Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
You really need to stop being the problem.
Educate me, then. And try to keep Rand out of it.
Not my job, but just to point you in the right direction, Ayn Rand had no love for libertarians http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexi...
What i have been seeing are the adds that disguise themselves and then make it impossible to navigate away from them. One of these days I would love to see one of these clowns in court explaining how it was just good business to trick the viewer and then trap them.

I know that libertarians talk a good game,
In your case, it's pretty clear it's not what you don't know, but what you do know that's just wrong.
Try reading what you are saying.
Total ice coverage increasing = confirmation of warming
Total Sea ice increasing = confirmation of warming
Active volcano melting ice = confirmation of warming
Prediction no ice on the poles by 2005 = ?????
I am sorry what is it about ice being melted by volcanoes escaped your notice ?
Despite that the coverage area is still increasing
Methuselah sprouted back in 2005, when agriculture expert Solowey germinated his antique seed. It had been pulled from the remains of Masada, an ancient fortification perched on a rock plateau in southern Israel, and at the time, no one could be sure that the plant would thrive. But he has, and his recent reproductive feat helps prove just how well he’s doing.
For a while, the Judean date palm was the sole representative of his kind: Methuselah’s variety was reportedly wiped out around 500 A.D. But Solowey has continued to grow date palms from ancient seeds discovered in the region, and she tells National Geographic that she is “trying to figure out how to plant an ancient date grove.” Doing so would allow researchers to better understand exactly what earlier peoples of the region were eating and how it tasted.

The new study of 11,309 drinking water wells in northeastern Pennsylvania concludes that background levels of methane in the water are unrelated to the location of hundreds of oil and gas wells that tap hydraulically fractured, or fracked, rock formations. The finding suggests that fracking operations are not significantly contributing to the leakage of methane from deep rock formations, where oil and gas are extracted, up to the shallower aquifers where well water is drawn.
The result also calls into question prominent studies in 2011 and 2013 that did find a correlation in a nearby part of Pennsylvania. There, wells closer to fracking sites had higher levels of methane. Those studies, however, were based on just 60 and 141 domestic well samples, respectively.
The article outlines in detail the many disagreements and uncertainties of both the old studies and this new one. It also however contains this one key quote about the earlier studies, buried in the text, that illustrates the politics influencing the reporting of the anti-fracking research:
The two papers seemed to show that fracking was leading to increased concentrations of methane in drinking water. Dissolved methane is not toxic, and drinking water often contains significant background levels of the gas from natural sources.
Earlier studies were top media stories. They were used to show the harm fracking does, and were the justification for the banning of fracking in New York. Yet, the methane they found was not necessarily caused by fracking, and isn’t even a health concern anyway.
Will the press give this new report as much coverage? It might not be right, but it sure does indicate that the science is unsettled, and that the risks from fracking are overblown."

Want to explain just how atmospheric CO2 triggers vulcanism ?
But please keep on proving Emily Dickinson correct about the perils of an unexamined life.
see the real definition of 'left'.
no one on the left would support a hate-bill like this. sorry, but you have no clue what left means if you think this.
I doubt you understand a word of what you are talking about.
And have no idea what the small government right in America is about, or what the totalitarian left are up to.
Are you running an over under on how long it takes you to forget this graph and start repeating the pure B.S. you have been fed ?
