Hmm...Let's try the top two from 1962 to 1997." From the paper: "We use the Hadley Centre global land-based gridded climate extremes data set (HadEX)4, which is based on daily observations from 6,000 stations and covers the period 1951-2003. We...

Most atmospheric CO2 is generated by the oceans, followed by the exhalations of animals. Human generated atmospheric CO2 is less than 4% of the total. In the Jurassic era, atmospheric CO2 was 9X greater than at present--didn't seem to hurt the dinos much, they went on for tens of millions of years. In the recent past, some scientists have...

The global warming "machine" has thrived on ruthless suppression of contrary evidence, "science" that is at best sloppy, at...
The 1986 and 1990 PA gubnatorial elections made my case. The 1990 election was a bit of a technicality, since Barbara Hafer joined the Democratic Party a little later, but she was a Republican at the time of the election. Thanks for your help fellas
Does anyone know of an election on any level (national would be better) where a pro-choice Republican ran against a pro-life Democrat? I know this is tough to find, but it must have happened somewhere. This information can help me win an argument.
If you want to get all abstract about it, tell me: On what basis can we claim ownership of things? Really, the concept of property is just a construction of law. Same as ideas. Both were conceived because the world is better that way.

Can anyone comment on the fit? Where did you buy this version with the lug sole? I can't find it

If they had such conclusive evidence, they would not have to take such measures to manipulate, hide and then destroy the data used. Consider, as one example, the evidence that the atmospheric CO2 increases AFTER the earth warms, not before. Warmer seas do not hold as much in solution. Is that physics? This myth has been addressed...
If anyone is interested, here is the letter Hal Lewis sent to APS members on December 4th, 2009: It might give some context. The "Statement" to which he is referring is the APS statetment on Climate Change which Lewis asks to be reviewed in-light of climategate. Quote: Dear fellow member of the American Physical Society: This is a matter of great importance to the integrity of the Society. It is being sent to a random fraction of the membership, so we hope...
