He will, the fun part will be watching him try to link it to the first World War. Trucks, tanks, and airplanes were new gagets then and most transportation was ships and trains using coal fired steam engines. Just as much material was moved using draft animals as oil powered engines.
Huh?

LIAR. You don't know me to speak for me. Find another interest.

Instead of posting lies, notice your friend - like you - does not know the difference.
Remember, you are as absurd as you post.
LOL, So earthling from Spain doesn't know our postal abbreviations for the states and from that you deduce we are all stupid. Now back to explaining how oil is the cause of World War I and II. Highly anticipating your "highly intellectual" response.

Yes, but all this would cost just 1% of GDP, as the report says. Hardly a crushing burden. We just spent twenty times that to bail out the global financial industry.
When the US debt is already at 102% of GDP(and growing), yeah, what's another 1% added on top of what we already aren't going to be able to pay off? Great idea. Sure am glad you're aren't the gov't chief economist. OR, maybe you are.

What is even better is that Space Blues would not know Spanish Postal Codes.

Don't you just love how spambot derails on the subject of informing us of how oil was the reason for WWI and WWII after he claimed that he has the "big brain" and "high intellect" to know these things? But in his "highly intellectual" world, he somehow thinks that knowing all the postal code abbreviations are the same as being knowledgeable in geography. So again, I can't wait for his "highly intellectual" response on the history of the world wars.

We must stop the earth from spinning! The prescession of the equinoxes varies the amount of solar radiation exposure to the northern hemisphere of the earth!. Those variations have been calculated by astrophysicists and a relationship has been established between glaciation (ice ages) and interglacial periods (warming trends) on this planet with the precession of the equinoxes (varying tilt of this planet). Please, dear god, we must stop this spinning! Someone please stop this planet from spinning! ARRRRRRGGGHHHHH!!!
For more information on earth-sun interaction search: Milankovitch cycles.
BTW, this planet is currently 18,500 years into this current interglacial period. We are just now seeing trees in the arctic circle. The Eemian interglacial began 131,000 years ago and by 125,000 years ago there were forests in the arctic circle. Thus the Eemian was far more abrupt in change as the current interglacial is advancing at a rate-of-change just 33% of the last interglacial. But, we mustn't allow that to block a new tax called cap and trade or carbon credits.
Trees in the artic circle? Where? Greenland? Or are you crediting Canada and Siberia as artic circle?

The question is not glaciation from precession. The question is human activity (that equals bacteria activity) that leads to environmental changes just like the Cyano change the CO2 atmosphere to O2 atmosphere that led to oxygen based life (more efficient way of using energy). We can do the same and destroy our ozone, acidify the oceans, and introduce a thermal change JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO OWN THREE HUMMERS, TWO MANSIONS, AND RUN FOUR COKE BASED ELECTRICAL PLANTS!

Just get a real job!

That was odd, I copy pasted churmudgeon's address (Ash Flat, AR) in the search box, and it came back as Ash Flat, AZ, which I didn't notice until SpamBotty kindly drew my attention to the error.

We could pay off our debt in a heartbeat, unlike the PIIGS.

The 1% of GDP or so that we will invest to halt destruction of the climate and the oceans will be a far wiser investment than the vastly larger sum we just handed fraudulent bankers to enhance their very cushy bonuses.

Because, as McKinsey says, if we don't invest 1% now we'll likely be on the hook for twenty times that in the not so distant future. There is simply no choice, no matter what teabaggers driving Suburbans think.

Please call the bumbler-in-chief admin IMMEDIATELY! You've GOT to tell them your secret. Maybe, just for entertainment's sake, you should tell all of those surburban driving tea baggers how "we could pay off our debt in a heartbeat." Inquiring minds want to know, oh enlightened one!

LMAO that think you have this all figured out. Thanks for the laugh Krusty the clown.

Now I realize facts are hard to come by for you...but, I was just looking at the debt clock. The US federal spending for 2012 is over 3.6 trillion and revenue is 2.3 trillion. Total interest on our debt is over 3.6 trillion and our total debt is over 56 trillion. Unfunded liabilities for what has already been promised to us is over 119 trillion. What kind of world do you live in that this disaster can be paid off in a heartbeat.

I figured you would know, but I think it's funny that Spammy decides knowing world geography is the ability to know all the postal code abbreviations.
