Past the tipping point?

May 22, 2013

Pollutants like carbon dioxide trap heat in our atmosphere and keep it from entering space. They cause increases in temperature that are destroying our planet before our very eye....

I've wondered how it was that code pink has been so successful at interrupting the President. I don't buy into the idea that the administration “staged“ it, but I do feel there is more to the story than meets the eye.

" Can you see that a person who said that Obama has lied "zero times""

There is not a single, adult human being on Earth that has never told a lie in their entire life. Zero. None.

A normal, high functioning individual doesn't see a conspiracy in something like that, without constantly being on the lookout for the next conspiracy.

" Can you provide evidence that I see "multiple conspiracies a day"?"

I would base my assessment on the fact that if your bar is set so low, that if someone obtains a press pass to get in to disrupt a speech by the President, that you would zoom to the assumption that he was involved.

I mean the President didn't stand to gain anything by having his speech disrupted, so why would he "stage" something like that?

If you can see a conspiracy in this where the person you think orchestrated it had absolutely nothing to gain, and no conceivable motivation to carry it out, then it can't possibly be the only conspiracy you've identified today.

"Does it ever occur to you, that if you see multiple conspiracy theories a day, that the problem might be with you?"

Can you provide evidence that I see "multiple conspiracies a day"?

Can you see that a person who said that Obama has lied "zero times" might have a screw loose of his own, or at least not have a clue in the line of objective, critical thinking skills?

So are you trying to say that because someone from the media gave someone a press pass to get into an event to disrupt the President while he was talking, that it was some sort of conspiracy? That's only about two clicks back from the "weather weapon".

Does it ever occur to you, that if you see multiple conspiracy theories a day, that the problem might be with you?

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE NATIONAL DEFENSE UNIVERSITY WASHINGTON DC 20319=5066 23 MAY 2013

NDU STATEMENT ON DISTURBANCE DURING PRESIDENT’S SPEECH

The individual who continued to attempt to interrupt the President’s speech at the National Defense University was given access via the list of media attendees expected. When it was apparent this individual would not be deterred by the President’s effort to address her concerns, officials from the National Defense University staff and Base Police asked her to leave and escorted her from the venue. She has been questioned by Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall police. This speech was not open to the general public. Attendance for non-media was limited to invited guests from the National Defense University faculty, staff, and student body, along with those invited by the White House. Please address any additional questions to the White House Press Office.

Please share your news source that the code pink heckler was staged. I can't find that anywhere.

Did anyone notice that the liberals will not take my offer?

We'll give you everything you want for the next 20 years.....but if temperatures rise, you are all out of politics and can never vote again.

If you are right, we will be out of politics and never vote again.

Take the bet, loudmouths!

Hey Josh, it occurs to me why over 97% of scientists responded the way they did. Maybe President Obama threatened them with the "weather weapons", that were brought to us by the same guy that invented the "DHS bullet stockpiling" conspiracy, as well as the Sandy Hokk and Aurora mass shooting conspiracies.

Chuckle, chuckle.

Are you claiming Josh that the scientists that participated in the follow up portion of this study, were somehow paid to say they believed in anthropogenic global warming? Because you understand that when asked, 97.2% of the respondents said they did. These are people that have been studying this, in some cases for decades.

You mean kinda like these "scientists" do?

Its almost like asking those lifelong welfare dependents, and them alone, to study the welfare system and report whether its an effective program and should be continued.

At the end of the day, the only reason there is one iota of "debate" over this, is because right wing politicians take a tremendous amount of money from the carbon industry, and are eager to prostitute their positions to the highest bidder.

A similar situation also exists in our right wing, corporate media. That's the only possible explanation for the disparity between scientific, and popular opinion on this issue. Fringe scientists that represent less than one percent of overall scientific opinion are given equal time by our right wing media to appease advertisers.

Um, boobie, the study in question found 3896 peer reviewed, published papers that endorsed anthropogenic global warming, and 78 that regected it. Where did you arrive at your number? By my calculations, your about 420% low.

And this is just the studies that openly took a position. When they followed up with the 28,083 authors of these studies, they found a much higher percentage that took a postion, and of those, 97.2% supported the idea of anthropogenic global warming.

So again, the score. 3896 peer reviewed papers published over 20 years support the position I hold, and 78 support the position you hold..

Sound about right?

928 papers? Gee, what's greater boobie, 928 or 11,944?

"We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 11?944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011 matching the topics 'global climate change' or 'global warming'."

"CHayes wants us to accept climate change because A group of scientists came to a consensus."

Yeah, just a couple of them, you know like about 20,000 published climate scientists from around the world. And how many published climate scientists do you think there are on our planet erik? Millions? Tens of millions?

Jesus Christ on a cracker, how do you come up with stuff this stupid erik? It has to take a tremendous amount of work?
