  • U.S. companies to invest $140B in support of U.N. climate change deal [View news story]
    Is that my "premise" you refer to, CS? Do please give me an example of "One Species poison is another species food"? As I mentioned elsewhere, if so much biomass hadn't been buried and converted, then the outcome would have been very different, and whatever evolved would doubtless be breathing an atmosphere which we would find toxic, but such adaptation takes hundreds of millions of years; if you think we can so adapt, at the pace we are changing things today, then you'd have to be out of your mind!

    Again, where do you find these facts you claim, which are so at odds with what I find? Do you make any effort to verify them? Any fool can print plausible seeming nonsense on the web, but then, as you never provide any links, we can't check them out!

    Example: Show me just one verifiable source for this "record amounts of (glacial) ice" you keep on claiming.

    Where did I admit to being a socialist? I wouldn't call it a dirty word, as it's just one of many political choices (but not mine, for reasons I've already explained) for those who can't cope with the big picture.

    You have beat me on every argument? Please show me one.

    If you can't think of how to spend your time outside of work, then you must have a puny imagination (which explains your limited viewpoint). people work to earn more because most non-managerial salaries are so low it's often a struggle to survive on them. You didn't explain why, when the World is richer than ever before, so many people are paid so poorly; you are aware that it needn't be this way... or is that too complicated for you? Being paid a salary that reflects the value contributed, is not stealing; it's the execs with their unjustified bonuses on top of their already ridiculous salaries who are doing that!

    When the human race is collectively using up resources faster than they are being renewed, how can that be other than destructive?

    If you want to win arguments, you must first learn how to stick to the real facts, rather than make up some that suit your ideology, but that's the problem with ideologies; once they take hold, then all facts that don't support them, must be erroneous, right?

    Yes, if 46 minutes is considered a long time, then SA should be a money mine, as I spend much more than that here, as, I suspect, do most members.

    If you pump poisons into a finite atmosphere, it'll turn bad, sooner or later. If at the same time you release the energy deposited over hundreds of millions of years, in little than a century, that is going to raise temperatures, in general. Even a Sunday school teacher should be able to work that out, even if it wasn't considered a likelihood when your book was written! The authors didn't predict computers, either...

    Hang on, peops; is this now official, or still only a rumour, from a guy who does not work for BBRY? Whatever, I wouldn't buy a slider phone as, mechanically, it's a disaster waiting to happen!

    So what's the difference between "decent" and "good"? What is the merit of working for more than we need, when the environment is being wrecked as a result? Actually, most people work more than 25 hours a week, because that's what their bosses specify, because that ensures a lot of unemployment, which in turn means they can pay the real wealth creators peanuts!

    No socialist I (common ownership of all property is a practical non starter, as are many of Marx's ideas) but neither am I the kind of capitalist who cannot be satisfied, if he's not making more than he did last year. Greed is alright up to a point, but becomes destructive when taken too far. Never mind; all your comments seem dependent on a degree of name calling, which is pathetic, as is any political bias, which cannot, by its nature, encompass all of reality, so resorting to labels only undermines your position (except to those who share your leanings...).

    “It demonstrates we do not know how to model the climate system, in my view,” Christy said."

    +

    “But still, the amount of warming is much, much less than what was anticipated from climate models…”

    = The models aren’t any good!

    Yawn! So we burn all this energy to pull people out of poverty? The inequality we see today looks to me a sure sign that the last thing the main polluters are concerned about is the poor! This "moral" imperative clap trap is specious, and most of the burning is driven by just one thing; the greed of people who are already rich, so please spare us this hypocrisy: how moral is it to enrich people today, at the cost of making the planet uninhabitable for our descendents? Most economists agree that the World is rich enough that we could all have a decent standard of living in return for 20 to 25 hours of work, so how come those who can still find work are doing twice that, and mostly in turn for a pittance that barely pays the rent? Oh yea, right, they are constrained to do so, because our great leaders are determined to end poverty...

    I agree with your first two words; it has resembled trying to extract clarity from a tree stump. Debate should not revolve around the repetition of inventions (like "record ice levels") for which you've furnished not a shred of evidence.

  • After Nokia's Q2 Earnings, Improving Revenue And A Flat Share Price Are Possible [View article]
    The remaining shareholders may own a higher percentage, but of a company that now has a lot less cash available; better to have spent it on R&D (or increase the dividend) which would better benefit those shareholders in the long run.

  • Bank Of America Turning The Corner With Pulling Guards [View article]
    Just like politics, Ray; they get to replace the current mob with more of the same! I'm always bemused that compensation consultants are given any credibility; how long would they stay in business if they told the CEO and BOD that they were paying themselves way too much (and the workforce too little)?
