Pseudo-Random Thoughts

Worth Buying:  This weekend's Wall Street Journal, if only for Roger Pielke Jr.'s op-ed, "My Unhappy Life as a Climate Heretic".
Much to my surprise, I showed up in the WikiLeaks releases before the election.  In a 2014 email, a staffer at the Center for American Progress, founded by John Podesta in 2003, took credit for a campaign to have me eliminated as a writer for Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight website.  In the email, the editor of the think tank’s climate blog bragged to one of its billionaire donors, Tom Steyer: “I think it’s fair [to] say that, without Climate Progress, Pielke would still be writing on climate change for 538.”

WikiLeaks provides a window into a world I’ve seen up close for decades: the debate over what to do about climate change, and the role of science in that argument.   Although it is too soon to tell how the Trump administration will engage the scientific community, my long experience shows what can happen when politicians and media turn against inconvenient research—which we’ve seen under Republican and Democratic presidents.
Here's a summary of the findings that made Pieklke into a heretic:  "There is scant evidence to indicate that hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or drought have become more frequent or intense in the U.S. or globally."

Good news, right?  But not if you have been predicting weather disasters.

Incidentally, I think he is right to use a religious term, "heretic".

(You can read much of the op-ed at Watts Up With That?, or use the usual Google search trick to get the whole article, if that issue of the Journal is sold out by the time you look for it.)

Sometimes You Wonder Whether TV News Readers Know Anything About What They Are Reading:  And sometimes you don't.

For instance, yesterday I heard KOMO's Lee Stoll refer to South Korean President Park Geun-hye as "him".

I listened to the rest of the program to see if anyone would correct the mistake.   No one did.

(Stoll has quite pretty hair — and interrupts her co-anchor on their Saturday morning program so often that, when I watch their program, I have begun doing so with my finger poised over the mute button.)

I Think I May have Linked To this cartoon before, but it is so good that it is worth a second look.

(This painting may be one of the inspirations for the cartoon.  And, on a more serious note, here's a map showing the campaign.  It's on my top-ten list of greatest graphics of all time.)
- 10:57 AM, 4 December 2016   [link]


Two 4 Percenters:  Think Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are unpopular?  You are right; in fact, you might even say they are historically unpopular.

But neither comes close to President Park.
South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s approval rating fell to 4% amid a deepening political crisis, marking an all-time low for any democratically elected leader in the country, according to Gallup Korea polling.

Fears of policy paralysis prompted by the political crisis also dealt a blow to consumer confidence, which fell to its lowest in more than seven years in November, South Korea’s central bank said.
Or to President Hollande.
François Hollande, France’s unpopular Socialist president, announced Thursday night that he would not seek reelection in 2017.

“I’ve decided not to be a candidate to renew my mandate,” he said on French television.
. . .
A recent poll conducted by Le Monde newspaper placed Hollande’s approval rating at 4 percent.
In the circumstances, his decision is not difficult to understand.

President Park's problems should worry us more, since they may tempt North Korea's Kim Jong-un to do something rash.

Three Fun Facts About Vitamin D:  Which I discovered just the other day.
  1. Vitamin D is not a single compound, but a group of them, of which D2 and D3 are the most important.
  2. Some authorities believe that Vitamin D should be classified as a hormone, rather than a vitamin, since we synthesize it ourselves (with some help from the sun).   The term vitamin, they think, should be reserved for chemicals we have to get from what we eat and drink.
  3. Like everything else, Vitamin D is poisonous in large quantities.  Since those quantities are smaller, proportionately, for rats and mice, it is sometimes used as a rodenticide.
And one serious fact:   Rickets, the best known Vitamin D deficiency disease was almost eliminated in the United States by 1945, but is still common in some developing nations.

There Are Some Puns That Are Almost Too Perfect:  For instance:
A man's three sons went out West to raise cattle.  Soon their ranch was a going concern, but they hadn't been able to think of a good name for it, so they asked their father for a suggestion, when he came out for a visit.

He thought for a few minutes, and said:  "Call it Focus — because that's where the sons raise meat."
Though I love that joke, I wouldn't tell it and expect gales of laughter, even from people who love puns.

(I found the joke, in a different version, in Asimov's first collection of jokes.)

Two Tacoma Shooting Deaths are this area's big local story.
TACOMA, Wash. - A man suspected of fatally shooting a veteran Tacoma, Wash. police officer was shot and killed by authorities early Thursday after an hours-long standoff in which he was using two children as shields, reports CBS affiliate KIRO.

