Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

"...there are a whole lot of scientists out there saying the opposite of what you're saying..."

Name one. The ozone layer has been depleted and that continues. I think you have misunderstood the fact that the rate of depletion has declined to mean that the ozone layer is back to normal. It does not mean that by any but the most imaginative interpretation.

Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

Well Scott, again, there is such a thing as conservation of energy, this planet has oceans that have many times the heat capacity of the atmosphere, and the oceans have continued to warm. That's just reality. So, saying the earth's temperature is not increasing is more an indictment of your understanding than a demonstration that all the models are not useful.

Not sure where you are from Scott, but on this planet, we still have ozone depletion.

I know; if a scientist tells you something you don't like, they must be wrong.

And the Episcopalians, who happen to be Christian.

Gay marriage now legal in Kansas

Why do you think you know God's will any more than the rest of us?

Gay marriage now legal in Kansas

The judicial branch is there to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. If it was a only a matter of votes, the minority would have no protection at all. Fair? It's not fair that you do not get to impose your views on everyone? That strikes me as an odd sort of fairness.

Gay marriage now legal in Kansas

Yes! And on top of that, it is a little vindication that our system of checks and balances, executive, legislative, and judicial, does still work, even if it takes a dang long time.

Kansas asks appeals court to stay marriage ruling

Why do you think the government should have the authority to tell two consenting adults whether or not they can marry?

Kansas asks appeals court to stay marriage ruling

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

So, how many of the people supporting the prohibition of same-sex marriage would be willing to tell their spouse that their marriage has nothing to do with their pursuit of happiness? How many of them would be willing to give up the liberty to marry the person of their choosing?

School funding key with one week left in Kansas governor's race

I noticed Brownback's claim that Kansas schools rank #5 in the nation, and I wondered where that came from. There seems to be some agreement between WalletHub's (who?) #5 and ALEC's ranking of #8, but much disparity between them and US News and World Report's ranking of #47.
