Incidentally, we should have rain today, tomorrow, and thunderstorms after that.

I should find myself swimming to work and back.

I remember hearing that we were going through another ice age in the 70s. This is why winters were worse,
because man was causing an ice age, now man is causing a heat wave.

Correct -- the sky-is-falling chant back then was "global cooling!!!11"

What if both were right?! Iceage is just delayed due to global warming, global warming is simply not such a bad ass because it has to battle the cold and then, 10 years after we go completely green, everything is instantly shock frosted. *shivers*

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news people, but I'm afraid none of us are going to get out of this alive.

Eventually global warming will cause the sun to go super-nova and kill everything on earth.

Man, if only that would happen. I wouldn't have to deal with taxes anymore.

I'm sure we will find a way to tax you appropriately before you have a chance to die.

I've never before heard the expression 'taxed to life.'

“Put into laymen’s terms, the solar panels capture the sun’s energy, but pull on the sun over time, forcing more energy to be released than the sun is actually producing,”

The answer is obvious, burn more coal, and gas to generate electricity. 

We can have all that glorious smog back, YAY!

[imitating Walter Cronkite]

Adrian Cronauer: I just want to begin by saying to Roosevelt E. Roosevelt, what it is, what it shall be, what it was. The weather out there today is hot and shitty with continued hot and shitty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut.

electricity. 

The answer *is* obvious. It's called "nuclear" and it conveniently exposes the fact that the anti-energy crowd really does hate the idea of inexpensive energy. Pebble-bed and Breeder reactors are safe to operate and produce very little waste, but the watermelons won't let us build them.

since i'm living 60 km next to one of the 3? pebbel reactors that existed I pretty much know it doesn't work. pebbles break, and the reactor swallowed more than a dozend of them.

Breeder? I pass the building where this technology was developed everyday on my way to work. Its a DIY market nowadays.

forget about it. wet dreams of 60'ies scientists. they're not going to exist. never. neither will flying delorians.

Germany's plant didn't work out but China seems to be moving forward with the technology.

Heh... that makes perfect sense.

After all, with the value the Chinese have of human life, they are sure to make the technology work such that it has only beneficial effects on the human race.
