imageBeckhams a ‘bad example’ for families – David should go forth and multiply, then very nicely tell these green ‘Saviours of the World,’ these repressed preachy misses, wannabe fascist busybodies, to mind their own business, and to depart sexually.


Ban outdoor lights while mandating use indoor – It must be hard for so few to have so much power over the small details of so many. Oh, the burden of decisions, and sacrifice, to save the planet. In what critics call a classic case of the government working at cross purposes, Washington is forcing residents across the country to install mercury lighting inside their homes while phasing out mercury lighting outside homes to protect the environment.


Massive snow down under – In buses, trucks, cars and homes thousands of people have been stuck in small towns or on roadsides today as heavy snowfall caused a number of major routes across South Africa to be closed.


Junk Science Unravels – The scientist who claimed that global warming threatens polar bears is under investigation. Hopefully this is not another fraud, which would continue to bruise the reputation of serious science.


Park service to thin out Yosemite’s trees

– This is not going to go down well with Greenpeace.


Environmentalism no longer a movement – It is an industry and, for many, a dark green religion. It also appears to be a collaboration with the US government.


0.66°C/century for AGW – How do we detect the influence of humans on the climate system? Current methods based on climate models are unfortunately circular: their estimate of human effects is only valid if the models are correct, but the models make certain assumptions and also are fitted to the historical temperature record. A model-independent estimate of climate response is needed and is provided by this study: Loehle, C. and N. Scafetta. 2011. Climate Change Attribution Using Empirical Decomposition of Historical Time Series. Open Atmospheric Science Journal 5:74-86.


imageOops…sheep shear tree rings – Further evidence that tree rings are terrible proxies for historic temperature records, unless very, very carefully used. There is a published reference to the introduction of large commercial sheep flocks in the late 19th century in the White Mountains CA [St. Andre et al. 1967], where the key sites of Sheep Mountain and Campito Mountain are located. The founder of the Sierra Club, John Muir, complained of the depredations of sheep in the Sierra Nevadas (adjacent to the White Mountains) as “hoofed locusts” [Muir, 1911]. Carl Purpus, a late 19th century botanical collector in the Sierra Nevadas, stated in 1896 that commercial flocks had cleaned out all grass to the top of Old Mt Whitney [present-day Mount Langley, which reaches 4,280 m] [Ertter, 1988]. Allen (pers. comm., 2004) said that there was a large commercial sheep trail at Jicarita Peak NM, another bristlecone pine site studied by LaMarche and Stockton [1974].

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
