Are people moving physics questions into global warming section?
A previous question asked about why people post to the global warming section. A few said they started answering in the physics section but moved on ... and suddenly we find lots of physics questions appearing. Coincidence?

Yes, a troll has been doing that--perhaps "The Yahoo Joker". I've apparently gotten under his skin and he thinks that answering a bunch of first year physics questions will "prove" whether or not I'm a physicist. He's also been very abusive in other ways.
Most of the questions seem to be applications of various formulae, such as the thin lens equation, spherical mirror equation, F=ma, etc. I replied to one of his abusive questions that someone (not me) moved into Yahoo Answers Abuse and Spam and told him that if he's going to test physics knowledge he needs to up the level of the questions, so I gave him a couple of examples of graduate level questions.
I only wish that when I sat for my Ph.D. departmental exams in physics that they were at the level of the moved questions, I would have had a much less stressful week!
EDIT: Wow, 5 minutes later I have 7 thumbs down, amazing! Someone has multiple accounts. I think his other question may have been deleted, perhaps YA still has some people working on abuse.

Yeah, some denier troll with issues keeps moving physics questions in here.
