Yep that sounds right.Lay Vegan wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 5:36 pmIt seems that "left-market anarchism" is distinct from anarcho-capitalism in that LMA’s would reject implementing unfettered free markets, correct? Since capitalism is ultimately about the distribution of goods and services through the markets to generate profit, inequality seems inevitable insofar as the rich can allocate their capital into new investment, which furthers accumulation. I.e., anarcho-capitalism leads to an "stateless capitalism” whereas left-market anarchism leads to “stateless socialism."
Yep, definitely social equality and I'd also say diversity, like there isn't a one size fits all way of satisfying everyone's needs. And agree about the other side fixating on property rights, but it's a strange sort of right to horde and stratify which is anti-thetical to needs. Though one that seems to comfort them because it is one size fits all aha.
It was between Dr. David Katz for the negative and dietary journalist quack Nina Teicholz for the affirmative. I don't remember all of the points of the debate, but when it's uploaded to the interwebz, we can have some fun debunking Nina's BS (Katz wasn't able to refute all of her points, given the format of the debate). It might be a while though, so sit tight. I estimate it'll be out by early June the latest.There is little or no rigorous evidence that vegetarian/vegan diets are healthier than diets that include meat, eggs, and dairy.
It was pure cancer
Idso is not wrong that warming can sometimes precede rises in C02 levels, but he’s wrong in that there is no empirical evidence that C02 levels have no affect on global temperature (C02 only amplifies rises in temperature).Shakun et al. wrote:The covariation of carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration and temperature in Antarctic ice-core records suggests a close link between CO2 and climate during the Pleistocene ice ages. The role and relative importance of CO2 in producing these climate changes remains unclear, however, in part because the ice-core deuterium record reflects local rather than global temperature. Here we construct a record of global surface temperature from 80 proxy records and show that temperature is correlated with and generally lags CO2 during the last (that is, the most recent) deglaciation. Differences between the respective temperature changes of the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere parallel variations in the strength of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation recorded in marine sediments. These observations, together with transient global climate model simulations, support the conclusion that an antiphased hemispheric temperature response to ocean circulation changes superimposed on globally in-phase warming driven by increasing CO concentrations is an explanation for much of the temperature change at the end of the most recent ice age.
I think he did pretty well for the most part. His weaker parts were when he was responding to questions and such, and made appeals to authority (not that he was wrong; to a rational, scientifically literate person, it can be a very compelling case to make in regards to a hard science like this), but people are morons, especially in a place like this. Not only is ideology going to get in the way, but they're libertarians.
Again, libertarians. I would have kicked some of them in the eye when they laughed at Bennett, but as @Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz said, MUH NUN AGRUSHUN PRENSIPL!
