According to a DWSD document, more than 80,000 residential households – in a city of 680,000 people – are in arrears, with thousands of families without water, and thousands more expected to lose access at any moment.
And who has run Detroit for the last 40 years to let it get this bad. And why were people allowed for all those years NOT to pay the utility bills.

Then how is it liberal to call skeptics of climate change mitigation, "deniers"? You only WISH you were liberal.

Move to Titan.. asap.

Saturn's largest moon shares much in common with Earth, such as a substantial atmosphere and a seasonal cycle. Wind and rain shape the surface to form river channels, seas, dunes and shorelines.

Titan's mountains and dune fields are made of ice, rather than rock or sand, and liquid hydrocarbons take up many of the roles played by water on Earth.

Indeed, the seas and lakes that pepper the moon's north polar region are filled not with water, but with methane and ethane. These exist in a gaseous state on Earth, but at typical Titan temperatures of -180C, they are liquids.

When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data. There was already much evidence of this seven years ago, when I was writing my history of the scare, The Real Global Warming Disaster. But now another damning example has been uncovered by Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science, showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records, the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Goddard shows how, in recent years, NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been “adjusting” its record by replacing real temperatures with data “fabricated” by computer models. The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data. In several posts headed “Data tampering at USHCN/GISS”, Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time. These show that the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph, nearly half of it based on “fabricated” data, shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than 3 degrees centigrade per century.

When I first began examining the global-warming scare, I found nothing more puzzling than the way officially approved scientists kept on being shown to have finagled their data, as in that ludicrous “hockey stick” graph, pretending to prove that the world had suddenly become much hotter than at any time in 1,000 years. Any theory needing to rely so consistently on fudging the evidence, I concluded, must be looked on not as science at all, but as simply a rather alarming case study in the aberrations of group psychology.

History has shown the ignorant that man is capable of destroying his environment no matter how big it is. Man can pollute river systems, strip land bare of all living things, over fish the oceans, bring species to extinction. Yet somehow man is given a free pass on the Air, how do you figure that Einstein ? Just what makes the atmosphere invulnerable to man's presence.
Why are they all wearing breathing masks in some of those cities in China buried in Smog, what if the US ignored science on exhaust emissions on cars. They would be wearing those same masks in LA & NY by now.
That's your big dilemma instead of posting BS day after day. Show us how science got this one so wrong. Besides knowing that you are drowning in facts that you ignore daily.

Cu'n paste spam.

Christopher Booker and Steve Goddard are idiots, high priests of the cult of stupid.
