SKYMTL writes "In a tongue-in-cheek commentary, Valve has announced the delay of Portal 2 and thrown water on the rumor fires regarding its E3 'surprise.' This surprise was rumored to be either Half-Life 3 or the revival of Duke Nukem, and it looks like neither will happen anytime soon."
I'm all for blowing sh*t up but there is some sad irony that a company named iRobot is developing a weaponized robot while the man who wrote "I, Robot" also wrote the three laws of robotics forbidding fictional robots from harming humans.
What temperature is the earth “supposed” to be? What baseline are we saying it is warming or cooling against? "It only looks that way if you specifically and only compare 1998 to 2008, which as anyone with a clue knows is a stupid way to analyze trends" What period of time should we compare it against to determine a trend? A hundred years? A thousand? A million? My point is (as was yours) that if you pick the right time slice, you can find the numbers that fit your any theory you want. Warming. Cooling. Changing. I have a strong suspension that the climate has been changing (at differing rates) and always will change (at differing rates), with or without us.
