Business Travel with Aliens because of Global Warming

I saw mention of this USA Today article about the stress on families from frequent business travel. Reminds me of meeting a well-known cosmologist who went on and on about all his upcoming travel. I was going to say something like, "Oh, you must not have any kids." Some sense told me to hold back though, afterall there are lots of ways that could come off badly...maybe he had had trouble having kids, maybe he was gay, etc. Anyway, I later googled him, and was quite thankful I had held back. Of all the ways I could see that comment as obnoxious, I missed the most obvious...he has kids! (In other words, I would have been saying he was an absentee father who cared nothing for his family).

Slashdot has a post about distributed computing and SETI, seemingly saying that the SETI search is a waste of time.

Finally, I saw this last night on CNN saying that Gore got the science right in his movie An Inconvenient Truth. For a contrasting opinion, you might follow Lubos' link.
