Climate Alarmism

How it hurts us all.

Frightening kids with this unscientific nonsense is one more form of child abuse in government schools. And Greta T is the poster child for it.

[Update a while later]

The UN’s “woke” climate-change propaganda is an insult to science.

Sorry, just noticed that the last link is behind a paywall.

CRS Mission

It was scrubbed yesterday for weather, but it’s set to launch in a few minutes. It’s an unflown booster, but the cargo Dragon has flown before.

Everything looking good through Max Q.

Clean MECO and stage separation. About to do boostback of the booster. Grid fins are deployed.

[Update a few more minutes later]

Another successful landing. I don’t think they’ve had a failure for Falcon 9 since the first success, though they have lost them on Falcon Heavy.

[Update a few more minutes later]

Solar arrays deployed, and Dragon on its way to ISS.

[Late-morning update]

With this launch, SpaceX has hit another milestone.

Back Update

The bad news is that I can’t get an epidural until December 16th. The good news is that maybe I don’t need it. I’m no longer in back pain, though the problem has migrated lower into my upper thigh, making me a little gimpy. On the other hand, that’s getting better, too. At this rate, I should be back to normal this weekend. Now I have to start some strength training to prevent a recurrence.

The Impeachment Clown Show

Star clown Al Greene complains that there was insufficient racial diversity among the witnesses. Meanwhile, Jonathan Turley shot down many of the Dem’s “arguments” in flames.

[Update a while later]

Green’s complaint is pretty hilarious, given that the witnesses were selected by Democrat leadership.

Not surprising, of course, since the Democrat Party is traditionally the party of racism.

[Update a few minutes later]

Turley: Under the Dems definition of abuse of power, Obama could have been impeached.

He should have been, actually.
