Re: Fake news of the day

I only watch "the news" aka spurious local and overseas gossip, almost always 110% useless. The only part of interest is the 48 hr weather forecast. Youtube in Kanada. Yes. Google is on a crusade to turn yt into commercial drivel. They don't like channels that teach useful things to citize...

Re: Fake news of the day

Americans esp. isolationist Americans would find it hard to believe the lengths to which Cdn. media outlets are going in order to keep the "two minutes of hate" Trump narrative going. This phenomenon beggars the imagination. It is unprecedented even for mealy mouthed nets such as CBC. I si...

Re: "Nuclear Winter"

Air conditioning, drainage & air quality would be a constant problem. A colossal problem if the grid went down for significant periods. Geothermal relies on the byproducts of radioactive decay of certain elemental species down there. As a result, this is a finite amount of energy that is availab...

Re: "Nuclear Winter"

Then there is the still unsolved case concerning the disappearance of a Russian physicist who was doing work on the theory for the USSR. This was some time ago.

"Nuclear Winter"

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_winter Propaganda, science, or an unknown mixture of the two? This probably will not appeal to those younger than around 35 yrs. old. Apparently the old controversies just repell ppl. today! C:| One might suppose it does not compare with the heady "look a...

Re: Turkish tactical blunder ends ISIS oil income

Turkey is a mass of seemingly bizarre contradictions. I think they promote this image just to make their media political shell game easier. *then again it might just be that I am being stump headed.
