Like little stars.
Jon Stewart last night had a bit of fun at the expense of Senate Republicans, who were forced to listen to four former EPA chiefs, all who served under Republican presidents, explain to them that man-made climate change is a real and serious issue (Stewart: “traitors!”).
The “Daily Show” host then took the opportunity to call out the senators’ very wrong arguments (the overabundance of CO2 in our atmosphere is OK because it’s “plant food”). After all, a senator who throws out the “I’m not a scientist” line, and then explains that he does have expertise in optometry and zoology in order to justify his climate denialism, is obviously suffering from “willful blindness.”
So if they won’t listen to fellow Republicans, let alone climate scientists, what’s left? Stewart concludes that there’s only one possible solution: “Barack Obama must become a global warming denier.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
