Exactly right.
And while we are at it, lets stop wasting our tax money on the whole judicial system and police!
I mean, how many years have we been trying to stop crime and yet there are STILL people out there committing crimes!
Its obvious that doing the right thing for its own sake is completely pointless....

Every parent spends so much effort to get their kids to clean up their own messes. But for some reason when it comes to corporations we give them a pass because "it would cut into our profits." Just like a kid whining "But mom, I have to study for this test so I just dont have time to clean that up!"

There is a difference between "weather" and "climate."

Yes, weather changes all the time. The climate tells you what the expected variations of weather should be. If you are seeing weather consistently outside of those patterns, then either your understanding of the climate is wrong (i.e. its based on 100 years of weather, but there is a 200 year cycle of weather patterns) or the climate is changing.

..or you could read the summary where it says "This change occurred when the oldest vehicle, SVN 23, was removed from the constellation." and generously assume that SVN 23 was removed because of a hardware failure and the removal of a satellite from the constellation triggered the software defect and thus both interpretations are correct.

But then you would have no excuse to complain, and where is the fun in that?

They clearly should have spent 5 times the money to get further into space even though that would in no way help the validity of their test of recovery systems.

Why? Because that money would have helped shut up people who completely miss the point.
It would have been well worth it.

Not sure I follow.
The comparison is "perceived health effect of marijuana smoke vs perceived health effects of cigarette smoke."
Maybe its only tar as you say, maybe its not. I make no claims either way.
If its just tar than my statement holds up: Despite marijuana having more tar, pot smokers use a smaller volume of product than tobacco smokers so there is less of a marijuana tar problem regardless of the per gram tar ratios.
If its more than just tar than the statement still holds up for those as well.

What Im going with is that the previous commenter was not able to correctly parse the words in the article.
Apparently you have the same inability to read the written word.

Where exactly in my post did I say anything for or against global warming?
However, your inability to understand what people say makes it really hard to take you or your arguments seriously.

Where in the article did it state anything about the timeframe of the "major impact on core business?"
It doesnt. It states a timeframe for making decisions that will prevent the major impact without needing "hard decisions."

Where did you go wrong? I would guess it was in elementary school, but who knows....
