The corporate oligarchy knows climate warming is baked in the atmosphere which is why they feel obliged to hoard all the wealth and power now. They also believe they can use climate change to elevate themselves more as the world becomes more poor they become more powerful by maintaining their wealth and power. They see Climate Change as an opportunity to grab power and resources. They already have plans for floating cities, communities and homes that only the super wealthy can afford that...

Human beings are literally out of control despite their pride of superiority and crappy little intellects. They are beasts lost in a feeding frenzy. Otherwise, they would not insanely prey upon one another to the point of mutual self-destruction and environmental collapse. This is the plain truth of the criminally insane human condition.

The God that Whites claim to love so much is going to show them how "superior" they're not. Unfortunately, we're going to go along with them for the ride, which could end up straight to the grave. I've NEVER seen a "superior" white person once his house has been blown down around his feet and beyond when those tornadoes try to blow his ass off the planet or when an earthquake flattens him when overpasses fall down upon his car, while he WAS driving. Not too superior looking like a bloody...

Well, I don't think it's the government that charges you for electricity, natural gas, gasoline, or any other form of energy. So, if anyone has anything to gain by lying about climate change, it's Big Oil and all of its agents and representatives.

The difference between weather and climate is a change in the probabilities. Under one set of climatic conditions the probability of a storm of a certain severity might be 5 times in 100 years. Under different climatic conditions 20 times in 100 years. But there would also be changes in other probabilities like record hot springs and summers. The bad thing is if that if the rise in CO2 is triggering this then not in hundreds of thousands of years has CO2 risen so fast. We are in a new...

Quote by Xumbrarchist: "A book is technology just like a tablet computer is technology". So why is that "wooden" book more effective in teaching children (and allowing teachers to teach more efficently) how to learn the basics in reading, writing and math skills than a tablet computer in all it's various forms? What's that old saying..."sometimes less is more"?...and "more" (in today's case, much much more) can severly curve your learning. Having more does not make you smarter or better...

Who says wooden books are more effective than computers? What percentage of teachers are REALLY GOOD? I would bet less than 10% But the effectiveness of computers was proven in 1987 and they didn't have tablets then. http://firstmonday.org/htbin/c...nterFriendly/507/428 The interesting thing about that case is that the teachers did not interfere because they did not want to be bothered with students they regarded as trouble makers. So the students didn't have to be bothered with teachers on...

They played Native Americans in the old westerns, blackened their faces and adorned little nappy wigs singing "Mammy" and other such nonsense throughout the 20's to 50's.
