    Unless you feel the need to really get an issue off your chest, don't bother replying.

    The Docs MO is pretty straightforward.
    Post over complicated opinions, and if you don't understand them, you are obviously thick as poo as far as he and his posse is concerned.

    If he really wanted to illuminate the issue from a scientific point of view, he would use less politically motivated jargon. He would certainly be less offensive.

    His MO is that his political party is clever and the opposition is moronic.

    The Republicans have never won on smart. They win on being American, eg Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan would not understand The Doc's
    posts. However, he would understand how to win.

    Ronald Reagan and The Doc are polls apart.

                  What? I believe in politeness. It's how I was raised.

                  I at least have to post the second part of the response I mentioned earlier. The problem with this thread for me is simply time. It's obvious that the Doc has already done years of research, and prepared these presentations long beforehand to address various points that opponents might happen to bring up. In my case, on the other hand, having never debated this issue over the internet before, I have no pre-existing posts, articles, spreadsheets, calculations, etc. to simply copy and paste, so I must come up with them from scratch.

                  This is why it takes me so long to reply in detail to this thread: combined with my external obligations, it is unimaginably time-consuming to consolidate various sources, charts, and graphs into a single coherent post. I can refute the arguments leveled against me, but it just takes time, which I often don't have (hence the reason I only joined ACG in January).

                  You all might laugh at me about my 'politeness' statement, but I really take it to heart: you won't see me post anything on here that I wouldn't say in public.

                      Interesting, Nick.
                      I find that the Doc can be introduced to new ideas, but you have to use some of the techniques that Plato describes Socrates as using on a befuddled young Glaucon.

                      If you try to introduce too many links, too rapidly, he reverts to "GIBBERISH' GREAT FRACKING GRIEF!!! AND . ERR WORSE.

                          You clearly know less about Ronald Reagan than you do about science...



                          I have flown twice over Mount St. Helens out on our West Coast. I'm not a scientist and I don't know the figures, but I have a suspicion that that one little mountain has probably released more sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere of the world than has been released in the last ten years of automobile driving or things of that kind that people are so concerned about.

                          I think, too, that we've got to recognize that where the preservation of a natural resource like the redwoods is concerned, that there is a common sense limit. I mean, if you've looked at a hundred thousand acres or so of trees—you know, a tree is a tree, how many more do you need to look at?

                            Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber, fiancee provide new green energy scandal for Democrats
                            Controversy creates new questions for billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer

                            EXCERPTS;
                            What do you get when you mix a governor, his ambitious fiancee, a billionaire environmentalist and some handsome green energy consulting contracts? In Oregon, they have collided to produce an influence-peddling scandal that threatens to end Gov. John Kitzhaber’s tenure.

                            Mr. Kitzhaber, a Democrat, faced increasing pressure Thursday within his own party to resign over accusations that his fiancee sought to use her relationship with the governor to land lucrative consulting contracts for her green energy consulting business.
                            ...
                            Oregon’s controversy has created new questions for billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer, a major Democratic supporter and bundler for Mr. Obama. It also has renewed questions about whether the nation’s embrace of clean energy has become a lobbying bonanza that enriched some well-heeled Democrats.

                            Oregon’s scandal centers around the governor’s fiancee, Cylvia Hayes, who has been acting first lady as she awaits her wedding to Mr. Kitzhaber.

                            While serving as an unpaid policy adviser for the governor’s office, Ms. Hayes collected $118,000 in fellowship and consulting fees from the Clean Economy Development Center, a Washington-based nonprofit, for work on low-carbon fuel standard legislation in Oregon.

                              You do know that I'm a self employed, take no money from the state, am ex army, and a politically right of centre guy? I'm also straight, married and have kids I raise and take to church every Sunday. Not very, what you might say, liberal type of person.

                              I used to be Green at university, because right wing dudes never got laid unless they were rich.

                              I believe in a character behind King Arthur, which might make me more than gullible.

                              I should be the perfect minion to follow your POV.
