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…

30 years of cooling (to 1980 or so) then 30 years warming They use the data on the warming half of one cycle, and call it "long term". They need 50 cycles, not one half of one cycle ... dishonest arses. They know damn well they start at the end of a long cooling period, yet don't account for it, and usual only a straight line linear regression for their argument, which hides the last 18 years…

"The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So these guys are mind readers, not scientists? They can read his intent? Or they are using personal attacks when they don't have facts on their side? I think the U of I boyz are the ones spinning here. Taylor notes this short time range ... readings from 1979 are not "long term" when it…

Al Gore is an idiot. There's no denying that. For the record, I bet Taylor understands the data just fine. That's how he knows where to cherry-pick.

ADM opens new intermodal facility to provide global access

ADM opens new intermodal facility to provide global access

1 year, 8 months ago from pantagraph.com

From from pantagraph.com:

DECATUR — Scott Fredericksen set out four years ago with the goal to help Archer Daniels Midland Co. better connect its Decatur plants with the country’s major railroads to provide enhanced global access for its products.

As the ribbon was cut Thursday to open its intermodal container freight shipping and receiving facility, Fredericksen said ADM has since realized the potential the location has not only to expand its own business but for other companies to take advantage of the opportunities that have been created.

The opening ceremony was held at 3095 E. Parkway Drive amid 250 acres of land at ADM’s vast Decatur processing complex, with rail cars and the nearby Caterpillar Inc. facility as a backdrop.

“Ten years from now, I hope we look back to see this as a turning point that ushered in a new wave of growth,” said Fredericksen, ADM Transportation president. “We look forward to seeing it reach its full potential.”

The project started when ADM bought a Canadian National rail yard with tracks running into its corn processing facility. Norfolk Southern Corp. tracks ran to the soybean processing facilities in ADM’s west plant but, without the rail yard, Fredericksen said ADM had difficulty connecting between both railroads.

ADM now has direct access from the ramp to both railroads along with another of the country’s seven major railroads, CSX. It continues to have indirect access to the remaining four, Fredericksen said.
