Maybe I'm calloused, but I don't consider that a 'new' problem for places like New Orleans or the Maldives. When you are a coastal town below sea level, or an island that is on average 4ft above sea level, you are ALREADY in dire straights. You should ALREADY have dikes and Tsunami preparations and...

I think there is worry that the increase in temperature will accelerate the melting of the polar ice caps raising sea levels. A 1-2 degree although small to us is significant overall. There's a lot of concern by coastal towns and low-lying islands or island nations.

After thinking about it, I'm sorry if I offended you by my simplification. I should've stuck to the original argument of sunspots on temperature. If I recall correctly, based on the trend from the previous cycle to the current, by the mid 21st we should see ~0.5C increase. Small but not negligible. ...

Seedload, Skeptics believe the trends we see are natural. They argue that believers don't have enough previous data (pre-industrial) to prove otherwise. That is the base of many of the claims, but if you'd like I can link several skeptical politician's arguments on the matter. CFCs break down our Oz...

The peak sun spot cycle will end between 2012-2014, however; this has little or nothing to do with AWG. Also astronomers as far as I know weren't predicting any such nonsense, they were predicting the 11 year sunspot cycle, which is fairly common knowledge now. AWG states the average temperature of ...

Slopes on graphs tell odd stories. A good example would be my introduction to engineering course where we did an experiment where we monitored the temperature of water as it went from its liquid to solid state (YaY ice cream makers). The resulting graph showed the temperature lower to 32 degrees F. ...

Well since probability is the average of trends as you approach infinity and since we don't have infinite attempts, I'd say its ...very probably unlikely :)

I don't think many will go along with your new mathematics of chance. Actually college mathematics would agree with Chris here or at least my Discrete Mathematics 566 did. What Chris stated was that certainly there is a 50/50 chance of either heads or tails in a coin flip, but you aren't going to g...

Hey man....I like chocolate. Gotta grade on effort even if the effort is to prolong a potentially large scam or misguided idea.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'll give Rossi a 15% chance of being real. What he has done is given 3 demonstrations of a black-box as it were and then said "Tada!" Unfortunately magicians can do the same and without complete empirical evidence, all we have is that tada statement. Here is what ...

What are the planned experiments and experimental devices to prove or disprove this effect? I'm not looking for an academic paper but more or less a layman's description of how such a device utilizing this effect might work.
