Everybody should be depressed and angry but they are complacent. New chief executive, same ole shit. Corruption and lies.
You couldn't address any points could you? Did you know before photographs existed we have evidence of glaciers covering the northern US? Due to climate change glaciers advanced and retreated. Our current observations line up nicely with the Vostok ice core. You know that during the little ice age in Europe glaciers advanced and then retreated after it warmed? Tell me about the humidity and it making winters colder again.
I think we are at an inflection point. So it is your thesis that higher humidity has led to higher snow packs in the Colorado river basin and temperature has no effect on that? Why is the runoff just staring now? Go to http://lakepowell.water-data.c... and see that due to the cool spring runoff is just starting and the lake is 2-4 degrees cooler than it usually is this time of year. I suppose higher humidty caused the long winter in the North Eastern US this winter as well? It caused the unusually cool weather in the south? High humdity from global warming made it a cooler than normal winter?
Extinction comes from not being able to adapt to change, and we need to focus on that. We can't stop the change.
We aren't even nearly as warm as we've been in the past via the flora and fauna record and we've stalled for the past 6 years, actually cooled the last couple of years, which no models predicted. It's theory, not fact because there are holes that can't be explained in the theory. Societies have grown and collapsed due to climate change in the past so what we need to focus on is dealing with climate variation. Check out the snow pack in the Colorado Rockies right now, runoff hasn't even taken off yet due to cold and snow, it is just starting to build now, in late May. Arapahoe Basin ski area is still open with a 73" base. It stays open until early May through early June usually but might even make it to July 4th this year like it did in 2011 when the base was in the 90" range in May. So twice in four years the snow pack is well above median and average.
It is stuff like this that bums me out, not the fact that we are so young on this planet that we are surprised that climate isn't stable.
When does observation become spying?
You assume they are different? If I'm spying on you I'm observing you. Spying is just covert observation.
I do understand what it is. It is a right and a privilege. I have the freedom to use this site. I don't have a firewall blocking me. The gestapo will not take me in the night for using it. The black helicopters are coming for you.
It does seem that there are cultures out there that like that kind of rule.
The US is more capable but we have a long history of voting out that which we don't like. So is your day to day life really changing? Black helicopters. Black suited men at the hipster coffee shop checking you out?
Russia will give us Internet pharmacy's and ugly porn.
The very computer you are typing on would not exist if not for capitalism. Profit drives all and makes us better off. Resources are finite and those that work for them will get them. Being tired at the end of the day doesn't make you a hard worker.
That doesn't make it right. I'd rather live in the US with our freedoms and if there are people living here that really find it so oppresive they should take every opportunity afforded them to move to some other utopia. I'm a libertarian and while I find our government too big and overreaching, at the end of the day I'm not denied my life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
About as good as yourself.
I'm not drawing attention to him, I'm making a statement on attention being drawn to him, asking Slashdot if they can just ignore him.
