Even a 100% die hard skeptic would respect a scientific statement that the chances of the Texas fire and Russia fire last year being a normal fluctuations is 0.13%.

No such equivocation attends a Goddard Institute for Space Studies appraisal of the heat wave that assaulted Texas, Oklahoma, and northeastern Mexico last summer. Their report represents a sea change in high-level climate studies in that they boldly assert a causal link between specific weather events and global warming. The Texas heat wave, like a similar one in Russia the previous year, was so hot that its probability of occurring under “normal” conditions (defined as those prevailing from 1951 to 1980) was approximately 0.13%. It wasn’t a 100-year heat wave or even a 500-year one; it was so colossally improbable that only changes in the underlying climate could explain it. [emphasis mine]

How are you doing bud?

Well, thinking about you and hope the hostile one has evaporated. Catch up with you later.

House Elf's are very cool! Hey I'm sorry to hear about the hostility on the site. I just reported a troll not too long ago. The troll was removed from the site. I hope things get better on the site for you.

David, I did not realize there was hostility on this site. I know how miserable that is, having been a target of some pretty nasty stuff from someone who disagreed with me. I read many of your comments, although I am very behind on reading mail. Is there some group that I could receive you comments? Don't want to lose you.

Hey, thanks for accepting! Nice to meet ya! :)

David, maybe you would be interested in this group.

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.

Hey bud, thanks for friending me!  Glad to have you hear, your discussions are always spot-on and have no Vogon bias.  None.

Hello David. Saw that you posted this discussion on Google, which I fully support. Anytime you want to share anything from me, I will fully support. But what I want to know is how can I get to this on Google to view it. Thanks for the help, my friend, and have a great day.

Hey, David. If you mean the movie, yes. Don't know much more about it than that.
