The taxman in disguise. $50'trillion for
morally and fiscally bankrupt public serpents. A direct
transfer of wealth to elites from the dying middle classes.
Costs with no benefits. The earth has been warming since the
ice age with no help from mankind. Now we are the cause of
it. Humans are a part of,nature not a virus to it. What we
exhale is food for plants not a toxic substance. It's all
absurd preying on the useful idiots from public schools. We
had a heatwave across the Russian steppe in 2008 and a
similar one in the USA, crushing the wheat harvest. Average
temperatures keep going up, with the 2015 El Nino
undermining the silly idea of a hiatus. A northern
hemisphere drought, leading to actual crop failures is
likely at some point in the next 100 years, leading to mass
death and social unrest. It has been a lot hotter in the
past 4.5 billion years of the Earth's life. And the CO2
content has been higher.
You don't think there has never been heat waves before 2008?
or before 1850? Average temperatures have not really been
going up. Do you seriously think that temperatures were
taken at the exact same place as they are now and that they
are just as correct? There has been evidence of massaging
the original data. And the El Nino is not related to global
warming or climate change. We have had El Ninos for hundreds
of years. A lot of us weren't around then. And it is MORE
likely that there WON'T be a northern hemisphere drought in
the next 100 years. Nobody knows. The climate models have
been consistently wrong, they can't map all the variables
because they don't know them, and they can't put them in a
model. Do you really think there will be no technological
change in the next 100 years? Seriously.
Climate Change Alarmists love people like you, easy to fool
and manipulate. I think the author walks into the argument
with a false, or plain wrong, premise. If one assumes that
monopoly means, as per Merriam-Webester top definition, "
"exclusive ownership through legal privilege, command of
supply, or concerted action" then the whole discussion is
pointless. Google did not acquire its position through any
of these means and holds market superiority thanks to the
attractiveness of its services/products. I would argue that
that by itself does not make them a monopoly. Second,
author's point regarding profit margin and its connection to
monopoly is unconvincing; there are plenty of companies
riding high profit margins and very few of them hold any
type of market supremacy that author would call a monopoly.
