I'd like to start a new project, Level 2, and I'm seeking approval, as well as members to join the team. The project is about Global Warming.

Project Details:

Accepted is the fact that the Earth is a self-regulating biosphere, held in a delicate balance that supports a narrow range of life. Accepted is the fact that there have been several extinction events recorded in the geological record, and several Ice Ages reasonably defined. Accepted is that we are currently in an "Inter-glacial" period.

This Project will be detailing the plausibility of global warming, it's effects on the environment, evidence that the Arctic Ice Sheet is receding, strange recent weather patterns, and will incorporate any other aspects that the team deems relevant. The ultimate goal of this Project will culminate in the definition of what Global Warming, if occurring, has on the continued survivability of our species on this planet.

I am seeking 4 team members. Since this is a level 2 Project, plenty of time is given for research, and 5 posts will be required. I expect all team members to post in a timely manner. If you are not serious about the topic of global warming, please refrain from asking to join.

Any potential members can u2u or post here.

Project officially submitted, awaiting approval.

Is the Local Interstellar Cloud affecting us in any way? Research Update

The team has been formed through U2U, participants thus far are MamaJ, Jim Oberg, myself and we are just waiting for one more participant to get his scholar status approval to launch.

In an unexpected turn of events, we will be looking for a fourth participant, someone well versed in astronomy, who will look into facts and data, to either prove or disprove that the local interstellar cloud is affecting our solar system, its planets, our sun and our own planet in any way.

Anyone having an interest for such, please send me a pm so we can discuss it.

Thank you.

Certainly approved.

If anyone wants to participate in a project and wants to post in this thread but can't, send me a PM and we'll look into getting you scholar status.

Just a heads up, I see some members are using quote tags instead of external quote tags, when sourcing data from the web.

these quote tags are for quoting something or someone on ATS

the ex tags are for quoting info/data that is not on ATS

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to the team.

I'm still recruiting, and have several people interested, but the PRIMARY concern is the time commitment. What's important to realize is that it's not an immediate obligation you are committing to, but rather a CASUAL, yet thorough, obligation.

Yes, it does take time to research a topic.

That's the whole point of this forum. It should be the de-facto standard of EVERY thread on ATS, and it's why we are here, trying to rejuvenate this particular forum, with members who are able to spare a bit of their time, here and there, researching, and writing posts that are on-topic, when they have free time.

There's no pressure. There's no overseer hovering over your shoulder, saying post, post, post, no, not at all. This forum is about being interested in a topic, taking the time to research it, and posting rock solid information on topic.

Honestly, it's refreshing to be here. It's knowing that the annoying one-liners don't exist here, and we can read a research topic, and learn factual information that exposes the reality of a topic. It's the premise ATS was founded upon, and one that within this forum, is revered.

It's also about teamwork, and working together with others. That's a rare concept in this modern age, where everyone has their own opinion, and won't divert to other possibilities. Teamwork is something often unheard of, yet is a cherished aspect of human nature. We like to interact with others, yet are often set at odds because of differences. Teamwork nullifies the trivial disagreements, and as a unit, once formed, is a formidable force in fleshing out factual information on literally ANY topic.

Yes, research isn't for everyone. It's only for a few, those who really care, who take the TIME to use their computers to google information. Being fair, anyone can google, true. To take a topic, and use their skills to present a solid argument, well, those are in a class of their own. Those are the Scholars of ATS.

I personally consider the research forum to be the apex of ATS and wish to thank Druid for the invitation to join him on this mission.

I am very much looking forward to working with Druid, vkey08, 74Templar and sheepslayer247 on the subject of Global Warming - an amazing collection of minds which is guaranteed success in this endeavour.

Although I am at work (until the 28th) I will be making a concerted effort over the coming days to study and analyse this phenomena in greater detail and will u2u each of you shortly to discuss the aspect I wish to focus on - of which Druid is already aware.

No stone shall be left unturned.............

Thank-you 74Templar for the recommendation and to vkey08 and sheepslayer247 for allowing me to be a part of this as well.

I am honored to be a part of this team.

A new research project has been started:

The Reality of Global Warming.

Team members may begin posting.

Very well said.

I am glad to have you on the team. Your reputation for in-depth research precedes you, and as a team I think we'll have a very concise project.

No hurry, either, mate. This project may perhaps take over a month to complete (1 week minimum). Remember, we're after accuracy first and foremost.

Not to be daunting, but each team member has a 5 post minimum, and with the character limit set to 5000, that's a 25,000 character obligation. (Roughly.) With 5 team members, the Global Warming project will be in the neighborhood of 125,000 characters in length. To me, that's chicken-scratch,
because I'm used to 15,000 character debates.
That said, I don't want anyone on my team stressing about their obligation. Take it slow, and easy, and when you do post, make it something the rest of ATS is going to be envious of.

