  1. Today
  2. Carbon cycle and the ocean

    Thanks for being a good sport about my jabs on the website.  Not meaning to be personal, but it makes for some good theatre while we actually DO touch on some critical issues.

    One of our business relationships is with an Irish company that makes water treatment filtration equipment for municipal and industrial water and sewage treatment.   They have shown some fantastic numbers in demonstrations and in service, but I began to notice that each time they knocked those out of the ballpark, the same filtration medium was involved.  So, I brought that up and they were nice enough to introduce me to the owner of the company that developed said media.   His credentials in the world of water - both fresh and oceanic - would fill a small book.  His payback to the world is trying to get the message out about something that really IS a major concern.  You can find Howard's website at:   www.goesfoundation.com    Reality is: a lot of "climate science" is driven by the want of funding for a particular agenda.  It is pretty hard for a legitimate scientist to make his or her point against the rather large momentum of "CO2 all bad, xxxxxx all good (because I get paid for xxxxx).   Please try to keep an open mind as I am saying this out of genuine concern, not some sort of political agenda.

    re: transportation stuff:   I am very much IN that business.  When I walk into my former JV partners, now largest client, we are designing, building and installing EV charging stations.   I am hardly on the "other" side of that issue.   Mining of Lithium and Cobalt is genuinely a nasty business and an EV uses literally THOUSANDS of the same little cells used elsewhere.  There is not enough Lithium known or forecast to exist to put even a tiny dent in the storage capacity needed to electrify any significant amount of transportation.

    see you back in the bull ring.

  4. SCOTUS: Abortion is none of our business, and so we revert the issue back to the states.

    The Left:  hOw dARe YoU!!!

      Same SCOTUS. 

      A State can't restrict a person's ability to carry a concealed weapon on their person. 

      BUT the state Can force a rape victim to carry their rapists baby to term. OR they can ban contraception that allows fertilization but not implantation. 

      It's insanity.  

  5. Mark it down, Scotus has become unfettered.  June 23 they ruled that the New York gun law was unconstitutional. Then they overturned Roe.  Today they ruled a coach can pray at a high school football game.  Conservatives can start celebrating now!

  6. I love the way you get me high!

      If they make getting or giving an abortion a felony, they certainly are forcing a rape victim to have the child. 

      When was not getting the vaccine ever criminalized?

      1)They didn’t  make abortions illegal.  They said it should be up to each State.  Don’t like the State laws?  Vote in some change, that’s democracy.

      2) Most rape victims don’t get pregnant.  Why must you lefties go after a subset of a subset of a subset to support your idiotic positions?  What about all women, what’s best for 100% of women?

       

    4. Boges

      Boges

      The hypocrisy of the court is that they stepped in a few days earlier saying that New York couldn't restrict concealed weapons. So the national rights of a gun-owner supersede that of a woman who doesn't want to be pregnant. 

      Also most abortions aren't late-term. Doesn't stop Pro-lifers to use that as justification for calling it murder. 

  9. Did Trudeau just ban grocery plastic bags?  In retaliation, I’m officially banning ridiculous socks from Canada.  
    Also, I’m banning that condescending way Trudeau talks when he thinks he’s in a teachable moment mode.  You’ve been warned!!

      You would have a point if the rider was brand new, but these guys practice riot control all the time, and charging through a crowd of people this is going to happen. The rider knew that going into this. But then again she posed a threat to National security and needed to be dealt with. It was like using a sledgehammer to beat in a small nail.

  14. OBAMA'S PREPPING!

     

     

    The select board approved a request for a 2,500-gallon commercial propane tank for 79 Turkeyland Cove Road in Katama — owned by former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
    “We’ve never had a private propane tank come to us,” said select board member Arthur Smadbeck, with select board member Michael Donaroma noting a private-residence propane tank is typically a fraction of the quantity being requested.

      In case anyone doesn't know what this is about, its the Belmont Stakes, set to occur on Saturday June 11.  The Belmont is the third in the triple crown of horse racing.  Rich Strike was a last minute substitution in the Kentucky Derby, and given 80:1 odds.  He stayed near last place for 3/4 of the race, then run through the field and chased down the leader to take the win.  People are still talking about this because it was impossible.  Check it out on youtube.

