Massive Crater Discovered Under Greenland Ice

NASA Goddard — In a remote area of northwest Greenland, an international team of scientists has made a stunning discovery, buried beneath a kilometer of ice. It’s a meteor impact crater, 300 meters deep and bigger than Paris or the Beltway around Washington, DC. It is one of the 25 largest known impact craters on Earth, and the first found under any of our planet’s ice sheets. The researchers first spotted the crater in July 2015, while they were inspecting a new map of the topography beneath Greenland’s ice sheet that used ice-penetrating radar data primarily from Operation IceBridge, an ongoing NASA airborne mission to track changes in polar ice, and earlier NASA airborne missions in Greenland.

Supervolcanoes in the Pacific Northwest

I wasn’t sure my abbreviated attention span could handle an hour-ten lecture, but I have a special appreciation for geology, and this fellow keeps the lecture lively.

Losing the View

It wasn’t easy, but I did watch the entire clip. Whoopie is nuts; everything she says is nuts. Ignoring that…

Joy! She’s living in a lunatic asylum world of her own. Starting at 0:33:

“The one thing about Trump is that he didn’t think he was going to win. And he didn’t care whether he won or not. He was just interested in promoting his businesses, really, through the Presidency.” [Joy almost looks like she was choking on that hairball.]

I remember so well, it was Joe Dan Gormon’s Intellectual Froglegs, back during the campaign, that convinced me, Trump is never in anything to lose; he’s in it to win it. Hit me like a bucket of ice water: Oh! Right! So much winning since, too. Joy’s an idiot.

Our Battle Of Britain

Been too long since we’ve heard from the acerbic Mr Condell, but worth waiting for.

Pat Condell — The UK’s parliament needs to be hosed clean. Our freedom and democracy are being destroyed by corrupt politicians. We are custodians of this democracy, not its owners. We have no right to weaken it for future generations, any more than we have the right to leave them poisoned water or air.

The European Union is a model for an anti-democratic global government. The purpose of the EU is to destroy the nation state and to transform Europe from a rich and diverse continent of sovereign nations into a single homogenous political bloc governed by a committee of unelected bureaucrats who think they know best. And they think we’re so docile and thick that we’ll just roll over and accept it if they keep telling us how sensible it is.

Nobody’s feelings were consulted during the making of this video. Anyone who has a problem with that can drop dead.
