New Climate Models Being Developed Since climate research affects many of the bills that come before the General

Court I have taken time to examine much of the “noise” associated with climate change theory. Perhaps the best line I have found is: Climate Change – unstoppable.” [ Every_1,500_Years] Tat is a truism of magnitude because the climate of the earth changes, constantly. Perhaps not in our life time nor over a millennia, but it does change. Te Roman Empire expanded to the extent of wine production, and retracted as Scotland became cooler. Eric the Red saw green pastures on Greenland and recently ancient Viking settlements were, albeit briefly, exposed on the glacial island. Tere are some in Concord who refuse to look at reality; that the vaunted computer models for global temperature have not been verified with real data, only predictions. Tere is far too much to say on the topic in a short letter, but I would urge

readers to take a moment and read this rather clear discussion: http://www. Te earth is far too complex to be reduced to a computer model of what may happen if this happens or if something else may possible occasionally... Factual data is clear from a multitude of sources: Researchers at NASA have difficulties with data (http://; Researchers at East Anglia University lied (Email gate); Te Mann Teorem (hockey stick) is not verified by ice core samples (it was warmer in the dark ages than now); current data is taken from improperly placed recording stations (average temperature data from a station next to a reflecting parking lot is valid?). All I can say is rather than vilify a person for their opinion based by fact

and analysis perhaps a little reason interferes. Should we consider this http:// has-been-proven-wrong.html#.U1Pm8qKhzw0. “Te crucial point is that our modern civilisation (English spelling) has been built on the basis of the prevailing climate and sea levels. As these change, it will cause major problems.” Climate Change has happened and will happen and humans adapt, to but cannot control that change.

Speaker Terie Norelli Will Not Seek Re-Election

submitted by the NH House of Representatives In a press conference at 1 p.m. on Monday, April 21, Speaker Terie Norelli discussed

her decision not to seek re-election this fall. Remarks, as prepared: “Eighteen years ago, Martha Fuller Clark asked me to run for the legislature, though

my husband may never forgive her for it. After weeks of conversation, I said I would “try it” for two years. Thank you, Martha, for the push. And thank you to my first Speaker, Donna Sytek, my first committee chair and

ranking members, Jeb Bradley and Clif Below, and to my first Democratic Leader, Peter Burling. Each of them encouraged me and offered me opportunities to grow. Those opportunities ultimately led to my having the honor of presiding as Speaker

of the first Democratic majority in the New Hampshire House in 84 years and the first back-to-back Democratic majority in New Hampshire history. It has been both a challenging (think herding cats) and a rewarding experience. Thank you for asking, Martha. I did give it “a try.” In fact, eighteen years of trying ... ... to defend reproductive rights. ... to protect our state’s mountains, trees and lakes. ... to fight for working Granite Staters, their families and our communities. ... to ensure economic and social justice for all our citizens. And, we had many successes. As Speaker, I had the tremendous privilege of presiding over

the passage of Civil Unions and then one term later, Marriage Equality. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to preserve and protect

New Hampshire’s great beauty, including implementing RGGI, the regional greenhouse gas initiative. Our work on these issues ensures that our scenic views, our clean air and clean water will continue to be enjoyed by generations to come, and will continue to drive our state’s economy. We finally ended the education lawsuits, established statewide

Kindergarten, and lowered the high school dropout rate. We worked hard to deliver Justice Reinvestment, improving public safety and decreasing costs to taxpayers. We eliminated the Developmental Disabilities waitlist. We expanded health care access by allowing children under

26 to stay on their parent’s insurance - a few years before the Affordable Care Act made that a national policy. And we expanded health care access once again - just a few

weeks ago - giving 50,000 Granite Staters access to desperately needed care. In a budget that garnered broad bipartisan support in both

chambers of the legislature this session, we restored essential investments in our communities, including re-establishing a CHINS program and moving forward on the Mental Health plan. And we did it with decorum, respect and transparency. I am so gratified by all that we have accomplished for the

people of New Hampshire in the time I have been a state representative. Now I feel that it’s time for me to step back and catch my

breath - and give my family a break, too. So I am announcing today that I will not be running for re-election this fall. I am incredibly proud of the time I’ve spent here and I am

honored to have had the opportunities I’ve had. Most of all, I’m humbled by the people I’ve met and with whom I’ve worked throughout this journey. I believe our Democratic caucus has some amazing talent

waiting in the wings, and I will be leaving the House, your House, in good hands. The fight doesn’t end today. We have more work to complete

this session. We have an election to win this fall. Though I will not be running for the House myself, I am committed to work hard over the coming months to insure that for the second time in New Hampshire history, Democrats will hold the majority in consecutive terms. We know what the alternative looks like. We must win for

the people of New Hampshire in order to preserve the gains we have made restoring investments in our communities. To ensure equality continues to be as real in our laws as it is in our hearts. To protect our state’s clean air and boundless beauty. To defend working families and minorities across this great state. To guarantee that women have access to the full range of reproductive health care.”
