There's a clown named Arthur Chu

who became famous for winning on some game show, who's now very big in leftist circles.  And, like so many leftists, he really doesn't like people being allowed to say things he doesn't approve of.

His solution is the equivalent of letting Ford or Toyota be sued because a drunk driver was in one of their cars when he caused a wreck.  It's stupid, and have no doubt it's intended to make free speech more difficult.  And more expensive, don't forget that.

One of the criticisms of AGW/Man-Caused Climate Change theory is that the models used are not accurate; they cannot account for all the factors involved, in part because we don't even know all of them.  Case in point:
According to a study by the Institute of Catalysis and Environment in Lyon (IRCELYON, CNRS / University Lyon 1) and the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), the oceans are producing unexpectedly large quantities of isoprene – a volatile organic compound (VOC) – which is known to have a cooling effect on climate.
One thing, with possibly HUGE effects.  God knows what else is out there we don't know about.

No, not ignoring the murders in Oregon.  The blood-dancing started before we really knew anything, especially by the Dancer-In-Chief, leading to this:
I will say it's clarifying to see the president admit to willfully politicizing an event so he can confiscate guns of law-abiding people.
And, as was also noted,
Back then:
I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.”
He praised the gun control efforts in Australia, a nation that conducted a mass confiscation of firearms from its citizenry.

A bunch of Democrats are realizing/dealing with the fact that a lot of people are getting screwed in Obamacare, and they don't want to be linked to it.

That's interesting about isoprene. On land, it's produced by heat-stressed plants, and it reacts in the atmosphere to form aerosols and haze. It seems to be a global heat-regulating loop: high temperatures --> isoprene --> less sunlight --> less heat.

It's not so clear what is going on with the oceans. The increase may be coming from the Archaea (primitive bacteria), and not as much is known about those.
