Studies show that they value their work very highly and are prejudiced against extroverts. http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-16669/study-says-introverts-can-be-pretty-judgmental-at-work.html

Surely you must have meant that their work is highly valued.


When I get to work in the morning, I like to have a cup of coffee and check the new headlines on a few websites. For example, https://physics.aps.org/, with articles like

"Nuclear Spin Points out Arrow of Time,"

"Unexpected Cracking Behavior in Composite Structures,"

"Emerging Quantum Order in an Expanding Gas," and

"Ultracold Neutrons Measure Magnetic Field."

Dull, dull, dull. Oh well, I'm simply one of those introverted scientists.


You, on the other hand, read really sophisticated, difficult content, such as

"What Your Mom's Personality Says About How Successful You'll Be,"

"How To Attract Your Soul Mate And Discover Your Life's Purpose,"

"I Lost 125 Pounds. Here's How I Know I'll Keep It Off," and

"The One Thing You MUST Do During Your Next Poop."

http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2015/1101/Antarctica-is-actually-gaining-ice-says-NASA.-Is-global-warming-over Clearly, the models, the theories, all of it is very underdeveloped art and worthless. If it wasn't such a good political tool and worth fortunes to con-artist politicians we never would have heard much about it. [...]

Thank you for the link to the Science article? I read the entire article. Did you? You conveniently missed some its conclusions, which do in fact show recent ice gains. However the authors of the Science report also point out that the findings reported do NOT mean that there is no global warming threat.

"Climate scientists caution that these findings don’t mean it’s time to start celebrating the end of global warming. More than anything, the paper shows how difficult it is to measure ice height in Antarctica and that better tools are needed.

"It could take only a few decades for the ice melt in Antarctica to outweigh the ice gains," the paper's authors say.

Do you work in a cherry orchard? You seem to know how to pick the low-hanging fruit that supports your opinion but ignore the fruit higher up that puts your opinion in a more global and complete scientific context.

True or False: Exxon-Mobil knew about global warming 40 years ago but kept quiet and instead tried to discredit others who were becoming alarmed about what Exxon-Mobil already knew. (Is anyone having a tobacco lobby flashback...?)

It is alleged in an investigative journalism article in the Los Angeles Times that petroleum giant Exxon-Mobil knew about the role played by fossil fuels in climate change as early as the 1970s, but chose to conceal their information and mislead the public about the crisis in order to maximize their profits and then tried to discredit those outside the company who were issuing warnings about climate change and global warming.

A public petition and several members of Congress have asked the Justice Department to investigate the matter and determine whether or not ExxonMobil committed a criminal conspiracy under the RICO statutes.

What's a tobacco flash back and why would anyone have one?

Now, where's my cigarettes?

There's a battle outside ragin'
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

                        --Bob Dylan

The Governor General of Canada, acting on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, presided this morning over the swearing in of the new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet.

The department formally called "Department of Environment" has been renamed "Department of Environment and Climate Change" and will be headed by the new Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, who, with the new Prime Minister, will represent Canada at the Paris Climate Change summit in December 2015.

Unlike former prime minister, Stephen Harper, a Conservative and a fossil fuel lackey, who abrogated the Kyoto Protocol that Canada had signed before he took office, the new Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, a Liberal, takes climate change and global warming very seriously.

if the climate change deniers are to be believed -- Liberals and lefties in the US are not powerful enough to get sensible gun laws passed, to keep govt surveillance programs from running roughshod over the 4th amendment of the US Constitution, to get sensible campaign finance laws passed, nor to keep HUGE banks from being too big to fail.  But, if the conspiracy theorists are right, progressive lefties have successfully gotten the whole world to pay attention to climate change.  Shocked  They even got Exxon to see the fossil fuel industry's liability decades ago (although it should be recognized that Exxon acted quickly to thwart awareness of the problem and implemented a tobacco industry "science" strategy to try and cloak the problem).   

It is truly amazing -- they can't keep Congress from doling out corporate welfare to big oil, nor can they get our crumpling infrastructure repaired, or improve significantly the quality of our public schools in lower class neighborhoods -- but liberals were able to get scientists and govt.s the world over to believe climate change must be addressed.    Wink
