File under "No one wants to take away your guns" (#2A #GunControl): Dem congressman Eric Swalwell: Force gun owners to get rid of assault weapons (Oh, and for extra credit, it costs billions, too.)

Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons — and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”

Reminder that some science is more falsifiable: Scientists acknowledge key errors in study of how fast the oceans are warming - Researchers now admit they can’t necessarily claim oceans were warming much faster than previously thought.

The central problem, according to Keeling, came in how the researchers dealt with the uncertainty in their measurements. As a result, the findings suffer from too much doubt to definitively support the paper’s conclusion about how much heat the oceans have absorbed over time.

The central conclusion of the study — that oceans are retaining ever more energy as more heat is being trapped within Earth’s climate system each year — is in line with other studies that have drawn similar conclusions. And it hasn’t changed much despite the errors. But Keeling said the authors' miscalculations mean there is a much larger margin of error in the findings, which means researchers can weigh in with less certainty than they thought.

Barring a successful lawsuit, Florida machine recount confirms DeSantis as the winner: margin of victory (0.41%) is not slim enough to proceed to a manual recount, which requires the race to be within 0.25%.
