global warming is a conspiracy of doughface liberal commies, i'll tell ya what. :guns: :guns:
Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

If the majority scientific view is that we need to reduce carbon emissions, then isn't it reasonable that governments should follow this advice?

happened upon this and within the first 15 mins or so there is a very important piece about how information should be treated in science (look out for the garden)


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Cool video Manapa

Excuse the pun :)

'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -
