rightists, why do you hate science?

twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/10900.. If you support this fool you support denial of science. Rightists, why do you care so little about the preservation of our ability to live on this planet? Could it be because your ideology is short-sighted and emotional? Or are you just truly incapable of understanding simple logic? Please respond
2019-01-31 19:01
What's emotional about being rightist?
2019-01-31 19:02
you are afraid of the logical consequences of believing the truth about climate change so you deny it.
2019-01-31 19:19
1. Why do you think I am a rightist 2. Trump doesn't speak for every rightist?

Don't know where the triggered part came from tbh. So you dont mind to call them what they think they are, even though you say it's caused by their mental illness. That's pretty sad because this will support them in their weirdo claims and keep them trapped in their mental problems.

so you're saying you can cure mental illness? because i don't think that's possible at least not with the current technology. I think is stupid to think you can get them out of their "world", this people obviously need psicological and medical help. meanwhile the rest of us have to just accept the fact that they are not normal and live with it is not that difficult... tho they ptrobably would like to be called abnormal so i wouldn't say that in public.

2019-02-22 13:40
Yes, and in english gender and sex have the same meaning unless you're a neo-liberal revisionist. You're either born a boy or a girl. And if you 'identify' as the opposite, or something you made up, then you're mentally ill. You don't go around telling a schizofrenic that the voices he hears are real, do you?

"unless i'm a neo-liberal revionist". Words change meanings all the time, thats how language works. In this case the meaning of gender has changed. Why is that a problem? "You're either born a boy or girl". No one is denying this. " And if you 'identify' as the opposite, or something you made up, then you're mentally ill." I mean mentally ill may not be the nicest way to put it, but I guess compared to a typical person, yes that would be a fair assessment. I'm confused are you denying the existence of transpeople or not. What exactly is your position here?
2019-02-22 13:52
I'm not denying that transpeople exist. What I'm saying that is that you shouldn't glorify harmful behaviour. It's like telling an obese person that their body is fine as is. But we all know that it isn't. If you actually have a spine and care about people then you want people to improve, not to suffer. Transpeople have an unimaginably high suicide rate, and the reason is because they're taught not to love the way they were born, and are instead taught to embrace the monsters they become.

"Taught to embrace the monsters they become". Gonna need a citation here. I'll make a point that personally I don't agree with this lgbtq+ tripe either. But I would hesitate to call someone a monster because they're born with gender dysphoria.
2019-02-22 14:02
lol I knew you were going to pick up on the fact that I used the word "monster". Maybe it's not the right word, but that doesn't change my view. If you actually have compassion for people then you want to help them improve. Not to feed their self-destruction.

What exactly do you think pyschiatrists and doctors are trying to do? They're trying to help them! The fools doing all those nonsense pride parades and stuff is nothing to do with science, those are laymen trying to normalise transgenderism. Make of that what you will but personally I'm not a fan. I think we are reaching a conclusion in this conversation btw, seems like we're pretty much on the same page.
2019-02-22 14:12
Yeah we seem to be mostly on the same page. But I wouldn't agree with ALL psychiatrist and doctors helping these people. Either that or the only professionals they're seeing are self proclaimed psychiatrist who graduated from the school of tumblr gender studies.

What is wrong with being a revisionist? Science is constantly revising itself when new evidence is presented. Sex is used to describe you as male or female, gender to describe your masculinity/femininity. This is not even new, so its not revisionism. Also, gender dysphoria is a mental illness, which is treated often by hormone treatment or in some cases surgery. If this helps people, and doctors/psychologists recommend this, why is it bad?
2019-02-22 13:58
Giving someone with gender dysphoria hormone treatment or a sex change doesn't help them. They're mentally ill, not physically. Neo-liberal gender politics don't care about people, because they're too scared to give actual help and just leads to an even more ill person, which in turn often leads to suicide(as I said in #172). If you think this is unreasonable then it's also unreasonable to tell a smoker that he's gonna die of lung cancer if he doesn't quit.

Norway Aqw0rd 
> Giving someone with gender dysphoria hormone treatment or a sex change doesn't help them. It does. The failings are thought to be socially. No need to quote the heritage foundation article, the scientist behind the success of sex reassignment treatment has refuted that. The fact is that transgender people exists. And the best way currently to help people with gender dysphoria is to give them access to hormone treatment or srs. These treatments are not given from leftists, but are recommended from doctors/psychologists and scientists. Also, Id like to know where you get that trans people choose to be trans, just as smokers choose to be smokers.
2019-02-22 14:13
They may not choose to be trans. But they're encouraged by other ill people that to be that. I really don't believe that most transpeople are born thinking they way they do. In the modern western world, kids are brainwashed to believe that it's bad to be a man, and that they should be ashamed of being a man. It wasn't that long ago since I was in school and I was taught this horseshit. So when you treat kids like then you're undoubtedly gonna end up with a few disturbed ones that fully took home the message. And instead of trying to help them return back to a normal state of mind, they're instead fed more garbage by the same people.

