And if the country you live in happens to be one of the 31 most threatened by sea level rise?
I'm somewhat skeptical of the whole corrupt system, all the way through, but all the muck brought up on Clintonia is NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING compared to the death, destruction, global disruption actions of the war criminals Dubyah and Dick
Perhaps it only peripherally relates, but... I'm interested in the team that recycles all these damn plastic wrappers, bags, bottles and endless polymer stuff into usable 3D printer raw material. Now let's se THAT breakthrough!
Imagine the potential for artists' mural space, and what if they found a way to use "sea plastic" to fill the concrete? More beautiful?
So how much of that $billion goes for hot babes working as "drug reps' and free lunches, boondoggles, fake Expert Speaker colloquia, with the gourmet luncheons and FDA payoff cash?
Perhaps the recent Congress shift to the wrong (since they're a federally funded organization) has been dabbling in the "We don't want this kind of scientific stuff going on on in OUR country, Kids will start believing that all oil all the time isn't sustainable oh my! And that Jesus riding a dinosaur isn't the way our " made it in a week universe" works.
What y'all are missing is the suppliers know exactly what the fluorocarbons are when formulating, what the unkown is, that is exhautive to test for, is that in a fire, all sorts of other compounds may be present, and
...they're on fire! Hence, lots of transformation may take place that are redonculously difficult to predict. Get over it. Most of the compounds get flushed out if the firefighters drink enough beer.
Then they should pay the tax on it, it was the economic environment here that allowed it to grow. Maybe they should be deported and they can live with their money.
C'mon you clowns with the offshore cash, bring it home, SAVE THE SHACK, dammit!
Line of sight - check; Above most clouds for isolation: energy source; Cash flow to sustain upkeep and program expansion; Robot piloted? Deployable anywhere; How can I invest?
How about raising home insurance rates if you publicly declare that you are a climate change denier, those of who do get it shouldn't have to pony up as much as those who ' don't believe the risk is real'.
So we need a new term that refers to the, non-malicious sensible demonstration of system vulnerabilities. Hacking is a violent term and dredges up connotations of evil, or at least intense coughing. How about 'Slacking' - 'Door Pointing' - or 'Hewlett-Turoning' (give the kids some fame!)

Take your politically colored blinders off, Rose produced nothing but propaganda for the anti-science movement. His "official" graph is a fabrication, (see http://www.windows2universe.org/earth/climate/climate_today.html and http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/graphs_v3/ and Rose cites no authorities. Referring back to the main thread - the hour of 'lights out' would be much better spent if everyone sought out ways and actually acted on them consistently to reduce their energy demand. Like cleaning out and turning off that 2nd refrigerator - turning the heat down, unplugging your device charges when you aren't using them, just use less energy, or we're all screwed. Especially future generations.
