commented on Why Cliff Mass Is a Very Dangerous Weatherperson
My problem with Cliff Mass is that if he indeed believes climate change is real then he needs to be speaking out about it. Fine for him to continue to be an honest scientist but not OK to do only that and not speak out about the other. Dr. James Hanson ( http://www.columbia.edu/~jeh1/
) is an example of a climate scientist with integrity. I have my doubts about Mr. Mass.

Regardless of how the contract for this work was let, I find it disgusting to treat people this way.
Ironically, the Mayor's declaration of an emergency could preclude the need for competitive bidding.
I understand the Mayor considers the founder of the Catholic Worker movement, Dorothy Day, to be his inspiration. This seems odd when one considers she is famous for saying "Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy rotten system."
