The media refers to those kids as immigrants when they are really refugees.

These kids are being treated worse than lost puppies imo.

Of course NOT!!! In 2002 AGW scientists predicted that Antarctic sea ice would increase, due to warmer southern oceans causing more water vapor in the air. The extra water vapor would be carried near & onto Antarctica, causing more precipitation on the normally arid continent. AGW scientists re-confirmed their predictions in 2005....... & sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars continually show the proof of the prediction, being johnny-come-latelies, who think they post anti-AGW data.

The constant erroneous, sleepy posts, show that sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars have no science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in poorly(or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif.(AP)— A rocket carrying a NASA satellite lit up the pre-dawn skies Wednesday on a mission to track the chief culprit behind global warming.

The Delta 2 rocket blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base along the central California coast and sped toward low-Earth orbit. It separated from the global warming satellite about an hour after liftoff.

The launch was canceled on Tuesday morning because of an equipment failure.

NASA tried in 2009 to launch a satellite dedicated to studying carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas caused by the burning of fossil fuels. A satellite plunged into the ocean off Antarctica after a hardware failure with the Taurus XL rocket.

After the loss, NASA spent several years and millions of dollars building a near-identical twin.

Like the original, the satellite known as Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, or OCO-2 for short, will sniff for carbon dioxide from 438 miles above the Earth's surface.

About 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide are released yearly from factories and cars. About half of the greenhouse gas is trapped in the atmosphere, while the rest is sucked up by trees and oceans.

The goal of the $468 million mission, designed to last at least two years, is to study the processes behind how the environment absorbs carbon dioxide.

NASA spent more money on the new mission, mainly because it's using a more expensive rocket. Engineers also had to replace obsolete satellite parts, which drove up the price tag.

I used to post here 90 million tons of man-made CO2 release daily.. check the new number per NASA:

about 110 million tons every day.

Clearly you don't have science or mathematics to speak of thermodynamics or physics or the scientific method.
You can't even follow news. That NASA launch was scrubbed on Tuesday. The mission is to measure atmospheric columns for CO2 content... after the satellite gets launched, flies, and gets calibrated, etc
Oh also you have no concept of a thesis research..
Ya know, just because you say something (see quote) does NOT make it true. I know you've been taught to believe that.
For instance: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php...
NASA DID launch. Thus, you lied...again.
I know because I watched. Which leads to your next lie: "Clearly you don't have science or mathematics to speak of thermodynamics or physics or the scientific method." How else could I have witnessed this unless, wait for it, I might have some knowledge that requires scientific method...a lot! And I get paid for it! LOL

Maybe if their parents weren't cruel morons to abandon them like unwanted puppies they wouldn't be in such a bad way.

It will take a long time to calibrate the measurements, etc.. at least several weeks.. You have no idea, of course.

By one count, more than 100 US municipalities have passed bans or moratoriums on fracking that are similar to the ones upheld in Middlefield and Dryden, N.Y.

No one has disproved the theory of agw.
You can't disprove what hasn't been proven yet. The only thing that has been proven is Al Gore could make 200 million scamming the American people.....well low information voters.

Name caller.. do your own research.

Fracking encomposses so many issues from earthquakes to drinking water. Scientific evidence about what, silly goose?

When your well is polluted, for an example, you can't drink it. That's evidence that fracking is bad for you. What science can tell you to drink polluted water and get sick or die!

Dude, YOU posted this ONLY 3 hours ago:

"You can't even follow news. That NASA launch was scrubbed on Tuesday. The mission is to measure atmospheric columns for CO2 content... after the satellite gets launched, flies, and gets calibrated, etc"

What a misleading and lying rube.

You do realize you only provide homur and no substance, right?
