Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

All you have to do is list those countries and we will see how miserable those people are their wallowing in their socialist he11hole.

Once you answer that question then we will compare and contrast on where this nation is becoming like those countries. If anywhere at all.

I have a feeling we are about to see some more ignorance on your part.

Here is where you are in serious error.

But a clarification first.

To what countries with socialist systems are you referring?

That being said I'll say this. Lets say that you are that capitalist at the top and I am a bottom feeder so to speak.

What's in it for me if the continued amassing of your wealth makes my life living he11?

You see the wealthy are small in number so it'd be in their best interest if the majority is allowed a little comfort and happiness at their expense.

Otherwise whats the point in the majority in allowing the system to continue as it is when it crushes so many.

There is a lot of points of consideration I left out. Just arguing the essential points here. Competition would insure wages wouldn't be rock bottom for example. But I think I made my point.

When you cry about wealth redistribution I wonder what I would be paid if a company wasn't forced to pay a minimum wage.

You can say that it would be up to me to better myself and make more money. That would be true. But there is only a finite amount of success available in a given populace. You only have the potential of so many top spots.

In your ideal system there would be two groups of people the successful and those left over with what's left. And in a capitalist system thats allowed to do as it wishes all of the wealth generated will invariable be concentrated toward the top.

I don't know about you but I don't want my worth determined by some person whose only concern is making themselves wealthier.

Again there is nothing wrong with being wealthy but given the human ability to flat out not care about their fellow man do we really want a system that essentially allows a person to set the price of someone else's worth?

The thing about social justice is that it allows people to have worth that in all honesty wouldn't be given to them by capitalists. After all what are capitalists after?

More wealth. Nothing wrong with that at all. But if given the ability to do what they wanted most of them wouldn't do much for those working under them. History shows that pretty well. I mean what gave rise to unions?

It wasn't because they were happy and paid well was it.

Tiredofit when you say things like that it makes me wonder.

In your perfect capitalistic world I wonder...what would my wages be...what hours would I work to earn those wages...would I be buying the goods I need from a company store...how safe would my work environment be?

So many questions.

On the flip side what if those rains became less frequent?

The problem with climate change is that it is going to cause our seasonal weather to go from what is known and expected to what isn't known.

Our seasonal weather around here may vary widely from year to year as climate change progresses.

Now I know you are going to use that blunt instrument you call a brain and say that I am saying that we will see winter weather in the summer etc. But thats not what I am saying.

Plants and animals have a narrow optimal band of what's livable in their respective environments. Going too far outside those boundaries will cause problems.

Tiredofit a person can not use specific words but can imply what those words define by how they word what they say.

As far as the weather goes its kind of hard not to mention weather in regards to how changes in climate is affecting the weather.

So far we have seen small changes to seasonal weather phenomenon. Summers getting hotter or milder weather in the winter. Later on we may see significant changes in what happens with the weather during a given season.

For example. What if the bread belt started getting significantly more rain during the growing season? That'd be a problem.

“I share Harrys view of creation and the bible.”

Since you share my view of the Bible, do you ever think about the Bible's words when you’re writing your hateful posts?

“Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

“But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of*****fire.”

If a supreme being created all of this then I must say that being is one heck of an engineer.

"But I realize that I must reject science as it stands to believe that and I am ok with it."

Why do you have to reject science though?

This is something I never could understand about Christians and science.

If the almighty created all of this then the science of how everything works is his creation also.

Its how he done it. Its how he intended for all of this to work.

Years later I remembered that day and payback was mine.

Pops asked me to get him a cup of coffee...oh I did. Put about 10 shakes of salt from the salt shaker in that cup of coffee and handed it to him with a crap eating grin on my face.

" but you don't know crap from apple butter."

LOL! Funny that you mention that. As a kid I loved apple butter. My aunt made some of the best I ever had. Well one time for some reason my dad I guess got the feeling that I wasn't going to the bathroom enough so he fixed me a "special" apple butter sandwich.

He had crushed up one of my mothers laxative pills in it....and well the rest of the story is kinda...crappy.

So crap and apple butter and me have a strange association if you will.

Whats the point of Harry criticizing me?

If so why is that?
