Et tu, Mr. Destructo?: Game Over: Scans of Over 50 Ron Paul Newsletters For a certain segment of the Ron Paul fanbase, no evidence of his disseminating hateful, paranoid material will ever be enough. Citing James Kirchick's piece in wasn't sufficient, because Kirchick could have just been "making everything up." Then, when I and others posted copies of "," that too wasn't convincing. Well, now there are many documents. Over fifty. As I said in my rundown on the Paul platform over at Vice, reasonable fans of Dr. there's no way Paul could have been ignorant of the content [of] 8-12 page newsletters published under his name for over ten years. Further, you can't dismiss this in the name of higher political or socioeconomic aspirations. when you opt to support anti-imperialist and civil liberties ideals by supporting Paul the Candidate, you end up supporting everything else about him. It's fine to have convictions about things he believes in. And still, for the faithful, this will not be enough. Ron Paul Newsletter—April, 1993: The New York Bombing Dr. "Dr. "St.

Ten Charts That Make Clear The Planet Just Keeps Warming By Joe Romm on October 15, 2012 at 6:46 pm "Ten Charts That Make Clear The Planet Just Keeps Warming" Perhaps you thought that the whole “planet isn’t warming” meme was killed by this summer’s bombshell Koch-funded study. After all, it found ”global warming is real,” “on the high end” and “essentially all” due to carbon pollution. Sadly, denial springs eternal. The piece is so misleading, even the UK Met Office felt a need to instantly debunk it with a blog post that included this chart. UK Met Office graph showing years ranked in order of global temperature. Since Rose managed to find one misleading chart to push his myth, I thought I would dig up ten serious ones that show the reverse, including the top chart from Skeptical Science, the great Australian blog, which is derived from the data in the Koch-funded study. Note: “Skeptics” is an Aussie word for denier or disinformer. As we’ve stressed before, choosing a starting or end point on short-term scales can be very misleading.

Water Shortage! Ever since the beginning of this nation, Americans have always been able to take for granted that there would always be plenty of fresh water. But unfortunately that is rapidly changing. Due to pollution, corruption, inefficiency and the never ending greed of the global elite, the United States (and the entire world) is heading for a very serious water shortage. Already, there are some areas of the United States where water is the number one local political issue. According to a new report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council, more than one-third of all counties in the lower 48 states will likely be facing very serious water shortages by 2050. And Americans certainly do use a lot of water. In fact, a five minute shower by an American uses more water than a typical person living in poverty in a developing country uses in an entire day. For hundreds of years, North America has been blessed with an overabundance of fresh water, but those supplies are quickly running dry. Why?

Shutdown of thermohaline circulation A summary of the path of the thermohaline circulation. Blue paths represent deep-water currents, while red paths represent surface currents A shutdown or slowdown of the thermohaline circulation is a postulated effect of global warming. Thermohaline circulation and fresh water[edit] The red end of the spectrum indicates slowing in this presentation of the trend of velocities derived from NASA Pathfinder altimeter data from May 1992 to June 2002. Some even fear that global warming may be able to trigger the type of abrupt massive temperature shifts which occurred during the last glacial period: a series of Dansgaard-Oeschger events – rapid climate fluctuations – may be attributed to freshwater forcing at high latitude interrupting the THC. Studies of the Florida Current suggest that the Gulf Stream weakens with cooling, being weakest (by ~10%) during the Little Ice Age.[13] Measurements in 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2010[edit] Bryden measurements reported late 2005[edit] See also[edit]

The Fact File » Your source of factual information on today's top issues. SEARCH : Study of Environmental Arctic Change About the Sea Ice Outlook Fractured Sea Ice The SEARCH Sea Ice Outlook is an international effort to provide a community-wide summary of the expected September arctic sea ice minimum. Monthly reports released throughout the summer synthesize community estimates of the current state and expected minimum of sea ice—at both a pan-arctic and regional scale. The intent of the SEARCH Sea Ice Outlook effort is not to issue predictions, but rather to summarize all available data and observations to provide the scientific community, stakeholders, and the public the best available information on the evolution of arctic sea ice. Sea Ice Outlook activities are supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and through the volunteer efforts of contributors.
