Something to Know - June 22

Signe Wilkinson

1.  This is about the "Climate Change/Global Warming" issue.   However, this is not Bill McKibben preaching to the choir kind of stuff.   This is an op-ed by a member of the Republican Party (not the GeeOpie), who is a Harvard educated, Big Wall Street Goldman Sachs Scion, who was a Secretary of the Treasury under Shrub the 43rd.   This is what is needed to get movement going to affect change in public policy to meet the challenges of our deteriorating environment.   By explaining that it is a "conservative" effort, and that his party should get on board immediately.  This is preaching to the sinners.  Hopefully it works, or we are doomed:

2.  This article is about the world of Big-time Hacking.  The kind that does bad stuff with your privacy and financial affairs.   It can be the small potatoes on individual desk-top devices, or the stuff that invades bankers and secret government strategies or weapons systems.   Sure, it is serious stuff, but this reads like a video game of Super Mario Brothers or Spy vs. Spy:

The trouble with born-again Christians is that they are an even bigger pain the second time around.
