Re: Which work would you like me to refute? (Bobbapink)

You provided sources? Lets see. What is the source of the following statements you made?

"Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Almost half of its population lives below the (politically established) poverty line.
Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, providing a livelihood for over 80% of the population. Lessee. What can we do that is beneficial to their way of life - agriculture? Hey - here's an idea! We could increase the production of greenhouse gases thus warming the earth slightly and affording them a somewhat longer growing season (and IMO stabilize the chaotic climate a bit). That might help. Additionally, you could write a letter to King Gyanendar (I think he's still king - might be dead by now) or PM Koirala-Gyanendra (assuming he's still alive - don't really know) and encourage them to build more dams for hydroelectric production. YOu might even consider visiting the "region". I hear it's quite beautiful (but don't drink the water)"

Do I see a peer reviewed journal? No!
Do I see a newspaper or magazine? No!
Do I see a URL? No!
Do I see a radio program? No!
Do I see the even the National Enquirer? No!

What the .... do you mean by "I provided references"? You did not. What you did was wax poetic without even the benefit of iambic pentamenter.

The hot air is contributing to global warming.

The point I am trying to make is that if this is happening, and I've seen nothing to make me think otherwise, why don't you feel any compassion for the people who will lose in the process. Is your point that poor people just don't matter to you? If so I will agree. Poor people don't seem to matter to you.
