Dr. David Pierce, climatologist from the climate research division of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, spoke recently as part of the La Jolla Community Center's Distinguished Speaker Series. Pierce discussed the importance of reviewing all phenomena and examining all evidence before attributing the warming of the planet to either natural or human causes. He pointed out that the warming in recent decades is due to human-emitted greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. He added that understanding recent temperature changes means examining all possible causes—from the natural and human, to greenhouse gases, solar and volcanic activity—in explaining observations such as decreasing snowpack, rising land and ocean temperatures, etc. 

The next Distinguished Speaker Series featuring doctors Scott Lipmann and Wael Al-Delaimy will be held Nov. 12. They will be discussing cancer prevention and treatment. For further information or to make a reservation for the free event, visit or call 858-459-0831.

"Dr." David Pierce, huh? Doctor of what, Pseudo-Science?

He promotes the Global! Warming! Catastrophe! claims, yet provides zero evidence that the Earth's climate is outside the natural variability of the Holocene.

My question to the True Believers in the Church of Global Warming: Real scientists follow the Scientific Method, IPCC "climate scientists" REFUSE to do so. Why should we believe anything "climate scientists" like David Pierce says, while he flys in private jets and first class airline seats to five-star resorts for "Conferences of the Parties" while demanding the rest of us live like 12-century peasants?

Cure for HSV with doctor Ahmed Herbal roots

Most fake doctors on the internet will claim they have cure for Herpes virus, when you contact them they will end up demanding money from you. I was once a victim of such scam, because I was really curious of finding the cure to my Herpes Virus. A good friend of mine introduced me to a doctor named Ahmed Usman that the doctor cured him from diabetes, at first I refused to contact the doctor because of my past experience. Later that they when surfing the internet I came across a testimony of a young lady who was cured from HSV-1 with the-same doctor Ahmed, so I decided to give the doctor a try, I contacted him and after much deliberation he prepared the Herbal medicine which I paid for and he sent it to me and after receiving it he prescribed the usage for 21 days that I will be cured. Truly after using the Herbal medicine for 21 days I discovered that there was improvement on my health and the outbreaks I used to have were gone I decided to go for another test and my result was negative the doctors were surprised there was no trace of the virus on my blood, you too can be cured with this doctor, email him on; text/Call 2348064460510  He has cure for Diabetes, Cancer and Liver diseases.
