Jop Yap on Trump-Putin connection

Posting with permission Dr. Josef "Jop" Yap's take on the recent US elections. The images are my addition, not part of Jop's paper. My brief comments after his article. ----------- *The Russians Did Influence the Outcome of the 2016 US Elections* *Josef T. Yap* Many are stunned and dismayed by the victory of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States. He was a severely flawed candidate, the Republican Party was splintered, and he was behind in the polls. However, Trump actually obtained less votes than Mitt Romney did in 2012 and is barely ahead of the 2008 total of John McC... more »

"It would be so much easier just to fold our hands and not make this fight... to say, I, one man, I can do nothing. I grow afraid only when I see people thinking and acting like this. We all know the story about the man who sat beside the trail too long, and then it grew over and he could never find his way again. We can never forget what has happened, but we cannot go back nor can we just sit beside the trail". - Poundmaker, Plains Cree Chief, 1842-1886. His dying words.

Yet somehow, perhaps beyond perception, there was a great click, after which suddenly a new friend appeared, an idea was imparted, or a connection established, causing the tides to turn and the floodgates to open. And remembering this, should such "alone and uncertain times" ever revisit you, however dark they may seem, yo... more »

Energy 81, Trump's climate and energy policies

Anthropogenic or "man-made" climate change (CC) hypothesis is actually 5% climate science and 95% political science.

*Leonid Bershidsky, Bloomberg:* *Putin Knows Working With Trump Won't Be Fun* In Moscow, many allies of President Vladimir Putin appeared to be in a festive mood after Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential election. They aren't stupid, though: They know the gap between Trump's relatively pro-Russian rhetoric during the campaign and his actual policy may be "yuuuge." The celebratory noise is tactical -- an attempt to flatter Trump so he doesn't forget all the nice things he had promised Putin while he ran against that notorious Russia hawk, Hillary Clinton.

A koruna black swan: Czech National Bank was probably mass buying Swiss francs

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 18 hours ago
This is a short comment elaborating upon Euro-koruna cap may collapse already in 2016 which I described in September. Note that the Czech National Bank has been artificially weakening the Czech crown (koruna) – much like its Swiss counterpart used to weaken the Swiss franc – since November 2013. It's been over three years now. One crown wasn't allowed to strengthen past CZK 27 per euro. For a year, the rate was about 27.5 but in the recent year, it was really close to 27.01 at all times. The EURCZK graphs show that since the Brexit referendum, EURCZK was totally boring, around 2... more »

Trump: The Left Just Lost The War On Climate Change

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
During the past two decades, global temperatures have essentially not budged after their half degree rise of the previous two decades. ( if that much at all ) During this time period the amount of human CO2 surely doubled. What this means is that any hypothetical connection between human burning of fossil fuels and the climate is nicely disproved. I thought as much in 2007, but still understood that the increased heat on the Northern Hemispheric had not fully worked itself out yet. Now the disconnection is clearly proven. Add in that the Antarctic remains in a deep freeze t... more »
