Since when does disagreeing mean that someone is being willfully ignorant? Science is driven by dissent.

Additionally, what does this have to do with old people voting? This forum has too many tangents.

Climate change: this is the worst scientific scandal of our generation

Source #1: an opinion piece written by somebody with no expertise in the matter, also known for denying the health effects of secondary smoke (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/155611 ... ebook.html) and asbestos (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews ... ebook.html). Just all-around laughable.

Source #2: a decade-old article describing out-of-context emails.

See above. No training in or knowledge of actual climate science.

Opinion piece by the same guy as Source #1, which sources a fucking blog for its main argument and exhibits a staggering ignorance of how data works.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/20/busi ... bates.html

So, in summary, you have cited two real articles and three opinion pieces. The real articles are both many years old and based on sensationalized, out-of-context emails. You had the opportunity to choose any sources for these claims, and these are the best you could come up with? This is more pathetic than I could have ever imagined.

Having worked the polls for several years I can attest to this. I find when seniors come to vote they can be among the nastiest people especially elderly poll workers. One women i worked with rolled her eyes whenever someone non white came into vote.

There are many 18 year olds who actually are rather well informed. Just because you do not agree with them is no reason to disenfranchise them.

Next?

Ok, boomer

Old people should be allowed to vote, but so should 16 year olds.

Nope. If you are unable to make and be held responsible for contracts, you should not vote.

16 years olds are considered more than old enough to be subject to the social contract regarding criminal actions.

This idea has its pros and cons. If old people couldn't vote then stupidly idiotic things like Brexit and Tory government after Tory government wouldn't happen which is a major major plus, BUT it would be rather undemocratic so it's not really the wisest idea.

Where? If anything, the laws already shield them from being tried as adults or are being changed in most places in the US NOT to try them as adults.

They can't sign a contract, they can't drink alcohol, they can't vote -- nope. Sorry.

The US is weird regarding alcohol. Most other countries 16 year olds can drink in certain situations, including in bars and restaurants. And 16 year olds might not be tried as adults for the most part but they are certainly tried and punished under laws they have no say in. A 16 year old can open a bank account and sign an employment contract in the UK without parental consent so they can sign contracts.

So all we have left is that they can't vote, except when they were allowed to in the Scottish independence referendum. Oops.

Rebuttal #5: this article consists mostly of ad hominem attacks against Dr. Bates, alongside the extensive utilization of the guilt by association fallacy and begging the question (for example, the article states “The Mail on Sunday, together with its sister tabloid, The Daily Mail, in the past has been accused of publishing work that disputed the widely held scientific belief that warming is the result of human activity,” which is both the genetic fallacy and also dogmatically assumes the very thing in question: the existence of anthropogenic global warming).

Here is a credible source that explains the basic data methodology behind the ClimateGate scandal, as well as displaying some of the actual EMail messages.

Cekoviu wrote:…these are the best you could come up with? This is more pathetic than I could have ever imagined.

I am a tolerant person, but I draw the line at this sort of disrespectful dialogue. I believe that people honestly can hold differing beliefs based on the data and information, and I know that science in particular thrives on dissent in order to progress. It is for this reason that I even spent the time to address you, and you paid me back with rudeness and animosity.

I shall spend no more time on someone such as yourself, and I only hope that in the future others may be able to discuss openly and honestly without such vitriol, perhaps even you.

Farnhamia wrote:That's not what the thread is about.

Exactly, and that is why I shall let sleeping dogs lie and agree to disagree. If anyone wants honest, polite discussion of this matter, then I would be happy to engage in such on an appropriate forum thread.

Interesting! I was unaware of this fact. Still, I think that the voting age should at least be the age of majority (eighteen), and perhaps even raised back to twenty-one except maybe in the armed services, although in my opinion this should be a state and local issue.

Either way, I think the drinking age in the United States is way too high, and it is enforced in a highly dubious manner that interferes with states’ rights. The drinking age is a state and local issue. In my opinion, there should not be a legal drinking age at all, but it should be the responsibility of the person’s parents. I say this as a strict teetotaler!

In Scotland, there was a vote in 2015 that extended the vote to 16/17 year olds for all Scottish Parliament and local elections. In Wales, there are plans to reduce the voting age to 16 for local and Welsh Assembly elections (in 2021). In Northern Ireland, you need to be 18.

The UK dependencies of Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Jersey also allow 16 year olds to vote.

Personally, I'm not convinced one way or the other on lowering the voting age.

I don't dispute that. But taking away the votes of the sensible old people won't do anything to combat them.
