exactly is the byproduct? Is the kerosene completely consumed? If not, what does it change into, and is it usable, or does it become a deadly poison? I read the article but missed that part.
You clearly do not understand the scientific method. The more you whine about being picked on, the more you demonstrate your ignorance about the scientific process. I'll just state again that Science does not take "sides". You either understand that statement or you don't...
No...My point is that science is not on any "side" Your ignorance is showing.
And the last thing either side is going to display is a touch of humility. Useful though that might be.
Well...just how often do scientists need to say "the scientific method compels us to observe, collect and analyze data, and revise our theories when those observations and data require us to do so"? Revising theories, refining our understanding, and being intellectually, is not humility. It's part of the scientific process. The deniers have other motivations.
No, I saw that memo. Last winter's polar vortex caused lake ice to return to levels not seen in decades.
No...my point was that there has never been a cell observed mutating into cancer after exposure to smoke. The same level of "proof" that climate change deniers seem to be demanding. Reasonable people accept the link in spite of the lack of such proof.
and there is no conclusive proof that cigarette smoking causes lung disease. No, really, there has never been an observation of a cell mutating after exposure to a puff of smoke. The evidence is only statistical. And yet... reasonable people can accept that the odds are that smoking is unhealthy, in spite of the lack of "hard" scientific proof. Proof of the kind that Climate Change Deniers seem to be demanding. Arctic ice that is 60% thinner than it was when our first nuclear sub crossed under it in the 60s, Old photos of curling (that obscure shuffle board type sport) on fjords that haven't frozen over in decades, the no longer needed fleet of ice breakers on our Great Lakes, fauna found further and further north every year, tree rings, ice cores, historical records...all prove...nothing...but still, reasonable people can conclude that there is a link between our draining of the carbon sinks, and greenhouse warming. It's really not a stretch is it?
Well, I just went through this..at Lowe's. There are CFL's whose packaging specifically states they can be dimmed, and CFL's whose packaging makes no such claim. Ditto with the Dimmer switch's packaging...
Not all dimmer switches are rated for CFL bulbs either. It seems that you need to pay attention to the packaging when purchasing both the bulbs and the switches. Some old dimmers will need to be replaced if CFL bulbs are to be dimmed.
answers is nonsense. We don't know, can't know, what answers science will provide, nor can we know ahead of time which questions it will answer. Just because science has not advanced to, will never advance to, the point where everything has been explained, we are not excused from pursuing knowledge within the scientific method. Religion is faith...organized in a dogmatic and doctrinal system, and to some extent, is required to exist outside of rational, honest, intellectual argument . Science is, in part, changing your mind when observation and experiment dictate that you were wrong. I am not aware of any religionist who has express a willingness to change their mind about the existence of supernatural forces causing stuff to happen. Nonsense
What does God need with a Starship?
True...Einstein's theories state that all mass distorts space/time.
NOT rebounding because of the fracking boom. Only a small fraction of the hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs lost to globalization are being replaced by the fracking industry.
There is nothing inconsiderate about doing something that they remind you to undo before landing...
It would be my right to do so. The knee defenders are narcissistic jerks. The airlines should just disable the recline option to save the narcissists from their necessity to demonstrate their self absorption.
