I'm betting on zombies. That's why I'm thinking about getting a .45-70 Henry rifle and/or a 40mm grenade launcher.
Actually, I think Trump will get us killed first.

Actually, the smile was because I was poking at the right. Poor attempt at humor.

Christine Todd Whitman on the hijacking of EPA.
Quote:
As a Republican appointed by President George W. Bush to run the agency, I can hardly be written off as part of the liberal resistance to the new administration. But the evidence is abundant of the dangerous political turn of an agency that is supposed to be guided by science.
In one sentence and there is more.
Quote:
On the other side is a tiny minority of contrarians who publish very little by comparison, are rarely cited in the scientific literature and are often funded by fossil fuel interests, and whose books are published, most often, by special interest groups. That Mr. Pruitt seeks to use the power of the E.P.A. to elevate those who have already lost the argument is shameful, and the only outcome will be that the public will know less about the science of climate change than before.

She sure reveals the lies behind whell's absurd "study", doesn't she? Yet clueless whell persists with his bullshit. Sigh.

Whell, the ship has already sailed. The Northwest Passage is open in the Arctic.

A dam glacier the size of Rhode Island has calved away from the Antartic's largest ice shelf.

And you want to hold up a shiny mirror.

A bit more on SUV's.

Is anybody here familiar with the Simpsons episode where Marge is getting an SUV? This car turns the loving and caring mother into an asshole instantly. One of the best Simpsons episodes, by the way.

After watching the episode I better understood why so many Americans need a 3 tons 350 hp car in order to get to the parking lot of the grocery store. (We have quite a lot of SUV's here as well but the percentage number in the States is breathtaking.)

China looks at plans to ban petrol and diesel cars

Guess the Cato climate analysis has not been translated into Mandarin yet.

Could ‘swimming pool’ nuclear reactors help clear China’s winter smog?

This is to slowly replace coal for heating, smaller nuclear local reactors rather than large scale ones that can take years to build.

We've given up scientific leadership on climate to anti-science industry hacks. We are going to be left in the dust by countries who've taken a sober assessment of the facts. A sad day for the USA, now a laughingstock on climate, among so many other things where we once led the world.

Let's hope voters wake up for midterm elections. Sadly, far too many get their "news" via FB friends or Fox.
