Wyoming Is First State To Reject Science Standards Over Climate Change

Alex Cane Re: Motivated rejection of science (661 comments)

It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was an Indian Chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared. But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed," the meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood in order to be prepared. One week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely," the man replied. "It's going to be one of the coldest winters ever." "How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked. The weather man replied, "The Indians are collecting wood like crazy."

Utilities Fight Back Against Solar Energy

Alex Cane Re: There must be a very good reason... (579 comments)

Two words. Phase balancing. Customers (homes, businesses, industry) not un-reasonably demand a constant, steady supply. Get back to us when it is cost effective to cope with the grid instability that solar and wind power produce, or people will put up with brown outs and failures in the modern world.

Sun Not a Significant Driver of Climate Change

Alex Cane Re: What about the Little Ice Age? (552 comments)

Bristlecone pines for a start. When they were originally sampled they were used to test CO2 fertilisation. If you don't believe me then there is a panel of the National Academy of Science to back me up.
