Why haven't they banned 80% fireworks and fireworks components? Probably tons of it coming in every day.

Not firework.  Cultural celebratory apparatus ....   :geekdanc: :thumbsup:

I believe they have proved that the earth's temperature has charged....

You totally ignored that you did not know the definition of Climate Change.

Never wrong, are you?

And what you "believe" that's just wrong could fill volumes.

HPD data shows that since 2015 the number of homicides on Oahu hasn’t
changed too much. But the percentage of cases involving firearms has been
on the rise since 2017.

So, when guns were used less often, the number of murders since 2015 was "X".

When guns were used more often, the number of murders since 2017 was "X" ("hasn't changed too much").

I'm not an expert, but it seems to me that the TOOL used to commit murder has nothing at all to do with the murder rate.  Further restrictions on guns will not make a bit of difference in how many people are murdered.

Simple deductive reasoning.

I can back that up with science,  what can you?  Methane is a green house gas....

This is the COVID Cult thread.

Aren't there enough climate change discussion threads for you already?

This, from the guy who said he tries to stay on topic.  You have zero self discipline.  You reply to every comment that triggers a thought regardless of whether or not it's on topic.

Some old same old.

I also try and stay on topic.  But I do admit I do follow others on tangents more than nessasary.

PELOSI PRESSED on ABORTION: ‘Is an Unborn Baby at 15 Weeks a Human Being?’

https://hannity.com/media-room/pelosi-pressed-on-abortion-is-an-unborn-baby-at-15-weeks-a-human-being/

Completely and undeniably failed to answer the question. 

The Democrats give millions to Planned Parenthood.  If they supported the "right to choose", Congress would also appropriate the SAME AMOUNT OF TAX PAYER DOLLARS to groups that support alternatives to abortion -- you know ... actual "choices."

I hope you are both sarcastic.... :wtf: :wacko:

Missing the point.... as usual.

Climate change tends to mean more of extreme weather....not just heat....the climate is...changing...  More often its getting warmer but there are huge swings.

You made that up out of thin air. 

You're saying it's the DEGREE or AMOUNT of change in the weather ("more extreme"; "huge swings") that qualifies as climate change.

WRONG.  Climate Change is based on the length of time over which changes in "usual weather" happens.  It can be a tiny change or dramatic.  If the usual temperature on Oahu measured over 200 years increased by half a degree, then the climate has changed half a degree warmer over that period.

What Is Climate Change?

Climate change is a change in the usual weather found in a place. This could be a change in how
much rain a place usually gets in a year. Or it could be a change in a place's usual temperature for
a month or season.

Climate change is also a change in Earth's climate. This could be a change in Earth's usual temperature.
Or it could be a change in where rain and snow usually fall on Earth.

Weather can change in just a few hours. Climate takes hundreds or even millions of years to change.

Can you disprove my opinion?

Which one.

You have at least one opinion on EVERY-F*CKING-THING.   :popcorn:

Used to go every other year....

I know this might surprise you, but when its hot out most of the time its also sunny... What is the sun good for?  Solar?  :wacko:

If you believe that's how it works, then it must be true.    :crazy:

Warmer temperatures can't possibly be caused by seasonal changes due to the tilt of the Earth on its axis or differences in elevation.  Variances in temperature are only caused by increased sunshine being generated by the Sun.   :wacko:

It's never "sunnier" on cold days than it is on hot days.   :wacko:

By your logic, a solar panel in Waikiki is going to produce more electricity on Christmas Day where it's 85F weather than the same solar panel installed on top of Mauna Kea on the same day where it's 30F.  That, even though the article I posted explains why heat causes a reduction in voltage production in solar panels.

You must be making a serious effort to be this stupid.

So since I was called tinfoil, as penalty for accusing of tin foil, said accusers must now wear the tin foil hat for 24hrs.  And go around claiming the earth is flat.

Wearing tin foil hats is not very "green."  It's wasteful.  imagine how many aluminum trees gave their lives for your tin foil accessories!

There's a book about downs. In that since there are way more today than 40 years ago, downs is our next evolution change.  I mean a person with downs won't start a war, won't rob someone, won't do many things knowingly.  So it would bring the human race back to being nice toward each other.  But then out technology would not advance either.

Imagine a world in which downs syndrome is considered normal, and those without the "proper chromosomes" are seen as a threat to the survival of the race and the planet.

Then imagine if expectant parents started aborting all non-downs babies, because they are not "wanted."

