Welcome...

Hello, 81.106.237.60, and welcome to Wikipedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like this place and decide to stay. Here are some pages that you might find helpful:

I recommend that you get a username by clicking sign up. You don't have to log in to read or edit articles on Wikipedia, but creating an account is quick, free and non-intrusive, requires no personal information, and has many benefits. As a registered user, you gain the use of an appropriate username of your choice, a personal watchlist to which you can add articles that interest you, the ability to start new pages, and much more. Also, your IP address, 81.106.237.60, will no longer be visible to other users.

Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically produce your username and the date. If you need help, check out Wikipedia:Questions, ask me on my talk page, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.  Again, welcome! CWC 21:18, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Heartland Institute vs Peter Gleick[edit]

In your first 10 edits here, you've jumped in the deep end of the swimming pool (more like a swamp, in some ways) of Wikipedia's rules. (To stretch this analogy, the 'welcome package' I've left you (see above) is a flotation vest, but it will take several days reading to understand how to use it.)

One of the things I really like about Wikipedia is that we try to avoid harming the reputations of living people, by having rules about what can be said about them: only well-sourced claims from organizations and people that do fact-checking. These rules often get broken, but many of us do our best to enforce them. For the Peter Gleick article, this means being very careful about what we let in their, even if some of us are naturally more sympathetic to the Heartland Institute than to Gleick. An encyclopedia needs to wait for facts to emerge, not try to lead the discussion. Since lengthy legal proceedings may be required to expose some of the facts in this case, we might have to wait years. (Similarly, the far more important questions about global warming will take at least a decade to resolve, IMO.)

I hope this helps -- CWC 21:18, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

CO2[edit]

The link isn't in the See also (Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere) - because it is linked within the article text. As per WP:MoS.

When you comment on talk-pages, please step down from the soapbox, and comment in a neutral way, preferrably by citing reliable sources that support your assertions. And wikipedia does require us to be civil, not presume bad about fellow editors or cast aspersions at people - all of which your postings have done on Talk:Global warming. --Kim D.
