What global warming means

CNBC, by Alex Rosenberg    Original Article

A recent report released by the White House, the National Climate Assessment Report, says the effects of climate change are already being experienced across the United States. And according to one commodities expert, global warming has turned up the heat on agriculture prices—which could be leading to higher costs at the grocery store. "More than 80 percent of the temperature rise has occurred since 1980, and with that has come some price increases," wrote Jodie Gunzberg, global head of commodities at S&P Dow Jones Indices. Zeroing in on the S&P GSCI Agriculture index, she finds that it has increased by

In testimony before a Senate committee on Thursday, Fed Chair Yellen said a minimum wage increase would likely have some negative effects on jobs, though it´s not clear how large. Still, boosting the federal minimum wage, which has remained at $7.25 per hour since mid-2009, would benefit some people, she added. In recent months, the federal minimum wage has been a hot-button issue. In February, President Barack Obama boosted the minimum pay for federal contractors hired in the future to $10.10 per hour. He´s also voiced his support for the federal level for all workers to rise to $10.10 from

Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, referencing the Congressional Budget Office´s long-term budget projections, told the Joint Economic Committee of Congress today that under current policies the federal government’s deficits “will rise to unsustainable levels.” In the 10-year budget projections it released in April, the CBO estimated that the federal government will run $7.618 trillion in deficits from 2015 through 2024. (Snip) If that projection holds up, the federal debt held by the public in 2024 would be more than four times the $5.035 trillion federal debt held by the public at the end of 2007.

Carbondale - Who ever said Carbondale wasn’t exciting? According to Movoto.com, Carbondale is the sixth most exciting city in Illinois. Movoto said on its website it chose to analyze the 100 most populous places in the state, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. (Snip) Randy Nelson, editor of the Movoto Real Estate Blog said Carbondale ranked high on the list because it came in first in the amount of young population. “Carbondale placed highly because of the large percentage of its population that is between 18 and 34 years of age, something we feel contributes to a place being exciting,” Nelson said.

The U.S. government lost $11.2 billion on its bailout of General Motors, more than the $10.3 billion the Treasury Department estimated when it sold its remaining GM shares in December, according to a government report released on Wednesday. The $11.2 billion loss includes a write-off in March of the government´s remaining $826 million investment in "old" GM, the quarterly report by a Treasury watchdog said. The U.S. government spent about $50 billion to bail out GM. As a result of the company´s 2009 bankruptcy, the government´s investment was converted to a 61 percent equity stake in the Detroit-based automaker, plus

She was purported to have killed at least twice avenging murdered friends, the first time when she was just 14. After she herself was killed on April 11, an array of disturbing photos appeared on Instagram of her brandishing a variety

The town of Trout River, N.L., is facing a ticking time bomb of noxious gasses as a massive whale carcass rots away on the town’s shoreline. But despite concerns that the body is filling with methane gas and could eventually burst, the community appears to be facing the problem alone. The body of a blue whale washed up on shore over the weekend, believed to be one of nine endangered animals recently killed in a field of heavy ice off the coast of Newfoundland. Residents may find the presence of the great beast somewhat interesting now, but the longer the

GREELEY – Several Montfort Elementary School students were suspended Tuesday after school officials discovered they were selling and trading stolen, loose-leaf marijuana and edible forms of the drug at school. "Over the past two days, we have had two separate incidents of students bringing marijuana into our school, both in the form of loose-leaf marijuana and an edible form of the drug," Principal Jennifer Sheldon wrote in a letter to parents. On Monday, a fourth-grade student brought loose-leaf marijuana to school and sold it to three other students. A student who could not afford to purchase the loose-leaf marijuana brought an edible

Washington - Secretary of State John Kerry attested Tuesday to the massively complex challenges Washington faces in Ukraine, Russia, Iran and the Middle East, declaring "it was easier" during the Cold War. In a candid moment during a State Department speech, the top US diplomat said changing global power dynamics made a quaint memory of the early East-West stalemate, when American children would "crouch under our desks at school and practice" safety steps for a possible nuclear attack. "During the Cold War... it was easier than it is today -- simpler is maybe a way to put it," Kerry

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said he would strive to be like Lyndon Johnson, the Democrat famous for expanding the U.S. welfare state through the "Great Society," if he were elected president. According to the Miami Herald, Bush made those comments Wednesday night in San Antonio, Florida at Saint Leo University, while speaking about education, immigration, and energy policy. Bush did not address Johnson´s Great Society and War on Poverty programs, about which Ronald Reagan once famously quipped, "We had a war on poverty, and poverty won." Instead, he was referencing Johnson´s mastery of the

A State Department official told a Senate hearing on terrorism in Nigeria this morning that “Boko Haram is trying to portray its philosophy as being a Muslim philosophy, and that’s just not accurate.” Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on African Affairs Chairman Chris Coons (D-Del.) referenced a hearing that he held two years ago, in which lawmakers learned that Boko Haram was training with Al-Shabaab and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in an area the size of Texas. “The hearing that we conducted two years ago could almost literally be repeated today in terms of ongoing structural challenges that have led

In 2011, Peter Gibson, a professor of gastroenterology at Monash University and director of the GI Unit at The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, published a study that found gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, rye, and barley, to cause gastrointestinal distress in patients without celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder unequivocally triggered by gluten. Double-blinded, randomized, and placebo-controlled, the experiment was one of the strongest pieces of evidence to date that non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), more commonly known as gluten intolerance, is a genuine condition. By extension, the study also lent credibility to the meteoric rise of the gluten-free

CONCORD, N.H. — Some residents of a predominantly white New Hampshire town are upset with racist remarks a police commissioner made about President Barack Obama. Resident Jane O´Toole said she overheard Wolfeboro Police Commissioner Robert Copeland use a racial slur in describing Obama. And in an email to her, Copeland, who is white, acknowledged using the N-word in referring to the president and said he will not apologize. "I believe I did use the ´N´ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in an excerpt from an email he sent to his fellow police commissioners

Eric Shinseki’s troubles began with a "Patton" video. Now the secretary of Veterans Affairs is facing charges that veterans are needlessly dying on his watch as the head of the largest civilian agency in the federal government. Scandals have cascaded over Shinseki and the VA since the Washington Examiner revealed in August 2012 that $50,000 in taxpayer money was spent to produce a pair of video parodies that came to define the lavish spending at the two Veterans Affairs training conferences in Orlando. Those conferences cost taxpayers about $6.1 million, of which as much as $762,000 was squandered on useless baubles like tote
