It’s a tragedy Nobody can be sure what the potential performance of power would be in ideal world, but we are certainly far away from it. Also the industry was historically arrogant, over-optimistic, and sheltered by regulators (esp bef. FERC). Distrust lingers.

Fascinating paper by Rebecca Diamond and co-authors finds that immigrants account for up to 30% of innovation and United States, as measured by patents. Far disproportionate to their numbers in the population.

I spoke to several entomologists about all those insect apocalypse stories. The claims that insects will disappear within a century are patently absurd, and the data are patchy, unrepresentative, and piecemeal. But the reality is NOT reassuring.
