The rest / Re: Good music

For me, you can't beat a nice big symphony. Listen to the magical opening of Bruckner's 4th.


Classic KING-FM radio in Seattle, often plays Bruckner on their 3rd High Definition Digital Symphonic radio station. Yesterday, they played Bruckner's 7th Symphony. Three or four times I've dialed into the channel to hear Bruckner's 8th Symphony. Somebody at KING loves the 8th.

More Tesla jokes.....
Meanwhile, the Tesla 3 is NOT a joke & is better looking than all previous Teslas..... plus all other viable EVs of ANY brand, which is a delight to potential buyers who put $1000 on the line, two years previously. Tesla 3 is very efficient (tho I may hold out for a 64kWhr Ioniq). Tesla 3 has innovations other brands don't have, all backed up by in-house battery & solar cell energy productions. Those complaining about Tesla have to be short sellers.
Tesla colors have to get strong 3-D metal flake paints, like so many other brands also need.

I'm not saying an economic decline won't happen..... I would like to see more evidence of this....
Ah.... you ain't watchin' all the lawsuits against the "don'T rump" administration efforts to poison various portions of the population & environment. Companies don't know if "don'T rump" stuff will last or anti-"don'T rump" stuff will grind all the "don'T rump" stuff into dust. Yeah, companies don't know how to set up their long term directions in their board meetings.

.... American Taxpayer has really deep pockets.....
Yeah, American weapons are 30% more costly than russian gear & communist chinese gear. American weapons work. russian gear & communist chinese gear LOOK like american weapons knock-offs, but havin' their prop-lums, tho.... Even when russia & communist china steal american info, the russians & communist chinese still can't get it aworkin' right.
Lurch can't type fast enough to keep up with russian & chinese communists mistakes.

How I Talk to My Daughter About Climate Change
As a reporter covering the environment, I'm all too aware of what the next 50 years could hold. As a 9-year-old(daughter), she's not—and for now, she wants to stay that way.
https://www.theatlantic.com/family/archive/2018/04/raising-kids-climate-change/554969/
Quote from the article:
My daughter is 9—9 and a half(daughter),.....doesn’t want to know about climate change. Not from me, at least. Not yet......
My own responses to climate change have, inevitably, affected my daughter.
///////
When I was 6 years old, playing out in the front yard, with our small town Main Street on our yard's border, I suddenly looked at some of the passing cars' exhaust pipes with little trails of exhaust emitted that disappeared into the air. I knew enough to know that what had "disappeared" was still in the air. I'd been to the smaller city fairly near to us & knew many cars with exhaust pipes puffing, also had "disappearing" stuff. I knew about big cities around the world with millions(more?) of "puffing" cars. At times, I'd stood by idling cars, that smelled bad & made my throat tickle. I didn't like it & believed that adults must be working on the problem to solve it. I grew older & found out that adults were working on........ "some of the problems". & later I discovered that adults were....... NOT "working on the whole problem".
Children know more than you think they know & excellent education teaches them more than "adults know".

I like to use Daylight Hours Explorer. It lets you choose latitude and day of the year and gives you a visualization.

And you consciously choose "to believe" the Washington Post's reporting......
Ah, Lurk earns his name, answering within minutes, even giving years' old fishheads which I never smelled. Ya ken tell Lurk listens intently to FOX, which was created only to keep future re-pubic-lick-un PRESSY-Dents from impeachment. Jawohl!  That Robert Mueller chopper is makin' "don'T rump" nervous......5000 lies & rising. Seems that the Post will report more "don'T rump" lies & I'll do more..... extrapolatin'.

What a nice wank that was.
"pears Lurch is gettin' nervous 'bout "don'T rump" lies. Lurch seyz he don't care fer "don'T rump", altho he supports him more than a jockstrap.

While everyone keeps focusing on Trumps "disapproval" ratings they ignore the fact he is much more popular than Congress is.
"yes people" don' get no respect, specially dem dar "re-pubic-lick-un" con-greasy-men & See-not-turds.