Norway Aqw0rd 
Ok, so this is all based on what you feel is happening. I don't really care about that. The studies I have read alongside with the knowledge that these types of treatments are recommended by trained professionals makes me think it is currently the best option. Men have been critiqued in some regards, but you have to be pretty insecure to call it an attack on men, or that men should be ashamed for being a man. I'm a 93'er and still in uni, and I have not the same impression as you, so no I was never taught that I should be ashamed of being a man. Still, stop talking about your feelings and read up on this issues rather than to take it from talkshow hosts. Biology from primary school isnt sufficient to have a good understanding about this topic.
2019-02-22 14:35
Maybe you'll get a wakeup call then once the same agenda reaches Norway. But I do hope that you wont have to experence it.

Well, I am currently studying in Australia, and no one is shaming me for being a man here either. I am not a fragile man, I can handle criticism, and if that criticism is invalid I will point that out. You still won't address any real points to your argument and only base it on your own personal experience, which would be your feelings in this case.
2019-02-22 14:58
I suggest that you read this. heritage.org/gender/commentary/sex-reass.. I doubt you're gonna change your stance so it's up to you if you want to keep bickering.
2019-02-22 15:36
I literally predicted this in #185 Have you even read the study that article references? The creator of that source has refuted this and the statistics not changing in that study after srs is more likely due to the social issues being trans (not being accepted) You kinda need to actually read and engage in my arguments if you want to defend your stance, rather than to spew talking points.

And they do, and the most effective treatment is transitioning. They see doctors and therapists, both of which make sure that the patient is 100% with transitioning. If they are still questioning, nothing will happen besides more talks.

You have no capability to read between the lines and understand more complex concepts than just reading something you want to believe and deciding it's true. IQ scores don't measure innate intelligence, they are significantly impacted by environment. There is very little genetic diversity among humans in comparison to other animals, and very little room for significant differences in innate intelligence.

No but 1 time is too much also ( i am boy so they havent raped me yet)
2019-02-01 07:15
how many people do you know personally that have been raped by refugees?
2019-02-22 13:52
0 cuz i live so far from big cities that refugees are afraid to come here, but i have heard that my friend's friend got sexual harassment
2019-02-22 14:28
i live in "germanistans" 2nd biggest city and I havent had a single bad experience with refugees, nor have i heard from anyone else that he got raped or some shit. Im not denying that it does happen but its not as bad as the media you listen to is trying to make it. You dont have to live in fear of getting robbed by someone.

I don't think you realize that it looks a lot like a joke because of how cold the bumfuck nowhere of the United States is right now. And it's hard to say we don't like science. Both sides (in this scenario the left and right demographics) have plenty of religion-heavy and science-heavy people. It just happens to be that the president doesn't prioritize the sciences enough, and it is one of the things I personally have against the president. We like science, like everyone else. The problem is the support of the sciences wasn't a top discussion until the election process was over and Trump was already in. So go and change your mindset on this, and make it "the president needs to start putting the sciences more in the front of the agenda than before."
2019-01-31 19:08
"Global warming is a joke because it's cold outside." "We don't dislike science."
2019-02-19 23:17
No idea where those quotes are from, but I'm just going to assume your point is that they are relevant. They aren't actual quotes of mine nor quotes from that trump tweet. Aside from that confusion, you also suggested that the right-winged demographic is emotional, which is comically false. The more left you go, the more emotional you are. The more right you go, the more heartless you are. I assumed if you were making an American political discussion, something like this would already be common knowledge to you.
2019-02-20 18:48
>I don't think you realize that it looks a lot like a joke because of how cold the bumfuck nowhere of the United States is right now. >And it's hard to say we don't like science. >The more left you go, the more emotional you are. This is not "common knowledge" it's simply an untrue thing you say constantly. Climate change denialism is a great example of the complete inability of the right to think about issues rationally and set aside their emotions. Just because right wingers love SAYING that the left is emotional and they're not doesn't mean it's true or common knowledge. And just because you feel like it's true doesn't mean it is, because your feelings are not facts right-winger.

I'm a Ph.D. student majoring in Natural Resources and Environmental Science at U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. And I'm telling you my opinion, which is based on many published studies, this term global warming does not exist. The truth is: humans can only promote local changes in weather. That does not mean that we should stop the development of sustainable technologies. By the way there are many other negative impacts promoted by anthropization.

