To all the anti-vax, anti-mask, anti-everything people, this is the logical conclusion of “freedom”.

Arctic sea ice / Re: 2020 Sea ice area and extent data

It has taken a lot of time and energy, successes and failures to build a library of spreadsheets and data sources. So it is a bit annoying to think people have to wade through a load of clutter to reach the data.

This is a data thread. So, please please please bring data or a new way of looking at the data (when discussion is great).
If not, bugger off.

* It's a lie: Baffin, Barents, Bering and (B)Okhotsk.

Why not just call it very bad BBBO?
Sea 3BO?

Arctic sea ice / Re: When will the Arctic Go Ice Free?
« on: July 23, 2019, 07:48:53 PM »

In the last interglacial, temperatures in the Arctic were much higher than today, and the world didn't end.


The world won't end. Just the humans and most species on it...

So you clearly didn't read the IPCC report that I linked to.

I must confess I did not, because I have more faith in my own gut instinct and common sense.

So does Trump but that does not make it the correct approach. Reading what Ken posted is useful and an informed discussion is far more useful as well.

(I am not comparing you to Trump. I would not compare anyone to the child rapist without having first hand knowledge of that person.)

If there are alt-right scum on the ASIF I am taking a walk.
Don't do it. This is what made B_L walk. Bad move, as it takes one alt-righter to drive away the good folks, giving a major win for the trolls.
The only solution is to ignore them and wait for them to incriminate themselves enough so Neven shows them the door.

If Tesla makes an annual profit (or if any other Musk company ever does, [currently about 0/50 ]) I will quit posting.

Hmm, until now i never cared about Tesla making a profit.

Elon went a twitter bender today...accusing the WSJ of shilling for big oil, doubling down of 500k annually, double down on giving the finger to the SEC, claim that super AI is about to super rule, etc.

My interpretation is the suicide by cop theory. He is trying to have the SEC or DOJ or BoD push him out. He likely doesn't want to be at the helm when Tesla becomes the first trillion dollar auto company. He is self-less and is trying to save the world. There is no room for running a successful business.

Tesla's capex is only 65% of depreciation. In layman's terms: their investing for future growth is less than their current wear and tear of their current equipment. So...the are spending enough to shrink in the future, not grow.

Also fun: Musk plans to slowly ramp weekly model 3 production this year from 5k to 7k...for a annual total of 350k to 500k. That is correct, they will be manufacturing cars somewhere between 55 and 85 weeks this year. Very disruptive. I can't believe Ford hasn't thought of this.

@ zizek  If you have recordings or notes of the Board of Tesla saying those things, then ok.  Otherwise it's you who are delusional.

comeon, that was sarcastic and quite obviously so and by no means literally speaking.

we all know when companies who are not profitable lower their prices, it's quite common and some know what it means and others don't depending on the viewing angle or bias if you prefer that term.

not that i think that the ad hominem part was necessary or is a good think to call out adjectives of that kind but the meaning is clear and true, the real reason is to keep sales up or boost them.

we can all watch what will happen not so far out when all other great automakers start to seriously serve the market, it has already begun and they (tesla) are already feeling it for sure.

I thought that 257K increase was a lot of fun!

Who needs a sattelite to observe the ice if we have a Tesla cruising trough space.
