  1. I’m waiting for Michael Mann to ride, in a cloud of dust, to the rescue of two fellow travelers. Their end justifies their willingness to be dishonest in front of so many people. The light, in the same manner as cast by Steve McIntyre. Let’s see if the roaches scurry for the darkness as most expect.

  2. JarBro is right….Dissolve 1 milligram of PM in a liter of water then shake hell out of it and you get PM 6X….
    Then dissolve this in 1000 liters of water and you have 10 million 1-drop doses of PM 9X at say $10 per 1 ml bottle……
    Homeopathic Utopia and the cure for all ‘air-pollution hazards’ to the elderly?
    Not quite…………… because the commonly-encountered 12 ug/cu.m. PM in the air is the same concentration as PM 8X….[10 ppb]

    Wow- lower exposure to a harmful substance is more toxic than greater exposure to the same?

    He must be a homeopath.

  4. Wow- lower exposure to a harmful substance is more toxic than greater exposure to the same? You’ve got to be kidding. But then again, this is our government that we’re talking about. When one talks about “draining the swamp”, what comes to mind with C. Arden Pope III’s “science” is akin to the filthy layer of scum floating right on the surface that so quickly dissipates when an iota of truthful disinfectant is applied.
