Global Warming hoax about to cost you money

Yep, it was inevitable. This is no longer a big joke.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters in Copenhagen Thursday the United States is willing to commit up to $10 billion a year by 2012, and would support a global fund of $100 billion a year to help developing nations deal with climate change, provided nations like China are willing live up to the 'transparency' demanded by the U.S.

So exactly where is Hillary ...

Source For General Mountain Range Facts And Figures?

I am technomoronman, so my web search could not answer my specific question. Before I ask that is there a good source where Mountains, Ranges, etc., are ranked by length, size/acreage, height, etc?

Irish bishop Donal Murray resigns over abuse report

Almost time to go home and crank up the Civ III !

Ottoman fuckers attacked me out of the blue last night, and just as I was in the middle of kicking their asses the goddamned Hittites attacked me too! WTF? Fucking Hittites!

The Hittites have a mutual protection pact with the Sumerians, the second largest power in the world, after me (we are the mighty Aztecs). Shit. So first thing I did was negotiate a mutual protection pact of my own with the Sumerians, and now ...
