LANL Study Says Climate Models Are Bass Ackwards

Cooling trend could be on the way (for the Southwest) unless thwarted by greenhouse gasses

http://www.lanl.gov/news/releases/dry_lake_reveals_evidence_of_southwestern_megadroughts.html

I used to work with some of the authors. There have been hundreds of newspaper articles recently about how climate models say the southwest is going to turn into a towering inferno, but apparently there are still some scientists left who actually go out in the field and study how the real world works.

Also, I’m pretty sure that the word “gasses” only contains two of the letter ‘s’.

    According to:

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gases

    ..it can be either, however I’d say in this case you’re right. Gases is a collective noun, gasses is a verb.

    Nonsense: only in American spelling.

    In BE [British English] gasses are gasses and waggons are waggons. The US spells them as gases and wagons.

    Whereas the US correctly spells tires as tires but in BE pneumatic tyres are spelt as tyres: tires are for iron ones on railway wheels or indeed horse drawn waggons and the like.

    No idea why.

    Kindest Regards.

      I’ve no idea either, but the point of language is to be able to convey a thought or thoughts back and forth between entities. Tire or tyre……unless we’re speaking of an ancient Palestinian city, we probably understand.

        I think that they were called Phoenicians in ancient times although I understand that the whole area has long been called Palestine.

      • suyts says:

        True that, and ty for making my point! You’re a gentleman and a scholar!

    • Dave N says:

      I’ll accept that 🙂

      Personally, I think English is the crappiest language on Earth, but it’s what I grew up with, so I’m kinda stuck with it. French is much better, and I’m working on improving it..

    I always heard that being only able to spell a word one way was a sign of lack of creativity! 😉
