    Yeah, sums up the value of THAT argument.
    The Consensus Project points out that if you wanted to show the actual proportion of the “debate” on global warming you would have 97 scientists convinced and 3 not. Doesn’t look quite the same does it?
    Especially since it is now clear that that was an underestimate. Actually, it would be 9,135 convinced to ONE who is not.

    The anti-science party rolls on.

    I think they have finally found common ground in believing that they know enough about the world to think that they have the ability to change it through sympathetic magic.
    Not that there is anything wrong with that…

    There are no planets remotely capable of supporting earth life forms within a distance that would allow the original inhabitants of the ship to ever reach them. It could be possible to build multigenerational ships that would allow their descendants to reach their destination in several thousand years.And, even if the planet is capable of supporting life, it is quite likely that it will have components that won’t allow our species to survive on it. Alternatively, it is also quite likely that if there are current residents they will blow it out of their sky.We better quit believing in science fiction that pictures earthings wandering from one habitable planet to another on each weekly episode and deal with the reality that we don’t have a back up planet. It we make this planet unable to support life, we die.

    This is sort of like what’s his name on Fox News who figured that God made the tides go in and out.

    This planet will never be stable, safe and free of various contaminants and microbial threats.
    No planet can be, unless you build it from scratch and carefully control its every parameter.
    Any advanced technological species will live in space habitats that are not bound to a single star and may travel freely, free of random bombardments and collisions from either energy events or material bodies.
    People who believe that they need to remain bound to their planet and die with it probably should, while the rest of us ascend to heaven bodily and inherit the stars.
    We will be sure to drop by and place a wreath of some sort to commemorate your passing when the big lake of fire swells up to swallow your planet and you are gone forever.
