The Internet lately has become full of human goats scaling inane heights, and vertiginous places.
More Solar Jobs is a Curse, Not a Blessing
Wasteful, and inefficient is no way to replace our existing electrical power producers. The next generation of electrical power generation will be more efficient, less wasteful, not less. There is no way to the future by returning to the past.

Serious charges demand serious penalties, but here she gets nothing of substance, only a slap on the wrist. This is how you get more of this epidemic.

The vanishing animals that future generations will never see
Progressives believe humans are the highest form of alien life on planet earth, and either humans need to be cut back, the native animals need to be saved, or both. This is a rare insight into the progressives deeply conflicted belief set. On one hand they believe in sciency things, especially sciency things like evolution. On the other hand, they don't because they believe in this need to keep everything exactly as it was in 1970. That is the magic age for progressives, 1970.
This is the insoluble puzzle, to believe in two conflicting things at the same time, and not get intellectual frisson.
Saving this, or that animal will not return us to 1970, and the progressives have to come to grips with that. This is a cargo cult of nostalgia, with its desires to return to the 19th century, transportation is a good example: light rail, commuter rail, streetcars, and subways, these are not functional in the modern world, cost exorbitant amounts, but make the progressive feel more comfortable with the (non)pace of progress.
Animals, and plants have been going extinct since shortly after the first, and will continue to do so regardless of man's involvement in the biosphere. We might want to get used to it, and not make a cargo cult of this process.
Hilarious Peer Reviewed Climate Hoax: “The conceptual penis as a social construct”
Peer review is just a way of making things which aren't very valuable look valuable.
'The androcentric scientific and meta-scientific evidence that the penis is the male reproductive organ is considered overwhelming and largely uncontroversial.'
That’s how we began. We used this preposterous sentence to open a “paper” consisting of 3,000 words of utter nonsense posing as academic scholarship. Then a peer-reviewed academic journal in the social sciences accepted and published it."
"The Postmodern-generator, the random nonsense computer used to generate much of the content of the hoax paper, is available here.
I have got to admit, I’m so used to wading through peer reviewed climate garbage, I would likely have accepted this study at face value. The hoax paper simply doesn’t stand out that much from other nonsensical peer reviewed rubbish written by climate and social studies academics – which of course is why it was accepted by the journal."
Now you can make, and have published your own peer reviewable paper. Feel free to name me as a coauthor if you need.
