Here's another letter:

And they even have a section of signatories and their credentials:

http://www.copenhagenclimatechallenge.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=64

And just because 31,000 or 140 scientists are a 'small percentage' of the scientific community, that doesn't mean the rest of those who didn't sign disagree with those who did sign.

I'm not one to say these signature mean AGW is wrong... All I'm saying is that its not a uncontested belief.

Oh, and before I go, take a look at the IPCC, the 'the leading body for the assessment of climate change' (http://www.ipcc.ch). They are working groups of 'experts' who push the belief in AGW. How many of them were qualified? Take a look: http://uddebatt.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/ipcc-80-percent-of-its-members-where-not-climate-scientists/

You're not alone in asking that question. Apparently 31,000+ scientists are holding the same doubts as you: http://www.petitionproject.org/ but you know how it goes... the more you keep repeating something (or the louder you state it) the more inclined people will be to accept it. Science has its staunch supporters who are just as closed minded over their beliefs as are the extremist in religion.

Visual Studio 2010 Forces Tab Indenting 390

Posted by kdawson
from the one-man's-readable dept.
An anonymous reader writes "For years, Microsoft has allowed Visual Studio users to define arbitrary tab widths, often to the dismay of those viewing the resultant code in other editors. With VS 2010, it appears that they have taken the next step of forcing tab width to be the same as the indent size in code. Two-space tabs anyone?"

Computers will not be perfected until they can compute how much more than the estimate the job will cost.

Working...
