McQ, this morning points to a Daily Tech story I read as essentially saying that the scientific community has begun to back away from the suppose it consensus about the theory that humans are responsible for global warming.  He quotes a large portion of the text and then says: Interesting.

Hmmm. Captain Ed, and James Joyner both note that Richard Jewel has died… kidney trouble, and complications from diabetes,  apparently. He was only 44. Richard Jewell will always stand up my mind is a prime example  of how someone’s reputation can be damaged by a press bent on doing precisely that.  Ed suggests (amazingly) that […]

[The democrats are] thinking of making it a misdemeanor to be a US Senator or Member of Congress. Then all of the Republicans will be forced to resign.
