    Why I really have a hard time taking global doomsday from climate change seriously

    I actually agree with you on this. If you're idiot enough to build or buy your house on an alluvial flood plain, what happens to it when the floods come is your own damn fault, you absorb 100% of the costs. I'm all for that. Been dealing with government-supported flood insurance raising costs...

    The populists' choice

    Warren, who I would actually vote for, will never run as President. This person will stop that from ever occurring: If Biden falls flat on his face as the front runner (and I hope he does, actually)- the DNC is going to pile up behind Harris. (sad, but Warren will get left out on the curb).

    Why I really have a hard time taking global doomsday from climate change seriously

    I would have guessed the 4 most important things you can do for the environment of the planet we occupy are (in order of total impact): 1. Design and promote and implement ways that provide a solid, proven, environmental gain while also providing a monetary incentive to the consumer to choose...

    Why I really have a hard time taking global doomsday from climate change seriously

    well, at least we have your guidance on who to vote for the last president- since by 2024, the entire world will be underwater, knowing who to vote for in 2020 is a real benefit, dontcha think?

    The populists' choice

    Hell with it, let's just elect Joe the Plumber - he's old enough now. At least its better than the idiots saying they are gonna run for President in 2020 and who won't be old enough to try because of the Constitutional age requirement. I also kind of like the Google CEO declaring to run for...

    Can I get a dr please?

    you realize it now becomes incumbent to link these two threads- if we assume that the 2 die rolls requested for random selection - then we will need to factor in the randomness of the random number generating die. Then, of course, we will also need to factor in the randomness of the dice tower...

    fresh water and sediment are the main ingredients in fossil formations and some of them are amazingly intact. Steel, especially coarse grade alloy steel- will develop a thin later of surface oxidation and then all decay will stop for a very long period of time, unless acted upon by constant flow...

    Remember the "proper military funeral" may be as simple as listing the section of the river where the boat was located as a "registered war grave". Many European countries have vastly different outlooks on repatriating war dead than Americans have held since around 1950 or so. It's simply a...
