    just a short note to let everyone know that as a moderator team we have decided that from now on, global warming threads should be posted under "Environmental Issues" and not under "Earth Sciences"

    any new threads on the subject posted here will be moved

    Good move. What with the Global Warming crowd manufacturing their statistics they certainly don't belong on any forum that claims to revere the objectivity of honest-to-God Science.

    Maybe down in "Environmental Issues" (what the heck is an "issue"?) they can all sit around and scream "the sky is falling" while we up here sit around and exchange important ideas.

    Actually the sky is falling. Due to stratospheric cooling (exactly as predicted by models) the density is increasing, resulting in a reduction in altitude of the F region.

    I must have missed where you exchanged ideas on any other topic, milum.

    I'll try to remember that, but I have grown tired of the arguing on the topic and probably will still stay out of most conversations. I guess it get's placed in both forums because it is a geoscience, and environmental concern. I personally think of it as a geoscience (earth science). I'll try to keep future threads there however.

    Thanx.

    See? Bunbury won't do right. Even on a venue that tells us not to discuss Global Warming Bunbury discusses Global Warming. I tell you that fellow Bunbury is incorrigible.

    He is a nice guy but prone to pout if put down by moderators.

    Does this thread qualify as a global warming thread?

    haha - this was actually supposed to be an announcement, not a discussion thread
    closed before it turns into a clone of all the other global warming threads
