so you agree with the 95% of STEM scientists that concluded global warming is indeed a very bad thing.

Re: President Trump

Wil,

You're not STEM are you? I'd guess Business Administration or Econ.

This is not true and has been debunked repeatedly. Please stop lying.

More people die from cold than heat, so it is not a "very bad thing".



Please stop using misleading stats and attributing false context to these scientists.

That said - climate science has become a religion. Almost as far away from STEM as gender studies.

As for the rest, it may be more controversial in this case but it's standard for posters to have to remain silent about some views or face mod action. I'm not remotely insisting you agree with me.
chezlaw for real if you were actually a ****ing liberal your view on this would be 100% flipped but lol

This isn't what you said though, you said 95% of STEM scientists agreed about global warming. That is clearly wrong and has been debunked.

Re: President Trump

You guys had already moved on from denying warming, past denying human causes and it not being a big deal and were headed for it costing too much to do anything about and clouding the atmosphere with something to block sunlight. (See the 5 stages of domer)

But, I guess Trump, the scientific genius, has emboldened you all to go back to calling it fake news.

97% of me agrees that a grand jury is frightening. I'd be wetting the bed.


Oops, did I say wetting the bed... ha ha ha. Maybe I need a vacation.

I believe the actual statistic is 95% of climate scientists agree. Or something along those lines.

I think that will be more problematic but it still wont be me (or the others) forcing anyone to agree on anything - expression of some views will still get timeouts and that includes your one about using force.
So, just to be clear, anyone objecting to a trans male to female being a female is under threat of ban?

Is that correct?

Re: President Trump

today I learned science is done by consensus

let me travel back in time and tell Eisenstein, Maxwell and Kepler that they need to get consensus for their ideas

The cucks are people like you who would rather let corporations profit from side effects and leave you inevitably with the bill to clean it up. muh regulations! Eat up more of that corporate propoganda, cuck-a-doodle-doo!

You're so upset about your ban you still can't see the obvious point that it's not acceptable to advocate assaulting people.
I don't disparage minorities, I never had. I do blame them for not overcoming prejudice. It's easy to overcome - ignore it. It's a choice. Jewish people have been hated for how many centuries now? They are the most successful group of people on the planet. Do you think that's just some sort of weird coincidence?

I've never been bullied in my life. If someone has an issue with me I just whoop his ass in the street. That shuts people up pretty quickly.

95% of STEM scientist did not agree with that at all. Pretty much everyone agrees the world is going through a warming phase. That is not a question. The question is what impact does carbon have on it and what should we do about it.

If we turned off every power plant on the planet right now, would that be a net negative or a net positive on human beings? We obviously know that answer, it's a catastrophic negative. We also can't limit other countries like India from their energy needs, as their countries can only grow as much as their ability to provide that energy.

So no, I don't agree with you at all that global warming is a "very bad thing". It happens, it has happened in the past, and will happen again in the future. We must decide whether curbing carbon emissions will help that and if it's worth the tradeoff. We are no where in the same universe in agreement of this.

I couldn't stand the people in Comp Sci. That being said, I can't stand the people in Finance, either.

It pays good, though.

It's either accept what you believe, or else. There is nothing to discuss, we must start the conversation with acceptance in every way.

This is akin to the gay marriage issue. I completely support gay marriage and have supported homosexual rights my entire adult life. The government also supports it. That being said, I also see how religious people do not recognize it and do not accept it. I can accept that they do not accept it.

That is the difference between you and me. You feel the need to force people to believe in the things you do under threat. No one needs to believe in the things I do, especially so under threat.

Who, really, is the intolerant one here?
