These turkeys have persistently missed predictions over the last 20 years.

No, not just the Cargo Cult speech, which actually fits many CAGW claimants to a T, but this speech: http://management.curiouscatblog.net/2012/05/17/richard-feynman-explains-the-pdsa-cycle/

Richard Feynman: “If it disagrees with experiment it is wrong, in that simple statement is the key to science, it doesn’t make any difference how beautiful your guess is, it doesn’t make a difference how smart you are (who made the guess), or what his name is, if it disagrees with experiment it is wrong.”

If something is testable and flunks, it is wrong. If something is not testable, it's pseudoscience. Take your pick, my view is that these CAGW turkeys take double helpings with both.

Dude what you don't get is that insurance companies like to overcharge on premiums and to not pay claims. Perhaps in an ideal world what you say is true, but this isn't your ideal world/model. More regulations create lots of opportunities. Climate change predicted fatter tail means excuses for higher premiums. Climate change = force majeure on old policies, like not pay as much, or cancellation?

Excessive hurricane insurance claims where I grew up had more to do with poor building codes, muckheads developing houses out to the tide lines, and inflation tripling the replacement costs.

The CAGW graphs from models have repeatedly failed to predict current temperature trends, and others, like global methane in the atomosphere. Data has been repeatedly unused, misused and misreported in CAGW pal reviewed "literature". CAGW is a scam and pseudoscience. Go listen to Feynman about missed predictions. Get over it.

Comment opportunist & state sponsored financial terror (Score 1) 655

Motivated reasoning and gubermint sponsored "scientists" that insist flawed code = physical experiments and up = down. McIntyre has repeatedly shown how venal and biased this group is. Piltdown Man has 21st century decendents who are alive and aggressively fraudulent, looking to replicate Nazi equivalent ideologies. That CAGW financial and power scam, the Clinton-Gore $100 billion per year grab exceeds the peak Exxon-Shell oil profits at the mere cost of bending a group of opportunistic modelers and desperate academic failures. CAGW has become simply "seize the means" and oppress the population Statism for the 21st century.

Comment adapting (Score 1) 547

DVDs' primary advantages are from how obnoxious advertising becomes online for online movies and how content control interferes with maintaining and replaying copies around a house. DVD prices need to be lower to move faster in volume, closer to current rental prices where people buy armloads at a time. Home archives without DVD may become a problem because of "IP" controls.
