My intention is always to bring discomfort to those who hold ideas so dearly that mere skepticism evokes contempt. Well executed trolling should evoke discomfort.

Science didn't give me anything. The universe operates in a way that transcends science. Science is a methodology of making predictions with increasing certainty. I value the scientific method, but it isn't sufficient. Certainly it's incapable of defining value.

Clearly I have respect for scientific methods despite the extremely limited way in which we implement it, otherwise I wouldn't have mentioned that a good proxy for determining overall human health would be to examine the trend of life expectancy... I guess I should go wander off into the forest and trend life expectancy in the nude. Perhaps I'd discover both enlightenment and the trajectory of human well-being.
It's a meaningless metric.You can have a green revolution in the 1950s to defeat the spread of communism,only to lose the entire planet in the next century,and incalculable human suffering,as those billions,who are a product of increased life expectancy,now perish on a planet incapable of feeding them.20/20-vision as you go over the cliff.

If it is on PBS, then you can stream it pretty much anytime on the PBS streaming channel after it is broadcast.

I normally find Michael Moore films to be nearly complete garbage, but he finally put something out that actually attempted to seek truth. I couldn't believe it; he actually risks offending his base. While I don't accept some of his premises, he's changed my opinion that Moore is a charlatan. Seems to be very genuine in this film.

You can't be a believer if you question anything. That's not science. That's religion.
They're not like me,they worship me.I'm the religion! I have legions of minions spread across the globe,doing my bidding.I trained Sun Tsu,Marque de Sade,Machiavelli,Al Gore and Greta Thunberg.Of course,all that's above your pay grade.
You're only on Earth to be smacked down every time you exercise free speech.And you always will,until you submit to aero-speak.It's always been the agenda.Top conspiracy! Bad to the bone.

I'll reiterate Daren's request to discontinue political type banter since some of us missed that thread.

Wouldn't want any of you's to go the way of... what's his name.

There is another team working opposite of ben Davidson to predict earth quake droughts for places that have seen deadly earthquakes throughout history.

In permalink # 8686 you provide 'Statistics-Quake Watch.'
Quake Watch is a creature of Davidson's Suspicious Observer.
All the data is, or includes Davidson in the attribution.
Davidson implies that LAIC 'causes' earthquakes,rather than LAIC being an artifact of a seismic event.That may exist in the Davidson universe,I've seen no proof that it exists elsewhere.
And Quake Watch doesn't offer any prima facie evidence that Davidson's model predicted anything.The 'solar' connection? Where is his Nobel Prize?
And here again,you've spoken nothing in your own tongue,only parroting others.If you can't personally explain a concept in a few sentences,then it doesn't bode well for your command of the information.
And I fail to see a tie-in to climate change.