People keep posting this gender stuff as a refute to leftism. I just want to say that this is a tiny issue that a fringe group of extremists believe in. The larger issue of trans rights (which is still a small leftist topic anyway) is a more legitimate debate - (see gender dysphoria). For me as a leftist, this isn't even something I care strongly about and I don't even see why anyone even cares what "gender" someone identifies with. Personally gender (at least in the leftist definition) doesn't really exist and in the rightist definition gender == sex, so people are arguing different topics. More important leftist topics (imo) would be to do with increasing taxes on higher income bands and on immigration. All this non-sense about gender is just detracting from real issues.

nt but most 'rightist' are saying global warming is a natural and cyclical event that can't be stopped either way. Man-made co2 have a minor effect on the overall process and the outcome is inevitable. This means flooding is bound to happen and nothing can stop it. This is the true science and these so called 'libtards' are just here to get some easy money from the uninformed to 'help the earth'. In reality though, nothing really happens and if something happens the effect is even smaller that it might delay the natural cause for 1 second more. In other words, nothing will save his house from getting flooded anyways
2019-02-19 23:46
A doubling of CO2 in the atmosphere increases global temperature by between 2-4 degrees. CO2 in the atmosphere has gone from 280ppm to 410ppm since 1880.

Do you agree with science that the climate has drastically changed in the past, way before homosapiens? Do you agree with the fact that the United States currently produces roughly 15% of the global carbon emissions? Why do you think the world is going to end due to this when that same dogma, "the world will end in x (usually less than 20) years" has been preached since the early 1900s. Climate change has become a taboo issue, similar to how religion has been for the past hundreds of years, whereas if you do so much as to question its validity, you are immediately deemed a denier and written off as illogical.
2019-02-20 00:03
It's changed over the course of thousands of years. A 1 degree increase like we're having now over about 120 years usually takes between 16000 and 20000 years and depends on CO2 in the atmosphere, which has doubled since the industrial revolution and we know it's from fossil fuels because we can measure the proportions of different isotopes of carbon. 15% of emissions is a fucking lot when you take into account that the USA only makes up about 4,5% of the world's population.

Do you also not believe in evolution, tectonic plates or that the earth is round? How can you seriously be tricked by oil lobbyist lies when there's a total scientific consenus? ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere has doubled due to burning of fossil fuels, CO2 absorbs and reflects heat (it's a greenhouse gas), the stratosphere is cooling according to satellite measurements due to heat being trapped in the troposphere by the CO2, the warming is most significant in the night because it's due to increased heat retention and not increased heat radiation from the sun, the temperature has changed as much in 120 years as it usually takes 16000-20000 years to do. EVERY university and research institution in the world with relevant research supports the consensus on climate change. You're wrong and you're being fooled to deny science by greedy short sighted economical interest groups.

"the temperature has changed as much in 120 years as it usually takes 16000-20000 years to do" - this is bullshit, who came up with this "usually takes 16000-20000 years to do" like its a linear thing. This is exactly something a libtard would say Climate change is based on an insane number of things happening in the atmosphere. The earth has experienced periods of global warming and cooling in the past. Life on earth adapted to it every time through evolution You're encouraging the same type of stupid propagandaa like "cutting into the amazon forest will affect oxygen levels on earth"

No not like it's linear but like with natural causes it takes tens of thousands of years for a change of 2 degrees to happen, and the milankovich cycle, the sun's increasing heat, none of those predictable factors are aligned with the extremely rapid change we're seeing. 2 degrees globally is a fucking shitton hotter. the ice ages were basically 2 degrees colder and that caused most of the earth to be covered in ice hundreds of meters thick
2019-02-23 23:21
No it doesnt always take thousands of years to change a few degrees, thats the point. It can warm up with 5 degrees in 100 years then cool down 7 degrees in 200 years then heat up 2 degrees in 300 years and so on The fact that after 20000 years the temp is 2 degrees hotter doesnt mean jack shit because in between all those years it most probably fluctuated a lot, and will continue to do so Im not saying humans dont have any influence on climate change. We might have, but we couldnt tell for sure how much
2019-02-24 00:18
You're so far out of your depth. You sound like a 6yo saying they can jump 10 meters up in the air. Global temperatures don't fluctuate by 7 degrees between years and definitiely not for decades on end either. You clearly have no clue about short or long term climate changes. The historical massive temperature shifts while there's been life on earth have taken tens thousands of years, a change of 4 degrees would have you go from an ice age to a hothouse earth period. These events, when the planet"s gotten 2 degrees warmer before, have led to mass extinctions just like it is now. But you're probably oblivious to the 6th mass extinction going on. Global temperatures fluctuate by like 0,2 degrees between years and averages out to extremely slow trends over long periods of time, until now. We literally can tell with very high confidence quite precisely how much. Not "we might". We definitely do. It is not controversial at all amongst people who understand science.
2019-02-24 01:00
I was trying to make a point. Maybe i should have said 20 degrees so you get it And no, we definitely dont. You can pretend youre a man of science all you want
2019-02-24 01:41
What do you mean we don't? we have advanced climate models correctly predicting temperature trends, tipplng points, effects and causes. Why are you denying the science?

