He is putting the real effect of humans on this earth into perspective. He also stated that the eruptions accounted for more CO2 introduced into the atmosphere than in all of human history. If that is true, then why wasn't there an incredible spike in temperatures immediately (after the sky cleared) afterwards? We have been told time and again CO2 causes warming. Shouldn't we have seen it after these events?

My, my, my. I'm guessing that you were picked on in school.
Please don't tell me the stood there and took it? "Lethal force not be used", indeed! How preposterous. When given the order to stop and ignoring it, they have become invaders onto the sovereign soil of the United States, and should be repelled by any and all means necessary. If this is a common occurrence, the military needs to be involved.
LMAO. I appreciate the parody. Thanks!

The Punishment Is the Crime

Ok. You have two felonies - felonies are not small time crimes - and you then go out and commit another. That to me is an perfect example of the word incorrigible. At what point do you say enough?
That just p*sses me off. I used to think that lawyers and insurance men should be the first against the wall. Anymore, I think it should be the educators.
That's simple. To advance to the position is which to be considered for such a task you have already mastered the requisite skills for government work. Unfortunately these skills are not related to competence in a technical field, but rather the political games of CYA, blame deflecting and credit (undue) taking. Masters of manipulation, they are great at all things except for what they are tasked to do, and of course, it's somebody else's fault.
Rebel by living the word of God. Reject the ways of thinking that stand in opposition to it. Refuse to comply with laws that are anathema to it.
No where in the article does it imply that early christians sought to throw off the chains of Rome. It only says that they defied Rome when it came to conflicts between God and state. I think this is a valid point, and one that should be emulated today. Be a christian first, a citizen second.

Excellent article, John. "Technological innovation constantly threatens centralized authorities." Truer words were never spoken.
