    Science might not always be completely right but politicians can always be completely wrong. Que'No?!
    Which is why CC's biggest mistake was to allow the Democrats to hijack the issue.

Technical advances often lead to products becoming more affordable. All the innovation creates jobs and money for the people to be able to buy the products. It's a self sustaining cycle. Is it perfect? Of course not. America's Capitalism is based on people getting off their ass and contributing to the process. It's what made America great. Love it or leave it, but don't F with it IMO.


    There is another possibility. An old film reminded me of it. The film The Man Who Fell To Earth. It looked at a world that had become unaffected by innovation. The world just quit buying.
    Like said. an old movie so maybe the point I remember wasn't the point. It's still worth looking at. If its true we will burn out to buying I might be one of the first victims. Not total buyer fatigue but I can see that happening.

    I agree. At some point folks just call it 'good enough' and stop chasing the rainbow.

    I predict there will be no solution to MMCC, we will be left with all fossil fuels gone and the atmosphere full of greenhouse gases - and no energy left for any counter measures. We are hosed.

    It didn't have a choice. Dems are free to say what they want, as are Reps. And money talks.

    MMCC is just another divide and conquer issue in the middle, which happens to be where the truth lies.

    The entire US could be 10C colder and the rest of Earth 0.2C warmer, global warming would still be true.
    The article illustrates yet another example of the deceit that the CC folks and the left rely on on to make their case. Just like immigration control = racism, enforcing the laws = racism etc.

    Lies, in short. The entire leftward movement is based on lies that are being laid bare in short order. You simply went too far, dreamed too big. You were having your way pretty effectively for quite some time there...but got way too greedy. Too impatient. Now it's all collapsing.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    What?? You are reading what you want to read based on your bias. That article was a puff piece with zero science.

    I don't think it's the Guru (unless I'm thinking of a different self proclaimed guru). Did he ever venture to ARP?

    Not convinced he's not a reincarnation of another poster either. For now, I'll just take him at his word or lack thereof.

    Certainly wasn't the same flavor as The GooRoo when the thread started, then there were cracks, and as the thread de-evolved, The Guroo came to light.
