The Truth of Mar-a-Lago, Solar Roofs and Transparent Frogs
27th June 2017
Bella Postcard: our weekly micro blog, a (very) random ‘best of the web’ brought to you by Bonnie Gallagher.
The New York Times, [whose readership Trump has single-handedly boosted this last year] has a handy feature – all of the President’s Lies compiled into one space HERE. From “JAN. 21 “I wasn’t a fan of Iraq. I didn’t want to go into Iraq.” to the pathetic JAN. 25 “Now, the audience was the biggest ever. But this crowd was massive. Look how far back it goes. This crowd was massive.” From the self-deception of MAY 4 “Nobody cares about my tax return except for the reporters” to the self-deluded JUNE 21 “Right now, we are one of the highest-taxed nations in the world.”

The NY Times says: “Trump achieved something remarkable: He said something untrue, in public, every day for the first 40 days of his presidency. The streak didn’t end until March 1. Since then, he has said something untrue on at least 74 of 113 days. On days without an untrue statement, he is often absent from Twitter, vacationing at The Tin Florida, or busy golfing.”
In other news Boing Boing tells us that scientists have discovered a transparent frog.
Also, and in no way related, some good news for fellow eco-tech-geeks out there […there are fellow eco-tech-geeks out there, right?]
Tesla has become famous for its game-changing storage devices for renewable energy, its charismatic chief Elon Musk and for creating ‘solar roof panels’ that could be/will be transformative for energy needs. But they now have a rival in Forward Labs “chromatic layered” one-piece roof:
“Tesla gets all the attention lately when it comes to solar roofs, but start-up Forward Labs has been hammering away at their own solar roof technology – and not only is it 33% cheaper that Tesla’s offering, but it can be installed in half of the time. ” More here.
