  1. It's not that simple. Migration is an issue and as usual left-leaning politicians and scientists will look the other way but priority for the moment should be power generation as it's the lowest hanging fruit. How do you handle the source of that population growing in numbers in developing countries is another matter. Telling them that they must stay poor or that they must educate their population (yay for next best thing to sterilization) is quite the hypocrisy on our part. That and part of methane does breaks down into CO2 so it accumulates to some extend.
  2. I stand corrected but the point stands. The obsession with planting flags, leaving boot-prints and making nonsensical inspirational speeches is only holding us back. Robotic exploration is good enough mean to look for reasons to venture beyond this planet.
  3. Only 3 countries have manged to land probes on moon so far. That's despite considerable prizes for commercial companies and recent attempts by national space agencies of India and Israel. Economics of human space explorations are not there and may never make sense.
  4. So US spy satellite capabilities are now much better known. https://qz.com/1699833/what-we-can-learn-from-the-spy-satellite-image-trump-tweeted/ 10cm per pixel from orbit. Pretty impressive stuff.
  5. For Poland there was no flow to speak off (just some isolated cases), it ended with outright refusal to take mandated refugees (or migrants) anyway.
  6. Larian has a history of teasing with BS to build hype. I'll believe it when it's announced.
  7. This is just a sad indication of what happens with no used sales and mostly digital distribution. Not long ago we were told that without physical inventory we will be swimming in great sale deals. Now publishers get to say just how cheaply you are allowed to get games.
  8. Not really. With 2 sides to every story and cheery-picking 'facts' you can come to great many conclusions about events. Cause and effect is never straightforward in human societies. US civil war is a pretty good example since IIRC south didn't even regard Gettysburg as a major defeat at the time.
  9. No threat of soviet union to keep people in line this time. Being the lesser evil helps enormously.
  10. That's mostly buying credits, offsets and lies of statistic. Sadly oil will stay vital for a long time to come.
  11. All well and good but what would you suggest? Pretty much every soft-power approach has been tried and Venezuela is still rushing to be the next Cuba. Perhaps aside from outright assassination or invasion of course. And these didn't work out so well in Cuba.
  12. Is there anything more than the 3 pages of bullet points?
  13. Are AC heroes no longer required to procreate to be featured? That was a bigger plot point of the earlier ones.
  14. Meaning... something even worse will come along, championed by some clueless suit promising the board an eleventy trillion yearly revenue, only for the model to crash and burn half a decade later? I can't wait. Maybe except for the crashing and burning part. Micro-transactions have not gone away and I doubt service model will either. In the end, money talks.
  15. Their stance is that corporate money fits really snugly in their pocket. like on other side of spectrum is it any different Tell me about that immense amount of lobbying money that goes towards pushing climate change action.

I think 'Act now on climate' has just dropped about million $ for one democratic candidate. Anyway that is a pittance compared to what invested industries can do.
