Sixty scientists call
on Harper to revisit
the science of global warming
April 15, 2006
An open letter to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper:
Dear Prime Minister:
As accredited experts in climate and related scientific disciplines, we are writing to propose that balanced, comprehensive public-consultation sessions be held so as to examine the scientific foundation of the federal government's climate-change plans. This would be entirely consistent with your recent commitment to conduct a review of the Kyoto Protocol. Although many of us made the same suggestion to then-prime ministers Martin and Chrétien, neither responded, and, to date, no formal, independent climate-science review has been conducted in Canada. Much of the billions of dollars earmarked for implementation of the protocol in Canada will be squandered, without a proper assessment of recent developments in climate science.
Observational evidence does not support today's computer climate models, so there is little reason to trust model predictions of the future. Yet, this is precisely what the United Nations did in creating and promoting Kyoto, and still does in the alarmist forecasts on which Canada's climate policies are based. Even if the climate models were realistic, the environmental impact of Canada delaying implementation of Kyoto or other greenhouse-gas reduction schemes, pending completion of consultations, would be insignificant. Directing your government to convene balanced, open hearings as soon as possible would be a most prudent and responsible course of action.
While the confident pronouncements of scientifically unqualified environmental groups may provide for sensational headlines, they are no basis for mature policy formulation. The study of global climate change is, as you have said, an "emerging science," one that is perhaps the most complex ever tackled. It may be many years yet before we properly understand the Earth's climate system. Nevertheless, significant advances have been made since the Protocol was created, many of which are taking us away from a concern about increasing greenhouse gases. If, back in the mid-1990s, we knew what we know today about climate, Kyoto would almost certainly not exist, because we would have concluded it was not necessary.
We appreciate the difficulty any government has ,formulating sensible science-based policy, when the loudest voices always seem to be pushing in the opposite direction. However, by convening open, unbiased consultations, Canadians will be permitted to hear from experts on both sides of the debate in the climate-science community. When the public comes to understand that there is no "consensus" among climate scientists about the relative importance of the various causes of global climate change, the government will be in a far better position to develop plans that reflect reality, and so benefit both the environment and the economy..

Of the 60, only 20 are Canadian. Other 40 originate from many countries. Strange, of the 1000s of scientists in Canada, they could only find 10. Of the millions of scientists worldwide, they could only find 40 to sign this letter, a "DOH" letter as Prime Minister Harper is pro-industry, pro-oil, pro-pollution and has not ONE plan to clean up the environment. What a bunch of clueless nitwits. Do you think, Rogue, if I checked the CVs, of all these so-called scientists, I may find a tie or two to oil companies here and there?

Yep, the bishop's dad was an Army helicopter pilot who flew two tours in Sunny South Vietnam.

Msgr. Edward J. Weisenburger appointed 11th bishop of Salina Diocese

Salina — Monday morning brought news for which parishioners in the Diocese of Salina had been waiting more than a year: They had a new bishop.

Pope Benedict XVI appointed Msgr. Edward Weisenburger, vicar general of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, to be the 11th bishop of Salina.

He is the first bishop in the 125-year history of the diocese to have lived previously in the diocese, and his Kansas connection was one of the first things he shared during a Monday afternoon press conference at the Chancery.

“Even though this is a new and surprising turn in my life, it’ also very much a homecoming. So I feel very blessed to be called to come here,” he said.

Another Kansas connection: His archbishop for the past year was his predecessor here. Oklahoma City Archbishop Paul Coakley was appointed to head the archdiocese in December 2010 after serving six years as bishop of Salina.

“I am very happy that the Holy Father has chosen such a fine priest to serve as bishop of Salina,” Archbishop Coakley said Monday afternoon.“Msgr. Weisenburger has been an outstanding priest, a very capable administrator and, most of all, a good pastor.

“Salina is getting one of our very best,” he continued.“I will miss him greatly but am consoled that the Diocese of Salina, which holds a very special place in my heart, will be very well-served.”

Bishop-elect Weisenburger, 51, lived in Hays when he was 4 years old and again when he was 7. His mother, the former Asella “Sally” Walters, was born and raised in nearby Catharine, and his parents met in Hays.

