I thought you'd link to the sun engulfing the earth. By the time the climate's on the path to being Venus-like, we'd be knocked back to the stone age or worse, slowing climate change to a pace evolution might be able to keep up with. I'm sure some extremophiles would hang on at the very least.
Excellent for radioactive boars, bloodsuckers and chimeras.
So when it comes to getting special treatment from the justice system, cops trump rich dudes...not what I expected.
(I don't mean the people who question how to address the problem - that's still legitimately an open question - or the severity of the problem, I mean the people still in denial that there's a problem at all.)
Careful what you wish for - the next, and final stage in the evolution of climate denialism is for it to take a rather different, more difficult form:
Hey global warming could never end life on this planet. Our civilization as we know it, on the other hand...
That Reason article redzoned my bullshitometer, I found this explanation:
So they're saying women don't want to edit on Wikipedia because it isn't pretty enough and doesn't let them call attention to themselves? O_O This is going to cause a runaway reaction of feminist anger that will destroy the universe!
The US can't afford to perform any surgeries. The theoretical important future conflicts you wouldn't be able to afford after pissing it all away invading Afghanistan and Iraq? They were Syria and Ukraine.
Sorry I couldn't hear you over the aftershocks of Mt. Gox's collapse.
Eugenicsy? Maybe. Too slow? Hell yes.
Oh so now the climate's really important to you?
I'll see your reasons for having a nicer climate and raise you 1 mass extinction. What's your plan for that, sprinkle hunger-suppressing drugs into the water?
If we're being responsible, it's not about choosing between cutting sunlight and cutting CO2 emissions, it's about CO2 cuts first and then maybe cutting sunlight. Just cutting sunlight and acting like it's fixing global warming is a joke (the punchline is mass extinction again! Hahaha!).
A good way to keep a few billion people from starving to death is to have a few billion less people in the future. We're starting to get population levels under control, so we're on the right path as long as we never, ever follow the advice of the nutball economists suggesting we should increase poopulation levels to keep their silly game running (I guess we need more unemployed people?).
It was funny the first time, but this is really annoying now.
Then, I ran up to him, shook him around, and screamed, "Where is it!? Where is my computer!?"
I automatically read this in Christian Bale Batman voice XD
So what? They weren't anti-science. They didn't think that science and religion cannot occupy the same space. If they did, they would have been taking chunks out of their god with their work.
I, for one, welcome our new raccoon-descended overlords.
