  • Commented on Questions for the Syngas Troll
    The information I gave you came from the primary literature. Zhang's group (UW) is the source the the ice volume data, for GRACE data see; GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS, VOL. 40, 3055–3063, doi:10.1002/grl.50527, 2013). If you think any other hypothesis (I...

    "political hacks posing as scientists" Project much? Peer-reviewed journals all have a section in the Instructions to Authors that ask the reviewers to evaluate the manuscript they are reviewing on whether the conclusions reached in the paper are justified by...
  • Commented on Questions for the Syngas Troll
    OK then, since the oceans are responsible for 93% of the heat capacity of the biosphere, then warming of the oceans pretty much settles whether global warming is occurring. Basically, sea level rise data shows that while sea level has...
  • Posted Questions for the Syngas Troll to onegoodmove Forum
    I won't bother to refute the latest trash from the Daily Mail - at least not until Syngas answers the following: (!) What part of the biosphere is responsible for 93% of the biosphere's heat capacity and what data concerning that part of the biosphere makes all other discussion of global warming a sideshow (including, even, arctic ice melting)? (2) What data did the NASA Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment gather? (3) What are the best estimates available for continental groundwater depletion over the past 50+ years? (4) How do you think a liquid thermometer works?...

    A controversial Turkish preacher who goes by the name of Harun Yahya is in the forefront. His website spews pamphlets and books decrying Darwin. Unlike his American counterparts, however, he concedes that the universe is billions of years old (not...

  • Posted Arctic Meltdown More Alarming than the Most 'Alarmist' Projections to onegoodmove Forum
    The arctic ice meltdown was big news in 2007. There was a massive drop in the summer arctic ice minimum. The news in 2012 is much worse, blowing all records for the melt out of the water. Ice maps taken in 5-year intervals tell part of the story, but since the ice is also thinning, graphs of average ice volumes are even more illuminating. You don't have to extrapolate very far into the future, perhaps as few as 5-8 years from now, to see an arctic that is nearly ice free for perhaps as long as two months in late summer. Unfortunately, the so-called "alarmist" climate modellers have been getting the rate of arctic ice melt wrong all right: they were all way too conservative....

    The reason I said it was misleading is the implication that burden of showing that pesticides and fertilizers are OK to use falls on the manufacturers, not the users (one can certainly debate about whether that burden is being met...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee Monday
    I think the implication is that you can use pesticides, GMO seeds, and chemical fertilizers 'with impunity', but if you don't do or use any of these terrible things, you saddled with piles of paperwork. It is, of course, extremely...

  • Commented on Romney is the Problem not the Solution
    Why should it be surprising that he is, actually, a moderate conservative in policy and practice? It isn't "surprising", which is exactly why I said, "if only we had any reason to think that Obama was going to anything about...
  • Commented on Romney is the Problem not the Solution
    There is no question that a big part of the GOP's strategy is nothing less than sabotage – anything they think they can wipe their fingerprints off of. That doesn't mean that Obama is "doing all he can". From the...
  • Commented on Romney is the Problem not the Solution
    That ultra-rich parasitic assholes like Romney ARE the problem has been apparent for a long, long, time. Certainly it was exceedingly apparent by the time B.O. took office. Great ad - now if only we had any reason to think...

    Wow! The process operates with quantum mechanic's refined frequencies, and is somewhat similar to the basic principles of homeopathy. (It does not use traditional energy forms like electrical, chemical, thermal, magnetic, or radioactive.) As a chemist who uses exploits chemical...