To all my team members, thanks for joining me on this endeavor, and if you have any questions or comments, I'll be reading here, and a u2u, of course, is always an option.

After your work on the Unsolved X-Files series of threads, I couldn't think of a better candidate to join us, so a recommendation was a no-brainer in my mind.

And I agree, let's show 'em how it's done. It's been a very long time since I collaborated on any project, so this should be interesting, to say the least.

Piece of cake.
Submissions for opinion pieces and news reports are in the realm of 70-100,000 characters, and some of the writing works I have done have topped 150,000 easily. Besides, if we're going to have a challenge, it may as well be a proper one....

It's awesome to see the tenacious attitudes of my team.

The Global Warming Project is also an attempt to help rejuvenate a long neglected forum on ATS, so keep in mind all the hard work that Rising Against has done to make this project possible, and remember that your posts in this forum are a reflection of what ATS is really all about. I don't like using the term "Elite", but honestly, my team is the essence of what makes me proud to be a member here.

With a bit of hard work, we'll get this forum functional again, but it's going to take a collaborative effort. Nobody can do it on their own. It takes Teamwork. I'd like to think that if the Debate Forum hones your critical thinking skills, which all my team members have done, the Research Forum will hone your ability to work with others. After all, none of this would be possible if we didn't all work together.

Hey guys,

To the gentlemen working on the JFK project. I know I haven't contributed since my initial post and I apologize. Several things have come up and my time and energy have been allocated to it. Posting today won't happen, although I said I would, but my participation and contribution to the project I respect.

I would rather be able to contribute meaningful material than be post something under a time restraint, which may create errors. Hope you understand.

I understand completely and I thank you for doing the right thing and focusing on the quality first.

I've been busy with work as well, and I'm being called in yet again today to cover someone. It's been happening a fair bit this week and that on top of real life thing's to do as well, not forgetting running this forum, my posting hasn't been on time either. I know Trex is taking her time on her next post too.

So, don't worry about it. This is only a level 1 project after all, so we can relax with it a little bit. Real life comes first, always. And quality is indeed the aim with this forum, not quantity.

With this in mind let me also take the time out here to thank you and of course everyone else helping to bring the quality to ATS. You've all genuinely been great!

Hello Everybody my handle is Sayonara_Jupiter and I am happy to be a new ATS Research Forum Scholar

I just wanted to provide a little background about my experiences so far on ATS and what brought me here, ultimately, to the Research Nerd Forums
One day, a few years ago, I asked myself some very basic questions : Where was Richard Nixon when the Apollo 11 launched? And what else happened during that weekend while the first men walked on the Moon?

My main focus has been so far on the Richard Nixon years and The Apollo Program (1968-1972). After 2 years of persistent research... I am coming to the conclusion that Howard Hughes might also be involved in the Apollo program. There are some tangible data that indicate RN was in 'sensitive' financial arrangements with Howard Hughes. There are some ideas that Hughes might be involved with Roswell but I am still to see any conclusive source material on that.

But what else I have found out might astound you. There were some interesting plot twists to the Apollo 11 story.... Such as.... What else happened during that mythical weekend when Apollo 11 walked on the Moon in July of 1969?

I don't think that these events happened in any coincidental way. Ted Kennedy was meant to DIE on that bridge in Chappaquiddick. But he didn't. For some strange twist of fate he was allowed to live... but his brothers were not so lucky.

About 2 months ago I started listening to Mae Brussell tapes that have been uploaded to youtube, and I must admit, she thinks like me and I adore her style. We need more Mae Brussell on ATS Research that's for sure... she has assembled the most formidable radio shows. It's impossible to ignore her impact on the conspiracy world. Please take a listen to the Queen of Conspiracies...

Mae Brussell -RFK Assassination- October 20,1971

Thank you, SayonaraJupiter!

That sounds like a very interesting Research Project.

Are you forming a team, or tossing it out for a possible topic, and wanting to be team member?

In this forum, Team Leaders recruit Research Participants. Presenting topics need a bit of follow-up. Are you recruiting, or just presenting information for anyone to take on as a Project?

posted on Feb, 12 2013 @ 05:57 AM

Would appreciate feedback from members and Moderators alike.

Thank you.

Hi all,

I have just received the Scholar Status, and am happy to be here. The Research Forum drew my attention due to its no nonsense and hard working foundations. While i do have a project lined up in my mind, i would perhaps prefer to get to know the ropes by participating in one of the ongoing threads (preferably a Level 2 Project).

If there are currently no openings available for my inclusion in any ongoing Research threads, i will be more than happy in describing the project i have in my mind, and hopefully get the ball rolling from there.

Thanks everyone, and i look forward to working with you all in the future,

Well I'm about a 1/4 done with my initial charts for ya Druid. Have learned an awful ot about how the NOAA and other organizations keep their records, and how far we've really come in a short time, it's fascinating.
