Don't worry alarmists, El Nino's are cyclic. A new shipment of scare is on backorder. Approx ETA ~ 2020.

Here's a graph of temp anomalies vs El Nino events from 1950 - 2012. Notice anything unusual?

Nope. It doesnt even have 100 years of temp data for a planet 4 billion years old. Thats called an insufficient sample size.

Don't worry, deniers. With 2015's El Nino now over, you can look forward to cooler temperatures in 2017, and then when 2018 rolls around, you can declare that 2017's lower average global temperature proves that global warming has ended (again). Patience is key. Good luck!

Keep crying wolf. Its worked out so well for your cause so far.

There is no reasoning with liberals today. They live in fucking la la land where Hillary can do no wrong. Its pathetic. They've been on this course since the founding of where they employ the scientology tactic of "always attack, never defend". Obama has been a God send to the Republican party. He's lost 900 state legislators, Congress, the Senate and now the presidency. Not to mention Republicans now have the majority of the govenorships. Just a few more and they can ammend the constitution without a single Democrat needed.

I'm a Republican and even I don't want them to have that kind of power. It sickens me watching the Democrats implode like this to the detriment of the country. Nancy Pelsoi, Harry Reid and Obama have bee a fucking disaster.

And here its made my life much easier and I've had zero issues with it. I hate Pottering as much as anyone but if something he's done has made my life easier, the way systemd has, then kudo's to him.

Your post however contributes nothing.

Worldwide, millennials are doing great. The World Bank Forecasts Global Poverty to Fall Below 10% for First Time.

The problem for Americans is that we can't exactly ask the Chinese to go back to having 45 million people starve to death in a new "Great Leap Forward", no matter how much taking their labor skills off the capitalist market might improve the labor demand for unskilled white Trump voting high-school dropouts. Globalism is a bitch if you were used to getting a free ride.

Just had to bitch about "white" people didn't you? Your inner douche bag is showing you racist pile of shit.

Funny thing about workers in other countries - they kinda don't want to bust their ass for meager wagers so that Americans can enjoy a standard of living higher than they deserve. The inevitable outcome is an equalization of income, where wages in established nations stagnates while wages in developing countries rises.

Who are you to tell Americans what standard of living they deserve? I work for a living, hard. I have a high standard of living compared to many. Fuck you if you think I don't deserve what I earned with my own blood sweat and tears.

It's a crowded market.

Give me a WebOS phone with a real keyboard, and I'll be happy to wait in line all night for it.

(I don't even care about the lack of third party apps. Well, except for the crap HP pulled when they hobbled the Google Maps app, and replaced it with Bing Maps.)

Sure, but allow me to get off your lawn first
