    Scientists apparently can't predict where forests are right now, but weather patterns one hundred years from now, no problem. Some things were never suitable for a 'free market' and CO2 is one of them People are willing to set up a two trillion dollar global market to read carbon, but their carbon models are so primitive that giant ‘oops’ moments are now happening on a regular basis reports Joanne Nova. A Yale-led study in 2015 estimated that there are more than 3 trillion trees on Earth, about seven and a half times more than some previous estimates. Previously, the only...

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | January 15th, 2017 | By Dan Walters
    After a half-decade of drought, California has been buffeted this winter by a series of powerful rain and snowstorms that dumped countless billions of gallons of water on the state’s watersheds. Some of the deluge was captured in the form of mountain snows that will feed rivers and streams during the annual spring melt. But at lower elevations, it was rain, some retained in man-made reservoirs that had become seriously depleted, but most flowing swiftly to the Pacific Ocean. At one point last week, flows on the Sacramento River and its American River tributary were more than 130,000 cubic feet...
  • FBI warns of Islamic State threat to Mississippi River bridge

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI has warned local authorities of a threat that Islamic State militants would blow up the Memphis & Arkansas Bridge spanning the Mississippi River, an agency spokesman said on Tuesday. The bridge is a major route connecting Tennessee and Arkansas. The Federal Bureau of Investigation passed the threat on to local police in a bulletin out of an "abundance of caution," spokesman Chris Allen said. "This is an unsubstantiated, anonymous threat," he said, adding that there was no useful intelligence arising from it. Allen had no details on when the threat was received or how. The...

    EXCLUSIVE: The late comedian went to Yorkville Endoscopy for a routine endoscopy on Aug. 28, but a doctor — who arrived with Rivers' entourage — offered to perform a biopsy after another doctor noticed 'something' on the entertainer's vocal chords, a medical source told the Daily News. The routine surgical procedure Joan Rivers was supposed to undergo turned deadly when a doctor who arrived at the clinic with the legendary comic’s entourage performed an unplanned biopsy on her vocal cords, a medical source who was briefed on the case told The News. Such a procedure is not supposed to be...

    It’s no secret that the late comedy icon Joan Rivers was no friend of First Lady Michelle Obama. And according to a late interview only weeks before her death, the Fashion Police host banned Mrs. Obama from attending her wake. In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, Rivers also banned singer Adele, calling her “fat,” and Chelsea Handler, before calling her a “drunk” and a “whore.” At a signing for her new book Diary of a Mad Diva at an NYC Barnes & Noble, a reporter asked Rivers about the possibility of the first gay president, where she replied:...

    Today’s post is dedicated to Joan Rivers. Because she was funny and she made you laugh, on purpose. Yes, she could be crude, mean, non-politically correct; everything we need as antidotes to the touchy-feely world crafted by our politically correct betters. Oh, they’re funny too, only not on purpose;- and they make you laugh not in a “funny ha ha” way, butt more of a “Funny or Die” way. Which sounds a little like the way those pesky Islamic extremists win people to their side: “convert or die.”For example, Barry on the Funny or Die network’s “Between Two Ferns” show last...

    Joan Rivers passed away today after suffering complications during surgery. She was 81.NBC News reported: Raspy-voiced and brassy, Rivers was always self-deprecating, foul-mouthed and politically incorrect. A master of reinvention, she endured in show business because of her tenacious work ethic — which she credited to her “immigrant mentality.”Comedians typically push the envelope, but Rivers proved time and again that she didn’t even see the envelope. To her fans, she was as shocking as she was endearing.“The way she is funny, she tells the truth according to herself,” the late film critic Roger Ebert wrote in 2010. “She hates...

    What connects this to the abortion issue is what NBC News’ chief medical editor, Dr. Nancy Snyderman (pictured below right), said we could learn from this tragedy on the August 29 Today show: SNYDERMAN: The really important thing here is that every time you think you’re going to have a procedure, no matter how minor, you have to constantly remind yourself that although these things are rare, they can happen. And one more thing I should say, make sure your doctor has admitting privileges to the local hospital, because in this case it may well have saved Joan Rivers’ life.”...

    (Language Warning) When TMZ caught up with comedian Joan Rivers Thursday outside of LAX she unleashed an emotional rant on the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, screaming, "You are all insane, they [Palestinians] started it!" Rivers got animated at the paparazzi's question about the mounting civilian casualties, saying, “Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out. If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey."

    Well, I know someone who’s not invited to this year’s White House 4th of July BBQ: Consider this my contribution to your Independence Day celebration; somebody else can bring the baked beans this year. It’s obvious that Joanie is suicidal, most likely due to one too many face lifts. Butt as long as I’m covering things that are not true, I would like to point out that the rumor circulating about Big Guy visiting a Mosque on the 4th are likewise not true. As they say, good satire contains an element of truth, and great satire is totally believable.Now, back...

    A bird native to Arizona and other western states could be listed as a threatened species by the federal government. The Yellow-billed Cuckoo lives along the Verde, Colorado and San Pedro Rivers in Arizona. It also can be found at the Gila River and Rio Grande in New Mexico and the Sacramento and Kern Rivers in California. Federal officials said the bird’s habitat is shrinking because of dams and other construction projects on the rivers, plus cattle grazing.

    Catching a 300-pound killer shark is supposed to be a once-in-a-lifetime event. But nearly three years after commercial fisherman John “Willy” Dean hauled in the first bull shark recorded in the Potomac in 37 years, he repeated the feat Tuesday — twice. The first of the two bull sharks Dean caught Tuesday in the waters off of Point Lookout State Park at the tip of St. Mary’s County was already dead in the water. Sharks need a constant flow of moving water to breathe, Dean’s son Greg said. Constrained in a net that the Deans use to take in fish...
