CORRECTION: You’re someone with no words and no real ideas. Go join the circus. My bad you would scare the children of the world just stay away from the general public would be a better idea. My core interest is science your interest is scientific science fiction. Don’t be flattered I only respond to your useless babble because your free entertainment.

Your own words above "May" is a scientific science fiction discovery try again. Teach the children science is a good thing so when are you going to start? Well the children could have control of the negative aspects if you would teach the positive aspects and understand the difference. To date you only post useless scientific science fiction negative aspects.
Oh you’re puzzled for sure. So when are you going to show your peer reviewed published work? You do spend many hours on useless scientific science fiction and zero on real science.
Now its clear SoE represents Son of Entertainment.And yes that is all you are free entertainment.

Stopped by to see how things are. Noticed a wallowing in addressing the issues. For those truly interested in { Global Warming } as it presently portrays itself, suggest an area that has addressed that issue from several scientific areas. One , that has several sites and how the information has been gathered and extrapolated.
Take a boring Sunday Excursion. Look up { paleoclimatology} and jump in. Everything from orbital effects to continental migrations. Volcanoes, regular and super. Bi-Nary Star system--Nemeses ? Comets, Meteorites and asteroids. Note pattern of hot cold times and the rapid changes of one to another. Gases, go back to when no oxygen existed in free form. CO2 and nitrogen ruled. Sure beats sitting on the sofa watching sitcom reruns. Solve the mystery for real. Now there’s a thriller that will stick with ya.
For those that seek some to extol their diminished self esteem suggest a site that is more appropriate. Psychophysical ..

The past is a an observation of history that can identify the flaws of and or benefits of previous experiences. Whether we use that to determine our future will be determined by our abilities to recognize their flaws and benefits. How do we distinguish a flaw or a benefit? Some will say this is a flaw another would contend it is a benefit. Are we then to decipher the information, to what we determine to be the “Norm”. Is it by a majority or can we deduce facts that are universal? What is normal.? Various cultures will address normal differently. Example Judah, Islamic, Hindu, etc… Measure their success rate for humanities’’ existence in say a peaceful nature. Past indicates a failure rate. Do we continue? Some say yes. Majority? Is this correct base to progress from?
How then do we determine success in any application of a theory that we have deciphered from the past to determine our future? Do we construct a theory that can be tested and measured. As the theories prove or disprove themselves we continue to question and experiment. Beliefs take a back seat to facts that are tested and proven correct or false. Note this will not require thousands of years to identify false facts from correct {so far } facts. Observe the evolution of science in the efficiency to discerning facts from false to correct . No correct fact is taken as absolute but continuously seeking to prove it incorrect. There in lays the fundamental difference of beliefs vs. science. Beliefs obstruct those that seek to prove them to be incorrect. Trudging on for thousands of years on false premises before they dissolve from the shear weight of their ignorance of the prevailing realities. Similar to what is occurring presently with our populace in their observations of “Global Warming”. Note how beliefs are being escorted to the back seats of our sciences’. Majority or not… Beliefs is a callow expression of our past, nothing more.. There are no exact same conditions. Space time continuum does not support that theory of yours.
Now would it not be interesting to have a thread on Psychophysical or perhaps Metaphysical? Hmmmm…. Your show SOE…

Wrong again SoE AKA Son of Entertainment. Actually science is no concern to you only scientific science fiction. Yes they do respond where have you been? They may agree or not with the answer directly or indirectly but they do respond. Now if you pay some attention the ones that do respond with hate the posers that can't answer in a scientific manner so they use the cut and paste scientific science fiction useless babble method. Yes the problem is you, your failure to recognize the difference between science and scientific science fiction. Try again.

Sorry,...the problem must be me.
Actually, i couldn't even follow most of your post....posers?
Cut and paste doesn't equal reference?

Ok,...I will set back and see the responses your post receives.
Perhaps i can then see the errors and extent of my approach...

Beware of Wiki! It is not the scientists who you need to be concerned about, it is the big energy corporations.

CNET reported that BP's press representative "Arturo BP" was not touching BP's page, but instead relied on other editors to make changes. Arturo BP was as a proxy to vet facts for Wikipedia from "experts within the company."

Indeed, companies can and do manage their Wikipedia profiles. Wikipedia page management is often viewed as brand management. What's unclear is where the line between corporate brand management, community and fact and fiction lie.

I'm not surprised. That's why I donate $$ to Wikipedia as an individual.

A personal question, what about your profile?
