Re: The Flash 101414

I don't recall that scene. Perhaps I have not seen that film.

It's from the recent X-Men: Days of Future Past. The one where the old cast (Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, et. al.) crossover with the prequel cast. Not a bad [more]

Re: The Flash 101414

But there's enough unknown about ESP and the like (I know there are those that would insist enough is known to say "No Way") that they have some creative fudge room there IMO. Again, in my pinions they do not have enough fudge room for a [more]

Re: The Flash 101414

An "identified" power of gene replication in no way implies an ability to instantaneously clone inanimate objects. That's worse than bad writing - it's stupid writing.

Again, you just have to accept it as a convention of the [more]

Re: The Flash 101414

I think even in a comic book this bad guy would have created some naked clones and then have his naked troops suit up and arm themselves before an act of mayhem.

Nope. I actually was an avid reader of the Firestorm book back [more]

Re: The Flash 101414

Let's say I'm willing to suspend disbelief for a guy who without any outside contribution to his mass (no food, no source of any kind) is able to replicate himself full-size a thousand fold on will alone. How then does he replicate his clothes and [more]

Re: Head of NIH says republicans causing Ebola crisi

What I love about the graph attached to the article is that it so perfectly captures the different world views of both sides of our political spectrum.

On the one hand, it shows how the NIH's budget in real (ie. inflation-adjusted) dollars [more]

Re: Keeping the Lights On

The 301 proposed nuclear reactors are mostly a pipe dream.

120 in China
35 in India


Do you not believe that China and India will construct their planned nuclear plants?

Re: Why did Obama let Ebola into this country?

The same action as if an Al Qaeda or ISIS terrorist with a valid passport or visa took a connecting flight through Brussels to the US.

Which would be what, exactly?

Re: Ebola policies? How to ask?

These are assumptions based on a great deal of experience. The CDC has dealt with Ebola before, as well as with many other diseases at least as contagious. There is a very large human element to these protocols, from training people how to follow [more]

Re: Solar Rooftop Charges (from bjchip)

Most solar seems to be in run-of-the-mill middle class neighborhoods, based on my observations locally.

Which would still likely put them at above average for unit sizes, because even an average single-family detached home will be [more]

Re: Why did Obama let Ebola into this country?

If the borders are safe, how does Ebola get in?

Because people are allowed to fly into this country from Brussels if they have a valid passport.

What action do you specifically think should have been implemented by Obama in [more]

Re: Solar Rooftop Charges (from bjchip)

So the cost/benefit to society of residential rooftop solar will depend on a lot of things, but IMO in most cases it's a net societal benefit not burden because of reduced broad peak power demand / increased broad peak power production combined [more]

Re: Hansen speaks truth to power

Problem for the republicans is that all the stuff left to cut big enough to make a difference in the deficit are political third rails, particularly since the GOP demographic skews older.

They're all third rails. The only way that the [more]

Re: Hansen speaks truth to power

For a republican congressional majority it is pick your poison. In that context, a carbon tax that can be blamed on the democrats and an ecological emergency doesn't seem so far-fetched.

Yes, it does seem pretty far-fetched. Neither [more]

Re: Hansen speaks truth to power

Well that would certainly be the conventional wisdom. But you know, it wasn't that long ago when Republicans were touting the use of the carbon tax half-brother, cap-N-trade, to successfully deal with ecological problems. Reagan used cap-N-trade [more]

China seems to be committed to putting a price on carbon by 2016. Perhaps they will be the leader of the band.

Re: Hansen speaks truth to power

At the risk of wishful thinking, I think a proposal presented as an Income Tax Reduction Plan that uses a carbon tax as the alternative revenue source would have political legs.
