Allergy H-e-double-toothpicks, Global Warming & Schiff Brings Home Lean, Green Pork

This regularly scheduled blog has been interrupted by seasonal allergies. Here is a picture of sinuses as modeled by Barbie’s older, plainer sister. Here’s a blog by a fellow sufferer.

I’ve got tissues in one hand and the remote in the other. Back to baseball, and if I can manage it, a bit of Pasadena city council. (Already saw public comment by Falun Gong folks.)

Went to the Global Warming discussion at Caltech today hosted by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA)—we are in deep doo-doo, people. Check out panelist John Seinfeld’s recent Watson lecture here. Information about other panelist David Rutledge’s upcoming Watson lecture here (17 Oct. 2007) entitled “Hubbert’s Peak, The Coal Question, and Climate Change.”

Let’s hear it for the clumped isotope method.  This coral bleaching thing sucks.  Wikipedia on the issue here.

And just in case you were wondering about Adam bringing home the pork, well, according to PA Pundits, who claims all this talk about global warming is hysteria, Schiff secured $500,000 “for a fuel-cell project by Superprotonic, a Pasadena company started by Caltech scientists.” Superprotonic doesn’t seem to have issued their own press release about this. Hmmm. I’ll shoot ’em an e-mail and see what gives.

UPDATE: Found this press release from June 07 at Schiff’s site.

    Oh good. glad you announced it (the talk) and went. Was it well attended?

    The auditorium at Beckman Hall was packed. Some were standing in the back–I sat on the steps to listen.
