That's a brilliant article by Richard Drake.
It pretty well nails my feeling that people can agree about what they're against and they'll kick it firmly in the balls if given the chance but they really haven't figured out what they want to replace it with. In the meantime, any alternative approach has a chance of a trial run because the status quo is unacceptable.

Which type are you?

Hmm. Unsettlingly, that's quite close to home except that I definitely don't think of myself as an extrovert. Nonetheless, I did find the site more interesting and informative than I expected to.

Did you take the test yourself, Fintan?

Yep - I did it and figured I'd score with a
more reflective character type, but hey:

The "key" to Irma's path of destruction lies in the breadth and extent of the high pressure ridge situated to its north. As that ridge "builds" it creates a barrier as well as steering winds that "push" the storm to the west.

As soon as a low pressure "trough" can form somewhere around the US east coast, this provides an "exit strategy" for a storm looking for the path of least resistance. The weather can be fickle so Irma's track is very variable up until the last few hours. Eyewall landfall is a "local" disaster but storm surge is as destructive and covers more ground. Worse yet, as seen by Harvey in Texas, are torrential rains and flooding that can devastate a much larger area.

Watching the predicted "track" of Irma sheds light onto the frailty of the computer generated models used. Every 12 hrs (or so) new data is fed in and with the past data as reference, a new projected path and intensity is produced. As can be seen, the error "cone" associated with position can vary up to 150 km at day 3 and double that at day 5.

[/img]


Similar models are used to produce the impacts of global warming caused by [CO2] increase in the atmosphere. They, however, are updated at use and are parameterized to "predict" past temperatures etc. btw, they extend out decades in advance....not hours, nor days, nor weeks, nor months, nor years. The error associated with these "projections" defy reason and logic. But they are good enough to propose mitigation efforts.....sure they are Embarassed

What’s the difference between a cow and 9/11? Americans can’t milk a cow for 16 years.

Yes, 9/11 has been well milked. The media's annual genuflection
is now totally formulaic - a ritual like kneeling and facing Mecca.

I spotted this comment under that article:

Quote:
What most disturbs me most are those commentators on the Left,
people I most admire for independence of thought and incisive
investigative prowess, who still defend nearly in total the whole
Official Report. Folks like Chomsky, Hedges, (Amy) Goodman,
Harris, Greenwald, Scahill, that whole bunch.

I cannot believe all these people I consider courageous, virtuous,
and non-duplicitous have never looked deeply into what the co-
chairmen considered a deeply-flawed report that was set up to fail.
I can well understand a hypnotized and gas-lit Amerikan people.
But these guys?

I noted that comment myself. But speaking of comments, especially after Consortium News articles, the Truth and Shadows I linked above and even comments written here, is how so many comments quickly (d)evolve to anti-Israel, anti-Jewish (yeah, I said it!) remarks. (James Fetzer, can't stand that motherfucker but I do like his mini-nukes theory) Say the main author goes into some depth to to show how the US is actually supporting ISIS or Al Qaida in Syria rather than fighting the supposed perpetrators of 9/11, "the man bites dog" aspect being, of course, that the US should be killing the terrorists. Though the story is about what the US is doing commenters twist the angle toward Israel. Now, are the authors being coy, are they holding back on the Israel angle the same way journos hold back on 9/11 truth? Will they get too much grief, will it effect their careers if they hit Israel too hard? As you can tell my sympathies do favor Israel and in case after case where the author doesn't blame Israel or even mention Israel, commenters somehow pry Israel out from someone else's well crafted narrative and ruin my day and ultimately make peace harder to achieve.

Knee-jerk anti-Israeli or anti-Jewish mindset sucks.
I'm determinedly anti-Zionism, 'cos it's truly toxic.
But that's a political view - not an ethnic prejudice.

Anyway....
