Comments Off on Senate votes in favor of Keystone XL, Obama maintains threat to veto

The U.S. Senate voted 62-36 in favor of the highly-contested Keystone XL pipeline on Thursday (1/29), with nine Democrats joining Republicans to show support for the $8 billion project that would transport 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada’s Tar Sands to the Gulf Coast. Following the vote, the Obama administration reiterated their stance that they will veto any bill that looks to expedite approval for Keystone XL, instead opting to wait for U.S. State Department to complete its investigation as to whether or not the pipeline is in national interests.

Comments Off on Meteorologist Snaps First Photo of Rare Quadruple Rainbow

Photo: Courtesy of Michael Theusner For those of us who’ve had the giddy fortune of seeing a double rainbow, apparently there’s even bigger surprises in nature — the quadruple rainbow. Also called a “fourth-order” or quaternary rainbow, this rare and elusive phenomenon (along with “third-order” or tertiary rainbows) has only been reported a handful of times in the last 250 years.
