Closing the blog for a few days to update pictures that ReedYoung said were lies...
They are not lies.
He didn't read the article, just looked at some pictures.

ReedYoung has turned Huffington Post into a more toxic environment than you could imagine. And that's a shame, really, because Arianna Huffington had a great idea for people of ALL walks of life and ALL diverse of thinking to join and converse in a non-toxic manner.
Even her rules were simple.

 Community and Commenting Guiding Principles
The Huffington Post has a thriving user community and actively encourages commenting
on news stories and blog posts. We are dedicated to this community and strive to maintain
a respectful, engaging and informative conversation. Towards that end, we have general
guidelines for commenting. They are enforced 24/7 by a moderating system that features a
team of staff and community moderators, and moderation tools. If you wish to participate in the
community, we ask that you follow the guidelines below and the spirit of the community they
seek to create.

(I) If your comments consistently or intentionally make this community a less civil and enjoyable place to be, you and your comments will be excluded from it.

The Huffington Post promotes a receptive, transparent and civil atmosphere for comments and
users. Critical, in-depth and intelligent discussions and debates are encouraged and the best of
these are highlighted in various ways, such as through the Community Pundit program.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to voice their opinion regardless of identity, politics,
ideology, religion or agreement with other community members, the author of the post or staff
members as long as those opinions are respectful and constructively add to the conversation.
However, this community does not tolerate direct or indirect attacks, name-calling or insults,
nor does it tolerate intentional attempts to derail, hijack, troll or bait others into an emotional
These types of comments will be removed from the community where warranted.
Individuals who consistently or intentionally post these types of comments will be warned and, if
necessary, excluded from the community.

(II) Many comments are pre-moderated.

To maintain a civil atmosphere, our moderation team may read comments before they are
displayed to other users. If this is the case, you may see your comment pending approval.
Approval times can vary depending on the site-wide comment load, so please be patient -- we
will get to all comments as quickly as possible.

(III) The community monitors itself, in conjunction with the core moderaton team - and you can help!
Every member of this community has the power and responsibility to help elevate the level of
conversation and remove the trolls who would degrade it. On every comment, you can "Fan
and Favorite" (F&F) users who are posting great content, or flag a comment for review by a
moderator. Taking these simple actions helps bring great content to the top and removes bad
content quickly.
Community members who consistently and reliably flag comments that are removed by our
moderators may be given additional tools that will allow them to hide or remove comments
entirely. We take this ability very seriously and if you see any of the "community moderators"
acting inappropriately, please report them to us.
(IV) Be yourself, only yourself, and just one of yourself.

Every person's opinion is valuable and unique. Pretending to be someone else removes that
unique value from you or from others. Don't misrepresent yourself or others, spread mis-
information, create multiple accounts or "astroturf". If you do, you will make the community a
less enjoyable and valuable place to be and will be removed when we see it.

(V) This community is a safe space.

We strongly believe that the Huffington Post should be a safe space for individuals, groups
and their ideas. As such, violent and hostile language or calls for violence and hostility are
not welcome here. If you directly or indirectly threaten the physical or mental well being of a
member of this community, or an individual or group who is the subject of an article, you will
be removed immediately. If a credible threat is made against an individual or group, not only
will it be removed but it is likely that it will be reported to law enforcement agencies and we will
cooperate with them to any extent requested.
Personal identifiable information should never be posted to the Huffington Post comments
section. It never turns out well for anyone.
If you see any threats, harassment or personal information trolling please report it quickly.
(VI) If you have comments, we are here and we have real people who read and reply.

If you have complaints, questions, concerns, or just feedback - positive or critical - please get in touch with us here.

ReedYoung somehow has escaped this ruling:

No, whinger, nobody is "giving some guy heck for even thinking there might be global warming."

I'm giving you heck for lying about the cause of global warming. The cause of global warming is carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases emitted by power plants and internal combustion engines, not nuclear testing.

Like I said... he didn't read the article at all.
 But, he did look at the pictures....
and his lies are only similar to Dr. Bloomfield, only, she used an open suggestion of how many people believe there is man's hand in global warming...
ReedYoung, however, copy pastes whole articles and displays them (as if he had anything to do with them) and he cherry picks numbers:

Not only do 97%-98% of all climate scientists agree with the IPCC, the few who disagree are the least competent.

Well...that DOES sound like a majority, eh?
Of course he was counting on nobody noting the size of the sample:

Here, we use an extensive dataset of 1,372 climate researcher­­s and their publicatio­­n and citation data to show that (i) 97–98% of the climate researcher­­s most actively publishing in the field support the tenets of ACC outlined by the Intergover­­nmental Panel on Climate Change, and (ii) the relative climate expertise and scientific prominence of the researcher­­s unconvince­­d of ACC are substantia­­lly below that of the convinced researcher­­s.

Little realizing that some of my first studies were not of global warming, but rather, study of scientists, engineers, and doctors (one up and coming doctor specifically) and found that there were about 2000 that believed that global warming is a natural trend, it will end, we'll have some chillier weather for a few years and it will start all over again. I then moved in concentric circles around the Continent of South America, looked at political events, studied time lapsed pictures of greenery turned to housing, factories, and business centers.

