The term lithograph comes from the Greek words lithos, meaning “stone” and graphein, meaning “to write”. Lithography is a printing process that allows an original piece of art work to be reproduced. The basic method is based on water and oil repelling each other. An image is drawn directly onto a stone tablet (usually limestone) using a greasy crayon or pencil and the stone is then covered with water. When the ink is applied to the stone, the ink is attracted to the greasy image and repelled by the water.
The weather. Green cars boost demand for coal-fired power! So where did you think the electric power came from? The rise and fall of the hockey stick.

The rationality of Islamophobia. Question. Why are they happy in so many countries like Australia and W Europe that are not Islamic (yet)?

Insights from Popper on the climate debate. Some loose talk about Popper and others without much to show from a lot of comments.
