Where did everybody go?


Houston, LA named top CO2 polluters

Los Angeles County, home to car-clogged highways and about 4 million people, emitted nearly 18.6 million tons, said researchers from Purdue University, Colorado State University and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, who led the project.

The article claims the population of Los Angeles County is 4 million. However, in 2006 the population was ~9,948,081. Sorry for being a stickler but the numbers seemed significant… did they all leave?


No, they’re all still there. We corrected our story: GBU Editor

Young PA voters might have taken a “shine” to Obama, but, senior citizens, blue collar workers, Catholics, white women, families w/household income under $100,000, unions, Jews, non-college graduates all preferred Hillary Clinton and voted that way. A lot of comments have been made in the USA MSM that the voters in PA were racists!! I agree, 90% to 92% of the black voters voted for Obama.
