A Bad Example of Trying to Explain Climate Change to Deniers

This video titled “Tucker Carlson DESTROYS Liberal Cal State Professor 1/4/17” popped up in my suggested videos on YouTube and because I wanted to procrastinate some more, I clicked on it.

Ohio promotes pseudoscience and harms its most vulnerable women by banning abortions at 20 weeks

I provided scientific testimony against South Carolina’s 20-week [Read More…]
