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.

My suddenlink bill is $177 per month (!)

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

I would read maybe 4 articles max a day if that many.

The deal is similar to suddenlink in that I would be paying for a load of stuff that doesn't interest me. I am on the verge of getting rid of suddenlink because rarely do I find anything to watch and the channels I like are turning into steaming piles of reality crap. So the content being delivered to my door isn't worth the price I am being asked to pay for it. The paper is the same for me.

Im not going to pony up any money for a subscription because of two things.

First and foremost and correct me if I am wrong but nowhere does it state how much a subscription is. My reason being the same thing I do when someone is selling something and doesn't bother to price it or in the case of antique dealers...they cover the tag up. If I have to ask then I aint buying.

The second reason is real simple. Simply not enough content to warrant spending money on.

If they had a large variety of columns available then maybe. Something like exploring the history of the area in a weekly article. That'd be cool and would make me consider getting a subscription.

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.

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.

HA! A false beauty. A teasing beauty. A beauty as tentative as an image seen in a mirage.

For as soon as one walks forth out of one's abode....cold!

The cold ruins it for me. Sick sick sick of this cold weather.

I've got to see a bit of the new Cosmos and it looks very good. Saw a bit of the Titan episode and the very idea of life on that strange moon is awesome.

Cosmos is such a good show. The new and the old one. So far I am intensely enjoying this new one.

LOL! Tiredofit what I said about resource depletion has nothing to do with climate change. Its the simple fact the key resources for energy and other essential materials is finite on this planet.

With a population growing ever faster this world is setting itself up for a crunch.

I mean look at rare earth metals. China has large part of the worlds supply of that stuff. Which they are reducing exports of.

It is in our best interests to make sure we can supply ourselves with the resources we need. I don't see gas or oil drilling stopping until its totally gone. We use it to make so much stuff.

Good thing a lot people and industry dont think like you and are looking at and developing alternatives to key resources.

Trying to bring the climate change angle in on what I said is just you bringing your politics in on this topic. I mean a farmer knows he can only grow so much of a crop in field and graze so many cattle in a pasture. What happens when you exceed those limits.

Tiredofit must have missed the little news blurb out this past week about resource depletion.

Basically what it boils down to is that if we dont temper our consumption of resources by consuming less or finding alternative means in producing what we need. If we don't do that then we are in some trouble.

We can do it or nature will.

Good stuff, Tiredofit. Thanks.

Oh and on the subject of All Access.

If I was inclined to pay for it I would demand something be done about people who post a near endless amount of links to other websites....with rarely a word typed by themselves.

In fact if I was a paying customer I would DEMAND that be stopped.

LOL! Tiredofit it makes no sense for you to declare that anyone is losing anything.

You're kinda sorta compromised on this issue.

Your disagreement with it isn't based on the facts. Its based on who is politically backing the issue.

So go on back up to Marietta and agree with your fellow yes men.

When you don't know what you are talking about, just blame climate change, Fox News and Rush, right, myth and oneill?

Don't those idiots know that climate change made that airplane disappear? And climate change would be stopped if it were not for Fox. Fox is responsible for so few tornadoes and very few hurricanes too. Fox Power. Whatever the weather, they did it.

And that is a consensus of my peers.
