Keep it civil and stay on topic No vulgarity, racial slurs, name-calling or personal attacks. People who harass others or joke about tragedies will be blocked. The primary rule here is pretty simple: Treat others with the same respect you'd want for yourself. Here are some guidelines (see more): It should be noted this is not a comprehensive list. Don't insult one another or the subjects of BDN stories. You may be ticked off at what someone did or said, but you can explain that without resorting to name-calling or obscenity. Remember that young people are on this site too. That nasty line that makes your buddies go "haw, haw"? You're better than that. Comments should be your own work, not copied and pasted from elsewhere, though brief quoted passages to make your point are fine. And please don't use all capital letters. There's no need to shout. Stay focused on the issue in the article. Off-topic posts will be deleted. This isn't a forum to chat about your personal life. Some ideas — the fate of the earth, abortion, gun control, the nature of God — aren't going to be resolved in a reader forum, so no need to get frustrated if others don't see your point of view. State your position once and leave it at that. If you mouse over each comment you will see a "Flag" button. Please use it if you feel comments on the site are out of line.

Psuedo science does not concern me. pbmann In teh 1970’s the climate was showing a cooling trend because the warming effects of CO2 and other greenhouse gases has a delayed effect. The amount of CO2 that has been pumpede into the air has overridden the natural cooling trend that was occuring prior to the 1970’s. But you would know that if you actually had a knowledge of real science regarding the climate. Anonymous Just wondering, have you looked into the science that refutes your belief? Have you seen the infamous “hockey stick” graph now that the correct data has been used? Or do you simply follow blindly to try and appear enlightned and educated?
