Guys, since the "global temp" rise is not cooperating with the models, and extreme weather is not really doing it for us either, we need some other catastrophe to link to energy mostly used in developed countries. How about lead in sea water? It ain't rising any faster, but it's dirty right? And money is available for specifically FOR AGW causes, right? But wait, what is the base level of Pb in the ocean? Who cares, don't put that shit on the graph. Keywords upside down Tijander, 17 bristlecone pines tree ring data with measured temps tacked on after 1960 for effect, hide the decline, Mike's nature trick, please delete IPCC emails, etc, etc. No reason for me to be skeptical, I mean, I know what happened is Auschwitz, Chelmno, Treblinka, Sobibor, Betzec. But i still am not sure if we landed on the moon.

They don't. They take DNA and then see who is predisposed to drink and drive. Get it yet? In the future your DNA will dictate your healthcare and insurance rates.
So, the brakes cannot override the engine power, since when? The ignition key would be rendered inoperable? The emergency brake would not work? The transmission would lock in gear? No effing way.
All the best features: When it THINKS it is out of ink, printer shuts down, cannot even use the scanner! No actual ink measurement capability. Chip on ink cartridge keeps tabs on # pages and cleaning cycles and ESTIMATES when ink should be out, no relation to reality. SUCK IT EPSON.
My freaking fridge beeps if I leave if open.....my car door......
The Oregon state budget is currently north of $30 BILLION PER YEAR. That is $7800 per man, woman, and child. Then Gov. Taxhober (Kitzhaber) came back in a special session for another $250 million, cause $30 bil is just not quite enough. Can't wait for the exemptions to start flowing. One other note, if you are Tier 1 Public Employee Retirement System participant in Oregon(pre 1996) at 30 years you now retire at 110% of current pay. Yes, MORE than you were making working. So you could be 50 years old and we will be paying for your ass for 50 years. PERS is currently $3 billion+ cost for Oregon taxpayers. Nice gig when you can get it!!
The only hope of cheap power is distributed homeowner owned generation. Anything centralized will be sold at market or even higher "green" rates forever, and i do not believe those rates will ever come down. If you had 3x the generation capacity you needed, why would you ever sell the excess for less than what it is worth?
Those high school boys were standing on the exact spot of the first blast, lucky they were early. Yes, I looked at them as well with suspicion. I was wrong. Set up an account, everyone on Reddit can send a buck or two as an apology = profit!
If there were problems in supply, then someone, somewhere, should be without gasoline. Have you EVER heard that lately? I call BS. What other industry can change all their prices at the same time at all competitors?
Please explain how more taxes on anyone would ever make it into your pocket? You want free school loans or something? Maybe examining your previous choices might help. And no, you are not working any harder than I am.
Your kids are required to have certain immunizations to attend school. The ONLY way out is to sign a religious waver. So if your faith is Atheism, that will still work. Please let us know how many atheist nurses have declined immunizations.
With 2,600,000 km3 of ice on Greenland that is 2,600,000,000,000,000 tonnes. There are 1,000,000,000 tonnes per 1 Gigatonne So we have 2,600,000 Gigatonnes of ice in Greenland. With a loss of 200 Gigatonnes/year we are seeing a loss rate of 0.0077% per year So if it remains a linear loss rate, it will all be gone in only 13,000 years. I figure Antarctica will take a little longer. And it does not look like the plots showed acceleration, since the slope was constant?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
... describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
So my internet "papers and things" are not already included in the 4th amendment protections?
Aren't they simply the modern version of my papers?
