Attorney General Tom Reilly says global warming is harming the state’s environment on a daily basis - an argument his office presented to the Supreme Court yesterday as part of a landmark lawsuit to force the government to regulate new vehicle emissions.

“Every day that goes by we’re losing more of our shoreline,” Reilly said last night. “We can’t pretend global warming is not happening when it is happening.”

Witchcraft

Day care sexual abuse hysteria was a phenomenon of the 1980s involving false accusations of sexual abuse. A prominent case in Kern County, California, created a panic, which lasted for almost a decade. The Kern county case began a wave of copycat accusations that started in California and spread throughout the United States, as well as to Canada, New Zealand and some European countries. Some elements of the witch hunts of the 1600s and the red scare of the 1950s have parallels in the sex abuse hysteria. Those who oppose the hunt are then themselves accused, or those that are accused must name others involved to be given leniency.

Clowns and Robots

"...The children told fantastic stories which included: being abused by a clown and a robot in a secret room..."

Is Tom Reilly going to butress his global warming case with clowns and robots? They failed to win him the Democratic Massachusetts Governor's nomination, but made him AG.
