Microsoft has in the past complained that Google Inc., which manages Android, has blocked its programs from the operating system."
Haha, cry us a river Microsoft. I'm all for an open platform but this investment is just step 1 of their embrace, extend, extinguish operating procedure. What's that quote about how smaller companies should NEVER work with MS?
Maybe some of the programmers who worked on that page could fix this mess? Yeah it's far from the greatest page in the history of the interwebs but it is more functional than this one. I'll bet its administrators are more responsive to user feedback as well.

The denialists will still come up with an alternate interpretation of cherry-picked data from some crackpot blog, to prove you wrong.
if the same data has been used to claim a warming trend and the same data is used to say otherwise I'd call that invalid data.

earth is primarily a self regulating eco-system leading to stability
Gaia is living, breathing, self stabilizing organism. Gaia actively maintains optimum conditions for live to thrive. If the sun fluctuates hotter, Gaia will keep us cool. If the sun fluctuates cooler, Gaia will keep us warm. We have released two quadrillion pounds (2,000,000,000,000,000) of CO2 into the atmosphere and the laws of physics say that will trap heat.... and Gaia will.... umm I dunno... but Gaia will do it's super-smart-Gaia-thing to to actively counter it and keep us in a loving protective embrace of shielded stability. If we have a nuclear war, Gaia will cleanse the environment and protect us from that nasty radiation-stuff. Gaia loves all life, gaia loves us and protects us. Gaia loves broadway shows and long walks on the beach. Gaia has profiles on eHarmony.com and JDate.com.

My emphasis. This is exactly what the OP is running into and he/she sounds like a buggy manufacturer in the age of automobiles. However, at least they recognize they need to finally learn some new tools after becoming too expensive for their clients if they want to stay in business. Hence the lazy Ask Slashdot question. I say "lazy" because they just need to do their homework since only they know what their needs are.
