Climate Facts from James Hansen and Makiko Sato Ahead of COP26
From the newsletter of 14th October 2021: Left are greenhouse gas emissions in 2018, and right are cumulative greenhouse gas emissions, 1751-2018. Don’t think it’s China. Prior COPs have been characterized by self-delusion so blatant that one of us (JEH) … Continue reading

Baseload is an intellectual crutch for engineers and utility managers who cannot think dynamically
This is an awesome presentation by Professor Joshua Pearce of Michigan Technological University. (h/t Peter Sinclair’s Climate Denial Crock of the Week) The same idea, that “baseload is a shortcut for engineers who can’t think dynamically”, was similar in the … Continue reading
