More Climate McCarthyism from Science Deniers




Science Deniers and well paid advocates of Anthropogenic Global Warming / Climate Change freaked out last week because the evil Koch brothers - among others - provided $1.2 million in funding to Willie Soon, a prominent skeptic of AGW.  The Guardian hyperventilated this headline "Work of Prominent Climate Skeptic Funded by Enery Industry" and the excerable Democratic representative from Arizona, Grijalva, quickly fired off a letter to 7 other prominent Climate Skeptic inquiring, "Are you Now or Have you Ever Been a Climate Skeptic"

This high dungeon by these Ass Clowns would be funny if it were not actually having its intended effect of chilling debate and driving real scientists, like Roger Pielke Jr. of the University of Colorado out of the field.  Peilke, one of those named by the excerable Grijalva's as a Climate Denier, wrote a blog post title "I am Under Investigation" detailing the incident in which he proclaims his intention to abandon the field to these fools.  I hope he does not, but his frustration is understandable.

Why the Science Deniers who advocate reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 - which would require the US to cut carbon emissions from 6 billion metric tons to approximately 1.2 billion metric tons, a per capita emission rate last experienced in the US in 1905-1910 - are flinging poo and rocks in the glass house of research funding is beyond me.  At least one journalists, Henry Payne in the article "Global Warming: Follow the Money", honed in on glass house argument.  Maybe these McCarthy style witch hunts will prompt more such investigations and the media will delve into the source of funding for the Science Deniers who advocate reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 in hopes of slowing global warming by about 1.0 Degree Celsius over the next 100 years while they simultaneously agree that neither India nor China intend to commit economic suicide by depriving millions of their citizens of access to Hans Rosling's Magic Washing Machine.

I've always argued that Liberty, aka private property rights, Capitalism and Cheap Energy raise more people out of poverty than anything else.  And Hans Rosling's discussion of the Magic Washing Machine reinforces that argument. Let's hope the Science Deniers and the McCarthy style supporters fail in their latest efforts to stifle scientific debate.

Designing for the Internet of Things




Professor Rodolphe el-Khoury has been selected as the new Dean of Architecture at the University of Miami.  He presented at the TEDx conference in Toronto where he discussed the concept of Designing for the Internet of Things.  Interesting thoughts.


Lots if interesting thoughts.

3D Printer Prints Houses in China




More grist for the 3D Printer mill and the never ending uses of concrete.

A Chinese company uses a 3D-printer to print houses for rapid assembly in China.  Printing components from a mixture of sand, concrete and glass fiber, all materials processed from common construction waste, the process holds promise.

The commercial 3D printer used is over 6 meters tall and 32 meters long.

The video isn't the most slick production you'll ever see, but it will be of interest to most.
