Regular Exercise Not Enough To Make Up For Sitting All Day

hamburger lady Re:Eat less (348 comments)

that isn't 'skinny' at all. that's pretty much ideal for a male of that height and an average build.

Elon Musk Plans To Build Hyperloop Test Track

hamburger lady Re: Finally (165 comments)

That's funny, googling "SSC Texas ring" brings up pages of links all about the superconducting supercollider. Nothing about any sports complex.

Why We Have To Kiss Off Big Carbon Now

hamburger lady Re:Hypocrites, liars and communists. (441 comments)

gravity is just another form of control! it's the liberals trying to keep us close to 'mother earth'. it's bullshit Gaia-ism if you ask me.

Elon Musk Plans To Build Hyperloop Test Track

hamburger lady Re:Finally (165 comments)

dude, this is supposed to be a tech site. if you can't figure out what "SSC" refers to in regards to "a giant ring in texas" you need to have your head examined.

i dunno, maybe you're 13 years old. in which case congratulations on discovering the internet! please be careful.

Why We Have To Kiss Off Big Carbon Now

hamburger lady Re:Hypocrites, liars and communists. (441 comments)

lol.

i work from home. i haven't 'commuted' for years and years. i don't drive. my kid gets jogged into school. i garden and buy food from the farmers' market which is about 200 feet from my house, and the rest comes from a store at the end of the block. i don't go on vacation places.

so i guess in spite of not considering myself to be a "greenie", i have earned the right to call you a fucking retard.

congratulations! you're a fucking retard.

Elon Musk Plans To Build Hyperloop Test Track

hamburger lady Re:He didn't say that (165 comments)

get him some building permits quickly

and more importantly, look the other way if the whole thing explodes killing a dozen people.

all he has to do is promise to load up the location with a few thousand pounds of explosive fertilizer and texas will give him a huge tax rebate.

Obama Planning New Rules For Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Emissions

hamburger lady Re:This makes sense nomatter your politik (202 comments)

skimming the article, they seem to talk of very long terms. like thousands of years, not 100.

there doesn't appear to be anything in the article about the GWP of CH4 over a 100-year window. perhaps you can show it to me, given that you accused the fact of being "BS".

Obama Planning New Rules For Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Emissions

hamburger lady Re:This makes sense nomatter your politik (202 comments)

Methane degrades into CO2, in fact, so in simulations I did (Archer and Buffett, 2005) the radiative forcing from the elevated methane concentration throughout a long release was about matched by the radiative forcing from the extra CO2 accumulating

what's a 'long release'?

Obama Planning New Rules For Oil and Gas Industry's Methane Emissions

hamburger lady Re:Methane compared to CO2 (202 comments)

Or, if you prefer Wikipedia as a source

from your link:

methane's Global warming potential (GWP) for 100-year time horizon: 25.

which is exactly what i said.

hamburger lady Re:This makes sense nomatter your politik (202 comments)

Methane doesn't last long in the atmosphere

that '25 times as powerful as CO2' statistic is its equivalent over a 100-year period. even though methane may not last long before being oxidized into CO2, during that period it has a much greater forcing.

trust me here, methane aint nothin to fuck with. tightening up leaks is inarguably a good thing.

Ted Cruz To Oversee NASA and US Science Programs

hamburger lady Re:What's next? (496 comments)

That's what you get when you elect a man with three Muslim names. His middle name is the best, though: "Hussein". I love saying that! "Hussein". It drives the lefties into a rage!

yeah, if there's one thing 'lefties' hate it's muslims. and sorry, but only his middle name is muslim. i know, i know, when it comes to those goofy africans and their silly names it can be hard to tell the difference but for real and everything!

2014: Hottest Year On Record

hamburger lady Re:This is getting silly (560 comments)

I happen to think that 135 years is ridiculous when we're talking about geological time frames.

the only one talking about geological time frames is you. the rest of us understand that 135 years is more than enough to determine a trend in a climate signal.

55 million years ago the earth was a different place, with a different continental layout (hence no glaciation of the antarctic and greenland). the natural cycle worked completely differently. it's meaningless to bring that up to try to compare to the current epoch.

likewise, it's meaningless as to determining the cause of current warming. the greenhouse effect is basic science. we can measure the stuff we're dumping into the atmosphere. we can determine how much of it is us. we can calculate the effect.

we can use the PETM as a proxy as to how the earth and the biosphere will react to sharply rising CO2 levels but it doesn't inform us much at all about what is causing current warming unless you happen to find similar phenomena to back then. which we haven't found and you cannot present.

2014: Hottest Year On Record

hamburger lady Re:noooo (560 comments)

as i've mentioned elsewhere in this thread, 55 million years ago the earth was balls hotter. i don't mean 'crank up the AC summer's a few degrees hotter'. i mean a shit-ton hotter.

2014: Hottest Year On Record

hamburger lady Re:If it ain't gonna end our species then who care (560 comments)

Well there was an incredible variety of life 55 million years ago

life which was completely different from people and adapted for a much, much hotter earth.

remember that human beings start to die from heatstroke when the wet-bulb temperature hits about 95F. now remember that 55 million years ago the earth's mean temperature was about 30F higher than it is today.
