This is the latest Energy Related newsletter from John Droz.
This first link is to a tribute marking the sad passing of Professor Bob Carter.
RIP Dr. Bob Carter (the tributes will tell you all you need to know about this good and competent person I was privileged to have as a friend).

Unprecedented Weather: Is Climate Change Happening Now?
Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Once legislators have grasped that concept, the foolishness of the “leveling the playing field” idea also becomes apparent. (Should the 18-wheeler trucks and golf cart playing field be leveled?) Additionally we should be using the term “unreliables” when speaking of renewables. Please pass these on.
Please pass this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people.
Thank you for your support.
