Yahoo News - about 1 month
The law prohibits flying a drone with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or higher, the same as for driving a vehicle, or while drugged. The measure, which passed the Democratic-controlled state legislature earlier this month, also bars flying a drone near a prison or in pursuit of wildlife. The drone measure was among 109 bills that Christie signed into law on his last full day in office, spokesman Brian Murray said by email.

The Climate Post: Trump Executive Order Takes Focus Off Climate Change
Huffington Post - 11 months
President Donald Trump signed a long anticipated executive order greatly diminishing the role climate change plays in U.S. government decision making by directing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review the Clean Power Plan, which sets limits on carbon dioxide emissions from existing fossil-fuel fired power plants. The order directs each executive department and agency in the federal government to identify regulations, rules, policies, and guidance documents that slow or stop domestic energy production. In addition, the order also calls to review use the “social cost of carbon,” a metric for weighing the potential economic damage from climate change. Effective immediately, it instructs federal officials to use the 2003 Office of Management and Budget guidance “when monetizing the value of changes in greenhouse gas emissions resulting from regulations, including with respect to the consideration of domestic versus international impacts and the consideration of app...

From candles to LEDs, a quick look at Christmas lights’ past
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Nowadays just the thought of putting candles on a Christmas tree would almost be enough to set off the smoke alarms, but that wasn’t always the case. In 1832, Harvard professor Charles Follen brought the Christmas tree tradition to the U.S. when he decorated a fir with candles for a party at his Cambridge home. The German native recreated his homeland’s tradition and kept a sponge nearby in case of accidents. Indeed, one of the decorative dolls did get a bit singed, according to the Harvard University Gazette. The effect may have been beautiful, but candles and trees are too much of a hazard (and a hassle) to be a viable option. Christmas lights needed to go electric. Fast forward to 1880, when the Christmas tree craze was in full swing, thanks in part to Queen Victoria’s suggestion that German-born Prince Albert decorate a tree in 1848. Thomas Edison wired up a half-mile of Menlo Park with his recent invention, incandescent lamps. Train passengers between New York and Philadelphia we...

The Climate Post: Tough Issues Linger in New Climate Deal Draft
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Climate negotiators at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in Paris have until Friday to reach a global deal to curb greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the most serious climate change impacts. Negotiators released a new, shorter draft of that deal. The 29-page document leaves some major sticking points unresolved, including whether to reduce overall global temperatures 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels or 2 degrees Celsius, who shoulders the cost of moving to a low-carbon economy and how often nations should review their emissions reduction plans. "On these issues I ask you to scale up your consultations to speedily come to compromise solutions," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told conference delegates. "We've made progress but still a lot of work remains to be done. Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed." Many of the countries supporting a 1.5 degree Celsius target are arguing that rich but still developing economies -- among them, B...

The Climate Post: Sticking Points for the Paris Climate Talks
Huffington Post - about 2 years
At the Paris climate talks, where ministers are hammering out an international deal to curb climate change, two huge debates remain unresolved: the long-term global warming target and the amount and nature of finance that will flow to poor countries, a debate that hinges on differentiation of developing country and developed country responsibilities. "Whether the text will also take into account a very justifiable request from the most vulnerable countries to improve on those efforts, it remains to be seen how that is going to be handled," said United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres. "It wouldn't surprise me if there is a recognition of the intense vulnerability of some nations." It's about Money and Temperature Goals Brian Murray, director of the Environmental Economics Program at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, writes from the climate talks in Paris. The central objective of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN...

Bill Murray Got Taken Down A Peg By Andy Warhol At The Best Party He Ever Crashed
Huffington Post - over 2 years
In his Reddit AMA on Wednesday, longtime Hollywood insider Bill Murray shared some stories about the role that got away (in Peter Weir's "The Year of Living Dangerously"), working with Wes Anderson ("he loves to eat") and why he'd want to be on "Flavor of Love," Flavor Flav's short-lived reality series ("really nutty"). But this one story takes the cake. In the '70s, Murray wrote, he crashed an event "called the subway party," thrown for the premiere of "Tommy," a musical film starring Ann-Margret, Oliver Reed and The Who's Roger Daltrey. Murray explained: It was Gilda Radner, Belushi, Harold Ramis, Joe Flaherty, Brian Doyle Murray, and we were all plus 1, probably. It was biggest party ever in NYC at the time. You couldn't get into this party. It was an inner circle thing. It was at an enclosed subway stop, it was a roar. It was a scream. If you made an airport movie with everyone on the plane is a celebrity, it was like that times 10. We were doing a show in the restaura...