Global warming has not even increased by 1 degree, is far from being a threat to our survival at this stage, what we need is scientifics investigating how to revert or improve the situation, for example, the ozone layer can be restored by creating artificial ozone to restore it, but no one seems to give a shit about doing it, all they do is trying to sell you "environmentally friendy air conditioning that doenst damage ozone layer" for 2k€, rightist are pragmatic and do what is better from themselves/their country, so until a real way to combat global warming can be used they wont worry about wasting shit ton of money on stuff that dont even change the situation.
2019-02-22 13:09
No, you're wrong. ipcc.ch/sr15/chapter/chapter-1-pdf/ We don't need more research into what to do. We know what we have to do. Now we have to do it. Eliminate CO2-equivalent emissions.

Your opinions don't change the facts which align with the VAST majority of climate scientists. So you are just wrong. This isn't a climate 'debate'. This is rightwing laymen arguing facts with unbiased scientists. It is the literal equivalent of denying gravity.

If i rembember leftists are the ones that hate science ... After all they are the ones that claim there are more then 2 genders and man and women don't exist.... kkkkkkk Now Global Warming? If i remember cientists have very diversed opinions when it comes to global warming ... In 1900s there was the Global cooling hoax , now its not different. Panic makes money

Machines that we gonna create in the future gonna replace us.... Need to stop thinking we are the cause of everything , there are bad times and good times , our planet is not different , its just the life , the temperature of our planet have been like this for thousands of years , more hotter , more colder... We kill 2 trees and plant 3

"Now Global Warming? If i remember cientists have very diversed opinions when it comes to global warming ... In 1900s there was the Global cooling hoax , now its not different. Panic makes money" terrible edit. that's completely false. There's a 99% consensus in the scientific community and every single major research institution in the world has the official stance that catastrophic anthropogenic climate change is real. So called scientists who deny this are usually not qualified to do so, don't publish their denial as peer reviewed research and they're funded by oil money. trans rights will lead to robots replacing us? I don't follow.

Instead of being spoon fed information, go and research climate change for yourself and determine how big a part humans are actually playing. Climate change is the natural state of our planet. The climate is always changing. We might be affecting it, but by a tiny percentage. And I mean really tiny. Just like the whole transgender crap and extreme feminism, it's just more unimportant stuff to keep us occupied and distracted from the real issues (economics). Also I have zero clue wtf "rightist" means at this point.

You don't have the technology, resources or qualifications to 'research' it yourself. Just like in the case of physics, chemistry and biology. This really isn't a matter of opinion or personal research. Learn your place, if you have no education in the subject matter your opinion is nil.
2019-02-22 13:43
In his defense, by research he could mean collect data from other researchers/ documents and base your opinion off the information you've acquired.
2019-02-22 14:34
Such a dangerous attitude to have my friend. While what you're saying has some merit, blindly submitting to so-called authority is not really a good idea either. You can research quite a lot online. You can never be 100% sure about anything, but to me the whole climate charade looks like opium for the masses. The new religion. And honestly, you have plenty of academics and scientists who disagree. It's just that they get labelled as "deniers" in the media and subsequently ignored. When things go down that way, you can be damn sure that what they're saying has some merit. I started getting suspicious about the holocaust for the exact same reason. Using idiotic labels such as "holocaust denier" is a clear sign that something is not right. I have no idea what happened but I sure as hell don't trust the official version, written by the winners, either. Same goes for "9/11 truthers". Assigning a derogatory term to a group allows you to condemn and ignore instead of acknowledging their position.

