@kingmob The right-wing conspiracy of convenience says that the data has been adjusted to heighten the urgency and panic and perpetuate their scientific fraud. This is a misunderstanding of flux adjustments that used to be made to climate models in the 90's and early in the 00's:

Recent improvements in modelling equations mean that they no longer rely on flux adjustments, but hearing that they had to made adjustments at all sounds sketch.

Because the "hockey-stick" model was an overshoot based on the peak in 1998, deniers tend to either:

a) Argue that the "warming hiatus" between 1998 and 2013 disproves AGW theory. This fallacy disproved itself in the last 2+ years as global surface and ocean temperatures have exceeded the 1998 record year on year.
b) Attempt to discredit scientists arguing that their own funding depends on the alarming data that they publish. Far-right conservatives continue to demonize scientists as a cabal of billionaires working in concert to sway public opinion. If that was true, then the whole hiatus period sure didn't help their cause, but the graph hasn't moved.

This is sound science, and denialism is collapsing under the weight of its own bullshit. At the time of posting, NOAA said that July 2016 also marked the 15th consecutive warmest month on record for the globe. That is the longest stretch of months in a row that a global temperature record has been set in their dataset.

NASA is corrupting the data.

I can see what you're saying. I would love to see an interview with him discussing what his life used to be like and how he made the decision and financial outlay to begin making his videos; however, I think that now that his channel is up and running and if he gets a video out every month that's more than $40,000 income per year and I think that would be enough to support all his expenses. He probably has a camera like a GoPro (~$500), does his own editing on his own computer ($2500?) and would still have money left over for all the rest.

Thanks for the response but it doesn't explain the video equipment, editing, rent, food, social exercises (friends, dating)

Being a bit older I feel time is the greatest resource not money.

I understand he is not going to make a video of his work/life balance. But maybe someone will interview him.

For now I should just enjoy his videos.

Do you mean a discarded vid? You just need to have two power points available, and do a *promote (same applies to vids that have expired and gone to your pqueue, but you also have the chance to send them to beggar's canyon with *beg and one power point).

Some people will also kill a video that doesn't go anywhere and then re-submit it later, which doesn't cost any power points. I don't ever remember doing that myself, although I have occasionally self promoted vids.

Which video did you want to requeue?

How do I resubmit a video to the queue.

I have seen others do is it done?
