Rubio may face probe into luxury home lease

California's campaign watchdog agency may investigate whether former state Sen. Michael Rubio (D-Shafter) is getting a special break on his home payments from a campaign supporter.

"We have received a complaint and are in the process of reviewing it to determine whether or not we will open an investigation," wrote Gary Winuk, the chief of the enforcement division of the Fair Political Practices Commission on Thursday.

There are individuals who study climate, but there are no defined criteria for certifying "climatologists." The "professional experts" are self-proclaimed.

You're only on the email list because you voluntarily provided your email address. The information that you receive is directly related to your unemployment benefits and is not political.

Cheer up. The emails will stop after 10 weeks. You would know this if you could read and comprehend.

My benefits ended two years ago!!!!!!!!!! And well yes if you file your bi-weekly benefits by the web and not by telephone or by old fashion mail, yes your on the mailing list. So my question is this, why is it before republicans took over office in PA I never once was sent Democratic propaganda spam emails,never once? as i stated i not one of the two molds,even if i have the brain to know republicans are the scum of the earth, they can't answer a question but try and to defuse it with moronic wit. So yes i can read and comprehend, so why you defend your party I assume,your going to tell me that what they are doing this by using taxpayers money to spread the propaganda they do and it is legal and ok? i have already researched a little bit and did my own homework, and well learned that taxpayers money can not be used ever to promote or spread ones party's view. i mean if you like i could post the lengthy statue and article that states all these legal terms, but would you be able to fully read and comprehend it?
See for me, I'm all about equal rights. I don't need to belong and feel like I'm standing beside others. I do my own homework, and when I need help i will ask for it, as I did. But I will never blindly stand there and defend something in the name of ignorance that I have no clue if I'm rite or wrong, you clearly just did that. now you see whats wrong with this country?
You jumped the gun and why???/, all because you read my 1st few words that said Republican propaganda with taxpayer money ????? as i said i don't take sides, i am the scarlet letter when it comes to political mumbo jumbo, but honestly you just blindly stood up fo5r something you have no fact and info on, and in the name of what? Now see once more, why the country fucked, you add a few million more like you, throw a bible in there hand and program them, you have man made robots.

You do not need to provide an email address to file for bi-weekly benefits on-line.

Why are you defending this, when you know what they are doing is wrong? And yes i had to provide a email when filing my benefoiets online, when i set my claim before any paycheck. Whats your catch, like we going to debate this or you will always avoid the fact with UN-educated assumptions? I mean sorry could play this game all day long and i would win in the end. mark my words, already contacted the media on this with all the facts, all the proof, all the laws, and well i'm sure it will be one of those blurps, but i got a wild card. recall this message, recall it, recall it.

LMAO! I haven't heard this particular argument before.

I guess if you discredit all scientists as "self-proclaimed", then you are free to believe whatever you like because you've eliminated objective authority on scientific issues.

That's very convenient for maintaining a radical and destructive political ideology. But not very helpful if you want to accurately perceive the world and reality.

Your choice, I guess. I believe I'll stick with the reality-based universe, thanks.

Climatologists may earn professional certification through the American Meteorological Society. Certification is open to climatologists who meet educational requirements, have at least five years experience and pass an exam.

It may seem like an email address is required, but it is not.

But knock yourself out if this is of critical importance to you.

LOL! If you don't even know the difference between climate and weather, it's no wonder you believe there's legitimate scientific controversy regarding man-made global warming - you are embarrassingly uninformed/misinformed about climate and climate change.

Okay.

So?

99% of climate scientists acknowledge man-made global warming. No scientific body of national or international standing disagrees with man-made global warming. Your list of 15 names means nothing in light of that.

Why Climate Deniers Have No Scientific Credibility - In One Pie Chart

I searched the Web of Science for peer-reviewed scientific articles published between 1 January 1991 and 9 November 2012 that have the keyword phrases "global warming" or "global climate change." The search produced 13,950 articles.
...
24 of the 13,950 articles, 0.17% or 1 in 581, clearly reject global warming or endorse a cause other than CO2 emissions for observed warming.

----------

24 of 13,950 peer-reviewed scientific articles.

So, sure you can list 15 names. BFD.

That doesn't change the fact that there is that nearly 100% of all scientists agree that the earth is warming and that human activities are the cause.
