Trampling Whistle-blowers Thursday

1a - Copy

From weakening vehicle emissions to blocking warnings about how coastal parks could flood or the impact on the Arctic, the Trump administration is accused of muzzling climate science.

Here six whistleblowers and former government scientists describe being sidelined by the administration – and why they won’t be quiet.

    Off to Fallon in a couple hours, crossing the summit on a bike might be a bit of a challenge with spotty rain showers and possibly snow expected, not fun on a bike, yikes! I will exercise extreme caution as always.

    Sun mixed with clouds. One surveyor states that Bellingham is the best college town in Washington state.

      We can say it, but all I say every day about all his crap is, so what. Nothing is going to happen to him or those around him. The Democrats are not using their power to put all the people like Lewandowski in their place. Everyone is scoffing at the hearings because they know they can get away with ignoring subpoenas, or going to the hearing and sassing the congressman, and not answering any of their questions.

      The Democrats aren’t going to do anything, so we’ll remain doomed.

    So, Carol,…reunion report? How’d it go?

    You’ve been a trooper, above and beyond, ensuring good care for Jill’s pups.

    Hope they brought you back some 100 year old single malt Scotch in thanks. Haha! Or at minimum, some haggis. Spelling???

    It went well. Brian’s mother picked them up and her car died at the airport so they came home in a rental.

    Mom left right away, I hung around for an hour or so, the three of us sitting outside with a beer. They loved Scotland, but didn’t find anything very interesting in Amsterdam. College town, lots of drug stores and prostitution, that was about it. They also thought their trip was a tad too long at 18 days. They felt they could have headed home on the 15th day.

    Jill gave me a marijuana leaf clip about 2 or 3 inches in diameter, it says “Amsterdam” on the bottom, lol. Have to find the perfect place for it.

    They’re VERY happy to be home. Jill came over to pick up her car and said it was so nice to be home. Lots of walks with the dogs, putzing around the house, doing homey things. I’m going to ask them weeks down the road how they feel. European countries make sure people get lengthy vacations, to unwind, so they will be better workers, happier workers. I’ll ask Jill and Brian how they’re feeling about their normal routines after the long vacation.

    Den, you said you closed on a house. Is there a link to real estate so I can look at the pictures of the place?

It rained in Verdi, NV and up the hill in Truckee, CA, fingers went numb at Donner pass, brrrr, it’s cold up there! 190 miles altogether from Lovelock to Auburn. the van ran flawlessly there with a load of junk and a bike on the back.

    Beer now.
