Tyler, question for you:  What's the best way for a lowland dweller to know there's a temperature inversion going on, so that he might hike out of the clouds?  The normal weather forecast pages like weather underground don't seem to cover that.

Wow, that's a fantastic resource, thanks!  I found a guide to reading those and the map page for picking the locations near me.  One question though - what's the difference between the 12km and 4km soundings?  The resolution of the model?

"Even the conservative National Journal ..."
Norm Ornstein (of the AEI!) says Republican obstructionism on the ACA is not quite treason, "just sharply beneath any reasonable standards of elected officials with the fiduciary responsibility of governing."

If only congress wanted to know the truth.

...
So when businesspeople like me take credit for creating jobs, it’s a little like squirrels taking credit for creating evolution. In fact, it’s the other way around. Anyone who's ever run a business knows that hiring more people is a capitalist’s course of last resort, something we do if and only if increasing customer demand requires it.

Further, that the goal of every business—profit-- is largely a measure of our relative ability to not create jobs compared to our competitors. In this sense, calling ourselves job creators isn't just inaccurate, it's disingenuous.

That’s why our current policies are so upside down. When you have a tax system in which most of the exemptions and the lowest rates benefit the richest, all in the name of job creation, all that happens is that the rich get richer.

This former Wall St. trader says many things I believe to be true.  The question is how to fix the problem.  A radically more progressive tax system would help.  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/19/opinion/sunday/for-the-love-of-money.html

A very succinct way of expressing a concept that I believe to be key: while money is a very useful tool, it is only a tool.  What really matters is what we can do/produce, what we choose to do/produce, and how we choose to distribute what we produce.
 
Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed.
-Mahatma Gandhi

There is enough to go around, but those that feel entitled to sleep on piles of money don't want people to have food, clean water, shelter, and other basic necessities because they might not work as hard. That's messed up.

Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.
- Nelson Mandela
