At the bottom line, the climate change problem we've been discussing represents very much how far induced self destruction can go.
half of US energy industry will be bankrupt in 6 months with prices at these levels.

The more sensible long-term model would seem to be reduce demand for fossil fuels in favor of energy sources with a low, predicable cost.
Creditors with secured debt, which is backed by collateral, are paid back first after the company files Chapter 11, with those holding unsecured debt paid next. Common equity stockholders are last in line. Although a company may emerge from bankruptcy as a viable entity, generally, the creditors and the bondholders become the new owners of the shares.
What you're really saying is: Command and control economies work!
The real question becomes why do we want so much of the economy at the mercy of commodities the fluctuate so wildly in price? The more sensible long-term model would seem to be reduce demand for fossil fuels in favor of energy sources with a low, predicable cost.
LAS VEGAS, Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SolarCity (Nasdaq: SCTY) today announced that as a result of the decision by the Nevada Public Utilities Commission to severely undermine Nevadans' ability to go solar, the company is ceasing solar sales and installation in the state effective immediately."This is a very difficult decision but Governor Sandoval and his PUC leave us no choice. The people of Nevada have consistently chosen solar, but yesterday their state government decided to end customer choice, damage the state's economy, and jeopardize thousands of jobs," said SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive. "The PUC has protected NV Energy's monopoly, and everyone else will lose. We have no alternative but to cease Nevada sales and installations, but we will fight this flawed decision on behalf of our Nevada customers and employees."Governor Sandoval's Office of Economic Development helped bring SolarCity to Nevada in 2013, and encouraged the company to create local jobs. Accepting the Governor's invitation, the company expanded to Nevada and has hired more than 2,000 local workers in just over two years. The state also created a rebate program to entice Nevadans to go solar, and many chose to do so. The rooftop solar industry helped Nevada become number one in the nation in solar jobs per capita in 2014. With abundant sunshine and a populace eager to adopt solar energy and save on electricity bills, the industry was poised to become a cornerstone of the state's innovation economy. Now, in what amounts to a massive bait and switch for the local solar industry and its customers right before the holidays, the Governor's PUC has effectively shut down the rooftop solar industry and taken the extraordinary step to punish over 12,000 existing solar customers, including schools, with exorbitant fees in what appears to be an attempt to protect the profits of the state's largest utility. All three members of the PUC, who voted unanimously to change the rules, were appointed by Governor Sandoval."Most disturbing is the PUC's decision to retroactively sabotage existing solar customers' investments by changing the rules on them," continued Rive. "The Nevada government encouraged these people to go solar with financial incentives and pro-solar policies, and now the same government is punishing them for their decision with new costs they couldn't have foreseen. These actions are certainly unethical, unprecedented, and possibly unlawful. While the rest of the country embraces a clean energy future, Nevada is moving backwards."About SolarCitySolarCity® (NASDAQ: SCTY) provides clean energy.

checking actual past temperature readings to adjust climatic models accordingly...the scoundrels!
What this amounts to is the state saying no to the subsidization of those who have gone solar at the detriment of everybody who hasn't.
this deluge is lot worse than traditionally
Mann et al.?
I still like that song, Krake! And I still dislike how Michael Mann (and many of his co-authors) abuse statistics...
You entered this thread by being fundamentally wrong about the nature of statistics.
I'll leave that to Oakdale to figure out on his own
