Weekly summary - May 29, 2010

Cottage - hot dry weather, couldn't go this weekend - darn! Looks like a drought, which will burn the blueberries.

Geology - South and Central America volcanoes, most likely just pretty fireworks. People are talking that the bigger, more pronounceable volcano in Iceland may be ready to blow, but I think they are just talking through their hats. That oil well is something!

Global - Global Goring is coming under increasing attack. These climate guys are just short-term, straight-line chart extrapolators. Try to do that with the stock market! Their physics for CO2 is all poof, and the only hard-core physics we have is that the Sun is starting to fade. I hope this summer is still good!

Niagara Tunnel - These guys are tighter than North Korea! No more progress reports. They only like to report the good news anyway. One must assume that things are not happy in tunnel-land. On the other hand, the contractors are making out like bandits, with them getting whatever they are asking for. We are going to get a gold-plated, failing tunnel!

Earthquakes - nothing big,.
