Iranian Crackdown Goes Global

toddhisattva Re:Right Now (313 comments)

If America is relatively inactive in the world, America is bashed for being isolationist.

If America is relatively active in the world, America is bashed for being interventionist.

It's the formula of the Blame America First crowd.

Scientific Journal Nature Finds Nothing Notable In CRU Leak

toddhisattva Halliburton! (736 comments)

Just imagine if Halliburton employees had sent similar emails w.r.t. their work.

It would be taken as proof that Shape-Changing Lizards had caused the 9/11 hoax!

Climatic Research Unit Hacked, Files Leaked

toddhisattva DMCA (882 comments)

Surely, once the liars file a DMCA request to hide their fraud, the Slashdot crowd will turn on them?

Proprietary science, closed source software, and legal threats....

This work was never *meant* to be repeated.

This work is not science.

Maldives Government Holds Undersea Cabinet Meeting

toddhisattva Re:CO2 cutbacks cannot stop climate change (271 comments)

No there isn't an ideal anything. That being the case what the fuck is this whole argument about?

Creationism.

The World was created perfect and Mankind has debased it.

The Gods are angry and will punish Mankind with a world-wide flood.

It is sad that soi-disant "scientists" have become religious nutjobs, but there you have it.

Cite: Swedenborg.

Energy Secretary Chu Endorses "Clean Coal"

toddhisattva Mods Need Crack (464 comments)

Something so full of idiocy gets a 5?

So while we should be adapting our infrastructure to support more renewable resources (solar, I am looking at you), we cannot afford to forget that it is nuclear power that promises us the quickest (and cleanest) way to combat our oil dependency. Furthermore, as far as I am concerned, burning any petroleum-derived products for electricity generation borders on the criminal

The United States of America, under the leadership of President George W. Bush, cut the percentage of electricity generated from petroleum by half.

From ~3% to ~1.5%. You see, almost nobody burns petroleum for electricity, it is too valuable as a transportation fuel.

It is sad that people so full of shit post. It is awful that they get positive moderation.

It is a goddamn crime they are allowed to vote.

Large Ice Shelf Expected To Break From Antarctica

toddhisattva Re:What's in a Name (278 comments)

It is called "Climate Change" so they can't be wrong.

Because if one thing is certain it is that climates change. It's what climates do.

It relieves them of having to make any testable predictions whatsoever.

It relieves them of any claim to be scientists, too.

Senator Proposes Nonprofit Status For Newspapers

toddhisattva Re:What a good idea (426 comments)

The 'chicken-or-the-egg' argument can deal with which came first: a lack of education on the part of the viewers or the coercion of viewers by media moguls.

The reporters lack education. That they are lazy and stupid only compounds the errors.

Battlestar Galactica Hosted At the UN

toddhisattva Obama Hates the Constitution (252 comments)

Obama will do the same thing, when it suits him or what he wants and believes.

Obama has violated the Constitution, even before he was in office. Senator Hillary Clinton can not serve as a cabinet Secretary because the emoluments of that office were increased while she was Senator.

The "Saxby Fix" is sad re-imagining of the Constitution. The Constitution says,

No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time;

It doesn't say "but you get a Mulligan if you reduce the pay."

The Constitution says what it says. President Obama violated the Constitution before he was in office.

James Hansen received Soros money?

toddhisattva toddhisattva writes  |  more than 6 years ago

toddhisattva (127032) writes "Mister Gasoline, I would like to introduce you to Mister Match:

The Soros Threat To Democracy ...James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely "NASA whistleblower" standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros' Open Society Institute , which gave him "legal and media advice"?

That's right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros' flagship "philanthropy," by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI's "politicization of science" program.
