Crocus tommasinianus are out, and are glorious. Here are two photos of blooms in our yard taken with my new Google Pixel 2: Some reviews of the Pixel 2: from Digital Trends from c|net from GSM Arena: Technical specs!
(Updated 2018-04-05, 23:53 EDT.) Now here’s a thought: A microgrid with dynamic boundaries. Original popular article. Controller design. Basic ideas were conceived by Nassar and Salama, “Adaptive self-adequate microgrids with dynamic boundaries”: Abstract Intensive research is being directed at microgrids … Continue reading
There’s a discussion way off at Energy Institute at Haas about how unfair solar owners are, under current government policies, to electrical customers who do not have PV accessible. It’s irrelevant. Fossil fuels are done, stranded, the walking dead. Boss … Continue reading

Today is the 21st of March, 2018. We are supposed to get our fourth nor’easter tomorrow this late Winter, and the third nor’easter in nearly as many weeks. ECMWF hosted, in this incarnation, at the Meteocentre UQAM in Montreal created … Continue reading

Hat tip to Tamino. Thoreau’s “Slavery in Massachusetts”. But, recall, the stakes we gamble upon today are much bigger than those, as big as they were. See here for further details. But watch the episode if you really want to … Continue reading
Done by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, new sea-level report cards offer a look at current sea-level rise rates, and projections. What’s interesting to me is making the projections conditional upon the character of the model used to project. … Continue reading

By the way, I often post smaller things and comment upon them, typically items having to do with economic, financial, business, or solid waste management matters, at my site on LinkedIn.
And Then There’s Physics does a fine post about scientists “talking about solutions and motivating action”. But I felt the figure from Dr Glen Peters needed to be updated a bit, with a status briefing. So, below: (Click on image … Continue reading

That’s Atlantic Avenue near the Aquarium. That’s Essex, in Cape Ann. That’s the Sargent’s Wharf parking lot. That’s is where General Electric wants to build their new headquarters (!). That’s Columbus Park, near the Aquarium. That’s Neponset Circle. That’s Plymouth … Continue reading
