Do the killbots have a preset kill limit? Knowing their weakness, can I send wave after wave of my own men at them until they reach their limit and shut down?

They are disposable?!

Reduce, reuse, and recycle!

I stepped out to the store for a moment, Okay? It sounds like you took some sort of red pill on housing since #610.

Straw bale construction = vermin. With any luck you'll get Badgers.

Think about cob construction for walls. With generous roof overhangs.

First floor: rammed earth; 2nd floor hardwood with area rugs (no shoes); 3rd floor (cupola/observatory) shag carpet that runs up the walls.

Overhead, you want a hi-tech material like ETFE in pillows inflated with argon or dynamically inflated for light shutters.

What is ETFE » Domerama

On to concrete: aircrete is cement mixed into water and Dawn dishwashing soap at 200:1.

Heed the lessons hard lessons of Drop City and the Red Rockers.

Steve Baer's Zomeworks is still around. Zomes are different than domes.

Any questions?

I do not even know where to start. Aircrete looks awesome, but it seems like most of the videos show people that do not have any idea what they are doing.

Here is why all this talk of climate change consensus is moot.

Remember Climategate ?

You know, where the scientists conspired to align and adjust their findings to reach a preconceived conclusion.


Well...

Here we go again...


Climate Alarmists Caught Faking Sea Level Rise...

Tidalgate: Climate Alarmists Caught Faking Sea Level Rise



Quote:
What’s extraordinary is the desperation of scientists at what ought to be impeccably neutral and trustworthy institutions such as NASA, NOAA and PSMSL to pretend that it is.

When alarmists in charge of surface temperature datasets make dishonest adjustments to exaggerate the appearance of global warming, it looks like corruption.

When alarmists in the entirely separate field of sea level measurement make precisely the same sort of dishonest adjustments in order to accord with the same global warming narrative, it starts to look like a conspiracy.



Adjustments’ To Create Spurious Sea Level Rise

Have Now Infected The PSMSL Tide Gauge Data


Whistleblower Scientists: PSMSL Data-Adjusters Are Manufacturing Sea Level Rise Where None Exists


Quote:
In a new paper published in Earth Systems and Environment this month, Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier uncover evidence that Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) overseers appear to have been engaging in the “highly questionable” and “suspicious” practice of adjusting historical tide gauge data to show recent accelerated sea level rise where no such acceleration (or rise) exists.
Quote:
This adjustment of tide gauge data to yield a rising sea level trend where none exists is not occasional or episodic. Instead, for every adjustment of raw data analyzed, “the adjustments are always in the direction to produce a large rise in sea level.”


Here is the full paper.


https://link.springer.com/article/10...748-017-0020-z


Quote:

Conclusion

The reconstructed tide gauge records of Aden, Mumbai and Karachi are perfectly consistent with multiple lines of evidence from other key sites of the Indian Ocean including Qatar, Maldives, Bangladesh and Visakhapatnam. The sea levels have been stable since the start of the twentieth century in Aden similar to Karachi and Mumbai.



Climate change is all about agenda...

Not science...

Totally fake. And Big Pavement strongarmed Miami Beach into paving their roads higher because they wanted to sell more asphalt.

Seems like man made climate change is all about money and agenda, not saving the world.
I say this as I'm am hooking up my brand new coal furnace.

Don't get me wrong, I love science, but can you tell me how many times science has been wrong in the past?

Over long enough time scale, every time.

That was TheEnemy's assertion 620+ posts ago. They have not posted since 08-15-2017, 04:36 PM so it's just the peanut gallery.

My vote is no consensus. Economics drives science, who knew?

This is a feature, not a bug. Science self-corrects and improves accuracy over time. Climate science is well established, with almost 200 years of study. The evidence is strong.
