Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

Before we rush to judgment, we definitely need to wait until some type of information is presented that can allow me to justify not giving a shit about systemic police brutality of minorities.

Re: “College of Charleston unveils new school logo featuring Randolph Hall under oaks

underwhelming.
Gil is an icon of the design world, but this just doesn't seem to rise to the level of his
previous work. I can only assume the client's input was a detrimental influence.

".... but I can smell bullshit when it comes to the money."

yeah pull Al Gore's finger.
There is a lot of money in being chicken little.

Al Gore won an Academy Award for his 2006 climate documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
Gore then went on to found the cable news network Current TV.
Despite their low ratings, in December 2012 Current TV was purchased by Al Jazeera for $500 million.
Gore's 20% stake in Current TV earned him $100 million in pre-tax profits.
Gore is a board member of Apple Inc, and owns $35 million worth of Apple shares.
He is also the chairman of Generation Investment Management which has $7 billion in assets.

net worth:$300 million

Paul, your cartoon contribution does nothing to help and only seems to deceive.
To what end?

"He might want to wait until the whole story comes out on Michael Brown."

Absolutely right!

Maybe Mr Fish could make better use of his time by going to Chicago and documenting the ongoing tragedy and loss of life there.

Re: “CofC grads start solar-powered golf cart taxi service on Folly

"Five hours should give them a full charge". The article says nothing about the size of either the batteries, the solar array, or the motors.
Without that data there is no way to know the charge time, how long the batteries will last on a charge, or how much the solar cells charge them.

Why not?
And why so few on James Island?

Re: “CofC grads start solar-powered golf cart taxi service on Folly

Five hours should give them a full charge. I wonder how much the solar panels allow them to stretch the charge. 30 miles seems a bit much, but it would depend on how much of the time they're moving.

They didn't invent the wheel, they just redesigned it and you really wouldn't understand how they did it.

Re: “A short history of the Holy City's march toward homegrown beer

"But hailing from a more advance beer state..."
This is indeed a short history. Time always seems to start with as soon as someone moved here. Or maybe it is as far as the writer deems a likely starting point.
There have always been locations where one could get micro brews and really tasty beers as an alternative to the big companies. You just had to search a little harder. I was making my own ales and lagers in 1984...just giving it to friends.
There were plenty of people making their own beverages and relishing good flavor going back into the 70s. ... and of course it surely it goes back to the beginning of the colony as edmunds oast would show.

Not as much as now and nowhere as easy to obtain but certainly here for those
who cared or tried.

Going to Arizona's in the 90s was not gonna get you much except hanging out at a mainstream tourist bar.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

"Any one want to bet that these three "new guys" are in fact just one guy with multiple sock puppets?"

Poptech Andrew can be found on many different forums and websites spreading BS and trying to defend his site without actually providing links to facts. Sorry Andrew, just because you say something, doesn't make it an actual proper rebuttal to criticism. If one were to actually browse these papers (I have hit a couple dozen), they would find many issues. I spoke too soon about peer review. Sure, many of these articles are peer reviewed. And many are published. But they have been published in non-scientific journals. Here is a good one: Atmospheric Circulations Do Not Explain the Temperature-Industrialization Correlation
Written, not by a scientist, but by an economist. Published, not in a science journal, but in a new statistical and political journal. You call that a legit peer review scientific study? Come on now. This is a real scientific study from one of the most legit science journals out there: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v453/…
And here is an even bigger issue, IMO: http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v498/…
Then there is old Sherwood B. Idso, who has authored many papers on that list. A guy that openly admits to accepting funding from ExxonMobil. http://www.co2science.org/about/position/f…
Honestly, I would spend more time digging in to the other authors and studies, but it won't change the minds of the deniers. I will be 100% honest when I say we don't know everything going on with the climate, nor are we 100% sure human CO2 emissions are the cause. However, the general consensus among well known independent scientists is enough for us to be somewhat concerned with the future.


"Adding correction upon correction to raw data when the corrections are always made in only one direction become highly suspect with respect to their legitimacy."

You don't science much, do you?


"You have proven my point again. Thanks."

nofaith, the religion of climate change denial runs far deeper than those of us that follow the massive pile of data that has lead to the overall consensus in the scientific community. It is interesting that you look at it from the side of denial, just because that is what your political party sells you. Even the link you provided above comes from someone well known to align with the Heritage Foundation. I am a born skeptic, but I can smell bullshit when it comes to the money.

I believe the reason they're protesting there is to be sure the entire story comes out.
