right wing 3/30/2014 11:17:10 AM Report

Big Bro

Let me sum up the IPCC report for you...It's still our fault.

I'll guess that they are ramping it up though....lets see 1990 "could be our fault"....(nobody bites, nobody pays)...1995, "strongly suggest it's our fault" (nobody bites, nobody pays").... 2001 "likely our fault", wording getting stronger, (nobody bites, nobody pays)....2007, "very likely our fault", (still nobody bites, nobody pays)...Present day..."extremely likely our fault", "debate is over", "everybody agrees", media has all but wandered off, climate change jokes in the line ups, (nobody bites, nobody pays).....
Dropping the "man driven" from their mission statement all the while still attempting to shove down the throats of the rest of the thinking world that climate change is primarily the fault of man kind is just not working, is it.
The funding is starting to be cut in half and as the big $$$$ dries up watch how quickly the "researchers" move onto to the next golden cow.

It is encouraging the the IPCC has admitted the pause in the rise of surface air temperatures is real. They are getting ready to fade into the past as is evident by their predictions now being pushed another decade or more down the road.
I guess it's a tad embarrassing when they stated this so long ago and the predicted times frames have arrived and gone.
Personally I'm keeping an eye on Al Gore's ocean front properties, when he starts selling I'll get my measuring stick out.

As for your second link....really ? some obscure enviro-wacko blog....you can do better than that...I would be willing to give you some "google" lessons, after all I am the proclaimed site expert.

Well that's great.
Now all they (we) have to get past is the fact that the wind farms take up huge amounts of land, it is intermittent and especially in the summer months when production is most needed.
Storing large quantities of the energy created has huge hurdles and they do apparently kill birds and bats...which I don't really care about but apparently they do.
All in all an applause for Texas...now lets just cover our entire Lake Superior escarpment with those behemoth creatures and shut all that other useless energy down.
Of course we do have that problem with the cost of energy in Ontario turning into a sky rocket in flight since we got all fuzzy wuzzy and green...but hey who cares.

You realize that men were also punished by this same court right ? The CS Monitor just decided to put "Caning Women" in the headline to appeal to guys like you.

And I'm sure you know that caning as a punishment dates from the British colonial days in both Malaysia and Singapore, predating any Islamic influence.

By the way, my wife and 15 other women were protected by Muslim men during their entire month-long African trip. Protection from so-called "Christian" Militia, who like to kidnap, rape and brutalize women.

Apparently, the organizers over there like to use 'Muzzies" because they are more reliable and won't take bribes.

statusquo 3/30/2014 6:12:21 PM Report

Always,,

One of the leading countries in wind power energy is Denmark.

Denmark with a smaller population than Ontario has over 6,000 wind turbines that produce electricity equal to about 20% in theory , and that only under perfect conditions.
However, no conventional power plant has been shut down and that is due to the unreliability and unpredictability of wind power. Not enough or too much wind. Conventional power plants must be kept running at full capacity to compensate for demand fluctuations.
You cannot simply turn off a powerplant as the need arises.
So when the wind turbines are working perfectly, due to the small window of opportunity they have, depending on wind conditions the excess power is sold at a loss to neighbouring countries.

Denmark's massive investment is in reality contributing only about 4% of that nation's total demand, on average.
The only solution, as hard as it is to comprehend is nuclear power.
The worst nuclear disaster was in Chernobyl, and although people died and suffered chronic , long term illnesses, compared to Oil and coal, the human and environmental damage was miniscule in the grand scheme of things.

Bobby Nerves 3/30/2014 6:32:35 PM Report

Status, the latest follow up with Chernobyl was a bit of a surprise for the scientific world, the trees which suffered full discharge and highest level of contamination, do not decay as fast as the trees that did not receive radiation or do not decay at all.

Botanic is far complicated than Medicine as it's a much larger field of science. And in some countries, known to me, the scientific community did some experimentation with veggies and fruits, mostly with fruits like tomatoes, in order to improve size and decay. The advantage or disadvantage with plants is that they transmit/inherit the decease invariably and that's the reason why hybrids help in the fight of maintaining the species.

the problem is that with a delay decay or no decay, the natural cycle will never complete.

Jim,

The canings,the beheadings, the mutilations, the mass executions, the genital mutilations of girls that are happening in Muslim countries may indeed not be Islamic doctrine and yet one has to wonder why the ruling Mullahs in most of these countries don't actually do something to bring these nations into a more civil and democratic era.
The insistence of Islamic leaders to perpetuate to treat minorities and especially women as second class citizens, based on an archaic, herding culture, is something I cannot accept.
Islam is after all almost entirely plagiarized from Jewish myth...i.e the Tora and the Bible, and in turn the Old Testament is plagiarized from Egyptian sun worshipping paganism.
In my opinion it is all superstitious crap and I refuse to take any of it seriously. These cults have done more harm and caused more suffering in the world due to ignorance and blind reliance on a super being that does not exist.

This evenings news on CTV had Wynne going for a legal opinion on Hudak and his Ahole buddy Fideli's accusations of Wynne masterminding the destruction of material relating to the gas plants. It is one thing to do this in the house where they are protected but these morons have made these claims publically and posted them on their website. The NDP stated that it was reprehensible to stir the pot with claims that can't be substantiated.

I could not disagree with your post as far as man, under a cloak of religion, causing a lot of misery and despair in this world.

As far as this part of your post:

"a super being that does not exist"

Your first three words are very telling of a human definition driven by either a belief or disbelief in one simple question...what created "us", including this planet, our solar system, the universe etc.

I will ask just one simple question of you tonight.
I know you are an atheist so what is your definition of a "a super being" (your words) in the idealistic realm of what you deny exists.

I am hoping you will answer this question in the manner it is being asked...seriously.

I am also wondering if you would be interested in doing an on site debate over whatever time is takes, and whenever is convenient for either party, as to whether there is intelligent design/purpose/creation versus are we are just here by sheer evolution/chemical interaction/chance...in other words no intelligence or creation behind our existence.
The format could be simple, once the debate is open a question by either party could be posted and then answered within a time frame that could take a day, two days, three days.....
As you know I am a believer in intelligence behind our existence and I will not use any portion of the bible in our debate.

Now I am old and I really do not want to look out my windows and see windturbine blades flashing in the sunlight or the red beacons flashing away all night, it may turn you on but it does not me. I choose to live well away from big towns and cities so I did not have to have a view of those things but the "green people" (you) want to invade my space. So why do you think we complain. It has been proven that the frequency of rpm of the blades can harm people, plus the harmonics,plus the devaluaton of property near these sites. Then there is the annimal and bird casualities, plus the one thing all eniromental people forget, namely the carbon footprint to produce and manufacture the things. I know you will say well its going to be based over a number of years, but it is still there and then there is the decommisioning after the useful life is up. There are ways to fire generating stations beside coal and oil, one of the largest in the UK is going to woodpellet from WAWA. That place used 4 train loads of coal a day and one of the lowest co2 and particulate emmissions in the EU. Our MNR allows thousands of hectares of forest to burn every year but you never hear about the smoke from those fires unless it requires FN evacuations. Perhaps you might like to turn your attention to them as well as the people who are against windfarms...

Pink Peony: I'm not going to hold my breath! The ones that insist on using a "low blow" consider that a reasoned argument IMO.

This will be like Canada Reads. I will be tuned in big time. I don't even know what I think. Your diverse opinions will be appreciated.
