Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Don't worry Myth a gov bill will force the people to pay for your subscription in the near future so everyone has access to news and forums .....but in your case there is no near future AGW is destroying the world

My parents taught me to respect and like to read and be informed. Even if sometimes it might not be too interesting. We subscribe to the local paper, and buy one daily wherever we travel. I wish you good luck, myth.

Where is everyone? I am glad to be a subscriber.

Here's how I see it: We posters drive traffic to this site, and it costs the N&S very little, since we provide the content for free.

Our ideas and arguments improve this paper. We commenters already provide value. We shouldn't pay for providing value.

At one time, the N&S was pretty good, but, in my opinion, they've relaxed their standards. These forums are the most interesting aspect of the paper to me, but I probably won't decide to pay for them.

I probably won't pay for the N&S. I already pay for three daily papers. The N&S handles local issues adequately. My favorite paper is the Dominion-Post. It's well worth paying for. For another great WV paper, try the Gazette/Daily Mail.

mythravere...i think that would constitute a consensus. i often find myself in a consensus of one...without the bucket.

...and that's for the PNS, the Times is less expensive.

$205.50 is for one year of home delivery of the print edition. I think the digital-only subscription rates start at $17 per month.

hi there mythravere. it is odd that over at the times site, some have posted only to have been deleted while showing a recent post. there might be a correlation between signing out and being locked out. i am not quite sure about that though. it also might possibly be a slow purge of non-subscribers.

Geezer...that seems pretty high. what services do you get from suddenlink? for about $115.00 a month we get one land line, high speed internet and about 1000 cable channels. last night someone posted that the online subscription for the Times would be about $150.00 annually. i am not certain if the News and Sentinel would be much more than that.

My suddenlink bill is $177 per month (!)

Posted 189 days ago.

Annual subscription is $205.50, up from a very recent $180.

I was already a paid subscriber and was able to immediately log in and read/participate as normal. I have been a subscriber for 30+ year and urge everyone to support their local newspaper.

slight correction...i have since been able to read comments and post comments to the news articles. i stand self-corrected.

well gents, a quick question for y'all. of those have posted so far..how many of you have signed up for a subscription? i have noticed that on the Times website i have been able to read and post only in the forum section. the articles prior to today do not show any comments posted. perhaps we are stuck in some artificial realm of digital existence in which we can read each others posts but are oblivious to the posts of the digital subscribers.

Beautiful day.
