For you loony left wingers. in any century, there will be a good number of years that are hotter (and cooler) than the average for that century. That's how you get a freaking average!
Now consider that they are claiming only a handful (maybe twenty+) are hotter than average, what does that say for the other 70+
When the nine of top ten hottest years are all within the past 10 years, its called a trend.

However, I am not surprised that you can not distinguish the difference between that & having the hottest years evenly distributed among the past 100 years.

This because you are indeed dumber than sh*t.

9 of the hottest years have been within the last ten years. Not much of a cooling trend.

"On Aug. 6, 2001, President George W. Bush received a classified review of the threats posed by Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, Al Qaeda. That morning’s “presidential daily brief”— the top-secret document prepared by America’s intelligence agencies — featured the now-infamous heading:“Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” A few weeks later, on 9/11, Al Qaeda accomplished that goal."
You don't honestly think our government can do anything in a few weeks, do you?
Clinton formed a bipartisan commission to study our vulnerability to a terrorist attack. The committee was to meet & report to the new President.

They went to see Bush in early 2001. Bush refused to see them & basically threw the report in the trash.

Instead he formed his own committee headed by dick Cheney & his campaign manager. Their first meeting was scheduled for late September 2001.

That would have given Bush at least 6 months. All it would have taken is more attention paid to those in pilot training or a little better screening on inbound air passengers.

Timeline of UN resolutions regarding Saddam's WMDs beginning in 1991 with Resolution 687 after gassing the Kurds in 1988 up until Resolution 1441 in 2002 that said "Iraq remains in material breach of its obligations" under various U.N. resolutions and giving the country "a final opportunity to comply with its disarmament" commitments.
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php...
Anyone who was surprised and outraged because of the Iraq War and not finding WMDs after Saddam was given eleven years to deceive the U.N. and the entire world and after obstructing inspectors access to facilities and scientists until he had time to get rid of them were either just plain stupid or desperate deniers.
Selective reading again Carol? You seem to have missed these gems;
No 'Smoking Guns'::: Jan. 9, 2003
UNMOVIC's Hans Blix and the IAEA's Director General Mohamed ElBaradei report their findings to the U.N. Security Council. Blix says inspectors have not found any "smoking guns" in Iraq. ElBaradei reports that aluminum tubes suspected by the U.S. to be components for uranium enrichment are more likely to be parts for rockets, as the Iraqis claim.
Sixteen Words ::: Jan. 28, 2003
In his State of the Union address, President Bush continues to view Iraq is a WMD threat. He makes a statement that implies Iraq is trying to develop nuclear weapons. Bush says:
"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."
It comes to light later that the president based his statement on discredited intelligence.
Kay Resigns ::: Jan. 23, 2004
David Kay resigns as head of the ISG. CIA Director George Tenet names Charles Duelfer to replace Kay, whose team failed to find evidence of active WMD production or stockpiles. Kay tells NPR:
"My summary view, based on what I've seen, is that we are very unlikely to find large stockpiles of weapons. I don't think they exist."
Hutton Inquiry ::: Feb. 4, 2004
The Hutton Inquiry into allegations from the BBC that the British government had hyped WMD intelligence reports before the war with Iraq finds no basis for the allegations.
Senate Intelligence Report ::: July 9, 2004
The Report of the Select Committee on Intelligence on the U.S. Intelligence Community's Prewar Intelligence Assessments on Iraq is released. It faults America's ability to gauge Iraq's capabilities before the war. Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) says:
"Before the war, the U.S. intelligence community told the president, as well as the Congress, that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and if left unchecked, would probably have a nuclear weapon during this decade. Well, today we know these assessments were wrong. They were also unreasonable and largely unsupported by the available intelligence."
Lastly if he got rid of his WMD like you claim then why did over 4000 of our military need to die and tens of thousands more return home maimed?
You're the one who's in denial that we spent blood and treasure in a feckless adventure that destabilized the region and gave more power and influence to Iran.

Not true. Look at the timeline.
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php...
Sept. 12, 2002
President Bush accuses Iraq of failing to live up to its obligations to the U.N. during an address to the General Assembly. Bush tells the U.N.: "We know that Saddam Hussein pursued weapons of mass murder even when inspectors were in his country. Are we to assume that he stopped when they left? The history, the logic, and the facts lead to one conclusion: Saddam Hussein's regime is a grave and gathering danger."
Nov. 8, 2002
U.N. Security Council Resolution 1441 says Iraq "remains in material breach of its obligations" under various U.N. resolutions and gives the country "a final opportunity to comply with its disarmament" commitments.
Dec. 7, 2002
Iraq delivers a 12,000-page WMD report to the U.N. in response to Resolution 1441. U.N. chief inspector Hans Blix says the information provided by Iraq is largely recycled material.
(Hans Blix reported his own findings to the U.N. Security Council who issued the resolutions.)
Once again you're cherry picking Carol. The bottom line is that no WMD were found and American lives and treasure were wasted to bolster George W's ego. As the Downing Street memo stated;
"Military action was now seen as inevitable, Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy."
A separate secret briefing paper for the meeting said Britain and the United States had to "create" conditions to justify a war.

Verizon Files Patent for Creepy Device To Watch You While You Watch TV

The new generation of HDTV’s and cable receivers sold to the public contain features that are not very publicized by tech companies: Cameras, mics and sensors that have the ability of recording everything that is happening in the living room. Not unlike the telescreens in George Orwell’s novel 1984, TV’s will soon be able to watch and even thoroughly analyze everyone present in the devices’ vicinity.

The cable company Verizon has recently filed a patent for a system that contain audio and video sensors coupled with facial and profile recognition software. That would allow the company to obtain information such as the number people in the room, their sex, their race, what they are doing and even what they are consuming while watching TV....

Fox News anchor arrested at Minnesota airport
ST. PAUL, Minn.(AP)-- Fox News anchor Gregg Jarrett was arrested at a Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport bar on Wednesday for refusing to cooperate with airport police who were called to the scene, an airport official said.
Jarrett was taken into custody at around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Northern Lights Grill in the main terminal, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. He said the officers reported that Jarrett seemed intoxicated, acted belligerent and refused to follow orders.
Jarrett, 59, was booked into Hennepin County Jail on a preliminary charge of obstructing the legal process by interfering with a peace officer. His bond was set at $300.
A court appearance hadn't been scheduled, and it wasn't clear late Wednesday whether he had been released.
A Fox News spokeswoman, Irena Briganti, didn't immediately respond to an after-hours email seeking comment about the arrest.
the stuff they make them read off of the teleprompters would drive anyone to drink.
