No seriously, the radio is not connected to the computer system, the comptuer system is extremely conservative by many standard and is not connected to the in flight wifi. You cannot have an air-gap attack without a microphone or similar device.
The gao report is a complete nonsense and was laughed out by all technical people involved in the computer system of airplane or in flight entertainment.
"So, Mr cyber Expert and Pilot, other than saying "nuh uh", do you have anything to suggest there is no chance of this?"
Aside complete network separation and absence of microphone ? Really guys sometimes there is absolutely NOTHING about threat reports.
"get a shop to bake you a gay mariage cake" => "you may not impose those poor sales peopel to sell stuff ! Religious rights ! Right to discriminate ! Eleventy !"
This is in a nutshell the big hyprocrisy. they are for the rights and freedoms that conservative likes, but those right and freedom they do not likes, suddenly are to be made illegal.
The funny things is that there is more religious interdiction that conservative breaks, which are cited far more than homosexuality, but conservative ignore them, because they would look stupid upholding them (think not eating shellfish or mixing cloth of different fiber, working on saturday/sunday or paying 30 shekels in silver and forcing a woman to marry her rapist). On the other hand homosexuality which is barely mentionned suddenly is a religious freedom issue. The sad reality is that it is not a religious aversion, it is a disgust they feel at homosexuality and they try to make up any excuse to impose their own disgust over the population". Well anyway I can't wait for this generation to "pass away". In 20 years all republican of today and tea party guys of today will be seen the same way as those who were for racial separation back in the 50ies / 60ies : they will be seen as incredible biggoted fucktard.
It is simple, if the enemy can cut off your signal, then make the absence of signal the trigger. Deadman switch.
NASA, JAXA and similar outfit drool at the perspective to have a long term project where they need to send a lot of cargo up, means a lot of contract and assured budget.
Those folk tells the space solar collector are possible and desirable.
The folk at energy production on the other hand use a calculator for cost of setting up, maintaining compared to generated energy and they usually view that as possible but not profitable compared to a similarly sized (in megawatt) installation on earth with physical batteries.
Sorry I i trust far more than who are involved i energy generation, than those involved into profiting by cargoeing the stuff.
It is not as if using google was hexenkunst...
Our crop are starved from other stuff than carbon. if carbon was the problem only, we would put carbon in our fertilizer. But we don't what provocated an explosion of food production was not the CO2 increase during industrial revolution up to today, but NPK fertilizer (nitrogen, Potassium, phosphorus).
While it is true that plant growth would increase as a whole, our crop would still be far more dependent on fertilizer than CO2. And then there is the impact of the change of climate on the zone where the top soil is best for crop growth. If the winter and summer become more extreme, wheat growth might hit a water problem. What good is CO2 if you have not enough water to fix it ?
