So, what/who benefits from CEIs blather (ok, big oil, answered my own question).
So I would guess that since everyone needs a job to pay the bills, big oil must be
paying the salaries and bills to support this website. Am I wrong?

Hey GP do you remember the baking soda and vinegar with the pop bottle and cork when you were a kid? How the cork blew out and the stuff just spewed everywhere leaving you wondering if it would ever stop.....

Anybody can do vitriol, but it is usually an indication of stupidity. We all have a choice - individualism or collectivism. That usually decides which side of politics you are on.

I think the vitriol is more a product of whether you perceive yourself to be on the "winning" or "loosing" side. But then there are some who can't make a point without being self righteous, sanctimonious, and disrespectful of whoever does not believe in his views.

Talk about a thread derailment - this is of epic proportions!
Look at Grandpaul's original post then look at the latest dozen posts - how did this happen?
To quote GP - "forget ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING that was said (by me also), and get back to NORTON COMMANDOS."
Hear, hear!!

Do you know what and who the CEI is? Its director, Myron Ebell is a well known climate denier. Pretty much a wingnut on the right. The CEI is noted for it’s distortions and lack of veracity. Myron has about as much credibility as Trump.

In simpler language, most of what’s on the CEI website is bullshit, the rest is made up.
Thoughts on this?
In the end, it comes down to a decision - God or science.

What’s the problem? Pointing out Grandpaul’s incompetence is disrespectful? Would you like to buy a motorcycle that someone had used Loctite on the head fasteners?

Rex Tillerson called Trump a fucking moron. Agreeing with Tillerson is not being disrespectful. Don’t you agree with Tillerson?

Sorry, 840, your dog just won’t hunt.

What about the rest of Texans?

Of the Texans I’ve worked with, not so much. I was an ironworker for 30 years. Worked in refineries in Minnesota and California during turn arounds. Lot of Texan construction companies in refineries. Most of those Texans talked a good game, but when it came time to put up they were sadly lacking.

Another experience I had with a Texan company was an outfit out of Houston contracted to install the curtain wall on a 57 story building in Minneapolis. They didn’t have the foggiest on how to install the curtain wall.

Another Texan I didn’t care for, George W. Bush. He damn near ruined the country. Lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, too.

BTW, lest you think I put all Texans in the same bag, I worked with a fellow from Austin, TX on a large solar project in the Mohave desert some 25 years ago. He and I became very good friends .
