Jeffrey Epstein suicide. CNN column: The puzzle around Epstein's suicide.

A psychologist's view of the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein.

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg was named by TIME magazine as one of the "World's 100 Most Influential People." Lomborg founded and directs the Copenhagen Consensus Center think tank. While Lomborg agrees humans are creating climate change, he argues the panic announcements about 18 months to save the planet are nonsense. Lomborg writes in his international newspaper column: "a year ahead of the US presidential election, exaggeration about global warming is greater than ever. While some politicians continue (incorrectly) to insist it's made up, for more insist (also incorrectly) that we face an imminent climate crisis threatening civilization." Lomborg adds "don't let climate scientists spoil your summer BBQ."

Rob Baltovich was convicted of the murder of his girlfriend Elizabeth Bain on March 31, 1992. Baltovich spent 8 years in prison before the Ontario Court of Appeal granted him bail on ​March 31, 2000. On December 2, 2004 the court set aside Baltovich's conviction and ordered a new trial. On April 22, 2008. Crown chose to call no evidence at the retrial and Robert Baltovich was exonerated and freed. Much had gone wrong and Baltovich began a civil lawsuit for $11 million against the Government of Ontario. That suit is now almost complete.
