  1. Appears strange to me they pulled up when the airspeed warning sounded. Normal is to pull down in such occasions to pick up speed.
    On the other hand: The French will never say the French pilots did anything wrong.

Republican Congressman and former friend of the Taliban Dana Rohrabacher has an idea for curbing global warming: Gut the world’s rainforests of old and decaying trees, because greenhouse gasses are "generated by nature itself." The California Representative thinks this whole idea of manmade global warming is bullshit, and wants to have developing countries with large rainforests to go in and do some heavy duty pruning.
