Trying to capture the cost of massive social disruption, species extinctions and even existential risk in terms of lost GDP seems increasingly bizarre. When that’s presented as a main argument for cutting emissions, it seems we’ve missed something -- as Nordhaus notes here. 3/3

The first thing I always want to know when I hear about someone's startup is what is _essential_ to them, and therefore tightly held, and what is simply _functional_, and can be discarded or rethought as needed. Can't have a real conversation until that's clear.

3. RE sources can be deployed at almost any scale and lend themselves better to decentralized forms of energy production and consumption. This adds to the democratizing effects of RE.

4. RE sources have nearly zero marginal costs


Why renewables will transform geopolitics:

1. renewable energy (RE) resources are available in one form or another in most countries, unlike fossil fuels

2. most renewables take the form of flows, whilst fossil fuels are stocks...energy flows are harder to disrupt

There are clearly loads of people who are really passionate about building practical solutions to help to fix climate change. This is great news! Do we need a place for this community to gather? An online magazine? A database of projects? jack-kelly.com/blog/2019-01-15

Our first four students hired at @CloverPOS@twitter.com start today!

These four worked together all through Lambda School and all received the same (well into six figures) job offer. None of them had a Bachelor’s degree or experience. So proud of them.

Congrats, you four!

"the data is incomprehensible for patients — a hodgepodge of numbers and technical terms in formats that vary by hospital."

I think the NYT just double-dog dared us.


"there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years"

This article is completely mind-blowing. The head of astronomy at Harvard, using some newer calculations, makes an awfully compelling case that Oumuamua was, in fact, an (extremely!) ancient non-human solar sail.

Eventually Trump is going to sell Delaware to Putin and use the money to pay off a bad real estate loan Jared got from a Turkish bank and then flip the building to some Qataris who funneled money into Ivanka's lipstick brand and maybe then like Jon Cornyn will say "Enough!"

"President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter"

Enough. Enough.