Later I would discover that China had about 1.5 million scientists, doctors, and engineers graduate in 2006. And their combined voice spoke whatever the policy of China said. And global warming was not at first in their vocabulary. Until they started seeing the effects up close and personal. They are 1.1 billion.
They can probably FEEL global warming.

But these figures don't phase mr. Know-it-all...
so, a meteor shower of insults, again.
And gathering steam because now, this is great fun.
Here's a guy who hypothesized that mankind's events could be read on world thermometers...and they CAN... and now it's OK to insult him to no end.
In essence, create the very environment that Arianna Huffington tried so hard to avoid. But then, she sold the online news group to AOL.
Maybe this is what it has become.

However, the duo problem is, I did get lazy because I'm not being paid to do this. I never did do the maps correctly, just superimposed three together, and compressed the one to where the dates matched.
I still had three other events to combine into the formula, and didn't get around to it because...
I have a life.
But that moron has pissed me off so much, I learned something new.
It can't be stopped.

That's it again if you want.
It can't be stopped.
Scientists crying for money can't stop it, can't even slow it down.
Because there aren't enough scientists.
Well... then again, there's Albert Einstein.

6.60 billion; according to the CIA World Factbook is the population of the earth and siince "Science is a refinement of everyday thinking." (Albert Einstein) everyone is a scientist.

(Reed, YOU go tell the CIA they're wrong. I ain't touching THAT job with a ten foot pole!)

But, in this case, that is 100% correct.
PEOPLE have to do the work that needs to be done. Scientists just want to study the shit out of it, but for what reason, I don't know. They'll be leaving their data for a planet of plants and reptiles and bugs. Long live evolution and long live reincarnation!
But scientists?
What an odd crew.
I KNOW scientists. They are great folk.
But they are human, and that creates a problem.
Let's look, shall we?

Although atmospheric scientists had studied the problem for decades, global warming first emerged as a public issue in 1988 when James Hansen, a NASAscientist, told Congress that his research, and the work of a handful of other scientists, indicated that human beings were dangerously heating the planet, particularly through the use of fossil fuels. …
From roughly 1988 to 1995, the hypothesis that burning coal and gas and oil in large quantities was releasing carbon dioxide and other gases that would trap the sun’s radiation on earth and disastrously heat the planet remained just that: a hypothesis. Scientists used every means at their disposal to reconstruct the history of the earth’s climate and to track current changes. For example, they studied the concentration of greenhouse gases in ancient air trapped in glacial cores, sampled the atmosphere with weather balloons, examined the relative thickness of tree rings, and observed the frequency of volcanic eruptions. Most of all, they refined the supercomputer models of the earth’s atmosphere in an effort to predict the future of the world’s weather.

infighting became commonplace. Disrespect of other specialists became the norm and civility took a back seat to the politics of getting money.
Money for satellites, money for some incredibly expensive tools, money for durable, money for traveling to some remote places on Earth, and money to travel to exotic locations, remote transmitting thermometers (what? they don't have enough YET? They've already worked out the math in the late 19th century, but,  we need those thermometers!) money for paying back student loans because we have turned our universities into capitalist ventures instead of institutions of learning.

 CancĂșn Agreements, gives the more than 190 countries participating in the conference another year to decide whether to extend the frayed Kyoto Protocol, the 1997 agreement that requires most wealthy nations to trim their emissions while providing assistance to developing countries to pursue a cleaner energy future.

At the heart of the international debate is a momentous tussle between rich and poor countries over who steps up first and who pays most for changed energy menus.
In the United States, on Jan. 2, 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency imposed its first regulations related to greenhouse gas emissions. The immediate effect on utilities, refiners and major manufacturers will be small, with the new rules applying only to those planning to build large new facilities or make major modifications to existing plants.  Over the next decade, however, the agency plans to regulate virtually all sources of greenhouse gases, imposing efficiency and emissions requirements on nearly every industry and every region.

The coming to America was a failure from the Bush junior camp, of course.
"It'll work itself out" is the usual GOP stance. The problem with that concept is, it may work itself out via no people.
But then...maybe the whole thing is political?
Is there any proof of our hand in global warming?
Let me ask that a different way...
Is there any PROOF in the THEORY of man's hand in global warming.
And I'm sure as rain on a Summer's eve that Ascheron is smiling now, because that is the very question he posed at me and, I thought I had something.
Still do.
But...the better question is, now,
Is it too late?

"What good is doing it, then?" I'm asked.

Because I have a daughter, and a niece, and grand nephew and a grand niece, and I want them to have a safe planet to live on...

Because my girlfriend gave me a note from the deep past that is true...

We did not inherit this land from our ancestors.
We are borrowing it from future generations.

So, the closing will be temporary...I'll leave the Baskakov up for viewing because I like the concept of people laughing, and...
the zefrank link is a great exercise in growing up, so I'll leave both up in case ReedYoung drifts by to look at more pictures.
