How to convince a climate skeptic he’s wrong

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

“What Evidence,” asks Ronald Bailey’s headline (www.reason.com, April 3, 2015), “Would Convince You That Man-Made Climate Change Is Real?”

The answer: a rational, scientific case rooted in established theory and data would convince me that manmade climate change is a problem. That it is real is not in doubt, for every creature that breathes out emits CO2 and thus affects the climate.

The true scientific question, then, is not the fatuous question whether “Man-Made Climate Change Is Real” but how much global warming our sins of emission may cause, and whether that warming might be more a bad thing than a good thing.

By Robert Tracinski

Recently, Reason‘s Ronald Bailey asked what it would take to convince conservatives and libertarians that global warming is real.

[...]
I’ve gone on record a long time ago sketching out what stages would be required to demonstrate that humans are causing rising global temperatures, never mind the much more dubious proposition that warmer weather is going to be a catastrophe. Let me elaborate on it here.

There are three main requirements:

An Interesting Alignment of Supreme Court Justices
Yates v. United States (not the 1957 Communist case)
Docket No. 13-7451 11th Cir. Nov 5, 2014

Issue: Whether Mr. Yates was deprived of fair notice that destruction of fish would fall within the purview of 18 U.S.C. § 1519, which makes it a crime for anyone who “knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object” with the intent to impede or obstruct an investigation, where the term “tangible object” is ambiguous and undefined in the statute, and unlike the nouns accompanying “tangible object” in section 1519, possesses no record-keeping, documentary, or informational content or purpose.

Зимний шторм Юнона
Так это здесь называют. Не Россия, конечно, но нас слегка занесло - около двух футов снега. Из-за ветра кое-где (например, на крышах машин на открытой улице) снега было мало, а в других – много. Например, на крыше нашей машины:

У местных бульдозеристов есть поганая привычка заваливать запаркованные машины снегом даже тогда, когда это не нужно. Через дорогу от нас четыре машины припёрты к тротуару валом снега в человеческий рост.

Old Tech
The CD carousel had a CD jammed in the playing mechanism. I freed it. Now once again I have a 700 Mb x 200 = roughly 130 Gb storage device :-)

Accidental Hacker
It turns out that regular Charliecards expire. The only reason I know is because I heard a PA announcement to that effect in the subway: "Your Charliecard may be expiring. Check it at a fare machine."

The link above does say that "CharlieCard expiration dates can be found by tapping the card at a Fare Vending Machine and using the Card/Ticket Information button." So I went to a fare machine and did that.

The touchscreen menu was replaced with a bluish screen and a dialog box informing me that "FRONTEND.EXE has performed an illegal operation and will be closed by Windows." Nothing else happened. I then crashed another fare machine in the same manner and decided to leave the third alone (there were only three at that entrance). But on my way home I tried it with a third machine at another entrance with the same result.

Now wasn't that a Windows 95 message?
