How do you support this? Does this mean that you expect no more glacial periods? I certainly can't speak for Chris, but I was under the same impression as him. I think the biggest support is the very climate reconstructions from AGW proponents like Mann et al that lead one to declare we are coming ...

The wiki clip makes it clear we are still in an ice age. Where does it say we are in an interglacial? It defines a glacial period as increasing glaciation within an ice age, and interglacial as decreasing glaciation. Since we've been in a period of retreating glaciers over the last several hundred ...

We are IN an ice age. . (at least, the tail end of one)... and at some stage in the future won't be any more! Sorry, it was not clear. Not potato vs potato. We are not IN an ice age. An interglacial is the opposite of an ice age. We're not yet in an interglacial. We HAVE GLACIERS. Sure they are dis...

But we are currently coming out of an ice age! Of course the polar caps will melt! What are you talking about? Sounds like someone hasn't bothered to point that out to you! Fancy that! Not quite the story of global warming the mainstream wants you to hear, is it! We are at the end of an interglacia...

I think there is worry that the increase in temperature will accelerate the melting of the polar ice caps raising sea levels. A 1-2 degree although small to us is significant overall. There's a lot of concern by coastal towns and low-lying islands or island nations. Maybe I'm calloused, but I don't...

I always find this a really odd statement. Is it not usually colder at night than day time? I can absolutely assure you that there are solar cycles that impact temperature on Earth. Uhm, we are talking about the 11 year solar cycle, what are you talking about? IIRC, the solar cycle causes a tempera...

The part that always confuses me is that the sun is the source of 99.999999% of all the heat the Earth receives. Actually, I am not entirely sure about that. I understood the heat from the core was not a totally insignificant fraction. Don't have the figure to hand, though, and maybe it is difficul...

Disregarding the global warming aspect of the post, I want to say that the solar cycle only has a very limited affect on the temperatures on earth. I always find this a really odd statement. Is it not usually colder at night than day time? I can absolutely assure you that there are solar cycles tha...

In your application, why do you need mm accuracy? Can you go with cm accuracy? Think MIT's efforts at augmented reality off GPS, only not just a gimmick but actually working as imagined. For real-time head and pointer tracking the difference between cm and mm gets big very fast. How many objects ar...

I looked at the Cricket system - position locating receivers inside an instrumented building is something different to me. I don't have any experience with it. It's a deceptively tricky problem when you want multiple devices with high accuracy and at a high polling frequency. The cricket gets a lot...

The timing issue as stated is handled by Atomic clocks. These colocks are silly accurate, and keep the entire system in synch. Yep, the problem is my application needs better than silly accurate, I need an impossibly accurate clock. Not even the most expensive atomic clocks available right now go m...
