    I guess that would depend on the child. A future Einstein, Noble, etc, it's a real tragedy. A Hitler, Obama, Clinton, Mao, Castro, etc, then it is a blessing in disguise.

    If you, or he, or pretty much anyone REALLY felt that way, you'd be the most pro-life anti-abortion in the world.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah, my immediate reaction was 'Oh great. Which industry is the EPA going to try and kill next?' Read a bit more, and it's big oil and the automotive industry under pointless attack again. It's not like we aren't paying $3.50 or more a gallon for gas. Oh wait. We are, and . . . .

    “Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

    Well, hell, they sure are getting there, aren't they?

    Oh great. Gas you can't afford to buy and food you can't afford to buy, but at least you can get government hand outs. You certainly have interesting ideas about how to grow the economy, and what makes for a good economy. Chalk that right up with the rest of your ideology as not being in touch with reality.

    Never in my life have I ever experienced an administration such as this, who so carelessly, so easily, so arrogantly causes the cost of living to go up on the ordinary man, so easily spends the common man's money for him, without even asking permission. Yeah, that's arrogant.

    Of course, this is nothing new to liberal / progressives. It is their belief, and you can see on display here in this very forum thread, that they know everything better than everyone else, and the rest who have a differing opinion to their should just STFU (a great way to stimulate and drive discussion BTW), when the reality is so very far from it, in that they have a distinct lack of experience with reality, especially those liberal / progressives in government.

    Pretty soon it's going to be their turn to STFU, and of course then they'll support vigorous and endless debate on every real or imagined point of their.

    Only if I was God, would I be able to actually know. For us mere mortals, roll the dice, take your chances.

    I am pro-life/anti-abortion, btw. But I think environment plays a lot in what we become, not just genetics. Oh, sure, you cannot teach someone with an 90 IQ to be a top notch scientist/researcher, but you can take someone with a 190 IQ and make them into a blithering idiot.

    Well put friend...I couldn't have summed it up better.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

It is impossible to definitively link one type of pollution, much less a single component, to any particular case because there is not way to study those only exposed to a single source. And that is before they take into account a genetic predisposition to a particular cancer or disease.
    That's not how it works. Stop commenting on scientific research.

    Learn about the scientific method before telling others not to comment. Particularly, consider what "peer" review actually means.

    The scientific method does not require perfect isolation of every variable, because that's impossible.

    True, nor did I say that. However, to scientifically verify a result of a particular process, it must be isolated from other process/data which could generate the same results. Otherwise, you cannot prove that that process or item is a causal factor. A researcher looking at whether a particular particle cause a particular disease, then the study must be set up to isolate any other factor that would cause the same disease. They wouldn't have to isolate it from, say, the herpes, but anything that can cause a "false positive" has to be removed or the data is corrupted.
