there is no vrooming, in your zooming ... sort of like those electrical cars (but, they can make the tire squeek .-)
> There is a surprize in "the end"! Crazy!
thus: it is not a tax; it is just "free-er trade" using derivatives, the same as my Congressman's '91 bill -- which was a) mandatory, like the EU's CO2-trading, and b) approved unanimously by both houses!
> Prices in the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) on Thursday dropped to 2.81 euros a metric ton (1.1023 ton) after a vote in the European Parliament's energy and industry committee opposing a scheme known as "backloading" to support prices by extracting allowances from the market and reinjecting them later.
> SCHEME TO STAY > > Launched in 2005, the scheme is now in its third trading phase and is legislated to run until at least 2020, which means it cannot be dismantled even if prices crash to zero.
> "Many in the business community have been clear on this issue for over a decade - it's all about putting a price on carbon," David Hone, climate change advisor for Royal Dutch Shell said.
thus: what is the annual production of "petroleum" by the biosphere?
> Germany's cleaner air and longer, healthier life spans, > cost them less than 4 cents per kilowatt hour
thus: what about "Eastern" Antarctica, which has grown by kilo-gigatons over 2003-11; has it stopped growing, since then?... well, not according to Physics Today, December issue, on the GRACE datum.
> "OSU researchers say, W. Antarctic melting worse than estimated"
thus: what-it's-called, Chromatic Abberation is a property of all "media of refraction;" the speed of light -- not its God-am velocity -- is solely dependent upon the index of refraction of the medium, which is "greater than one for free space, much like the atmosphere."
I think, though, that CA has been largely solved for lenses. incidentally, most textbooks seem to use "ray-tracing" to solve such problems, and this is really where the ideal of "massless rocks of Newtonian untheory light" comes from; a simple, God-am reification of the God-am math.
