In fact, they allowed him to make copy of the hard drive of one of the NASA computers.

Great news: the EPA’s new smog rules will only cost 40 times as much as they said
We recently discovered that EPA chief Gina McCarthy is coming for your air conditioners because she’s pretty worried about ozone. (We’ll leave aside for now the fact that the chemicals used in modern air conditioners don’t affect that particular issue.)

This is an expensive proposition for American businesses and consumers and the agency admitted up front that the new rules would probably wind up costing us roughly one and a half billion a year.
The surprisingly close connection between Roman theories about elephants’ knees and today’s climate change warriors
