I am probably channeling the ghost of Don Quixote. I am starting this years’ Daylight Saving Time (DST) rant early. Maybe it will get more traction. DST is as awful as it is illogical. There. I said it. Feel free to hate on me. I have done plenty of stupid things in my life and […]

Some of you might be familiar with the song referenced in the title of this blog entry. If not, you can probably easily find this Beatles tune on Youtube or any other music service. It is the first thing that popped into my head when I read the news about an engineer taking carbon dioxide […]

How are the bees doing?

Back when I kept the big list of bad things that were going to be caused by anthropogenic global warming (AGW), one of the items that made the list, and then didn’t, and then was back on again, is bee-colony-collapse-disorder (BCCD).
