How can I get some of that Putin money like Manafort?
What's it take to get on Putin's payroll? That guy pays a lot! Just found out that Manafort owns an apartment at Trump Tower. I presume it's on a lower floor than Trump. Do the wires from Trump's penthouse travel through Manafort's level?
yo, i got a question. am i the only one finding it extremely hard and frustrating playing with cobras? i am not the most experienced snake charmer in the world, but ive had my share of snakes in my hands and reading on their scales.
It seems that a third of the Great Barrier Reef has experienced a mass bleaching and die off following on last years record bleaching. This was expected but not for another theory years http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v543/n7645/full/nature21707.html
Yes, the scientists have been wrong about climate change consistently: things have been consistently much worse. As Winston Churchill didn't say, if you're young and a climate denier, you have no heart. If you're old and a climate denier you have no brain.
I read this story earlier today, and there was one thing in particular that I found funny. The Australians seem to be very upset that they are losing such a valuable tourist attraction and an invaluable source of biodiversity. They are blaming the reefs' decay on climate change though, which they blame on the burning of fossil fuels. The ironic part is that Australia is the number 1 exporter of coal in the world. I don't think they have the right to complain until they start taking action themselves to stop climate change. If they don't sell that coal, it can't be burned. I realize that those upset with the reefs' decay might not be the ones supporting the continuing shipment of large amounts of coal out of Australia, but until the Australian government does something themselves, I find it hard to expect anyone else to do something (and you can extend this to anyone complaining about the negative effects of climate change while contributing to it).
I heard about this on the radio, and recently watched a most disturbing documentary about plastic pollution in the world's oceans. There's a lot of surfers been worried for thirty, forty years about pollution in the sea, and we were dismissed as idiots, told we didn't know what we were talking about. One scary thing about plastic pollution in the Seas, soon the total estimated weight of plastic pollution will exceed the total estimated weight of all "fish life" in the Seas. I'm culpable, I'm guilty, I enjoy a lifestyle that leaves a damaged world, even though I do try to limit my consumption.
Indeed. Australians are second only to Americans when it comes to willful harm. I'd say that it isn't those who are contributing to the problem, which is damn near unavoidable, but those who refuse to cgo nyrinute to the solution who are the issue.
Climate change creates winners and losers. Canada seems to be a winner as it becomes less cold and a little wetter, moving America's breadbasket northward. As for America, if America does worse but Europe does MUCH worse, that is a relative win for America, much like the end of WW2 where Europe wasn't much of a competitive threat to America because they had to recover from the war for so long. I believe this is the underlying source of America's indifference (on the right) of climate change.
The Canadian tundra will suffer immensely and melting permafrost will make Canada ground zero for the return of fun things like anthrax while glacial melting and sea level rise will exacerbate erosion in the northern half and most of the western part of the country. The "winners" of the climate change sweepstakes won't be known until the climate has drastically changed.
It does suck, this is even worse than a zero sum game. But ask someone, would you mind losing a $10 if each person in the rest of the world lost $100 and most people would say yes. You know, psych experiments stuff.
Others don't think the consequences will be as enormous as 'alarmists' have made them out to be. Still others don't think it's avoidable, either because we didn't cause it in the first place or because we can't fix it.
And some think it's a Chinese hoax to make US manufacturing non-competitive, but I'm sure they don't matter, no one would have paid attention to someone who said something that outrageous.
Man-made climate change is going to cause an extinction event unprecedented for tens of millions of years. Human civilisation will survive but we definitely live in the last generation where everything doesn't go absolutely to shit.
I find it hard to define winners and losers here. Short term sure. But with climate change it's literally the one issue I can't look at and see how any person could come out on top; if our only viable planet for human life becomes uninhabitable. Of course if a group of people found a way to live off earth independently an permanently then sure someone could theoretically win. But as of now I can't see a potential winner.
@Constipcension, nuclear war creates total losses for all. Doesn't mean it won't happen, especially if someone thinks that they can survive underground indefinitely. In that case, nuclear war would create a "winner". Viva political realism!
Please visit the Pacific Islands now as they will not be around much longer..unlike the legacy of apathy that has infected the western world ..we know the issue we know the solutions but in the end play web dip. and eat burgers and soda, apathy breeds ..ohh I cant be bothered ................................
I am back after a long time. 4 years to be precise. But when I left, there used to be a lot of LIVE games all the times. Now, whenever I peek the website out of curiosity, I never find a LIVE game. I tried making rooms, but no one ever joined!
Of all the people that have influenced music in the last 60 years, from the Beatles to Muddy Waters to whoever you like, Chuck Berry will probably be the one they still talk about hundreds of years down the road. A real legend in music.
yo, i got a question. am i the only one finding it extremely hard and frustrating playing with new players? i am not the most experienced player in the world, but ive had my share of games and reading on the game.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush_tax_cuts I've been bitching about America's high military spending compared to other countries, but as a % of GDP it has remained steady at approx 5%. Still high but...
Hello WebDiplomacy. I have a group of people are making a physical World Diplomacy map for a big event, but we have agreed the board has some problems. Most of the people weighing on this issue say they want to take away South Africa's unit in Antarctica and instead put it in Madagascar as a fleet. However, I am worried that, unless South Africa and Argentina actively worked to stop this, it would give Antarctica too many possibilities for expansion in its home continent.
