Antarctica Hit Record Cold Temperature So Ridiculously Low It Hurts Just Hearing About It

Antarctica Hit Record Cold Temperature So Ridiculously Low It Hurts Just Hearing About It

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 21:11:02 in Green

“Let's think a while, Jeff: Record heat there, record cold there, what does that mean? Another way to think about these things...do you remember what the differential in night-time and day-time temperature on sister planet Venus is? Or on the moon, for that matter?

Well, Venus is barren, so is the moon. Pretty soon Earth will be barren too, unless we pull our heads out of the sand pretty quick.”

Young Tsoho on Dec 9, 2013 at 21:32:17

“Venus = 460C day and night.

Moon = no atmosphere which equates to extreme temperature differences (250C difference between daytime and nighttime temps)

Neither one of those two examples is anything like Earth.”

“"The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is more of an existential threat to this nation than a nuclear Iran, former Shin Bet Chief Yuval Diskin said on Wednesday [12/04/13] night".

That is a direct quote from Jerusalem Post”

“"Uninhabited islets".
"May or may not contain oil"
Which should be left in the ground...unless we intend for all life on the planet to perish.
Then it won't matter one bit.
Tell me, again, what is the excitement about these islets?”

“I wonder if they have stuff on Mr Ted Cruz, senator from Texas. He has certainly radicalized some American's view of government, with shutdown or default suddenly appearing 'cool'.”

Ralph Lowe on Nov 27, 2013 at 14:14:40

“We have asked ourselves over and over again, how one person could have such a following which led to the death of millions? Not cool.”

Some Senate Republicans Ready To Raise The Debt Ceiling

Commented Oct 7, 2013 at 22:34:55 in Politics

“It is reckless and irresponsible to continue talking about debt ceiling in the abstract. What every American should know is that interest rates on everything - home, auto, credit cards, business loans, everything - will skyrocket the moment the government defaults,

Did you get that? It means the price of bread, butter, bottled water and beer will skyrocket in sympathy.”

“Do you see where the problem lies, class?

Look at the question Mr Stephanopoulos (read: Media) reportedly asked Mr Boehner (read: GOP): ""If [Obama] continues to refuse to negotiate...

Therein lies the problem - US media unable, unwilling or complicit in the failure, to call a spade a spade.

The GOP is CLEARLY wrong in this matter, but you would not know it through the corporate media.”

“Government is handing corporate media a low-hanging fruit and the latter is too blind to see. It's simple...how much will the new war front cost and who will pay for it?

A nation 17 trillion dollars in debt can't afford more dumb wars. New rule: any elected officials supporting the new war should be required to personally contribute their entire paychecks for the duration of the hostilities, however long that may be.”
