Our planet needs a cooling period

The other day I was struck by the stark irony in the OBSERVER’s View (Aug. 22)....

Judeye how do the bats and birds(including raptors) provide input into on where the wind turbines will be located? Again I ask how you justfy the use of fossil fuels to manufacture,transport,and operate the wind tubines? It seems you selectively (along with the Robot) forget to answer a simple question.

unlearned libs, here is the quote from johhny von neumann, by macrae. pg 88. Without fritz haber, germany would have had to surreneder in WW1.no explosives and certainly no ammonia nitrate fertilizer . he used the famous lib line, if it saves lives and shortens the war , his chemical warfare work, it was worth it . he won a nobel. His work critical to the world. , his wife suicides. So libs, gals, union members, please tell us the importance of the govt, union members and above all diversity and the need for women in science.the guys like haber literally blew you away. I find that heart warming, dont you ? lindsay, give us another end of world thing . OK ? I cant wait for it. Use feminine intution.or as the ancient writings say, women will be obsoleted from the world scene. . Its hidden in genesis, dk.

so lindsay, take judeyes hand along with the LWV's and sing together, koombaya. Love makes the world go round. uh, no it does not. Men do. You gals have been scooped by steiner. You have been left in the mire of love and maternal instincts, great for kids, but not life and science. foe even it takes the male contribution, fire dk, fire, to make guys who change the world. women would only produce endless gals, worrying about something and maybe suiciding like i have said here numerous times. Lindsay and the gals , the libs too, do not know how the world is actually built or is run or how to modify it with steinertrons.once again, the activists and especially the fairer sex is left bewildered, almost twitching in conversion disorder, like the several suicides and misfits i have posted here.

lindsay and the libs and especially the gals miss that some inventor, almost always a guy invents something that averts yet another tragey in the liberals minds.natural gas fracking is such a thing . the pipelines will be reversed form the gulf of mexico to let gas and oil flow south to the gulf instead of north. This due to fracking. we were suppose to run out of gas lindsay. thank god the men dont believe the conversion disordered women, like you ! now i guess you wont believe my hydrocarbon grower formula, pure energy appled to the bowels of the earth to grow hydrocarbons. running out you know. As above so below. Above the earth grows crops, below it is hydrocarbons. Natural gas is thought to be renewable now. all pure heisenberg non chemical energy.real science judeye. foreign technology to the dumbacrats .

The wise men knew this as they went another way to escape death . This is for dk who calls me a charlatan for my gas machines. Lindsay is clueless on science as most gals are. i cant resist this, you gals did make some contributions to science and the world. Its WW1 , the big bertha cannon, named after an overweight woman in the krupp family was a great artillery gun. The propellant was fritz habers invention. Eplosives from atmospheric nitrogen. See pg 88, johnhny von neumann by norman macrae. haber was one of the unpubicized men who changed the world forever. His wife suicided, because his work led to chemical warfare and later zyklon b. you gals did it again. Lindsay picks up the slack with her end of the world scenarios.50 megat ton h bombs did not do it and lindsay is concerned.no, its mental illness.

lindsay and the libs mention love, like the hippies in the 60's. Love makes the world go round they think. well it does not. especially for dk and the gals. ever wonder why there were no gal apostles ? ever wonder why women are absent , other than for pleasure and babies in history ? Because at the 2 slit level, where all matter arises into existance, bitter hatred is ruling. The women will revolt at this, refuse to learn how science actually works, to be blunt, where the actual inventions arise. read the lives of tesla and von neumann. There minds were out together in a radically different way than nealry all of the libs and especially the gals.the love story is an apologetic, floated out to make the planet more inhabitable. even the atheists got this right.how could a loving god make a place with so much suffering?

judeye and lindsay show women just dont understand science. The post about women before the 20th century and their accomplishments are laughable. i have said this over and over . A handful of men changed the way we live. They would be Tesla, alternating current and motor ubiquitous on the planet.fritz haber and the ammonia process, fertilzer for food growing. Explosives too.Air conditioning by an angola ny guy. electronic work all done by males. schockley, bryce, jobs and others. They made this possible, posting like this.what part of this are you missing gals ?: all of it. You never say anything about my energized gas, proven in analytical labs and driving . Why does science elude you liberals ? so lindsay, you and judeye prove over and over why the huys judst overwhelm the gals. You gals suffer from conversion disorder, worrying about the end of the planete. the end of babies and womens healthcare choice, abortions.

lindsay and the libs are just plain nuts. how exactly are humans chainging the cliimate ? from Co2 ? Over and over I have said co2 doe not trap heat.this is real science, but libs dont know it. Over and over I have said consensus is not science. Any good invention is a denial of the conensus. Again i have said I have energized gas, in a 2 slit machine to give 25% extra mileage. . the libs miss it again. Over and over i said physiscs teaches this world arises from an unobservable heisenberg uncertainty world. real science again.no opinions just facts. how do all thee facts miss you libs. we were to cool , the rage in the 70s. that switched to warming which switched to climate change. You forgot sunrise and sunset lindsay.

Linday...how is Obama "acting like a madman"?

What specifically has he done that is "madman" status?

