NCCoastalfed Feb 25, 5:36pm via Safari on iOS Oooooh: a secret SC sea level rise report #cfed islandpacket.com/2013/02/24/239…
I'm surprised somebody hasn't passed a law about such reckless scientific behavior...oh, that's right. We did it here in NC. Back to the SC report:
A team of state scientists has outlined serious concerns about the damage South Carolina will suffer from climate change -- threats that include invading eels, dying salt marshes, flooded homes and increased diseases in the state's wildlife.
But few people have seen the team's study. The findings are outlined in a report on global warming that has been kept secret by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources for more than a year because agency officials say their "priorities have changed."
Research referenced in the 102-page report includes studies from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Among those serving on the 18-member DNR study group were seven PhDs, a climatologist and at least five other agency biologists.
"Scientists in all divisions of the DNR are concerned over the potential impacts of climate change on natural resources,'' the draft report says."DNR recognizes climate change as a real phenomenon, grounded in numerous scientific studies, and DNR recognizes that thoughtful and careful planning is needed in order to protect the natural resources of the Palmetto State and to benefit its citizens in the future."
I wouldn't hold your breath.

Just a note to the Cardinals that run UNC: you need to straighten this situation out tout-fucking-suite, or you'll be looking back at that African Studies thing with nostalgic fondness of the good old days when your reputation was only marginally compromised. This ain't the fucking Helmund Province. We don't punish sexual assault victims and boot female students out of school for speaking out of turn.

Yeah, I'm sure you and your friends will stand up for the rights of African Americans to own firearms, if they can somehow survive poverty, discrimination, racial-profiling by police, and a whole laundry list of other barriers people like you think no longer exist. And here's a little background on one of those hashtags:
Let’s start with a brief history. According to its creator, Todd Kincannon, the original purpose of tgdn was to protect twitter accounts owned by conservatives against alleged organized spam blocking by liberals. Upon establishing their network, they decided to do the very thing they accuse liberals of doing.
The tgdn’s favorite targets seem to be people who subscribe to views on the second amendment saner than those expressed by Wayne Lapierre. It’s as if the constitution begins and ends with their interpretation of the second Amendment, which is to the right of such notable liberals as Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Though as we can see, any liberal, especially with small follower counts is fair game.
In other words, if this group of neanderthals decides nthey don't like what you're Tweeting, they can gang up on you and get you blocked. Not just from a specific feed, but Twitter itself.
On that ominous note, we'll take a bite of the Onion:
