Active Tornado Seasons, Big Outbreaks and Stronger Tornadoes Have Been Shown to Be Associated With La Niñas and Natural Variability in the Pacific (24 May 2011)
Very active tornado months in May 2008 and April 2011 have been attributed by some to climate change. Numerous authors have instead found that stronger La Niñas, which are more frequent during cold Pacific (negative Pacific Decadal Oscillation) eras, are characterized by such outbreaks, active months, and strong tornadoes ...

What Does the World Health Organization Study of Global Health Risks Imply about Global Warming's Health Risks? (24 May 2011)
It attributed 154,000-166,000 deaths worldwide and 5.5 million lost Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) in 2000 to global warming. The methodology, however, used to develop these estimates is suspect because ... Read More

Climate Models Need to Render the Past Before Projecting the Future (25 May 2011)
One of the chief criticisms of model projections of future climate in the climate change debate is that the general circulation models (GCMs) are not fully able to replicate past climate reliably due to "well-known" deficiencies in the models. One way that modelers attempt to overcome these is through the use of ensemble techniques, or multiple runs of the model. This provides for a future scenario that can be expressed as a range. But, even these cannot overcome all the shortcomings found in the models ... Read More
Plant Species' Range Shifts in Mountainous Areas (25 May 2011)
Although there is indeed a general tendency for plant species to move upward in elevation at their cold-limited range boundary in response to rising temperatures, some remain stationary and some even move in the opposite direction, while at their heat-limited range boundary, many do not move at all ...

Fluctuations in Air Temperature and Certain Cloud Parameters (25 May 2011)
Apparently, some weather and climatic parameters have not become more variable or extreme with the passage of time, even over the last few decades, when climate alarmists claim the earth warmed at a rate and to a level not experienced over the past millennium or more ...Read More

I have a lot of trouble trying to determine why Brian cannot see that HE has faith in atheistic articles and other tenets of his religion like man-made climate change, and therefore presents no evidence just opinions.
But on the other hand, I must ALWAYS prove my beliefs to him. Seems like a rather unfair way of discussion does it not?

Those who don't believe in God are widely considered to be immoral, wicked and angry. They can't join the Boy Scouts. Atheist soldiers are rated potentially deficient when they do not score as sufficiently "spiritual" in military psychological evaluations. Surveys find that most Americans refuse or are reluctant to marry or vote for nontheists; in other words, nonbelievers are one minority still commonly denied in practical terms the right to assume office despite the constitutional ban on religious tests.

Even tho I love my 2009 B&W, for a person my age it is not the best for longer rides. I rode to visit my buddy Barrie in Cornwall last year. That is when I discovered that for longer rides, at my age of 67, I should upgrade. I did the research before buying the Kymco B&W 250 and discovered it was one of the most reliable, if not THE most reliable scooter in production.
Check the reviews on it here:
This is only 1 place I found fantastic reviews of the 250 B&W. However out of 25 reviews, the total rating is 4.4 out of 5 with 100% of users recommending the scooter!
If you read the reviews you will see that as long ago as 2002 owners usually have to check fluids, keep them topped up, change the oil, once a year or so, change coolant and that is it!
I bet your car needs more care than that! (:-)
