Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

palmbeacher proving my point :D You did spend a page critiquing a 1979 report when there are dozens of more recent studies with smaller and more precise probability ranges. The point is that, even at the lowest sensitivity probability bounds, the climate is warming so much and so quickly that 'busi...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Equilibrium climate sensitivity is likely between 2.3 and 4.5 Kelvin, and very likely to be between 2.0 and 5.7 K. https://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/abs/sh02800e.html Temperature rise more than 2 K above pre-industrial levels has been shown to be extremely deleterious to ecosystems and society. Net greenho...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

There is no if. The physics behind climate change have been understood since 1895 and confirmed by temperature and paleoclimatic records. It's valid to argue adaption versus mitigation but the climate implications of continuing to emit greenhouse gases is undeniable.

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Yet more fake charts from MM. The x-axis is mislabelled. In fact, it should say “Years before 1950”, rather than “Years before present (2000 AD)”. The GISP2 ice core only extends up to 1855 – 95 years before 1950. This means that none of the modern observational temperature period overlaps with the ...

Re: Exploding lines. Anyone had this happen? (picture in post)

Electrical current will damage kite lines so they break like that. You'd probably know about it if you had put your kite over power-lines though :-)

Re: How hackers invented kiteboarding - The New Yorker

Just curious, is there anyone here who has been airlifted hundreds of feet into the air using the original kite equipment without depower? This is the first really big lofting I remember seeing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd8vT1KR4RE We used to dread this happening, early kites were not stable...

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

Once again, mm fails to understand the difference between trend and variation.

Re: climate change / unpredictable weather/wind

A different example of how things are complicated, vehicle emmissions. Are you aware that you can't reduce C02 (climate change) and particulates (pollution)? It's a trade off to a degree. So if you want to reduce pollution (you seem to be keen on this) then you will increase the C02 emmissions and ...
