Routt County couple arrested on first-degree murder charges March 5, 2015
So what happened to Scott W. Comment that was here earlier
A poll sponsored by the NYT - that non partisan (guffaw, guffaw) tabloid shows "most Americans support government action on climate change." Now that's a shocking revelation. No climate change agenda at the NYT. It would be fun to see the questions that made up the survey.
Let's try my survey.
Are you against the average daily temperature in the USA being 90 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
Yes, you say. Then you are against global warming and in favor of fighting climate change
In a post you seem to be implying ( don't want to put words in your mouth) that climate change may be responsible for superstorm Sandy (not a hurricane) and "other large storms along the eastern seaboard". Is it the possible that climate change is to blame for the drop in the number of F3, F4, F5 tornadoes in US, the drop in the number of hurricanes making landfall in US. Now is this "man made" climate change or just the wacky results of Mother Nature. Is it possible that California climate is prone to drought and it is a waste of water resources to irrigate for agriculture and golf courses in the historically desert areas ofCalifornia.
Is this is what you are referring to?
"Despite terrorism-related threats and various other complicated international and domestic issues facing our country, Hillary Clinton claims that global climate change is the greatest challenge to the U.S.
Speaking at the National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas on Thursday, Clinton referenced extreme weather conditions in declaring that “climate change is the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face.”"
" Moreover, voracious consumption of fossil fuels has released unprecedented levels of carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants into our environment, altering essential life-supporting natural systems in ways we are only beginning to understand."
Quite a broad based and general statement. Can you give specific examples as to how "essential life-supporting natural systems are being altered by carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants (what ever they may be)
Given her apparent beliefs about the evil carbon based/fossil fuels I would assume she has already purchased one.
It may not always be possible for "the rest of the population can convert deposits to cash"
Piraeus Bank ATMs in downtown Athens appear to have run out of money Feb. 27, according to Stratfor sources in Athens. Customers have formed long lines to withdraw cash from the ATMs with no apparent success. Piraeus Bank employees have told customers that there is no cash at the moment and that the situation Athens is off 4%, Piraeus is off 8% but off lows
One can argue that the worst time to buy a home is when interest rates are low. If interest rates ever start to rise, how will that impact the price of real estate. If a person is buying a home to live in for an extended period of time all might work out. If not, good luck cuz you may be selling your home for less then you paid for it due to higher cost of financing.
And what about that "the rest of population can convert deposits to cash". Maybe, maybe not.
History does have a way of repeating and no this time is not different.
Only true gentlemen (gentlewomen for the PC crowd) would take the time to reflect on their words and apologize. We can all learn from John and Rhys. Props to you both.
Scott says "the rest of the population can convert deposits to cash". If only that were true. There is this silly thing called fractional reserve banking. I say get there early and get in line. The central bankers of the world are hoping for inflation - any inflation to bail out their disastrous policies. Good luck with that. Mr. gloom and doom says it's a race to the bottom.
keep one hand on your wallet and one hand on your checkbook. Uncle Sam wants you!!! to bail him out.
To Eric's point, yesterday it was reported that Germany sold Euro 3.281 billion of 5 year bond at yield of -0.08. For the courtesy of giving Germany your money you will get back less in 2020 if held to maturity then what you gave them yesterday. Switzerland has had a negative yield and Nestle has sold corporate bonds with a negative yield.
