She thinks everyone in the state is a fellow extremists Las Crucis democrat like her self.
2 of the 4 counties next to the boarder are blue counties. She is going to turn at least one of them red.
NM is 49 and 49th for jobs and education, democrats depend on a steady supply of stupid poor people so that's not going to change.

ENERGY USE IN SWEDEN
More than half of the energy used in Sweden comes from renewable energy sources. Sweden manages to combine a high energy consumption with low carbon emissions.
Sweden has driven their CO2 emissions down below the global average.
No longer do developed countries need to be the worst polluters.

I wish the stink bug population would collapse in my house. Would really like to see mosquitos go too. Got no use for pantry moths either.

Careful what you wish for! If you house burns down (heaven forfend) you'd have no-one to blame but yourself.

Perhaps the best solution is to build a bug-proof house to move into.

That's the idea; with all that building a house hanging off a cliff talk I"m on about. Still not sold on the domular form, but then what do I know about dome living?

I'm looking for someone in the tiny house movement that will do some estimating, so the numbers don't come from a biased source me.

Three sets of numbers for some given area/volume and construction material (wood/metal/concrete)
Conventional construction
Traditional dome construction
Undisclosed dome construction
I think the numbers would prove out, but there is no way to convey the spiritual/psychological differences.

Post in that thread again and I'll make an offer that might help.

So - we are losing the base of the food chain - and you joke. We are losing the pollinators - and you yawn.

If it affect rain, food production (agriculture), it can kill people, specially in poor countries where food it's short.
