"recorded history", don't we need to think this goes no further back than either of the two scientists responsible for establishing such measurement standards? So a few hundred years at most. So we're really talking about a mere blip in time. Think I'll roll over and go back to sleep for now. Happy

Why is there still a debate about this
by C1ay / September 1, 2010 3:20 AM PDT
The Earth is warming up and has historically been warmer than it is now. Causes that add to it may be debatable but I don't think it's debatable at all that warming is real. What we need to focus on is any pollution that contributes. Warming is not something we can do anything about or control but we can do something about the pollution we create that contributes.

There is no scientific debate, only political and economic

People want to split hairs about what is "normal" and what is "natural" but when it comes down to pollution controls, everyone wants to avoid the real issue which is controlling pollution may effect people's standard of living.

The real issue is does economics trump the environment. For most people the answer is yes, economics is more important, all the science be damned.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
