To live in a geodesic dome, I rented a duplex and sublet the old house half in front. The landlady and I traded picking tenants. It was interesting how they would move out, leaving the maximum financial damage behind. It was on me to pay their back power bill to get power turned on in the shop building. One instance cost me $1000, the landlady ate three times that much in structural damage (dry rot they hadn't reported).

I heard about a 'CNN Climate Debate' and wondered why I hadn't heard about it here. Then I found out it was a debate among Presidential candidates.
