I'm a busy man. Between a full-time job as an environmental scientist, a multitude of hobbies, and a proclivity for laziness, I often start things, but, for the reasons listed above, don't finish them. As a result, many posts I begin writing go uncompleted for long periods of time. Other posts just plain suck. For those things that I eventually do get around to completing or fixing, but may be a bit behind the current events to which they mock or critique, I have created an arbitrary category under which they will be published: The Lost Blogs. The Lost Blogs will be Christmas in July, a traffic jam when you're already late, and science in Kansas. Enjoy.

Rohrabacher cringes at the idea of comprehending science (Image).
California State Representative Dana Rohrabacher made waves last Wednesday during a House subcommittee hearing when he made questionable inquiries regarding the role of rainforests in climate change.
When questioning Tony Stern, a top U.S. climate diplomat, Rohrabacher pushed Stern to think outside the box when considering possible courses of action regarding natural greenhouse gas emissions. While cartographers have not yet made a final decision, experts theorize that the boundaries of "the box" coincidentally match the boundary between basic scientific understanding and fuzzy, irrational thought.
