Gore blasted over Global Warming HOAX

(from foxnews)

The founder of the Weather Channel is ridiculing Al Gore over his calls for action on global climate change, saying in a column that global warming is a "hoax" and "bad science."
John Coleman, now a weatherman at San Diego's KUSI, wrote on his station's Web site Wednesday that Gore refuses to acknowledge the faulty research on which the idea of global warming is based.
Coleman's lengthy scolding came as the former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner addressed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and urged lawmakers to pass a bill that would put caps on heat-trapping gases and take the lead on a global climate treaty.
Coleman wrote that the Environmental Protection Agency is "on the verge" of naming CO2 (carbon dioxide) as a pollutant, and that seemingly all of Washington is on board with such CO2 silliness."
"I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it," Coleman wrote, describing the decades-old theory that increasing the amount of carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere leads to global warming.
"Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a high jacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history," Coleman wrote.

The jobless rate increases...

When I took this job last September, things were looking good for the company. The work load was heavy, and the future for this office looked bright. I was the second, and most experienced, of 3 designers hired. Within the past week, the other two have been dismissed.

Yesterday, the district manager had a meeting with the company president to discusss (among other things, I am certain) the options for this of which is closing the doors and letting the other branches (Charlotte and/or Atlanta) take up the slack. Today, we should get some sort news. We don't know if any or all of us have a job tomorrow. I'm not whining, I know God has His hand in everything.

I just hope and pray that I am able to accept the news, if it's bad for me, in a positive or at least less than sad way....and if it's good for me...I will humbly thank Him.

Depth of Field comparison

"What's the difference between f2.8 and f22?" For those of you who constantly ask me, even after I explain it...try this link. Maybe then it will make sense.

Not being a snob about it, I'm just sayin!
