“It now appears that there exists a clear relationship between the global warming and earthquakes and other under earth activities,” writes Dr. Vivek Kumar Srivastava, an assistant professor at India’s Kanpur University.
“This fear is not unfounded, as there is increased water quantity in the oceans, and inside earth zones experience increased pressures,” he writes on the website, Countercurrents.,org
“Global warming has many aspects, but one aspect which requires a deep study is related to its capacity to change the pressure attribute of the earth sphere,” Srivastava says. “These pressure changes have impact on the pressure belts in the atmosphere; these have impact on the ocean water and subsequent impact on the inside area of the earth.”
What should be the top priority of the American government in the next decade or so?
Title says it all.
Personally, I'd probably say that global warming SHOULD be top priority because otherwise the human race is pretty much screwed, and ignoring it doesn't change that. But that's just me, and I am not educated on all the going on's in the world, and there are lots of other thigns to talk about. What do you expect will be the talking points in the upcoming election, and what should be the talking points in the upcoming election?
I only met this women yesterday and she is stalking me but she accuses me of copying her debates when she is the one copying mine. I don't have to stand for this.
I posted this: http://www.createdebate.com/debate/show/Do_prolifers_respect_women_s_freedom_of_belief
and she immediately posted this: http://www.createdebate.com/debate/show/Does_the_proabortion_activists_respect_the_unborn_child_s_right_to_choose
I don't even know her and she is calling me a doll and send me a message that she is my enemy. :( I'm new here but don't think I will be staying long with this cyber bullying. It is torture and against my rights.
Islamaphobia, or anti-muslim sentiment is extremely prominant, and extremely accepted in society. Even though terrorist groups and actions have been done by isolated people, the country has united against the billion+ people who are members of the religon. So much so, that the republican party fought to show Obama as a Muslim, as if that discredited him as a presidential canidate. What can/should be done about this, or anything? Or what is your opinion on Islamaphobia in general? Some argue that islamaphobia is the most accepted form of discrimination in the United States. Do you agree?
I know Libprolifer doesn't really understand what she says most of the time but I wonder if other prolifers share her opinion. It is hypocritical for someone that is prolife to say they respect a womans freedom of belief that the fetus is not a life / is a life but can be killed / is a malvolent parasite etc etc?
Will the Supreme Court rule in favor of Same-Sex Marriage?
This Tuesday will mark the beginning of arguments for a case that many believe will end with the Supreme Court recognizing a right to same sex marriage akin to the recognized civil right for heterosexual marriage. My question is two fold: Do you believe that the Equal Protections and Due Process Clauses of the United States Constitution apply to marriage (recognized as a civil right beginning in Loving v. Virginia and reaffirmed many times), and if not why? Additionally, with Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomoyor and Kagan almost certainly rulling for, and Thomas, Alito and Scalia almost certainly ruling against, do you believe that Kennedy and Robberts will vote for or against, and why?http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/26/us-usa-court-gaymarriage-justices-idUSKBN0NH0GE20150426
