I know that the Green Party of Canada used to support nuclear. It is cleaner than coal, but it's still not clean and in reality we don't know if the stored nuclear waste will ever bite us in the ass before we're able to figure out a more permanent solution. There may never be a better solution: launching it into space comes with the risk of crashing it instead. Arguing that nuclear has no practical downsides is like arguing that climate change isn't real. The science doesn't back you up. Renewable sources of energy are the future. They have the potential to meet our needs forever with limited impact to the environment. We should be investing the billions of dollars into those instead.

It appears there is actually news about nuclear. The provincial governments of Saskatchewan, Ontario, and New Brunswick want to invest billions of dollars into nuclear reactor technology that won't be ready for another 10 years, and will ultimately produce extremely dangerous waste that is difficult to contain. The Greens argue that investing that same money into renewable energies would have a faster and more effective benefit for combating climate change. I would tend to agree with them. There's a reason the planet isn't already full of nuclear reactors. Theory and practice are two different things. In practice accidents happen more often than is comfortable.

If CO2 output was really as big a concern as so many people claim, they would be willing to accept that nuclear waste will need to be handled within the next couple centuries as a trade off for humanity surviving that long. I've heard that newer nuclear technologies are potentially able to further deplete nuclear waste, so it may get to the point where the radioactivity can be fully eradicated and then that waste is not a hazard anymore. I don't agree that the current favorite renewable energy technologies are good enough yet to be our main energy sources. I don't even think a decade or two will be enough for them to develop. They will probably get there some day, but as the term "energy of the future" implies, they are not the energy of today because they're not able to meet the world's energy needs.

I had a black man tell me the other day that he is a "nigger", and he said he is not offended by the term. Technically, it was not an insult, but rather "nigger" referred to people that came from Nigeria, which were black people. When you really look at it, "cracker" refers to my skin colour (crackers are white) where as "nigger" refers to where one came from (which would be inaccurate if the black person was born in Canada or USA). I actually told the black man that he was not a "nigger", but was an American or Canadian, depending on his place of birth, period.

"okay boomer" is meant as an insult. It is used as a derogatory word referring to someone who is 55 years old or more (that is technically a "boomer").

In the end, any of these terms are all equally as insulting if you use them as a derogatory term. I prefer to refer to people as human beings and use their real name, not some label. I don't assume someone with a dark skin is from Nigeria, so I do not call them a "nigger", nor do I like to even refer to anyone by their skin colour to be honest; the whole idea of someone being different due to race or colour is absolute nonsense and honestly gets me quite angry most of the time. I prefer to go with what Martin Luther King Jr said when he said that everyone should be judged by the quality of their character, not the colour of their skin.

In the case of "boomer", not by their age. An insult is an insult, they are all equally as bad.

As for CO2, more CO2 = a greener planet. Period.

2019 has been a year that has set record COLD temps. Australia just had a snowfall at the start of their summer for crying out loud. Japan did as well! Warming?! Sorry, not interested in the rants from global warming alarmists.

Oh, and Climate Change documentary filmmakers just got stuck in arctic ice... AGAIN! ;D!!! ;D 8-)

If I remember, tomorrow I'll cite articles from credible scholarly, credible, and peer-reviewed articles that mention climate change results in greater extremes (i.e., snow during summer), but none of you will be able to access them because you don't have access to these sources. Too bad, go back to school. You need it.

Also since my my post got Last Post'd (tm) I'm gonna use this space to replicate it:

I don't to go to a liberal school to be exposed to environmental propaganda, we get plenty of that in the MSM. When green technology is good enough and cheap enough to actually be competitive with traditional energy sources, that's when the world will make the switch.

I'd rather say that the meaning of Latin "niger" - "black", and its descendants (e.g. "negro"-/a in Spanish) might have played a role here...

Here's a lesson on spin. Oftentimes it's pretty subtle.

"Poll: Biden leads Democratic field, Warren drops to third place"

versus

"Poll: Biden leads Democratic field, Sanders rises to second place"

Both mean the exact thing. The first one completely ignores Sanders. Who counts 1, 3, 2? Editors do if it'll help them with their bias!

Which one was the one used by The Hill? The first, of course. And Sanders isn't mentioned until the second paragraph.

Sanders (or Warren I suppose) would be able to beat Trump, Biden stands no chance, it's unfortunate the Democrats didn't learn from their historic loss (i.e., winning popular vote but losing EC again).

Sadly, most Democrats are just as stupid as the Republicans. They'll vote for Biden because he was VP, despite not having any platform to stand on, and no qualifications besides being VP, taking money from billionaires. He won't tax the rich, they're his friends. He's of the part of the democratic party that is just as corrupt as the republicans are.

It's amazing how some people think the Democrats and Republicans have a bad history, but Socialists are A-OK.

If you think any mainstream Democrat is a socialist you're just stupid. I mean seriously, every time this argument goes where none of you can even define socialism even though it's like Politics 100.

Sanders may identify as a socialist personally, but his public policies are not socialist, they're band-aids to capitalism. Show me his policy that says workers should own the means of production.

raynebc thinks socialism is taxing the poor rich people's hard earned money and giving it to 'entitlement' programs

The redistribution of wealth for the sake of "fairness", nationalization of something as big as health care and the equalization of outcomes are major goals of Socialism. They're also bullet points on the DNC wishlist. When somebody argues that a big-government/Socialism chimera isn't Socialism, I'm not buying it.

You hate socialism not because of its ideas, but because you were filled with anti-USSR propaganda your whole life. Essentially the elite that control every aspect of your life told you what to think. Told you that the way it is is best for you. And that's good enough for you? Aren't they the ones with the most to gain keeping things their way, and the most to lose if things change? If that's not bias I don't know what is.

Socialism is not the USSR. It's not China. It's not 1940s Germany. It's not the "enemy".

Socialism is simply a system designed to keep things fair. To empower the people instead of the ruling class. Everything your school / media / government taught you about it was dictated by the ruling class. Freedom is the lie. We're just pawns to provide for the ruling class, and held down so we can't rise up. Wake up!

I don't agree with your propaganda, Bam. You'll just have to get it through your thick head that not everybody believes it's the job of the government or some other entity to steal from one person to coddle another.

In related news, Bernie recently announced that he wants to nationalize the Internet. If that loonbag ever becomes president he'll trash the country if Congress is dumb enough to go along with his crazy policy ideas.

raynebc, you are the biggest hypocrite around.

You think it's okay for rich people to steal from the poor via monopolies, extortion, price-gouging - anti-union laws, etc...

...but it's not ok for the poor to take the money THEY EARNED back from the rich.

What ever. Wipe the orange makeup off your face. Wake up.
