    acouplea things about this
    besides the fact that I didn’t know this guy came & went

    1. The Daily Show & lots of other sites sneak Flash cookies into your system
    (you can block them & when you do,
    you sometimes see the message attached)

    2. hydroponics is even worse than industrial farming
    (unsustainable, chemical laden, water destroying)

    3. the guy’s still on Uncle Homeland’s payroll, just collecting his $$ from another source

      What about vertical hydroponic farms? You can grow hydroponically and use organic nutrients. And power it with solar panels. Surely the water can be re-used for something. Obviously permaculture should be primary. But I think there is some uses for it in desolate areas and space exploration.

        hydroponics is a last resort
        mainly for growing pot indoors
        urban growing if there is no other way
        great experimental technology
        should climate change get really bad, really fast

        but hydro can’t replicate the soil/plant exchange process
        it requires a lot of energy to run
        (usually solar is not optimal in typical hydro situations)
        organic nutrients or not, it’s not optimal exchange conditions
        unless you can manufacture your own nutrients
        as well as, harvest, clean & recycle the water
        it’s not sustainable
        and a lot of work compared to permaculture/no till

    One of the better jobs they have done showing just how vapid and pointless the entire media complex is. Ratigan could be spending his time in a dark room jerking off, and it would still contribute more than any gig at MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, or whatever other mindless harbinger of the apocalypse cable “news” outlet you can name.

    I actually know people who think they are well-informed and forward-thinking because they watch The Daily Show.

    They couldn’t tell you what a Papal State was, or why Stalin killed Trotsky, but derive great satisfaction from denigrating anyone unfamiliar Samantha Bee’s work.
