E=MC^2 is dead. Long live E=MC^2!
So...then Trump owing millions to foreign banks makes him...what's the word....I cannot quite find the right word....ah, here it is in your note, thank you, the words are "in debt".
You do realize that most of what you posted is a lie, right? Of course you do. Lying is what you do.
You lost your argument right there. If you can't have civilized debate, go back to school and try out for debate club. Maybe then you'll understand that not everyone who conforms to you narrow-minded world views is trying to pull a fast one on you. What do I really even care about what you think anyway? I'm expressing my opinion on how our government spends our money.
But, lets pretend I do care, and I'm trying to convince you. Lets start:
Source: Geologic Temperature Record
The earth has been cooler for the entire period during which anything resembling human beings evolved.
No. Our branch of life flourished since just after the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary (aka K-Pg Boundary). Thats when mammals developed into the variety they are today, and most of which was much more temperate than really recent temperatures (geologically speaking).
Antarctica wasn't in its current position when it was warmer than it is now.
Not as cold as it is now, which is ridiculously cold. From Wikipedia (again):
Africa separated from Antarctica in the Jurassic, around 160 Ma, followed by the Indian subcontinent in the early Cretaceous (about 125 Ma). By the end of the Cretaceous, about 66 Ma, Antarctica (then connected to Australia) still had a subtropical climate and flora, complete with a marsupial fauna. In the Eocene epoch, about 40 Ma Australia-New Guinea separated from Antarctica, so that latitudinal currents could isolate Antarctica from Australia, and the first ice began to appear. During the Eocene–Oligocene extinction event about 34 million years ago, CO2 levels have been found to be about 760 ppm and had been decreasing from earlier levels in the thousands of ppm.
And, without human carbon releases the planet maintains a relatively temperate climate over long periods of time through the action of the carbonate-silicate cycle.
Long being relative.
Of course when you dig up half a billion years worth of stored organic carbon and burn in in a century, the carbonate-silicate cycle ain't gonna fix that.
And of course, continuing to release more CO2, that's your fault, not mine.
How is that more my fault than yours? You live in the same culture as I do. You work on the same computers I do, have the environmental footprint that I do, and so on and so fourth (probably more so, since my work and home are solar powered, and my vehicle is electric). You eat the same food, which comes from the same farms, and drink water piped over the same infrastructure, powered by the same machines, built by the same machines. Don't get all holier than thou on me.
NASA is doing climate research because 4 decades of political leaders decided NASA should be doing climate research.
This is what I disagree with. Not that we are funding climate research, but that NASA should be focused, and we should have a vibrant and progressive space program. NASA is losing ground. We retired the Shuttles, we haven't done anything but LEO manned spaceflight since the 70's, and the number of humans to walk on another celestial body is decreasing, not increasing. All that is thanks to 40 years of mismanagement, lack of direction, and a terrible lack of focus.
If you are deluded enough to think Trump is just going to move things around to NOAA rather than eliminating inconvenient research, you deserve what you get.
I'm not deluded enough to think that, since it says so right there in TFS. I don't think that another 20 years of $2B research is going to solve anything, certainly not going to get us what 20 years of $2B will get us by reaching Mars and beyond. I'd much rather know what the oceans of Europa have hidden under the ice crust than at what speed the various glaciers on earth are melting. They are melting, lets design our world to accommodate more heat, since the 4B year history of the earth suggests that's the norm, and were intelligent enough now to plan for it.
Good luck with that.
To you too, sir. To you too.
The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
