Re: Models & precipitation

What if you were a city planner looking at future infrastructure needs for flooding?

I would understand that the uncertainty in the models is a strong argument for implementing significant carbon mitigation strategies immediately. We [more]

Re: Window Inserts

Some utility companies offer free or discounted energy audits. We had one done and it was really useful. Showed what was worth doing and what was not. Check with your local utility. There are also tax credits for energy saving [more]

Scams from the 1800s

"Arguably, the 1800s were the Golden Age of schemes. The term "confidence man" or "con man" was probably coined midcentury and, according to the New York Times, the Brooklyn Bridge was sold more [more]

Re: new paper: models not biased

James Annan is a climate scientist who is no way a denier. But he is often critical of some of the research and displays, in my view, a skepticism proper for a scientist.

He has a blog post about the controversy surrounding the paper and [more]

Re: The Statistics Of Temperature Adjustments

Interesting, if a bit snarky, post at Variable Variability. The graphs, made by Zeke Hausfather of Berkeley Earth, tell the story. You can cherry-pick individual stations or regions and find that the adjusted temperatures enhance or diminish warming. [more]

Re: CALIBRATED data better than raw

In the nuclear power industry, a safety related instrument which is out of calibration is declared inoperable

Fortunately, there is often enough redundancy in the instrumentation so those extreme measures are not

Scholarships

I understand that scholarships that are not used for qualified educational expenses, (used for room and board in our case) are taxable to the student. My question is, is this earned or unearned income?

Re: The problem 2

They did as soon as the standards that had been used for all the previous decades stalled in the late 1990s.

I believe that if the global temperatures had not started to stall, then AGW activists would not be concerned with the deep ocean

529 questions

Our son's college gave me bad advice last fall when he enrolled and we took too large a 529 withdrawal. Now I am trying to see what the options are.

We paid for an academic program that takes place in the dorm and we were unsure if the cost [more]

I don't think that will fit in anyone's pocket. Might as well get a separate camera, no?

Re: The problem 2

In engineering, you need beyond a reasonable doubt

Jim, once again you're switching between evidence for safety and evidence for risk, evidence for success and evidence for failure.

In engineering, you need stringent evidence [more]

Re: Iceland Rising Due To Glacier Melt

Suggesting that AGW has increased that rate would take extraodinary evidence.

Yet you have provided no evidence at all. I am certain that geologists have lots of studies of the timescales of adjustment of continents since the Ice Age. [more]

Re: Iceland Rising Due To Glacier Melt

This is what you wrote.

Interestingly, limited GPS only started in 1995, they added stations in like 2005 and 2009, so the entire period measured by GPS was during this "accelerated" land rise. It does seem like the time scale [more]

Re: Iceland Rising Due To Glacier Melt

how are they certain that it is related to climate change.

Read the paper and report back. Don't just assume the scientists are stupid or corrupt.
