Can we sustain our society's current global infrastructure with only renewable energy resources?

RTN1994

[Position]:I would like to begin with saying that my argument is that our current global infrastructure; with its nuclear power plants, rail roads/other means of transportation like metro-buses and airplanes, factories, plastics, car and auto industries, and all other fossil fuel dependent areas/industries, cannot be sustained with ONLY renewable resources (I.e. Wind, Solar, and Hydro power). ****Clarification what nonrenewable energy source are: "Non-renewable energy sources include oil and...

Fraud investigators should focus their attention on wealthy conservatives

brian_eggleston

Since the resources of tax authorities such as America's Internal Revenue Service [1] and Britain's HM Customs and Revenue [2] are limited, they should target their tax evasion investigations on those most likely to offend by proactively probing the financial affairs of known supporters of right-wing political parties. That's because one of the main reasons unscrupulous and dishonest rich people support the Republican Party in the US, or the Conservative Party in the UK, is that they resent p...

We should use the term ‘fat' instead of ‘obese'

brian_eggleston

British Government Minister Anne Milton yesterday suggested that doctors should call overweight patients "fat" rather than "obese". 'She told the BBC the term fat was more likely to motivate them into losing weight. She said it was important people should take personal responsibility for their lifestyles. Professor Steve Field, of the Royal College of GPs, said he agreed with Ms Milton and already tried to use the term fat as much as he could. "I think the term obese medicalises the state....

Global Warming; real or not?

Crayzman2297

I maintain that Global Warming is not brought about by man, and cannot be reversed by man. The statistics are grossly inflated by the fact that they are predictions made by computers and not historical facts. Computers today are nowhere nearly accurate enough to predict the future climate change, and many people seem to be ignoring the fact that our world is still emerging from an ice age. ?...

Men are better at shopping than women

brian_eggleston

I went out to do some Christmas shopping with a female acquaintance of mine on Saturday morning and on the way we passed a car accessory shop where I spotted a set of fantastic 17" wire wheels. I'd been looking for a set like that for ages and they were on special offer so I just had to buy them. Then it was just a matter of visiting a few tyre fitters until I found a suitable set of low profiles to go with them. However, by time I had them fitted, it was lunchtime. Now, after lunch, my femal...

The religious indoctrination of minors is a form of child abuse

brian_eggleston

Adults who sexually interfere with minors, be they parents, friends of the family, teachers, priests or complete strangers are rightly punished when their crimes are uncovered. However, in addition to the sexual molestation of children, there are three other forms of child abuse: physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. http://www.nspcc.org.uk/HelpAndAdvice/WhatChildAbuse/whatischildabuse_wda36500.html My contention is that adults who indoctrinate children with religious propaganda, wh...
