A ROK gave me a funny look but did not say anything. He probably told his chingoes that we Americans had no bathroom manners!

Does the ignorant twit comprehend that anthropogenic contribution to global warming has been significant? That's the part we can do something about. And what's this nonsense suggesting computer models cannot account for effects of water vapor?

Even so, David Hathaway, a solar physicist at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, says it’s the actual strength of such magnetic field at the end of a given maximum 11-year sunspot cycle that are thought to act as bellwethers for the size and strength of the next solar maximum.
“At the end of a sunspot cycle about all you have left are magnetic fields at the solar poles,” said Hathaway.“We’re at the sunspot maximum of Cycle 24. It’s the smallest sunspot cycle in 100 years and the third in a trend of diminishing sunspot cycles. So, Cycle 25 could likely be smaller than Cycle 24.”
Another indicator pointing to an imminent grand minimum is that the current solar cycle shows some signs of hemispheric asymmetry, says Steve Tobias, an applied mathematician at the University of Leeds in the U.K.
“When the field is about to enter a minimum or is leaving a minimum,” said Tobias,“we see more sunspots in one solar hemisphere than the other.”
Yet during the 1645 — 1715 Maunder Minimum itself, sunspots basically disappeared and as documented in paintings from the era, Northern Europe suffered unusually cold winter temperatures.
Such minima are thought to be a part of the normal life of a sunlike star, however. And from recent surveys of several solar analogues in the open stellar cluster M67, Giampapa and colleagues see indications that such grand minima take place up to 15 percent of the time.
Hathaway says that the observed effects of the sunspot cycle in radioisotopes; in ice cores; and in tree rings indicate that some 10 to 15 percent of the time the sun is in “something like a Maunder Minimum.”
“If we’re entering a Maunder Minimum, it could persist until the 2080s,” said Giampapa, who points out that if such a minimum’s primary effect is cooling, it could wreak havoc by curtailing agricultural growing seasons which, for instance, could lead to lower wheat production in breadbasket economies.
But Giampapa says it could also mean a global excursion from the mean, resulting in local climate extremes in terms of both anomalous temperatures and precipitation.
Could a Maunder Minimum mitigate a warming climate?
Not likely, says Hathaway.
Although the rise of global temperatures seen in “the last decade or so seems to have currently leveled off,” says Hathaway, he notes that even a Maunder Minimum would still not be enough to counter the warming effects of anthropogenic climate change.
If anything, a Maunder Minimum may simply make existing weather and short term climate even more unusual and difficult to predict.

RealStoryThe real story of Captain Phillips and Captain Zero.
Apparently the President “managed” the details of the rescue of Captain Phillips. In doing so he earned the hostility of the Seals entrusted with the mission. Here’s an account by a career Naval officer who had a distinguished career, Herb Schwartz, in which he refers to the President as “Zero”.(Which gives you an indication that he feels the President was more of an obstructionist than what the WH would later characterize as “daring and decisive”, once success had been achieved.

If you see the movie, keep these things in mind !

Herb Schwartz is a Navy Blue and Gold Officer for the Naval Academy
and father of the highest ranked graduate at the USNA in 2000.
He flew missions over the former Soviet Union with Francis Gary
Powers, taught at the Judge Advocates college and briefed President
Kennedy as an intelligence officer.

From: Herb Schwartz, Subject:

The real story of Captain Phillips written shortly after the event by
someone who was there.

All of us want to raise our glass this week to the Navycap4
SEALs who popped those three Somali pirates. And I’m sure you want to
hear the real story of what happened. Especially because there is a
revoltingly opportunistic and cowardly side to it. Guess which side
Zero (aka: our president) is on.

Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special
Warfare Development Group, the Navy’s equivalent of Delta Force) over
36 hours to get to the scene?

Because Zero refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36
hours, during which the OSC – the on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank
Castellano of the USS Bainbridge – repeatedly r equested them.

Once the SEALs arrived – parachuting from a C-17 into the ocean near
the ship – Zero then imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) specifying the
SEALs could not do anything unless the life of the hostage, Captain
Richard Phillips, was in “imminent” danger.

cap5Thus, when Capt. Phillips attempted to escape by jumping off the
lifeboat into the ocean, the SEAL snipers had all four pirates (one
later surrendered) sighted in and could have taken them out then and
there – but they could not fire due to Zero’s ROE restrictions.

