What a pain for the alarmists.

Hurricane Donna was the worst , and I've been through dozens.

Cyclone Debbie has been downgraded to a category one system after crossing the north Queensland coast.

Vox has an article about it: Scientists made a detailed "roadmap" for meeting the Paris climate goals. It's eye-opening.

Net emissions from land use -- i.e., from agriculture and deforestation -- have to fall steadily to zero by 2050.

Almost every religion is fucked up and dangerous.

The ones that weren't warlike and dangerous pretty much get wiped out by the ones that are.

John Young is a goddamn serious fucking wildlife photog.  Kudos.

And good for the parrot.  Fucking humans, bringing their goddamn cats everywhere.

The first photographic and video evidence of a live individual was publicly confirmed in July 2013

After 17,000 hours in the field and 15 years of searching, wildlife photographer John Young captured several photos and a 17-second video of the bird in western Queensland.

Even among liberal dems they polled, only 55% respponded that they "believe" the majority of climate scientist are sure we are the cause of global warming.   And only 27% of the total polled believe it.

That's pretty stark.

Looking at that "data" is interesting, especially how they present their "findings", from a poll.

As is almost always the case with believers, they try to present all data as somehow supporting their belief, rather than an honest look at what they can observe.

For example
http://www.pewinternet.org/2016/10/04/the-politics-of-climate/ps_2016-10-04_politics-of-climate_1-03/

The results could be easily presented in a way that tells a different version, from the same data.

It's so obvious to a skeptic.

Rather than claim "Minority of U.S. adults see climate scientists' research and understanding in a positive light", they could be honest and state "A Majority of U.S. adults see climate scientists' research and understanding in a negative light", and displayed the data showing they lack of trust and belief in experts.

67% of those asked think climate scientist do not understand whether climate change is happening.

72% don't think climate scientist know the cause of climate change.

81% said climate scientist don't know how to address "it", with "it" not being defined, which is amusing considering the question is in regards to the previous ones. 

While 32% think research is influenced by the best evidence, 36% think it is scientists self interest that drives their beliefs.

But if you add the 27% and 26% that believe it's political or helping their industry, 89% clearly think it's not evidence that influences research findings.

Fascinating.  Of course PEW don't present their finding like this, which is ironic and humorous.

The bias is obvious.

Unless he is just a Ceremonial Mayor, his responsibilities would include being in charge the agencies responsible for security, and stopping terrorists before they attack and kill people.  You fucking moron.

Science / Re: Direct Down Wind Faster Than The Wind
It also exemplifies bias, since if you already know something can't be true, no amount of evidence will sway you.  This is a universal problem of most of mankind.

Science / Re: Direct Down Wind Faster Than The Wind
One thing most of us learned from the very long topic, and the entire experience, is that actually building a craft and measuring it doing something, for some people, is not evidence of it really doing something.  Because when just anyone can decide what is evidence, there is no hope for science.

Science / Re: Direct Down Wind Faster Than The Wind
Oh snap!

I'm not defending Trump or Trump jr, they might be just as fucked up as any other person, but to be outraged over quoting what a Mayor actually said, rather than be poutraged over the fact that this terrorist shit is now said to be normal, to expect it, any time, especially when you least expect it, that is just bullshit.

You got your priorities fucke up people.  And not being able to recognize the actual problem is a serious failing of a leader, or any asshole on the internet who repeats the same insipid bullshit.
22
That's the real problem.

Instead of describing the goddamn problem, a leader should be figuring out how to solve the goddamn problem.  Anyone can just describe a fucked up situation, or tell everyone to "be ready for the unexpected".  But if you just told everyone to expect to be attacked by radical religious nutjobs who want to kill and harm them, then it's no longer unexpected.

In fact, it's now expected, at any time.  Anywhere.

Jesus fuck

and this a leader of a city?

Fuck that
23
Yeah. What he hould have said
Bullshit.  Of course you don't have any idea what he should say, or what any leader of the free world should say or do.
25
And hey, while your at it, explain to little Billy how you want to let millions of the same aassholes who kill and maim people regularly, into your city, and offer them all the benefits of civilization.  If he objects, just explain you can't tell which Muslim will try to kill you at the most unexpected time, and it would be wrong to let all the innocent good ones suffer just because some of them want to kill everyone you love.  And destroy all you hold dear.

At the most unexpected moment.















Seriously.

Jesus fucking christ
