About the Global Warming Hiatus

Posted Today at 09:32 AM by Knarly Dan

Possible artifacts of data biases in the recent global surface warming hiatus, by Thomas Karl et al, has been getting rave reviews by Alarmists since it was published in early June by Science Magazine.

This alleged hiatus has led to heated debates among scientists trying to construct anthropogenic global warming models, and activists with really important agendas to push...

When a member of a royal family marries, it is usually ideal to find their spouse from a different royal family, or at least another family with a high status. Marrying a commoner was frowned upon. Their low blood would do injustice and lower the quality of the royal blood they were marrying into.

Territorial Jurisdiction Within the Spanish Crown

Posted July 21st, 2015 at 08:36 PM by EmperorTigerstar
