Extent of Antarctic Sea Ice Reaches Record Levels

pastafazou Re:It's getting hotter still! (607 comments)

This comment isn't a troll. Claiming the area covered is bigger but the volume is much much lower needs a citation. All I've been able to find are "theories" on why the ice is growing in Antarctica.

pastafazou FYI (607 comments)

Arctic sea ice is rebounding too. So Antarctic sea ice is at record levels, and Arctic sea ice has moved well away from it's record low, FYI.

UN Study Shows Record-High Increases For Atmospheric CO2 In 2013

pastafazou Re:Talking Point (427 comments)

That's not moving goalposts. If you ask for the data, you expect you'll get the original recordings, not a bunch of values that have been adjusted arbitrarily at someone's whim without an explanation of those adjustments and a means of extracting the original values.

US Rust Belt Manufacturing Rebounds Via Fracking Boom

pastafazou Re:Fracking takes water out of action (191 comments)

ocean water evaporates, clouds form, rain falls down. As long as this cycle continues, fresh water will continue to renew. F'ing know nothing moron....

US Rust Belt Manufacturing Rebounds Via Fracking Boom

pastafazou Re:Excellent Question (191 comments)

Can you cite an earthquake caused by fracking that actually caused any damage? Poor water quality existed long before fracking. There are plenty of inexpensive solutions to ensure water quality isn't an issue.

How Scientific Consensus Has Gotten a Bad Reputation

pastafazou Re:Crichton is an idiot. (770 comments)

Really? So a scientist postulates a new theory, devises an experiment to test the theory, performs the experiment, and notes the results match the theory. He did this all on his own, without any help. His experiment is repeatable, and it's verifiable. But he hasn't shared the results with anyone yet, so there is no consensus. So what you're claiming is this scenario is impossible?

US Rust Belt Manufacturing Rebounds Via Fracking Boom

pastafazou Re:Fracking takes water out of action (191 comments)

newsflash: fresh water is an infinitely renewable resource. The problem isn't a lack of fresh water, the problem is surplus population in regions prone to natural drought cycles. With proper water reserve infrastructure, development, and management, these regions could easily eliminate water shortages.

US Rust Belt Manufacturing Rebounds Via Fracking Boom

pastafazou Re:Excellent Question (191 comments)

It's been happening for 60 years now, and there have been zero deaths, and zero environmental disasters. Safer than nuclear, safer than coal, safer than wind turbines. Just because you used an expletive for emphasis in your closing sentence, doesn't mean you're right.

How Scientific Consensus Has Gotten a Bad Reputation

pastafazou Re:Crichton is an idiot. (770 comments)

I'd say you're an idiot. Crichton is right. One scientist with a repeatable, verifiable experiment can prove many many many scientists who happen to think they're right, wrong. Consensus shouldn't have any place in science.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

pastafazou Re:Here's an idea (448 comments)

Not an issue of whether it's a popular opinion or not, it's a useless opinion. You can't change the fact that the 2nd Iraq war was started, so stop bitching about it.

Could Tech Have Stopped ISIS From Using Our Own Heavy Weapons Against Us?

pastafazou Re:No. (448 comments)

Never mind the fact that nobody would want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on equipment from a foreign supplier that could be shut down remotely by that foreign power.

Invasion of Ukraine Continues As Russia Begins Nuclear Weapons Sabre Rattling

What satellite photos are you expecting to see? The US military satellites whose images are classified? Or were you expecting the cable networks to somehow turn their broadcast satellites into spy satellites? You're a total asshat.

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

pastafazou pastafazou writes  |  about a year and a half 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."
