Everyone Who Knows What They're Talking About Agrees with Me,
yea... um... I don't know if my personality has much to do with thinking that, at most, CO2 levels have increased by 1-2 parts per thousand according to most sources (and possibly lower). That's the number that you'll never hear. If you think that 1-2 parts per thousand will certainly induce the apocalypse, yes, you should be wearing a tin foil hat. Water vapor is 200 times that and a more powerful global warming agent... this is called statistical noise.
Is typical asinine garbage. Sorry.. water is hundreds of times what man made CO2 is in terms of heat retention. Take a hot shower.
Or that Al Gore's chart is chart in "An Inconvenient Truth" was BS because the increases in CO2 FOLLOW heat by a few hundred years. Higher temps cause the oceans to belch CO2. Temps cause CO2 to go up, not the other way around. He's a conman.
So yes, global warming is a hoax at worst, a very, very tenuous scientific theory at best. Even if you disagree, certainly you realize that with no experimental verification... this stuff is highly, highly speculative. There are too many variables. Sorry. Go back to your Das Kapital and find another reason to hate capitalism, production and technology.
But I'm not done obliterating it... we still don't know what the hell is causing CO2 to creep up... so even if you think you know (cars, etc) you have no idea because there are infinite sources (plants, oceans play a role in the carbon cycle). So even if you can prove that global warming is true, you have a ton of assumptions to get by to come up with a productive solution or that doesn't make life net worse (like abandoning coal). Should we stimulate algea? Funny how all the solutions to this sci-fi theory conveniently empower left-wing politicians? just saying.
This Yale business is especially creepy because it goes Old School Stalin/Mao on us in suggesting that those people who don't agree that a far-fetched scientific theory (that is immensely profitable for rent-seekers chasing grants and subsidies) is a sign of an abnormal personality. Lock 'em up until they buy the junk science!

The Explanation For All Our Problems,
The problem is the pension monster. Federal pensions exceed social security. Pensions are the ponzi scheme... all but the most haplessly naive liberals (patrick?) believe that a social security "trust fund" exists with real assets. You can't have a scheme when nobody is fooled. Federal pensions are the real scheme.
Postal service workers are unionized with bloated pensions. That means that barring cuts, where they have to get paid on private sector lines (and I mean real private sector, as in $15/hour with minimal benefits), not seven figure pensions including their health care, postal service is preposterously inefficient. Hiring and firing should be normal, as a in a normal business. This means abolishing the postal unions.
Of course, you can assume that manichean politicians are bought off in such a crass way, but more likely union scale wages are simply asinine in a world with 20% real employment.
Don't mind the interruption of reality... things like the Eu blowing up because of 7 figure pension of government workers showing up two days a week in Greece...go back to your fantasy world of paranoid corporate conspiracies.

Proving the Teabaggers are full of crap in a single graph,
Prices went up, but so did wages. That was the wage-price spiral. The main people who got screwed were people on fixed incomes who didn’t own their own houses, but the 1972 Congress added automatic COLAs and SSI in 1972 to help address that.
You are all ignorant of economics. Instead of wasting your time on message boards, you need to read some basic economics textbooks, wikipedia.. this is why you sound so stupid.
Housing mortgage /interest costs shot through the roof in the late 70's because of inflation. Limited wage flexibility during recessions makes matters worse.. so the economy can't restart because uions refuse to drop wages. Same deal in 2010 when unions refuse to cut inflated public sector salaries. If you thing wages going up is great, go to zimbabwe and see how there inflationary economy works.
LOOK AT THE GRAPHS IWOG POSTED….PLEASE
wikipedia "balance of trade".... ignorance is usually something people like to cure. You are the exception.tatupu70 says
Kind of like CEOs making $25M/year?
You are the genius economics professor. If a company has a market cap of 100 billion then 25M joke salary. Tom Cruise salary? Derek Jeter? The market chooses the rates.. this is unlike where spainish air traffic controllers get 450k... that is not because of market forces, but thugocracy from union extortionism. One is legal, one is not. I don't expect you to understand this due to limited IQ, poor education, demented psychology. I really am not your econ professor.. read before you shoot your mouth off.
