Here is a tale of two scientists who, in an effort to counter bias regarding their alternative climate change paradigm, published under pseudonyms.

Their research, analysis, and conclusions should stand or fall on the merit, or lack of merit, contained within. Not on who they are. Kind of an interesting story.

Tonya, we should treat one another with respect. People don't have to agree with each other and often don't.

Hello all. I am new here. So...what is this group's etiquette protocol?

From one ember to another, thanks.  LOL

Don't worry about it Don. I know you don't mean anything bad. My fire is at the dimming ember stage anyway.

Dan, l knew what you wanted to say after I read the article.  I wasn't trying to pour water on your fire.

Comment by Daniel W on September 11, 2016 at 11:38am
Donald, you are correct.
Comment by Donald L. Engel on September 11, 2016 at 11:28am

Daniel, the article doesn't talk about climate change, itself.  It talks about people's reaction to news of climate change.

What is the effect of presenting facts, to a polarized population - a big part of this article concerns anthropogenic climate change as well as other facets of our society's polarization.

I just bought my first electric lawn mower and think it is pretty cool. I like the technology. It runs on 2 40v Li batteries and has 2 smaller blades. It is rather quiet and I don't smell like gasoline after mowing the lawn.
