i see you're a conspiracy theorist as well. What are your scientific credentials? Are they bigger and better than the climate scientists? I prefer to follow the real scientists until other credible scientists prove otherwise

It is because we burned all that that we sit here with 2016 technology not dying of different diseases and injuries and infections and feeding many multiples of people per acre than they did.

and once the temps get too high, it gets difficult to grow things, check out the sahara and other deserts

I have no desire to slow this progress. We would literally, and I mean literally, be better off in the year 2100 or 2300 with risen seas and 2100 or 2300 tech than lower seas and 2050 or 2200 tech.

Ask those who live in countries where the temp is over 50%c if its better

"Those people represent a small fraction of the global population." - but if you asked every parent if they'd want a safer world for their kids and grandkids etc, they would all say "yes" - its just that some of them haven't seen the light about the dangers of global warming yet. so the fraction of the population is potentially greater than you think

"Bill Nye is another loud mouth douche who thinks because he speaks people care. Some do, but most people with common sense stopped listening to him shortly after they grew the fuck up." - he has more credability than any twat who thinks the gays are someway responsible or a climate change denier with no evidence "

""Time and skills." - if you lack those then you have to suck it up and use either a distro with or without systemd

"And while I may not have the skills of the systemd devs, " if thats the case, you don;t really have the knowledge to rant and rave about something you know nothing about because all you are doing is parroting other ignorant posters.

"There are plenty of real issues with systemd.From bugs to features, design stupidities to its dependencies, not forgetiing the devs relations to the community. " now you are making things up, ALL software has bugs and for the rest of your comment about design and dependeicies, thats crap and its just a minority of whiney loud mouths complaining. Remember that empty vessels make the most noise

"Tell me what are the alternatives if I want a good up to date debian based distro without systemd?" - devuan, slackware, gentoo. but i guess you are admitting that a systemd distro is "up to date".

"A problem is that to use some of those alternatives, you have to jump through so many hoops that it isn't worth it at all. You choose the less bad of the two solutions." thats your choice, you have to wonder why the non-systemd distros cause you to jump through hoops .
