Staying on topic

I don't want to be the annoying upstart who criticizes everyone else, but...here we go.

Could we please make an effort to stay on topic on forum threads? It's discouraging to post a question or comment hoping for a healthy, focused discussion and see the thread devolve into insults and unrelated musings.

If you're not interested (or informed) in a particular topic, that's fine. But please don't ruin it for others who are trying to provoke some intelligent discussion.

That is known in past as a highjack of a thread. Recently it usually contains intellectual addition of pertinent facts criticizing a poster who is a
(add chosen labels from the Smegma brothers) .
But it is easy to just ask if you think some one is gone off the reservation. Some just go way off and start things all over again.
We haven't quite had time enough time to determine if you are an annoying up start. It does take a while. At least you haven't reached the annoying pain in the ass level yet.

Carry on and keep the faith.

Just beause I have said you are wrong on a couple of occaisions there was no need for that.
Prolific posting is not highjacking. Now a example of that would be turning evry topic into a constitutional problem
like "bill of attainer" !

For the past several months,

For the past several months, including what many claim has been the warmest/driest fall season, the drought has broken. The global warming/climate change crowd blame each (drought and now fall rains) on increased carbon in our atmosphere. Do you agree?

How much are you willing to pay me (and Gore & Co.) for either answer?
After all, that's what it's all about.

Now there is an interesting

Now there is an interesting segue. No matter how they try the Progressives will never repeal the law of thermodynamics or convince most thinking people that man has a significant impact on the natural cooling of the earth or the factors that determine its timing. Recorded history of weather and temperature are at best several thousands of years old. Assumptions of earlier times can be made from drillings in the polar ice caps but, the polar ice caps underlying terrain is not always where it is now because the earth was not always an oblate spheroid as evidenced by the fact there is oil in Alaska that can only have come from decomposing plant life where none can now exists. Also, large parts of the western united states were at one time under water as evidenced by the geological strata built up over time.

The center of the earth is still molten and its insulating crust is increasing in depth as the earth cools to the temperature of the atmosphere therefore decreasing but not stopping the rate of heat transfer.

The atmosphere contains about 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, the rest are trace gases such as carbon dioxide, neon and hydrogen. Carbon dioxide is heavier than air and therefore, despite the mixing effect of the earth's rotation the carbon dioxide is closer to the earth than either the oxygen or nitrogen. This small amount is an absolute requirement for plant life to exist and thrive and any attempt to reduce it will result in death of plant life. Plant life, including trees, through photosynthesis, use the carbon component of the carbon dioxide and release free oxygen to the atmosphere. Nature replenishes this supply of carbon dioxide by starting fires, with lightning and man helps by combusting other hydrocarbons such as coal, oil and natural gas.

Man inhales the atmosphere and uses the oxygen in the conversion of food to energy to produce work. He exhales the other components of the atmosphere.

If the Progressives would focus their energy and activities as have the Dutch to hold back the sea and concentrate on mitigating the impact of natural activities such as floods and forest fires we would all be better off. The problem is they and their supporters would not be able to obtain the unbalanced distribution of nature's largess that is now in their favor.

Dear God, how did this thread devolve into an attack on global warming alarmists?!

Or is my autism preventing me from detecting the irony...

Some supporters of same-sex

Some supporters of same-sex marriage posit that, despite any empirical data, autism rates among children reared in 'traditional' families are elevated when compared to those raised by the two-mommy type. Has anyone heard of such claims?

DisPas: Don't fret. Those

DisPas: Don't fret. Those who segue into topics totally unrelated to the initial post do so to vent their frustration in a falsely assumed anonymity. Rather than post their comments as new issues where others will respond they append them to totally unrelated issues where they will avoid feedback. You will also note that few are original thoughts, but the musings of others, which also insulates them from personal criticism. You will also note that of the many people who log on to AMG do not post at all. It would be interesting to learn just how many individuals do visit the site. The owner only knows the individuals who log on to post and the number of hits each topic gets. Like the U. S. Census, the owner has no way of determining how many of the hits are repeats and in the case of the Census Bureau, how many people there are in the U. S.

One time. One freaking time

One time. One freaking time I accidentally clicked on an ad for a Fluke Meter. It's been a few months and I'm still amazed by how often Google's Al Gore rhythms tempt me with more and more Fluke Meter ads even though I never clicked on another. Has anyone else had this experience or is mine just a fluke?
