Opposition leader urges ministers to ditch government if bill is advanced by ministers, as PM reportedly says coalition will collapse without its approval and he won’t give up on it

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to backtrack on parts of his proposed Haredi enlistment law on Monday following widespread public criticism, including from within his own coalition.

According to Hebrew-language news reports, the government decided to remove from the measure — which is expected to be brought to the cabinet on Tuesday — a clause raising the exemption age for yeshiva students to 35.

Channel 12 reported the decision to roll back the change came as a result of the warningfrom Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara that she would be unable to defend the proposed bill, and Finance Ministry figures showing the economy taking a hit of over NIS 100 billion ($27.5 billion) over the next decade if the army extended the time recruits must serve rather than draft Haredim into the military.

An ultra-Orthodox political source who spoke with Ynet said that a new version of the proposal containing provisions for financial sanctions — and possibly specific annual enlistment goals — was to be distributed to members of the cabinet Monday.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
