Seems odd that so many climate deniers were refuting all the supportive science over the years and now all of a sudden have embraced some more recent controversial scientific findings that support there previously unsupported positions. What ever happens to fit our accepted beliefs once again rules the day. I am more than willing to consider all possibilities on most given subjects, our supposed intellect can be a very dangerous thing indeed. JMHO
" the world simply cannot run out of any resource." Are you kidding me? Steve, you may want to attend the free lecture at the Library on Monday, it could help with that myopic vision of the world you entertain.
The author of “Countdown: Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth?” — released in September — and The New York Times best-seller “The World Without Us” takes a hard and sometimes sobering look at our interaction with the Earth and how the world’s rising population is affecting its future.
GOOD ON YA SARAH! Let the Steamboulder bashing begin! Come on boyz!
"it’s just a matter of time until an injustice born of irrational fear is abolished."
Finally something we can all agree on. Party on Wayne!
Wow, the term "monkeys" was taken from Brandon's post so don't flatter yourselves, monkey's have much thicker skin then any of you.
Well said Brandon, but the monkeys need to be fed. Don't expect any reasonable/rational minded comments from this crowd. All very predictable IMHO.
Not to mention having a plan and staying with the plan (as in diving) to look out for your buddie. Staying within reach/earshot of one another isn't always easy (whistles help) but makes a big difference when problems arise. Also knowing where you are going instead of following some one else's tracks may help avoid situations like this. Last season I think there were 6 rescues in one day out of Fish Creek Canyon all because no one knew where they were going and were simply following others tracks. Common sense goes a long way but may be in short supply these days. IMHO!
The suggestion to never go into the backcountry without your cellphone should also be accompanied by pack, water, food, matches, compass...and the ability to spend the night out if need be. The thinking that a cell phone can take the place of being prepared for the worst in the wilderness is ludicrous at best and generally the reason why so many unnecessary rescues are required. So sure, have your cell phone with you along with all you other essential gear and in the event you do get lost or are injured hopefully you will have a cell phone connection, but don't rely on it. And thanks to RCSR for all they do?
"Attorney Steve Zansberg said government officials at the federal level are not subject to state laws about open meetings. Additionally, the governor, as a single government official, is not considered a public body and therefore not subject to the Sunshine Law." Much to do about nothing as usual!
Selective Amnesia and Hypocrisy rule the day. Where was all the self righteous indignation for the unwarranted abuse of power under the previous regime? What is so difficult to understand? "Attorney Steve Zansberg said government officials at the federal level are not subject to state laws about open meetings. Additionally, the governor, as a single government official, is not considered a public body and therefore not subject to the Sunshine Law." As long as our politics continue to be a tit for tat board game nothing of any significance will ever get accomplished and that is a sad outcome for the American people. WAKE UP SHEEPLE!
