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.

For one, he's not explaining to the reader that there's a difference between polar ice cap extent and polar ice cap volume. People monitoring global warming are less concerned with polar ice extent than they are with the total amount of ice. Take a peek at the declining volume in the Arctic: "April 2015 volume was 26% below the maximum April ice volume in 1979 and 13% below the 1979-2014…

Quincy Medical Group launches new smoking cessation course

2 years, 4 months ago by Denise Donley

Starting on January 8, 2013, QMG will offer eight-sessions on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm

At Quincy Medical Group, we understand the positive outcomes of quitting smoking months and even years after a person commits to quitting. We also understand the difficulties faced during the road to becoming free of tobacco. This is why Quincy Medical Group has partnered with the American Lung Association to offer Freedom From Smoking, a tobacco cessation program.

“Smoking and tobacco use is more than a habit, it is an addiction, and one that can be hard to overcome,” said Loretta Musholt RN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Starting on January 8, 2013, Quincy Medical Group will offer the eight-session program on Tuesday evenings from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. This program will provide targeted tobacco cessation classes led by Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitators, along with individual counseling, peer support and tobacco replacement products. Freedom from Smoking is based on a five step platform that prepares individuals to quit and provides resources that are scientifically proven to help them stay tobacco free.

“Freedom From Smoking is a program I am proud to be a part of because it not only gives you the resources to quit, but it also provides the guidance to make sure you beat the habit for life,” said Ashlyn Myers, RD, LDN, Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator.

Research indicates dramatic improvements in the body minutes to years after quitting smoking, including improved heart and lung function, and a substantial decrease in the risk of stroke and heart attack.

In order to ensure individual support and success, the class is limited to ten participants. Please call 217- 222-6550, ext. 3117 for more information or to reserve your spot in Freedom From Smoking.
