Dragons! Seriously?
That was my reaction too :lol: Agree with him or not at least he's amusing.

I think the following is the sort of thing FF was alluding too? Ignore the douchey title and to skip to 1min 45secs. Bit off the orignal topic but relevent to the discussion.

Oh dear you have invoked the name "Douglas Murray", prepare for an assault from any resident SJWs.

You will notice some have already called to "cancel" this thread.

Joe is hilarious, but you just cant give much serious credibility to any program that has to use fleshlight and online encryption/anonymity services as their primary sponsors! Lends a bit of insight into the primary target audience.
The fleshlight is an old old sponsor, Joe has been at this now for 10 years. He does intentionally do things to throw people off to the actual content of his podcast, the logo for one. You need to overcome the small but real psycological barrier of "Not judging a book by it's cover".

On dragons, if you listen to what is discussed it is quite plausible. After all there is evidence and record of some very amazing things that have been alive with humans like Gigantopithecus.

The alien stuff? Yes certainly. I am strawmanning you. I know you certainly don't mean bacteria etc on mars, but actually little green men.

So physics describes the climate as a system of oscillations because of uneven energy distribution. We are on one oscillations end currently, a warm end. We should transition back to the cold one, but CO2 will make a difference and may even prevent it. I don't think current CO2 will prevent it but much higher CO2 may, say 1500ppm. The transition to an ice age could be as long as 1000years away or as little as now. It is likely it will be quite obvious when it starts, and it is not obvious now given we are warming and not cooling.

What seems to be the key to slipping into an ice age is the reflectivity of the planet. For that ice coverage is the factor. The orbital conditions to grow more ice have been met but ice cover is still quite static or even slightly dropping so it looks as if CO2 is doing something. If temperatures start long trending down then that would signal time for true alarm. It is not something I think really we will worry about but future generations. We could guarantee less chance for an ice age by continuing to pump CO2 like we are. It will also grant other benefits through plants to us. It is likely I think we may have to do more with other green house gases to warm the planet. :-) Lest we become a frozen ball like mars. And yes I know it is more complicated than that and mars is cold because it has little atmosphere.

:o :o :o Very suprised to read this from you. JRE is awesome, the list of interesting topics and people is endless... you learn more in a few eps of that than you ever will watching the news. Never paid attention to the sponsors... I know you know that's a bs comment. Still, fleshlight lol.

'Agree with him or not at least he's amusing'...haha, I meant FF but yeah, Rogans stand ups are great.

I thought he was the one posting the most. :thumb:
Anyway it is not considered rude to abuse nice people who care about the planet and its many peoples or is he a kicking post when you've had a bad day ,but I really don't care ,I understand its not a subject people want to confront, which does surprize me this attitude from family people , but thx for your participation -now rip that apart , and only quote the bits where you might get you a laugh :rollgrin:

when all the time the Australia burns and high winds today again , and big fires expecting to grow and join up with other big fires , where and when will it end
just ask any Australian, is this a product of climate change , 3months of summer yet to go after 3years of drought and very dry conditions and this is just a taster of whats to come in our future world :protest2:

but as I say , abuse away if that's your thing , I am here to point out the damage we have done and still doing and I will not go away -you mother fuckers are going to listen , because this is more important than me getting your friendship :D

Yes. The spam is strong in this one.

I think some of the comments thrown your way are extremely childish and unnecessary, but you are not exactly contributing much to the more reasonable part of the discussion yourself in my opinion.
