    What are they using for the baseline data? The write up cites data going back to 1932, but the chart shows 1935. New England had some really weird winters in the 1930s.

    Saw that in the news today (link). They officially close in three weeks.

    That source does not fully support your claim. By the way, the history teacher I alluded to in the post (that I concluded with a wink) was a Massachusetts full-blooded Native American.

    I recollect from pre-colonial history class that the Native Americans in present-day New England used to purposefully burn large swaths of land on a regular basis. What a blatant disregard of their...

    An issue with electricity, as well as COVID and CO2, is that since you can't actually see it, it makes it easier for those with agendas to detrimentally fill in the blanks when pushing policy. Many...

    Naturally occurring forest fires also release CO2. Trees consume CO2. I think that's what Elton John's "Circle of Life" song was about?

    8.5% is still a pretty significant tax for going out to eat, particularly when multiplied by the growing tabs courtesy inflation.
