What's more likely?
Clean Technica claims a million dollars investment in wind or solar creates twice as many jobs as an equivalent investment in coal or oil. They also argue the EPA is a net winner which comes as no surprise.

What I want to point out is that energy companies are an order of magnitude more likely to have the capacity to turn public opinion using FUD.

The pursuit of advertising revenue creates echo chambers in all media, not just far left and right. Is it possible this perpetuates a pathology?

What is a practical demarcation between normal and deviant in politics if we define politics are group affiliations that affect the welfare of the whole of society? What is politically inhumane?

A GOP discussion on Twitter influenced me to try to find a reliable psychological take on the percentage of the population that deviates from normal and constitutes the voting right and left.

If we suppose that Obama's vote contained a block of voters that only came out because the Dems fielded a Black candidate, is it reasonable to guess that Trump's vote contained a block of people who were attracted to him due to self-identification?

She was talking about a specific group who were supporting Trump precisely because he enabled their deviant tendencies.___

Keep the peripheral, swap the computer. It's just that some peripherals appear to be larger than the computing hardware today.

The thinking with the Compute Card is to separate the smarts of various computers and appliances—all-in-ones, smart TVs, fridges, digital kiosks or signage screens, commercial equipment—from the rest of the hardware. You might want to keep a TV around for the better part of a decade, but the processing hardware inside it could start to feel slow three or four years in. With the Compute Card, one could simply eject the old card and slide in a new one instead of replacing the whole thing.___Keep the peripheral, swap the computer.

Advances in the field of genomics over the past quarter-century have led to substantial reductions in the cost of genome sequencing. The underlying costs associated with different methods and strategies for sequencing genomes are of great interest because they influence the scope and scale of almost all genomics research projects. As a result, significant scrutiny and attention have been given to genome-sequencing costs and how they are calculated since the beginning of the field of genomics in the late 1980s. For example, NHGRI has carefully tracked costs at its funded 'genome sequencing centers' for many years (see Figure 1). With the growing scale of human genetics studies and the increasing number of clinical applications for genome sequencing, even greater attention is being paid to understanding the underlying costs of generating a human genome sequence.

This is a good lesson for all sorts of reasons, not the least of which is the danger of being frozen in time.
Worrying that there are no transitional fossils.
Worrying that Michael Mann's statistical ability is seriously flawed.

Cleveland clinic disciplines Dr. Neides for spreading misinformation about vaccines, supporting the anti-vaxer agenda.

Where to begin with Neides' disinformation? For starters, there is no "regular" flu vaccine with "mercury" in it. There is a multi-dose flu shot with the preservative thimerasol, but the one-shot vaccine that most Americans get has no need for that at all. Beyond that, the mercury in thimerasol is ethylmercury, a form that's easily expelled and causes no harm. Even still, thimerasol was phased out of all vaccines except the multi-dose flu shot, and even that is rarely used, and thus hardly to blame for children with autism.
...
Formaldehyde might sound bad, in other words, but fear mongers are exploiting ignorance: Dosage matters, and a pear contains 7.5 times as much of it as a flu shot. ___This is a good lesson for all sorts of reasons, not the least of which is the danger of being frozen in time.

I'm so glad he can grapple with the philosophical foundations of the semantics of language. Too bad he thinks it has something to do with science.
He's pretending the IPCC publications are scientific statements. They are political. He's pretending models that predict are key to understanding climate change. They aren't. Then he links that to the phrase "beyond a shadow of a doubt" but that's not where anyone discussing climate change connects that phrase. We use it in the context of saying it is happening beyond a shadow of a doubt, not in terms of prediction.
