ClimateSafe Villages operates as a nonaligned electronic reading, lending, sharing, and research library, and preservation archive. The purpose of our research library and archive service is to promote independent investigation and public debate and dialog on issues critical to our social and individual well-being.
Statements made in any documents in any of our research libraries or archives on or off the Internet do not necessarily represent the views or opinions of ClimateSafe Villages. We provide only the electronic medium for transferring information, with the explicit understanding that each user will independently evaluate it and carefully make up their own mind as to its factual accuracy and usefulness.
For the following reasons, ClimateSafe Villages treats all of the information on its website, in these electronic research libraries, email boxes, electronic chats, comment fields, blog postings, editorials, and electronic conferences as allegations, opinions, or theoretical research discussions and makes absolutely no claims for the factual accuracy or validity of any information, statement, or document contained in any of its electronic research libraries or services:
Independent individuals, organizations, or authors contributing documents to ClimateSafe Villages' research libraries may be exercising their constitutional rights of petition, free speech, freedom of opinion, participation in government, or freedom of religion in researching, evaluating, and freely discussing any matter. These discussions or statements may be the constitutionally protected opinions, allegations, satire, fiction, or religious beliefs or religious opinions of these independent individuals, organizations, or authors and, as such, may or may not be factual.
Most of the documents in our research libraries have been electronically scanned and mechanically translated. Even using the newest technologies, errors occur naturally during this process.
Some of the information contained in these libraries may be fictional works, "works in progress," or archival materials included in the library or archive only to preserve their possible historical or bibliographical value or for which even the author or contributor makes no claims as to the document's factual accuracy.
The information posted in our electronic research libraries, email boxes, electronic chats, comment fields, blog postings, editorials, and electronic conferences may be posted by independent individuals or organizations hostile to our organization and their goals, done so with the intent to embarrass, disrupt, or otherwise distract or divert our organization into internal or legal conflicts for the purpose of stopping messages they do not like.
The information posted in our electronic research libraries, email boxes, electronic chats, comment fields, blog postings, editorials, and electronic conferences may be posted by hackers or other individuals or groups with commercial or other interests contrary to the well-being of our organization.
Because we are not always aware of everything posted on our websites and because of the preceding, neither ClimateSafe Villages, nor any of its information providers offer any warranties, expressed or implied, concerning the performance of the ClimateSafe Villages information network or the veracity of information available through on or provided by ClimateSafe Villages.
