Peer Review Ring Broken - 60 Articles Retracted

slackware 3.6 Peer review (178 comments)

is about getting your buddy to agree with you and now they even have fake buddies. I'm sure this is the only time this happened. Kind of how 93% of scientists believe the earth is flat, or is it colder or hotter or do the buffaloes fart more methane than bison? Peer reviewed scientific papers can be trusted to be factual as much as a Catholic priest can be trusted around a young boy.

World's First Large-Scale Waste-to-Biofuels Facility Opens In Canada

slackware 3.6 Re:I guess it's something (96 comments)

You really are an idiot, go "idle no more" or get your facts straight. About 0.15 per cent of global GHG emissions comes from oil sands development. Hardly the epicentre of global warming you idiot.

Patent Troll Ordered To Pay For the Costs of Fighting a Bad Patent

slackware 3.6 Re: Green Efficiency (191 comments)

Where I live in Canada a septic field cost 45, 000 min and a well is 25, 000 an power hookup is 25, 000 to 50, 000. Then you still have to build the house .

Shrinking Waves May Save Antarctic Sea Ice

slackware 3.6 Re: Burn the Climate Deniers (298 comments)

Galileo is a good example of how peer review works (you know your buddy agreeing with you). 97% percent of scientists called Galileo a heretic and a denier of flat earth.
In the modern day we have liars like Dr James Hanson for example, but most of the nonsense spewed about global warming is coming from politicians and celebrities who are considered climate scientists by idiots like you.

GM Sees a Market For $5/Day Dedicated In-Car Internet

slackware 3.6 Re: $150 MRC for hotspot that doesn't travel with (216 comments)

Explorer weighs 2 tons my F150 weighs 2200 lb. And a full sized truck that gets 20mpg is good fuel economy for a work truck usually carring 1, 000 lb. Example of another full sized truck from 87 that has better fuel economy?

GM Sees a Market For $5/Day Dedicated In-Car Internet

slackware 3.6 Re:$150 MRC for hotspot that doesn't travel with y (216 comments)

Idiots should keep their mouths shut so no one knows how stupid they are. An F-150 in a 1/2 ton truck, mine averages 20mpg. An Explorer is a 1/4 ton truck,and what do you suggest to drop three kids off at school, a Smart car? Let me guess an enviro nutjob like yourself believes in sending perfectly good vehicles to the wreckers because they are last years model and not cool enough. Who cares about the C02 emissions from the manufacture of new vehicles.

GM Sees a Market For $5/Day Dedicated In-Car Internet

slackware 3.6 Re:$150 MRC for hotspot that doesn't travel with y (216 comments)

My daily driver is an 87 F-150 I6 4speed, slow but fuel efficient and can haul a heavy load (my work truck). My wife drives a 96 Explorer, her commute is less than 5 minutes between work and dropping kids off at school. We share a 97 Dodge neon for highway trips, gets 40 MPG with some mods and cheap on parts if your somewhat of a mechanic. Then there is the big work truck a 2006 Dodge 1 ton diesel hardly get used at all unless I need to use the big trailer. None of my vehicles have rust or any body damage, look nice and meet all emission regulations. Old vehicles are very much alive for 20 years if you treat them well and people like me enjoy swapping a motor or tranny on a Sunday afternoon.

Actual Results of Crimean Secession Vote Leaked

slackware 3.6 Re:well (557 comments)

The grandson of Joseph Stalin wants a criminal case to be opened against Ukrainian investigators of the 1930s mass famine. Last week a Ukrainian court put the blame for the famine on Stalin and several other officials. Evgeny Dzhugashvili believes the sentence is libelous and wants the agents of the Ukrainian Security Service involved in the case as well as the judges who reviewed it to be punished for the decision, he told the Ukrainian newspaper Sevodnya. http://rt.com/news/stalins-gra...

Vlad, good Ukrainian name there. Or does it have more of a Russian feel to it? And especially how you forgot about the three year occupation. Vlad the German just doesn't make sense.

Scientists Race To Develop Livestock That Can Survive Climate Change

slackware 3.6 Re:Screw the feedback loop (291 comments)

Northern climate if you can't farm or graze or drill oil the land is useless. It's to cold to do anything else up here. But we do have a very rapid growing season (4 months of sunlight 18 hours a day) and billions of ares of grassy leafy things that go to waste every year.

Scientists Race To Develop Livestock That Can Survive Climate Change

slackware 3.6 Re:Screw the feedback loop (291 comments)

Different part of the world but I get your point. I personally believe food animals and fish should be grown in more northern climates. Colder temperatures mean less parasites and sickness and firmer better marbled meat in my opinion (mind you it does suck to live up here). I live on the edge of the boreal forest, lots of steep hills and sloughs between fields and a short but very rapid growing season. Without cows the bush grows in very dense and thorny, cows are really the only animal that can clean the bush of scrub (mainly by trampling) and leave the nice larger trees alone. The vegetation around here basically can't be killed out unless you overgraze but typically people put about 30 cows per quarter section. And after the cows clean up you can put horses on the land but they don't really have food value around here so kind of off topic.

Scientists Race To Develop Livestock That Can Survive Climate Change

slackware 3.6 Re:Way Way off. (291 comments)

Currently -10C at the North Pole lots of melting going on there. Ever hear of the North-West passage? Why is it still frozen over, with all this melting ships should be traveling back and forth especially since 2012 was supposed to be a record warm year. Maybe 2012 wasn't a record year.

How is beef costly in resources? Where I live land that is unstable for farming or anything else is grazed. The cows keep the bushes clean and make worthless land valuable.

Talking To the Public: the Biggest Enemy To Reducing Greenhouse Emissions

slackware 3.6 Re:Hairy Reed - Gas Producer (324 comments)

We are talking about the emission of CO2, it is bad for global warming the alarmists say, yet the alarmists (like Al Gore and other climate advocates and alleged scientists and policy makers) emit more CO2 than the people they claim need to be punished for emitting CO2. That is the problem and why people suspecting them of lying to line their own pockets.

What has Al Gore done to reduce he carbon footprint? He is single handedly speeding up global warming with his gigantic mansion and private jet! He got rich of global warming and Saudi oil! When will he lead by example?

Obama Delays Decision On Keystone Pipeline Yet Again

slackware 3.6 Re:Not at all (206 comments)

High fuel prices decrease fuel consumption for poor people, rich people don't care they drive the most inefficient vehicles.
https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/best/bestworstNF.shtml
Never mind the private jets and yachts but they are important they need those thing. Or cargo ships being exempt from fuel tax, take away the free trade agreements and tax exemptions and shipping stuff from China in not profitable anymore. "Just 15 of the world's biggest ships may now emit as much pollution as all the world's 760m cars." Whats the real problem? Cars or ships? Also ships are exempt from low sulfur fuel regulation. There are 90,000 cargo ships in the world.

Peoria Mayor Sends Police To Track Down Twitter Parodist

slackware 3.6 Isn't parody protected in the US? (169 comments)

In Canada you can parody anyone. For example Justin Turdeau instead of Justin Trudeau (leader Liberal party Canada). It's funny and you can't get sued never mind have the police come after you. It's called freedom of speech.
