@DigDeep No one but your fellow anti-vaxxer Wilson is going to click on a link called "plandemicseries." Not sure whom you are trying to convince, or why.

@C. King Alpha Flunkie Too much 'mis-information' from cult followers. You make statements - I make statements. You the conversation cop now?

'Anti-vaxxer' name calling is a complete joke. Look in the mirror.

Whose the 'flat earth' guy? You Flunkie - especially if you come back with your name calling and cancel crap.
Did Evan Neumann take his money from his CA home sale with him because that is the only avenue he has to survive in Belarus via the pay up or get out system.

Anybody here ever seen the movie, "Compliance"?


This movie explains how Biden could have been elected POTUS.
Enjoy the movie and be appalled at the sawdust for brains most Americans own.
p.s. - have a barf bag handy.

@Bin there dun that

Easy to explain why Biden was elected.


So many people had such a strong case of TDS that they were willing to elect a senile old fool like Joe Biden as POTUS instead.
@Buyandhold 2012 Don't fret. Just keep dreaming of the day/month/year (depending on Mike Lindell's crystal ball) that Trump returns and you can live in the autocracy you adore.

@tewright2012 @Buyandhold 2012
te, it isn't just Trump.
Politicians/government leaders all over the globe are autocrats:
China, Russia, Iran, GB, you name it.
At least, Trump is a savvy, business-minded patriot.
Perhaps you disagree with me about the "patriot" part, but I really do believe DT wants the best for most Americans.
Biden and the DNC are selfish and don't care about the American people.
Their actions speak more loudly than their words.

The partisan gap in Covid’s death toll has grown faster over the past month than at any previous point. - The gap in Covid’s death toll between red and blue America has grown faster over the past month than at any previous point. - www.nytimes.com/...

n October, 25 out of every 100,000 residents of heavily Trump counties died from Covid, more than three times higher than the rate in heavily Biden counties (7.8 per 100,000).

October was the fifth consecutive month that the percentage gap between the death rates in Trump counties and Biden counties widened.

Covid deaths have been concentrated in counties outside of major metropolitan areas. Many of these are in red states, while others are in red parts of blue or purple states, like Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Virginia and even California.

This situation is a tragedy, in which irrational fears about vaccine side effects have overwhelmed rational fears about a deadly virus. It stems from disinformation — promoted by right-wing media, like Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, the Sinclair Broadcast Group and online sources — that preys on the distrust that results from stagnant living standards.

I guess to make up for their losses, pretty soon The GOP will need to rely on 17 teen year olds to try and vote - ......oh wait, my bad.

China's military has constructed mock-ups of U.S. warships in a remote desert missile testing range as training targets amid the threat of conflict in the South China Sea or the Taiwan Strait.

U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) said satellite images by Maxar Technologies Inc., a U.S. firm with more than 80 satellites in low Earth orbit, show mock-ups of a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier and two Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers at the test facility in the Ruoqiang area of Xinjiang's Taklamakan desert.

"This new range shows that China continues to focus on anti-carrier capabilities, with an emphasis on U.S. Navy warships," USNI said. news.usni.org/...

Rep. Jeff Hoverson, (R-ND) said he’s taking the deworming drug ivermectin as a COVID treatment. “Covid is real and like a really bad flu, “I’m feeling rough, But this ivermectin is keeping me out of the hospital.” He was forced to cancel his anti-vax rally.
danielaqwe profile picture
These republicans make it really easy to identify the morons.
If someone really thinks that Ivermectin has efficacy against Covid (no respectable doctor believes it) ... for god's sake... take it but do not talk about it. Imagine one day the "story" changes (like the earth is no longer flat)... your opponents will use this against you.

XOM partners on carbon capture and storage

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's state energy firm, Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), said on Tuesday it has partnered with a Malaysian unit of Exxon Mobil Corp to jointly explore opportunities in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies in a bid to decarbonise the country's upstream industry.

Exxon Mobil said last month it wants to build CCS hubs in Southeast Asia and has begun talks with countries with potential storage options for carbon dioxide.

According to the memorandum of understanding signed on Nov. 3, both companies will assess the viability of potential CCS projects in selected locations offshore Peninsular Malaysia and identify suitable technology for potential application, Petronas said.

The companies will also share subsurface technical data to enable CO2 storage assessment and characterisation.

Once the reservoir has been penetrated, they have problems keeping the methane gas from escaping. What makes you think that they can keep the CO2 inside the reservoir?
@danielaqwe I did not express an opinion about the viability of such a project. You would have to ask them, or wait for the white paper.

How do we keep CO2 from leaving your body ever time you breathe?
