Here's some "science!"

"I don't want get into the debate about climate change, but I simply want to point out that I think we in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars. There’s no factories on Mars that I'm aware of."
State Sen. Brandon Smith said, according to Louisville NPR affiliate WFPL.

The honorable Mr. Smith is wrong, wrong and wrong.

I suppose we all have a right to complain when someone in authority, who holds the same beliefs as is made to look ridiculous. But complaining about "warmers" doesn't change the fact that the daily average temperature on Mars between -103° and 16°F.

In this particular case it's up to Senator Smith to either say, "I was mistaken and will do more research on the matter."

Or he can complain about people making fun of him.

I consider 1 of those 2 the as a mature response.

Sir replied to Jay's discussion Is it possible to accurately predict someone else's past or present emotions?
"I'm unclear on what it means to predict past or present, rather than future, events. OK, so my mood is calm (or is it anxious?), perception is -1, and reaction is -3.  What can you get from this?"
