Aaah... sorry for your waste of time typing.

In the article that you cite as Source of Wisdom and Holy Book in your crusade against Hysteria there are two considerable statistical Blunders (with capitals):

First of all: You cannot talk about statistical significance or not in a scalar value. You could with discrete values in a distribution that may seem random and where you could analyse if a given measure (such as the median or mean ) is or not statistically significant. BUT: This does NOT apply to single data point, sorry. AND this does not apply to a scalar.

Second of all: There is no need to ame a deep analysis to see if a number is higher than other/s, and if thsi is not obvious you will have to visit a doctor (a physic s this implies lost of grey matter, mate).

So mate, again, sorry for the calories you wanted typing, but your Guru needs a recap in statistics .

Should I point out the blunder of the 95%? I don't think is necessary, right?

What your dear potential girlfriend writes is nothing but gibberish.

Where is this described mate?

You anti-climate guys are constantly repeating this stupidity filling your mouth with "models that fail" as if it were true... but can you provide any link? And please not from the Inhofe fan club and NOT related to HAARP, Big Foot or Nazis on the moon.

Just a small issue to remember: I live in a country were we used to have skating postmen. It has been 17 years since we had out last Elfstedentocht:

But of course, the models are all failing and in fact this is not true: The Evil Climate Scientiest gather every winter here in Friesland and melt the ice in the channels with lighters.

In which way has the theory been falsified? Has AGW failed to predict that this past year would be warmer than the others before? Quite obviously NOT.

First of all, you are just answering to a random bloke who says some random idiocy pulled out of his ass. Where is the peer-reviewed evidence of all these "discrepancies ? I see it only among you climate deniers repeated as a mantra to see if it somehow becomes reality. None of you ever checks anything, Of course not: Knowing that half of you guys including your Gurus like Jimy Inhofe or Ted Cruz are Young Earth Creationists gives already a good idea of the quality of your judgements.

And meanwhile in Greenland:

"‘is it statistically significant?’"

Mate, the blokes at NASA send out the fucking satellites. If they are smart enough to put them out there without them crashing into your WC while you are taking a dump I would give the guys at least the benefit of doubt regarding them and the guys at NOAA knowing what they do and say. I would say that the probability of them being smarter than you Miss Indian Spice together are statistically significant.

Not to speak about the stupid question. of Ms Curry-Rice.

3,1,4,5 and 9 all have occult meanings!!

Number 3 represents the planet Mars and War, number 1 represents The Unity, for the Illuminati this is the Number of the Great Leader, the number 4 represents the 4 elements, the number 5 represents the Council of Five, the permanent members of the UN Security Council, better known among the Illuminati as the 5 Magnificent and the number 9 is the number of Beelzebub, the Demon of Climate and Hoaxes.

It is crystal clear. The IPCC, the Illuminati Pokemon Collectors Club, is planning to wage war on earth from their secret bases on Mars. The Great Leader will use HAARP to disrupt the atmosphere and create earthquakes and using chemtrails to convert everybody to Gaydom. Beelzebub will then raise and desecrate all the holy places. And all this will be done so that the dreaded Climate Scientists can make a living and to take away our guns and force us to believe in Evolution!!!

What he wanted to say is that they will push a law forward to teach the government personal and MP to read, write an basic arithmetic.

Nowadays us, the Western countries, such as the EU countries, the USA, Canada, etc are building our future on top level innovation, another source of income is attracting outside talent and students. A good example of that is my country, Holland, a pretty solid revenue for our universities are students from all over the world who come here to study and this means not only benefits for the universities but also for the rest of the economy, from housing to shopping.

But more importantly than that maybe is being able to create an environment that attracts both foreign talent and companies and this too works in synergy with the universities.

Large prestige operations such as ESA, CERN, etc are not only important for the scientists and basic research, they are important because they serve to showcase the level of infrastructure of a region and it's ability to house other projects and companies and the interest of these regions in maintaining and nurturing innovation.

With two radical anti-scientists such as Jim Inhofe and Ted Cruz in charge of institutions like NASA and similar the USA have already suffered a mayor damage to their image, just by their presence. And I am afraid that international talent will not be very attracted to your country if the conditions for them to work there are not attractive enough. Not to speak of possible reductions to agencies such as NOAA for instance given the hate this two fellows have against climate science and with disregard to the fact that predicting weather and climate is vital for the physical safety of your country.

Pity, but I take the opportunity to recall everybody that here in Good Old Europe we are open for business, and learning Dutch or German is still easier than learning Chinese ;)

UKIP is against anything that moves. I have been told that they have a RPG dice and that they use it to randomly choose something to be against every week.

They even launched a campaing against EU expats in the UK, no joking, they did! They wanted all of us Dutch, Germans, French, etc out of the islands because "we stole their jobs"... without even thinking for a second that the Brits are the biggest expat group in any of our countries. So that I wouldn't count whit these guys for anything.

And at the end of the that they just offer crap mongoloid solutions, Yes, we can send all the "nicht westliche Ausländer" (or as we say here "niet westerse allochtonen") back to the Jungle... but where do we send "back" the NSU guys? And all the future Breiviks?

As I told already: WE are all very fast in condemning the whole religion of this asshole prophet Muhammed, but when it comes to this other asshole, Jesus, nobody seems willing to raise a single voice, even if one single Christian fanatic in a single day managed to create as much havoc on European as any Islamic terrorists. And more are to come, I am perfectly shure.

The issue is that these motherfuckers instead of killing each other all target the same: Civilians, be it muslims, christians or atheists, they don't give a fuck.

Well, Anders Breivik wasn't a muslim, right ?

I still have to hear somebody say "Christianism, the Religion of Peace"

And neither your US native Hutaree, KKK and abortion doctor killers are Muslims, yet I am not hearing a single voice condemning Christianims, while it certainly deserves it.

There is not one single Religion of Peace, not a single one. It took only one fucking Christian to kill 6 time as many people as 3 fucking muslims, and it was here in Europe. Just imagine what they can do in your country. You can mostly spot a muslim, but who spots a Christian? Who suspected a blond guy in a land of blondes?

Now everybody is screaming loud against the whole Islam, yet not a single voice is raised when the butchers are the followers of this other piece of crap religion they call Christianism.

But do you know what pisses me of more? That many of these motherfucking right wing nuts who masturbate to Anders Breivik are now airing voices condemning the Paris shootings were 12 members of a leftist publication were shot, yes, leftist, the same that this same Christian fuckers are always more than willing to execute themselves, in the same way they do, in the same way they attack and execute personal of abortion clinics, blow up US government buildings (does Oklahoma ring a bell?).

Fuck all religions, at least the three based in these piece of shit books they call Torah, Bible and Quran. Fuck them. Fuck Jesus, Fuck Mohammed and Fuck Moses.

Mate, Eastern European Nations that are currently trainwkrecked have dome so all by their very own merits: Hungary was quite OK after the fall of the wall and have been screwing up their country since then with corrupt governments and are now trying to mimic Putin's Russia. While East Germany is now becoming wealthier than the traditionally wealthy west (being the new depressed zone is the Ruhrgebiet).

The Check Republic, the Slovaks and Poland are quite OK, same goes for the baltic states and Slovenia and Romania and Bulgaria are so-so. economy growing and decent standard of living, not as corrupt as Hungary and richer than old EU members such as Spain, Portugal or Greece...

Well, yes, there's these Ukrainians, etc, but nobody gives a fuck about these.

So much for your trainwrecked Eastern Europe mate. You shouldn't watch so much Fox and RT
