Submission + - Breitbart misrepresents climate research from 58 scientific papers (

dywolf writes: From Climatefeedback: In an article for Breitbart, author James Delingpole claims to provide 58 scientific papers published in 2017 that show global warming to be “a myth”. This claim is sourced entirely from a list on a blog called “No Tricks Zone”. Delingpole claims “comfort” in “know[ing] that ‘the science’ is on our side”, but he can only do so by fundamentally misrepresenting the scientists’ research.

Climate Feedback reached out to authors of the scientific studies in the list of 58 papers that Delingpole claims “corroborate, independently and rigorously” his view that “‘man-made global warming’ just isn’t a thing.”

So far, 29 scientists have responded to our request for comment, and all 29 have replied “No” to the question, “Do you agree with the Breitbart article that your study provides evidence against modern climate change caused by human activities?”

Said Nathan Steiger, Postdoctoral Fellow, Columbia University: "The blog post maliciously tampered with figures from my paper, removing lines from the figures. My paper is just not relevant to the arguments about global warming."

Submission + - Physicists use quantum memory to demonstrate quantum secure direct communication (

schwit1 writes: For the first time, physicists have experimentally demonstrated a quantum secure direct communication (QSDC) protocol combined with quantum memory, which is essential for storing and controlling the transfer of information. Until now, QSDC protocols have used fiber delay lines as a substitute for quantum memory, but the use of quantum memory is necessary for future applications, such as long-distance communication over secure quantum networks.

The researchers, Wei Zhang et al., from the University of Science and Technology of China and Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, have published a paper on their experimental demonstration in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.

To be fair, America is fucking retarded when it comes to sex and genders. The puritans are still in control, and every time we make some headway into leaving the 1500s they go and throw a tantrum about how how it'll stop the conservatives from being able to molest children if trans people can go pee behind a closed door or some other mentally retarded bullshit like that.

Milo constantly promotes violence against anyone that isn't ultra conservative and white, and even instructed his cult of nazis to attack a trans woman he doxxed at one of his hate rallies.

Sorry, but he is scum, anyone who defends him is scum. None of his followers have any social, ethical or moral value and have no place in civilization.

They should go back to the caves they came from, and leave civilization to the people with IQ's over 80. After all, if you add all his followers IQ together you get a whopping 60.

Trump called it a muslim ban. The rest of your comments are outright lies. Obama never banned travel from Iraq, look it up. As for the 7 nations listed, sorry, but that came from infowars, not Obama.

Stop lying, Trump already has his Minister of falsehoods and personal state run media. It's called Kellyanne and Brietbart. The Baghdad bob of America position is filled.

If that were true then they'd get banned as well. What this is instead is a bunch of crybaby Nazis are bitching and whining about Reddit not giving them a platform to gather info on who they want to attack.

This is no different than Reddit banning Al Queda or ISIS, because the alt right Nazis are no different from them.

To see himself post?

It's like the people who post responses to questions on Amazon with "I don't know, I haven't opened it yet"

To people like this:
No one cares you haven't opened it/don't use it. If that's your comment, you aren't the target audience of the question. If we want to know the finer points of hog tying our sister and pulling a train on her, we'll ask you. Otherwise, stay out of intelligent conversation and leave it to those wanting to discuss the actual topic at hand.
