Antarctic Ice Loss Big Enough To Cause Measurable Shift In Earth's Gravity

NetNed Re:Whoah, wait a minute... (173 comments)

Kinda like the whole story that focuses on one area of a continent instead of the whole continent and uses that as proof the whole continent it that way even when it is measured that it is not. The area they always use is a unstable part of Antarctica. Using it as the model for the whole continent is like using a desert to judge the state of the continent. The whole article is a garbage piece and an example of how low the AGW people will go to keep the money rolling, bending the very science they claim as "FACT!" or "indisputable".

Obama Presses China On Global Warming

NetNed Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

THEY HAVE THE WORST OVER ALL!!!! There are lots of cities in china where the smog is so thick it looks like fog, fog that really never goes away. When it does it's considered RARE. You can taste the air, with a sulfur like taste to it. You sometimes can't see across the street. They have to hold flights regularly at major airport in China because smog has decrease visibility too much. Beijing's air is measured 16 times MORE polluted then New York's. 16 of the 20 worst air polluted cities are in China. I don't have to draw conclusions when the facts say so. That's like saying it's my conclusion that water is wet, ice is cold, and fire is hot.


I think you are reading some reports from around the time the Olympics were in Beijing, the same reports that were proven to be bogus, and falsified to secure the Olympics for China.

Obama Presses China On Global Warming

NetNed Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

No it doesn't. It's factually wrong. China is THE WORST AIR QUALITY of the major nations. Like I said, the sun looks like the moon through the smog and you can stare directly at ti for a bit without getting sun spots in your eyes. My lens is reality, whats yours?

NetNed Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

Really, they could give two shits about it. Much like the games in Beijing, it just one big PR move after another. It's all to keep the companies that have set up shop there and have been called out for profiting off such a polluting country.

Obama Presses China On Global Warming

NetNed Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

Maybe they see it as the scam it is?? For all the money spend what is the returns? I'm not talking about cleaning our waterways and areas, those always fell under pollution. Climate change is it's own monster that was cooked up by those looking to capitalize off it. Even Al Gore's mentor, the supposed god father of green house gases, reversed his stance on the subject in the later years of his life. How did Gore accept this? By calling him senile. Can't stop the gravy train.

Obama Presses China On Global Warming

NetNed Nobody sees a shakedown? (260 comments)

With all the wrong models, manipulated temperatures, falsifying of facts, how can anyone take this seriously? Really, all the info is out there. The same people that claim it's "science" don't want a thing to do with the facts in the matter. If you are such a patron of science then why would you accept stats that are micro managed and manipulated to get an outcome worse then what the facts show? Look up how the "97%" figure is really reached. Look up how temperatures are manipulated. Really, it's become beyond the level of religious zealotry as people now a days can ever admit they are wrong. They try to link everything to climate change, even earth quakes as if we have a bunch of idiots that would even think the two could even be closely related. Reality, history and SCIENCE tell us that they are not even closely related other then an earthquake does have an effect on the environment of the areas they occur in.

NetNed Re:The pot calling the kettle black (260 comments)

While I agree with the nuclear plants being shit on by misinformation and political corruption, China is about the worst model when it comes to clean air. The sun looks like the moon in almost all cities in China because of smog.

Hundreds of Thousands Turn Out For People's Climate March In New York City

NetNed Re:Just in time for another record cold winter (200 comments)

Science is changing every environmental measurement scale to make things seem more extreme? Look that up. Tornadoes and hurricanes now have factored in the amount of damage they do. So a F3 tornado on the old scale becomes a F5 because it hits a more heavily populated area. Same with earthquake scales. Now winter storms are receiving names even though I remember storms just as bad in my youth, now they are "extreme!!!" Tropical storms are now "SUPERSTORMS!!!". The kicker is we are less then a year past the IPCC models to be proven wrong and they still are hammering home that their prediction are still correct even though there was scientific proof that no significant warming to place in the last 15+ years. You can't tout science till it doesn't agree with your stance because it makes you a hypocrite and makes the people that ignore it seem like they are out for money and nothing else. I was like the CC community touting Gore as the messiah till his hypocritical action were pointed out, then it was "well he isn't really a scientist, and he doesn't stand for all CC believers". I akin it to fans of certain baseballers not wanting to admit the players they are big fans of did steroids to reach the level they did.

Unintended Consequences For Traffic Safety Feature

NetNed Stupid senor and camera lights (579 comments)

Couldn't it also be the camera and senor light that usually accompany these? It my area they have put these everywhere and I would have to say they are a utter failure. For one they have increased traffic, making "catching the light" next to impossible on most roads. Second, they changed the cycle of the lights to where one direction has a green and the opposite will have a red with no indication to the motorist on the red light side, especially the ones pulling out of corner gas stations and stores, that on coming traffic has a green light. I see at least 3 near hits a week at one on my drive in to work each morning and considering how close it's to the intersection, I would say it would be considered a intersection incident. Third, timing these lights is next to impossible. One close to my house when they first put it in would stay red for the more busy street for over 3 minutes (Once timed it at 4 minutes and 10 seconds early in the morning). When it was messed up I would see 5 to 6 people a week get tired of waiting and blow the red. Heck I did it more then once. So coming to one of these light, you never know when it's going to change. When there was no sensor or cameras, then timing the lights that were on a set timer was a lot easier. Now? Next to impossible.

Google, Detroit Split On Autonomous Cars

NetNed Re:Detroit calls Google arrogant? (236 comments)

Maverick was around before the pinto and was actually quite a good running car and cheap to maintain. Once the car was made in BRAZIL, no models of it were sold in the US.

Google, Detroit Split On Autonomous Cars

NetNed Re:Detroit calls Google arrogant? (236 comments)

Who exactly didn't know this? It was common knowledge that Mazda was 4 cylinder building engines for Ford everywhere in Michigan. Heck they had a plant in Michigan that was a Mazda plant that built only Ford engines for a while. The Numi plant in California was a Toyota/GM(Pontiac) plant till Pontiac ceased to be and that was no secret. I don't recall any of that being "hidden" or misrepresented in any way. It's been out there for a while. If you as a consumer didn't pick up on it or missed it, then that's your deal. You also have it pretty wrong in regards to who "built" the cars. Components of the cars were done by other manufacturers, but final assembly was done by the actual maker of the cars unless you are talking about europe. In the state, even in the Numi plant, Toyota workers built the Toyota and Pontiac workers built the Pontiac.


I think, considering they have been making cars for a LONG time, automakers have all the reason in the world to blow off google. It would be like patient telling a Doctor what technique he should use for an operation.

Climate Change Prompts Emperor Penguins To Find New Breeding Grounds

NetNed Re:HUH? (215 comments)

Never been observed? The story says it's been observed for years. Didn't you RTFA? Also, the average ocean temp is about 1 degrees higher then it was in 1880, so I am going to have to doubt that a penguins sense of temp is so sensitive that it can pick up as much as a 1/2 a degree of temp change.
