The Billion-Dollar Website

Bartles Re:Did you expect anything else? (194 comments)

Actually, just about every metric for measuring the economy is far worse now than it was 8 years ago. So no, both administrations aren't equally bad. The one you voted for and support is far worse.

Yeah, that's all great. But they nominated Cynthia McKinney. If it had been David Duke would you be saying the same thing? Ultimately, the candidate matters.

The difference being that the people on the left that recognized it as a giant clusterfuck, still supported it and the politicians that forced it upon us. Authoritarians don't care if their provided services are good or bad.

You do realize that Cynthia McKinney was the Green Party nominee in 2008, right? For me, it would take a lot for them to right that wrong and get my consideration again.

Bartles Re: biased algorith (177 comments)

And sometimes an algorithm can't predict the future OR correctly duplicate the past. Just see global temperature models.

There are things called Unilateral Sanctions. European resistance can't prevent them.

I'm still trying to figure out how European resistance prevented the US from enacting unilateral sanctions.

Are you saying that the reason Obama didn't create strong US sanctions against Russia was because of European resistance?

The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record

Bartles Re: The Heartland Institute (552 comments)

OK, then if we narrow the scope to what is generally regarded as the historic era, we are looking at about 5,000 years. A relative microsecond in the life of planet Earth.

North America was much closer to the equator and the topography was entirely different.

Dinosaurs ate proto-humans? I'm talking about the period when CO2 levels were much, much higher.

I'm always amazed at how many people that outright reject Rush Limbaugh still listen to his show.

Bartles Re:1800s (552 comments)

800,000 thousand years? That sure sounds like a long time, but I'm just an ignorant, lowly human. Didn't some of the largest life forms in the history of the world exist when we had much, much higher concentrations of CO2?
