“Oh, Nannette, you know your thread is chat history is available for all to see here. I see what you are and I have no interest in reading any more than I have. You're dismissed.”

“Ha, ha, ha! I've been "dismissed"? Oh my! That's too funny! Can you imagine a real debate and the one losing the debate simply says, "I have no interest in your debate points so you're dismissed." The audience would certainly laugh.”

“So do you care to challenge any of the facts in the piece or are you happy to just attack the messenger. If that's all you've got, plus unsubstantiated talking points, there's no reason for us to continue. In order to continue the conversation you can dispute facts I post, post facts with actual sources or give up.”

mcgowann on Jun 2, 2014 at 15:13:08

“I see. You think you can create some silly rules as to who can and can't reply to your comments? You think that if you don't like the replies to your comment, you can pretend that is isn't disputing your supposed "facts"?

With the internet, you can find sources to back up just about anything but that doesn't mean that, just because it's on the internet, that it's true. It has been all over the media that Germany is reducing their reliance on nuclear energy since the meltdown at Fukushima and it has been all over the media that they've had to increase their use of brown coal. Just because you are unaware of it does not make it unsubstantiated. Maybe you should widen your scope of sources.”

“Oh Nanette, I'd check your sources if I were you.

Not only is Germany way ahead on green energy and moving forward at a ferocious pace --

(http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/05/13/3436923/germany-energy-records/

-- it's doing so well that they are dismantling their nuclear facilities because that dangerous form of energy generation is also a thing of the past.

I think you may have been snookered by the "sky is falling" carbon based energy producers.”

mcgowann on Jun 2, 2014 at 14:29:08

“What do you expect from a socialist George Soros funded liberal progressive propaganda source like "thinkprogress"?

Germany was creating most of its electricity with nuclear power and that had lowered their CO2 emissions. After the meltdown at Fukushima's nuclear plant, Germany began shutting down its nuclear power plants and has reverted to using brown coal, the dirtiest coal, to compensate for the loss of nuclear energy production. Therefore their CO2 emissions have increased by 4% in just the past year.

What's so sad is that the anti-nuclear environmentalists had such success at creating fear in Germany even though there is NO chance of a tsunami ever hitting anywhere in Germany.”

“Green energy is cheaper than carbon energy. Everyone knows we'll be better off without it. It's time to move, in spite to the dire predictions of the sky falling. Future generations need our help today.”

mcgowann on Jun 2, 2014 at 13:40:56

“Ha, ha, ha, ha!!! Are you kidding. Where did you ever get the idea that "Green energy is cheaper than carbon energy"??? The problem is that wind, solar and geothermal is not only unaffordable but also unreliable. Germany has reversed much of it's green energy policies because they've discovered that it is simply unaffordable, just too expensive. Nuclear power is the best alternative but the same environmentalists oppose it, too.”

“Hey Roxanne. Just for the I'm stating my opinions as well, I'm sorry they make you feel the need to insult me. I take it from your answer that you feel it is appropriate to make these claims about criminal charges without substantiation and on a day that his family can finally celebrate his homecoming after five years. That is appropriate to attack him while he is still in the hospital after being a prisoner of war under the most harsh conditions. I disagree with you -- and that should allowed without the "get over yourself" attitude. Kindness and consideration are traits that I admire. Retribution, can wait. That's my opinion. Thanks for the chance to try to communicate.”

“I'd not heard the term used until they started their demands. Still, there should be a presumption of innocence. Allow his family a brief respite and the joy of his return. If there are dues to be paid down the line, so be it. The man has spent 5 years of hell, give him a moment in the sun. What harm does that do?”

“Lessening our pollution will accomplish something on a global scale in the form of less global pollution. We live on a globe. Creating a green economy will actually help our economy though oil companies will tell you differently. The power of example is a mighty one and one that Americans tout all the time. So yes it makes sense that America leads the world in this as it does in many other things. How about some pride in what America can accomplish? You know the old "can do" spirit. Or is the planet not worth it? I say it is.”

“The impact on the environment will be miniscule. The impact on the economy will be devastating. The increase in the cost of energy will adversely impact the poor. Why such a callous disregard for the poor and their inability to afford basic energy costs?”
