A lot of top scientists are fighting the global warming religion. These ICCC conferences have men with distinguished careers, not thieves like your activist friend, that try to damage any company that does not bow to the global warming campaign. http://climateconferences.heartland.org/fred-gold...

"we've been able to predict over the last couple of decades what will happen with CO2 increasing. Air temps will go up, ice will melt, oceans will heat, land temp readings will increase" True you warmists PREDICTED what would happen ... but the accurate satellite readings show that did NOT happen. No warming for almost two decades, and now they are revising models, and discovering oceans…

" what is your source for this concept that we have exited a natural 30 year cooling period? ' You maintain an amazing ability to ignore the obvious. Those articles is Newspeak and Time addressed the 30 years of abnormally cooler temperatures. Since that we rebounded from about 1980 to 1998, and since then it has been flat, but still warmer than 1979. It is not a "concept" about a…

While you may not trust ice volume levels, which is your prerogative, you must certainly agreethat analyzing only 2D measurements of ice extent is looking at ... just the tip of the iceberg? Actually, while climate is complicated, we've been able to predict over the last couple of decades what will happen with CO2 increasing. Air temps will go up, ice will melt, oceans will heat, land temp readings…

Proposed pension fix won't include cost shift to local school districts

Quinn said one of the most controversial proposals to fix the state's massive pension debt is temporarily off the table

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said Friday one of the most controversial proposals to fix the state's massive pension debt is temporarily off the table.

Quinn and some legislators have supported a so-called cost shift, which would require local school districts to pick up the tab of their own teacher's pensions.

Many Republican legislators have opposed that plan, saying it would force local property taxes to go up.

Teachers' pensions are one of the biggest contributors to the state's $95 billion pension debt.

Steve Brown, a spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan said lawmakers will meet on Saturday to discuss the details of a compromised bill that would not include the cost shift. Brown said the cost shift is a way to end the extraordinary amount of money the state spends on teacher pensions, but, “We need to try to pass what we can pass.”

Brown said bipartisan support is needed to pass the kind of pension reform needed to be effective.
