Quote of the Day
How’d that work out?
If anything, it seems that the election (and re-election) of the first black president has actually aggravated racial issues in America. If you want my opinion on why — and you probably don’t — it’s because we specifically elected a black president instead of a president who happens to be black — i.e., his election was more because of racism than a triumph over it.

Q: how do we know that the presently-approved alternatives, i.e., wind, solar, do not themselves alter climate trends or equilibria? Perhaps the instantiation of wind turbines disturbs natural wind patterns, or the absorption and channeling of solar rays into domestic energy use alters radiation/reflection patterns, such that they may do more harm than good, in the long term.
It just seems that in our ignorance (and arrogance) we tend to quite muck things up. ...like dams mess up fish reproduction patterns and silt washout, but we didn't appreciate the consequences of that for decades....
