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.

Logic makes up for it.

Oh and just so you know I really dont have an inflated view of self worth. I am stuck in a dead end job because I'm horrible at math. I had to take special classes because I was so bad at it. My inabilities put me square at the bottom of the ladder in the grand scheme of things.

Nothing more than another face with a boot stomped into it...

Nah! I'd really like to see the justification behind how you deal with Harry and what he brings to the table.

I mean you Republicans are the standard bearers for having impeccable manners and such.

Oh good example. The cleanliness of the sites you guys protest at. Left immaculate! WOW!

But when it comes to reasoning and rationale.....you guys crap all over everything.

Clean in one way dirty in another.

I think you should explain to this forum why it is you show such disrespect for Harry when he directs nothing toward you...at all!

Acting that way toward Harry reflects poorly on your character.

But thats pretty much par for the course when it comes to how the right deals with people that they find in opposition to the positions they cling to.

Its one of the Bushiites cornerstone policies.

If you aint with us(apparently in totality)then you're against us.

Say it aint so! I never woulda figured!

And Republicans wonder why they get little respect? LOL! You gotta give it to get it.

Here's the thing. And this just proves that people on the right like Tiredofit are card carrying as5holes.

Me and my dealings with people like you I can understand you mouthing me back. I aint exactly nice when I try and make my points.

Harry on the other hand? I can not recall him being gruff or short with you not even once. He has repeatedly tried the civil approach with you in trying to discuss issues with you.

Instead of reciprocating and doing unto others as you would have them do unto you....you cut Harry down for what he believes...you try and drag him through the mud.....you flat out disrespect him.

All the while Harry maintains his decorum.

Thats rather slimy of you Tired.

A NY male dancer named Laurent got a job with the traveling company of a Broadway show. The show visited his hometown. One night, while walking through a his old downtown haunts, Laurent heard moans coming from an alley. He looked in the alley and discovered a man who had been severely beaten by some local toughs. Laurent turned the man over. The man’s eyes were swollen shut. He had been beaten so badly that he had lost one of his work boots.

Laurent, who had been inspired by the story of the Good Samaritan, leaned the man against a wall and said, “I’ll help you get some medical care. I’ll even pay for it.”

The man forced one eye open. He could only open it enough to see Laurent’s patent leather shoes. The man shuddered and ordered, “Leave me alone. I don’t want no help from people like you.”

Laurent obediently walked on. The next morning, some passersby found the man dead. The coroner said he had died only an hour before.

This is hilarious. Tiredofit Harry is trying to have just a simple rational discussion with you on the topic of using coal wisely....LOL!

And you are having none of it. That speaks volumes about you.

This thread isn't about creation.

Back on topic.

Tiredofit,

Would you agree that finding politically acceptable ways to use coal would be beneficial to WV?

Posted 895 days ago.

harryanderson

I have no desire to satisfy your obsession with where I do or do not live, so I'm done with the topic.

Posted 895 days ago.

harryanderson

Why should I tell you where I live?

Posted 895 days ago.

harryanderson

And why focus on where I live? It has nothing to do with the topic under discussion.

Posted 895 days ago.

harryanderson

"Actually you have admitted that you do not live in WV."

I think not. Show me where.

Posted 895 days ago.

harryanderson

"I just don't know why you feel the need to participate in a forum so far from where you are."

How do you know where I live? I've never revealed where I live.

harryanderson

Tiredofit, would you agree that finding politically acceptable ways to use coal would be a good thing for WV?

Posted 895 days ago.

Well, yet another poster is making it clear that I'm not welcome to participate in this forum.

“There is no reason to sequester CO2.”

So I guess that puts you in the third group I mentioned earlier—those who oppose Peng’s call for action because they believe anthropogenic CO2 isn’t causing rapid climate change.

I agree with AaronS that Peng has written “an excellent commentary.” However, like I mentioned before, I fear it can’t be implemented because too many groups on both sides of the debate will oppose it.

And that’s bad news for those of us who love WV and want to see her citizens prosper.

So, Tiredofit, do you feel that Peng, in calling for government funding to develop CCS technology for coal, is part of the “progressive/socialist agenda”?

Reading your post Harry a thought crossed my mind.

Wouldn't it be ironic and sad that at some nearish point in the future this country collapsed? But not because of any one issue that either party is talking about and using to bring votes their way. What if our nation collapsed because everyone was so busy trying to get their way and in the process putting such strain on the system because critical tasks aren't being accomplished,wouldn't it be ironic if in the battle to "save" "their" nation people allowed the whole shebang to falter and go keel up because the forgot to do the regularly scheduled maintenance so to speak?

I just have this creeping feeling that if anything kills this nation it will be ourselves directly attributable to our own stupidity that does the deed.
