    is sustainable seafood really sustainable? consumers are being misled by a global program that amounts to “greenwashing” — a strategy that makes consumers think they are protecting the planet, when actually they are not … the findings suggested that Canadian swordfish boats accidentally kill almost two sharks for every swordfish they catch.

    team at osu successfully ran a test to burn coal and produce heat without releasing carbon dioxide:

    A new form of clean coal technology reached an important milestone recently, with the successful operation of a research-scale combustion system at Ohio State University. The technology is now ready for testing at a larger scale.

    For 203 continuous hours, the Ohio State combustion unit produced heat from coal while capturing 99 percent of the carbon dioxide produced in the reaction.

    Rather moot, I’d say.

    Scaling this up would produce a hell of a lot of “captured” carbon dioxide, the dream of injecting it underground has gone bust, we don’t have that many greenhouses on the planet to pump it into, and rocketing it into the sun is too expensive.

    GOP’s Shelby to Back Defense Nominee Hagel

    GOP caving. That is what America needs more of.

    Let the technocrats run the country, the scientists. Stick to your Trailer Parks with your nonsense about Socialism, Kenya and Muslim sell outs. Keep the “For Entertainment purposes only” phony political stuff on Fox etc for your emotionally-charged self-indulgent fun. Bengazi! Fast and Furious! is just Roadrunner and Wile E, Coyote for the information deprived.

    We’ve got a country to run, get out of the way GOP.

    Great article about the markup on hospital bills and how ordinary people get taken for all they are worth for hospital care.
