More amazing stuff from this sojourn...
 
Diversity in America: Day 64.
Throughout the day I found myself riding side by side with a horse pulling along a buggy loaded with Amish people. This experience sparked the realization of how diverse America is.

An important piece of the puzzle moving forward
 
"To come up with a way to measure the societal value of building solar or wind farms, the researchers attached a monetary value to the pollution currently created by power plants—$20 per ton for carbon dioxide emitted. They did the same with costs associated with people dying from air pollution emitted from power plants—arriving at $6 million per person. Using these numbers, they were able to calculate how much money a region would save if they replaced current electricity plants with wind or solar farms. In so doing, they found a wide range, from $10 per megawatt hour in Arizona to $100 in several northeastern states".

"That worries Manuel Lopez, whose family owns El Milagro, a tortilla and tortilla products company in Chicago. “We’ve always used non-G.M.O. corn,” he said, “and our concern is about our supply.”
Consumers are driving a movement toward labeling food products made from genetically modified organisms, and food producers are responding.

Implications abound.
 
Weather Extremes Tied to Jet Stream

One of the +The Associated Press 's "Big Stories" today is an article by +Seth Borenstein examining the possible contribution of changes in the atmospheric jet stream to recent extreme climate events. There are valuable perspectives from +martin hoerling , +Harold Brooks , Rutgers' Jennifer Francis, and +Jeff Masters  of +Weather Underground .

I had no idea until today that Disney tried to trademark "SEAL Team 6" 2 days after the famous operation. Unreal, yet so much so not.

From the WSJ " Walt Disney Co. said Wednesday that it would pull an application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in which the entertainment giant sought the exclusive right to use the term "SEAL Team 6" on items ranging from toys and games to snow globes and Christmas stockings."

Hopefully this is not just a PR move. Not to be a cynic or anything.
