I have moved the last page. But I thought I'd leave those last two in place as a warning for others.

If you want to follow the drug debate further may I suggest

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4372

Or you could search with a search engine "endocannabinoids the regulators of the body". For those of you not adverse to science. And this from NIH:

viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4366

And a few others from NIH:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12897199

Endocannabinoids and the regulation of body fat

Endocannabinoids in the regulation of appetite and body weight

Do you really think that with our moron-in-chief who's so vested in "green energy" we wouldn't have heard about it if this worked perfectly right now?

Are you sure he wouldn't kill it? He wants excuses for more power, not solutions.

I think as long as we see money in the can, it is moving forward with a sense of viability.
As long as www.fpds.gov shows them alive, I think we can assume there is money in the can.

May 3 2012 EMC2 was awarded a $5.3 million contract (N6893609C0125) for work over the next two years. so the funding does not stop until 9/30/2013 and at that time (sooner by completion reports we will know) so it looks like we are stuck with each other until then. :?\

Maybe, but the funding process seems to de-emphasize results in favor of campaign contributions.
n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

Insurance companies aren't big into science fiction. They're more concerned about things that are going to impact their bottom line.
Indeed. Irrational panics are an insurer's best friend, they get to collect premiums for insuring against things that will never happen. 8)

As I said before, the problem with CAGW is that it's speculative. It could be true, but there's little more reason to think that we're going to experience catastrophic warming than there is to think we're going to experience catastrophic cooling (which would be far worse, an extinction-level event), and past climate models/predictions have a terrible track record (and the CAGW crowd has been notably mendacious about those predictions).

I also have to add that the behavior of people like Mann "you can't have my data," Hansen "Auschwitz," and Jones "delete FOIA requests" has been truly atrocious, and peer review has become a bad joke.

Frankly, I have severe doubts that climate is even deterministic within the relevant temperature ranges. But it makes for great enviro-politics, so I guess we'll keep spending tens on billions on it.

Old NM PR. I believe that "plasma instability" issue is ancient history, back when they had an arcing problem, maybe 4 years ago, longer? I had not seen that picture though, is it WB7.1? It is not WB8 based on the picture in the microwave measurement paper, look at the seam welding.

Yes it is "old". Widely discussed when it was news.

Hence the book State of Fear was written by Michael Crichton. It was the Sci Fi book that changed my thinking on GW.
