==> At IER, I discuss the refreshing honesty from James Hansen.
==> My colleagues at IER assembled a fact sheet on ANWR.
==> I don’t think I linked this here yet? Anyway Matt Ridley’s recent post on why he’s a climate “lukewarmer” is really good. He sounds like the epitome of a reasonable guy. Naturally people went nuts on him.
==> This story is really interesting about someone flipping the discriminatory baker thing around when he was denied service after requesting a cake with offensive words. However, I would feel a lot better about it if we were certain the guy was doing it purely to make a point. I had people assuring me on FB that that’s what it was, but I dunno… (To try to help keep the discussion in the comments on point: It is certainly true that the Old Testament has strong prohibitions against homosexuality. But that doesn’t mean “God hates gays” unless you think God hates every single human besides Jesus.)
==> UPDATE: I originally thought this Mark Perry piece was saying something else. Texas was not the only state to add net jobs since the recession began. Rather, it is showing that Texas added more net jobs than the U.S. as a whole. I.e. the net jobs created in some of the other 49 states were more than offset by the net job losses in some of the 49 other states. (Don’t judge me, I had the flu a few days ago and haven’t gotten enough sleep.)
