     This one, from the Davis article.

quote:

We simply don’t know positively whether recent human activity has caused the planet to warm up to dangerous levels. But we do know that those who insist it has are sometimes disingenuous, often profit-minded, and nearly always impractical.”

Ok, you have me confused. Yes, it's from the article John gave the link to. I saw no reason for duplicating the link.

     To avoid confusion among people who don't necessarily follow your own train of logic without some time-wasting backtracking and a few helpful clues, like the initial quotation marks.  I know I should have picked up on this stuff sooner, Mike.  I know you're not writing a dissertation, and I'm not expecting one, and I wouldn't want to have to write to those standards myself.

     Just enough so I can stay on track and not get confused.

John made the quote with link in #44. I repeated it, highlighted, in #46. If that was too confusing for you to follow, then I can't help you stay on track. Unces had no problem following it ... [Edit - Ron]

     Uncas is clearly brighter than I am.  Be a big enough guy to write so fools like me can follow at least the mechanics of what you're saying, please.  If I hadn't actually had a problem, I wouldn't ask.

Newly released emails from Solyndra executives show that the Department of Energy pressured the failed solar energy company to postpone announcing layoffs until after the 2010 midterm elections.
First reported by The Washington Post, the emails show a Solyndra investor warning the company against announcing layoffs before the Nov. 2 elections, because the company's loan draw for December had yet to be approved by the Department of Energy.
Democrats suffered a "shellacking," in that race — and an announcement that a program funded by the controversial stimulus program was in trouble, likely would have hurt Democrats further.
Energy Secretary Steven Chu will testify before the committee on allegations that his department mismanaged the loans for political reasons.
