California Gov. Jerry Brown kept up his assault on climate change Monday, pushing through a law meant to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from dairy farms and landfills.
"You know, when Noah wanted to build his ark, most of the people laughed at him?" Brown said, per the Sacramento Bee, adding that that ark saved Earth's species.
"We've got to build our ark, too, by stopping ... dangerous pollutants." Brown's approval of Senate Bill 1383 goes after short-lived climate pollutants, which include methane, black carbon, and HFC gases, per the AP....
One of the main methane culprits: manure. Per the bill, dairy farmers have to cut methane emissions to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030. Under a cap-and-trade plan, farmers will receive aid from the $50 million or so raised via polluter fees, which they can then put toward machinery that uses methane to create energy they can in turn sell to electric companies.I am trying to imagine the device that captures flatulence but not the ... solid outputs.

With the presidential race tighter than ever as it heads into its final stretch, panicked Hillary Clinton supporters are desperate to find a way to discredit, not just Donald Trump, but anyone who would dare support him. Last Sunday, a Clinton surrogate from Virginia added to the candidate’s own list of names for Trump voters (which most recently included “deplorable” and “irredeemable”) by describing them as “mentally deficient.”
Northern Virginia Delegate Mark Levine (D-45) issued the characterization during a Fox News segment that discussed comments Donald Trump made during a campaign rally in Miami on September 16.
That's Search Engine Optimization if you didn't already know. For the last few months I was getting spam comments on the Civilian Gun Self-Defense Blog that pointed to a gun training guy in Boston. Eventually, I got so tired of deleting them I contacted him. He did not know. He was paying some firm in India to do SEO services for him, and this was what they did--spam my comments! And the comments had at best an apologetic tone about gun ownership. He said he would have them stop, and I no longer see that spam, but I am begiining to see other spam comments look like SEO services and even less relevant to the posts.

Changing your baby's diaper is just another part of a day in the life of a mom, right? Of course. But now, that daily act could be a much bigger issue for some moms.
Last week, a ruling in the Supreme Court of the State of Arizona determined that any act that involves "intentionally or knowingly" touching a child under fifteen's "private parts" would be deemed child molestation - and one of those very acts could be diaper changing. What?!
Essentially, it has to do with semantics. One of the problems in the ruling - which came after a man convicted of molestation appealed the court to interpret that the "touching" part of the ruling require sexual intent. Unfortunately, the court refused and upheld the original language.
I confess, they are similar enough in appearance that a low-res picture would be unclear. 9/25/16 CNN:
Cetin immigrated from Turkey and is a legal permanent resident of the United States, authorities said. It's unclear when he moved to the US....
State authorities said it's too early to rule out terrorism or anything else because their investigation is in its preliminary stages. Before the suspect's arrest, an official with the FBI had told reporters there was "no evidence at this time" of a link to terrorism.He might just be mentally ill. From reading this article, I lean towards mental illness.
A Twitter page in Cetin’s name (identified as his page by the New York Times) contains this 2015 post:
In another post on Twitter, Cetin suggested Hillary Clinton should be on the new $10 bill. However, he also included Hitler’s wife in that list.
Hmm. Four women killed at makeup counter. We know how the jihadi feel about makeup. Don't know if there's an exemption for sheep.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Tests revealed Keith Scott's fingerprints, DNA and blood were on a gun recovered at Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting scene, police sources told Channel 9 reporter Mark Becker.
