Consumers' right-to-know the origin of their beef and pork has been quashed as the country-of-origin-labeling rule has been repealed.

Hold onto your hats. Or parasols. It’s getting warmer.The land and sea temperatures are in for last month, and it was the hottest September in 135 years of record keeping by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. May, June, and August also set records.That means 2014 has tied 1998 for the warmest first nine months on record — and it will likely surpass 2010 for warmest year on record. In fact, there’s been a lot of record breaking these last few years. The AP’s Seth Borenstein reports:If 2014 breaks the record for hottest year, that also should sound familiar: 1995, 1997, 1998, 2005 and 2010 all broke NOAA records for the hottest years since records started being kept in 1880.“This is one of many indicators that climate change has not stopped and that it continues to be one of the most important issues facing humanity,” said University of Illinois climate scientist Donald Wuebbles.Some people, mostly non-scientists, have been claiming that the world has not warmed in 18 years, but “no one’s told the globe that,” [NOAA climate scientist Jessica] Blunden said.

The West, however, was much warmer; California was a record-breaking 4.1 degrees above average.So if your neighbor, or uncle, or hairdresser, or senatorial candidate doubts that the world is warming — because, hey, it was cold in some states this year, it even snowed! — here’s a chart with the latest data you can direct him or her to:Temperature anomalies (or variations from aver …

LEDs have been around for a long time. How many years do you recall seeing those annoying red lights on your electronics? But it took the creation of the Blue LED light wave though to be able to create the LED Lighting that is going to change the way we see things. No Mercury. Energy efficient. Long lasting. Durable. Everything we want a lightbulb to be.

Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano of Japan and Shuji Nakamura of the University of California, Santa Barbara, were honored for their work with light-emitting diodes, cited as the lighting source of the 21st century.

Clearly we have elected to congress some idiots when it comes to dealing with and discussing the issue(s) of climate change.
