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.

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?

Oh, sure. All the great innovations that business and corporations have developed were clearly the result of rejecting science. Idiot.

15-Year-Old Developing a 3D Printer 10x Faster Than Anything On the Market

Bartles Re:Bet it doesn't work (203 comments)

You just feed into a heated hopper that keeps a larger volume of molten plastic, instead of doing the melting at the print head which requires high localized heat.

Microsoft Takes Down No-IP.com Domains

Bartles Re:The reason is power. (495 comments)

I entirely disagree that Kelo is not applicable. This is what O'Connor wrote in her dissent.

"Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random. The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms."
