I doubt that they have learned from my mistakes. But I have. Those who do not make mistakes do not learn because they do nothing. But that is a mistake in itself. So you are mistaken my friend.

This is just too freaking funny:

"Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

"That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

'“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer.“He has no credibility."

'“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”'

I've considered that you could be right and I've concluded that's impossible.

You dumb ass.
Of course you have concluded that. After all, to conclude that I might be right would mean that you would have to face the fact that you are wrong and I know you cannot do that.

I've known about the natural fission [pay attention] reactors in Africa. Even read the DOE reports about them.
As to tina, she'll call them reactions. You're seriously misled about her... even if you are related to her.
You know about natural fission reactors in Africa and yet do not know about a natural fusion reaction that happens every day in the sky above you. Now pay attention yourself, the sun is a fusion not a fission reaction. Nuclear fusion happens every day in the sun, all day long.

Also, if you want to say I am wrong then please tell everyone what is happening if it is not nuclear fusion. Sorry, but claiming someone is wrong is not enough, you have to provide the right answer along with it.

You need to review the past posts. You are the one who called the sun a reaction, dummy.

You are losing your little mind.

No it’s a mistake to say it was the hottest year ever. What about the hotter years that were never recorded? You’re getting to deep the spacedoutblues will get more confused.

So what? Don't get your girly panties in a wad about it.

Instead, why don't you educate yourself about it instead of hyperventilating and pushing the panic button. It's called a CYCLE.

Weather patterns/cycles have been going on before you were here. And will continue long after. You are shortsighted and gullible.

It has gotten hot everywhere around the world at one point or another!
Years ago it was 105* in Michigan and over 100* for a week. It's called A HOT SPELL.

'Ancient pollen and charcoal preserved in deeply buried sediments in Egypt's Nile Delta document the region's ancient droughts and fires, including a huge drought 4,200 years ago associated with the demise of Egypt's Old Kingdom.

Death on the Nile: Researchers believe climate change brought 'mega drought' that ended an Egyptian kingdom 4,200 years ago

Researchers analysed pollen and charcoal levels in the Nile and found evidence of massive fires and few crops; Mega-drought led to famine and demise of the Egyptians.
was the abrupt and global mega-drought around 4,200 years ago, which led to famines and probably played a role in the end of Egypt’s Old Kingdom and affected other Mediterranean cultures.

These events are also recorded in history - the first about 5,000 years ago when the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt happened and the Uruk Kingdom in modern Iraq collapsed, the Geology study says.

The second event 3,000 years ago took place in the eastern Mediterranean and is associated with the fall of the Ugarit Kingdom and famines in the Babylonian and Syrian Kingdoms.

"Humans have a long history of having to deal with climate change," said Christopher Bernhardt, a researcher with the U.S. Geological Survey. "Along with other research, this study geologically reveals that the evolution of societies is sometimes tied to climate variability at all scales – whether decadal or millennial."
*****

In plain words for the devout mmcc/cc fanatics....There was MAJOR climate change from lush grassland and abundant water supply and moderate temps in Egypt to HOT DRY DUSTY climate which created major drought thru out the area and caused the Old Kingdom to falter.
*******

Must have been too much oil & fossil fuel burning by the Egyptians back then. Shame they had to stop using their cars and their combustion engines and stop all factory production, isn't it?

If only they had High Priest AL back then to lead them on the right path. Sigh.
