Tomorrow evening there will be some photos about the best places to have a coffee in the district of st germain des prés in Paris. If Maher and humbert come here to visit me sometime, we'll certainly go over there.

I'm also looking forward to making a donation for Maher or usmangujjar (some bonne maman marmalade and some honey), and sending a deluxe French saucisson filled with walnuts for a regular user of the forum (like Vasudev, mdhuser, or Yoda), I just need an address.

Tonight, I'm going to hold another interesting conference about climate change...


Americans overwhelmingly believe that global warming is happening, and that carbon emissions should be scaled back. But fewer are sure that the changes will harm them personally. New data released by Yale researchers gives the most detailed view yet of public opinion on global warming.


Americans want to restrict carbon emissions from coal power plants. The White House and Congress may do the opposite.





A majority of adults in every congressional district in the nation support limiting carbon dioxide emissions from existing coal-fired power plants. But many Republicans in Congress (and some Democrats) agree with President Trump, who this week may move to kill an Obama administration plan that would have scaled back the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Nationally, about seven in 10 Americans support regulating carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants – and 75 percent support regulating CO2 as a pollutant more generally. But lawmakers are unlikely to change direction soon.

Bob Inglis, a former Republican congressman from South Carolina, warned that committed activists — like the Tea Party — can shape politicians’ approaches to issues like climate change. “Those are the ones who can take you out at the next primary,” he said. He lost his primary in 2010 to Trey Gowdy, a Tea Party candidate who attacked his climate views.








Most people know climate change is happening, and a majority agree it is harming people in the United States. But they don't believe it will harm them.

Part of this is the problem of risk perception.

Global warming is precisely the kind of threat humans are awful at dealing with: a problem with enormous consequences over the long term, but little that is sharply visible on a personal level in the short term. Humans are hard-wired for quick fight-or-flight reactions in the face of an imminent threat, but not highly motivated to act against slow-moving and somewhat abstract problems, even if the challenges that they pose are ultimately dire.

Tonight, I'm going to talk about the French presidential elections.

In France, French presidential candidate, ex-Prime Minister Francois Fillon is suspected of fraud, Le Monde newspaper reported Tuesday.
It said France's national financial prosecutor's office on March 16 gave investigators an additional written request to expand the case against Fillon and his wife in connection with suspicions of "aggravated fraud… and the use of forged documents."

Earlier this year, The Republican Party presidential candidate Francois Fillon was placed under formal investigation in connection with his wife's employment as his parliamentary assistant, which is alleged to have been fake. Fillon has repeatedly denied the allegations.


In my opinion and in this context, Marine le Pen could win the elections...but it's not likely with her obsession for an exit from the single currency.
In any case, I think that Fillon should be in jail.

Tonight, a new movie is available on the forum, titled the tag-along and released in 2015.
It’s a story about a video of a group of people going hiking and a mysterious little girl in a red dress following them.

It’s a Taiwanese movie, encoded by me and subtitled in English.

Today, the sp500 is crumbling. Actually, placid markets were masking fear that equity turmoil may loom. In this context, some investors have sought insurance against the risk of an unexpected market shock (if tramp is barking too much for example). That has propelled the CBOE's skew index, which reflects market tail risk, or the chance of a dramatic slump in the s&p 500 to its highest level since the UK left the EU on june 24th (excellent day for me with several thousand € of capital gain, btw).
That's why I'm keeping my shorts even if for the moment I still have losses.

I'm pretty sure that usman and Maher are nodding in assent.
