    Synoia said, “You ignore the free ride for the pollution from the manufacture of solar panels.”

    PV power would cut air pollution—including the greenhouse gases that cause climate change—by nearly 90 percent if it replaced fossil fuels.

    if even 1 million gallons of fresh water a week magically appeared in California their water problems would likely be solved.

    Annual water usage in CA is roughly 651,702,000,000,000 gallons. One million gallons spilled on the freeway from auto exhaust is somewhat insignificant.

    Criminy, if those eyes move any farther apart he’ll turn into a Dover Sole.

    But seriously, he just needs to Find The Lord. Buy a box of Tebow’s Sanctimonious Anti-Glare Patches and wear them for two weeks. Cry at a news conference. You know the drill.

    A long time ago on a board of directors far far away I learned that a personal attack is SOP when the establishment is arguing with The Help. Typically it indicates that there is no substance to their argument. Serwer is establishment to the core; Greenwald is, to them, a DFH.

    I carry no brief for GG, but IMHO Serwer made a completely uncalled-for remark and GG hyperbolically slapped him right back. The term “flacker” is either an insult (it implies insincerity) or an accusation that GG is Snowden’s PR agent, not a reporter with a source. Good on yer, GG.

    That said, as a long time TBogger I feel that somehow I can continue reading and enjoying this blog even if I don’t always agree with a post. Bluewombat and his little friends sit on a Silver Salute for all I care.

    Would it be too much to ask that commenters have a limit of X posts per thread? It’s fucking annoying to hear “I know you are but what am I?” on a infinite loop.

    True dat. Get in a dispute with the payee and PayPal will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Use a credit card and the credit card co. will sometimes go to bat for you.

    “Bruin Republicans at UCLA”? Not as remarkable as, say, Bruin Republicans at Vassar. Plus also too, Elena is another one of those poor people who fell into the arms of the right because of the “extremely liberal, closed-minded [sic] area” in which she grew up. Don’t you see that merely being liberal turns people into conservatives? Or Whiny-Ass Titty Babies. But I repeat myself.

    If it weren’t that this woman is dangerous, like a rusty garden rake (and with a similar IQ), I’d feel sorry for her. Can you imagine how empty she must be to allow herself to be filled up with college Republicanism and a gig at Breitbart? The abyss has truly looked into her.

    Oscar Baby Leroy posits:

    Why is this posted at Firedoglake?

    Answer any of the questions below and I’ll tell you.

    What is the essence of existence?
    Who am I? What is my true nature/essence? What is my true identity?
    What is my greater purpose? How should I live my life?
    What is death? What happens when we die?
    Is there a god, and, if so, what is her nature?
    Why did W.C. Fields hate me so much?

    Criminy! Apparently the Church Lady’s Eggs did not all waste their sweetness on the desert air. Could it be that she married an Underpass Troll?

    I must apologize – I thought *you* were Nick Bostrom. It would have been helpful if your first post had mentioned the ‘more dangerous’ risks instead of simply dismissing the threat level of global warming as “total nonsense.”

    One scenario is that the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere turns out to be a strongly self-reinforcing feedback process. Maybe this is what happened on Venus, which now has an atmosphere dense with CO2 and a temperature of about 450 C. Hopefully, however, we will have technological means of counteracting such a trend by [...]

    Strangely, one of my previous cars was a zero-features Civic, which I loved. All my cars up until the Prius were stick (Peugeot, two Beemers, two Hondas). That said, I have 99,449 miles on this Prius and it’s probably the best car I’ve ever owned. I’ve got economy *and* electric windows *and* A/C. When I got it, there weren’t any super econo diesels, so I’ll take all that gas money I’ve saved over the last 9 years and buy a first class ticket to Germany and rent one.

    Down in Oz for vacation. Walked by a store called “LoveSac.” Apparently they make beanbags so large they work as loveseats. Apparently. I report, you decide.
