Changes Inside the Beltway

For John, BLUFSomeone noted that The Old Gray Lady attributed the current cold snap (2º this AM) to global warming.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This is by Mr Francis Menton, published in the blog, Manhattan Contrarian. The author plays off of the currently announced nominations in the upcoming Trump Administration,  and off of the idea that not everyone thinks the "science is settled".

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  We won't know if Mr Trump is the President Elect until Monday, and maybe not even then.
  There is some confusion in the media between nominated and appointed.  Those who are nominated are reviewed and approved by the Senate.  Those who are appointed, like the National Security Advisor (for example, retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn if it is Mr Trump) move right into their position, without a review on Capitol Hill.
  If it is science, is it ever settled?
