You really thing the plan is to do the country good? It's nothing more than another round of freebies for a target voting block.

Michael Mann: Swiftboating Comes To Science

pastafazou Re:What exactly do you mean by "Fraud"? (786 comments)

I didn't claim that earth radiates IR from anywhere, I claimed that the water vapor as a feedback is false. You are incorrect. But let's pursue your claim further, shall we? You claim Earth radiates IR from the top of the atmosphere. If that were the case, why are we concerned about CO2 then? The CO2 warming theory states that CO2 absorbs upward IR radiation, and re-emits it in all directions, including back down. This is why it causes an increase of temperature. So how is it possible that CO2 can absorb IR radiation from a point below the top of the atmosphere, and how is it possible that it can emit IR radiation below the top of the atmosphere, if our atmosphere only radiates IR from the top (according to you)?

Michael Mann: Swiftboating Comes To Science

pastafazou Re:What exactly do you mean by "Fraud"? (786 comments)

Not entirely true. Water vapour in the atmosphere moves massive amounts of heat from the surface to the upper atmosphere. It works almost like a refrigeration system. The water vapour feedback theory is incorrect.

Hey Moron, our bodies use aerobic energy. Consuming Glucose and Oxygen, our muscles generate energy, and produce water and carbon dioxide as a byproduct. We're not recycling it. C6H12O6 + 6O2 => 6CO2 + 6H2O + 2900 kJ/mol. As you can see, new Carbon Dioxide molecules are created from the complex hydrocarbon and oxygen reaction.

Your comment won't be popular here. Slashdot is a haven for leftist ideology. Calling them out on their hypocrisy will only get you modded down.

2014: Hottest Year On Record

pastafazou Re: noooo (560 comments)

So why is Germany going full speed ahead with the construction of 26 more coal burning power plants? Oh, that's right, Germany is forced to import two thirds of the energy it consumes, and the massive investments in renewables hasn't done anything to change this situation. Here's an interesting development in Germany's quest for wind powered electricity: Wind power woes.

2014: Hottest Year On Record

pastafazou Re: noooo (560 comments)

You're only getting half of the numbers when talking about subsidies. You're referring to subsidies for construction of new projects. I'm talking about the subsidies paid on the electricity generated by renewables. Please see this article for more info: Wall Street Journal.
If you're too lazy to click and read, here's the base numbers you need:
subsidies per megawatt hour
wind: $56.29
natural gas: $0.56
nuclear: $3.14
Those numbers show you how bad wind is for mainstream power generation. The only reason we have so many being built is because of the massive subsidies being paid for the "clean" energy they produce. However, at some point the subsidies run out, and then the turbines become a financial burden. There are times when it makes sense to build a wind turbine, such as a remote location far from the grid. But these times are few and far between. Wind turbines are nothing but a scam, and thirty years from now we're going to see these things abandoned and derelict all over the world.

pastafazou Re: noooo (560 comments)

bullshit. Wind is a waste of money. We abandoned it centuries ago as a form of power due to it's inconsistency. The only reason we're seeing large wind projects being built is because of massive subsidies. If wind power generation were allowed to compete on a level playing field with all other power sources, it would become extinct in no time. Nuclear is the only viable solution to replace fossil fuels as our primary source of power generation.

Study: Police Body-Cams Reduce Unacceptable Use of Force

pastafazou Re:No s**t Sherlock (368 comments)

Your comment is horseshit. Commenting about choking you to death is obviously alluding to the Garner case. Garner was resisting arrest. The police are authorized to apply force to enforce the laws. Resisting arrest allows the police to use force as necessary to apprehend the suspect. Did the police officer draw his gun and shoot Garner? No, he applied a choke hold in order to subdue and cuff him. Unfortunately, Garner died as a result of this altercation. However, the intent of the officer was not to kill him. It's unfortunate that Garner died, but had he not resisted, he'd be alive today.

Scotland's money comes from the English tax payer.
That's because Scottish arms are too short to reach the bottoms of their deep trouser pockets. Money goes in, but can't ever be reached when needed.

Gun Control: If it saves just one child....

pastafazou pastafazou writes  |  about 2 years ago

pastafazou (648001) writes "A boy in Washington, DC was being viciously mauled by three unleashed pit bulls when a neighbor came to his rescue. Running into his house to fetch his handgun, the neighbor opened fire on the dogs. A nearby police officer, responding to the sound of gunfire, arrived on the scene and assisted in shooting the dogs. The boy, saved by the actions of the gun-sporting neighbor, is recovering in hospital with severe wounds. The neighbor, meanwhile may be facing charges."