The 45-year-old officer was killed after responding to a domestic violence call around 5 p.m. on Wednesday.
So far, our local news organizations have given us hours of coverage, but very few details less than a minute of actual news.

There Is Many A Dry Eye In Cuba, After Fidel Castro's Death:  But Cubans know not to show their real feelings.
Many Cubans, especially those old enough to remember the Revolution and the early years of communist nation building on the island, are genuine in their grief over the death of the man they saw as a national icon who defied the United States for more than half a century.  But the state-imposed nine-day period of mourning also left little room for Cubans with a more dissenting view of the deceased leader.

“You need to be very careful about what you say”, one artist in Havana, who asked not to be named out of fear for reprisals, told FNL.   “Any opinion that isn’t in line with the national mourning can have consequences."
I watched some of the mourners on BBC, and listened to some of what they had to say.   For the most part, they looked, and sounded, like people who were doing a chore their jobs required, not people who felt a great sense of loss.

Yesterday Afternoon's New Yorker Cartoon is more likely to make you think than laugh.

But you are almost certain to get a chuckle out one or more of the recent "A-Hed" articles.

"Regular Milk May Beat Low Fat for Kids"  According to a Canadian study, summarized in the New York Times.
After controlling for age, sex, outdoor play and other factors that affect both vitamin D levels and weight, they found that children who drank one cup of whole milk per day had a vitamin D level comparable to that of children who drank 2.9 cups of 1 percent milk, but their body mass index was lower by 0.79 points.  The higher the fat content of the milk they drank, the lower the children’s B.M.I. and the higher their vitamin D levels.  The study is in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
For what it is worth — very little — I switched to whole milk from 2 percent about a year ago, and have it most mornings with with cereal and fruit.  I did that partly for the taste, and partly because I think the extra fat might help me absorb more Vitamin D, since it is one of the fat-soluble vitamins.

(The "lactose free" milk I have been drinking for years seems identical to non-treated milk, except that it tastes a little sweeter.)

The Best Single Piece On Fidel Castro's Death I've Seen Is By Richard Cohen:  The best, because Cohen is a man of the left, the democratic left.

After criticizing President Obama's morally vacuous statement on the death of the Cuban dictator, Cohen continues with this:
Trump, on the other hand, awoke on Saturday twittering.  In a tweet, he remarked that Castro had died and in a statement he denounced him as a 'brutal dictator."  It is an odd and sad day when I agree with Trump and disagree with Obama and feel, moreover, that the learning-unabled president-elect has expressed American values while the president has expressed no values at all.  Here, once again, Obama ignored the past and all its complications and instead focused on the future.  "During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us," the president said.  The past, possibly.  Memory, never.
I can't be the only one who suspects Obama would have liked to attend Castro's funeral, but chose not to for political reasons.

Unlike Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Obama didn't make a complete fool of himself, so I suppose we can be grateful for that small favor.

(The most comprehensive indictment of Castro's career that I've seen is by Peter Hitchens.

Andrew Stuttaford reminds us that Castro urged Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev to start a thermonuclear war with the United States, which most of us would consider a blot on Castro's record.

The funniest reaction to Castro's death I've seen comes from the BBC, though I am reasonably sure they weren't intending it to be funny.)

Nancy Pelosi Wins Another Term As Minority Leader:   Defeating the first serious challenge she's had, in years.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi swept aside a challenge from Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan Wednesday to win another term atop the Democratic Caucus, ensuring continuity for Democrats despite their poor performance on Election Day.

Pelosi beat Ryan in a 134-63 vote, securing the two-thirds support within the caucus she had claimed earlier this month before Ryan officially jumped in the race.
Pelosi has not had a serious challenge before this year.  Considering her string of losses, in 2010, 2012, 2014, and now 2016, that's surprising.

She had the support of a group that usually does not endorse Democrats.
Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi has received support for the House minority leader position from an unlikely source.

In a back-handed endorsement, the National Republican Congressional Committee announced they were backing Pelosi for House minority leader.
Republicans believe — correctly — that Pelosi has helped them win elections; I think she would have done the nation (and her party) a favor, if she had retired, long ago.
- 9:56 AM, 30 November 2016
Correction:  I originally wrote that Pelosi had had a serious challenge in 2002, when she first ran for Minority Leader.  I've corrected that in the text above.  (I must have mis-read something in her Wikipedia biography.)

Before this year, her worst result was after the 2010 election, when 43 Democrats voted against her in the caucus — and 20 voted against her in the House.
