlled capitalism (communism). It does not matter how many times you repeat the fantasy, it will not change the facts and that includes the ones about how it has failed. Cuba, Venzulia, Itally, Greece, are all just examples.  (Sunday | post #67126)

I think you got part of it wrong. Plants use CO2 and and produce O2 as a result. Actually, they only use the carbon and release the O2 back into the atmosphere.  (Sunday | post #2128)

Global Cooling

It is of plant resperation. Animinals as a rule emit CO2 and plants emit O2. Of course you need to claim otherwise since if plants are absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, doubling the CO2 levels would only enhance the growth of plants, resulting is more and larger plants. Something the average person would notice, even in an arid enviroment.  (Sunday | post #2127)

Actually I have. How else would I have known about ATP and how it is involved in plant resperation. Maybe you should follow your own advice and really study the subject.  (Sunday | post #2126)

Global Warming Standup Comedy

What you have failed to repeatedly understand that the levels of CO2 are a demostrated effect and not a cause. The temperatures rise then after a definite period of time the levels of CO2 rise. In addition, yo seem to have missed the fact that CO2 is by defintion a trace gas.In other words, less than one percent by volume. There are far higher concentrations of O2 and Argon than CO2, so why not blame them for global warming, simple, you cannot claim that they are the result of man. O2 for example, even with it's far higher effect on atmosphere thermaldynamics is hard to paint as a villian since we need it to survive. Meanwhile CO2 can be linked to fossil fuels and make a very convient scapegoat. One of the reasons why CO2 failed the scientific test for global warming was the ract that it makes up less than one percent of the atmosphere. Which is the reason why they had to also include water vapor and CH4 ad GHG's. You really do need to study the subject seriously, not just rely on those sources that feed your bias. Challange those biases and you will discover far more than feeding them. http://climate.ncs u.edu/edu/k12/.Atm Composition  (Sunday | post #4881)

POTUS Ensures No Trump Tampering with West Coast

YOu hope Trump will be worse than Obama. Problem is that would be a hard task given how badly Obama has done in the past two terms. As for measuring the Trump presidency to the Obama presidency, Trump has not been sworn into office. Of course, the markets seem to be looking at him favorably. The economy didn't tumble like it did when they discovered Obama had won.  (Sunday Nov 27 | post #33)

No, he was elected twice and was known to have a history even before he was elected Governor. Then again, he was a democrat and for you, it would not matter if Bill Clinton was a pedifile and all Trump had done was kiss a few girls. The typical double standard held by all like you. It does not matter Bill Clinton has done far worse. That Hillary Clinton was willing to help cover it up and ruin those same women. Both were blue canodates.  (Sunday Nov 27 | post #1520)

I think you meant to say that O2 is the byproduct of our respiration. Flora as the rule absorbs CO2 and emits O2 and fauna absorbs O2 and emits CO2. Something Bozo seems to have a problem with.  (Sunday Nov 27 | post #2088)

Really, and yet you and those like you shy away from any one set standard that you will apply to both equally. You also make claims without proving any proof to back it up. For example, you claim the Middle East is not as bad as when Bush was in office, then why are there so many more Muslim refugees. How about the situation in Libya which is now worse as well, or how about Egypt. All of which happened after Bush was out of office. Which is funny on how you are still trying to pin things that have happened in the last four years on someone who has been out of office for nearly eight now. If anything Obama inherited a Middle East is more at peace than nearly any time in the last hundred years. As for the national debt, I have done my research and you must not of bothered to look. Even with record revenues, we still have a skyrocketing debt, far higher than any time in history. As for tax cuts for the rich, you mean the tax cuts for pet liberal projects. The rich have been hitting the eject button and taking their wealth with them for almost a decade. Any tax cuts for the rich was just an attempt to keep those like Buffet from heading out to greener pastures and those campaign donations with them. As for that CLinton budget surplus, it was more fiction since the surplus was the result of the government not paying the bills, replacing those Tomahawks that he was shooting off every time he had a embarrassing gaff at home. As for stepping up, why not step up yourself with something that works. I have already stated some of what needs to change. For example, having one health care market for the entire country, not the one in each state.  (Sunday Nov 27 | post #31)

Did you realized that Mexico has a minimum wage, and yet according to your post, they have poverty. As for when the US was most productive, I noticed that you did not say when that was. As for capitalism having things that it would not solve, have yo ever noticed that socialism has never managed to solve any problems. If anything, socialism has often made things worse such as it has in Venezuela. And you really should broaden the amount of news sources you use and include those like Fox which will tell you much of what the rest of the main stream news outlets will not, can not.  (Sunday Nov 27 | post #67045)
