Never said it did. Read my post this time

At what point in MY post did I espouse "communism" DD? YOU brought it up.

Are you really suggesting that the trait of consciousness did not evolve?

The capacity did, but most of what makes us human is learned. True of other primates like chimps as well.

Re: Dangerous Gas & Electric Co.

There are two types of equality, one good and the other bad.

It is a shame that the world is not as simple as you want it to be.

Re: Wind turbines & real estate

For the US I understand there is an organization that has mapped the consistent winds for locations, but you could be in a valley that gets little or none of the prevailing.

YMMV, you actually would probably have to measure to be sure. If [more]

Re: Off the chart warmth!

Your ability to deny reality seems to grow with each post.

This is from July 2013. The buoy is up there and it is indeed embedded in Ice and it does indeed measure the temperature of the air at the surface and the water beneath the ice. [more]

Re: a more empirical thread

here is the demarcation evident in living species today? Which ones do you consider non-conscious

I bring this up because it seems likely that at least one species had to deal with the zombie scenario I brought up earlier

Not likely at all except in the context you are imagining for consciousness, and I don't hold the view that [more]

Re: Off the chart warmth!

There are no thermometers North of the 81 parallel, so how do you know that "large areas of the Arctic... have... temperatures of more than 8C above average"?

Re: Jan Warmth in Arctic Brings Record-Low Ice

DMI says basically that they suspect that rapid changes in ice cover cause the result but they aren't doing anything but taking down the old plot (cue hysterical claims from the denialsphere) and that the new plot is the one to use.

Re: TPP: Nuttin' to see here, no loitering!

Someone here has dug up the exit clause. I'd wager that not one in 50 people know that (which is part of what gets us out on the streets).

Not liking the view is perfectly reasonable if there are alternatives.

I dare say that the alternatives are going to be more unpleasant though, and that the houses that are being served electricity without either CO2 or Smog are going to be [more]

Re: Jan Warmth in Arctic Brings Record-Low Ice

Ayup - and the January data is tracking below the 2011-2012 season, so it becomes possible that the 2016 Arctic Extent will also set a record.

At some point this has to dismay people who keep claiming that this is a plot by the scientists. [more]
