Professor Michael Mann is a personal hero of mine, principally because he connected, for me, the world of time series and principal components with climate science, showing there might be some small thing I can contribute to the discussion, and … Continue reading
How black body physics and radiation equilibrium is crucial to semiconductor operation: links
There was some skepticism expressed regarding my claim that black body radiation equilibrium physics used to argue the inevitability of climate change in a world having higher greenhouse gas concentrations (per Arrhenius) had something crucial to do with the operation … Continue reading
