Has he never heard of CO2? Why would any sane person want to burn all that and turn it into CO2?
Oh, yeah, profit. Fuck the Earth and all future generations, there's profit to be made! I can own sixteen mansions instead of twelve and have a bigger yacht.
Because the only people who make any money are the CEOs with the twelve mansions you mention? What about the tens of thousands of jobs that we could use in our economy, right now - or the fact that energy prices are climbing precisely when Americans are suffering through the toughest economic times since the 1920s?
CO2 is a gas vital to all life on earth. The concentration is very minute, and its effects on global temperature are totally dwarfed by the dominant greenhouse gas, water vapor. The "climatologists" are politically and economically driven, not scientifically.
I love how this comment got instantly modded to troll, when it was simply pointing out some simple truths about biology, ecology, and politics.
What does DARPA have to do with the NSF?
Interesting...As a physicist, I attack string theory.
My main problem is it's method of development. Unlike most of the rest of the theories in the history of physics, string theory seems to be developed with a preconceived notion about what the solution is. If you look at the rest of the physics world, the theories were developed after data came in and partially upset the previous theory, and they were developed in accordance with the new data.
I realize a majority of Muslims are not violent. My problem with the Muslim community as a whole is that while Christians come out and protest when violence is committed in their name (such as with Abortion doctor killings), and make it known that such behavior is NOT acceptable behavior to most of them, the Muslim community very rarely condemns the violent behavior that comes from their ranks. Instead, they almost always deflect away, usually blaming Israel. Hamas and Fatah both atrociously use terrorism, human shields, and other non-acceptable behaviors as they fight, but the behavior also extends to the radical sexism Muslim countries display so frequently: honor killings, locking women and girls into burning buildings because they're not completely covered, caning women for sexual immorality because four male witnesses can't step forward to verify that it was rape...it's just awful.
I'm not saying the majority of Muslims explicitly support these behaviors, but the fact that cartoons about Allah and Mohammed are able to get so many of them protesting and even rioting because they see it as offensive and reflecting badly on Islam, while these disgusting sex crimes, war crimes, and absolutely unjustifiable terrorist behaviors committed by other Muslims in the name of their religion can occur without mention is absurdly hypocritical and shows at least a tacit willingness to look the other way for so many of these behaviors.
