Right-wing think-tank: Lawsuit against Obama likely an epic fail
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 12:43:00 -0400

Boehner & Obama in the Oval OfficeThe Heritage Foundation, one of Washington?s preeminent right-wing think tanks, has a reputation for pulling no punches when it comes to going after President Obama. So if you are a Republican, and the Heritage Foundation is warning you that your political strategy may be a little too aggressive, you might want to listen. It?s not clear though, that the message is getting through to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). Last week, a pair of Heritage Legal fellows examined Boehner?s proposal to sue President Obama over his alleged failure to faithfully enforce U.S. law and concluded that, as a legal matter, the case will face ?what may prove to be an insurmountable hurdle? over the legal concept of standing.

New telescope to seek pollution as sign of extraterrestrial life
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:53:50 -0400

Alien Smog: How Pollution Could Help Locate E.T.In the search for life beyond Earth, astronomers should look for signs of pollution in the atmospheres of alien planets outside the Earth's solar system, a new study says. The next-generation James Webb Space Telescope, which is set to launch in 2018, could hunt for worlds harboring alien life by sniffing their atmospheres for chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), greenhouse gases that destroy ozone in the Earth's atmosphere. Of course, to very advanced civilizations, Earth's own greenhouse gases might signal a primitive world, the scientists said. "We consider industrial pollution as a sign of intelligent life, but perhaps civilizations more advanced than us, with their own SETI programs, will consider pollution as a sign of unintelligent life since it's not smart to contaminate your own air," study leader Henry Lin, a student at Harvard University, said in a statement.