I'm not getting my info from random websites on the internet or fox/cnn news. I'm a 4th year physics student. And while there are some who disagree the vast majority DO agree. Why follow the few? >99% agree so why trust the few? I'm not blindly submitting, I've weighed my options and rate the vast majority of scientists opinion higher than rightwing nutjobs who have business interests in fossil fuel industries. Now that you deny holocaust I know you are trolling so we are done here. Good bye!
2019-02-22 15:27
A good example of higher education increasing sheepishness and groupthink instead of decreasing it. Quite sad really, for all of us.
2019-02-22 15:35
You are completely fucking retarded. There should be 0 diversity of opinion if one opinion is literally correct. Doctors have groupthink about believing medicine works. Businesspeople have groupthink about thinking marketing works. Astronomers are such sheep, nobody even believes in geocentric astronomy anymore! You know why higher education leads us to "groupthink"? Because it leads us to the truth.
2019-02-22 16:00
Uhm... wow. That's a lot of targets to aim for, I don't even know where to start. Do you think big pharma is doing a good job right now? There's a rampant opioid epidemic in North America right now, go read about it. That's "doctors" whoring out for profit. What about pumping energetic kids full of adderall? You think that's wise? I could go on and on about this particular topic. Yeah all businessmen agree that marketing works, and I don't disagree. It works so well that it's scary. But is it a positive force in the world? I would suggest it's one of the most destructive forces in the world today. But hey, let's trust the "businessmen" to lead the way for us. I'm sure they have our best interests at heart. I'm going to appropriate your last words friend. I'm going to paraphrase it as "groupthink leads to the truth" because that's basically what you said. I'm going to carry that with me and warn other people with it. Thank you.
2019-02-22 16:09
You're completely incapable of perceiving arguments for what they are and honestly responding to them. You're so stuck into your ideology of not being a "sheep" that you turn every opposing thought into something incoherent. > Do you think big pharma is doing a good job right now? There's a rampant opioid epidemic in North America right now, go read about it. That's "doctors" whoring out for profit. What about pumping energetic kids full of adderall? You think that's wise? I could go on and on about this particular topic. The argument you're attempting to make here is that it's theoretically possible for doctors to "agree" on something and have it be wrong (doctors don't agree on opioids at all). However, the argument you were originally making was that higher education was increasing "groupthink" and that's why there is a scientific consensus on climate change. I did NOT say that just because a large number of people agree on something that it's automatically true. But you've created a binary position in your head where it's either lots of scientists believing something means it's true or you should never listen to anything scientists say. The fundamental problem with your belief is you clearly think it's a problem for a large number of people to agree on something. But a large number of people SHOULD agree on something if it's TRUE. >Yeah all businessmen agree that marketing works, and I don't disagree. It works so well that it's scary. But is it a positive force in the world? I would suggest it's one of the most destructive forces in the world today. But hey, let's trust the "businessmen" to lead the way for us.

I'm going to paraphrase it as "groupthink leads to the truth" because that's basically what you said. I'm going to carry that with me and warn other people with it. Thank you. No it's not "basically what I said." I said you PERCEIVE there to be a groupthink in these areas because you do not understand that people should agree on believing true facts. If you asked people if grass is green, and most said yes, that's not groupthink. That's people stating facts. And that's my point, and that's what you're clearly incapable of understanding. And that complete incapability to understand that basic concept is what has led you to be a holocaust denying moron.

2019-02-22 16:45
No, it doesn't. I explained how what you said was stupid, and then I insulted you, because what you said was stupid and you are stupid. You could try to understand how you're being stupid, and learn to become a person that isn't stupid. But as it is I'm just a person who likes stating facts. Fact: Climate change is real Fact: The holocaust happened Fact: you are stupid Fact: It's OK for everyone to agree on facts like grass being green. That's not group think, it's people believing obvious truths.
2019-02-22 16:48
This is becoming tedious, I don't really claim to know anything. Just pointing a few things out, like we should think for ourselves and not just follow blindly. I listen to plenty of scientists and I value science, but I have a brain of my own that works quite well and it's helpful for filtering information. You have a severe problem with your ego, it shows in the way you write. For your own sake, open up a bit. I know it's painful and scary to question widely held truths, but you should do it anyway. Not to say you should always believe the opposite of course. Anti vax for example is just stupid. The holocaust kinda happened, but not exactly the way it's portrayed in western books. Climate change is real, but human contribution is vastly exaggerated. I am not stupid, something you'd realize if we could exchange ideas in a friendly manner. You make that impossible by calling people retards and morons at first glance. You'd rather be secure in that your beliefs are the truth than listen to other angles. That's a lot more stupid to me.

I said it's not important because the future technology will solve the climate change issue. It's similar to deadly diseases in older era and the invention of vaccine. The point is, I prefer for the government to prioritize more urgent problems. Also, humankind will find their way to solve long-term disasters like climate change (there's a law for this).

If you supported Hillary, you've actively support the destruction of the entire planet in a shorter time span as she was pro-hostility towards Russia, both countries whom has Nuclear Bombs. Retarded logic by you, expected by leftist scum with no common sense. Trump wasn't voted by his voters due to the climate, but because Hillary would have a much worse effect in a short span, climate change takes years and a new persident can easily attempt a better job after his first term, but having Hillary throwing nukes with russia is not something that can be fixed if it happends during the term.. because we won't be alive.
2019-02-22 18:32
The vast majority of republicans, the right-wing party in my country, claims their current approval and support of trump. That's not voting for the lesser of two evils or supporting him in comparison to hillary. That's supporting him. They like him and support him. Hillary Clinton would've made a horrible president. If you think she would've nuked Russia you're completely delusional. If you seriously think hostile rhetoric towards another nuclear power is dangerous, you should be more concerned about trump literally referring to nukes while antagonizing Kim Jong Un (of course to think trump would nuke NK would also be delusional).

