Do you think maybe the owners have been using the company to produce a loss on purpose for taxes? Maybe your little plan messed everything up for the owners
http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/genetics_modification/percyschmeiser.html For seven years, Percy Schmeiser has argued that seeds from Monsanto's patented genetically-modified canola landed on his 1,400 acre farm near Bruno, east of Saskatoon, by accident. Monsanto has altered the plant's genes to make the canola resistant to Roundup, a Monsanto weed killer. Monsanto patented the gene and the process of inserting it into the seed.
To also be fair.... former FCC chairman Michael Powell (now president of the U.S. cable industry's trade association) confirmed as well his large payout was exactly where they said it would be when he walked into the president of the U.S. cable industry's trade association job.
Worst secret ever, I've seen this 'saucer' before, it's been in books and magazines since the 60s I even saw the video of them trying to hover it, which didn't work very well. This thing never worked properly and never made it past the initial design phase. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro_Canada_VZ-9_Avrocar http://books.google.ca/books?id=Apaa01aJLIcC&pg=PA26&lpg=PA26&dq=Avrocar&source=bl&ots=Qe24u-CGlp&sig=R44-T1xDEeQGMbUkX8YcVU33Q7A&hl=en&sa=X&ei=nwtzULChIIfFyAG76ICwDA&ved=0CFUQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=Avrocar&f=false
Nuclear at least creates the baseline power cheaply.... and if American law wasn't stuck in the 60s you wouldn't have so much nuclear fuel sitting around that you could reuse over and over again rather than calling it waste. Power is balanced every day, every hour, every minute it's being used. Baseline power fills in the majority of the need, and the brief peaks and fluctuations in the power need to be filled in with power that can be ramped up quickly like gas, or coal fired plants. That's why power companies are switching to smart meters, to help update the system so it can be managed better. The issue with wind is for all the windmills deliver only peak power, not baseline power. So there needs to be a power plant (Coal or Gas) that can be fired up at a moments notice to fill in when the wind dies and demand is still present. So the windmills look nice but they have a dirty smokestack hiding behind them.
If it's illegal to sports gamble in Maryland, arrest people sports gambling in Maryland, but these 2 bit wahoo prosecutors that think they can impose Maryland state law on Canada can go F&*%$ themselves. It's not an illegal business here, it's a legal one. Websites can't be expected to know all the laws everywhere or block everyone from every hick burg that has different laws from accessing their site. The internet is free, lets keep it that way
I am a Canadian, and as an outsider to your country, and being so small a country ourselves, we watch mostly American TV, and see a lot of American news. But really since 9/11 in George W's presidency to even now with Obama in power the USA has gone from a beacon of freedom in the world to sliding closer and closer to a fascist state. I'm surprised more people aren't out protesting with Occupy Wall street, or just protesting things like the TSA searching trucks in TN, trains and ferry passengers, and now with the help of Homeland security these Texas cops are violating your freedoms with drones in the air?! There should be riots in the streets over this B.S. but instead the people say Meh! and carry on. Well I can almost hear the jackboots and sirens approaching from here. Here's a quote to give some thought to. "Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind...And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar" - William Shakespeare
It's not concensus that gave us germ theory it is the amazing work of Louis Pasteur - instituting changes in hospital/medical practices to minimize the spread of disease by microbes or germs, - discovering that weak forms of disease could be used as an immunization against stronger forms and that rabies was transmitted by viruses too small to be seen under the microscopes of the time, - introducing the medical world to the concept of viruses. These were proven to anyone in the scientific community who wanted to attempt the experiments that germ theory was right. Other scientists and doctors did those experiments and came up with the same results. You assume that because we all believe it, there must be concensus. The real question is why do we all believe it? It's because we can prove it.
Well since you mentioned it. My favorite scientist Dr. Kary Mullis, Biochemist, 1993 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, and a few thousand of his peers have a bit of trouble with the HIV causes AIDS, you see he was asked to work on that project since he is a Nobel prize winner, and the reasons we now are able to do DNA testing. Well his issue is that nobody actually did any sort of study or paper or experiment, ever, anywhere, that can be shown that HIV developed into AIDS. "Up to today there is actually no single scientifically really convincing evidence for the existence of HIV. Not even once such a retrovirus has been isolated and purified by the methods of classical virology." read more at http://www.virusmyth.com/ Another case were consensus is the enemy of science, people are dying of AIDS and potentially billions of dollars are being wasted on research that will never find the cure.
Concensus has always been the enemy of science, there was concensus that the earth was the center of the universe, there was concensus that the earth was flat, there was even concensus that people should be bled with leaches to balance their fluids and make them well again, and there was concensus in the 1970s that after 40 years of cooling that Global Cooling caused by man made emissions from cars and smoke stacks was going to lead to the next ice age. Then concensus gave us Global Warming in the mid 80s, and now that it's not really warming anymore now the concensus is global instability. Science on the other hand is about doing an experiment and getting the same result, imagine if you would that nobody liked Newton, he was a jerk, didn't bathe, and was ugly. A horrible dinner companion, but regardless of his lack of popularity we have Newton's laws, anyone, everyone, anywhere can do Newton's experiments and get Newton's results. That is science, not computer models that can't predict the weather next Monday, can't take into account the sun spot cycle, can't take in all the variables of everything that affects the climate. Computer models are not experiments, they are fantasy and who's to blame people out there for being dubious of the outcome when the people spewing that nonsense have so much to gain financially (CO2 Cap and Trade), and the majority of the greenhouse gasses are water vapour, CO2 is plant food, it makes things grow, it doesn't kill the planet!
Seems to convenient that LulzSec is attacking so many big name and government websites all of a sudden, Seems more likely that it's a little covert government intervention to make sure some new laws against hacking get passed by Europe, Canada, Japan and the USA. I don't put it past them. I have foil at home, but really, I didn't make a hat out of it....
I feel dumber having read that article. Thank goodness it's 2.3 kilometers thick, so at a 1.8 millimeters per year over the past century that sucker will be melted in ONE MILLION, two hundred and seventy seven thousand, seven hundred and seventy seven years! And that's IF the melting continues at all, and even more unlikely keeps melting for the next 1,277,777.77 years. "But that is unlikely to happen for several centuries at least." That's the understatement of the millennium
And the issue with your arguments are that the largest volume and by far the most common greenhouse gas is WATER VAPOUR not methane, not CO2 and not Aerosols. Second grass put in a compost pile, and gas put through a cow emit EXACTLY the same amount of Methane. So the argument that agricultural animals cause global warming is easily disproved.
"Earth gets warmer, ice caps melt, coastal areas flood." I think what you meant to say was Sunspots cycle of the sun causes earth to heat up slightly, chicken little psudo-scientists get huge grants telling the people paying them what they want to hear. Politicians use studies to push their economic agenda Anyway the cycle goes; Earth gets warmer, some ice melts, more clouds form from evaporation, earth cools. Ice starts forming again. We never end up with Waterworld, or the day after tomorrow. That's Hollywood not reality
True, but the science done in the 1970s, after a 40 year trend of cooling, all showed that the world was cooling, and that carbon emissions from cars and smoke stacks was causing the cooling. They predicted an ice age approaching if the world cooled 4 degrees globally. Now the science is, after a 35 year trend of warming, all showing warming and that carbon emissions from cars and smoke stacks is causing the warming, they are predicting horrible storms and some sort of glacial ice melted waterworld. Sounds like somebody has not enough variables in their climate model, and doesn't really know how things work after all.
