The Misleading Fliers Comcast Used To Kill Off a Local Internet Competitor

James Buchanan Re: If... (242 comments)

Now, reverse your theory,is the rule of quote science quote, a better possibility? Or are they wrong at times,also. Like a proposed theory, wrongly stated? Or wrong. Politicians of another culture, politicians divorced from the realities of life? To be in charge? That's wrong also, not better. So what's wrong with politics? Wrong people in power? America has a solution for that. The revolution happens happily every two years. No guns, no bloodshed, just tears for the loser. And I hope the koch bros lose this year...the american people need a win for a change.

The Last Three Months Were the Hottest Quarter On Record

James Buchanan Re: 1800s (552 comments)

Sorry you think so, I thought the data for major population centers, where the churches, and the arts were taught, went back to the 1600's. Some earlier even. But then if you are going off datasets, I thought the MWP was a full three degrees warmer then the 1990's. Which were warmer then now. And there were warmer periods prior to that. So, I'll go back to the SciFi channel and watch sharknado 2 and scream over the destruction of the world.

Senator Al Franken Accuses AT&T of "Skirting" Net Neutrality Rules

James Buchanan Re: verizon, comcast? (81 comments)

Just try and use it away from home. Out get used to a technical usage,of part of the product, and then the third world of you cannot do that here, because you live in the wrong neighborhood, or visiting the wrong side of the street. After all, I'm not paying the bill there, am I. But, my service says "mobile". And it's not....

Climate Change Skeptic Group Must Pay Damages To UVA, Michael Mann

James Buchanan Re: "Thus ends "Climategate." Hopefully." (497 comments)

Sorry you are so limited in scope. What this reenforced is secrecy in government. Mann was working on a government grant, with the permissions of his employer, a state college, also a government entity. He produced a product that has been called flawed. The statistics have been reworked, flawed. People, including other scientists, are asking the what and where of his research, he won"t release that research, or the emails related to the research where his basic tenant started to deviate. Or the databases used, or program that says your CO2 is the problem. But your shipping our jobs to 3rd world countries is now " solving" the problem. He he he!.

Hacking Internet Connected Light Bulbs

James Buchanan Re: Borg Home (63 comments)

Sorry about this comment, think of what else may be built into the common light bulb,and realize the security and privacy implications. Then think of the recent miniaturizations that have been put forward,with the higher input voltages,what else needs to be available for low level spying.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

James Buchanan Re: I got this one guys (190 comments)

Try finding a clean swimming place overseas. Try finding something to drink in the backwoods even in america. You have to be careful especially in america, you aren't as immune as the the third world is. The clean water let's you live longer but at a price that you had to adapt to. You system, will not protect you from the worms, the illnesses or the problems of ingested poisions available to the rest of the world. We survive on shit free ponds, with filtered and semifreash, they thrive on the blue stream,the brown to black infested water where uthey get a days worth of protein with every swallow. But we are loosening our rules. Soon after the tea party wins, you will get to have the same waters as our foreign cousins. Ain't we lucky.

Spanish Conquest May Have Altered Peru's Shoreline

James Buchanan Re: Weren't the Peruvians altering the coast? (94 comments)

So they were stabilizing dunes,after the party, with shells. How neat. Stop the dunes from the inundation of their village. Wow, geoengeering at the lowest form. Cool.

Spanish Conquest May Have Altered Peru's Shoreline

James Buchanan Re: Weren't the Peruvians altering the coast? (94 comments)

Au contrair Mon fear. Colonization a white person invention? That's racist. Colonization was a Arab ormesopitian proclivity, as well, even Egyptians practiced it. As far back as we can see, it was practiced. Each race,each city group, each family or clan practiced it. I know you are referring only to the English version of it, but the baddest ass of every group practiced colonization, taking over the next territory, or clan to improve their livelihood or survival ability. So back to your little ivory tower and spew more claptrap.

Rising Sea Level Could Put East Coast Nuclear Plants At Risk

James Buchanan Re: Where does 7 feet of water come from? (323 comments)

The unfortunate thing they forget to mention, much of the Antarctic is ice over water, not land. There are several thousand foot of ice cube in your ocean already. Same with the Greenland islands. Look at the maps. Where they drill is over water,

Rising Sea Level Could Put East Coast Nuclear Plants At Risk

James Buchanan Re: Where does 7 feet of water come from? (323 comments)

But the crysosat data missed lake superior. They had to look there by a standard photo sat. Record ice. Why, or is the data filtered to present a viewpoint? Why? Canadians were late getting their breaker out, to the saint Lawrence, why? Ice in the harbor? And had to use their ocean branch to break in first, not enough warming there? Or did they believe the hype, instead of being prepared like usual. Alarmist crap means more problems, not being prepared for tomorrow.

Rising Sea Level Could Put East Coast Nuclear Plants At Risk

James Buchanan Re: Where does 7 feet of water come from? (323 comments)

Its not the warming water I'm nervous about, its the frozen water expansion. Try growing something on ice. Generally polar bears do good then,but humans have a hard time with limited food production. Meaning less education, and more warfare over limited resources. Warm,means education, production, and resources available, more life. More diversity.

Studies: Wildfires Worse Due To Global Warming

James Buchanan Re: Facts are there (379 comments)

He's not counter scientific, just as this blog isn't scientific. Blog implies disemenation of word, no truth just word to start the thought processes. Then a decision can be attempted to be formulated to a rational output. GIGO.

Were there no wildfires prior to 84? I bet there were, attributed to global cooling, and Santn Anna's.

Studies: Wildfires Worse Due To Global Warming

James Buchanan Re: Its Global Warming (379 comments)

Not because of water level drop, but because the minerals dissolve out of an area, because of ground water being there. It's a natural phenomenon.

Yes, its called geo-engeering. World modification. But, what if they make a mistake? Whereto you fall back to? Just a question? So why aren't they supporting off world missions by humans?

You Are What You're Tricked Into Eating

James Buchanan Re: Ass time (499 comments)

Supermarkets have a habit of only being where they are are profitable, not where the customers are. Illogical but, is there enough openspace in an urban environment without forcing the customer base to another area? Or does community planning reserve space by community pathways for markets? So 7-11 fills the nitche where a Kroger's cannot afford to be, don't blame a customer for a retailer's fault.

You Are What You're Tricked Into Eating

James Buchanan Re: Ass time (499 comments)

So faux news puts on cooking shows? Cspan does reviews of the latest grastomic delights? Or Playboy goes hunting? Well maybe the last does. But as above, cable vs food, connection? There are parts of the world where you get a basic service by the tax dollar. Or the ability is there to obtain for little cost. But food is a necessity,no revolution, no procreation, no next week without food. Same with water and air, price it where the few are only able to afford it, and you get the Bundies controlling part of it. When crazies control part of your supply chain, can it be safe?.

Mazda Says Its Upcoming Gas-Powered Cars Will Emit Less CO2 Than Electric Cars

James Buchanan Re: My electric is hydro/nuclear (330 comments)

Right. But better utilization creates less pollution then, we still need power plants, the developed countries are generally colder, they need heating in the cold seasons now and in the future. Global warming means only that the weather changes,along with the seasons. The al,s lied to you, when they blamed the weather on the output of one gas. And patterns are cyclic,we were in the end of a warm period, if the cycle was at the end of a warm period, guess what's has started, and let's hope this period isn't the beginning of the long cycle. Hpoe for a ten year hiatus, not the hundred year overdue cycle, or the start of ythe about due ten thousand year cycle. Its good to be worked about the earth, since we as a people live here, limit pollution,try to make this place the heaven it could be. And that means not rewarding those shanens of terror such as al..