The madman in my opinion are those in Congress who have done NOTHING except say NO to everything. Now some of them are even threatening to shut down our entire government because they lost the battle over ACA. They are madman with power. Most dangerous...

JoeW..the site..fish and game (which my brother in law just retired from in Alaska where he told us the polar bear will no longer be in the USA in a few years..due to climate change)

the site goes on with guidelines and recommendations on where to place the wind turbines. It is excellent as they are very involved in promoting this alternative energy source..WHILE..protecting species of birds, including bats.

Thanks for bringing up important points. Hope others will go to the fish and game site.

It isn't going to happen when you have people like Pelosi, Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Obama and Cuomo dividing this nation the way they do. I almost always stop and offer help to people but I was raised in a much kinder era then todays youth. And we didn't have every minority ( and no I am not against them) asking for special consideration because of what happened 50, 100 500 or 1000 years ago. Or because people don't like gays, Christians, blacks, white browns, yellows etc. Politics and special interest groups are killing this nation.

American--I appreciate you taking the time to look at the site and I'm glad you found some material that you agree with. I won't be an apologist for any politician. Obama is acting like a madman. American politics are a total circus sideshow of freaks. I don't put much stock in our salvation from government at this point. But I do have faith in the people of this area. Just a couple weeks ago I was at Tractor Supply parking lot, it was a hot humid day and I had the hood up to put coolant in my car: no less than 3 different strangers stopped to ask my if I needed help. I'd love to see us do something here that's special and brings us together. Good people. Clever and skilled people. We all love a good picnic and getting together. I think it's worth a shot.

Also this "The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, if signed into law, will signal the death knell of our constitutional republic and the formal inception of a legalized police state in the United States. Passed by the House on May 26, 2011 (HR 1540), the Senate version (S. 1867) was passed on Dec. 1, 2011. Now only one man — Barack Obama, a scholar of constitutional law — will make the decision as to whether the Bill of Rights he went to Harvard to study will be superseded by a law that abrogates it." Seems there is a lot of truth about Obama on that site.

You know you might be onto something with that Carolyn Baker website. "With the continuing release of secret files on the NSA’s spying programs on American citizens, spying programs supported in their entirety by the Obama Administration, it appears that the false illusion of Barack Obama as the reincarnation of Jack Kennedy is finally coming to an abrupt and rude end." At least I found this truth on it.

From Carolyn Baker dot Net: The link between rapid climate change and human extinction is basically this: the planet becomes uninhabitable by humans if the average temperature goes up by 4-6°C. It doesn’t sound like a lot because we’re used to the temperature changing 15°C overnight, but the thing that is not mentioned enough is that even a 2-3°C average increase would give us temperatures that regularly surpass 40°C (104°F) in North America and Europe, and soar even higher near the equator. Human bodies start to break down after six hours at a wet-bulb (100% humidity) temperature of 35°C (95°F). This makes the 2003 heat wave in Europe that killed over 70,000 people seem like not a very big deal.

Factoring in the increase we’re already seeing in heat waves, droughts, wildfires, massive storms, food and water shortages, deforestation, ocean acidification, and sea level rise some are seeing the writing on the wall:

We’re all gonna die!

Hotter Earth May Boost W. Nile Virus West Nile virus might be surviving and thriving in New York because of global warming, scientists say. The appearance of West Nile and other exotic diseases in new locales can be seen as a "a wakeup call that things are changing. They're changing due to our own habits, our level of energy consumption," said Dr. Kent Bransford, an oncologist and hematologist who works as a climate-change consultant for Physicians for Social Responsibility.

West Nile Virus Outbreak Linked to Climate Change As NWF’s new report Ruined Summer: Carbon Pollution’s Extreme Toll on Summer highlights, there can be another serious aspect to these attacks: West Nile virus. Transmitted by mosquitoes to humans, the Center for Disease Control says West Nile virus can cause severe symptoms, including permanent neurological effects, in 1 out of every 150 persons infected. And about 20 percent of those infected have significant symptoms like fever, headache and nausea for days. The Climate Change Link The first time the virus was detected in the Western Hemisphere was a New York City outbreak in 1999. More recent climate change science indicates that this was just the start of a problem that will increasingly plague our backyards. As climate scientists stated in 2007: (August 31, 2012) EcoWatch (more on West Nile Virus in our area]

From New Hampshire DEPT OF HEALTH:

Climate Change Many New Hampshire residents are concerned about climate change and its relationship to human health. The weight of evidence demonstrates that human induced climate change is occurring in New Hampshire1 and will likely affect public health in a number of important ways. Public health officials in NH can expect climate change to result in increases in certain infectious diseases2, more injuries from severe weather related events3, and increased cardiac and respiratory problems from poor air quality and higher pollen levels4. Infectious Diseases

Changing rain and temperature patterns may result in increases in or re-emergence of vector borne (tick or mosquito) diseases such as West Nile Virus (WNV), Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and Lyme disease. Isolated cases or clusters of other less common climate-mediated diseases such us Q fever, Hantavirus, and Tularemia, may arise in the coming years.

The whole point of the Daily Show and Colbert Report is that there is so much to make into satire in the television news sphere. The conversation this community needs is way beyond fighting over which t.v. station you prefer.
