Greenpeace: Amazon Fire Burns More Coal and Gas Than It Should

Pino Grigio Re: Clever editors. (275 comments)

There is a difference. The Capitalist CEO acquires his wealth by making and selling things, or providing a service to other people, or managing an organisation that does this. If people don't like his product or service, he doesn't make any money.

Whereas a Marxist CEO makes his wealth by conning gullible pricks into donating money to him so he can flounce around the world in a fucking Boeing (made by capitalists, please note) telling other people not to fly and suggesting that one solution to all of the worlds ills is for the people who made his Boeing and all of the hundreds of thousands of other companies that made the parts of his Boeing, to start growing fucking turnips instead.

And if he can't achieve that, he'd quite like much higher taxes on "the little people" to persuade them that he's right.

Greenpeace: Amazon Fire Burns More Coal and Gas Than It Should

Pino Grigio Re: Clever editors. (275 comments)

The word "Marxism" means quite a lot to the founder of Greenpeace.

Sweeping statements... let me think, it was all over the newspapers and in the news that this sanctimonious little prick was flying to and from work several hundred miles away.

Yes, Greenpeace want to prevent you from making certain choices, like driving a car (it's OK to drive a car if you're doing important work trying to stop other people driving cars, obviously), having children or eating efficiently produced food.

Wake the fuck up.

Greenpeace: Amazon Fire Burns More Coal and Gas Than It Should

Pino Grigio Re: Clever editors. (275 comments)

Why are you even curious about it? It's because "big charity" and Greenpeace particularly, don't give a flying fuck about the environment. They're Marxists and like good Marxists they've implemented a good Marxist model internally with their CEO getting paid a thick wedge of cash and flying to work. What they want is to carry on their pissy little lives promoting policies to prevent you from doing the same.

The CEO of Greenpeace is on my list of people to punch.

No he's right you complete fucking cretin. Perhaps you need to BOTHER TO CHECK before you comment about things you don't fucking understand.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

Pino Grigio Re: it is the wrong way... (291 comments)

It's simply a question of it going from where there was at least some regulation to where this is precious little to none. It's what happens when you over-regulate.

Black Holes Not Black After All, Theorize Physicists

Pino Grigio Re:wat (224 comments)

I'm not a mathematician or a physicist, just a bemused observer. I would assert (probably naively), that Leibniz principle of sufficient reason implies the existence of at least one infinity (the existence of time, assuming time is real of course) and if not that then I would at least assert that the idea everything that exists can be modelled mathematically might be a fallacy and that mathematics more closely matches the workings of the Human mind than it does the nature of reality. That is to say, that even after all of the forces, fields, particle and laws of physics have been enumerated and described, there will still something left to explain.

That's about as far as my brain can take me.

Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

Pino Grigio Re:let me correct that for you. (611 comments)

15 years ago Germany embraced fiscal austerity, cut labour costs and embraced structural reforms. It isn't a "socialist society" unless by that you mean to suggest that the State levies taxes and spends those taxes on social programmes. Well, that's an extremely weak definition of "socialism" by any standard. Indeed so weak as to be absurd.

Peer Review does not guarantee correctness. It just means that one group of academics has either prevented another group from publishing, or managed to get their own group's paper published.

Secondly, these kinds of study are subject to The Decline Effect, where the original spittle and salivation over the result soon turns to bemusement as it fails replication 25 years later.

Yes they do and if it wasn't for Germany and Germany economic strength, they'd be up a creek without a paddle. Some say they're up said creek now as unlike Germany they stubbornly refuse to reform their labour laws. Right now they have 10% unemployment and over 22% youth unemployment.

Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

Pino Grigio Re:let me correct that for you. (611 comments)

The Nazis were socialists. For example, Goebbels:

That is our real task as National Socialists. We were the first to recognize the connections, and the first to begin the struggle. Because we are socialists we have felt the deepest blessings of the nation, and because we are nationalists we want to promote socialist justice in a new Germany.

Nazism is socialism with nationalism thrown in for free. The only reason the Nazis didn't nationalise everything was because in the 1930's when they were having their "days of strudel", the Nazi Party managed to bank millions of Reichsmarks from big business. Goebbels was in favour of destroying the corporates once they'd won power, but Hitler overruled him precisely because of these financial connections.

Really, the clue is in the name, "National Socialism".

Russian Government Edits Wikipedia On Flight MH17

Pino Grigio Re:Let us keep our thoughts with our Kremlin frien (667 comments)

I couldn't care less whether you're insulted or not. I've read so much BS on this and other issues related to Putin I'm sick of it. The only reason the West gives him the time of day is because they fear an even bigger loon taking charge there. And whilst you complain that it's disrespectful to the relatives of those who died, Putins thugs rummage through the wreckage, dump the bodies on a train, run off with the black boxes and get rid of any incriminating evidence. If it wasn't them I expect they'd be scrupulous in preserving the crash scene.

Don't tell me you're being "Mr Reasonable" here. You're just another one of Putin's useful idiots.

Can the Multiverse Be Tested Scientifically?

Pino Grigio Re:String theory is not science (147 comments)

No it's not testable. I don't know where you get the idea that it is.

Can the Multiverse Be Tested Scientifically?

Pino Grigio Re:String theory is not science (147 comments)

No, it's a computer model. A compute model is often (in engineering for example) a conceptual representation of real entities. However in many cases the model is more a conceptual representation of the biases and assumptions of the people who made it, being unreal in that sense. It isn't science and math isn't science either.
The idea that ultimately there's nothing here indicates (though you might not know it) the presence of what Cairns-Smith called "the bomb in the basement of modern physics" and the difference between the thing in itself and the thing as it appears. Physics is good for the latter but has nothing to say about the former.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

Pino Grigio Re: it is the wrong way... (291 comments)

Yes, that's because we've sent all of our "polluting" (note: carbon dioxide isn't pollution) industries to China, along with a lot of jobs and wealth.
