kurt49431, GREAT POST! There are currently over 1 MILLION miles of pipelines across the United States. My guess is that the executives running ANY of them can tell you EXACTLY how many permanent jobs would be created by the proposed XL Pipeline. And I'm sure that number would FAR exceed the government's estimates. This is certainly no new technology we're discussing, regardless of what the lamebrains in this thread pretend to know.
Can you cite me any time in the history of our planet when there was NOT extreme CLIMATE CHANGE? Also, it seems to me that the term CLIMATE CHANGE only came about when it was proven that there has not been any GLOBAL WARMING in the last 17 years. To quote Dana Carvey, "How Convenient!"
Just heard on the news that the ALL TIME previous low high temperature in Pittsburgh for November 18 of 28 degrees was in 1959. Sorry.
I live in Pittsburgh, PA. At 6:00 this morning I went to the gym and the temperature was 14 degrees. They are predicting a high today of 20 degrees. The average high this time of year is in the 50's. The ALL TIME low is 18 degrees and the ALL TIME low high temperature for this date was 28 degrees and I believe both occurred in the late 1800's. Please tell me again how this proves GLOBAL WARMING.
NICE! Although I sure hope that by 2050 they have found an alternative means of powering jet airplanes or their transportation system may take a step backward.
I'm no mathematician, but since the shares purchased through reinvestment also pay dividends which then purchase more shares that also pay dividends, I think the actual total return is WAAAY higher than 16%. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm not sure I understand your point. Are you saying that he was relieved that the smoking did not cause the cancer? I'm really missing how this relates to climate change? Coincidentally, I was a very heavy smoker for over 30 years. I managed to quit 17 years ago but still miss it horribly. In a reunion with an old friend, he felt exactly the same way. He said that if he found out that he only had a short time left to live that he would run right out and buy a carton of cigarettes.
Great post, Penny. There's no money to be made from natural climate change, so they have to sell you on the idea that it's caused by man (whether it's cooling, warming or just plain changing). It's a pleasure hear from someone who can see through the political smokescreen.
So now you are calling me a LIAR? And you're telling me I wasn't there during the 1970's? Unbelevable what your type does when confronted by information they don't want to believe. This exchange is over, sir.
Don't give me "talking points". I was THERE! It was a different time without the 24 hour news cycle or social media. I tried to post a link for your benefit but it was deleted. Your mind is apparently already made up, so I won't try to cloud it with any more facts.
You do realize, I'm sure, that this same alarm was for Global Cooling a mere 40 years ago.
Here's one, but there are MANY more: " The UN’s climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, has acknowledged a 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed recently by Britain’s Met Office "
I apologize for being all over the map, but just in my last link, there are 3,270,000 responses. I admit to only reading the ones that catch my eye.
And now they are talking about selling Hostess (Twinkies, Ho-Ho's, etc.) early next year approximately quadrupling their $410 million dollar investment in less than a year.
I LOVE IT!!! j.wolf might benefit from reading "Seeds of Fire: China And The Story Behind The Attack On America" by Gordon Thomas.
Sorry, I tried posting to you 3 different times, but Yahoo deleted every post. I was merely trying to suggest you google.....IPCC admits no global warming..... Like I told endeo in a previous post, there is a lot of very interesting info that may help to open your eyes a wee bit to your idea of "Settled Science."
