  1. I just wish one of those kids would be smart enough and brave enough to ask him about the outing of the CIA operative in Afghanistan. Ooops!

    • Check out what the EPA is announcing on Tuesday:

      Washington Times: EPA’s next target in fight against climate change: cooking stoves

      U.S. fight against climate change moves into the kitchen

      The Obama administration’s war on climate change may soon be moving inside the kitchen.

      Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy is set to unveil Tuesday six federal grants to universities to fund research on clean cooking-stove technology.

      The announcement will put the EPA’s resources squarely behind a United Nations’ quest for cleaner burning stoves and an end to deadly cooking pollution.

      “This research will help to improve air quality, protect public health and slow climate change,” the EPA said in explaining why the agency chief will preside over the announcement Tuesday.

      To make the case for why these grants are so important, EPA noted the World Health Organization estimates that exposure to smoke from traditional cookstoves and open pit fires leads to 4.3 million premature deaths each year.

      The fact is, though, most of the problem lives far from the shores of the U.S., where most Americans have modern gas and electric stoves.

      Rather, the target of this research are the 3 billion people, mostly in the developing world, who still cook using solid fuels like wood, crop wastes, charcoal, coal and dung in open fires or leaky stoves, according to the World Health Organization.

      WHO’s own website acknowledges most of the cookstoves that are the problems are in poor countries.

      The grants are certain to hearten those worried about the health of women in developing countries affected by primitive stoves. But they could also renew a debate back in Washington why an agency charged with protecting Americans from pollution is focused on a problem that is far more prevalent off U.S. shores.
      =====================

      It appears to be just another excuse to give more of our tax dollars away to liberal universities for more useless, unnecessary “studies”. Yet another scam.

  2. New week, same old lightweight BS schedule:

    On Tuesday, the President will host the 2014 White House Science Fair and celebrate the student winners of a broad range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) competitions from across the country. The President will also announce new steps as part of his Educate to Innovate campaign, an all-hands-on-deck effort to get more girls and boys inspired to excel and to provide the support they need to succeed in these vital subjects.

    On Wednesday, the President travel to West Point, New York to deliver the commencement address at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

    On Thursday, the President will host a summit at the White House on youth sports safety and concussions, where he will be joined by stakeholders, including young athletes, parents, coaches, experts, professional athletes, and military servicemembers. At the White House Healthy Kids and Safe Sports Concussion Summit, the President will announce new commitments by both the public and private sectors to raise awareness about how to identify, treat and prevent concussions, and conduct additional research in the field of sports-related concussions that will help us better address these problems.

    On Friday, the President will attend a hurricane preparedness meeting at FEMA Headquarters.

    • Yeah, Sam Kass was one of Barry’s golfing partners on Saturday. These pikers are crafting national policy. It’s shameful and pathetic.

    • She can fuss and fidget all she wants, the MSM can spin this as a rebuke of her personally, but Congress is just responding to the cry for help from the students who have to eat the food, and the local school administrators who have to find a way to pay for food the kids won’t eat.

      She’s going to sound like a witchy harrigan who won’t hear of any complaints about her project.
      If she was smart, (ha ha), she’d just back off and be quiet.

  3. Science Fair…groan. Oh, I am all for science fairs and kids into robotics and math marathons and all, but haven’t we seen this movie…Something about lobbing balls out of something…and then even revisiting the ball lobbing kid a yr later to see what else he had up his sleeve? The fake smile, on, off, on, off–the quick gotta go.
