Why I love science. Another 5th grader weighs in. LOL
More from another apparently 5th grader as she doesn't buy into your global warming/climate change ideology. LOL
"My WSJ op-ed: Global warming statistical meltdown
Posted on October 9, 2014 | 494 Comments
by Judith Curry
I was invited to submit an op-ed regarding the recent Lewis/Curry paper on climate sensitivity. For background, see
◾Lewis and Curry: Climate sensitivity uncertainty
◾Lewis and Crok: Climate less sensitive to CO2 than models suggest
◾Challenging the two degree target
The full text of the op-ed is reproduced below, WSJ [link].
The Global Warming Statistical Meltdown
At the recent United Nations Climate Summit, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned that “Without significant cuts in emissions by all countries, and in key sectors, the window of opportunity to stay within less than 2 degrees [of warming] will soon close forever.” Actually, this window of opportunity may remain open for quite some time. A growing body of evidence suggests that the climate is less sensitive to increases in carbon-dioxide emissions than policy makers generally assume—and that the need for reductions in such emissions is less urgent."
You asked "Dan -- Would I prefer the Alps up north, or the vineyards down south? The bustle of Rome, or the quaint countryside? And the cuisine: Northern, or Sicilian?"
The answer is yes. When you go, go slowly, enjoy where your feet take you. I don't think you will be disappointed.
And the cuisine, hard to beat a local restaurant in a small town that has been in the family for generations. I have yet to find anything like it here in the USA.
When you get the chance (make the chance) go for it. You can find internet. Being in Italy is like being a kid in a candy store. Hard to decide what to do next, but what ever you choose to do will be awesome. And yes, thanks Sophie and the Pilot for reminding me what a great place Italy can be to visit.
You may have stepped out of bounds. Mr. Keith made no mention of the US government. You are free to assume that might be what he meant, but you might be incorrect. Americans through out history have done positive things. i would suspect even you could agree with that. If Mr. Keith confirms he was specifically talking of the US government then that becomes an interesting topic eh.
Tab is still around. The aspartame must be why I glow in the dark.
Have 8 12 packs in the garage if you need a fix.
True story. My first exposure to alcohol was warm Fresca and gin in the back seat of a buddy's car.
Now use Fresca to make lower cal margaritas.
"is it really cheaper to drive" In this particular case it appears to be. $584 in savings for 2 tickets - $150 (50 cents per mile) to $225 (75 cents per mile) in "car operating costs" = $359 to $434 in savings(3 or 4 "date nights" at Cafe Diva - or some similar activity, with the lovely Mrs. K). Have to pay to park at Hayden as well as DIA. Heck, 2 people could take Alpine Taxi R/T and still save over $200. Fare structures at other airports are relevant for those trying to stay on a budget. Added bonus to driving to DIA - Costco and the ability to buy TAB (coca cola product not distributed in Steamboat but available on the front range, oh and Vail - LOL)
going back to the homeland over Christmas holiday.
HDN to MSP $625 per R/T Delta nonstop - One hour drive to HDN from home
DEN to MSP $333 per R/T Southwest nonstop - Three 1/2 hour drive to DEN from home.
$292 savings X 2 tickets = $584 savings for inconvenience of driving to and from DIA.
$584 is a lot for the "convenience" of flying from HDN
Does an increase in co2 prevent "global warming"?
Amazing. There are currently 10 articles listed under "popular stories" on The Pilot website and this is the only one that Scott W. has not posted on.
