It was your U of I boyz quote that started the "name calling", so by your "rules", you lost long ago. "The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So they say he's intentionally lying, but he actually clearly stated his points. It is the lack of accounting for the 30 years of cooling prior to the 1979 data that is dishonest. Here is…

I think you're right, and my description was an over simplified description of why they come up with different values: http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/faq/ Area measurements treat the data cells differently than extent measurements treat the data cells. If it's 15% ice, the cell does not count toward extent, but Area…

I thought the extent measurements were pixelated results with at least 10% ice coverage so includes holes. That's my understanding of it from what I read. Measuring different things would make sense. But the difference doesn't help bolster the case that "all the science agrees" when it obviously doesn't.

But when you find that their logic and science is wrong, and they are intentionally misleading the public----and you learn they are paid $80,000 to do so by an organization highly dependent on funding from the fossil fuel industry, it should infuriate the average person. In the same way that they trashed medical science and trotted out a bunch of pseudoscience to protect big tobacco (donors). That…

McDonough County Grain Bin Fire now out

1 year ago by Scott Hardy

Had been burning since Monday

The Illinois State Police say that the grain bin fire near Adair, Illinois in eastern McDonough County has been put out, and U.S. Route 136 is now open for normal traffic.

The road had been closed since Monday, with traffic rerouted due to the potential hazard of a grain dust explosion.

No evacuation order had been issued for the town of Adair. But the Illinois State Police did ask several rural residents to evacuate their homes.

The fire started Monday afternoon at the bin, located at the junction of Illinois Routes 136 and Route 41.

The facility is owned by Western Grain Marketing. It can hold up to 1.5 million bushels of corn. Fire officials weren't sure how much corn was in the bin, but crews removed grain from the bin, so that firefighters from seven area departments, including New Salem, Bushnell, Emmet-Chalmers, Colchester, Industry, Table Grove and Macomb Fire Protection Districts could put out that fire. Crews transported water from multiple townships and dumped it into holding tanks for the pump trucks to extinguish the blaze.
