Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: study

Added: 17.01.2018 23:50 | 0 views | 0 comments


Earth's surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions. A revised calculation of how greenhouse gases drive up the planet's temperature reduces the range of possible end-of-century outcomes by more than half, researchers said in the report, published in the journal Nature. How effectively the world slashes CO2 and methane emissions, improves energy efficiency, and develops technologies to remove CO2 from the air will determine whether climate change remains manageable or unleashes a maelstrom of human misery.

Senator reaches for nonexistent glasses and takes them off anyway

Today's collective LOL at the expense of lawmakers came courtesy of Senator Orrin Hatch, who just reached for his glasses and, upon finding there were none there, decided to take them off anyway. SEE ALSO: This state senator wants to revive net neutrality in California The 83-year-old was deep in the middle of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen when he made the gaffe. Of course Twitter pounced like a rabid fox on the nonsensical gesture. Here it is in all its glory. And here's perhaps the best of the inevitable jokes that followed. .@OrrinHatch we got you, dude pic.twitter.com/ymMhRuiiOS — The Daily Show (@TheDailyShow) January 16, 2018 Hatch’s communications director Matt Whitlock followed up the incident with a pretty boring explanation — “The senator wears reading glasses and normally reads over his notes one last time before questioning witnesses in a hearing” — before his official account made a slightly funnier joke on Twitter. Oh you mean his invisible glasses from Warby Parker? They're new, you've probably never heard of them. pic.twitter.com/pygTRwbJl7 — Senator Hatch Office (@senorrinhatch) January 16, 2018 The glasses episode was just a sideshow, however, to the most significant event of the hearing: New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker slammed Nielsen for refusing to corroborate reports that Trump used the word "shithole" to refer to African nations.

Added: 17.01.2018 17:23 | 0 views | 0 comments

In an exclusive interview with Reuters Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump shot down the notion the U.S. would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem within a year. In comments made earlier Wednesday during a trip to India, the Israeli prime minister said of the move, “my solid assessment is that it will go much faster than you think – within a year from now,” Press TV reported. “By the end of the year? We’re talking about different scenarios – I mean obviously that would be on a temporary basis. We’re not really looking at that. That’s no.” – US President Donald Trump’s reaction to moving embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem Last month, Trump’s own Secretary of State Rex Tillerson...
