 2014 was the hottest year on record according to NASA. All ten of the hottest years have come since 1998.
 I think the most interesting thing about Swift is that, for once, Apple are listening to developers. This was a point that the presenters and engineers at WWDC last year made over and over again. The development of Swift is way more open than anything I've seen from Apple in the past. Developers' comments are being taken on board and used to shape the future of Swift.
 I'm not saying it's true, I'm saying that it's been through rigorous peer review - something that can't be said of the amateur climate change denial articles that you quote.
 According to a peer-reviewed article in one of the world's most respected science journals, it's not. If you've got a legitimate rebuttal of the article, you should write to Nature. I'm sure they'd be delighted to publish it.
Global warming slowdown: No systematic errors in climate models Sceptics who still doubt anthropogenic climate change have now been stripped of one of their last-ditch arguments: It is true that there has been a warming hiatus and that the surface of the earth has warmed up much less rapidly since the turn of the millennium than all the relevant climate models had predicted. However, the gap between the calculated and measured warming is not due to systematic errors of...
 This simply isn't true. If scientific funding was based on following the consensus, there would be no great breakthroughs in science. Scientists make a name for themselves by going against the grain not by saying "I agree". There's plenty of big egos in science and I'm sure someone would love to be the person who debunked man-made climate change. And yet, it's never happened in a properly peer-reviewed scientific journal. Not even when the research has been funded by...
 I doubt many scientists are in it for the money. I read natural sciences at university. My classmates who left the field - myself included - earn far more than those who stayed. And funding isn't even issue either. When climate change studies are funded by right-wing foundations, the results are the same as those funded by other means.  I'm not a climate change scientist but I do have a background in science. I'm willing to trust the huge volume of peer-reviewed...
 That's a great graphic. What chance has the scientific community got of convincing Americans that climate change is mostly man-made when they can't even convince them that humans are descended from other apes?
Rand Paul needs to do the math. Once the US senate gives companies a temporary tax break, who is ever going to repatriate money at the normal rate ever again? They'll just argue that another tax break is due.
Where in the states did you grow up? Was it a generally a right- or left-wing area? Rural or urban? Have you been to college? Are you Christian?Maybe your political views are based on logic. Maybe they're based on your life experiences and cultural environment.
