Whether the climate is changing is settled, because it always changes. Whether human activity is a factor is settled, because it does. So far so good. Unfortunately, however, the effect of that activity on future climate is not at all settled, and that's unfortunate because it's the question that actually matters.

It may be more fun to rant on the internet about the bad cop who doesn't respect a citizen's rights, but it's probably more productive in terms of restoring the chilly relations between LEOs and citizens to let the cop know you didn't take his probing personally, and that by respecting your rights (even if it took a few minutes to do so) he's demonstrated he's one of the good cops, not one of the bad cops.
He's demonstrated no such thing. All this shows is that he's afraid of the repercussions for breaking what constraints on their behavior are still in place.
If you're so clever, show us your system which does this. Oh, wait, you don't have one, do you?
Shyeah right, like I'd tell you.
You must be new here.
Why not call it "Flight of fancy"?
That would be a plane painted to look like it's wearing a tuxedo. Paint some white gloves on the wingtips, spats on the tail, and all that.
Imagine if google and bing decided that a certain candidate didn't exist and the name only returned some unrelated items. No news article links, no info sites, nothing.

Although that was an independent campaign to influence Google results rather than an action internal to Google.
Have you ever even met a teenager? It doesn't take Google in schools to get them using computing devices, this is something that they will happily do on their own non-fucking-stop.
I thought crossing the streams was bad?
But if they disbanded they wouldn't be able to keep serving their true constituency so ably.

They still fly the flag of Byzantium at Mount Athos, so for that and other reasons they might have a better claim on being an ember of the Roman polity.
Eliminating subsidies for agricorps would help restore some balance on that. There's no good reason to continue meat and dairy subsidies.
What naysayers forget is that with Wikipedia's model, if it can be vandalized by anyone it can also be corrected by anyone. You don't have to eliminate vandals to develop massive amounts of accurate content this way, you just have to have the constructive participants be more dedicated than the disruptive ones.
