The Software Big Oil's PR Firm Uses To "Convert Average Citizens"

cbeaudry Re:...and Greenpeace... (105 comments)

Is 400 million enough?

Because that's what Greenpeace gathered in funding in 2012.

Besides, its easy to ignore the tens of billions if not 50-100 billion world wide in propaganda spent by the world governements on AGW.

Australian Post Office Opens Mail Forwarding Warehouse In the USA

cbeaudry Re:One has to expect this will be caught up with.. (142 comments)

To some degree, however not really.

Tire life depends on tread wear.

The higher the tread wear, the less sticky the tire.

So tire life (mileage) also depends on tire performance.

High performance tires, or stickier tires, don't last long. If you get a very long lasting tire, it'll be a great highway tire, but not as good at handling and breaking distance.

Computer Scientists Say Meme Research Doesn't Threaten Free Speech

cbeaudry Re:Question (109 comments)

Is it just my misunderstanding or is a viral video NOT a meme?

Not saying the study has this wrong, but many of the commentators seems to have this wrong.

Rite Aid and CVS Block Apple Pay and Google Wallet

cbeaudry Re: Good luck with that. (558 comments)

Though most of Europe was slow to adopt, the UK and especially Canada where almost in lockstep with the USA with Credit Card adoption.

Actually the main reason is regulatory. In the US credit card fraud costs are passed on to the retailers and the consumer (in some cases).
So the banks have had little incentive to change.

cbeaudry Re: Good luck with that. (558 comments)

Maybe in the USA.

In the rest of the world, restaurants have WIFI pay terminals that waitresses can bring to the table for credit card or debit card transactions and all the new ones support NFC as well.

NASA Study: Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed

cbeaudry Re:Everyone should just say "interesting" (295 comments)

My ignorance is showing? How so?

Name calling, is all you do. Denier, ignorant... Care to add a third?

As everyone else who has bought into the climate change movement, when something is a posted or a question is asked, that they cant easily destroy with their talking points, they'll just ignore it.

Take the time to read the link I posted. Then come back and tell me what you think about it. Then... we'll have a discussion.

Right now, you are just preaching. Preachers use words... like "sinner", sounds allot like denier.

You are right, CO2 is not the only factor, a difference in CO2 alone can make a difference.

Good, maybe someone will read it.

Do you have anything to say about the content of the information in that link? Instead of stating the obvious?

cbeaudry Re:Everyone should just say "interesting" (295 comments)

I'm sorry, but you have bought into the movement by first, using the term denier, second thinking science is on the side of the righteous climate movement.

Take the time to read this and let me know what conclusions you come to.

NASA Study: Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed

cbeaudry Re:Everyone should just say "interesting" (295 comments)

You assume there is warming to be found, because the models say so?
Isn't it possible that a chaotic system is just that, chaotic?

In my opinion it describes in a clear and concise way, what the science is not only not settled, but also rests and very shaky ground.

I agree.

I dont know how if it its possible to modify ones own posts, so here is a correction.

The link I wanted to post is this:

I think this brings things back to the source and demonstrates why we are so off the mark.

cbeaudry Re:Everyone should just say "interesting" (295 comments)

I agree with your measured position.

I had a long read last night that really put this in perspective and explained why and how the science just doesn't seem to make sense when it comes to the climate change debate.

If you have a little patience, read the following recent link, to get a good grasp of how Science and peer review have been redefined by the climate movement and why.
Also about the "basic" science surrounding climate science which is flawed from the ground up.

http://wattsupwiththat.com/201... [wattsupwiththat.com]

Read it with an open mind and make your own conclusions. Its what I suggest to anyone.
Its just hard to look at the whole subject with the same mindset after reading this.

NASA Study: Ocean Abyss Has Not Warmed

cbeaudry Re:we get it (295 comments)

Nice way to spin it.
I'm happy and actually quite suprised that NASA decided to write this instead of hide it. However James Hansen is no longer at NASA... so...

But then you go and trash it all up.

CO2 is plant food, as you stated, we all know that. What you might not know is another double of CO2 is exactly what we need to grow the food to feed the growing population we have.

There is nothing to update, as CO2 was, is and always will be plant food.

Now, that aside. The link between CO2 and runaway global warming is a theory with models which does not rest on solid science.

Now before you go and talk about settled this and settled that....

Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, yes.
Causing warmer temperatures, still not proven to the extent the models claim.
Warmer temperatures causing economic losses, there is nothing to demonstrate that is true.

We have no losses to cut, yet. However going towards carbon trading schemes will definitely generate losses for the population and society as a whole.

cbeaudry Re:phase change (295 comments)

Your belief, does not give you a right to be intolerant towards others.
Your beliefs do not make you righteous, no matter what they are.
They are beliefs.

Your comparison to religion is apt. as you make the point of those that state AGW and the CC movement is more akin to a religious movement and dogma than it is to actual science.

35,000 Walrus Come Ashore In Alaska

cbeaudry Re: The problem with double standards. (292 comments)

It is her field of expertise and you are being disingenuous.

This is about walrus behaviour, she knows about animal behaviours and knows this is not a new phenomena.

She also knows that the WWF trying to tie this in to climate change is a self-serving lie, because it can and HAS already been explained or observed before.
