huh ? Have I woken up in a parallel universe ? Did Lewis Page post an article touching on climate change without twisting the facts to suit the denialist agenda ? A thoughtful, intelligent commentary ? Am I dead ? Is this heaven ?
Re: No need to predict...
never mind "borders on", it would break Swiss law, full stop. In fact it would be a criminal offence. But only in the card holder is domiciled in Switzerland and the credit card is issued in Switzerland.
'There is no scientific consensus' on sea-level rise, say scientists - no, actually they didn't. They said there is no consensus on the drivers behind ice sheet melting.
Of all the Denier tossers venting garbage on the internet, this Page guy really takes the biscuit. The Register really is way, way beyond its sell by date.
"However, the fact that almost everyone who IS an expert in climate science accepts anthropogenic climate change to be the best working hypothesis is pretty important here no?"
They may accept it but they don't necessarily jump to alarmist conclusions - they leave that to the agenda-led tosspots on either side. Unfortunately climate science has done a deal with the devil - enhanced funding and high attention from politicians - at the price of having every result, publication and statement shamelessy miquoted and exagerated by politicians and careerist "experts" on both sides of the fence, not to mention nutjob ecofreaks and deniers. There isn't a snowball's chance in Hell of the actual facts, and indeed unknowns, getting heard now.
Well, just don't look then
"Earth is DOOMED if we spot a big asteroid at short notice"
So, if we don't spot it, we're ok ? Fab.
Google Reader killed off all the competing RSS aggregators through anti-competitive behaviour, and now they're pulling it ?
Oh, and with Snapseed Desktop they're quietly beginning to axe the NIK products they acquired, too.
I'm with Adolf on this one.
and a few outliers...
The Man Who Fell To Earth
The Prestige (since people insist that Christopher Priest writes sci-fi...)
K-Pax, even ?
+1 for Twelve Monkeys
C'mon, you cannot NOT have12 Monkeys!!! With Brad Pitt and Bruce Willis forced into totally atypical roles by Gilliam. And... sigh.... deep, deep sigh... Madeleine Stowe.
Or go for La Jetee for beard-stroking points.
Surely it was "Sir Vivian Fuchs off to Antarctic" ?
There's a Buggeru in Sardinia.
Credibility. Have you heard of it ?
"It's almost certainly going to be too much for Amazon, who may discontinue their iOS Kindle app"
huh ? Amazon already provides their own payment platform. Do you have a source for this, is it pure provocative invention (as usual) ?
omg, we're all gonna die
Actually, "Beaker" (as in Muppet) is much more likely to wind up scientists than "Boffin".... (I speak from experience)
This is getting REALLY tedious
"A MacBook Pro lost Internet access"
"A". One. Singular.
FFS, grow up.
Oh, the memories...

"suicides in Greenland from 1968-2002, during which period there were apparently 1351 suicides and 308 homicides"
Blimey. Was there anybody left alive ?
Come again ?
"This is a bit like saying that internal combustion is going to have to pick up some hints from Tesla and its ilk to compete with electric power"
Apart from the fact that Tesla is a "he", not an "it", what exactly is this ridiculous analogy supposed to be illustrating ?
God, standards have plummeted around here....
