    Everything that you hate can be literally ****. GWB and Obama were both literally ****. Climate deniers as well as these scientists who apparently have no answers, literally ****.

    He bought a 200 year old house, it takes time to turn that around. In either case it has nothing to do with science.
    That house wasn't built with the power consumption of a small town. It was added, however.

    That's a mighty dry field next to your house. It would be a shame if someone accidentally set it on fire.

    Yeah, no.

    Global climate change is not fake, its not a scam, its not a scare-tactic. Its real. The weight of the evidence is clearly in favor of the warming hypothesis.

    But its also not unassailable, and of course what to do about is and always will be an open question.

    I never said climate change was fake. It's real. But what was is also real is people scamming off of it to make money.

    What to do about it? Not much you, I or anyone can do. If recent climate change is indeed man made...it's too late...We are at the point of no return. Cutting emissions (assuming this is the cause) worldwide to near zero will never happen.

    I don't know if that's true. Its true that "America is not the world," as L'il Marco said during one of the debates. But that just means we can't do everything. Not that we can't do anything.

    It was published elsewhere besides daily caller. If that story isn't true, feel free to prove it wrong.

    Some study I read a while back suggested that if we were able to flip a switch and reduce emissions to zero right now, that it would take 1000 years for things to return back to normal...whatever normal means.

    Knowing that will never happen...and if that study is correct...I think it's safe to assume that it is irreversible.

    Why is it always literally ****. Why not literally Himmler? Literally Dr. Mengele?

    Avery Brewing in CO has/had a line of beers they call their "Dictator Series." I've had the Maharaja Imperial IPA. I wondered why they didn't have a **** Hefeweizen or Stalin Stout.

    Clearly you were not paying attention to the Republican Platform.

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Yeah Alex Jones isn't real either.

    Another rebuttal. This one is right up Stevens alley:

    https://www.ft.com/content/e144719e-0dcb-11e5-aa7b-00144feabdc0

    Yeah, that is up my alley, particularly the last paragraph.

    However, for what it's worth, he's wrong about setting of the discount rate to reflect uncertainty. It's not the discount rate that reflects uncertainty, but rather the expected probability of the range of outcomes.

    What then does the discount rate reflect?

    I just read it. I don't see where it says anything at odds with what I said.

    In all fairness he did not cast a vote for Orange Julius Caesar so I don't think he is ok with it.
