The fact that you feel you need to explain, instead of just enjoying the irony, shows you are taking the whole thing way too seriously.
But knowing you as I do, the underlying science itself is just politics, and that's something built into your personal identity.
I'm not sure what you're saying here.
Are you sure that's what she's remembered for?
Among tech guys, like you, no.
He's probably unelectable thanks to some stupid moves he's made -- he voted against the Violence Against Women Act.
That won't matter.
Walker is still in his first term and he dropped out of college, which is a big negative
That won't matter.
There are several good Republican Governors out there, but they're not on anybody's radar screen. The Governor of New Mexico is one
She doesn't oppose medicinal marijuana, she doesn't oppose same-sex marriage, she does not want to repeal ACA.......essentially you like politicians who agree with your political opinions.
My prediction is that we're going to have a Republican president elected in 2016, and it'll be Jeb Bush. He's going to run against Hillary Clinton.
Ironically, if that happens, we'll have democrat who voted to invade Iraq running against a Bush who didn't.
He could have gone with the Samsung "Pro" drives, which have held out to 2PB of data writes before croaking; they at least pretend to not be consumer drives.
I might suggest that you need to not be expecting a consumer SSD to hold up to an enterprise workload.
1 Marco Rubio (experience: over ten years in congress, can win elections).
2 Scott Walker (experience: Governor, smashing unions and winning hard political fights)
3 Chris Christy (experience: Governor, reaches across the aisle, achieves Republican goals in a Democratic state).
The Jokers are:
1 Ted Cruz (no experience, he's a waffle, special gift of annoying people and destroying things).
2 Rand Paul (no experience, a big name to run on, but that name didn't win many presidential elections).
3 Carly Fiorina (doesn't know how to run a campaign)
4 Jeb Bush (Even his mom discouraged him from running)
5 Mike Huckabee (nice guy, evangelical.....that's the sum total of his platform).
6 Rick Perry (he's like Bush but with none of the brains).
7 Mark Everson (who would vote for a retired IRS commissioner?)
If developed countries stop using fossil fuels, it will only encourage their use in poorer countries, as the fuels become cheaper.
For example, when discussing this graph, the article mentions:
in Yokohama in March 2014 , authors and delegates spent a considerable amount of time negotiating the temperature axis.....as a response to the insistence on the part of some parties, including St. Lucia, Saudi Arabia, and Bolivia, a second thermometer was added to the right. For many delegates, it was fundamental to not omit in this crucial figure the 0.61C change that had been accumulating..... fierce debates erupted over the visual highlighting of certain temperature targets in the graphic......St. Lucia, supported by Dominica, Jamaica, Tuvalu, Cuba, Mali, France, and then also Germany, requested a third dotted line at 1.5C......others considered it policy-prescriptive and hence inappropriate for the IPCC whose mandate it is to be no more than policy-relevant. A compromise to add dotted lines at all 0.5C increments, offered by the IPCC authors as well as Belgium, Austria, the U.S., and others, was rejected. In the end, the graphic was approved, without any horizontal lines, as most ‘scientifically neutral.’
Less well known perhaps is a critique from feminist social scientists who interrogate what may be deemed ‘acceptable’ and what may be ‘dangerous’, and for whom, and who contest the global community as a homogeneous entity. Joni Seager, for instance, demonstrates how notions of acceptability always mirror ‘a prism of privilege, power, and geography’ . She argues that those for whom a 2C target [are] politicians and economists from the global North deeply entrenched in a masculinized rationality that nature can be controlled and that in the imminent climate race with inevitable winners and losers they will be among the former. Seager rejects the notion of a 2C target as a real geophysical threshold that neatly distinguishes between little and much danger
That is worth a read for educational purposes alone.
Now, I remember rumors that when she was fired, engineers at HP spontaneously started singing, "Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead."
She was the most powerful business woman in the world for a while. And that's how people remember her. If she can build on that reputation, she has a chance.
I don't think she can build on that reputation, and I don't think she has a chance......but she does.
