    What the soul chooses or doesn't choose shouldn't change how respond when we see suffering. I don't think a soul chooses to suffer, it just chooses the best situation available for whatever it is trying to achieve. And a soul certainly doesn't want to stay in a state of suffering. We should...

    really? you're bring up Fox news. A story about a boat being trapped in some ice, to show that the ice hasn't been reducing for the last 30 years? A few storms counters 30 years of data? And you say Scientific America isn't worth considering? I'm out of here.

    wow, that is a sweeping generalization! How many of these people do you know, how many have you heard interviewed? How many of these peoples books have you read? I suspect climate science is such a massive area (psi science is absolutely tiny in comparison). If you only look at the debunking it...

    I was talking in a more general case. The only things I have to go on regarding your opinion is what you have denied in this thread, such as the arctic ice disappearing (where the link you gave me actually confirmed that it was). You are also denying that we are living in a mass extinction...

    The difference here is that there are two sides of the scientific argument. With Psi, there isn't. There no large body of research that shows that Psi is wrong. The mainstream science of Psi research is all fairly consistent with nothing to contradict it, apart from a few outlying pseudo...

    Prima means premium doesn't it? That's not necessarily renewable tax. Unless it specifically states that somewhere I wouldn't make the assumption, the premium could cover all sorts of things. And that's only 21.8% anyway, you can't then add on the general Tax that won't have anything to do with...

    Are you sure you linked to the right graph? It doesn't even mention 42%. This is what it shows: taxation 20.1% misc 6.6% distribution 12.8% transport 3.7% raw 21.8% energy 35%

    The first link says "The electricity bill would drop to 65% by eliminating the 'political costs'". It then breaks down this percent by the different taxes, unless I'm mistaken it doesn't mention eco taxes at all (I'm using google translator, so please point out the line if I've missed it). The...

    A quick scan of the link that you posted says that green taxes are between 6% and 11%. That's quite different from the 65% that you are quoting.

    The graphs that you showed me show that while the levels may have had a slight upward trend in the last few months, over a 30 year period, they are all trending down. You can't tell anything by looking on a monthly scale, these things take decades to show a trend. If you look at the graph that I...

    I'm sure with your in-depth knowledge you can summarize it for us? (I'm not being sarcastic, you've obviously looked into all this already)

    I'm also interested in this. It's been brought up a few times how people are being made poorer by green taxes etc. but I haven't seem any evidence for this at all. There are many reasons for the gross inequality in wealth, I personally wouldn't even put climate policies in the top 100 reasons...

    My mistake, I see. But unless I'm still misinterpreting it, the averages are still all lower, for every month. The grey line is the average over a 29 year period, which is why the reduction doesn't look as bad as if you compared it against the average 29 years ago. How do you explain away the...

    Those graphs only show a few months worth of data so I can't tell anything from that. The graph for the last 30 years seems to show a dramatic decline though.

    Michael, what is your source for this? I haven't heard this reported anywhere, I've only heard the opposite.
