Rep. Joe Barton or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Carbon Dioxide

“I would also point out that CO2, carbon dioxide, is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term. … I am creating it as I talk to you. It’s in your Coca-Cola, you’re Dr. Pepper, your Perrier water. It is necessary for human life. It is odorless, colorless, tasteless, does not cause cancer, does not cause asthma.” - Rep. Joe Barton

Rachel's Animated Crocodile

My four year old daughter Rachel makes "cards" where she folds a piece of paper in half, draws on the inside and the outside, and often signs her name on the back. Yesterday she had made a card and was flipping it open and closed, watching the crocodile open and close its mouth. Her first animation!

You can find more of her wonderful drawings at Rachel Draws A Lot.
