Frank Acland: Perhaps you remember that we made R&D also using gas as a fuel. That line of R&D has been carried on and we are now preparing for a pilot jet engine gas fueled hybridized with an…"
"Fibb, you've slightly misquoted me but its up there, so I won't bother saying it.
OK, I'll let Fibb's, EI's, even maybe B's BS narrative, more to the liking of many here, go unchallenged. Fibb, I promise I'll…"
You owe me many answers from the last many pages. Not clear why you expect me to answer every question when you dodge all the difficult ones yourself.
Needless to say, I have already answered Q2. The modelers DID assume CO2 was…"
"tom is really eager to post a reply to anyone as long as he gets to say there is and will never be no product.
It's interesting to me how damn concerned he is that his narrative doesn't lose it's prominence."
"contra-factual speculation is fine - but it is also fine to point out why it is contra-factual.
But in this case I have not as far as I can see contradicted what you are saying. Just added a bit. Perhaps you'd like to lay bare your own biasses…"
"You've answered (1) as yes. Good. We can agree on that.
You've not answered (2) yet.
I guess because it would undermine the point you are trying to make. The modellers have never assumed all the rise is due to CO2. It is people like Nick…"
Sometimes I wonder about you. Of course one can't forecast unpredictable events like volcanic eruptions. Somehow you often manage to miss the point, which is the modellers didn't take account of the multidecadal…"
(1) Can you imagine a climate system in which medium-term forecasting is dominated by inherently unpredictable things: MDOs, solar variability, volcanoes, anthropogenic aerosols? (yes/no/maybe would be helpful)
(2) Do you undertsand that…"
"(1) You can't have an NDA that stops you from saying what you have not seen. IMHO.
(2) Zenn have on occasion said what they have not seen, e.g. MB in milestome interview, JK in e-mail after testing, etc.
It is fair deduction from available…"
"Am just curious where tom acquired the exact wording in the NDA. Until he has, the below statement is merely another of the suppositions he seems so fond of making.

"Really? Nine pages obsessing over salary? Get a grip folks! When EI and Student agree on this, it's time to move on. The root of the problem is no product and the angst from that, not salaries. But this is the ride…"
