From ABC: "The Republican-controlled Senate acknowledged Wednesday that climate change is real but refused to say humans are to blame."

Votes are in. Most agree to the fact of climate change. Whether it is significantly man-made or not is contentious.

Bill A: "It passed 98-1 and read simply that "Climate change is real and not a hoax.""
Bill B: "that said human beings contributed to the problem fell one vote short of the 60 needed for it to be adopted". I believe this one had the poison pill attached to it.
Bill C: "The Senate was divided, 50-49, on another measure from Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, that claimed human activities "significantly" altered the climate."

Good one. Or should I say Gud1?

I had a consultant that would frequently forget his password. I finally set it to "I forgot" and gave it to him. Three weeks later, sure enough, he drops by because he can't get in. I ask him "What's your password?" and he says "I forgot". So I just looked at him. Finally he got it. No issues since then.