If you're okay with aborting kids with DS now, then you must also okay with aborting all non-DS babies if that's where we wind up.

Oh and before someone pipes in with Japan has free health care, that's true and it's really gross, for such a clean country, free clinics are dirtier than Love Hotels. Folks only use them to get a doctor's note or a quick prescription. Real health care they pay for a real doctor at a real hospital, not a grubby dusty room with shag carpet from the 70s. And medical equipment from the 60s.

Military members who marry a Japanese spouse often wind up spending thousands to have US dentists fix the dental work performed by Japanese dentists.

Dental healthcare in Japan is extremely poor.  But I guess it's "free" (if you don't understand where the government gets its revenue).

Mr. Full O Sh*t is back.

Dr. Fauci on lab leak theory: "We’ve always said to keep an open mind and continue to look. So I think it’s a bit of distortion to say that we deliberately suppressed that."


vid of him lying so more.

This is the main problem with protecting Big Tech as "private companies that can do what they want".  When Big Tech suppresses information and only allows one side of a narrative to gain traction, it creates a cocoon of "plausible deniability" for the government actors big Tech supports. 

Fauci et. al. might not have officially suppressed the Lab stories, but Big Tech absolutely did.  Where was Fauci then telling Big Tech that the Lab theory had merit and needed to be thoroughly examined?

Great 👍 more use of Public transport.   I would love to end up like Tokyo and never have to drive again. 

Also might lead to more adoption of solar.  When the sun is out and the heat is the worse you get the most electricity.

Have you ever been to Tokyo?  I don't think you could afford living there.

As already posted, heat does NOT produce more electricity from solar panels.  It's the opposite.  But you never let actual facts get in the way of your lectures, do you?

It may seem counter-intuitive, but solar panel efficiency is affected negatively by temperature increases. 
Photovoltaic modules are tested at a temperature of 25 degrees C (STC) – about 77 degrees F., and
depending on their installed location, heat can reduce output efficiency by 10-25%.  As the temperature
of the solar panel increases, its output current increases exponentially, while the voltage output is reduced
linearly. In fact, the voltage reduction is so predictable, that it can be used to accurately measure temperature. 

As a result, heat can severely reduce the solar panel’s production of power...

To the contrary. Public opinion of the US has only gone up after Trump.

Right.   :crazy:

Its ok, they can stop 3/4 the way and charge for 8hrs no problem. (Sarcasm)

Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

That's sort of my point.  Even if you can find a place to charge the car along the way, what if every charging station is being used?  What if they are out of order (vandalized, stolen)?  What if the chargers aren't able to charge your batteries at full speed, maybe doubling the wait time you're used to at home -- kind of like the newer phones with Quick Charge that only works at full speed with compatible chargers?

How long are you willing and able to delay continuing on your way while waiting for the batteries to be charged? 

This is one reason I prefer the hybrids.  If the batteries aren't charged or fail for some reason, you aren't stranded.

People need to realize and get over range anxiety.   Most people don't need to drive 500 miles non stop....I don't even drive that in a whole week.

It's always about you, huh?

"Most people" in the US don't live in Hawaii and are routinely driving hours at a time.

What if you wanted to go from LA to Vegas for the weekend?  Distance is 281 miles from LA Airport to the LV Strip.  That's 4 hrs 12 mins at the posted speed limits according to Google Maps. 

I doubt you'll ever afford/splurge for anything nicer than a Nissan Leaf, so let's use that as the baseline.  Top range on a single charge is 220 miles, less than the LA-to-LV trip mileage.

So, where are you going to stop to charge your car?  How long will it take for you to get enough charge to complete your trip?  Are you going to  only charge it sufficiently to complete the trip, or are you going to get a full charge in case you get lost, have to take a detour, get stuck in traffic, have an emergency, etc?

I once drove to LV from San Diego, and the mountain pass was closed for hours due to a traffic accident.  It would have been nice to just sit for 2 hours and then get back on the road at full speed, but instead, the cops were letting traffic drive past the accident one car at a time each way.  So, we did about 1-10MPH all the way to the accident zone -- for 3 hours!!

I should have been in Vegas about 9PM, but I didn't arrive until just before 1AM the next morning. 

So, what's the range of the batteries for over 6 hours with 3-4 of those hours at an average of 5MPH?  Plus, there are no places to stop on that road for gas, charge, or anything else.

Not every situation lends itself to your hypothetical "anxiety".  Learn to live in the real world.
