Distributed Solar: The Democratizaton of Energy

(Hat tip to Tamino.)
I’m no meteorologist, but I have dabbled in meteorology ever since being a teenager. (Boy Scout badge in meteorology, for one.) This is an odd-looking weather pattern over the United States. (Click on image to see larger version.)
I never liked the idea of using natural gas as a “bridge energy fuel”. It seems to me unrealistic to invest substantially in additional CO2 producing infrastructure which will simply need to be stopped and teared down a lot sooner … Continue reading
Major economic report out this morning, from Risky Business. There’s a press conference at 0830 ET today, which will be shown in a Web cast. Excerpt: If we continue on our current path, by 2050 between $66 and $106 billion … Continue reading
(Updated 2016 to fix title misspelling, and updated 30 December 2018 to fix video link.) You know ’em: There’s been no warming for 15 years The Sun’s responsible CO2 is a trace gas in atmosphere and therefore can’t have anything … Continue reading
This is really excellent, especially in the sketching of bounds for scientists between educating on scientific subjects, such as climate change, and just “contributing to the noise”.
Time to get angry, with Imhofe, Barton, and the origins of fossil fuel disinformation.
Worth supporting. We need more of this kind of thing.
Steve Carson writes the Science of Doom blog, which has wonderfully technical and detailed explanations regarding atmospheric radiation and climate systems. He has a new post, which links to posts I had not previously seen: Radiative Atmospheres with no Convection … Continue reading
True motives revealed: ‘The climate models are bad and don’t work; but let’s not try to improve them’
In a wholly cynical response on a tiny bit of the U.S. government’s budget, the Republican-dominated Congress has revealed the true motives of their financial backers: To hobble, delay, confuse, and force mismanagement of any government or academic or independent … Continue reading
Say what you want about the U.S. military and the Pentagon, no one in the United States does long range planning like they do, with the possible exception of one or two forward-looking corporations. Certainly, the U.S. Congress does not. … Continue reading
Sure, correlation is not causation, but it is causation if there’s independent physical evidence that there is a link. And we have plenty of that. Much of the doubt and discussion these days is about attribution of surface warming to … Continue reading
An interactive exploration of Boston’s subway system via Visualizing MBTA Data.
On Earth, the oceans are everything, origin of life, moderator of temperature and climate, reservoir of waters. We know so little about them, yet we’ve learned so much, and know the deep debt we have to the world’s oceans. Support … Continue reading
After installing Fujitsu ductless minisplits (heat pumps) to provide nearly all of our heating and cooling (*), Claire and I just signed are signing with Mass Energy Alliance and New England Wind to get 100% of our electricity from their … Continue reading
I am privileged to have the opportunity to pen a guest post at The Azimuth Project blog, in two parts, concerning the question of whether or not there is a slowdown in warming in global mean surface temperature. It is … Continue reading

The Foolish Line Anthony Watts is on a very long list of those who ridicule the threat of sea level rise. As many others have done, he shows a tide gauge record (for Sewell’s Point,…