When the SEALs approached the lifeboat in a RIB (rigid-hull inflatable
boat) carrying supplies for Capt. Phillips and the pirates, the
pirates fired upon them. Not only was no fire returned due to the ROE,
but as the pirates were shooting at the RIB, SEAL snipers on the
Bainbridge had them all dialed in. No triggers were pulled due to the
ROE.

Two specific rescue plans were developed by Cmdr. Castellano and the
SEAL teams. Zero personally refused to authorize them.

After the second refusal and days of dithering, Cmdr. Castellano
decided he had the Operational Area and OSC authority to “solely
determine risk to hostage” and did not require any further approval of
the president.

Four hours later, the White House is informed that three pirates arespikes
dead and Capt. Phillips has been rescued unharmed. A WH press release
is immediately issued , giving credit to the president for his “daring
and decisive” behavior that resulted in such success.

Zero has absolutely no military knowledge or experience whatsoever.
He demanded decisional control over the entire hostage drama to the
last detail. All actions required his personal approval. He dithered
like a coward while the world laughed at our warships flummoxed by
four illiterate teenagers with AKs in a lifeboat.

Only when the Navy Commander decided to ignore his Pantywaist-in Chief
and take action and responsibility himself, were the incredible skills
of the SEALs put into play.

FrankcThat Zero could cynically and opportunistically claim that his “bold”
“calm”“tough” leadership was responsible should remind everyone that
not a single action, not a single word of this man can be trusted. He
is bereft of honesty and moral character. That’s why he’s Zero.

We raise a glass full of pride and gratitude to Navy Commander Frank
Castellano, the Navy SEALs for their incredible competence, and our
military as we also recognize Zero for what he is, or more
appropriately, for what he is not.

What're you talking about? Most everyone knows more about you on ANY subject.

Expert talk on climate does not include mostly unattributed cut-and-paste drivel by generously-paid oil magnate surrogates. Also, being a pilot, even a good one makes you as much of a climate expert as it makes me as much of a mechanic because I drive a car.

Jacques,
Gaseous carbon dioxide is but one very small piece of the Earth's complex atmospheric jigsaw puzzle.
Internal combustion engine byproducts such as exhaust soot, oxides of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, pariculate matter, smog and haze are some others.

Did you know that the take-off of just one 747 Jumbo Jet is equivalent to setting you local gas station alight and flying it overhead?

And another Democrat Congressman announces his retirement. Rep. John Dingel will not run for reelection this year. It is not that he is old, but he knows not only will the Democrats regain control of the House, they will most likely lose additional seat.
Even if his seat is safe, they do not want to serve in a minority-minority Congress as the Republicans will probably regain control of the Senate too.
2014 is going to be a bad year for the Democrats and Obama is already a lame duck!

Were you cleaning your loaded gun again? Did it go off and hit you in the crotch, thereby causing serious brain injury? Must be, as you wrote : "Apparently the President “managed” the details of the rescue of Captain Phillips. In doing so he earned the hostility of the Seals entrusted with the mission."

Well, how'd the mission go? How'd it end? Disastrously? Nope. So successfully it went, they made a movie of it. So, assuming Obama did have a hand in managing the details of the rescue, it was a 'happy hand", don't you agree?

Now, you went on and on about unhappy Seals following the Osama bin Laden successful killing. Sour grapes. Obama AUTHORISED the mission, staked his entire reputation and career on it. Now, he supposedly 'managed" the Captain Philips" thing? Sure. You are so bloody anxious to discredit Obama that you actually CREDIT him for a successful outcome, not even realising it. Not the first time either. You did it today with the climate change affair, thank you wojar.

Obama decides on policy, Rogue, he lets his lieutenants, in each case, the military and the Seals, do their jobs. He approves, that's it, but that makes him responsible, good or bad. He's the the leader. You don't like it? Too bad.

Tell us, what is it really that you hate so much about our president? Not approving of him is one thing, but this hate thing is sick.
