I have no idea what that means...

It's a reference to 1984

And take a last flyin' look
at the last lonely eagle,
he's soaring the length of the land.
Shed a tear for the fate
of the last lonely eagle,
for you know that he never will land.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Short for Ministry of Truth, Winston was the protagonist in the book 1984.

Got it. Thank you. I read 1984 in the 70's. General references I sometimes get. Specific references are beyond me. Those penguins have fallen off the melting iceberg.

"The Heartland Institute, a nonprofit research and education organization, recently sent approximately 25,000 science teachers a package containing information denying climate change, PBS's Frontline reports. The Heartland Institute is known for rejecting evidence of man-made global warming. Teachers all across the country opened their packages to find a book titled Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming, as well as a DVD that argues that rising temperatures are not due to human activity but have been happening naturally over the years. According to Frontline, the organization plans to send the same package to another 25,000 teachers every two weeks until they have supplied one to every public school science teacher in the country."

Maybe someone should send the Shitland Institute a copy of ExxonMobile's official position on climate change.

Quote:The risk of climate change is clear and the risk warrants action. Increasing carbon emissions in the atmosphere are having a warming effect. There is a broad scientific and policy consensus that action must be taken to further quantify and assess the risks.

Exxon even states they believe a revenue neutral carbon tax would be an effective way to reduces CO2 emissions. That'll make the assholes soil their undies.

Climate change denial no longer has support of industry in general. (Big coal may still be an exception of that generalization.) These days anthropogenic climate change denial is pretty much just a political position.

Save a life. Adopt a greyhound.

Well, if it's any consolation we probably won't really need to. The sedimentary, fossil, and geochemical records that will be preserved normally should show them everything they need to know.
Their religious folk will be shitting themselves when buildings and machinery and books are dug up. Intelligent apes, now that's weird.

And if they find that our technology was better millions of years ago than theirs is now. They'll either think that their own god beliefs are a load of shit or that the devil put these things in the earth to trick them.

RE: Climate Change - General Discussion
"Now, humanity’s consumption of fossil fuels is pushing the planet toward the CO2 levels of the period when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. And that’s the rosier scenario for 200 years from now, a new study has found. By 2300, there would be little precedent for the transformation of the Earth. That’s because humanity’s billowing of CO2 into the atmosphere, chiefly through the consumption of fossil fuels, may be on track in a few centuries to hit a level not seen in 420 million years, according to the findings published yesterday in Nature Communications."

About the congressional hearing last Wednesday:

"Chair of the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology [Republican] Lamar Smith accuses climate change scientists of alarmism."

"Michael Mann—a Penn State University professor of atmospheric science who has received death threats in the past for his work on climate change—was the only mainstream climate scientist on the four-member panel, which also included three noted deniers of the scientific consensus on global warming."

"At one point, when Mann described an article that had been published in Science magazine, Smith responded that 'is not known as an objective magazine.' "
