• Is Kraft a more innovative company than Amazon? Does Kraft deserve more investment than Amazon?

    Kraft invented the "electric tongue," which can detect when food is spoiled. What has Amazon done to gain a technological edge over their competition? What has Amazon done to make America the envy of the world? Kraft's electric tongue is on the frontier of science. Humans have only recently made significant progress in nanotechnology.... show more
    Kraft invented the "electric tongue," which can detect when food is spoiled. What has Amazon done to gain a technological edge over their competition? What has Amazon done to make America the envy of the world? Kraft's electric tongue is on the frontier of science. Humans have only recently made significant progress in nanotechnology. Companies like Kraft which redefine what's technologically possible are what America is all about. Which begs the question: why don't companies like Kraft, that are responsible for major technological feats receive more investment? Why are so many Americans investing in faux-innovative companies like Amazon? Amazon hasn't accomplished much other than reducing tax revenue in local communities. I haven't bought anything from Amazon in 2 years. When I did, the items I purchased cost 10 percent as much compared to local stores. The money saved didn't make me wan to buy more stuff. Therefore, local communities receive ~10 percent as much tax revenue from Amazon as brick and mortar stores. How will local communities cope with the loss in revenue? By raising taxes or increasing debt? Thanks Amazon! Why do investors enable Amazon to undermine communities? Why don't investors prop up innovative companies like Kraft instead? Amazon didn't make a profit in two decades. Why were investors so generous to a company that's a dreg on society?

  • Why would anyone make the silly claim that CO2 is causing the acidity of oceans to increase?

    Carbon dioxide doesn't have any hydrogen. Therefore, it can't increase the acidity of oceans. In contrast, sulfuric and nitric acid fully dissociate in water. How gullible does someone have to be to believe that carbonic acid is a cause and not an effect of increasing ocean acidity? The main problem with coal is sulfur. This causes acid... show more
    Carbon dioxide doesn't have any hydrogen. Therefore, it can't increase the acidity of oceans. In contrast, sulfuric and nitric acid fully dissociate in water. How gullible does someone have to be to believe that carbonic acid is a cause and not an effect of increasing ocean acidity? The main problem with coal is sulfur. This causes acid rain. Why don't people concerned about the environment call for the decommissioning of coal power plants, rather than making bogus claims about CO2? Most coal power plants are nearly 50 years old anyway, so it's not much of a loss from an economic perspective. Note, the shelf life of a coal power plant is about 50 years.

  • If sulfuric and nitric acid is causing soil and lakes to become more acidic, why not the ocean?

    According to Wikipedia, the dubious claim is made that carbon dioxide is causing the acidification of the oceans. Isn't it more likely that abundant strong acids such as sulfuric and nitric acid are responsible for the acidification of the oceans rather than a weak acid like carboxylic acid? The difference in acidity is about six orders of... show more

Isn't it more likely that abundant strong acids such as sulfuric and nitric acid are responsible for the acidification of the oceans rather than a weak acid like carboxylic acid? The difference in acidity is about six orders of magnitude. Hence it's readily acknowledged that they're causing the soil and lakes to acidify. How can anyone honestly believe carbon dioxide is what's causing ocean acidification?

  • Why is nuclear power legal?

    For 18 years, 3 nuggets of uranium sat in open containers in the museum in the grand canyon. In 2018, someone just happened to have a Geiger counter in the area.

Had it not been for this curious person, visitors to the Grand Canyon would still be exposed to 400x acceptable radiation levels. Lastly, the National park service didn't even report the incident, despite being legally required to do so. This begs the question: where else might uranium be? It can be right next door. Should everyone buy a Geiger counter or should nuclear power be outlawed? There's plenty of cheap alternatives. What need is there to unearth such a dangerous energy source?

    Zero-based budgeting builds the budget from scratch rather than using the prior years budget as a starting point.
