"leave this place as somewhere to discuss the technology on it's own merits."
How do you discuss the technology on its own merits when those claiming superiority of a given technology rely on a bunch of soft metrics and "social costs" which are highly debatable? My electricity bill in CA is 3X the national average because of energy policies PUT IN PLACE BY POLITICIANS. California wants to fight climate change. How does that make any sense when China can freely bring on dozens of new coal plants every month? Some of us are trying to figure out how to put our kids through college while policies PUT IN PLACE BY POLITICIANS are costing us thousands of dollars a year in higher energy costs.
Right on bro. I'm gone too.

I'm moving on. Slashdot sucks. Go peddle your propaganda to the remaining uneducated fools that choose to stay here.

...now TSA can get even higher resolution images of our junk.
Wow. 0.1C of warming in 30 years. That's statistically indistinguishable from 0. Even the IPCC would admit that; that's why they're in a panic trying to explain "the pause."
Where does the score for a post come from? Can anyone score another post?
.00000001 oz. lighter than without global warming. We're doomed!
Yes, it's a poke at the "settled science" claims of the global climate change alarmists.
the science was settled...
Apparently the economics of ___________ just don't make sense yet.
Yep. Just imagine how many Directors of Diversity and Inclusion you can hire with $10.6 million.
to attract specific companies like Tesla provide benefits to the economy on a ratio of something like 80:1, but if a political party (let's say the GOP) proposed general tax cuts that apply to everyone, it would be mocked and pilloried by the commie libs who post here. Why?
