Sorry for my scientific faux pas though.

Hmm, I was under the impression that cosmologists cared less about Earth specifically and more about the universe generally. I could be wrong though, so I'll retract point #1. :p:

There is also stuff like this. Fyi, I'm not a "denier"—just pointing out that parties on both sides of the debate can be biased and it's not as much of a black-and-white issue as it's usually made out to be.

lol you must have hawk eyes to catch that mistake/typo.

They study the atmospheres of other planets which probably helps understand the atmosphere of our own. My logic behind it. Understanding the effects CO2 has on another planet would help us understand the effects it'd have on ours.

Well

Venus is your example

Factors like gravity, solar winds, carbon based life forms, magnetic fields... will complicate the comparison

Makes sense, although I can't say I've ever heard of a cosmologist publishing a paper on climate change.

DwnWthVwls 04-01-2017 12:28 PM

Or we can just study the effects on Earth much easier... what experiments do you think they are doing on other atmospheres? I don't see how that would be useful considering the infinitely greater abundance of research we've already done on Earth. We have enough information to make pretty good models, and they are only getting better.

You have to admire them, don't you? I always said the man who can't laugh at himself can't laugh at anything. That's why I spend ten minutes every morning in front of a mirror laughing. (Well, that and the fact that I'm a skinny, glasses-wearing, ugly **** with receding hair and just one step ahead of the grave...)

No, but Neil Degrasse Tyson was a cosmologist. I mean, he hasn't made any notable discoveries or anything but still. And Bill Nye was a rocket scientist. They are both huge talking heads for climate change. That's not the same though.

I just pictured them as literal huge talking heads. Wait a minute, Bill Nye was a literal huge talking head that said "science rules"! They should get him to say "Run The Jewels" for a music video. Or make him a cat and have him say "Meow the Jewels". Goddammit somebody get me EL-P and Killer Mike on the phone I got ideas!

Wait, what were we talking about? Oh, yeah, Donald Trump and he did things. I guess he passed a law that lets companies like google sell our search history. What I've been hearing. A highly bull**** law if true. But I don't care too much. Can't really completely blame this on him because these are the type of internet laws being put forth by Obama too. And I'm sure they'd exist with Hillary or Romney or McCain all the same.

Yeah, this was going to be included within the TPP as well as other things related to the internet. So I was glad when he pulled us out of it but it doesn't matter if crap like this still gets passed.

It just becomes monotonous to continually comment on Trump. It's like watching a hurricane and wondering if it's going to create damage. It's inevitable.

Don't get your panties in a twist so quickly. I've lost count of the amount of times that you've done the exact same thing (though much worse) in threads that you had no part in. I'm just adding extra commentary. This is a public forum isn't it?

The majority of the times you've come in this thread lately was only to bitch about it though. Extra commentary is whatever I don't care but if you don't care about the topic and it's such a pain in the butt to you then it doesn't make sense to roll through.

I never said it was a pain in the butt. I'm just saying it's funny that you guys talk about this stuff as if you didn't know it was going to happen. "Oh the horror, oh the humanity!"

That's over simplifying it.

There are other discussions that end up cropping up that are politics related in this thread on different issues and I'm fine with that.

Ki, ya, a lot of us predicted doom and gloom but none of us could articulate exactly how it was going to play out. Now that we're getting the day to day, play by play, we're just reacting to the actual details of the doom and gloom.

Step aside if you're not detail oriented.

I was probably told about this by my friend, but I forgot about it. I was against TPP because i feel as though it would completely move us away from home made products. We don't make **** anymore. We have them make the **** for us.

But yeah, it's probably one of many things they were going to sneak in with TPP so it wouldn't get as much attention. And as scary is the bill may sound it's probably going to be used mainly for advertising reasons.

Lisnaholic 04-03-2017 03:11 PM

One thing that keeps this thread so active is that with Trump, the scandals are just queueing up to be mentioned. Not the most dramatic, but certainly one that highlights his arrogance and hypocrisy is the one about his and Obama's downtime.

Trump famously criticized Obama's visits to the golf course and promised that he (Trump) would work harder if elected. But what's the score card so far?
Obama's golf games after 72 days in office: 0
Trump's ditto: 14

Other stats I've seen are that Trump has spent about one-third of his days in office, not in office but elsewhere - and every time it's to a Trump-owned club or hotel, that's free publicity for some Trump enterprise. Free to his businesses, that is, because the American tax-payer is footing the bill. Did anyone read about how Mar-a-Lago has doubled its membership fees since Trump took office? Isn't it galling that M-a-L is thriving because of publicity provided at public expense? Trump has called the place "the Winter White House," as if giving it a kind of quasi-official status, while the actual official weekend escape house, Camp David, stands empty. Does Trump worry that he is thus doubling up expenses for an out-of-town weekend? Presumably not because once again, the tax-payer is paying for it.

I understand that Ki feels over-exposed to all this anti-Trump rhetoric, but how else to draw attention to Trump's seemingly endless abuses of his position? I think it's important that journalists maintain their sense of outrage in the face of conduct which is, imo, outrageous:-

From 22 March this year:- Donald Trump: America's Marie Antoinette (opinion) - CNN.com

And from today:-

EDIT: Ooops should have watched that video before posting Lisn.

Speaking of Melania, it's costing the US taxpayers $136,500 a day to protect her and Baron so that they can live in NYC instead of The White House. And that cost goes up to well over $300,000 a day when daddy visits.

$136.5K a day is about $50 million a year.

We signed up for footing the bill for the first family to live in the White House.
The extra $50 million should be coming out of Trump's pockets don't you think?

I thought Trump wasn't taking a salary and was flipping the bill for his own personal security (which also brought objections by anti-Trumpsters). TBH IDK

What is the play by play on that one, Deep Throat?

I don't think she plans to stay in Trump Tower for a year though. She is only staying there til the end of Baron's school year so that she doesn't have to rip him out of school which is understandable.
