    There we go, now it’s buried.

    I’m pretty sure burying that thread benefits you far more than it does jbc.

    he used some pretty words but the fact is I was right.

  5. Smith Says:

    You’re still confusing “fact” and “opinion”. Those nuns really dropped the ball with you.

  6. shcb Says:

    When you’re right you’re right, it is my opinion. It is my opinion this was a study that kept refining the parameters until it could make the predetermined point it wished to make. Then even that very narrow point was misrepresented. The study said that 98% of the most published of the signers of a few documents think global warming is primarily due to human activity, the representation given was it is 98% of all climate scientists. There are enough wiggle room words in there to make it more my opinion that fact but I think it would hold up in a court of law.

    You’d never get a judge or jury to listen.

  8. shcb Says:

    I certainly hope judges and juries have better things to do.

    That solar road looks good to a point, seems they are spending a lot of time on the fun stuff without getting down to the job of making it pay for itself, still have the storage problem. Looks like a fun little project.

    Yea, like imagine how lighted roads could transform Las Vegas from the humdrum little desert town it is now into some sort of spectacle.

    :-) Gosh, it might even invite an industry built around night life to prosper. so what happens in a traffic jam? during a snow storm? at night?

    Actually, the big push we are seeing now is making a roof panel that has solar cells painted on it, they are getting close, it looks like we are about 10 years away. As that technology is evolving somone else is working on hybrid trucks with the same coating on the roof of the truck, of course it only works during the day, but it is a standalone system that does what it can.

    I’d imagine the court would be more interested in the testimony of those who know what they are talking as opposed to the ranting of an armchair “expert”. But I guess you should never be surprised by the ignorance of a jury.

    Ha ha Smith, you got that right! I’m as good a bullshitter as they come, I’ve actually engaged in sexual congress with women way out of my league due to my gift of gab, thank goodness the lovely lady I have enjoyed the last three decades with doesn’t venture here. A little self congratulations is in order here, third grandchild has arrived, fourth on the way in April.

    Spray-on Solar Cells. So much potential.

    Very, very cool. Almost as cool as the navy video above.

    Efficiency of the unit vs cost of production… I like the UV spectrum pickup! Absorb as many wavelengths as possible and then make it as cheap as possible. Maybe these UV print folks, the road folks and the nice folks at nanosolar could all get together and put the oil barons out of business?

    the only thing ‘right’ about wrong wing nut job is his extremist politics (oh dear, here comes some folksy anecdotes about how stupid libs is… ending with some cussing, then the death threats. There. I’ve saved this thread about 40 comments. That’s some energy efficiency for ya).
