Re: Business poll

Not surprising. Many CEOs and boards of directors don't look much past their company's next quarterly earnings report. Don't ask them to be worried about potential impact to the business long after they are retired.

Re: EU Renewables Often Improperly Sited

Actions speak louder than words.

Warmists might say all the right words, but very few of them even do a small percent of the right actions.

Re: It's hard to be a lurker when

The US government (if I remember correctly) first started to raise debt to fund the civil war.

Not exactly correct, but pretty close.

The US government had incurred debt prior to the Civil War, however, all of those debts had [more]

Re: It's hard to be a lurker when

End of rant...except for the opinion that if a bank is "too big to fail", it is too big to exist: bring in the trust busters and do away with them

Amen to that!

When Starship Troopers first came out - I hated it - despised it. As time has gone by I see it for more of what it was meant to be, a cautionary tale about the military industrial complex, and the use of cinema in propaganda.

Re: 2014 Warmest Year on Record

If CO2 is causing warming then why does it fail to do so in the short term? Does it go on vacation? Or are the properties of CO2 changing in the short term? No answer.

Re: 2014 Warmest Year on Record

What I don't understand is this: 10 of the warmest years have occurred since 1997 so why are we saying there is a pause? If there is a pause, is it really just a slight increase in warming? Without this solar activity we might have seen even a [more]

Re: 2014 Warmest Year on Record

The potential cost to us is "loss of human civilization/knowledge/memory" and for our species that is an effectively infinite cost. Even 6C over the next 100 years would do that to us with near 100% certainty. Which is far more likely in [more]

Virtually all groups that have performed a risk assessment favor strong action on mitigation. In other words, those that do the assessments come to recognize that there are substantial risks to AGW.

Looks like a British TV SF series. I'm on episode one. Not much to report yet as the episode is almost all set-up. I'll report again when I can see how some of this pays off.
