Repeating the methods of "don'T rump" is no way to MAINTAIN your points. Meanwhile:

Virginian re-pubic-lick-uns used stupendously complex, immoral & undemocratic gerrymandering, to MAINTAIN power in Virginia, despite losing popular votes by 200,000. Now that the Courts partially redistricted some of Virginia, both re-pubic-lick-un houses couldn't MAINTAIN their power & both became Democratic....
Hyperbole.....dictionary partial definition: like "mile-high ice cream cones".
Virginian re-pubic-lick-uns got their mile-high ice cream cones melted to puddles.

More hyperbole:
So redpoint is eating crow today..... & dirty, melted ice cream.

I don't have a horse in the R vs D race. The 2 parties are nearly indistinguishable in my view, so either outcome is seen as a failure of humanity to respond out of reason rather than emotion. Both parties attempt to grow the power of the federal government rather than reduce it, and both come up with corrupt schemes of how to address symptoms of problems rather than tackling the problem itself.

To be sure, any "victory" is temporary, as the pendulum will always have its way. Bask in the glory now, as defeat is always around the corner.

I'll grant that I too succumb to "lazy" thinking. Not usually because I want to preserve an ideology, but rather because an issue doesn't appear to me to be so big/interesting to warrant deep investigation. Life is an optimization problem; one which I'm not so good at.

Lacking in NEET-speak so I can respond. That's not argument that's just contradiction.

Never conversed with any AGW denier, who confessed to being re-pubic-lick-un. AGW deniers lie as well as re-pubic-lick-uns.

Once, kkk(always small letters) members showed up at a "don'T rump" gathering. The two groups had no problems with each other, "cept for one item. Some members of both groups wanted to sit with both groups.

So far today I've viewed some awesome stuff on architecture (SUPERHOUSE - architecture & interiors beyond the everyday and How do you build a sacred space? | Siamak Hariri) but right now it's Vinay Gupta: The Cities That Will Walk Away


He's addressing the idea of resettling 5% of the world's population. I think sendler would like it because he addresses the overwhelming scale of the problem. I like it because he dates his enlightenment to when he visited Steven Gaskin's The Farm in Tennessee.

...now he moving on to his hexayurt design at Burning Man and open source design. And Coroplast!

Quote:
because the building industry is kind of a
gigantic ripoff. But there's no reason that we couldn't apply these kind
of principles to a new kind of emergency urbanism and then back propagate
that into the real world as a way of enormously reducing the price
of housing globally. And the overpricing of housing comes
from market manipulation and terrible engineering practice. Housing doesn't
have to be this expensive. We could fix it if you would let engineers
build houses rather than architects.
I'm starting to like this guy.

High frequency trading not fit for purpose, blockchain moots speed-of-light lag.

Concludes:
Quote:
and as we're forced into reality, we can get to grips with problems
like climate but it also comes at the cost of having to clean
up our act in terms of where the manufactured goods are manufactured and
what the consequences are there. So the future that I see is that
we build a world which is fundamentally more economically efficient, but
also a world which is fundamentally more just,
because the tools that we need for economic efficiency are
identical to the tools that we need for justice.
The actual software that you need to run an efficient world is also
the software that you need to run a just world. Efficiency and justice,
when you fundamentally get down to it, rely on exactly the same data
sets.
And that's all I had to say. Thank you.
Following on through my being a Civil Affairs officer in the military, through manufacturing geodesic dome housing, to supporting anarcho-capitalism this resonates with me. We should go down fighting, with flat-pack relocatable cities that offer employment and conditional sovreignty to those who can't ever go home again. Me like.

With all that evidence, AGW denier re-pubic-lick-uns predict an ice age.

Susp... a little bird told me:

Imperial College London: Satellite tracking shows how ships affect clouds and climate

Quote:
By matching the movement of ships to the changes in clouds caused by their emissions, researchers have shown how strongly the two are connected.

When ships burn fossil fuels, they release airborne particles containing various naturally occurring chemicals, including sulphur. These particles are known to modify certain types of clouds, which can affect climate.
[snip]
Aerosols are emitted from many sources, such as factories and cars, but it has been difficult to match these outputs with the influence on clouds, as there are many other factors at play.

However, with ship tracks, the relationship is more straightforward, enabling researchers to tease out the links between aerosols and clouds more easily.
[snip]
This shows that sulphate aerosols have the most significant impact on cloud formation, as opposed to other components of the ship exhaust, such as black carbon.

The result also means that a ship not in compliance with the regulations, by burning the current high-sulphur fuels without exhaust treatment, could be detected because it would create a measurable difference in the satellite-observed cloud properties.
