Nope, it's happening to me and SJGulitti as well. Some posts have content, others don't, like my post on the 60 Minutes thread.

Some of can and do. Others, fearing science or lacking an understanding for science will deny.

And some also recognize how easily science can be manipulated and used for political purpose, rick. Given the lack of hurricanes this season, I am anticipating the usual globalwarmonger community, and Goreans in general, using the mild hurricane season as an example of increased extreme weather change. Too much money and power to be wrested from the current powerholders to let a little thing like weather - or the lack thereof - get in the way. :-)
Yours,
Issodhos

While very true, you do have to admit that recent storms (Sandy, Haiyan), which have developed, are off-of-the-charts in magnitude of strength - which only happened as the result of warming oceans:
