2014 is being ranked at the hottest year on record by NASA and NOAA. Skeptics and critics are trying to make hay out it saying that maybe the data shows it's only the second hottest year on record. Take that, NASA! Meanwhile Pope Francis is preparing a papal encyclical stating that, as far as the Church is concerned, global warming is real and is man-made thus giving conservatives reason to dislike this insane maverick pope even more than they did when he dared to discuss poverty.

Also in the news, the Supreme Court of the United States has agreed to take up a case concerning same-sex marriage, potentially paving the way for national recognition. This would probably be a relief to a lot of election-minded conservatives who would just like the issue to go away and would rather not continue to preach to the social conservative wing on a losing issue. Of course there's no sure bet which way the Court will rule but common assumption seems to be an upcoming win for SSM.

I'm going to get my southern trips in now then, before arizona becomes completely inhospitable.

I imagine that it wouldn't take much warming before things just start bursting into flame based on my last visit.

I watched the first 10 mins of the pilot for Agent Carter and turned it off. Couldn't get into S.H.I.E.L.D. either. Got bored of Arrow after 4-5 episodes.

Broadchurch from the BBC is on netflix & can & should be marathoned. It was like a British version of True Detective with the 10th Doctor as the lead. 2nd season has started overseas & gets to BBC America in March I believe.

Actually, it is the original British version of Gracepoint, not True Detective. I am going to watch it soon, because Gracepoint was so good, and I heard the ending is not exactly the same.

Broadchurch

Grace Point

I had no idea FOX remade it already & with David Tennant!?!! Heck, the 2nd Season of Broadchurch is just about to start. That has got to be the quickest remake of a TV show ever.

For any interested HERE a transcript of last nights State of the Union, and HERE the Republican response from Joni Ernst.

It's all pretty...meh, though I will give Obama credit for at least attempting to frame up the hard stuff for future legislastion. Easier to do, i suppose, for a second term pres.

Boehner and Biden are quite the couple. For two old white guys they contrast and compliment each other nicely.

I'm really worried that Cortana is going to be the next Paperclip.

Also, I get that Halo is, like, Microsoft's last connection to the world of gaming, but making it such a core part of your next Windows release? What?

Yes, I know this is likely just a working code name, but the point stands.

Hasn't the Conservative position been for some time now that the Earth is getting warmer, but they said we didn't know enough to be sure that humans were the cause, or if it was just a natural warming phenomenon?

I mean, it's still complete bullcrap and actually wrong, just... less wrong, I guess?

No. It's been full scale denial of any actual evidence to that effect. That's moderated slightly to "We can't prove humans have anything to do with it" and "Maybe warming is a good thing!" recently. We're about 100 years from the scientific consensus being treated as such.
