How many people can they mobilize within their respective department? I hope it’s enough to stop these evil wasps I imagine it would be enough to find any possible nest and remove them. Do you have any factual evidence to support your imagination, or are you just building hornet-free castles in the...

But WEDGE ANTILLES CAMEO! But due to the wonders of the internet, and people who perhaps aren't interested in the fine points of intellectual property law, it is possible to watch not only that few seconds of well-deserved fanservice, but also all the bits of the movie that contain Lando Calrissian...

Ah, such a wonderful little machine! Practically nothing inside it, but it did a surprising amount of work with that little bit of hardware.

I realize you spend most of your time in Gotham, but Chicago is usually considered in the Midwest. The city is very flat and spread out, and I don't mean the land: one reason it's grown so broad is because any building taller than three stories must have an elevator. As a result, it's a city of thr...

It wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't a hard-on in this country for building vast areas of detached and semi-detached suburbia with virtually no public transport connections which builds-in car dependency. Public transportation is hard to support in a lot of suburbs. One of the books I have on mass...

And so? The causes are not germane to what to do now . :eyebrow: I'm guessing you don't have a lot of experience with American cities. Chicago, the one I'm most familiar with, is about 30 miles (50km) north-south. That's just to the city limits, not the huge urban and suburban areas that stretch fr...

As the research in Delhi, India showed, 70% of pollution seems to be coming from within cities, sure home and other things contribute but I'd suspect the major contributor is the constant thrum of cars, busses, trucks and other vehicles. Perhaps. What are the vehicle pollution rules like there? Wha...

How do you deal with cities that are more spread out? They're spread out because of the incredible levels of subsidisation that occurs with cars. And so? The causes are not germane to what to do now . This does not mean they require cars to traverse, just that cars have been completely prioritised....

Well hopefully Game and Fish can find any colonies before this gets serious. They’re at that, but it’s not easy. These hornets are extremely aggressive, even at night which is iirc when entomologists try to capture/destroy their nests, and the queens can fly far in a day. Their sting can breach alm...

Setting out to debunk from the beginning is lazy. Also silly. Let people who claim they're any specific thing attempt to prove that first, with the usual caveat about extraordinary claims. "There are things in the air that the US government is unable to identify" I am shocked, shocked , I...

That isn't false info. That's an opinion. No it isn't. It is a factual claim, and a false one - even if it was inevitable that the disease would become endemic, it would still be the case that slowing it would reduce the death toll by orders of magnitude. Almost certainly, but not entirely certainl...

We need to help the coywolves and coydogs migrate east to refill predator niches and keep the deer in check. *nods* As someone that lives on the east coast, that's a hard pass on that idea.

We need to help the coywolves and coydogs migrate east to refill predator niches and keep the deer in check. *nods* That would be interesting, because coyotes (and their relatives) can adapt to almost any environment. I’m not sure they would help with deer though. Even coywolfs and coydogs usually ...

There's no way to have a meaningful discussion about this without getting slapped for bad faith posting. Why?
