International Climate Panel Cites Near Certainty On Warming

Gonzodoggy global warming (510 comments)

Seems to me that the climate on this planet has been changing for over 4 billion years. Get over it. If it wasn't for climate change, most of Europe and North America would be under several thousand feet of ice. Suck it up. Get over it.

Climate Change Skeptic Results Released Today

Gonzodoggy Of course the planet is warming (776 comments)

We've been warming for several thousand years. If we weren't, I'd be living under or on top of, a two mile thick sheet of ice.

The main debate is, is man causing the warming?

UK To Shut Down Social Networks?

Gonzodoggy Censorship is useless (403 comments)

It's better to just use short range jamming on those freq's than to censor an entire network. Besides, it's not like the Brit's have a 4th amendment. It's just as easy to monitor certain accounts in real time, or nearly so.

A better question to ask might be, why their current, much vaunted CCTV surveillance isn't doing a better job of nabbing those hooilgans earlier in the process?

Fukushima Meltdown Might Have Come With Earthquake, Not Tsunami

Gonzodoggy Keep in mind (172 comments)

that this was a 9.1 quake. Those 40 year old reactors were only designed to take an 8.1. It's amazing they held up as long as they did.

Utah To Teach USA is a Republic, Not a Democracy

Gonzodoggy Oh, but, we are a republic. (1277 comments)

The funny thing is, they're right, we are a republic and not a democracy. In a republic, you elect representatives to cast votes on your behalf. In a democracy, you vote for everything.

An Inbox Is Not a Glove Compartment

Gonzodoggy What about the post office? (316 comments)

Based on this argument, then, the govt. could seize your snail mail with out a warrant on the same basis. i.e. you're putting your correspondence in the hands of a third party. If anything, e-mail should be more inviolate because, it's not in any type of physical format that's "passing through the hands of a third party"

Visualizing False Positives In Broad Screening

Gonzodoggy Second opinion (365 comments)

While it's true that there will be false positives, as well as false negatives, you don't convict someone, or have a lung removed, without further testing. When I was diagnosed for cancer, I was tested and re-tested to verify that there was, indeed, cancer. The same goes with screening for terrorists, or anything else. Did the article mention the rate for false negatives as well? After all, if you have a five pound tumor hanging off you face, and your doctor tells you there's nothing wrong, I'd definitely want a second opinion!
