Re: Climate Change - so I'm starting to panic a bit

I aint no rocket appliantist, but even I understand how burning fossil fuels reintroduces all the co2 that's been out of the carbon cycle for millions of years causing global temps to increase due to the well documented greenhouse effect, how is this such a hard thing for climate change deniers to understand?

Re: Canada's future economy and jobs - what will they be?

Posted by: chupacabra

That is a great video and something I have been thinking about lately.  Without a major breakthrough in the science of aging, I only have a few more decades of quality time left.  I like my job, but I would rather do something else if I had the choice.  Do I want to die regretting that choice?

how come so many people all around the world are so stuuupid

Like as in super vague posts with no direction or clear subjects?

Or no particular contribution to the topic at hand but just want to add their two cents cause they like the sound of themselves talking

so, what's the trick to getting these to post as vid and not link?

This will tie in well: You guys remember the push behind banning plastic straws? The turtles full of plastic's ?

Well lots of straws biodegrade.. but wont those small fibre's eventually suffocate the plankton that provides us with oxygen?

Out of the frying pan...

Sure, but the straw I throw away ends up in a landfill and not the ocean.. not really doing a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, yet I can still see straws as the useless excess and waste that they are.. yet, I still miss them when places dont give me one.

Re: Climate Change - so I'm starting to panic a bit

pretty much every equipment dealer is selling machines or deleting all the emissions components off new equipment that's supposed to comply with the new emissions regulations.. we're pretty much fucked as a planet I'd say..

Re: Canada's future economy and jobs - what will they be?

T-mack, are any of them on the Island? My old man is a highly trained Tool and Die maker and he's having a tough time finding anything on the Island.

My work was primarily Forestry based and I hated it more and more with every fresh cutblock I visited, now I just don't see much of a future in the industry at all and switched out to work for the Coast Guard, which seems a lot more stable and also manages to satisfy the pacifist in me, I sleep pretty well now.

Tell me more about this Coast guard gig

I basically started over as an Oiler (bottom bitch in the engine room) because they dont count Red Seals in Heavy duty Mechanics. I'm now working my way to becoming a Engineering Officer. I took a 50% cut in pay, but I prefer to look at it as I've gained 50% of my life back because I only work half the year now, less if I actually take time off which would give me 3 months off in a row.

You need your basic marine safety courses (fire fighting and survival craft) and the willingness to be at sea for 28 - 42 days at a time. Coming from a heavy duty position this is as gravy as it gets.

Re: Canada's future economy and jobs - what will they be?

I started the decade wanting to become a heavy duty mechanic.. cause I wanted job security and the pay was as good as it gets for someone with my smarts

My work was primarily Forestry based and I hated it more and more with every fresh cutblock I visited, now I just don't see much of a future in the industry at all and switched out to work for the Coast Guard, which seems a lot more stable and also manages to satisfy the pacifist in me, I sleep pretty well now. 

I definitely think what they're doing in Forestry especially here on the island is not sustainable in any way, so I'm really glad to have found a way to get the fuck out. It is definitely something I've noticed that all the best paying jobs are dependent on killing the planet, maybe we're better off without them.

they took 20 years just to figure out which NIMBYS back yard it was actually going in.

Re: Brian Day is the Devil

I always found that the quickest way to get something that's broken and that you have to use everyday (at work that is) was to make your boss use it. what incentive do our shitty politicians have to fix our system if they aren't even the ones using it.

Re: Amazon

Right? Like it's not hard to look objectively at the greater good Tesla is working towards vs the status quo of everything else.
