Umm... the oceans are filled with mercury... not only that, the acidification of the oceans are killing all the coral reefs (80% of sea life depends on coral reefs)

Can we start there?

I like it. But we said science.

1. What do you mean the oceans are filled with mercury?

2. What do you mean by the acidification of the oceans?

No Ecmandu, goddamnit, we are not going through this again.

In your own words. I'm not asking for a scientific treatise. A general outline.

I mean, for something y'all are so adamant about, I expected a bit more than a guy throwing a couple of links up and refusing to elaborate.

I don’t know what you want from me man.

I’ll list another one:

It’s estimated that 80% of the food eaten comes from pollinators - like bees.

Well bees are pretty much fucked now. I mean they’re still around.

There’s 2 theories for the die off:

1.) a virus or bacterium
2.) our cell phones are messing with their GPS systems

Just like our sonar fucks with dolphins and whales

This is absurd. I gave you two articles about the definitions of those terms and you balked at me.

It’s like you ask me to be a linguist and tell you in my own words what the word, “is” means. So you mean that the dictionary isn’t good enough for you?

I have to give a DIFFERENT definition, such as;

“Is” definition: pooping in your pants

Then you check the real definition and say “aha!” You’re wrong!”

This thread from you is insanity by you

Pedro. You’re crazy in this thread. You may not actually be crazy, but in this thread; you are.

You’ve set it up so that it’s impossible for anyone to win.

If someone gives you a definition you tell them to give you a different definition. If they give you a different definition you say they’re factually incorrect.

This thread is absurd.

You haven't given me anything. You posted some links.

I am simply asking you to tell me, in very vague scientific terms, what you mean by the acidification of the ocean, as well as mercury in the ocean.

You say there is no way for me to lose. But if the science is on your side, there should be no way for me to win.

"You. You tell me."

Did you just type that with an overbearing Italian accent?

To me, science is a new swear word.
It's a curse word.
That is how messed up it is right now.

I agree that it's a shame.

But maybe we can do our part in clearing its name, by discussing highly politicized ideas which are claimed to be scientific.

A republican would not bring such a vague thing as "the environment" up anyways, so unfortunately I have to wait for someone from the other side, which constitutes about 90% of this board, to present a case.

I thought I would be flooded within minutes. Because such a huge deal is made about not only the importance but the clear scientific basis.

But, so far, just you me and the feyerabendian kuhnicists.
