What if the galaxy with many fewer stars has higher quality stars? Should we give so much credit to galaxies that are prolific star creators when they have poached the material from other galaxies?
The carbon in plants and in fossil fuels is depleted in the C13 isotope by about 1.8 percent (18 mils). The annual wiggles in the C13 ratio are accounted for by the complementary wiggles in the total CO2 being the update and reemission of CO2 depleted in C13 at that level.
The multi-decade slope of the C13 curve is much more shallow in comparison to the annual wiggles in relation to the same comparison for total CO2. Any number of debunk-the-skeptics Web sites points out that as we emit CO2 depleted in C13, the C13 ratio declines. But not one of these sites offers even a rough quantitative analysis, which would show that CO2 depleted at the fossil level can account for no more than a third of the increase in atmospheric CO2 that is the source of much anxiety.
Is anyone else noticing this?
I shut up and didn't make any remarks about that poor Thomas Eric Duncan dude . . .
People think a fire turns everything to molton slag. There was much that survived even when the 2 cars in the garage were reduced to burnt hulks.
Don't have any experience with such a thing with modern multi-100 Gig drives, but traditionally drives were built like tanks.
Maybe it was a job security thang?
The Shoe Bomber Richard Reid got stomped by the other passengers, and the Underwear Bomber Abdul-Mutalub was fought and stopped by a fellow passenger.
On the other hand, if someone really wants to crash the plane, can the other pilot or the pilot with volunteer passenger "muscle" stop this. The passenger on that one plane in 9-11 broke open the cockpit door -- they were able to thwart a fourth attack on a building, but they were unable to prevent a crash. It seems they knew there chances of living were slim and they gave their lives to prevent loss-of-life on the ground.
But what do women pilots use? What if the call is for Bodily Function #2? Even with an all-male crew, do you really want to expose yourself this way to your colleague? There is this protocol with the urinals in the Men's Room of not looking over at other dudes -- at the controls of the plane, should the other pilot have to limit their gaze of the instruments and controls?
It seems people can get very huffy about something deemed irrelevant?
It seems someone can get quite imperious about an enterprise that garners pushback for being heavyhanded?
It seems the word "conversation" really mean "shut up and hang your head in shame while I explain to you what you should think?"
I believe Charles Dodgson (AKA Lewis Carroll) wrote of such a thing . .
But when there is an ideological agenda, there can be a lot of confirmation bias.
Start with the title, "New Solar Capacity Beats Coal and Wind, Again." Is this an objective, nerd-centric assessment of scientific fact? Or is it a victory-lap "Eat stuff all of you doubters and deniers"?
The concern is that Renewable is not quite ready for Prime Time and being jammed down our throats.
