Re: Things That Make Me Say "Hmmmm...."

Buffett and Munger are losing it. They should not talk about topics they don't understand. They sound stupid.

Agree that it is off topic and shouldn't be discussed, I think they should work on the exit KO strategy for different [more]

Re: zero-sum game

The complicating factor is that climate change also affects insects and there is evidence that insect growth rates may be increased more than plant growth. Climate change may shift the balance in favor of the herbivore, which would not be good [more]

Re: phone apps

I like endomondo, I've used it for years, it tracks other workout types too, its customizable, so you can focus on the 3 or 4 things you care about and clear the rest.

Re: Valeant

They restated their 10k today and it seems not as bad as made out to be. I think new management could be effective in turning the company around. Is new management a BMW event or work against it? I think it would typically work against a turn around, [more]

Yes, they were.


You're do not seem to be reading what people are saying, you're assuming what they're saying. A common problem on this board.

Re: zero-sum game

CO2 also increases weed competition and insect pressure.

So your theory is that weeds can more efficiently take advantage of a CO2 increase than non-weeds? I don't buy it. There is no reason for that to happen consistently. [more]

Re: zero-sum game

and the stark contrast between North and South Korea show that modern farming techniques seem to be much more important than the increased efficiencies from CO2.

Yeah, no one was saying otherwise.

Re: zero-sum game

How do the proposed efficiencies reflect in N Korea and the Russian dryness? This is more for anyone who can answer without just making things up, or just giving another study.

There are a bunch of other studies that say differently, [more]

Re: zero-sum game

We don't eat trees or weeds.

We can obviously control weeds enough to increase yields over the last 50 years or so.

Re: zero-sum game

You brought up faster Aspen growth because of rising CO2 but make no response about the subsequent increased insect damage that offset that growth.

You're missing the point.

An overwhelming number of studies show that in [more]

Re: zero-sum game

A lot of observations say otherwise.

Feel free to describe those observations.


DrBob has posted about 15 or so articles in the last couple weeks.

Do you have any that show the world is not getting greener?

Re: zero-sum game

When thinking about the biological consequences of climate change it is probably best to assume a zero-sum game.

A lot of observations say otherwise.

Re: muller classifies climate thinkers

The home I grew up in was about 8 feet above sea level. The refineries that are the economy of that area are about 6 feet above sea level.

A 6 foot raise in sea levels is only predicted in the most extreme predictions for 100 years [more]

I consider anyone who has a higher degree in math as a scientist of sorts, go figure.
