Definitely. Bad headlines are unfortunately common

There are no ministry black ops folks; it's down to what you, joining with the people around you, can do to alter policy

It's not quite there — there is a combination of heat and humidity which will kill some people, but it's not going to look like an everybody-dies situation unless the next day is hotter.

Note that there are two common "wet bulb" temperatures used in discussion:

  • Wet Bulb Globe Temperature - this tells you that physical activity (including work) in unshaded locations can kill healthy adults and is used in this article
  • Wet Bulb Temperature - this tells you whether it is hot enough to kill the bulk of the population for just sitting still in the shade with access to plenty of water

A Washington Post analysis found that the wet-bulb globe temperature, which measures the amount of heat stress on the human body, reached 97 degrees to 100 degrees (36 to 38 Celsius) in Delhi on Tuesday. That is higher than the 89.6 Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) threshold that researchers have identified as posing a risk to human survival if such heat is prolonged. The wet-bulb globe temperature is based on a combination of factors including temperature, humidity, wind and clouds, and was calculated by The Post using data from a nearby weather station.

Forecasters warned of “DVD-size hail” as stones larger than grapefruits bombarded an area near Lubbock.

The NYT ran an article about jurors answers to the questionaire

Hearing the evidence must have been a real shock to their bubble.

It's Steyer, so he's likely recommending that polluters be the ones who pay.

Impeachment has to start in the House, where Republicans hold a majority. They don't have enough honor or integrity to do that.

Impeachment would need to start in the House, which has a Republican majority. If they had any honor, they'd move to impeach, but they don't.

He has something of a history of flying flags in support of the insurrection.

It's pretty much every institution which has had charge over kids, particularly when the parents weren't in a position to withdraw them from it. The Catholics have central organization and record-keeping, so we hear about it.

Several things in combination:

  • It's sufficiently close to the equator
  • Topography limits air circulation
  • heat dome
  • Dumping the waste from fossil fuel burning into the atmosphere raised it above where temperatures used to get

Because he's been willing to fund a lot of the activist organizations, and nobody else really stepped up

Because it costs about $5 more to put in a valve which lets them work both ways, and people don't really know that this is a possibility, so they don't ask for it.

Great that you voted, but third party basically throws your vote away in a first-past-the-post system.

Let's look at three situations:

Scenario 1:

D: 1001 votes R: 1000 votes H: 0 votes

D wins


Scenario 2:

D: 1000 votes R: 1000 votes H: 1 vote

Tied election, decided by the House, so R wins


Scenario 3:

D: 999 votes R: 1001 votes H: 2 votes

R wins


This is why it makes enormous sense to avoid third parties in most of the US, and choose the major-party candidate you'd rather negotiate with.
