Comment He's a lukewarmist, not a denier (Score 2) 286

How can anybody call him a "denier" when he acknowledged global warming in the first twenty seconds of the cited video?

He is more of a lukewarmist, meaning that he agrees that the climate is changing, is not certain that's a bad thing, and reserves judgment on controlling emissions until there is more data to confirm the models' predictions.

Hi, drinky. Still being an idiot after all these years. Yes, you can find a very small number of instances of "open source", but it wasn't widely used (as it is now), it didn't have an explicit definition (as it does now), and it didn't have a cadre of people dedicated to promoting it (as it does now; points at yours truly).

The fact that you hate Open Source; that you hate the OSI; cannot change the fact that we created Open Source as it is used now.

In short, STFU, stupid.

There are no free markets. There are only markets controlled by governments and markets controlled by customers. The markets controlled by customers work out pretty well for customers. The markets controlled by governments work out pretty well for governments and the politicians that run them and the lobbyists who fund them and the corporations who make money because the politicians control the markets in their favor.
