What is to be said, Obama is a narcissistic egomaniac who does everything to satisfy his political agenda. Because he declared the Afghan war over it's automatically over, while we still have troops in harms way and dying. The free world, which includes America, are fighting a worldwide war on terrorism and this egotist says it's over. I can hardly wait, January 2017, the end of the Obama…

Funny that you admit that satelite data is much more accurate in this instance and yet when it comes to temperature the satelite data showing the temps are NOT the hottest on record are ignored in favor of the surface temps which the scientists "adjust". Talk about cherry picking the data to fit the argument.

Since ice volume is a calculated value of a model and absolutely impossible to ever verify (with today's technology) you will NEVER convince me to trust an answer from it. With that being said their model looks very much like the real data. Decline which might be recovering now (only time will tell). Of continuing interest is the hiatus since 2002 of global temps which IMHO pretty much disproves…

1979 is selected in these types of charts because that's when we first had a satellite in orbit that could provide us with much more accurate data. If you want to get out the chart showing pre-1979 data, you'd be looking at much less accurate data derived from things like navigational ice charts from shipping vessels, tree rings and ice core analysis... You're not going to like the scientists…

GOP gubernatorial candidates make final push

Two of the four Republicans running for Illinois governor made Sunday stops in Quincy in a final push to bolster votes before Tuesday’s primary.

Bruce Rauner, considered the front-runner in many polls, stopped in at Kelly’s Tavern, 2902 Broadway, to press the flesh with patrons who had either finished the morning’s Kelly’s Fun Run or were celebrating St. Patrick’s Eve…or both.

Rauner told reporters before he entered the pub that his message was resonating.

“We’ll term-limit ourselves at 8 years because that’s what the voters want,” Rauner said. “Quincy is suffering from the bad economic policies of Pat Quinn. He’s driven up taxes and spending. He’s hurting schools and the economy.”

Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale and his running mate, State Rep. Jil Tracy of Quincy, flew into Quincy Regional Airport as part of a statewide fly-around. They had former Governor Jim Edgar in tow.

Edgar had endorsed Dillard, who served as the former governor’s chief of staff.

“(Dillard) has the ability to work across party lines...with Democrats," Edgar said. "The Legislature is going to be controlled by Democrats for many decades. We need someone to work with Democrats, not go to war with them."

Dillard said all the polls show he is surging.

"I'm the only candidate who can beat Pat Quinn," Dillard said. "The rest of these folks can't. He's not a push over. I'm the best to govern when I get there and...the Western Illnois region will be in the forefront and not Forgottonia."
