"Parallel - they do take into account MDOs - that is the whole point! Otherwise they could not do this.
But MDOs are classic chaotic weather patterns that no model, however clever, can predict 15 years in advance.
I've been telling you this…"
"From the recent interview of Ahern, this comment on the piece.
I find this all too common in the timid science community that seems to have forgotten how to do simple experiments. Seems to me science has stagnated for the last fifty…"
"In 1940, sure, but not now. Nuclear would work now, and for the foreseeable future. Greenpeace et. al. might claim to favor fusion, but if it ever achieved they will turn against it (unless it is the unlikely aneutronic…"
"Technopete & ee-tom,
I have been saying for some years now that Akasofu was right and models that don't take MDOs into account are certain to be wrong. Now it seems someone in the climatologist community has finally noticed this…"
"Thanks, DGD! Nice to see there are some efforts being made to find and fund alternative paths to commercial fusion, other than just the Polywell.
And we "needed" commercial fusion power by 1940, if not earlier, to head off the growing…"
"This is more Pollyanna claims from the wind power industry. The truth is that wind power can, and frequently does, vary across wide regions.
To quote from a website devoted to giving actual facts and figures detailing these…"
"This is a clever idea. It is interesting that ENSO variability seems to account for nearly all of the last 15 years variation. There are other candidates.
It is supported by recent work showing that ENSO phase is correlated with trade wind…"
