No, a camrip is pointing a camera at the screen. A screener means a pre-release DVD/BR version of the movie distributed to movie festivals, celebrity reviewers, etc, usually these have identifying information overlaid at some position on the screen (which the ripper can blur out).

So you didn't even read TFS. If you did you'd see how ocean surface temperatures can affect temperatures lower down.

But you're beyond not trying to answer your own questions. You've become a tinfoil-hatted conspiracy theorist, while a real, factually provable conspiracy operates to maintain your belief.

Did someone who isn't a strawman actually tell you that?

Here's an explanation I've posted further up in the thread:

http://slashdot.org/comments.p...

Anyone who said the drop in surface temperatures wasn't happening was an idiot. Someone should have told you that suggesting that this fact meant global warming had halted or reversed was highly misleading and ignorant. In fact I'll dig through my emails to see if I ever pointed this out to you myself, I know I have to many others.

The "hiatus" is real, but can be presented as a hoax.

Presented as an unexplained break in global warming, it's a hoax. It's been known for a long time that the oceans were absorbing the heat. To suggest that global warming has mysteriously been on "hiatus" due to a drop in surface temperatures alone is highly misleading.

An analogy I've used before is someone predicting that a roof leak will cause a bucket to fill at a certain rate. But then it turns out that there is a small hole in the side of the bucket and when the water reaches it, it starts leaking out onto the floor. The "hiatus" hoax is to say "See, your predictions about the roof leak were wrong, alarmist! Look at how the bucket hasn't filled to the level you've predicted!"

Wasted depends on if it is or isn't reality.

If global warming is an issue, we've not really 'wasted' anything.

If it is an issue, you could point to many things, carbon credits be the first thing that comes to mind since it seems to be coming up often lately. Though I would argue that curbing CO2 output is good for our lungs regardless of the global warming situation.

All the time spent investigating it, all the scientists spending time working on it, politics related to it, this discussion is an example of possible waste due to global warming ... IF its more than just a natural cycle.

You don't get to question Einstein just because.

Actually, you do. Thats what makes it science.

In science, to do the methodology properly, you are NEVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES supposed to 'believe' you 'know' ANYTHING. Ever.

You seem to think that certain things are supposed to be believed regardless of conflicting evidence and only with substantial proof against what you WANT to believe, then its questionable. Thats exactly the opposite of proper science.

Science is completely centered around questioning the theories and accepted ideas, constantly.

Yesterday I read an article that mentioned the number of Austrian Muslims that have gone to fight for ISIS, and the number of Muslims living in Austria.

I punched those numbers into my calculator and it said that 0.0002% of Austrian Muslims are ISIS-level nutbags. Are you going to label an entire religion over the actions of a nutbag fringe?

Your bigotry has been unfounded the entire time.
