Re: Scientific Misconduct

You don't understand the concept of small government. Small government has less rules, so there are less "cheaters". - jck101

Dear Wendy,

I truly appreciate all that you've done to make METAR a board worth reading from your efforts to cast out brigands and ideologues.

Re: Professor Collum on Wealth Disparity

I wish I could rec this post a hundred times and get every American to read Collum's think piece in its entirety. It's a compelling read, a troubling read and, if we are ever to progress to a healthier economy, it should be a call to action. [more]

Re: Unintelectual Intelectuals

Let me just say from the start, wcaseym, that I find myself agreeing with you on most subjects you post about. Having said that, I just gotta say I don't understand your stance regarding Putin and the situation in the Ukraine. You come across as an [more]

Re: CO2 concentration map

Even so, it is nice to have this simplified simulation. I still think the Navier-Stokes equation is one of the most astonishing physical laws known to humanity. - Loren

Re: Arctic sea ice volume

The recovery was driven by the retention of thick ice around north Greenland and Canada during summer 2013 which, in turn, was associated with a 6% drop in the number of days on which melting occurred – climatic conditions more typical of the [more]

Re: Solar city

Yes, indeed, Iain, there's a battle brewing between electric utilities and the solar industry. Electric utilities aren't all that happy to lose revenues to distributed system solar installations. The utilities rather enjoyed their monopoly status and [more]
