Is Citizenship Required for Social Security Disability or Retirement Benefits?

Answer: Many believe that American citizenship is needed to receive Social Security benefits. But that’s not true. Resident aliens (or “green card” holders) may qualify to receive Social Security payments, as long as they meet some additional guidelines, such as having 10 years of work in the U.S. under their belts.

  1. Robert wrote, AMac is obsessed with the Tiljander prxeios, but has never been able to formulate any kind of a scientific argument against the way they are used in climate reconstructions. Robert appears to be implying that there are plausible scientific arguments in favor of the way the Tiljander data series are used in the climate reconstructions presented in Mann08.If that is his claim, I applaud him it’s the strongest possible defense of that paper, thus also of subsequent papers that rely on its reconstructions. (The authors of Kemp11 chose to compare their sea level findings to Composite EIV global land plus ocean global temperature reconstruction (see Figs. 2A, 4A, S3,S4, and S5). This recon is from Mann08 s S.I. figure S6, panel F.)It is perhaps noteworthy that There are plausible scientific arguments is rarely if ever advanced by knowledgeable defenders of Mann08 s use of the Tiljander data series.Instead, it’s proposed that We can’t know one way or the other’, or It doesn’t matter’, or It’s too complicated for non-experts to grasp.’ Ad hominems also make an appearance.The difficulty may be that the strong assertion There are plausible scientific arguments in favor of Mann08 s use of the Tiljander series invites obvious follow-on questions that have only unsatisfying answers.I have laid out the problems with how Mann08 employed the Tiljander series at my blog. One can start with yesterday’s and work out from there. Good discussion in the comments, too.
