    When he says he won’t debate I take it that he can’t debate.

    Right, I just made that up.

    After a quick initial freeze-up during the second half of September, ice growth slowed substantially during early October. On October 20, 2016, Arctic sea ice extent began to set new daily record lows for this time of year. After mid-October, ice growth returned to near-average rates, but extent remained at record low levels through late October. High sea surface temperatures in open water areas were important in limiting ice growth. October air temperatures were also unusually high, and this warmth extended from the surface through a considerable depth of the atmosphere.

    In October 2016, Arctic sea ice extent averaged 6.40 million square kilometers (2.5 million square miles), the lowest October in the satellite record. This is 400,000 square kilometers (154,400 square miles) lower than October 2007, the second lowest October extent, and 690,000 square kilometers (266,400 square miles) lower than October 2012, the third lowest. The average extent was 2.55 million square kilometers (980,000 square miles) below the October 1981 to 2010 long-term average.

    Predicting? Don’t you mean observing?

    Shouldn’t the first book be “How Ted Cruz’ Father Was Involved in the JFK Assassination” by Donald Trump?

    Circumstances never change, so why should institutions change? If it made sense in the late 18th century, it must make sense in the early 21st century.

    Your (or you’re, if you prefer) two posts seem to contradict each other.

    I LOVE keyboard. I studied piano for years, got up to some Beethoven sonatas, some of the WTC, and some Brahms. Guitar is my main instrument, but I’m a big fan of keyboard. I also played some Scarlatti, and I’ve played a few Scarlatti pieces on guitar, as well. In my younger days, before arthritis. I don’t know Scott Ross, however, so I will check him out.

    NPP is just bearing false witness again.

    Thanks, I’ve looked at these already. My point is that people like NPP talk about studies, but they don’t have these studies, they don’t read them, they probably couldn’t understand them if they did read them. I was really hoping that the election of Clinton would mean that we wouldn’t have to spend so much time dealing with idiotic comments like those of NPP, but unfortunately we will now have to deal with the idiotic comments of the president.
