arrogant TOWARDS THE ARROGANT, that's like bullying the bully, which I'm absolutely a supporter of.
Me too. Why do you think I called them out on it? You know, as arrogant pricks go, I'm pretty damned arrogant myself. I used to labor under the
illusion that I was among the top 10 arrogant pricks, until I started dealing with environmentalists. As it turns out, I pale into insignificance in
comparison. As arrogant as I am, I've never claimed to have the power to destroy planets.
You've got to admit, that's a pretty damned arrogant claim!
Same thing your carbon taxes will do for you when all the trees die out for lack of breathable CO2.
Nope nope nope nope nope. THERE IS NOT A LACK OF CO2 YOU UNEDUCATED FOOL.
Uh, yeah... heh heh... he said "fool"... yuk yuk yuk...
here's an idea - instead of trying to blow smoke up folks' asses by calling names in an attempt thereby to hide the fact that you've got not real
argument to counter what I said, how about trying to debate that issue?
Think ya can handle that, Sparky?
As for carbon taxes, why don't you ACTUALLY RESEARCH THEM...
I have. Have you?
they've been implemented in other countries with some limited success and WITHOUT magically enslaving everyone and taxing "the air they breathe".
I should give a damn about that.... why? Unless I plan on moving to one of those slave-states, that is...
No, seriously now, give me some logical reason I should care how other countries handle their own stuff. If you can do that, I'll admit that US
invasions of other nations and telling them how to run their countries is a GOOD thing. If you can't then having them run MY country is no better than
me running THEIRS.
We're emitting too much CO2,
ONE of us is, I'll give you that much, and go so far as to agree that the CO2 being emitted is hot, too!
it has created a very rapid imbalance which has triggered many effects- one being global warming, which changes CLIMATES (climate change), and so
I hope the hook didn't hurt when you swallowed that bait without doing any research on what you were being sold. There's no doubt the planet is
warming - it has been doing so for 18.000 years or so, since the Ice Age ended. the notion that it is man-made, or that another tax will stop it - or
even slow it down, is laughable.
BTW, as warm as we are now, we are STILL colder than the planet has been for 450 million years, barring short episodes like the Ice Ages.
Are you being sarcastic or are you really that oblivious?? MOST OF THE WORLD'S FRESH WATER IS LOCKED INTO GLACIERS/ICE-CAPS. If they melt into the
ocean... the water becomes SALINE.
And if they DON'T melt, you're not going to drink them anyhow. at least none of my people go around drinking glaciers or polar ice caps.
BTW - if you have your way and the earth enters another Ice Age, won't we have less drinking water when it's all locked up in... glaciers and ice
caps? Sea levels were quite a lot lower during the last Ice Ages - what would make the next one different?
We CANNOT DRINK salt water.
Sure we can. You distill it, drink the water and sell the salt. My people did that for thousands of years before your people ever invaded my
If the rest of the water is POLLUTED, that also makes it far less desirable to drink. The solution is NOT desalination and water filtration as
bandaids, the solution is to STOP UNNECESSARY POLLUTION/GLACIAL MELT.
So stop polluting your water. You need Al Gore to force you to do that? No one is polluting mine, and I've not seen Al in years. I want to watch you
drink a glacier, though. That HAS to have some entertainment value.
Ideology is what shapes our world and our actions, whether its overt or barely noticeable. Ideas can change the world much faster than money can. And
hopefully ideas will render money near the bottom of importance to humans. Hopefully we will someday be rid of the slavery, oppression, and
destruction that has been born of money, property, and governments.
Ideology has been the number one killer of humans for millennia, and it's showing no signs of slowing up. Let me know if you ever start getting fat
off of ideology, in the absence of being able to eat.
Also, you night want to get a new keyboard. It appears that your cap lock is sticking at the damndest times.
