Team USA go crazy for cupping!
There is no healing, there are no meridians, or energy flow, just quackery.
Rio seems to be drawing out the quackery:
Rio, Brazil has Naturopaths, Homeopaths, acupuncturists, and the like too!
Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming fails unless data is limited to the period 1850 to present
The Sinkhole – Our Descent into the Next Ice Age
If the data set is extended to the entire Holocene, the data inverts, and there is no evidence that the earth is in a period of alarming warming. To the contrary, the warming appears to be nothing more than a rebound from the third/fourth coldest period during the Holocene.
Rebuttal to the Skeptical Science “Crux of a Core”
The data below is from: Comparing the Kobashi and Alley Central Greenland Temperature Reconstructions
The data is the last 4,000 years temperature, Central Greenland, and the red at the end is with the HadCRUT modern thermometer data appended. The last 4,000 years the Earth has been cooling from the higher temperatures between 8,000 years, and 4,000 before the year 2,000. Also, remember that the last 15 years there has been no warming in the thermometer, or satellite temperature record.
This record shows the profound cooling which has occurred over the past 3,400 years. This cooling resulted in two of the four cold periods during the Holocene, and the modern cooling period, which began in 1,000 and ran to 100 years ago, was the longest by a great margin.
For greater clarity I have included the above graph extending back about 10,000 years. Note, the 8,200 event was the coldest in the Holocene, but the little Ice Age was not much warmer, and it was far longer in duration.
Marcott et al claim of ‘unprecedented’ warming compared to GISP ice core data
This graph simply gives a longer time line to gain a bit more perspective at the expense of detail.
The day before yesterday: when abrupt climate change came to the Chesapeake Bay | NOAA Climate.gov
The game played by the CAGW fear mongers is to truncate the data set to only include the period 1850 to present, and then scream, and rant as if this is an indicator of catastrophe. It is not, it is little more than a rewarming towards the Holocene mean.
Attorney's General thwart law to continue in Star Chamber: Oregon is ignominiously among the miscreants
Leaked ‘Secrecy Pact’ document shows #ExxonKnew Attorneys General colluded to obstruct FOIA requests
They colluded to keep us from knowing what they were doing, so they could act to restrict our rights. This is the real meaning of Star Chamber, a secret legal administrative cabal which slowly eliminates Human Rights.
Students Learn Climate Change Advocacy, Not Climate Science - The John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy
It is not advocacy, but religion.
It is an unreformed religion, one which will be extremely dangerous, and deadly if allowed to flourish. Just as Soviet Socialism, Maoist Socialism, and Naziism were deadly secular religions.

The red hands of Greenpeace: Mastio and Mahmood
If only there were something like an international criminal court to go after human rights abusers, and accomplices to genocide, and murder. Oh wait, the wife just walked by, and gave me the roll eyes. There is an International Criminal Court, and its jurisdiction is human rights, genocide, murder and the like. Who knew?!
