Comment: A question for the 'climate change' fraudsters.. (Score -1, Troll) 232

What ever happened to the previous environmental scares used to try and drum up funding for your pseudo-science?

- We were told acid rain would destroy European forests. Hmm doesn't seem to have happened.

- We were told CFCs were destroying the ozone layer and causing wild animals to go blind. We banned CFCs and it has had no effect on the hole in the ozone layer and the claims of blindness have been proven to be lies.

- We were told that the Sahara desert was growing south: what actually happened was the area got greener!

Environmental scare stories, of which the impact of Climate Change is just the latest incarnation, has a long and dishonourable history of dishonesty.

And I think Swift is rather disappointing.

Given the opportunity to make a clean sweep and introduce a modern language for OSX and iOS Apple decided to make one that is so fatally flawed in so many ways.

Type-casting -oh my lord type casting- is so astoundingly bad in Swift it really beggars belief that in the 21st century anyone could design something that bad!

A few thousand years is no time at all in evolutionary terms.

So I assume you're arguing that bread is something we haven't yet evolved to safely digest?

I agree: I'd go as far as to say that gluten intolerance and diabetes could be considered part of the evolutionary process, weeding out those of us who lack the genes to safely digest high carb, cereal based, diets.
