The storm surrounding Senate Bill 1062 was a stark contrast to last year, when an almost identical piece of legislation slipped through the Legislature with a similar vote and little debate.
The reason behind the shift has perplexed many lawmakers.
“I don’t have any idea,” said Senate Majority Leader John McComish, R-Phoenix. “We think it’s this benign bill, and all of a sudden, it explodes.”
SB 1062 would have offered a legal defense for individuals and businesses facing discrimination lawsuits if they could prove they acted upon a “sincerely held religious belief.”

5 cookstoves used around the world
The use of cook stoves is a larger influence on global warming than most people realize, first because gathering wood contributes in a major way to deforestation, and second because while one cook stove doesn't release that many greenhouse gases, millions of them do.
More efficient stoves or solar cooking is not only better for the people doing the cooking, allowing them more free time to parent or shop or work or rest and also a reduced risk of injuries or illness from smoke inhalation or burns, but also is good for the entire rest of the world.http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/cookstoves-around-world/
