    Your continual ignorance of weather related issues is astounding considering your job in the navy had something to do with... the... weather!

    Since I had to do the work to debunk your defense of Jim Bunning, I'll let you do the research to find this.

    You're not in any weather related job now, are you?

    It comes from much farther away than that.

    Let's see if Mr Vic can find it.

    This is funny:


    It's interesting to see Gov. Perry worried about "providing energy to the rest of the world".

    It's emissions from states like Texas that have killed many lakes in the Adirondack Park, in upstate New York. The EPA is the only group that can force these states to take actions so their "second hand smoke" doesn't choke other states, in effect.
    Good lord, LOL.

    You won't find cleaner, fresher air than in Texas. We also aren't experiencing a recession, excessive unemployment, tanking home values, high crime, or an unbalanced budget.

    Basically, other than for the military, Texas really doesn't need anything from anyone, and it has to tolerate the rest of the country leeching off of it.

    Re: Three States Sue EPA Over Global Warming Ruling

    [QUOTE=jamesrage;
    The EPA has responded to the lawsuits with a statement saying the "evidence of and threats posed by a changing climate are right before our eyes." >>

    scientist's words are not evidence, no matter what his status is or how many books he wrote.

    "EPA is proceeding with common sense measures that are helping to protect Americans from this threat while moving America into a leadership position in the 21st century green economy," the statement read. "Unfortunately, special interest and other defenders of the status quo are now turning to the courts in an attempt to stall progress. ...>>

    The EPA should be censored or jailed for using scare tactics to advance their own dooms day agenda. There's no way to get world wide reliable data that proves GM or even establish an average F or C temperature to work with... Far too many variables, inconsistancies, and tolarerances to contend with.

    Yeah, unless you try to breathe in Houston.

    Where do you think all that **** spewing out of all those stacks goes since, you've noticed that it's not hanging around over Texas?

    We also aren't experiencing a recession, excessive unemployment, tanking home values, high crime, or an unbalanced budget.

    Basically, other than for the military, Texas really doesn't need anything from anyone, and it has to tolerate the rest of the country leeching off of it.
    Yeah, so you say. Maybe Texas should secede and try to make it on her own, ehh? LOL! Oh, wait a minute, what would they do with all those teen pregnancies, DRUGS, illegal immigrants, etc. Puh-leeze.

    The Costs of Texas Teen Pregnancies. . .
    Medicaid paid for 173,226 deliveries in Texas, at an estimated total cost of $420 million (HMO deliveries are estimated). Approximately 10% of these deliveries were to teen mothers aged-13-17, at a cost of $41 million.

    How Often Does a Teenager in Texas Get Pregnant?

    * Every 10 minutes, a teen in Texas gets pregnant.
    * Every 10 hours, a 14-year-old teen gets pregnant.
    * Every 3 hours, a 15-year-old teen gets pregnant.
    * Every 1.5 hours, a 16-year-old teen gets pregnant.
    * Every 52 minutes, a 17-year-old-teen gets pregnant.
    * Every 35 minutes, an 18-year-old teen gets pregnant.
    * Every 28 minutes, a 19-year-old teen gets pregnant.


    What are the Outcomes?

    * Every 10 minutes a teen gives birth.
    * Every 48 minutes a teen has an abortion.

    ranking 12th in rates of foreclosures. Neither is something to brag about.

    So, please spare me the Holy Texas rant.

    Way to derail the thread with your bull****. Nothing in your post has anything to do with the EPA or GW.

    What are you, the thread monitor? I'd bet you were a Hall Monitor in elementary school with a spiffy shirt and note pad? What are you going to do, report me again? My understanding is that if you have a problem with a post, and you always do with all posts that debunk your position, then you should go run along, blow your whistle and tattle to a mod. But, until you are a mod ... well, talk to the hand...

    "You" complaining about someone derailing a thread is like Sarah Palin complaining that somebody else is getting free clothes.

    Again you add zero, as usual.

    Y'all must be competing for the same medal then.

    ---------------------------------

    Anyways, Texas - Alabama and Virginia are suing the EPA over GW Rulings? What next? Will we have California, NY and Massachusetts file amicus briefs supporting the case for global warming? Why don't you guys call me when states where the majority of people do not believe in magical explanations of the origins of life do something of the sort?