When his father, Edward, an Army helicopter pilot, twice was sent to the Vietnam War,“he relocated his wife and family to Hays where he knew his family would be safe and secure,” he explained.

Protocols is a verb?
=========
Protocol could be a verb and noun.
Protocol usage is just like usage of the word better.
Better could be a verb or adjective.
Examples as adjective are: you are better if you have a good sensory organ, or you are better (off) if you know logic.
Examples for verb are: you can better yourself if you could improve your writings, or you want a good job in order to better your future.
Here is the example of verb and adjective together:
You need to better yourself for advancement, by speaking of things that make sense in order that you can be better (off) in the future, to live a better life.
The nutjob tries to illustrate the noun 'protocols' as a verb with the example of better. He had better learn to use a dictionary.

There are many examples of words used as verb and noun, in speaking sometimes (may not be in the dictionary):

Mary leads a hectic life and says she is on the go--as NOUN (that means she is busy and she has to get going.)

Mary clads (as VERB) in silky skirts all the time.

Mary usually has silky clad (dresses)--as NOUN.

Mary skits (as verb) her friend sometimes. Mary also makes a lot of skits (as noun) to her neighbors.

YOU THE rigid UNINTELLIGENT (HERE, UNINTELLIGENT IS A NOUN AND NOT AN ADJECTIVE TOO), STOP THE GAMBIT OF BEING SO UPTIGHT.

This is not typical (not typical--not often as usual way) for the word better: He had better learn to use a dictionary.

Certainly the word "Better" is commonly used as adjective, verb, and noun too.

Between the two women, who do you think you like, Mary or Susan?

They say Mary is the better (as noun).

Generally words usage is based on the dictionary, AS IS IN SOME CASES, words CAN BE used not exactly linked to dictionary

"Clad" is neither a verb nor a noun, Shakespeare. It's an adjective. "Cladding" is a noun.

But in Rouge's fantasy world it only became a problem when a semi-black man with a funny name became POTUS. Obviously Rouge must have been right since we have now seen the elimination of all freedoms across the country at the hand of a single school administrator

WHAT do YOU KNOW ABOUT Shakespeare? Most people have not read his literature and won't write like him these days.

HERE, IT IS MOSTLY referring to speaking today.

In general, among people talking to each other, that was what it was said.

In some cases, people can put that in writing too, or as poetry (the dictionary may not illustrate all in full).

What do you think you are, as if people would have to write like
Shakespeare? Shakespeare things tend to be long opera shows, poetry things recitals anyway, as not quite applicable for scientific and technological subjects, as well as people-to-people communication verbiage nowadays.
That is not suitable for today's society, including in formal and business writings.

Oh yeah? I read about it in my morning newspapers, dispatches from Media News, AP, AFP, etc. On TV, watched it on CBC, NBC, glimpsed it on Foxnews.com and CNN.

These demonstrations are AGAISNT the elected but chiefly Sharia-oriented Moslem constitution and laws that Morsi wants. People are secular in Egypt and want him OUT. What is unexplainable is Morsi won the popular vote last election, a vote that was fairly honest according to foreign and UN representatives. Go figure.

Should the military take over like they did against Mubarak, I hope they won't be as dumb as they were then. But, hey, what can one expect of military brass? Ever heard of a military junta that worked in world history? Name one.

Ah, being pro-industry and oil does not equal pro-pollution. What happened to all the pollution volcanoes do every year which far exceeds what mankind does, who cleans that up? How about mother nature! Who cleaned up the BP Gulf oil spill? MOTHER NATURE!
But to idiotards like you, you think carbon dioxide is a pollutant when in fact it is .... plant food! The levels of CO2, presently and estimated in the future are beneficial to plants and animals.
You do not that man-made CO2 makes up less than 1% of all greenhouse gases, don't you?
And even though C)2 levels continue to creep upwards, the Earth has cooled about a half agree centigrade since 2007 and is expected to drop another half to a whole degree by 2020! Oyr Sun is at it's lowest level in a century and they expect it to go down to it's lowest level in 200 years by 2020.
