Linux x32 ABI Not Catching Wind
no. time will fairly quickly diminish the value as 64 bit cpus get faster.
Sun Not a Significant Driver of Climate Change
come on! agw predicts extreme variability in weather as the climate heats up. that is why there is extreme cold in places unaccustomed to that, and vice versa, more or less heat, rain, snow, wind, whatever. this has been recorded in enough places over the last few decades to be empirical evidence of the prediction. the logic makes sense too since more energy in the system means weather systmes have more power to do what they do. one weather system does not work in isolation of other neighboring systems.
Can the US Be Weaned Off Ethanol?
fossil fuels create the fertilizer, they run the tractor and trucks. eliminating corn as a bio fuel would be a good thing.
Can GM Challenge Tesla With a Long-Range Electric Car?
ok, your situation is the exception. You could even bike to work at that distance.
Pouring Water Into a Volcano To Generate Power
precisely. Even though it's only water (no 10% special additional chemicals), I can imagine this having similar effects of increasing the toxicity of the drinkable ground table due to leaching. Unless they can demonstrate that X million gallons of water will remain contained in a closed loop this will have similar effect.
Tandberg Attempts To Patent Open Source Code
This sounds pretty convincing that it's a copy. You can tell the patent examiner about the prior art. You don't have to sue or be sued. The only defense Tandberg could claim is they actually told you about the idea, and you "stole" it when you committed the code. They would have to show evidence to the examiner to rebut his rejection based on your ex parte evidence.
MIT Says Natural Gas Best To Lower Carbon Emissions
High Depreciation May Slow Electric Car Acceptance
>> Aside from that, I don't see any way for there to be a 5 minute or less charge of a car with a 400+ mile range, like we do with gasoline. If anyone else has an idea, I'd like to hear it.
hmm... if you have a filling station full of already charged batteries, and the cars can easily swap, it probably would take a few minutes.
More Climate Scientists Now Support Geoengineering
ok, read this excerpt from http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/01/080116114150.htm
The eight warmest years in the GISS record have all occurred since 1998, and the 14 warmest years in the record have all occurred since 1990.
so i guess most of your hypothesis about gw being bogus because the earth is cooling is suspect...
Daily Caffeine Protects Your Brain
so the conclusion of the article is to drink coffee, not caffeine, which is *not* the logical conclusion of the data. that would be to eat caffeine pills. otherwise mountain dew would be just as sufficient as coffee. hmm... this is another example of bad science reporting.
