Posted in: Do you agree with the decision by many global companies to sever their business ties with Russia because of its invasion of Ukraine? See in context

The change will have to come from within Russia itself. I at first suspected the oligarchs would put pressure, but they have little. Then, I heard his daughters were worried about being Putins, scorned everywhere. But it will have to come from the Siloviki, the former KGB and other nasty folk now in government and in the ear of Putin. They are the ones who did the poisonings for Putin, and can see what Putin is doing to their nation now.

The poor Russian people have never known good government, and now their crazed Putin is taking them down with himself. How many more will die before he is stopped?

It will be interesting to see if they got away with trying to normalize now.

Let us hope so.

It will get worse. The permafrost is thawing, releasing massive amounts of Methane a greenhouse gas about 80 times the potency of CO2. We cannot stop it now, having Methane seeps in Antarctica already.

Thank your local Denier.

Posted in: Do you think Russia is going to invade Ukraine? See in context

I think the cost would be too high, and Putin needs an "offramp" of some kind, but this may be a diversion from what he is really doing in other worlds of evil.

There seems to be insufficient infrastructure for China to take over as the primary market for Russia right now, but I expect it.

Posted in: Climate change: Thawing permafrost a triple-threat See in context

With the greenhouse activity of methane, the outgassing of the permafrost, already in process, will give us no chance to avoid terrible clalmity.

I earned a Master of Science in this field and there is no escaping it now.

Many millions will starve in a few years. Before that, many places will become unlivable for much of the year for humans.

Posted in: A 21st-century reinvention of the electric grid is crucial for solving climate change crisis See in context

Excellent article. I live in California and am retired. Being a former engineer for a large power company and having earned a Master of Science in Energy and the Environment, I had PV panels installed six years ago, with my estimated payback of 15-17 years, . . the right thing for an eco-freak to do. Before they could be installed, we acquired a VW e-Golf electric car. The savings in gasoline alone took the solar system payback down to 3 1/2 years. So, we added a used Tesla Model S, P85, and that took the payback down to less than three years, which means we now get free power for household and transportation.

But that is not all: We do not need to go to gas stations, we fuel up at home at night with cheap baseload power. During the daytime, the PV system turns our meter backwards powering the neighborhood with clean local power, which we trade for the stuff to be used that night. If we paid for transportation fuel, the VW would cost us 4 cents/mile to drive, and the Tesla would cost 5 cents/mile at California off-peak power prices.

No oil changes are a real treat along with no leaks. And since it has an electric motor, it needs NO ENGINE MAINTENANCE at all. We do not go "gas up", or get tune-ups or emissions checks, have no transmission about which to worry, no complicated machined parts needing care.

You will love your EV.

Find a picture of Kim at the recent tenth anniversary of a Kim death. He is obviously depressed, knowing he has failed in his policies. Not a good sign, as it invites instability and instability means extremism.
