  • Replied in A Question
    Which is?
  • Replied in A Question
    Maybe ExxonMobil would 'go along to get along', even if the science did not support AGW (which it does). However, I doubt it. They are a high-tech company, full of smart people, and if they had ...
  • Replied in A Question
    It's more important than you seem willing to accept. Not aimed at you in particular. Aimed at you. Now we are even. :-)
  • Replied in I have both
    Can you say more about why you prefer the X-T1 images, or even better, post some side-by-side comparisons of the same subject, if you have them? I've looked at your E-M1 and X-T1 galleries, and ...
  • Replied in A Question
    As I said, it's an important topic and worth discussing. You could try not being abusive. That phrase is my acknowledgement that others understand the science better than I do, but those people are ...
  • It does have a definite meaning. It means a sensor the same size as 35 film. Was it a good choice of terminology? Maybe not, but we are stuck with it, and it's not worth worrying about, IMO.
  • Replied in A Question
    I don't particularly care what comes out of ExxonMobil, but I find it interesting that they acknowledge AGW science, even though that's not in their economic interest. Do you agree or disagree with ...
  • Replied in A Question
    This is an open discussion forum, not a photography forum, and climate change is an important topic. At least those of us who accept the science try to stick to the facts, as we understand them.
  • Replied in A Question
    I certainly understand the politics, but a better explanation is that the people at ExxonMobil acknowledge the well established physics of greenhouse gases, and that they accept the reality that ...
  • Replied in A Question
    The fact that those "ACC zealots", as you call them, have scientific evidence and research to back them up is relevant, don't you think? Those "zealots" include every national scientific ...
  • Here ya go.
  • I've read that the CAF is better, but that the SAF is the same.
  • I agree that it would make more sense for the camera to turn off when the review button is pressed. Pressing the on/off button does turn it off, but about half the time, I forget that.
  • A plus for me too. This is a great feature, and quick, although I think it would be more convenient with the lever, rather than the front ring. I have my left button set for this. I kept the center ...
  • The M1 is a bargain. I live in a sunny climate, and the EVF is very useful here. The mechanism may seem weird in concept, but it takes about a half second to open or close it. Again, a matter of ...
  • Without our greenhouse gases, the planet would be cooling. That CO2 increases when temperatures rise does not change the fact that when atmospheric CO2 increases, temperatures rise. "The AGW" can't ...
  • Yes. Unadulterated racism: "If they are not looting, they are knocking people out randomly..." Racism is attributing characteristics, usually negative ones, to all members of a race.
  • Replied in No.
    Not actually. Look up his quote. Here's a summary of the current state of climate science from a guy, Richard Muller, who is definitely not an alarmist: A Skeptics Guide to Climate Change And ...
  • Replied in No.
    One scientist predicted that the polar ice cap could vanish by 2013, not that it definitely would vanish. His was a minority position. Most scientists believe that it will vanish by mid-century. Th ...
  • Replied in No.
    You asserted that catastrophes from AGW were predicted to have happened by now. What were they, ans who predicted them? The basic prediction that adding CO2 to the atmosphere would cause the planet ...
