Gillibrand Abandons Principles for Her Job

CongressDaily – Facing Challenge, Gillibrand Veers Left:

Gillibrand’s makeover was clearly on display Tuesday night. As more than a score of Democrats joined Republicans to help pass an amendment by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., to loosen restrictions on guns in national parks, Gillibrand — once the darling of the National Rifle Association — voted no.

That was the latest in a series of Senate votes in which she has uniformly backed gun control — a sharp change for a woman who used to boast of sleeping with two guns under her bed and who voted consistently pro-gun in the House.

President Barack Obama’s communications director resigned unexpectedly Tuesday, just over three months after the administration began.

Ellen Moran will move from her high-profile West Wing post to the decidedly less powerful position of Chief of Staff to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.

Moran was a high-profile supporter of Hillary Clinton.

Asked why she’d leave the White House for a staff job in the cabinet, Moran said: “That’s all I got for you” and walked away.

Antarctic ice is growing, not melting away

Antarctic ice is growing, not melting away | World News | News.com.au:

ICE is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.

The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent’s western coast.

Antarctica has 90 per cent of the Earth’s ice and 80 per cent of its fresh water, The Australian reports. Extensive melting of Antarctic ice sheets would be required to raise sea levels substantially, and ice is melting in parts of west Antarctica. The destabilisation of the Wilkins ice shelf generated international headlines this month.

Humman Impact on Global Warming is Overblown

“Do we have to pin everything that happens on global warming? No, we need to have cooler heads.”

Fairbourne’s assessment Monday came on the same day that the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine appeared before the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., and announced that it has the signatures of more than 31,000 scientists — including Fairbourne’s — who agree that the human impact on global warming is overblown.