  19. De-fund the police enthusiasts - get ready for this:

     

    Seattle police memo shows defunded force stopped investigating new adult sexual assaults this year

    Just three years ago, the unit had 12 skilled detectives, but at the time the memo was written, there are only four remaining.

      It would be interesting to see the vote turnout vs expected for each party to test your theory, Boges.

      I wanted to vote against Ford, but there was no other name on the ballot Iwas willing to attest to. So I stayed home.

  21. Not only was there an armed guard at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, but the police gathered outside while the shooter was able to kill students at will. 

    Good guys with guns indeed.

    Maybe if they just armed the teachers with military style assault rifles, this would never happen. 🙄

      It's all good until you need them, then all we hear is the incessant screams and whines about how they were not there to do their job. Maybe you should have a choice on where your tax dollars go, it would sure take a load of the shortfalls police have right now, they just don't respond to your 911 calls. or your Karen calls about the neighbor. You're on your own Skippy, brilliant choice by the way. 

  22. It's pretty obvious that Biden is going to be used as a scapegoat and quickly replaced by Harris when the outrage boils over.  Who will be pulling her strings?  Same person.

      This references the fact that petroleum etc is easily sequesterable, but electricity is not.

      Energy is security. Will be more and more important in the future.

      That’s why the US has a “Strategic Petroleum Reserve”.

      Meanwhile you people go piss around with your little batteries. See how far you get, when the lights finally go out.

       

    3. Boges

      Honestly if the power goes out. My forms of transportation will be the least of my worries. 

      This line of reasoning is a red herring. Your computer won't work either when the lights go out.

      Also, Gasoline just doesn't come from the ground. Crude Oil does and requires labour intensive refining. The supply of Gasoline will quickly dry up if the tankers stop coming.  

      The real solution to having electricity available after civilization collapses is expanded use of Solar and wind power. If every room had a solar panel, you could be completely self sufficient. 

  24. Almost everything these days reminds me of that fairy tale the emperor's new clothes. 

    I mean, let's face it, Joe Biden is the emperor in that story.

    But here's another one.

    The social media service Tik Tok is well known as the home of the wacky woke nutcases. 

    But here's a young woman speaking sanity to the Idiocracy.

    She's so out of place with her rational dead-on observations of the societal naked emperor I expect her to get censored, canceled or worse.

      Many of her comparisons are false equivalencies. 

      Many Socialist countries also have 18 as a drinking age. 19 to drink here. 

      Which Illegals are voting in "their" elections? 

      Who says illiterate gangbangers are welcome? 

      How is border security and Healthcare comparable. The US already pays more than most countries for Healthcare because private interests jack up the price. 

      She doesn't grasp the difference between Gender and Sex. 

      Which socialist countries are about to collapse? 

      Regarding Criminals, the US has, one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. Throwing people in jail doesn't fix the problem. 

      And the criminal justice system is racist if it disproportionally throws minorities in jail for simple drug crime. 

      The screed is just sloganeering and doesn't really hold up to scrutiny.

      I think you're trying to bait me into wasting an afternoon debunking each little bit of misrepresented silliness. It's not necessary. All I have to do is post the actual comments again so anybody who cares can see what she actually said.

      I repeat, what is "white heritage"?

    3. Boges

      Boges

      Black Heritage comes from the history of oppression. WASPS really don't have that. 

      FTR, I oppose any racial group thinking their skin colour is something that needs to be preserved. 

      Interracial marriages are something that should be embraced. It improves future generations genes. 

    4. Army Guy

      Slavery was not limited to one skin color, white Christians were also taken as slaves by the millions and slavery is still alive and well today, only we call it something else like child/ women trafficking.

    4. Boges

      Boges

      Yes it's all Biden, not the whole interest of all of NATO. Note that Germany, Poland, the UK AND Canada are all squarely behind Ukraine in defending their sovereignty. 

      But but but Biden! 

      This is a proxy war. The US can't engage Russia directly so they're supporting Ukraine. Same thing happened in Afghanistan, Korea and Vietnam.
