Black IT Pros On (Lack Of) Racial Diversity In Tech

spud_boy_65986534 Removing /. from my bookmarks... (459 comments)

I can't read this blog anymore. Every friggin' day there's story after story promoting one politically correct, leftist canard after another: racial bias, gender bias, global climate apocalypse, gender pay gaps, net neutrality (turn the internet into another utility--hey, what could go wrong with that. /s) I'm moving on. Slashdot sucks. Go peddle your propaganda to the remaining uneducated fools that choose to stay here. . .

Study: Past Climate Change Was Caused by Ocean, Not Just the Atmosphere

spud_boy_65986534 Re:In Related News (185 comments)

Wow. 0.1C of warming in 30 years. That's statistically indistinguishable from 0. Even the IPCC would admit that; that's why they're in a panic trying to explain "the pause."

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

spud_boy_65986534 Re:as the birds go (610 comments)

"leave this place as somewhere to discuss the technology on it's own merits."

How do you discuss the technology on its own merits when those claiming superiority of a given technology rely on a bunch of soft metrics and "social costs" which are highly debatable? My electricity bill in CA is 3X the national average because of energy policies PUT IN PLACE BY POLITICIANS. California wants to fight climate change. How does that make any sense when China can freely bring on dozens of new coal plants every month? Some of us are trying to figure out how to put our kids through college while policies PUT IN PLACE BY POLITICIANS are costing us thousands of dollars a year in higher energy costs.

Direct Sales OK Baked Into Nevada's $1.3 Billion Incentive Deal With Tesla

spud_boy_65986534 So, tax cuts... (149 comments)

to attract specific companies like Tesla provide benefits to the economy on a ratio of something like 80:1, but if a political party (let's say the GOP) proposed general tax cuts that apply to everyone, it would be mocked and pilloried by the commie libs who post here. Why?

Exactly what I was going to say. Can't get funding to study the mating habits of the Tsetse fly? Just claim that "climate change" will wipe out the poor creature IF WE DON'T ACT NOW!!!!

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

spud_boy_65986534 Leo Tolstoy (427 comments)

"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth, if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

Climate Damage 'Irreversible' According Leaked Climate Report

spud_boy_65986534 They're getting desperate... (708 comments)

...as their climate models have failed spectacularly at predicting future warming. Now we're supposed to believe the "missing heat" is hiding at the bottom of the Atlantic. CO2 is already at saturation levels as a GHG; it does not necessarily follow AT ALL that more human CO2 emissions will warm the planet. CAGW is, and always has been, about getting the uninformed to reduce consumption via confiscatory pricing and/or taxation of fossil-fuel based energy.
