I'm sorry Mark, other than "How can the earth's temperature oscillations in the past be explained", I saw no other questions. I also addressed said question by (get this) agreeing with you. If there was another question please highlight it, put in quotations, bold or something...it's hard to discern your questions from your own rhetoric, especially when it takes you five paragraphs to say something. If you're going to ask me some "loaded" question you know to be unanswerable, then that is hardly "reasoning" as you so RIGHTEOUSLY claim.
So it seems you deny humans have ANY impact on at all on our earth's ecosystems? Sounds pretty naive to me but then maybe you could clarify, or maybe you have a vested interest in the O&G industry. My uncle sold his soul to the same "devil" all for a nice pension and house on the golf course. Having a real conversation with him about this topic is about as productive as beating my head against the wall. On that note I need some ibuprofen.
Well actually Mark, with this issue all I see is questions and very few answers. Do I have the answers? Do you? Well I know I don't. My personality may be dry sometimes but I'm certainly not angry. Frustrated? Maybe sometimes... Although I don't feel as if I need to explain historical climate oscillation as the info is very accessible and I think we both agree it has fluctuated without man's interference. However man IS effecting many of earths ecosystems now, including it's climate and the rate in which it's changing is alarming to some. The million dollar question is can we continue to be sustainable exploiting our O&G reserves while polluting our water sources instead of pursuing more long term "green" energy? Can we feed another 4 billion people? Are we nearing a tipping point? I'd like to know if answering these questions are even possible. I feel many just latch on to a popular opinion because it suits their political or religious view but not from doing any basic research at all and are therefore obstinate. I'm the type of person that tries to understand problems on both sides before jumping to conclusions, I'll admit though both sides have some whackos. Since I have no religious or political affiliation my views are mine and mine alone. I apologize if I labeled anyone in my rant above, sometimes I get a little carried away. Mark can label me a "religious environmentalist" all he wants, I don't mind.
I also don't feel like I have any superiority here, my lofty rhetoric may be lacking in substance at times but I will try harder next time.
Yes I know Dan K, Al Gore be the devil. And...thanks Tom, I was actually just laughing out loud at what I wrote this morning. Maybe too much coffee? At any rate I'm quite familiar with satire, that's why I love this forum 😉
Scott, the Obstinate ones have only innuendo and scripted BS talking points created by the same geniuses that tried to convince us all smoking was not bad for us. Oh yeah and God farted but hasn't opened the window yet...good one Mark. Their disdain for Al Gore blinds them from taking a stance that is even remotely close to his and consequently remotely close to reality. Tom is willing to gouge his eyes out to show us all he's the biggest baby of them all. Pretty childish for a bunch of retirees! Your efforts are admirable Scott but fall mostly on deaf ears, I personally like how you use articles with REAL data to counter the typical opinion pieces featured in knuckle dragger weekly. Flame on Trolls.
Many forums that I frequent have a threshold for comments that get flagged for removal. Usually 3-5 flags and it disappears, so it takes a few people not just one "resident cry baby" as the paranoid seem to be suggesting. If the editors have it set up for one person to censor us all then shame on them. I personally have yet to see anything worthy of removal in this forum from my POV but then again my hide is pretty thick.
Ken, I believe the voter turnout was around 35-40% for the last election. Hardly a accurate gauge to get a feel for how popular conservative views are. Apathy is yet another example of the demise of this great nation.
What's that? I can't hear you all the way down here.
They told me it was a Smart phone, I was duped. My faith in our public school system isn't as high as you assume but by all means keep amusing yourself. My scabs do itch a bit though when people talk out of both sides of their respective mouths. By the way hows the view in from your tower.
I've heard plenty of your guilt trips before Mark, something about worshiping the earth instead of a "god". It's the same rhetoric just in a different poop bag. Don't trust our education system but by all mean lets stand in line at the church for your daily dose of conscious cleaning. Is that not another form of control that predates the Prussian system? You're guilty of hypocrisy just like the rest of the sheep SO GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE.
Since when are we "Dog Town USA"? Did I miss something? How many titles can one town latch onto in pursuit of a unique identifier when really all you have to do is look around and realize how unique this place is. And for the record I appreciate the leash laws as is, your doggie will get over it.
