California just keeps getting crazier. When it comes to the most absurd use of taxpayer money, the city of Los Angeles may just win the award. In a move intended to cool down the city and fight the effects of global warming, the city is painting many of its streets with a grayish-white substance known as CoolSeal, which reflects sunlight, in theory making the city cooler.
The cost to taxpayers is a mere $40,000 per mile. With 6,500 miles of road in Los Angeles, thatâ€™s a hefty price tag, more than a quarter of a billion dollars. Admittedly, there are no plans to paint all the roads in L.A. â€” yet. Even so, $40,000 per mile seems a hefty price to pay, especially for something that has to be redone every seven years.
City officials, led by Mayor Eric Garcetti, are hoping that the whiter roadways will reduce the urban heat island (UHI) effect, which can make urban areas much warmer than rural areas....

I think John MacArthur has turn on the fire alarms about Strange Fire
John MacArthur wrote: It is very evident that a massive part of professing Christianity lacks discernment. And so the effort in this conference these days and with my dear friends who are going to be sharing in opening the Word of God to you and speaking to you is to help you to be discerning. We know there are people who are in this movement who are deceivers, and they know theyâ€™re deceivers. Theyâ€™re false teachers, and they know theyâ€™re false teachers. Theyâ€™re in it for the money, and they know theyâ€™re in it for the money.
We also know there are people caught up in the movement who are deceived and may not know they are deceived. They are brands that need to be snatched from the burning, to borrow the words from Jude. There are leaders who need to be confronted and exposed, and there are unwitting leaders who need to be helped and encouraged and know the truth.

Yes there needs to be a cost-benefit analysis on painting LA streets white!
