Sorry, the latest data shows that the earth has been absorbing more heat than it loses even while the sun's irradiance has diminished. Indeed global warming has accelerated in the past 15 years. However, because much of the recent warming has occurred below ocean depths of 700 m junk science climate deniers make believe it isn't happening.

Global warming happens. And apparently is happening.

What percentage of influence that man has on this is the only thing really being debated in science.

Solutions to this are available. Consider it our trial by fire introduction to terraforming. I find it really exciting.

There are a few camps out there that argue over what the effects will be if our recent trend continues, so we are kind of too far away to even know what we should be doing about it. But this is certainly not the first time this has happened. Our ancestors survived an ice age somehow.

Global warming will not kill off mankind. But it is something to play with while we understand more about our home. Overcoming climate change will be an essential part of our long term survival.

The INS counts every human who arrives regardless of whether they are adults, children or infants. A newborn baby would be required either to have a US visa on a foreign passport, and hence would be counted as foreign. Or she or he would have to have a US passport or be entered on the US passport of either the mother (which is usual) or the father, and hence that child would be counted as a US citizen.
A total of 21 people arrived in the USA from Kenya in 1961 and all but one of them came by sea, by ship. That means that unless Obama's mother traveled alone and had baby Obama sent by ship, or baby Obama traveled alone (which is damn unlikely), she and he would have had to have been among the 20 people who arrived by ship------and there were no direct scheduled ships from Kenya to Hawaii in those days. That, plus the birth certificate from Hawaii saying that he was born there, plus the Index Data, plus the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers (which could have been sent to the papers ONLY by the DOH of Hawaii, which in 1961 sent those notices only for births in Hawaii) makes it virtually impossible for Obama to have been born in Kenya.(And, BTW, the Kenyan government said that it investigated and that Obama certainly was NOT born in Kenya.)

Oil sands death of hundreds of ducks in 2010 blamed on weather, no charges laid

Canadian Press | 04/10/12 | Last Updated: 04/10/12 6:17 PM ET
More from Canadian Press

EDMONTON — The Alberta government says there won’t be any charges against two oil sands companies that own tailings ponds in northern Alberta where hundreds of ducks died two years ago.

The Environment Department released a report by a University of Alberta biologist Thursday that said nothing could have been done when an early winter storm in October 2010 forced the birds to land on the toxic waste ponds belonging to Syncrude and Suncor near Fort McMurray. Others landed on nearby roads and parking lots.

More than 550 birds, many of them covered in oily goo, had to be destroyed.

Scott Stinson: Ducks fly at their own risk

.
The bird deaths came just days after Syncrude agreed to pay $3-million in penalties after 1,600 ducks died on one of its tailings ponds during a storm two years earlier. Pictures of dead and dying birds flashed around the world and Syncrude was cast by its critics as an environmental pariah.

A report by biologist Colleen Cassady St. Clair from the University of Alberta said strong winds, freezing rain and poor visibility forced the birds to land abruptly.

“The weather during, and especially preceding, the landings included a major storm event with high wind speeds and changing wind directions, exactly the conditions that hinder migration,” she said in her report.

The Crown found that the report’s conclusion as well as evidence gathered by provincial investigators left no reasonable chance of conviction, the government said.

Most of the birds that landed on the ponds died because they became covered in bitumen, while the ones who hit the ground probably died from blunt trauma, St. Clair said.

“Newspaper and eyewitness reports described birds as ’falling from the sky’ onto parking lots and highways,” she wrote.“It is conceivable that birds targeted pavement as landing sites because the dark night, low cloud cover and recent precipitation would have caused those surfaces to reflect what little light was available, much as water does.”

Black Man Goes on Shooting Spree Targeting Only White People
Posted By Philip Hodges on Sep 28, 2013

Here’s another story that won’t make national headlines anywhere. And it probably won’t be investigated as a “hate crime,” even though race had everything do with the attack. Lakim Faust is a black man who went on a shooting spree, armed with 100 rounds of ammo. He only went after the white folk according to a local CBS affiliate:
“A man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June picked out his victims because they were white, according to several indictments handed down against him. Lakim Faust had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people who were standing outside at a law firm and a shopping center in June, authorities said. A grand jury indicted Faust on 14 charges Monday, including four counts of attempted first-degree murder. Faust, who is black, picked out his victims based on their race, according to the indictments. The documents didn’t specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets. Earlier reports had indicated that Faust was shooting ‘indiscriminately.’”
Apparently, no one was killed. I guess Faust wasn’t that good of a shot. Of course, police shot Faust and didn’t kill him. He spent some time in the hospital, but now he’s out and in jail.
If only Faust had been a white guy who wanted to kill only black people. Even if he ended up not killing anyone, the media would have gone crazy. They’d start talking about how white-on-black “hate crimes” are on the rise. They’d say that ordinarily they’re opposed to the death penalty but in this case, they’d make an exception. They’d start making all sorts of “connections” about Faust’s political affiliations. They’d claim that Faust was a right-wing extremist with ties to the Tea Party. They’d say he voted for Ron Paul and donated to Rand Paul’s senate campaign. They’d “unearth” some comments that he supposedly made on some racist website. They’d interview members of his family and everyone who claimed to be an old friend of his. His family and “friends” would all say that he had been reclusive for the past several years and that they always knew that he was “up to something.” A few of the ones interviewed would express regret for not reporting his behavior to the police who could have given him a psych evaluation and had him committed, which would have prevented his hate crime shooting spree.
Then they’d cut for commercial which would be an ad from DHS reminding everyone,“If you see something, say something,” followed by a Prozac commercial. And then a Zoloft commercial. And then a Paxil commercial.
But…he was black, and he wanted to kill only white people. So, none of that matters. It’s just a local story. And remember, white people owned black slaves a long time ago, so those white folk sort of had it coming, if you know what I mean. Move along, people. Nothing to see here.

“We know this because we were there: In 1988-90, we were employed at Heritage as a public relations associate (a junior writer and editor), and we wrote at least one press release for a publication touting Heritage’s plan for comprehensive legislation to provide universal 'quality, affordable health care.'”

And Stuart Butler himself referred to "the Heritage Plan" several times.

Now who's plan do you think "Heritage's plan" was?

Even if MA were a socialist state (which it isn't), NOBODY was calling the Heritage plan, "socialist." Duh!

Thank you. Now what about the thousands of bird that are getting chopped up in wind turbines?

Study: Feds underestimated how many birds get killed by wind turbines
“I estimated 888,000 bat and 573,000 bird fatalities/year (including 83,000 raptor fatalities) at 51,630 megawatt (MW) of installed wind-energy capacity in the United States in 2012,” writes K. Shawn Smallwood, author of the study that was published in the Wildlife Society Bulletin.