The impact of mankind is the rational discussion. By the way apocalyptic thinking is of all ages. The world will survive.
2019-02-22 18:44
Not everyone knows the climate is changing, and not everyone that knows is doing anything about it. It's a simple fact that the climate is changing and it's a simple fact that human activity is a huge influence pushing that, and it's a simple fact that if this trend continues ongoing the planet will become much more difficult for human life to inhabit. All of the above things are true. The problem with the right is whether they deny the facts itself or not the vast majority of them refuse to do anything about it.

imo where i live you'd be hard pressed to even find a rational person who denies that the climate is changing. we are used to having a winter with 2 meters of snow this years it snowed three days. here it is common knowledge. stop trying to pile all people with right views on the same pile. start off with what is your definition of right wing? even your democratic party is right wing according to european standards. to me right/left is a measure of economic views, ranging from state controlled market to totally free market (this is right wing). then you have authoritarian and libertarian scales and many more like globalist/nationalist. i'm sure you know the cross-political spectrum it's a much better view of this. a classical argument is: was hitler left or right wing? to me the obvious answer is hitler was extreme-left because his economical system was a variation on socialism. what is your answer?
2019-02-22 19:00
The idea that the democratic party is EU left wing when you view left and right as an economic spectrum (with left being government controlled markets and right being free market) is absurd. Democrat is far left in any continent. They want to regulate everything out of the ass and make people more reliant on the government
2019-02-22 23:57

far left means state controlled economy without private corporations. then you got mixed economy with all its forms ranging from very left <current china> to centrist <democratic party US>. it is hard to compare the economic regulation of hyphotetical democratic policy and actual european policy since corporations are also very regulated here but the international market is relatively unregulated. also all policy is the result of a political process so you cannot just take one side of the isle and pretend that its policies will be 100% enacted. just that the political process in USA is very black and white with basically two parties fighting over controll over certain institutions while in europe the political process is much more refined <this has disadvantages as well like slow coalition forming of the government>. for example in europe you could have a nationalistic government against regulation and taxes and STILL have greens on the same coalition to lobby for enviromental goals. for example in my country <in europe> when you are a starup business the government will help with your funding because this is sensical to do. utopian capitalism works very good on paper but at a given point monopolies are created who defy the principles of capitalism and destroy all smaller competition. this is where the government imo needs to step in to shield these small businesses in their infancy stage so that they at least have a fair shot to compete against gigantic corporations.
2019-02-23 09:36
Here are some questions How much are humans influencing climate change? What can we do about this climate change? How much can our action influence climate change, by what scale, and by what time period? How much will this action affect our economy? No rational person on the right denies climate change (it used to be global warming but then the temperatures dropped, showing that it was garbage so the word was changed), but its a question of how much do we affect it and how much can we change it? The Paris Climate Accord wasn't going to change a god damn thing (less than a degree celsius after 100 years?) but it was damn expensive (The French people are getting tired of it). Not to mention, we just had some record cold temperatures. With the climate changing and the Earth getting hotter (due to get cooler because of lower sun activity), don't you think we would stop setting record cold levels and our winters would be getting warmer?

>How much are humans influencing climate change? A lot, the climate would be changing much more slowly than right now. We're seeing the effects of tens of thousands of years in decades. > What can we do about this climate change? Minimize any activities that further climate change. > How much can our action influence climate change, by what scale, and by what time period? Depends how hard we go. If everyone decided it to be their number 1 priority, we could get to a much better position within a few years. That's not reality though, so we just have to do whatever we can. >How much will this action affect our economy? This is too important to even be something that's discussed, but once we develop the infrastracture required it shouldn't be too harmful. >No rational person on the right denies climate change The right has quite few "rational people." Whether you deny it or don't want to do anything about it regardless isn't very important to me. >Not to mention, we just had some record cold temperatures. With the climate changing and the Earth getting hotter (due to get cooler because of lower sun activity), don't you think we would stop setting record cold levels and our winters would be getting warmer? It actually makes the weather more extreme in general. This is a really bad argument regardless though, and it's strange you make this argument shortly after pretending not to question climate change.
2019-02-23 01:39
I do question climate change. I don't question whether it happens or not. I question how much humans cause it and how much humans affect it. >Minimize any activities that further climate change. Like what? Driving cars? Flying airplanes? Trains? Construction? We have to minimize these things? You don't think it will destroy the economy and kill people anyway by way of starvation (lack of work) >The right has quite few "rational people." Whether you deny it or don't want to do anything about it regardless isn't very important to me. I mean, the left is home to men who dress up as women and call themselves girls with iceberg sized adam's apples, and is the home to championing infanticide but sure, I'll take being the idiot who is skeptical about climate change than that. >Depends how hard we go. If everyone decided it to be their number 1 priority, we could get to a much better position within a few years. That's not reality though, so we just have to do whatever we can. Define "within a few years" How much is a few years and if you cannot put a specific finger on it, where is your source for this? What deal are you taking this information from? >This is too important to even be something that's discussed, but once we develop the infrastracture required it shouldn't be too harmful. It's not too important when you are making a suggestion that could annihilate our economy while only giving us negligible gains in Earth cooling. Everyone's screaming that the world's gonna end, but no one has yet proposed an effective deal that will do a lot of good without taking an axe to millions of jobs. Ignoring that, no one has proposed a deal that has a concrete estimate of cooling we can expect in a specific time frame.

