Comments 1 to 3:

  1. If one cyclone hitting Yemen was "rare," what word can express how weird it is that two are hitting that war torn country within a week of each other--after nearly a hundred years without any?!

  2. How remarkable is the fact theat on Nov 2, TransCanada asked Obama to suspend review of Keystone XL, as opposed to pressing him to review and approve for several leading years. They wanted the review to be held in Jan 2017 when Obama’s term will be over. No comment necessary: they new the rejection was coming.

    IMO, the rejection is just symbolic if any of Rep candidates - hardcore science deniers - will succeed Obama. Then Transcanada will not hesitate to reapply for this time an assured permit. Our only hope is that Hillary wins, then after next 4 or 8 years the issue may become irrelevant when e.g. declining renewable prices render Keystone XL uneconomic & obsolete.
