The distinction between weather and climate becomes critical in understanding global warming. Think of weather as a single datum point and climate as a large collection of those data. Better yet, think of weather as a one-night stand. Then climate would be raising the kid resulting from that night for the next two decades.
Like at a family reunion, the infighting at this year's CPAC started long before anybody arrived. First, the group American Atheists announced that it would be sponsoring a booth at the conference, with the goal of bringing conservative nonbelievers "out of the closet."

I issue a challenge to the Mark Zuckerbergs, Donald Trumps and Phil Knights of the world: Will you step up to the plate and help children with cancer at least take a swing?

I'd like to think that if you knew Alec Baldwin personally he'd come across a pretty good guy, someone you actually might like to have a beer with. In reality I don't think there's even a remote chance that this is true.
The Tea Party in particular, judging by the words and actions of many in this radical right-wing faction, seem sickened by the fact that a black man lives in the White House.
Reality TV stars are like the "dollar store" of celebrities. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. I like dollar stores.
Within minutes of Massive Attack V Adam Curtis beginning at the Park Avenue Armory, where it plays through Friday (October 4), I suspected it was goin...
What would it look like to enroll hedge fund managers, bank CEOs, and their kind in a version of workfare for the wealthy? After all, they have seized the vast majority of their wealth in this country not because of their "works" or their merit so much as their "wealth."
Whether Trump University actually taught anything of value is for the court to decide, but here are some valuable lessons you can take away from it without signing up for a single class.
