TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

The 'team' is short for the hockey team (remember the hockey stick?) and their temperature work that claims global warming is all caused by CO2. Part of the post is below. Your tax dollars are funding this research just like BIG OIL pays for the people who are skeptics.
"Just when you think the bottom of the Hockey Stick rabbit hole has been reached, Steve McIntyre finds yet more evidence of misconduct by the Team.

The slogan "no taxation without representation" needs revamping for the 21st century. We live in a state with an extremist governor unwilling to raise taxes so public employees can receive their just compensation. Fair disclosure makes me say before retiring and moving here I used to work in the public sector in Minnesota. But first, back in Minnesota we lived on homesteaded property since in Minnestoa there is a law giving your primary residence a tax break. And second when I came up to hunt or fish it meant a nonresident license.
While we cannot to cut property taxes there is a way to solve part of the current mess in Madison by combining the two concepts above. We need a Property Owner's License (POL) where people need a license to own property and nonresidents pay nonresident fees and homesteaded propety owners pay $0.00 (at least initially). The POL fee would just need to be another line on a person's property. It is a license fee not a tax.
Just like in Minnesota the nonresident concept needs to expand to include the rich Wisconsin people who own lake castles up north in addition to homesteaded primary residences in the city.
This idea also cures the 'tax bird' problem where rich people pretend to live in other states with no income tax but spend as much of the year up here as possible and only leave in the winter when nobody wants to be here anyway.
Hi there, I found your blog via Google while searching for first aid for a heart attack and your post looks very interesting for me.

"Only the day before, Mrs. Clinton — along with her boss, President Obama— was a skeptic on whether the United States should take military action in Libya. But that night, with Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s forces turning back the rebellion that threatened his rule, Mrs. Clinton changed course"

TWW promises to put the work on the web second site on hold and come back to serving his 4.5 loyal viewers (the change from 3.5 is HFEC now has two imaginary playmates who also comment on this blog at times and they count as .5 viewers each)
