If everybody understood some statistics they'd never gamble in a casino. Here's a couple of my favorites.... How many people need to be in a room until you have at least a 50-50 change that two will have the same birthday? The answer is 23....completely non-intuitive.

I'm curious what the "prior misconduct" is that could scare Denny enough to agree to fork over more than $3 million. Really does go to show that sleazebaggery in politics knows no bounds, party or otherwise.

Hmmm...I re-read his article after having done some research. He didn't say that global warming didn't cause ice retreat. He said ice retreat does not prove a global warming crisis.

The data he shows is misleading...but that's NASA's fault for publishing…

Illinois organic farm sales more than triple

1 year ago wrex.com

Number of organic farms dropped over the same time period

From wrex.com:

Statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture show sales from organic farms in Illinois more than tripled over a five-year period.

Annual sales from organic Illinois farms rose to $26,2 million in 2012, up from just $8.3 million in 2007. The data shows sales growth occurred despite a drop in the overall number of farms in Illinois during that same period. The figures only include farms that had at least $5,000 in annual sales selling USDA-certified organic products.

Kendra Schilling, manager of the Illinois Products Farmers' Market at the state fairgrounds, said the data doesn't include numbers from smaller growers who haven't gone through the process to be certified.

The state's overall crop sales were $14.1 billion in 2012. Livestock sales hit about $3 billion that year.
