Go to: Darwin Foes Add Warming to Targets

Keddaw you obviously can provide links to actual peer reviewed articles that show climate science being "flawed" right?

To me it seems you have bought into the media spin on climate science. The whole email fiasco is but an attempt to muddy the waters by people with no evidence. Whoever "exposed" the CRU emails only did it to damage the public perception of scientists. To suggest that was a credible expose into the flaws of climate science is absurd.

This article explains how bad journalism has essentially fabricated this "flawed science" you talk about.

The climate email hack is well paralleled with evolution denialism. They never actually produce any real evidence, they just look for ways to discredit or dismantle the scientific consensus. These methods never include any actual research and are only designed to muddy the waters of public perception.

Go to: It is not part of anyone’s culture to be abused

Executions might make some of us feel better but in the long run death is an easy out for these barbarians. I think that rotting the rest of their lives away in jails surrounded by familiar scum is a much better way to make them suffer. In my opinion the rights of liberty come with a responsibility to be a good citizen. When a person forfeits that responsibility they should loose their rights in equal measure to the severity of the crime. In the case of murdering your own daughter the state should remove you from society and make the rest of your life a reflection of your worth to society. Which is near worthless in the case of these honor killing rejects.

Forget whatever specific religion is responsible for this atrocity. Religion is just an unfourtunate byproduct of faith and ultimately the idea that faith is a valid mode of thought is the problem. If faith wasn't a value and belief without evidence were looked down on then ignorant poor people might question why thier leaders ask thme to accept absurd ideas and actions.

Go to: Group wants Wi-Fi banned from public buildings

I would say it's more probable that it's a psychological factor rather than a physiological effect from radio waves. I think it would be interesting if an experiment tested wether they suffer the same effects with other wireless devices such as a cordless phone, radio, walkie talkies or wireless x-box controllers. They all produce similar types of transmissions, if someone is sensitive to them we should see differing levels of reaction to varying levels of exposure you would think.

From a study posted today about how countries stack up against each other on science education it looks like the US didn't do to well. However Canada made 3rd place....I wonder what we are doing up here that the US isn't doing down there.
