  1. The military spending issue is something Liberals and Conservatives have failed on.
  2. The problem as we can see here is that arguing with deniers makes them think their ideas are on the same level as a scientist who studies the topic. It's no different than arguing with Holocaust deniers and Armenian genocide deniers. They aren't interested in coming to a consensus academically. They simply want a platform to disseminate their lies as widely as possible to convince as many people as possible. It's political not scientific.
  3. The hockey stick graph has not been debunked since other studies have supported Mann's findings. He has lost one case due to delay. The merits of each side has not been heard or ruled upon. the others are still working it's way through the system.
  4. So far denialists have failed to produce any evidence for their claims that AGW is not real.
  5. In other words the procurement process is a mess as I said.
  6. Military procurement needs to be redone so gaining new and better equipment is done rapidly but no party really seems interested in tackling the issue.
  7. You are correct. My mistake.
  8. I found these resources to be quite fascinating and very good for starting on different topics in history. https://www.reddit.com/r/badhistory https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/
  9. Emergency powers gives the government the power to ignore agreements and rights.
  10. You mean they don't make hypothesis and a test such as they do in the sciences so in your mind that invalidates anything the humanities have to say. Except there is no way to quantify culture in a way that is testable. Here is my citation: http://shc.stanford.edu/why-do-humanities-matter, http://shc.stanford.edu/how-humanities-research-conducted
  11. They do. Researching human experiences all over the world furthers our understanding of the societies they inhabit.
  12. It isn't universities jobs to make people job ready. That is the job for the person choosing to go to university. Also if we are going to attack humanities I'd like to point out plenty of the Sciences do not translate to a job as well.
  13. None of the evidence has been tried because he took a plea deal after being tortured and his rights violated by Canada. There was no proof offered to the court because there was never a chance to do so when he took a plea deal.
  14. That arrangement would leave the central provinces at the mercy to provinces with access to bodies of water for shipping.
  15. You are making a lot of baseless assumptions on my views and positions. Quite telling you are relying on a red herring as an argument rather than countering my points.
