Climate scientist Stephen Schneider of NOAA in the October 1989 issue of Discover magazine admitted that climate scientists intentionally mislead the public about global warming as a means of forwarding their political goals:

>Stephen Schneider of the National Center for Atmospheric Research described the scientists’ dilemma this way:
>“On the one hand, as scientists, we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but—which means that we must include all the doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands, and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well.

>And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get some broad-based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This ‘double ethical bind’ we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”

Its accurately labeled and you have no evidence that it isn't. The only reason the image upsets you is that reveals the fact that thousands of years ago the world was warmer than it is today regardless having less atmospheric CO2.
why aren't you happy to learn that atmospheric CO2 isn't as dangerous as you've been told it is. learning that atmospheric CO2 is beneficial and doesn't cause global warming make you happy, why doesn't it? why does it make you angry instead?

what about all the other graphs that contradict it?
the only reason they upset you is that they reveal the fact that thousands of years ago the world was cooler than it is today while having less atmospheric CO2.

your premise of choosing data to support your view is literally what you're doing and this is simply undeniable regardless of whether global warming is happening or not.

Primates thrived when the atmosphere had 1500-2000ppm 30 million years ago. NASA has set the maximum permissible 24hour average CO2 level for ISS at 5500ppm. Urbanites spend their lives in atmospheres around 1000ppm and don't seem to mind.

Yeah... Let's not forget he lost that $400M too, and did it with his casinos, while every other casino had huge returns during the same period.

He also got that $400M by the crime of redbooking his taxes, to the tune of over half of it.
Someone calculate that, if he had simply put his money in an index fund, he would be worth far more than he is now, and it would all be his money, and not leveraged Russian crime money.


The bigger story here is not how stupid Trump is, but how corrupt the system is that keeps him going, and doesn't seem able to prosecute him.

North American grey squirrels have taken over England and wiped out the native red squirrel population. This demonstrates that the two populations can't live side by side and that if greys are permitted to encroach the reds will eventually be eliminated.
The greys now have a toehold in mainland Europe and are rapidly expanding their territory at the expense of the reds.
Should grey squirrels be holocausted in Europe in order to preserve the native red squirrel population?
Should the greys be exterminated in England in order to return the reds to their natural and rightful homeland?

I think there is a resurgence of anti-palestinianism because at this point in time Israel has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think Hamas is going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Israel is not going to be the monolithic society they once were in the last 70 years. Hamas is going to be at the center of that. It’s a huge transformation for Israel to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Hamas will be resented because of their leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Isreal will not survive.

Construction and validation of a scale for assessing critical social justice attitudes
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/sjop.13018
>DISCUSSION
>The studies also assessed how having critical social justice attitudes relates to well-being variables. Many authors have previously linked critical social justice attitudes to poorer mental well-being in their work implicitly, but have not studied them directly (e.g., Lukianoff & Haidt, 2018). In our samples (Study 1 and Study 2), having high CSJAS (critical social justice attitude scale) scores was linked to anxiety, depression, and a lack of happiness. However, Study 2 indicated that this lower level of mental well-being was mostly associated with being on the political left and not specifically with having a high CSJAS score. The association between lower mental health and supporting the political left is in line with what other studies have found prior to this one (Bernardi, 2021; Gimbrone et al., 2022).

tl;dr science has demonstrated conclusively that picrel is what you look like

Up until the 1940s it was a death sentence if you had to go to a hospital with something more than a broken bone.

And mostly you were doomed if you went to a doctor and consoomed the snake oil, because it most likely would have lead people to end up in the hospital.

It worked. The modern medicine is a fabrication, and most of the diseases it treats is cased by it in the first place. The heavy metals worked, the herbs worked because they are hyperaccumulators.

The average IQ of a college student has fallen by 17 points over the past 85 years

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2024.1309142/abstract

>Meta-analysis: On average, undergraduate students' intelligence is merely average

According to a widespread belief, the average IQ of university students is 115 to 130 IQ points, that is, substantially higher than the average IQ of the general population (M = 100, SD =15). We traced the origin of this belief to obsolete intelligence data collected in 1940s and 1950s when university education was the privilege of a few. Examination of more recent IQ data indicate that IQ of university students and university graduates dropped to the average of the general population. The decline in students' IQ is a necessary consequence of increasing educational attainment over the last 80 years. Today, graduating from university is more common than completing high school in the 1940s. Method. We conducted a meta-analysis of the mean IQ scores of college and university students samples tested with Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale between 1939 and 2022. Results. The results show that the average IQ of undergraduate students today is a mere 102 IQ points and declined by approximately 0.2 IQ points per year.

>Show me the loci.
>Show me the genes
Unnecessary. Can you teach a chimp calculus? No. Why? It is because their brain structure is inadequate to the task. And what determines their brain structure? It is the manner in which the neural tissue grows and develops. And how do the cells know how to do this? It is because of the genetic code in the cellular nuclei. Ergo, chimps cannot learn calculus because their genetics do not code for their brain structure and functioning to be capable of it.
>Furthermore
How did humans become ever more intelligent? It is through evolution. By what mechanism does evolution occur? The mechanism is the preservation and proliferation of genes that confer advantage. In horses, this might be speed. In wolves, it might be communal behaviors. In humans, among other factors, it was intelligence. In short, external selection pressures selected for greater and greater intelligence in humans, by selecting out the less intelligent over time.
>B-but, muh intelligence is driven by environmental factors only...or mostly!
How then do you account for how humans developed intellectual capacity far beyond other animals? Is it due to humans having a "spirit"? Are you a Lysenkoist? Are you a follower of Jean Baptiste de Lamarck? If you accept that humans evolved from creatures that had less intellectual capacity, it becomes absolutely inescapable that intellectual capacity itself is genetically based. Some part of one's genetics, in some manner, codes for maximum possible phenotypic intellectual ability. Whether or not one reaches that maximum may be due to environmental factors (you got head in the head too many times, there was no money to go to collage, you couldn't study because you got sent to war, etc.).
>Where are the genes then, huh?! Show me the genes!

the function has units of [thing]. the derivative introduces units of [thing * x^-n] and is multiplied by the part raised to a power that has units of [x^n], so the series ends up having units of [thing].
