But CO2 is what plants crave!
If it means they don't have to stop driving around in their SUVs and not change their way of life, people are quite ready to believe anything you throw at them.
Yeah, why work for oil corporations and say everything's great when you can get a fraction of the money predicting doom.
The main focus is still the money, not the role play. It's not two people who get a kick out of the situation of pretending to pay for sex, if anything, it's one person getting a kick out of it and one person doing it mainly 'cause they get paid for it.
No question. But, mandates are mandates.

I can't really explain it, but it's at least interesting to ponder. Take a look at Climate change opinion by country.
Awareness that there is something like this is pretty much as one would expect: People in countries with a free or mostly free press and open and affordable access to the internet are way more informed about it than people in countries where information is scarce, hard to come by or government controlled. Also, the more spare time people have to waste, the more informed they claim to be.
The map on whether it's caused by humans is interesting. Why is practically all of South America convinced that humans are the source of global warming? There is also an interesting difference between Western/Middle Europe and Eastern Europe/Russia, with the former being more convinced of human caused global warming than the latter. It's not quite the divide the Iron Curtain formed, rather it seems to be more a matter between former USSR countries being less convinced than the Rest of Europe, with some noteworthy exceptions in the BeNeLux states and England. And Japan being a real puzzle, being absolutely convinced of human-caused global warming and it being a threat.
Really interesting is now, though, when you compare that map (human caused yes/no) with the last map that deals with the question whether people think that global warming is a threat. It looks like whether people consider climate change a threat is more dependent on the country having a free press than whether they think it's human made. It's also interesting that in Western Europe more people think it's a threat than people think it's caused by humans.
All in all, pretty interesting.
Using what inflation index? Remember, NASA's costs are adjusted by the NNSI.
I once worked at Rockwell-Collins, which had been a supplier for the Space Shuttle programme. When I arrived, they were very stringent about how we handled our time reporting and billing. Why? Because apparently before I got there they had just gotten heavy slapped down for exploiting cost-plus Shuttle contracts. Whenever any project went over budget, they just had employees credit their time to the Shuttle programme.
I don't give a fuck about being a good person, what I want is to survive and preferably without unwashed masses storming the hill I live on to escape the rising sea levels.
And before you go and say Blue Origin and SpaceX are doing it so much cheaper, yes, but that is because they are standing on a mountain of research & technology courtesy NASA.
Something both of them readily admit. SpaceX in particular has continually expressed their gratitude for all of the support they've gotten from NASA over the years. And they have an interesting cooperative model in place now for Red Dragon - no money exchanged, but they get access to NASA facilities and time working with NASA researchers, and in turn NASA gets all of the data they acquire from their missions.
Question is, though, what if the police comes and finds out that the houses actually ARE on fire. Will you at least then agree to call the fire department? Or are you too upset that you were wrong that you'd rather see your house burn down than admit you were wrong?
Ok, then it's just getting warmer and warmer in your house, do you try to find out whether there's a fire burning in your basement or are you just happy that you can save on the heating bill?
Yes. It is. And a few million years ago it was WAY warmer than it is today.
A few million years ago, though, humans didn't want to survive on this marble.
