We would in all likelyhood never have to nuke Mecca, same way we never had to nuke Moscow. Just the threat of it would be enough to make them change their thinking. Remember, the terrorist that causes Mecca's destruction by attacking the west shames his family and clan forever. Completely different...

But if there is a problem its a cultural thing and randomly bombing cities and symbols right left and centre is the stupidest most inappropriate non-solution I have ever heard. It cured the Germans and Japanese. That's a completely different situation. Japan and Germany were sovereign nations with ...

There is a lot of insanity in this thread. If there was a united alliance of Arabs amassing warplanes to bomb america I could at least understand the logic of bombing Mecca. But this simply isn't the case. You've got a few highly publicised acts of terrorism by a couple of muslims on your home soil ...

Hmm... there was possibly an element of truth in that classical values post about sexual repression and violent societies, but its worth mentioning that sexual preoccupation can also causes violence aswell as sexual abuse. There are plenty of serial killers and rapist that are anything but celibate,...

Greg De Temmerman used to work a few offices away from me. I remember an experiment on our machine where diamond was shoved straight into the MAST plasma using a reciprocating probe.

Josh, You must have gotten your information from the IPCC. http://www.eia.doe.gov/cneaf/electricity/epa/figes1.html http://www.eia.doe.gov/cneaf/electricity/epa/images/figes1.jpg Of course that is just electricity. Oh, I see how they justified their statement. Take wind at 3.1%, take a capacity fac...

People are producing ideas with vision, just not nations or people involved in politics.

I think it could be said that many who work in google have vision for instance (and their looking at you!!)

I'd say your seeing patterns that don't exist. I don't think the government have any grand plans to seize control of everything. They just think they know better and bit by bit regulate, regulate, regulate. Each individual regulation seems sensible at the time and for the purposes envisaged, but the...

Replying to all of you READ THE LINK!!!!! This link states that global sea-temperatures have actually risen since 1998 and the total ammount of heat including the sea and land has steadily gone up. The link states that the reason it got cooler on land was simply due to a transfer of energy from the ...

Just because I wasn't there doesn't mean I'm not reaping the benefit. If my prosperity is based on the suffering of generations of Africans, how can I say I don't owe anything? How much benefits are we reaping? A bowl full of bananas and a bar of chocolate are hardly the basis of all Western econom...

Also I think a significant proportion of the AGW crowd wish to use climate change as a way of reducing scarcity for the world's poor

That would be a gigantic conspiracy of wacko proportions. Also consider game theory, if there are a load of seperate nations the nation that enters into post scarcity first will have the power advantage over the others. I could believe that global warming is about creating a crisis that enables poli...

There will always be scarcity because people are infinitely greedy. If their not moaning about the price of houses, they'll be moaning about the price of planets..
