Antarctic process melts Arctic

The largest source of Antarctic Bottom Water in the thermohaline circulation, prior to 1976, was a polynya (area of open water) that formed in ice of the Weddell Sea each winter, from current deflected off an undersea ridge. Anthropogenic warming caused a freshwater lid that shut down the Weddell Sea polynya. As a result, the subtropics are warmer, with more high pressure areas and stronger trade winds. This impacts the northern hemisphere by increasing the flow of warm water from the Atlantic…See More

Poo Fools (us all)

Posted on December 25, 2011 at 2:01pm 46 Comments

Day after day I see Atheist Nexus members argue scripture details, spreading theistic memes here, without realizing their self-betrayal. Memetics still seems, to most, an abstract intellectual debate. We can't grasp religion as an infective agent. We can't see ourselves as merely copying machines for viruses.…

Thank you for the welcome!

Hi Ruth 

Just to say thanks for telling me part of your story. I can understand it; also my wife had IBS for several years. How it came and how it went, we do not know.
I’ve been on my relevant drugs for six years now. The cancer was found too late. It was already locally advanced when found, but the treatment is holding it at bay temporarily. Because I have the sword of Damocles above my head I am working like mad—maybe 60 hours every week, week on week, and getting out to major conferences, running sessions, giving lectures. Also writing several books, some are advanced or finished. Will publish as ebooks. This is why I spend little time on Atheist Nexus—so much to do.
So let’s keep smiling, both of us.   Yours, Terry.

The rules must be working Ruth. This is the cleanest site I've ever been on. I haven't seen the first bit of spam here and for the most part people are very civil to each other.
Maybe it's because there are no theists. I've seen theists become extremely nasty on other sites. Go figure.

Dear Ruth, I deleted the video immediately upon reading your message. It works in the U.K so I wouldn't think it's a problem. It was just an afterthought to the discussion and doesn't need to be replaced.

Ruth, I'm not the best cook, but I use the extra virgin for saute.  We don't do super hot temps.  We have a gas stove with the burner set on medium.  My partner grew up on Chinese stir fry and this works for him too.  I scramble eggs and make hash browns with the same olive oil at medium.  It is Kirkland Extra Virgin Organic in 2 liter bottle.

For all I know we do it all wrong, but it works for us.

Ruth, just as a point of information: could you please edit the title on your Fuck You= Australia's Coal Policy piece?  Back when we actually had moderators on here, they used to be concerned about that getting A|N flagged for inappropriate content.  I'm not a moderator, but I think that's important enough to consider.

Thanks in advance.