Barizzy Obreezy, in his infinite wisdom, shut down the biggest Nuclear Waste disposal site in the USA and stood in the way of our most viable carbon neutral energy source: nuclear power (also sold control over about 20% of NA's uranium to Russia) braindead hippies on the left think windmills and solar panels can fuel this country's economy, pointing to Germany (either ignorant or undeterred by the fact that kW/h cost is more than double over there thanks to their energy policies) while NIMBY democrats like Harry Reid and Obummer have taken multiple opportunities to stifle development of nuclear power in the USA. Yet they and their ilk want to pat themselves on the back when they sign masturbatory climate accords that allow China to continue dumping carbon into the air at levels that would make a West Virginian coal tycoon blush. How's that for "doing nothing"? You can't have it both ways.

2019-02-23 21:41
If you seriously don't think I know what point you're trying to make lmao. The point you're trying to make is moronic, because what I'm saying is actually demonstrably true and what you're saying isn't. Based on the generally agreed upon worldwide principles of left and right wing politics the democrats are a right wing party. It's entirely possible for a country to be mainly controlled by two right wing parties. That's why people in america who actually identify with leftist policy such as supporters of bernie sanders do not identify with the democratic party.
2019-02-23 22:25
Also, its really ironic that a leftist, the party of transgenders who believe that if you cut your balls off or stick a cock over your vagina, you are now a man/woman, is trying to attack the right on science. Slicing your dick off doesnt change your chromosomes. Also the party of abortion which tries to argue that a living baby is just a bundle of cells (as if humans arent just a bundle of cells). I digress

Ok. Well I think if those in charge of their treatment want to it's a good idea. Keeping someone alive in a vegetative state simply makes the love ones feel better and does nothing for the person who is already effectively dead.

2019-02-23 01:44
That does not mean that you can change your gender biologically.
2019-02-23 02:26
You cannot change your sex, but you can use your gender which is a social construct

2019-02-23 18:10
I'm not crying about anything. It is pretty disheartening though to see people so shortsighted to fall for propaganda by the rich that control them to not believe in simple facts such as climate change, thereby causing horrible long-term effects for humanity.
2019-02-23 18:12
>Fall for the propaganda by the *Rich* >Proceeding to believe Al Gore's propaganda. Wonderful.
2019-02-23 18:16
You think al gore is the only person who ever talked about climate change? I haven't thought about al gore in probably months until you brought him up. You realize when al gore started talking about climate change it was based on evidence and research that was already done at the time right? And yea, conservatives are absolutely falling for propaganda. PragureU is a big conservative media outlet with huge funding numbers. They have huge funding numbers because they're funded by people who started a fracking company. Then they make youtube videos telling you how fracking is good actually. Then conservatives believe that.
2019-02-23 18:19
I'm using your own words and logic, loser. Al Gore didn't say climate change, he said Global Warming, and NYC will be under water by 2015. What the F is PragureU?? I'm not Cuckservative btw, they are nothing but Zionist and allowing you leftards to breed. They are cucks.
2019-02-23 18:22
No you're really not using my own words. I don't care about al gore. I think you went into this discussion trying to GOTCHA on al gore but you don't know what to do now that I claim over and over my life and positions would be exactly the same if al gore never even existed.
2019-02-23 18:24
I don't give a shit about your life and position. You said propaganda by rich, I gave you the propaganda by rich. And you were right, Al Gore wasn't not the only rich that spreads the propaganda, thank you!! Case closed, loser. Get over yourself. You couldn't accomplish anything without big government and corporatists. You're more right wing than most right wingers LMFAO. Cuckservatives and leftists are going down fast...

