    [–] Ajit Pai admits FCC lied about “DDoS,” blames it on Obama administration paddywacknack 1 points ago in politics

    When dont Democrats stand by their principles? And the cons get their way because they cheat.

    Because Democrats are honest and care about democracy. Also, short of violent rebellion there is no legal way for the Democrats to stop the GOP.

    When/if the Democrats regain power. The GOP will not stop corruption. It's what their party does.

    [–] New study reveals we are at the brink of starting a domino effect of adverse ecological phenomena that will make it almost impossible to control climate change. paddywacknack 1 points ago in Futurology

    No it is. There is a certain point where global temperatures will get hot enough that no matter what we do the exponential growth of that heat can not be stopped. The Ice caps reflect a large portion of heat from the sun so the more they melt the less heat they reflect, the hotter it gets, the more the melt, etc... this also doesn't include the pockets of methane gas (which is much more powerful if a greenhouse gas than co2) which hide under artic tundra. The reason people are freaking out now is because by the time we start SEEING these effects it will be much, much too late. So even if the world comes together once it starts to get really bad it'll be decades too late. It would lead to an atmosphere where humans (if not life in general...though I do believe single celled organisms could survive) would not be able to survive. Extinction is a very real possibility.

    Another thought is the oceans becoming too acidic and warm for most live to survive. This includes phytoplankton which supply about half the oxygen on plant earth. Rising temperatures create extreme weather which would start to cause desertification of many areas. Many areas would become inhabitable and cause a migrant crisis on an unimaginable scale. This is all while world economies would start to collapse as food becomes increasingly scarce. Not to mention fresh water becoming rare as well. Even if the human race survived the vast majority of the population would be wiped out. It's all exponential as well. As it gets hotter it gets hotter faster (for a couple of reasons that are too many for me to care to explain). In short, if we dont die from hungry or thirst, we suffocate slowly. Simply because its too hot for most thinks to survive. The 2 degree increase is the global average. Not average in single places of that makes sense.

    And you're one of the people I'm talking shit about huh? It isn't just a "warmer period" its warmer than the majority of species can survive. Including our food supplies and other species required to make earth habitable for us. If you want an example of what happens when global warming goes to far you can look in our own solar system. Venus is climate change out of control.

    The things is our goals are too low and will not stop catastrophe. If you are losing weight because you have a bad heart it doesnt matter how much you lose if it doesn't prevent a heart attack and all those people who are shouting that hear attacks are fake are stupid assholes. Sorry if I'm not forgiving of people driving the human race towards extinction because of stupidity and greed.
