    NNE Winter Thread

    Stowe has always been the more upscale and expensive option, Vail did nothing really to change that. As PF has said, they ( a long with most of the industry) has trended to lower price but higher volumes of season passes and really tries to push people in that direction. Sugarbush IMO seemed to have put some pressure on the other resorts in the area in this regard before Vail purchased Stowe, but the Vail had been moving in that direction anyway. They make less money on the people who ski a lot, but more on the people that only ski a few weekends/and travel out west and who are now tempted towards passes. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Driving back from skiing... 24 and snowing pretty hard in central VT has given way to 44 and partly cloudy in Manchester, NH. The transition is crazy. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Just slant sticked my way to 2.5 inches of cake batter in the front yard in Narragansett. Long way to go to reel in the 10-18 forecasted. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Disappointingly only 2 inches or so in the backyard here in Narragansett. Wind is whipping though and raining down ice chunks from the trees. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    The Non-Expert Problem and Climate Change Science

    I think it is the general polarization of most issues which is at fault in sapping the intelligence out of the discussion, and it is a feedback loop, where one side (either denial or alarmist) reports something extreme either for clicks(sensationalization) or dumbing it down. This causes people on the other side to radicalized or shut off rational discussion, which repeats and furthers the cycle. I think there is also the element that certain people will never listen to science if it conflicts with their convenience, no matter the soundness and neutrality. This creates the opportunity for people in the media to search for and report the answers they and their audience want to hear. Overall, this creates an environment where people are more likely to sensationalize because they believe if they don't, the other side still will and the consensus will shift away from them.

  10. I didn't realize I was in a court of law. Thanks for the warning; the Internet is serious business Also, how do you know I even typed all that? The science on the forces acting on our galaxy and universe are not known with certainty, so what I actually typed could have been corrupted on the way to the forum servers by quantum thingys. Finally, all this talk of dishonesty from you certainly rings shallow. Your whole presence on this forum is a facade. You make phony posts about innocently pursuing the truth and true science, yet clearly have no intention of actually, honestly doing that. You never acknowldedge science contrary to your beliefs or admitting your errors. A clear example of this is this exchange. 1. You make an ignorant comment about renewables not being a meaningful energy source. 2. You are provided with pretty clear evidence to the contrary. 3. You post some stupid comment about dishonesty that reads like you are talking down on everyone and think you are intellectual superior, without actually acknowledging the substance of the evidence you are confronted with. I know this forum is supposed to be clear of this ad hominem stuff, so from here on out I am just gonna ignore your posts. Keep on fighting the good fight!
  11. I don't think it was too dishonest of a paraphrase of this comment. Notice the "it's just not there yet." If you are actually open to learn, wind and solar installation was responsible for >60% of utility scale capacity installed in 2016. http://www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.php?id=25172 This is hardly indicative of "just not there yet." Additionaly, this growth shows no sign of stopping as prices continue to decrease rapidly. This is from a recent report from Lazaeds showing LCOE of projects across technologies. LCOE is not perfect in several ways, however it shows how inexpensive properly sited utility scale renewables already are, and they will only get cheaper Also, btw, I am not a dr, so no reason to refer to me as such.
  12. Are you serious? You must be really out of the loop(to put it kindly) if you think solar and wind dont already play meaningful roles.

    I would say a good portion of that is wind blown. Radar looks good there, so some of it is fresh, however I heard it's also pretty windy.

    Feb 9th Coastal Obs

    Just took the dog for a walk in narragansett. Thundersnow, whipping wind, and visibility down close to 150 feet. Pretty awesome out, with someone in the neighborhood zipping their snowmobile around.
