It's rather bang-on topic, but a few searches of kisrael agree with my memory that you haven't linked to Michael Crichton's Caltech speech a year ago, which made some rounds in blogs last week, on the topic of consensus science, notably the Drake Equation and the SETI prospects it implies, Nuclear Winter, and Global Warming:
brrr. brr brr Brr brr BRRRRR.
Have you read it? I don't expect that it'll change your mind, but it should at least stimulate The Skeptic Within.

Enjoyed the Crichton piece. Since you and Kirk enjoy real science, here are extremely helpful links that I've collected for our sailing. Much goes into influencing wind, weather and climate patterns. It helps to use these on a regular basis to understand weather around the world:

sorry for the excessive length of above. I've collected and helped friends find ways to access weather for years. Raised by an astrophysicist who put satellites in space, I've had a real interest in what makes the earth tick, click and whirl :) ..... Rennie

When you're in the corner and have got no cash to get out from that point, you will need to receive the personal loans. Just because it would help you for sure. I take short term loan every single year and feel myself good just because of it.

Specialists argue that personal loans aid a lot of people to live their own way, just because they can feel free to buy needed things. Moreover, some banks offer secured loan for different classes of people.
--loan Thu Aug 11 05:50:31 2011
All people deserve very good life time and loans or just term loan would make it better. Just because freedom relies on money.

hoUqSO Strange but true. Your resource is expensive. At least it could be sold for good money on its auction!...
