Where The Source Comes From Means Something:

BRIAN SCOTT: You know, NASA’s been a big part of most of I shouldn’t say most of  but so many different scientific discoveries are a big part of evolution. GPS, so many things have come from NASA. And that’s not to say that they get to decide everything. I’m not saying that. I’m just saying where the source comes from means a lot.

I think you see a lot of people put out a YouTube video with great production value, they make their statements and, you know, that’s how they fight their side of the argument. And you’ll see data like well, you know, last year was really cold, so obviously we’re not experiencing climate change. Well, weather goes up and down. If on average it’s going up, well, yeah, there’s going to be years where it goes down. I mean, it’s not you know, it’s not that hard to comprehend, I don’t think.

But at the same time, do we ever really know? Like, science has always been kind of and I know some people who will hate this when I say this, but science has always been kind of best guess, right? You look historically, scientists have changed the world, but there’s been lots of opinions that have turned out to be wrong, right? And maybe not way wrong, but just a little bit, right?

Things like that that we need to kind of keep in mind. I don’t know how many people can look at the world and say, no, nothing’s changing, it’s not you know, like, I think it’s very obvious that there’s a lot of change in the world with weather, and if it’s not climate change, what is it? I don’t know, I haven’t really heard any other presented ideas other than, oh, this is just how it is.



Calgary police identify 15-year-old girl killed in shooting, investigation continues

Published on

Calgary (CP) – Calgary police have identified a 15-year-old girl who was fatally shot this week as investigators try to determine whether she was the intended target or if it was a case of mistaken identity.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting in an alley in the Martindale neighbourhood early Tuesday morning.

They say the teenager was a passenger in a vehicle when she was shot and that the driver, who was not injured, immediately fled the scene before pulling over to call police.

Police say investigators have received several tips from the public.

They say evidence from the scene leads police to believe it was targeted, but investigators haven’t determined whether the occupants of the vehicle were the intended targets.

The girl has been identified as Sarah Alexis Jorquera of Calgary.

“This was a senseless act of violence that took the life of a young girl,” Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta of the homicide unit said in a statement Wednesday.

“At this point, we have more questions than answers and are working around the clock to hold those responsible accountable. Losing a 15-year-old is a tragic loss for our community, her school, her friends and, most importantly, her family.”

Police ask anyone with any information about the shooting to call investigators.

‘A miracle’: Advocate says help being planned for victims of Calgary house explosion

A leader in Calgary’s South Sudanese community says efforts are to be made to provide financial help to 10 people seriously injured in a house explosion.

The blast Monday destroyed one home, damaged several others and left part of the roof from the house that blew up in a yard across the street in the neighbourhood east of downtown.

Calgary Emergency Medical Services has said all the victims were adults, and that six of them had life-threatening injuries and four were seriously hurt.

Community advocate Gar Gar said it appears all of the victims were from South Sudan. Gar said he and some of the victims’ family members met at one of the hospitals where the injured were taken.

“I met a son who came to the hospital and went in and saw his dad and you could see the tears in his eyes. That sounds like it’s related to something that he saw and the shape is father is in,” Gar said Tuesday.

“There are family members, cousins, uncles and their nephews and nieces. Eventually, those will be the houses that some of them, when they get out of the hospital, might also be hoping to get back in.”

The fire department said the force of the explosion created “a large debris field” and several fires. A tangle of what appeared to be charred beams, pink insulation and splintered wood could be seen where the house once stood.

Homes on either side were charred and one had a shattered window. A tree in front had a piece of plywood and other debris stuck in it.

Gar said after hearing about the explosion and seeing its aftermath, he can’t believe there have been no deaths so far.

“To hear that they’re still fighting for their lives and some of them are stable — that by itself is a miracle and we give thanks for the responders who came in and took them so quick,” he said.

“Back home, we would probably have been talking about something different.”

Gar said if all 10 victims were living inside the home, he wants to know why.

“That’s certainly something we are asking when we get more details to see what kept 10 people in one house. Is that affordability issues or is that simply because we’re seeing the homelessness coming into the South Sudanese community?”

Gar said community members will be meeting with the families Tuesday to see about setting up a crowdfunding page.

“Basically they lost everything in one blink of an eye. They’re fighting not to lose their lives,” Gar said.

“We’re hoping to rally around those families and the community to come together and to support them where we can.”

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
