Secret DNR report details
warming dangers in SC

COLUMBIA—South Carolina’s wildlife agency gathered a team of scientists more than a year ago to study what could happen if temperatures in the state continue to warm, but have never released their report. A draft of the committee’s findings determined that if temperatures rise in the South by 9 degrees as projected by some over the next 70 years, South Carolina would see more beach flooding and invasion of non-native species such as piranha and Asian swamp eels, according to a draft of the report obtained by The State of Columbia. One scientist involved in the initial work on

I imagine other coastal states have similar "secret" reports.

9 degrees? If the temperature increases 50 degrees 10´s of millions of people all over the planet will die - leading to less pollution, fewer Christians, and proof that Al Gore is not a dingbat. We want more global warming and we want it now.

This is a script from a bad sci-fi movie. Just got mixed up in AP´s in/out box. Move along, just junk science here. I think Jane Fonda is playing the lead role. They needed actors that were near life zombies.

Article does not explain where the 9 degree F, and I am assuming Fahreneit, forecast comes from. Nor does article explain how such an enormous rise happens in one´s life time, 70 years. Since global temps have not risen in 15 years, why would So Carolina be worried?

Appears that this AP article is simply an example of what the AP does best; foster fear to promote a collectivist agenda.

As we all know, every place on earth that is warmer than South Carolina, from Florida to Kuala Lumpur, is a post-apocolyptic valley of death. We know this because the brilliant scientific minds of Democrats inform us that warmth is bad. It´s so bad! So very. very bad!

Democrat "scientists" conduct serious research the same way Democrat "journalists" investigate Obama.

Quite frankly - - I think the whole country could use a lot more Asian swamp eels than just the few it has right now.

The federal government should start a Swamp Eel Seeding Program to make it happen. Those slithery creatures actually do a great deal of good - - much more than any spotted owl ever has.

Asian Swamp Eels? Yes! Bring ´em on!

This is such bad science.

How much has the growth in SC´s population itseldf had on the datea gatehering? What was once open pasture and fields is now concrete and asphalt. It would be interesting to see the correlartion between development and temperature of time at the data collection points.

Goodbye Washington, for that matter. We have no data on Seattle."

The South Carolina shore climate is what it is. There are two "summers" -- the spring and the fall, and then true summer often is what I call the "hell months" where walking on the beach can be intolerable at 80 a.m. The low country has a rice paddy climate and the high humidity makes the summer heat feel even hotter.

On the other hand, I can recall summer days on Isle of Palms when the daytime high was 85 degrees and it was 102 degrees in Washington, D.C.

Lying about science to suit leftist programs is a very bad development. Science has to be validated by objective criteria.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could
