Cheers, Yooper. Been taking a scythe to a lot of the garbage clogging up the threads. This will no doubt come in very handy.

Years of working for the US Department of Defense taught me this one:

"Measure with a micrometer, mark with chalk, cut with an axe."

But scythes do nicely.

All pages are live at SkS; many may be currently inactive, however.  Posting a question or comment on any will not be missed as regulars here follow the Recent Comments threads, which allows them to see every new comment that gets posted here.

Comments primarily dealing with ideologies are frowned upon here.  SkS is on online climate science Forum in which participants can freely discuss the science of climate change and the myths promulgated by those seeking to dissemble.  All science is presented in context with links to primary sources so that the active, engaging mind can review any claims made.

can I suggest not using the bold tags for the links, it may just be me, but it seems to detract from the otherwise measured tone of the wording, which might be counter-productive.  Otherwise I think it is a very useful addition to the boilerplate collection!
