Question: On what basis could it be called a "good thing" to keep increasing the total amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?
I'll take a stab at this. I believe climate change is happening, is man-made, and will cause widespread problems over the next century. I believe we should stop pumping CO2 into the atmosphere.
However, in terms of earth's entire history, we're in a very low-CO2 period. (See the graph here http://www.geocraft.com/WVFoss...)
If I were to play devil's advocate, I'd express concern that Earth has been slowly sequestering its CO2 stores, and may not stop until it's all gone. The graph certainly seems to imply that, and intuitively it makes sense. It is more likely for organic matter to be permanently buried than for buried matter to be returned to the atmosphere. Meteor strikes and volcanic action are the only ones I can think of.
Potential benefits of higher CO2 and temperatures (benefits for non-human ecosystems, that is) are faster plant growth and further distribution of rainwater as there are more hurricanes and storm-intensity rises in general.
You're right. I'm wrong. So I'll go ahead and move the goalposts
All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.
I did a quick 5-minute search and couldn't find out if NARA is considered "guidelines" or "law", or what penalties violations carry. I'm more inclined to consider violations an oversight rather than intentional obfuscation, considering what was found in the released emails. The alternative is that the Clintons used their server for evil for years, then became squeaky clean after an arbitrary date for which we have leaked data.
Your laundry list of other laws isn't very compelling without evidence. Those are the laws she's accused of breaking, by people who haven't been able to gather enough evidence to make a case.
To convince me that Hillary is guilty of anything more than "being bad at email", you're going to have to produce a lot more. As I said, she may have technically performed "illegal acts", but I've yet to see a piece of evidence suggesting she's anything more than an aging bureaucrat who made some technical mistakes. Nothing that rises to the level of bribery or corruption being accused.

Snowflakes who cannot accept the historic loss of thier presidental candidate have created a "post-truth" reality for themselves
That's...not actually what post-truth means, unless you're suggesting these "snowflakes" actually believe that Trump hasn't been elected president and won't reside in the White House for the next four years.
Expressing displeasure at a truthful reality is the exact opposite of "post-truth".
I agree 100% with Karl Cocknozzle. Thank you, Karl Cocknozzle, for being the voice of reason in this thread.
The year 2016 has found me saying a lot of things I never thought I'd say.
What part of Iraq still has US troops in it? Which Iraqi territories are being claimed by the United States?
You may have the wrong idea about Assange. He's either in the Kremlin's pocket or has his own (non-truth-related) agenda. https://twitter.com/wikileaks/...
#PanamaPapers Putin attack was produced by OCCRP which targets Russia & former USSR and was funded by USAID & Soros.
Without any evidence, the only group he defends during the Panama Papers scandal was Russia.
Russia needs to have sanctions against it. They have literally been invading their neighbors and taking their land. Should there not be consequences for that?
Because a federal judge hasn't found grounds for your allegation to move to trial?
He's only a rapist if you redefine rape
Sure, but he's an alleged rapist by any meaning of the term.
Thirded. I've owned three inkjets over the years and they were a constant source of frustration. I bought a color laser printer and it Just Works every time. If you can afford the initial cost, you'll save money in just a few years. More importantly, printing is no longer a thing I dread.
HP's been a zombie company running on inertia for a long time now. There's no quality behind their products, they're just a brand stamped on crap.
I haven't considered buying HP in over a decade.

I'll bow to the collective knowledge of people actually suffering from motion sickness. Maybe there's some other technologies that could be added to autonomous cars to fix it, but simply putting up dark curtains sounds like it won't be enough.
Motion sickness can be caused by the dissonance between the what you see (fast movement) and what you feel (no rushing wind, your legs aren't doing any work, etc).
Autonomous vehicles could eventually allow us to darken the windows, which could prevent motion sickness.
