    :laugh:

    And we wonder why climate change doesn't get addressed when it's so easy for someone to stick his head in the sand.

    Typical watsoning right here making things so black and white. Either live in near starvation giving everything to help the poor or you completely validate that all people are super competitive and only look out for their best interests.

    The nuance that you always seem to miss in your arguments is not all people are the same level of competitive. Not everyone is trying to be a CEO or run a country or are you suggesting these people are being forced to be noncompetitive?

    If I follow your logic, everyone is competitive and acts only in their self interests, then I believe you just gave yourself the ultimate self own.

    You are a person who realized they couldn't compete with the super talent in a local state agency job, setting aside your inability to make it in corporate america. So you joined the army reserves hoping to get disability as your only long term prospects for financial security. Really shooting for the top there aren't you?

    So you're misrepresenting my argument and telling me I'm wrong by arguing what I'm actually arguing?

    Nuance was the very point in my post. We are all competitive on some level and willing to let others suffer for our own enjoyment/benefit. GoodForAnother feels good about himself but at the same time ignores how his actions impact the survivability of others.

    Very few people are ever going to willingly live the life of a Franciscan monk and instead most will be forced to do what is best for the world. It seems like you agree, but you're telling me i'm wrong.

    This is a terrible example of reasoning.

    If I believed everyone only acts in their self-interest, why would I have joined the military or work in the public sector? Especially considering it appears you've followed my posting enough to certainly know I turned down financial incentives to select the MOS I wanted, infantry.

    How poor do you believe the public sector is that our only hope for financial security is to obtain disability? It seems you're incapable of picking up on sarcasm.

    I read it as if we don't do something by 2000 then we're gonna be fucked not as the world would end in 2000.

    Not that it even matters. The exact timeline isn't really all that important when we absolutely know climate change is real and what the eventual results are, whenever that happens to be.

    Posted this in another thread, but this is the first January since weather started being recorded in 1882 that Cincinnati had no measurable snow.

    The last several years have had the warmest February on record in much of the middle of the country and 2019 was the wettest year on record for a lot of the same. Snow used to stick around all winter and that never happens anymore. Now it's questionable whether people could even safely ice fish.

    its still fantastic that TheChatch unironically started a thread deeming global warming a hoax and is now too much of a coward to post because he told us all his name while bragging about some shitty fucking sandwich

    Funny thing is local agencies talk about needing to make contingencies for permanent weather changes, especially along the Missouri river flood corridor, but they can't say global warming or climate change because of idiots.
