El Niño, La Niña, and Natural Gas

Death Valley, California, is known as “the hottest place on earth.” But, if you hear the news that the “Hottest Place on Earth Has Record-Breaking Hot June”—when “temperatures exceeded average June temperatures by about 6 °F”—it might be easy to ascribe the heat to alarmist claims of climate change. As Southern California experienced power outages due to a heat wave, Death Valley hit 126 °F—though the previous June high reached 129 °F on June 30, 2013, and it holds the highest officially recorded temperature on the planet: 134 °F on July 10, 1913.

U.S. Military to Allow Soldiers to Crossdress

New recruits would have to crossdress for at least 18 months prior to joining the military, presumably to avoid last-minute transitions from one mode of dress to another. Still, if a member of the armed forces wishes to swap genders while serving on active duty, they may be able to do so “if a military medical provider determines it is necessary,” according to reports.

Spin Sisters gives readers an insider’s view (similar to Bernie Goldberg, author of the liberal media exposé Bias) of the “members of the female media elite, a Girls’ Club of editors, producers, print and television journalists with similar attitudes and opinions who influence the way millions of American women think and feel about their lives, their world, and themselves.”

Bill Nye and Scientism
