Cigarettes are legal, we are not allowed to smoke them in places ahead by the public.  Nor is smoking marijuana allowed in those places.  Gov. Hickenloopr did not pass recreational marijuana to see its effects.  The Colorado voters did via the ballot.

I will have to rename Elizabeth Black Captain Obvious. Yes, Climate Change is real. It has been going on for 5 billion years.

However, there is absolutely no proof that it is human caused. It is not caused by CO2 emissions because there has been no temperature increase over the past 17 years.

The entire liberal Global Warming hypothesis is based on lab and computer models that can not even get a 5 day forecast right. Ask any forecaster and they will honestly tell you that anything beyond 3 days is a shot in the dark. There are just too many variables involved in Climate and the Weather, to make long term predictions, particularly when it is trying to take 150 years worth of data, only 50 of which might be accurate, and extrapolate a change in a climate period which has been in existence for 60 million years. That would be like making a daily forecast based on a one second observation.

Scientific truth is not voted on, and does not derive from consensus. It is established by observation and data. The attempt to quell the dissenting voices of scientists is frightening.

In response to Mr. Guthro,

Not that I am a big fan of Mr. Wright, but it seems to me that there are a lot of criticisms about this issue of carrying a gun at the Capitol that are unfair to him. If you read the article from the Sentinel (linked to below) you will find that he is not the only one who has done it, but also that there is nothing illegal about it. “As the speaker (Mark Ferrandino) said, “it’s something that’s gone on in this building since it was built” He has a legal conceal carry permit and is allowed to go there so where is the controversy. Looks like it is just more of politics as usual. If you want to beat a candidate and turn favor toward your own guy you take a page right out of the Democrat playbook and smear them with anything you can whether it is true or not.

The public rarely looks beyond the headlines to actually read the story. In this one his opponents are depending on the public to see “gun in Capitol” and hit the panic button, assuming someone (Wright) is dangerous. As for some crazy person “stumbling” across it and doing something horrible, REALLY? What are the chances of that happening? It is all hype with the intent to smear Wright by his political opponents.
