commented on British Scientists Wanted No Exit From the EU
I'm opposed to EU austerity policy that beats up Greece, Spain, and Italy and I'm skeptical about predictions of big economic problems from the brexit. I predict that savvy investors will use the decline in equities markets as a buying opportunity and make money.
commented on Do You Still Trust Hillary Clinton?
In 2004 we could have defeated W with Howard Dean but John Kerry was supposed to be more electable. This year we could defeat Trump with Sanders but the chicken shit wing of the Democratic party is ready to crown Hillary if Bernie doesn't win a landslide in California. This will probably mean continual Republican dominance in congress whether she wins or not. And possibly the extinction of human kind if Trump wins.
commented on Who to Believe About the Alberta Wildfires: Cliff Mass or the New York Times?
Professor Mass correctly points out that individual events aren't evidence of human caused climate change taken by themselves. He is among the huge majority of scientists who point out that long term trends indicate that we are experiencing global warming, at least partly as a result of human activity. Mudede fails as educator.
commented on Yesterday I Read the NYT Cover To Cover
I never read the whole thing. And I only do the crossword on Monday. And every month I have to haul half a pickup full of paper to the nearest free recycling location since I live 11 miles from town, and 90% of it is the NYT. Oh well Paul Krugman is worth it.
