It's when you throw out so many things there's no way anyone can debunk them all. Like the moon hoaxers: you debunk one thing, they say, "Yeah, but what about <another of their thousands of points>?"

OK, thanks, Shane.

My professor talked about ClimateGate today.
He said to research to see that man made global warming is a hoax.
He also made a claim about how nearly all of the stuff is done through some European (English?) Institution where if you say that man is causing GW you are counted, if you disagree you aren't.

I'm placing my money on it being a hoax.  They've cried wolf dozens of times already, why should we believe this one?
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

Maybe. :P




Well, about 5 days ago, I posted this comment:

Me: "Potholer, I must admit, I do feel responsible for HTWW's video about this one. I put the url to this video in a comment on one of his videos, and well.... yeah.
I don't know if he actually found out about this video from me. You seem a very reasonable and qualified guy. I just wanted for people to know what you thought about it."

And guess who of all people replied back?
Thaaaaattt's right!

HowTheWorldWorks:  "@Surhotchaperchlorome

Actually, that's exactly how I found it."

Now why do I feel guilty about HTWW's video going off on Potholer? :(

Man...Stossel's premier episode on Fox Business is probably the first genuinely rational look at Global Warming I've seen in the news media to date.

Which one was that?  Just the one where he asked "is the debate really over?"

I still find it hilarious how politicians will bleat about capping carbons and all that nonsense but still won't you make more nuclear power stations.  Hypocrites...

Yeah, that's it, a part of it, anyway. His show's an hour long, and the whole thing was on Global Warming.

So, how safe are Nucular Plants? How often do you have to water them? Do they need special soil? What about nutruents?

I wouldn't know. This Texas soil's no good for growing nuclear plants. I stick to sewage treatment plants. Just let the dogs out regularly enough, and they take care of themselves. =P
