Lucifer's actually pretty chill once you get to know him.
On Bye-Bye, ‘Gator Boy’

I'm advocating not putting all our bread in one basket. There isn't a one size fits all model for energy production (for instance, solar is considered a good option in Hawaii because it's super sunny there and the cost of oil is the highest in the country).
And look, unsubsidized renewables are becoming cost-competitive! https://www.greentechmedia.com/articl...
That's the free market, with a little push from the ol' gov (in the form of subsidies that help trigger growth in this long-term solution), at work.
random_kook - you know what helps old reactors stay maintained? Regulations! Yes, you'd think it would be in the interest of the plant operators to keep their plants working in perpetuity... but often times rules and regs really do help keep business owners on a path that benefits both their wallets and the greater good.
On Climate Change in the Air

Hmm, environmentalists are indeed concerned about much more than just the relationship between an increase CO2 in the atmosphere and a decrease of chlorophyll-containing plant and organisms. You don't get to set the terms of this discussion just because of your own limited scope of the issues.
And I thought this "pause" crap had been thoroughly debunked?
But I agree that it's in large part a property rights issue. The transport of pollutants is infringing on my right to breathe good air and drink good water and eat good food.

The Indy's comment section is afflicted with right-wing internerds who can't discern the difference between exhalation of breath and the poorly-regulated idle of a freighter sitting off our coast.

Uh, why would Ranch owners be harassing people accessing Naples?

Correct me if I'm wrong: has this guy been running for office, and losing, since the mid-90s? Why no mention of his running record in this article?
On Meeting Congressional Candidate Chris Mitchum

As a kid, I lived right along the San Ysidro creek (late '80s/early '90s), just below Casa De Maria and the SY Ranch. One of our neighbors from across the creek (a Park Lane house) would build a mini dam with rocks and dirt on the creek and pump out water to feed their enormous lawn. Every time we saw the dam, we would break it. Those gardeners hated us!
On Montecito Entitled to More Water?

"I think the major complaints here are the fact that this was a mentor/teacher to someone underage who engaged in this activity and then it sounds like that on top of that he used intimidating tactics to stalk him or whatever."
Yes, this. JamPenn, he likely exploited his position of power, as a mentor, to condition the boy.
On Former Coach Pleads No Contest to Sexual Offenses

Why are so many out-of-touch, hard right folks so into chattering to themselves in comments on websites?
I wonder if it has anything to do with living in a bubble, controlling what you're exposed to, and rarely relating to real people on personal levels.
I imagine the Independent is bummed at how low-quality and unrepresentative their comments are.

retprotector: I really hope you're joking. If not, you're incredibly stupid.
