Maybe my comment on Global warming was misunderstood what we are experiencing is part of a normal cycle, in my opinion the earth is still trying to establish equilibrium OR is responding to other major events that have disrupted the balance, like volcanic eruptions. The idea that we caused it or we can stop or reverse it is absurd. Claims made by global warming proponents are exaggerated and papers done years ago proposed we would be a lot warmer now than we actually are. The way in which the work was presented and the lack of openness about how the conclusions were made makes me skeptical and the lack of the correlation of their projections to what actually happened over the last 20 years would indicate further discredits the work in my opinion. Projections they made 20 years ago have not occurred, they were wrong.
If global warming projections were indeed accurate and methods and models used to develop these conclusions was shared AND actual weather occurrences were plugged into the model as they occurred and the projections updated as actual data could displace projected data it might lend it more credibility. The problem is if they do that (apply the scientific method and use normal statistical analysis) their hypothesis or conclusions would not be proven right. The model is using various greenhouse gas concentrations to project an increased warming trend. Some of the data I have seen indicates that increasing greenhouse gas levels are a RESULT of warmer temperatures not a CAUSE.
About the break comments, I remember specific break requirements listed on our poster by the time clock when I worked in Tennessee, I assumed they were federal requirements after further research it was a Tennessee law, not federal. My research indicates Wisconsin has no such law. Who would of thought a Southern Right-to-Work state affords their workers a greater degree of protection and benefits than a "progressive" state like Wisconsin?
