Robert Laughlin on AGW
Tom Smith

He's going to get a lot of flack for writing this, but he has his Nobel Prize in physics and seems to be one of those guys who is not afraid to say what he thinks.  Give a a somewhat arrogant scientist not afraid to think for himself over some smarmy organization player any day.  The summaries I have read of this article make me think we view attempts to regulate carbon similarly.  This article deserves to get more play in the blogosphere than it is getting so far IMO.

I read Laughlin's book A Different Universe and liked it a lot, even though I was aware of many points going over my head.  I don't feel entitled to have views about string theory, but if I had to bet, I would bet it is pretty bogus and that what we see in the universe is a lot of emergent phenomena rather than elementary ones.  But heck that's just a guess!

You can't put an animal raised in captivity, in it's alleged natural habitat. I bet so much money this chick wouldn't last in the wild for more than 5 days.

If she didn't take herself so seriously, this could be a funny piece of performance, but instead it's kind of embarrassing.

You really get what you pay for with the Rosetta stone language courses . If you’re looking for other benefits, consider that fact that you don’t have to commute to college in order to learn a foreign language. Rosetta stone’s lack of compatibility with PDA’s is not a very serious drawback, especially if you don’t want to drive or walk to school anyway. If you intend to study a language entirely at home, then Rosetta stone is the best alternative to sitting in a class room. Another benefit of utilizing this powerful language learning tool is in preparation for a college course. You can use the software to learn the language and then fly through your college course, get a letter A grade, and apply the credits toward a degree or certificate. I think you will have interests to see rosetta stone discount.

Water resistance is up to 20 atmospheres, so you shouldn’t be afraid to get wet. The Alpinist should be a capable tool for all those hikers out there.