2019-02-23 18:05
What part of science proves or claims gender is not a social construct?
2019-02-23 18:07
Biology does you dumbass. How is it possible to be this dumb?
2019-02-23 18:08
Biology doesn't claim anything, it's a field of study. And there is a biological component to sex, and sort of a biological component to gender as it can have to do with your brain makeup. Sex and gender continue to be different terms used to describe different things.
2019-02-23 18:10
No sex and gender do not mean 2 different things, which is why they have been used interchangeably in legal documents.
2019-02-23 18:11
In the past they were, and now gender has come to mean something else. This word definition thing is just a smokescreen for your real issue with the matter and you hide behind it because you have no good arguments. If trans people had made up a completely new word to describe the social construction of gender but didn't use the word gender you still wouldn't support or agree with them, despite them not "denying biology" by the definition of a word changing over time. So why don't you drop the shit and confront your real issue with the matter?
2019-02-23 18:15
Sure lets address the real issue. These people are mentally ill, they have a lifetime suicide rate of 41% whether or not they transition, which is higher than any group in the history of the planet. These people need help and telling them that there is nothing wrong with them is not helping. Should we start doing this with other mental disorders? Should we be telling people with schizophrenia that there is nothing wrong with them and they are completely fine?
2019-02-23 18:18
The suicide rate lowers after transition, and the mental health professionals studying transgender people have determined for now that transitioning is the best treatment available.
2019-02-23 18:26
Not according to the Anderson School of UCLA, with their study, they found that it makes no difference in suicide rates after transition.
2019-02-23 18:28
You leftards are the most eurocentric losers on the planet. Tell me what other languages or cultures accept your definition of "sex and gender"??
2019-02-23 18:15
Wikipedia! Score! Have you read your own bs? Where is the separate definition of Sex and Gender?
2019-02-23 18:19
Biology determines whether a human's chromosomal and anatomical sex is male, female, or one of the uncommon variations on this sexual dimorphism that can create a degree of ambiguity known as intersex.[4][5] However, the state of personally identifying as, or being identified by society as, a man, a woman, or other, is usually also defined by the individual's gender identity and gender role in the particular culture in which they live. Not all cultures have strictly defined gender roles.[6][7][8]
2019-02-23 18:20
Leftard can even comprehend a simple question.
2019-02-23 18:26
2 Genders, Male or Female and this is determined by your chromosomes.
2019-02-23 18:09
Male and female are two of the sexes, and you're not including intersex people. There are unlimited numbers of possible genders as gender is a social construction and plenty of cultures have had more than two genders in the past.
2019-02-23 18:11
Science disagrees with you.
2019-02-23 18:11
No it doesn't.
2019-02-23 18:16
Slavery has been used in the past by a lot of cultures should we bring that back?
2019-02-23 18:15
No. Any more questions?
2019-02-23 18:17
Thanks for admitting that your basis is wrong. Just because it was seen in other cultures does not make it a good thing.
2019-02-23 18:19
You're still trying to argue with me about word definition. A fundamental basis of your claim is not even a prescriptive definition (how gender should be defined) but a descriptive one (you just keep claiming over and over that I'm wrong about how gender is defined). So by citing to you societies that recognize a distinction between sex as a biological aspect and gender as a social construction I argue with you on the descriptive axis (gender as a social construction apart from sex is a long-standing historical phenomenon).
2019-02-23 18:23
I'm telling you that it does not matter what other cultures have done in the past because they are wrong. Science clearly says that there are only 2 genders and they are determined by chromosomes. As for intersex, we do not teach science based on outliers. We're told that people have 10 fingers and toes but there are people born with 9 or whatever it may be.
2019-02-23 18:26
That's not how I'm using the word gender, and you clearly didn't understand my argument about prescriptive and descriptive definitions.
2019-02-23 18:28
Because you are not making an argument, all you keep saying is gender and sex are different because some stupid cultures in the past didn't have 2 genders. Sex and Gender have been used interchangeably in legal documents, meaning that they are the same thing.

Does not matter if it's real or not. Nothing he can do about it so why bother? I like Trump but he's not a God. This is fully a scientific problem don't go to a president. Maybe it's Trumps fault we are not on Mars yet or Trump never cured cancer.

The rich companies make the pollution and my guess is there is no chance they are going to stop. It's also not fair to third world countries because the first world countries have been doing it for over 100 years. Some third world countries have not even hit the industrial age yet. It's like some countries have thousands of nukes and new countries that want them can't get any. I'm not a fan of third world countries but fair is fair. The only way America could do anything is by taking over the world and then making laws about it but I still believe the damage is already done. We just need to work on fixing the problems we already did. All that crap is still up there in our atmosphere.
2019-02-24 20:37
We have blown up nukes on land in the sea and in space just to see what's up. Eventually they will test something that causes a chain reaction and it's over. I honestly don't care about the future of humanity, I will be long gone and you only live once.
