"...The incident comes as the future of the agency’s climate research grows increasingly uncertain.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "SAYING and DOING"

The Old Mountain Goat KNOWS and UNDERSTANDS, about "BELIEVERS" and "OTHERS", that continue to "TRY"!

http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2016/02/23/pope_francis_god_is_real,_too_many_christians_are_fake/1210574

“May the Lord give us this wisdom to understand well where lies the difference between saying and doing, and teach us the way of doing and help us to go down that way, because the way of saying brings us to the place where were these teachers of the law, these clerics, who liked dressing up and acting just like if they were so many Majesties – and this is not the reality of the Gospel. May the Lord teach us this way.”

Pope Francis, Santa Marta, daily Mass, 23/02/2016 12:31

Pope Francis: God is real, too many Christians are fake
Pope Francis on Tuesday morning described Christianity as a religion that by its very nature must act for good, not a “religion of saying” made of hypocrisy and vanity

"...A newfound solar system just 39 light-years away contains seven warm, rocky, Earthlike planets, scientists say.

"...The discovery, reported Wednesday in the journal Nature, represents the first time astronomers have detected so many terrestrial planets orbiting a single star. Researchers say the system is an ideal laboratory for studying distant worlds and could be the best place in the galaxy to search for life beyond Earth...."

Opinion: Liberals and the Trump Blame Game

Ever since Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign and shot to the top of the polls, some political analysts have blamed liberals and liberalism for his rise. (For a long list of examples, type the words “Trump liberals fault” into Google.)

I find this argument to be pretty silly. Trump grew out of the political right, including Fox News and the false “birther” conspiracy theory. He was able to become president because the Republican establishment ultimately rallied to him. Liberals clearly failed in their attempts to stop Trump, but they did not create him.

My Times colleague Sabrina Tavernise took on many of these issues in a piece this weekend entitled, “Are Liberals Helping Trump?” I encourage you to read both the article and the comments on Facebook, where many readers took issue with the premise of the piece.

As you read them, keep in mind that there is a big difference between being responsible for Trump and helping him. Liberals are not responsible for Trump. But they should be reflective about the fact that they haven’t yet come up with an effective strategy for beating him.

Doing so will depend on winning over a significant number of Americans who voted for him. Simply calling him beyond the pale won’t persuade most of them. They heard that argument for much of 2016, and it didn’t sway them. The effective argument will need to be different.

Perhaps the smartest piece I’ve yet read on opposing Trump is still a November Op-Ed by Luigi Zingales, talking about the strategies that worked — and did not work — for opposing Silvio Berlusconi in Italy: Treat him like an ordinary politician, not a caricature, and don’t forget how much support he has.

The full Opinion report from The Times follows, including Peter Van Buren, who argues for the moral necessity of leaking information under some circumstances by talking about his own experience during the Iraq War.

MELTING GLACIERS

The Old Mountain Goat UNDERSTANDS ABOUT "CLIMATE CHANGE PROBLEM" - WHAT ABOUT "YOU"?

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/02/melting-glaciers-around-mount-everest-may-be-forming-killer-lakes?utm_campaign=news_daily_2017-02-17&et_rid=265283652&et_cid=1171673

"...Of the roughly 198,000 glaciers on the planet, more than a quarter are found in the Himalayas. But even this frigid expanse of ice and snow—home to nine of the world’s 10 highest peaks—is reeling from climate change. Many Himalayan glaciers are receding—and a new study of 32 glaciers around Mount Everest has found that those terminating in lakes have lost more ice mass than landlocked glaciers. That’s a worrying trend because many glacial lakes form behind unstable debris dams that are poised to collapse and send disastrous floods hurtling down valleys...."
