  1. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    And they are not alone. I personally own waterfront property and understand the risks associated with that. Frankly, in this whole GW/CC story I am far less interested in oceans rising than I am with ocean acidification and oxygen depletion. The former offers decades and centuries for adaptation if necessary. The latter is a possible extinction level event.

    A cay is not really an island. It is an accumulation of sandy sediment driven onto existing reefs by winds and current. In a geologic sense they are ephemera.
  3. Some recent polls show him well ahead, some behind. The average shows he is ever so slightly trailing but well within the margin of error. Honest Abe's assertion that some people can be fooled ALL the time never rang truer.
  4. Looks like Trump didn't understand what that whole #metoo thing was all about.
  5. I agree on all points. There are some deep pockets here and they have a lot to lose. So much to lose IMO, I think they are impeding the criminal investigation by withholding critical pieces of evidence.

  8. Yeah, I think he's probably doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. Not surprising.
  9. I'm not hopeful under this administration or any other one I can foresee, but I'd like to think the anti trust division of the DOJ is just getting warmed up. Not just against outright monopolies but defacto monopolies that have been able to squeeze out competitors through anti competitive practices.
  10. Looks like Charlie Rose is next in the batter's box. I place him somewhere between Harvey Weinstein and Ron Jeremy on my "not too surprised meter".
  11. I hope you're just being obtuse and that you know what a modifier is and that you're just arguing for argument's sake anyway. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/article-of-faith Now an elitest snob isn't going to argue with the Cambridge dictionary too, are they?
  12. She seems drawn to unscrupulous predatory types:
  13. Proof or absence of proof is not a determinant. https://www.collinsdictionary.com/us/dictionary/english/article-of-faith
  14. It's not hard to find hypocrites. Sometimes it is as easy as looking in the mirror. I include myself of course.
  15. Do you know what an "article of faith" is? Can I get an Amen?
