It's pretty tiring how often you trot out this lazy, anti-intellectual, and seemingly apathetic cop-out.

so you're really not a Libertarian here. you think we have no responsibility at all, and that someone -- the Great Nanny In The Sky -- will clean up after us.

cool beans.

just don't go calling yourself a Libertarian. we've seen that you're anything but on so many issues.

I asked for someone who understands the situation, you have shown time after time that you don't.

Tomorrow might be great for you, but you don't seem to give a shit about anyone else or other generations.

The BSG fan in me finds that headline highly amusing.

Frack! There's a fracking spill in Pennsylvania!

Rick Perry's got a better idea.

governor.state.tx.us
Quote:
WHEREAS, the state of Texas is in the midst of an exceptional drought, with some parts of the state receiving no significant rainfall for almost three months, matching rainfall deficit records dating back to the 1930s; and

WHEREAS, a combination of higher than normal temperatures, low precipitation and low relative humidity has caused an extreme fire danger over most of the State, sparking more than 8,000 wildfires which have cost several lives, engulfed more than 1.8 million acres of land and destroyed almost 400 homes, causing me to issue an ongoing disaster declaration since December of last year; and

WHEREAS, these dire conditions have caused agricultural crops to fail, lake and reservoir levels to fall and cattle and livestock to struggle under intense stress, imposing a tremendous financial and emotional toll on our land and our people; and

WHEREAS, throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer; it seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join together in prayer to humbly seek an end to this devastating drought and these dangerous wildfires;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal way of life.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto signed my name and have officially caused the Seal of State to be affixed at my Office in the City of Austin, Texas, this the 21st day of April, 2011.

RICK PERRY
Governor of Texas

So if the rain doesn't come, does that mean that those awful, awful so-called "christians" that go around proclaiming that Katrina and the Japan tsunami/earthquake were punishments will say the same thing about Texas?

Or will Texas get a pass from their jackassery?

Well, the drought in Texas hasn't drawn anything like the media attention Katrina and the tsunami did, which suggests God is less interested in making an example of them, and I'm sure Phelps et al. will take that into account.

No, they won't say the same things. It will be blamed on someone else. Probably not ENOUGH people of faith living in Texas. Too many Mexicans or illegals, cause they're prayers don't fucking count Goddamnit!!! Drove out the good people that were necessary.

Though if it does rain, thank the lord for blessing Texas.

Sun Headed Into Hibernation, Solar Studies Predicts

Earth may be headed into a mini Ice Age within a decade • The Register

So now we should create more CO2 to mitigate global cooling?

Of course this is just a model so hopefully they're wrong because food prices would go up if this occurs.

You and The Register(a bit of a joke) should actually pay attention to what the scientist are saying, rather than just read the headlines:

Quote:
"We have some interesting hints that solar activity is associated with climate, but we don't understand the association," said Dean Pesnell, project scientist for NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).

Also, even if there is a climate link, Pesnell doesn't think another grand minimum is likely to trigger a cold snap.

"With what's happening in current times—we've added considerable amounts of carbon dioxide and methane and other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere," said Pesnell, who wasn't involved in the suite of new sun studies.

"I don't think you'd see the same cooling effects today if the sun went into another Maunder Minimum-type behavior."
Quote:
According to Hill, their data suggest that the start of Solar Cycle 25 may be delayed until 2022—about two years late—or the cycle may simply not happen.
Quote:
This time, however, the rush to the poles is more of a crawl, which means we could be headed toward a very weak solar maximum in 2013—and it may delay or even prevent the start of the next solar cycle.


Taken together, the three lines of evidence strongly hint that Solar Cycle 25 may be a bust, the scientists said today during a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

But a solar lull is no cause for alarm, NSO's Hill said: "It's happened before, and life seems to go on. I'm not concerned but excited."
