THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Sequestration may slow down Obama's EPA agenda
Sequestration already appears to have significant positive effects for the economy, as the massive 2% cut in the EPA budget this year leads to the rogue agency warning that staff furloughs "could create slowdowns in some of the agency's ongoing projects at a time when Obama has signaled that federal agencies will play a leading role in carrying out his promise to respond to the threat of climate change."
Weather Channel finds Summer warmer than Winter – due to Global Warming… | Musings from the Chiefio
Just wrong and stupid on so many levels. The worst, of course, being to compare an island having long summer days to continental USA in mid winter. They have, in essence, discovered that summer is warmer than winter, but didn’t notice… Instead they find that South Shetland Islands in summer are warmer than the US “Pick City” in winter due to Global Warming.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Cape Cod community considers taking down wind turbines after illness, noise
Two wind turbines towering above the Cape Cod community of Falmouth, Mass., were intended to produce green energy and savings -- but they've created angst and division, and may now be removed at a high cost as neighbors complain of noise and illness.

"It gets to be jet-engine loud," said Falmouth resident Neil Andersen. He and his wife Betsy live just a quarter mile from one of the turbines. They say the impact on their health has been devastating. They're suffering headaches, dizziness and sleep deprivation and often seek to escape the property where they've lived for more than 20 years.
