Man, that's a lot of flame throwing for a non-binding agreement that, according to the IPCC's own models, would accomplish almost nothing. The emperor apparently doesn't like being told he has no clothes.

The U.S. did better than any other Kyoto signatory at reducing
emissions, without having ratified Kyoto 1.0. The U.S. even spanked
Germany, and badly. Why the hell would a lone wolf who's actually doing
better at the apparent task want to entangle with and be associated with
losers?

Yes they can.
 
I bet among the papers she signed was a conditional delivery agreement that said all was contingent on the loan being approved.
 
It's a common practice called spot delivery. Usually happens because dealers want to get you in the car when the banks are closed (like on the weekend).

That's interesting - and the customer I presume, is liable for depreciation incurred?

So this girl in Tennessee wrote an essay for her Yale application about how she loves to order pizza delivery
 
It worked - and she got into Yale
 
But she decides to go to Auburn instead - b/c they have a Papa John's and Chik Fil A at campus.

There is something to be said for allowing the people we elected to
represent us to do that without liberal losers acting like loose
cannons attempting to destroy the centuries-old American process.
 
That's provided, of course, that the current representative is not
attempting to turn us into a socialist state as his predecessor. Such
traitorous action demanded action.

"The company that owns the Three Mile Island nuclear plant, site of the
worst nuclear disaster in U.S. history, announced that it plans to
shutter the facility in 2019 unless the state of Pennsylvania steps in
to keep it open."
 
Meaning give us money. Owner is Exelon, one of the largest utilities in
the world. Bought TMI from General Public Utilities around year 2000 for
$25 million and GPU agreed to finance fuel costs. Not sure of the
original cost, but I suspect it was north of $1 billion.
 
Utility competition and the free market removed the social benefits
component out of the hands of the regulators. Even if you do not believe
in anthropogenic climate change, retiring well-performing nuclear plants
and replacing their energy production with primarily natural gas and
coal does not make a lot of sense.

Seems to me we need a source of energy that recreates faster than
fossil fuels.
 
Since I am not privy to the details why are not wind, solar and
nuclear the answer?

I think you need to really bucket wind / solar differently than nuclear / nat gas / coal - mainly because with the first group the source input is so variable and you usually have much higher requirements around storing up against a calm, rainy day.
 
Or night.

Does anyone have a list of those names? I would like to send a card of
appreciation (maybe even a small check) for doing their best to save
this country from a 4S.

I have read that he is super intelligent AND Trump might never have

First, lets talk about the idot on the warriors sidelines with kerr out. Mike Brown. The defining moment of Brown's career is of course game 5 against boston...the defining game in that series where his 60+ win lebron led team fell at home and lost control of that series. His strategy in that game and series can only be described as coaching malpractice of the highest level. At a time when the league was already starting to understand the concept of smaller lineups and when Lebron and that team were obviously more explosive in the series with AV and a bunch of shooters around Lebron, Brown decided to make the human fossil that was Shaquille Oneal by that point a focal point of the offense/lineup that night. "feed the big guy" brown said, as the offense crept to a stall and Lebron looked out of sorts all night. He singlehandedly pissed that series(and a likely nba title) away due to coaching malpractice.
Has he learned anything since then? Doubtful. Warriors fans are confident it won't be an issue and say "yeah we know he is an idiot, but this is a veteran team that coaches itself and draymond and co won't let him screw things up". The reality is he is still the coach on the sidelines though, and if he starts wanting to "take advantage of a mismatch" and run the offense through Pichula or somesuch nonsense, well.......
 
Second, let's talk about why the cavs won last year when lebron scrapped his head coaches gameplan and took over the series. Essentially their key offensive strategy starting with game 3 became "find curry and p/r him to death". The warriors didn't have answer. In the series changing game 5 they decided not to switch it over and over again and kyrie did what he did. Then if they switched it they were screwed too; basically they said "here is the p/r with kyrie and bron right at steph...whatcha goin to do mfers?" and golden state didn't have an answer. They can't hide curry on this p/r, and curry can't not play because he is essential to their team....so what do they do? I sure as hell don't know, and I guarantee that Mike Brown doesn't.
 
Third, bron as a defender proves so valuable against golden state because he and TT can do so many things on defense and cover so many positions. Bron's flexibility here on defense means that even with several negative defenders at once on the floor, bron makes up for a lot of these deficiencies. When Draymond and steph p/r, Lebron was usually involved in it some way. Yeah if they didn't switch it if bron wasnt there steph gets in the lane, and then someone has to help....but the guy that was left open more often than not eventually on the switch was Harrison Barnes, and in games 3-7 he was atrocious. Couldnt knock down open shots after the p/r help. They didn't resign Barnes this year so he is no longer there, but I kinda doubt whatever stiff free agent they brought in to replace barnes is going to be able to knock down open shots either if they dont switch it and help. Whoever it is(?) is probably worse than Barnes anyways.
 
Fourth, Lebron. He wants to be seriously considered as the GOAT, and if he wins this series a good case could be made. And the warriors don't have a good answer for him, because even iggy(who matches up best) isnt healthy. His health and him not being 100% is a HUGE loss for the warriors.
 
So in looking at all these things I'm going to say (quickly glances at golden state roster....holy shit)....golden state in 5.

Bad news for LSU - it's Tiger mascot has been deemed "a symbol of white oppression". The complaint
filed by black students also claims the Tiger mascot is "an insult to all African-American students". They demand the Tiger be scrapped immediately and a new mascot be named. How about the "LSU Fighting Obama's"?

Since the beginning females have not enjoyed the Crimson Tide.
 
But maybe someone could head a fund-raiser to buy LSU whatever a bunch
of tigers is called.
 
I can't object to the jackass being the symbol of the Dem party.

An unbiased committee should be unleashed to investigate the issue. If
Trump was unethical, based on circumstances that apply to all, or if
he acted illegally, he should not be immune to criticism or action by
the proper group of people - but not solely by a bunch of raggedy-ass
4S types.

Also patent infringement has the potential for treble damages, unlike breach of contract.
 
Plus the contract breach would be the against the original buyer. If the original buyer resells, they can still be on the hook but the subsequent buyers won't, unlike patent infringement which is forever.
 
Patent infringement is a much bigger hammer than breach of contract.
