Many deserve thanks for Nativity scene
May I use this space to say, “Thank you” to all of the wonderful people who gave so generously to the Nativity scene fund. Some gave monetarily and were recognized in the paper, but there were others that worked to make the nativity a reality.
To start with, thank you to Peggy Renfro, Laura Battles and the rest of the chamber staff for sending letters, ordering the Nativity, collecting the donations and much more. Thank you to the Jacksonville Fire Department for putting the Nativity up and for decorating the whole park. It was so beautiful. And thank you to Casey beach who built the stable. he did such a great job.
I feel truly blessed to live in a town where everyone pitches in and helps when there is a need. I am proud to call Jacksonville my home town.
Thank you again and may God richly bless you all.
No consensus on global warming
We are constantly being told by the media there is a consensus among scientists that global warming is being caused by humans, that polar bears will soon be extinct because icebergs in Antarctica are melting.
Why are we not being told that in April, 2006 60 scientists sent a letter to the Canadian Prime Minister asking the government to revisit its position on global warming because they found that computer models of the weather aren’t accurate and Kyoto was completely based on computer models?
Why are we not being told that Sam Solanki of the Max Planck Institute for the Solar System and Khabibullo Abdusamatov of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ are reporting the earth will have a period of global cooling by 2050?
Why are we not being told there was a Medievel Warm Period from 900 AD to 1300 AD when scientists believe the earth was warmer than today – so warm the Vikings grew crops in Greenland?
Why are we not being told that, according to Science magazine, Greenland was as warm from 1920-1930 as it was from 1995-2005 and Biologist Dr. Mitchell Taylor from the Arctic government of Nunavut says “Of the 13 populations of polar bear in Canada, 11 are stable or increasing in number ... they are not going extinct?”
Why aren’t we being told about scientists like MIT’s Richard Lindzen, former Colorado State Climatologist Patrick Michaels, Colorado State University’s William Gray, atmospheric physicist S. Fred Singer, Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Oregon State climatologist George Taylor and astrophysicist Sallie Baliunas who do not believe human activity is causing global warming?
Doesn’t sound like a consensus to me! Just saying it doesn’t make it true.
