It looks like this.
Fifteen people were injured, two of them seriously, when an explosion ripped through a house in New Jersey on Tuesday.
The blast is thought to have been caused by a ruptured gas main, and seven of the injured were maintenance workers who were trying to locate the source of the leak.
The explosion happened about 90 minutes after police received the first report of a strong gas smell in the area.

The war against Christians is being waged not just by ISIS but by its ideological Sunni forefathers of the Wahhabi Islamist movement, nurtured by the house of Saud and the Muslim Brotherhood and fed by Islamist benefactors from the Gulf (e.g., Qatar) and beyond. ISIS’s attacks against Christians were simply learned from the ideologies of the Wahhabi militants of Saudi Arabia, the home and the headquarters of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), which sets the tone for the supremacist Islam, or Islamism, promoted across the planet. Saudi Arabia has a long, notorious track record of being one of the world’s worst offenders of religious freedom and notably of Christians, who are not allowed to worship publicly, build churches, or carry Bibles. The fate of Christians is tied to the abysmal fate of all minorities, including dissident Muslims — of all victims of persecution under political Islam and its militant fascist offshoots.Related: "Nonsense about terrorism's 'root causes'," on CNN no less.
Already a predictable tsunami of nonsense has washed over us about the "root causes" of terrorism. We have heard from Obama administration officials and even the President himself that terrorism has something to do with lack of opportunities and poverty. Obama said on Wednesday that "we have to address grievances terrorists exploit, including economic grievances."But almost all the Islamist terrorists are actually men and women of the upper half.

A very useful and illuminating video.

We know for sure that the computer models relied on by climate alarmists are wrong, since they have been refuted by experience. In the video below, Dr. Christopher Essex, chairman of the Permanent Monitoring Panel on Climate for the World Federation of Scientists, explains why the limitations of computers, in the context of a complex, chaotic system like the Earth’s climate, are inherent and can never be overcome, at least not until some fundamental scientific puzzles are solved.
Dr. Essex’s lecture, which was delivered just a few days ago, is a little over an hour long. That sounds forbidding, but I, at least, couldn’t stop watching it. The first 20 minutes are devoted to pointing out how silly much of the current conversation on climate, carbon, and so on is. After that comes the scientific heart of the lecture. Enjoy!
And then there is physicist Freeman Dyson, one of the eminent scientists of the last 100 years.
