Wow.. i love how you worked the koch bros in there like it actually means something. But i'm not so sure you beed to force others into conserving abd sequestoring. It would appear that you are simply too selfish to go the extra mile for someone else who might not want to jump in the band wagon.

So qhy exactly is it that you think everyone else has to jump through your hoops too?

They cared just as little as they care now...

Side note: Practically all child abuse happens in families. As conservatives (and in the US that includes both major parties) use "the family" as some kind of fetish, they are not going to do anything that actually protects children.

Indeed. Unfortunately that "security" does not include security for anyone criminal, and that by now includes everyone without immunity, including children. So in the end, all members of the police and all officials will have security and everybody else will be a criminal. Such is the way of the Police State.

Because that itself is the premise of anthropogenic global warming.

Look at paleoclimatological records.
You will see a nearly-vertical (ie sudden, in climate terms) spike in temperature, like what has happened over the past century.
Moreover, this happens regularly, around every 120k years. ...and the last one was about 120k years ago, meaning it's time.

Now, I'm not saying human activity isn't making it worse, but (like the walrus case) doomsayers haven't explained how something can happen 10+ times sequentially by natural causes, but this time, when it's happening again right on schedule, THIS TIME it's humans fault?

I say look at giant holes of methane out-gassing in Siberia. Or the giant areas of highly acidic oceans that lack enough oxygen for fish to survive. Both of these are from us burning fossil fuels.

Really? Nothing to do with the fact we're coming out of an ice age, and that we're still lower than the interglacial temperatures prior to the last ice age? We're seeing these things because of fossil fuels, not for any other reason?

Actually, i started this off a little faceteously with the emphasis on someone not wanting to harm others. Eveeything you said is absolutely true for soneone acting in ill will.

I did however think that people nott qanting to harm others would act in a sense of self preservation and to the betterment of others. If what has been revieled turns out to be true, my faith in humans is not displaced but my assumptions that government and health care people would have a clue turns out to be completely incorect. This guy went to the hospital vomiting and told them where he had been citing concerns about ebola. They gave him some antibiotics and sent him home where he though it would be wise to play with kids or something. An absolute failure worse than the secret service allowing a fence jumper into the whitehouse or convicted felons serve as contract security agents.

To this day, they haven't even quarentined the people he is known to have been in cintact with. Instead, they are watching them or something stupid. You are correct- it simply won't work that way.

Passwords are implemented as a result of insecurity.
