I guess we don’t use function keys, but it took a little getting used to the fact that F3 doesn’t mean F3 unless you hold down the Fn key at the same time.
Go to "System Preferences" -> "Keyboard" -> "Use all F1 F2, etc." Then all your F keys will be F keys again. I do this because I have a program that uses F keys to F things.
Well, that's certainly consonant with the other things he's done.
Well, it's obvious that post-SDC somebody will be operating this huge fleet of self-driving taxi/transport vehicles
But it's not obvious SDCs will be here any time soon.
Sure, they lost 96% of their share value in two years when it popped but those who never got on the hype bandwagon mostly lost everything and are nowhere to be found. To be honest I don't really mind a SDC bubble where everyone goes crazy because it will also accelerate change, the dotcom boom/bust might not have been good for investors but the transition from offline to online went pretty snappy.
That's an interesting point. Bubbles aren't the worst thing.
Can you convince 51% of the voters of that?
Yeah, I think so. The problem will be convincing them that they aren't throwing their vote away.
We may biologically survive 1000ppm with only chronic nausea and headache
No, you're off by an order of magnitude. For those symptoms you'd need more than 10,000ppm in the air.
The math of climate change is fairly straightforward.
No it's not. The basic part (how much extra warmth is absorbed by the 'blanket' is simple, and a little more complex but still understandable (when you include the extra energy radiated by a warmer object) , showing that doubling CO2 will warm the earth between
That's not scary for anyone, though, so there are many hypothetical feedbacks that will theoretically make the earth even warmer, but they are controversial, not well-understood (the error bars are gigantic), and involve plenty of math. Among scientists, the feedbacks are entirely where the controversy lies.
I think its abundantly clear these people ARE NOT in fact any more fit to lead than the usual poster here.
Yeah, actually, I don't have any doubt that I could be a better president than either of our current two candidates. And I don't mean that as boasting or anything, there are plenty of people here on Slashdot who could do better. It's pathetic, really.
We find that the proxies do not predict temperature significantly better than random series generated independently of temperature.
