    My Tesla costs <$6 for a 385 mile charge. With no oil changes every 7k and 30k service fees, I just need to spend a little time on the cord.

    That’s sweet at tax time.

    If we needed to wear gloves, it was too cold to make snowballs. Your hands made up the difference that Frazz was seeing in the strip today. Suck it up and warm your hands when it’s over.

    Put some more numbers in that comment (beyond the last line) and I’ll read it again.

    Your reference to “a lower frequency to which the glass is not as transparent” is what we refer to as relative transparency. It’s like an electrical resistor having less conductance.

    Nothing to be sorry about. The strip is about a school setting and a few of its characters. Like real education facilities, the original plan is often set aside to teach to the moment.
    We’ve gone off on topics from medicine to finance to vocabulary building to self delusion and anti-intellectualism.
    There’s seldom a week goes by that we aren’t exposed to an idea that’s new or at least a fresh take on an old problem.

    I agree that all changes produce new sets of winners and losers. Some of us would like to pick which group we’ll be in. Can’t work for all.
    Given that, what is your “calm as a frozen lake” take on a growing world population that is growing dependent on a food supply supported by the use of fossil fuels? …and how’s that working?
    Biologists have watched other populations reproduce to extinction and describe it as “insects eating their way through a loaf of bread and increasing their number all the way to the far crust”.

    There should be a name for that condition. For twelve years, I worked for an administrator who would reject any proposal that he couldn’t understand. We eventually spent more time writing in terms so simple and general that we could have ended up doing just about anything.
    His favorite response would be, “I don’t understand why you want to have that.” We would answer, “You should only need to understand that we DO want that or replace us with people you can trust.” He’d answer something to the effect that we were the best he could get and that he couldn’t think at our level. Nice comment until you have to go through it every week.

    Unlike our “windy” friend in IL, I am nice, Bill; and I am a scientist but not a climatologist. As such, I look for a chain of effects that may lead to consistency.
    If you have greater insight, set me straight.
    I understand the relative transparency of glass to various wavelengths of light. Hence, the greenhouse effect of greenhouses. There are gasses that work the same way in the atmosphere, and carbon dioxide is an example.
    A lot of fossil fuels were created by prehistoric plant life. We don’t really know the extent of the current reserve … 1950 estimates predicted that we would be out of methane years ago and that’s now a glut on the market.
    As we burn those reserves, we return the CO2 level to those early tropical levels.
    Help me here. What’s the outcome? I understand that the warming is slow and global, and not to be noticed any more than geological changes. Except when it’s your mountain that gets turned upside down.

    A significant part of the climate change we are in involves the big swings mentioned today. Locally, the record high and low for yesterday came two years apart and were both less than five years ago.

    Often, when we are either having hot / cold / wet / dry spells, the paper will print the five most extreme years. Too often, at least three of them will be in the past decade.
