    seriously now, just how many ping pong ball related surgeries have you performed thus far during your illustrious career?
    Does taking one out of someone's ass count?

    Explain to me how skepticism of science is quintessentially Catholic. This I gotta hear. No rush, I'll start the popcorn maker.

    Let's do some livin'

    It's not so much skepticism as opposition to anything that goes against Canon or their faith.
    Galileo for starters.. Also throw in the opposition to stem cell research and vaccines developed from aborted fetal tissue..

    Yes, I believe that it would...... so including that, what would the grand total of ping pong ball related surgical procedures be?

    I was thinking the same. Only a few days when it went over 90.

    Anchorage hitting 90 is crazy. What happens to Alaska if they get a drought and 90 degree temps? Wildfires the size of Maine?

    "Here’s what happens when you try to replicate climate contrarian papers
    A new paper finds common errors among the 3% of climate papers that reject the global warming consensus"

    Those who reject the 97% expert consensus on human-caused global warming often invoke Galileo as an example of when the scientific minority overturned the majority view. In reality, climate contrarians have almost nothing in common with Galileo, whose conclusions were based on empirical scientific evidence, supported by many scientific contemporaries, and persecuted by the religious-political establishment. . .

    You may have noticed another characteristic of contrarian climate research – there is no cohesive, consistent alternative theory to human-caused global warming. Some blame global warming on the sun, others on orbital cycles of other planets, others on ocean cycles, and so on. There is a 97% expert consensus on a cohesive theory that’s overwhelmingly supported by the scientific evidence, but the 2–3% of papers that reject that consensus are all over the map, even contradicting each other. The one thing they seem to have in common is methodological flaws like cherry picking, curve fitting, ignoring inconvenient data, and disregarding known physics.

    If any of the contrarians were a modern-day Galileo, he would present a theory that’s supported by the scientific evidence and that’s not based on methodological errors. Such a sound theory would convince scientific experts, and a consensus would begin to form. Instead, as our paper shows, the contrarians have presented a variety of contradictory alternatives based on methodological flaws, which therefore have failed to convince scientific experts.

    Human-caused global warming is the only exception. It’s based on overwhelming, consistent scientific evidence and has therefore convinced over 97% of scientific experts that it’s correct.

    What would happen if a hurricane (likely an ex-tropical storm by that point) hit Greenland? Has it ever happened in recorded history?

    1/2 a millimeter of sea level rise just from Greenland in July. Goes to show just how quickly we could see seas rise if there were just a few more warm days in future summers. Less sea ice means warmer water temps, warmer Greenland. Arctic is warming so much faster than everywhere else... what happens if Greenlandís average temp goes up another 2-3 celsius? The more water there is on the ice sheet the faster the ice flows and melts. Fucking house of cards.

    Greenland will finally live up to all the marketing hype.

    I think that we are totally fucked.

    Well, it's *REAL* climate science - it says so right there in the URL! I'm convinced.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.
