    The military says sea levels are rising......give us more money.

    I'm convinced. How much more money do you feel we should give them?

    Hey One line TROLL, Quipster, NON-contributor..
    Is that your 1st or 30th Wise crack of the day?
    1000th of the Month?
    Round numbers will be fine.


    I propose we give the military what is needed to prevent Bases from Flooding (which they already are) and going under.. and take them seriously, as they/the Navy especially, is most affected.
    The Pentagon also realizes the potential for displacement/unrest due to rising sea level.
    Completely reasonable to the People are are most affected Interested, who can't afford to Deny Reality as [inland] Trolls like you.



    EDIT to the persistent TROLL Toddster below.
    I won't answer your Idiot Posts/Trolls Until and Unless I want to bump this thread to the top. I'll wait til it drifts down the board first.
    Thanks your your help and UNWITtingly being my straightman.

    Great ideas!

    Now how much do we have to spend to prevent the water from rising?

    Round numbers?

    Ahh yes, the thread has drifted down
    Time NOW for a reply to my straight man.. and troll... Toddster.

    I don't think any amount of money can stop the sea level rising in the next few decades.
    We can probably slow it though with responsible action at no real cost.
    Any 'cost' would just be new job creation in renewables.

    BTW, How many (round numbers) similar ridiculous trolling posts have you made?
    (Instead of harassment they're intended to be, I use them to promote my threads when they slow.
    Keep em coming)

    I agree with your position, but I think you could have found better examples. I lived in the Tidewater area for many years and never even heard of this place.

    Or.....we could invest in something that works at providing reliable energy.....nuclear.

    Q. By how much must we lower CO2 to stop seas from rising? (Oh and thanks Obama for fucking that up too)

    A. $17 trillion

    2/3 of New Industry money is going into Wind and Solar.
    Eventually what you say "really works" WILL be the back up.
    Right now plenty of room to expand the good stuff. whose reliability and storage capabilities are also improving yearly.

    Fuck nuclear. Too expensive, too dangerous, too dirty. No waste from solar and wind energy. And it is getting cheaper every day.

    I know. With enough stupid mandates and enough stupid subsidies, people waste money on lots of stupidity.
