There will be no Aardvark update today as I am shifting servers. This may also result in some DNS issues for the usual period but hopefully all will be well within 24 hours or so.
Stay tuned... new server means that the forums will be back -- as well as other new features.
Thanks for your patience.
It's widely accepted that the earth's climate is changing, and not for the better.
Once in a century weather events are happening every decade and once in a decade events seem to happen every year or two. Something is happening -- all we need is consensus on what's causing it and how we can address the issue before it's too late.
Initially, scientists told us there was this "greenhouse effect" taking place. This effect, we were warned, was causing "global warming".
When symptoms of this global warming, such as displaced polar vortices appeared to contradict the "warming" claims, governments and scientists scrambled to rename this greenhouse-gas induced global warming and the name they came up with was "Climate Change".
Ah yes, that'll do nicely -- because nobody can dispute the fact that our climate is indeed changing.
The second column of your daily dose (this one) is, as you have probably noticed, not being updated every day.This, of course, is because I'm incredibly busy with other projects and issues at the moment so I'm inviting readers to submit their own contributions for publication here.
If you've got something you want to write about then drop me a line and if it sounds like a good fit, I'll throw it up here so everyone can benefit from your insight, opinion or information.
Don't hesitate, go for it!
Sorry, the headlines haven't been updated today

Remember, this is purely a gift, you'll get nothing other than a warm fuzzy feeling in return.
