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 pictures above show what happened when TWW ordered some cranberry juice from Amazon for Mrs. TWW. The bottles either had been tampered with or the factory had problems. He took the pictures and tried to put a nasty product review on Amazon.com but could not get these pictures to upload. He then called a Amazon customer service person who asked him what the problem was and gave the usual scripted "we are sorry" spiel. Then she asked how everything else was going and TWW said it was snowing again. The woman said she was in Jamaca and it was nice and warm down there and she would send up some sunshine. She also put in a replacement order (for free) and the new juice is on the way. TWW is still waiting for the juice and the sunshine (he is sure the juice will come but not so sure about the sunshine).
That was written on Tuesday. On Thursday it was 50 degrees F on the official Garbin Moraine porch thermometer and sunny.

|Another example of albedo (see below)|

|Dumping ashes makes snow melt faster.|
Now if you have wasted your time reading this far:
"Albedo (//), or reflection coefficient, derived from Latin albedo "whiteness" (or reflected sunlight) in turn from albus "white," is the diffuse reflectivity or reflecting power of a surface. It is the ratio of reflected radiation from the surface to incident radiation upon it. Its dimensionless nature lets it be expressed as a percentage and is measured on a scale from zero for no reflection of a perfectly black surface to 1 for perfect reflection of a white surface." source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albedo
What this means is all the coniferous trees TWW and friends planted are warming the planet so never trust a tree hugger.

Senate holds global warming all-nighter: Why 4 Dems will be no-shows
Senate Democrats will talk about the importance of addressing global warming until 9 a.m. Tuesday. But the issue is fraught with difficulties for four Democrats who won't appear."

Here is what the ADL said about him: "University of Alabama-Huntsville Professor Roy Spencer’s analogy of proponents of global warming to Nazis is outrageous and deeply offensive. This analogy is just the latest example of a troubling epidemic of comparisons to Hitler and the Holocaust. It has become too common to use comparisons to the Holocaust and Nazi imagery to attack people with opposing views, whether the issue is global warming, immigration or stem-cell research."
And it gets even more interesting. Here is part of a review by Thomas Sowell of the book Who Really Cares by Arthur C. Brookes:
"What is the reason why some people are liberals and others are conservatives, if it is not that liberals are more compassionate?
