re: Duke University study: Our climate models are Wrong: - Taxing Authority
The DailyMail's take is (generously) hyperbolic. That said... saying the current "anomaly" within the "anomaly" is within bounds of the noise envelope of the model, should be enough to tell you that models are not accurate enough to tell us very much. Saying "natural variability" is greater ...

re: Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz on how to solve U.S. income inequality - Taxing Authority
[quote]This argument refuses to recognize proportionality.[/quote]Indeed. We are all equals, treated equally by our government, right? Why do some get to drive on the roads for free, while <20% pay almost all of the taxes? If you want to recognize proportionality--"the rich" should get special treat...

re: Nobel Prize winner Stiglitz on how to solve U.S. income inequality - Taxing Authority
