No point, no proof. FYI..

We "should not be expected to turn a blind eye to the policies of occupation, blockade and destruction that the Israeli government has been implementing against the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza."

The killing of civilians and the bombing of hospitals and U.N. schools in Gaza "constitute a grave violation of not only the international law, but also the most fundamental human values."

Average Price of Electricity Climbs to All-Time Record
July 29, 2014 - 2:20 PM
By Terence P. Jeffrey

( CNSNews.com )- For the first time ever, the average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity in the United States has broken through the 14-cent mark, climbing to a record 14.3 cents in June, according to data released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Before this June, the highest the average price for a KWH had ever gone was 13.7 cents, the level it hit in June, July, August and September of last year.

The 14.3-cents average price for a KWH recorded this June is about 4.4 percent higher than that previous record....

Germany has been rapidly increasing its green energy production but hasn’t gotten the results it planned.

The Switzerland-based FAA Financial Advisory AG looked at the consequences of Germany’s “Energiewende” and found that the $412 billion effort did “not provide net savings to consumers, but rather a net increase in costs to consumers and other stakeholders.”

“Over the last decade, well-intentioned policymakers in Germany and other European countries have created renewable energy policies that have slowly revealed themselves to be unsustainable, resulting in profound, unintended consequences for all industry stakeholders,” reads FAA’s report which was prepared for the Edison Electric Institute and other European groups.

Consumer energy bills have been spiking for years to the point where electricity in the country has been called a “luxury good” by major media outlets. German households have seen electricity prices more than double in the last decade “increasing from €0.14/kilowatt hour (kWh)($0.18) in 2000 to more than €0.29/kWh ($0.38) in 2013,” according to FAA. This is compared to U.S. household prices, which have been stable at $0.13 per kilowatt hour over the last decade.

"If you can't explain the 'pause', you can't explain the cause"

An updated list of at least 29 excuses for the 18 year 'pause' in global warming, including recent scientific papers, media quotes, blogs, and related debunkings:

1) Low solar activity

2) Oceans ate the global warming [debunked][debunked][debunked]

3) Chinese coal use [debunked]

4) Montreal Protocol

13) "Scientists looking at the wrong 'lousy' data" http://

14) Cold nights getting colder in Northern Hemisphere

15) We forgot to cherry-pick models in tune with natural variability [debunked]

16) Negative phase of Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation

17) AMOC ocean oscillation

18) "Global brightening" has stopped

19) "Ahistorical media"

20) "It's the hottest decade ever" Decadal averages used to hide the 'pause'[debunked]

"All of this "muck" has been written off as a necessary by-product of Free Speech and been tolerated, even though some of the behavior exhibited in 100-million comments on Topix, is base and inhumane. It has been proven that trolls, at their worst, are hired and trained disinformation agents, commentators who intentionally disrupt discussions, spread racism, attack important social services and bully real-person commentators. This has been proven by this 2007 article:
Make no mistake: GOP is paying trolls to "blog attack"

"And yet trolls openly run all over Topix forums, in fact they are supported by Topix! The company has engineered its forums to be especially troll-friendly, giving certain trolls hidden access to programming tricks that allow them to maneuver the forums way beyond the average commentator. I have conducted an investigation, here are my findings."
These are some of Topix's devious troll-friendly, everyday practices:

"• Topix practices a form of censorship called "shadow-banning". A commentator will be blocked from the forums, without any contact or warning notice email from the Topix company. They will then, continue to see on their computer, every comment they write posted to the forums. Unbeknownst to them, they are the only ones who can see these comments, every other Topix viewer does not see their comments. This programming dirty trick, can fool a banned commentator into commenting for months and months without realizing their writing is not being seen. I have been twice shadow-banned from Topix. The first time it took me over two weeks to discover it. I was lucky, it could have been months. Topix is also able to shadow-ban a single comment, the commentator sees it, no one else. This is happening on all Topix outlets and this article decries the practice: Chris Tolles, Topix Whoremonger and Bile Dealer Chris Tolles Also Pathfinder in Censorship and Shadow-Banning"

"• Moderated commenting trick. Once a commentator has been put under moderation (and I have been), a 3-5 minute delay is put on their comments before they are published. The trolls are then notified, thus given time to come up with a response and attach it to the comment. I ran a test on Topix, posting 28 comments after midnight, each time my comment was published 5 minutes after I had written it, with a troll comment already attached to it. I took screen shots of the entire process and documented the times.

• Topix trolls steal commentator's usernames. Once a person's username has been stolen by a troll, a commentator can never use that name, in the specific lettering the troll typed, ever again. This becomes especially dangerous, when a commentator uses their real name. This happened to me. The trolls on the Pasadena Star-News Topix forums would lift my real name and post comments as "me". There was nothing I could do about it except to follow them around the forums calling out comments I did not write. Many slipped away from me, without my seeing them. You can imagine the danger to a person in this. My opinion was being forged. The image below shows the troll using my full real name. "

Actually it's the USA that is responsible for Hamas' actions. You see we gave them billions of dollars after Israel gave the Palestinians land to settle on. The money was to build homes, schools, hospitals, business, etc. Instead, Hamas built tunnels to annihilate Israel. Yay team USA!
Not the USA, Hamas is designated a terrorist organization. Hamas is at war with Israel.

We are deniers only because of science being 95% certain while you "believers" have been 100% certain our children are doomed. Who's the fear mongering neocon?

There's no difference between 100 or 95 for public policy actions.

You should ask your insurance agent to educate yourself a little.

So my insurance company is 95% sure and science is 95% sure the planet is not flat and 95% sure smoking will cause cancer?
Wanting this misery to be real is a crime against humanity and history will prove it.!