 The Washington Post has documented 4229 lies by "don'T rump", as of Aug. 1, 2018, at a rate of 7.6 lies per day. At that given rate extrapolated to today, "don'T rump" should have lied 4571 times. However, the Washington Post reports "don'T rump" lies are up to 5000, showing that "don't rump" is getting nervous. Now that 5 hirees of "don'T rump" have been convicted (& flipped) for a Robert Mueller 100% prosecution (& flip) rate, "don't rump" may only has his children to place between himself & the Robert Mueller chopping block. When such occurs, "don'T rump" has to worry about losing his fingers, along with his relatives. Maybe "don'T rump" can hunch down & hide behind innocent Barron, who is a growing boy.

that's really really great news for once, i excpect/hope for huge improvements especially in volume measurements which IMO is the most important indicator for all climate and polar ice related things.
Ah, with recent "don'T rump" supporters Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Chris Collins,  & Duncan Hunter (& wife) headed fer the pokey to join a growing group of greedy gaolbird re-pubic-lick-uns, maybe "don'T rump" ain't got no time to oppose this moment of AGW science advancement.

Just read some estimates of maximum re-charging cycles for various levels of EV battery high charge/low charge for the New Nissan Leaf w/40kWhr battery pack, 2.0. The Nissan Leaf 2.0 is embroiled in "Rapid-gate" right now, due to its battery cooling, dependent only on air cooling & no thermal management liquid cooling. Possible Nissan reliance on air cooling, might be due to lower speed limits, shorter distances traveled, & lower temperatures in Japan.
 With careful charging up to only 70% & careful discharging to no less than 20% charge, one can expect as many as 6000 useful charges. However, allowing charging to 80%, will lead to only 3000(+?) cycles. With wild abuse & assault against EV batteries, constant charge to 100% & dis-charge to 0%, only 500 working cycles can be expected. Again, this is dependent on the Japanese conditions of lower speed limits, 60mph & lower(?), shorter distances traveled AND lower ambient temperatures. In addition, careful Leaf EV battery temperature management may include cooling periods of 10 minutes, after traveling to a charge station AND BEFORE beginning to charge, even in cool weather below 50 degF. Higher ambient temperatures will extend cooling periods BEFORE charging & during charging. It appears that to maintain the potential for long battery life, Nissan has imposed a strong decrease in battery charge kW, in the second & following charges, to help cool EV batteries during longer trips needing multiple charging sessions. Of course, this means drastic increases in battery charge time periods, really crippling any ability for "quick-charge & away we go" conduct. 
Now that Nissan Leaf is turned loose into the uncaring hands of Americans, we can expect lots of of complaints of "battery failures", as Americans try to drive the Leaf like an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle.   
Now EVs using thermal management liquid cooling ain't off the hook, either. Americans, who still will drive their EVs like ICE vehicles, must be reminded that even liquid battery cooling has its many limits & EVs cannot be driven like ICE vehicles. But such warnings are hard to hear, as Tesla drops the hammer on its strong accelerating Model 3 & 60+ kW-hr battery packs enter the market in the Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Kona, Kia Niro & many(?) others.

....don't be masochistic ( posting in their forums ).....
That could be true. B-B-B-b-b-but, look what I found out!!! AGW deniers, when they try to use mathematics, have made errors as great as 1000 TIMES, 500 million TIMES & the greatest error was 1,000,000,000,000,000 TIMES.
 Yeah, gerontocrat has the right idea. Beat them up with mathematics.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste... and remember what peace there may be in silence.
Authoritarians, Kings, & dictators always tell the people they suppress to have such attitudes. Remember: Speaking up leads to health problems.

Arctic sea ice / Re: Global sea ice area and extent data
« on: May 12, 2018, 08:46:14 PM »
la nina/ neutral year .....yet again flirting with lowest on record levels .....Miocene here we come?
That's on my mind as well.  I will hasten to add that 2010, 2011 and 2012 were La Nina years.
Its best to consider that the solar TSI has been languid for 50 years & low for 11+ years (including a 3+ year period, setting a 100 year record low radiation level). Yet, global sea ice continues near its least quantities.
