    Good answer TWROG. I went a step further and copied the "Correct" answer. Anybody with a brain will see why we both quit after one.

    The IPCC increased its level of certainty on human influence on climate change from "very likely" to "extremely likely"—an increase from at least 90 percent to 95 percent certainty, according to the panel's definitions.

    Sea level rising? Check out the location of marine fossils on the North American continent.

    Science denier? Those marine fossils were relocated by Haliburton to try to disprove man made global warming!

    Tom, rather than think of myself as a science denier, I prefer to think of myself as an idiot ignorer.

    But how can there be so many idiots!!! Don't misunderstand, I agree with you, but the sheer volume of dolts these days is astounding.

    IMHO we're doomed already. The processes set into motion couldn't be stopped now if we could agree. And of course we can't, let alone structure a solution. I just wish we'd find another nice planet real soon. But then, that would require some agreement too. Anybody see the remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" with the lovely Jennifer Connolly (damn she's good lookin') recently. An alien dude, Mr. Wu, and the Keanu Reeves alien character had this exchange. Pretty much sums it up for me.

    [Seated at a McDonald's, Klaatu begins speaking to Mr. Wu in Mandarin]
    Klaatu: You've been out of contact for a long time.
    Mr. Wu: I had a dangerous assignment. This is hostile territory.
    Klaatu: I've noticed. I was hoping I could reason with them.
    Mr. Wu: I'm afraid they are not a reasonable race. I've been living amongst them for seventy years now. I know them well.
    Klaatu: And?
    Mr. Wu: Any attempt to intercede with them would be futile. They are destructive, and they won't change.
    Klaatu: Is that your official report?
    Mr. Wu: The tragedy is, they know what's going to become of them.
    [Both Klaatu and Wu turn to look at Helen, Jacob and Wu's grandson who are seated at another table]
    Mr. Wu: They sense it. But they can't seem to do anything about it.
    [They switching to speaking English]
    Mr. Wu: I'm staying.
    Klaatu: You can't stay here.
    Mr. Wu: I can and I will.
    Klaatu: If you stay, you'll die.
    Mr. Wu: I know. This is my home now.
    Klaatu: You yourself called them a destructive race.
    Mr. Wu: That's true. But still, there is another side. You see, I... I love them. It is a very strange thing. I... I... I can't find a way to explain it to you. For many years I cursed my luck for being sent here. Human life is difficult. But as this life is coming to an end... I consider myself lucky... to have lived it.
    Ride on muthas !!
