  • I made no inferences. The following if/then statement is undeniable: If Abbas demands borders at the '49 lines, then Bush will support those borders (if he follows his current policy statements). I did not assume that Abbas would make that demand (though I think it is quite likely, based on precedent, that he will. However, that is irrelevant).
  • We seem to be in agreement that Bush wants more, so I'll assume that we're in agreement that the article should indicate as much.
  • I never said that millions are satisfied with the disengagement alone. However, if you consider any such people extremists, a fortiori that you consider those who don't support any land concessions extremists. There are many millions of the latter (I dare say hundreds of millions). HKT talk 18:32, 25 August 2005 (UTC)

Palestine map[edit]

I am not author of that Palestine election map. Map is taken from Wikimedia Commons and I just started its page on English Wikipedia. You can check map page on Wikimedia Commons to see who is the author of the map, and ask him to change it:

Chernobyl disaster[edit]

The points by Prof Allison that you added seem very valid and I've elaborated on them slightly - I hope that's ok. I'd be grateful if you could look it over and check that I've grasped the point, particularly the long-term/short term deaths. Best. --Moonraker88 09:56, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for looking it over; I appreciate it. --Moonraker88 08:17, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Jan Willem Storm van Leeuwen[edit]

Please provide a reference for your statement that Zero CO2 emissions is a straw man argument. May I remind you that Jan Willem Storm van Leeuwen is a live person. If you can't provide it in 72 hours, I will have to remove your statement.Kgrr (talk) 16:46, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

(response to Kgrr also posted here)
Hi Kgrr, I updated the SvL article to describe his contribution to the ORG paper better - actually the description in the article as I found it was wrong anyway so my earlier update (the straw man) was misguided. No-one seriously interested in the subject claims that there are no other energy inputs to nuclear power, which in todays society means that it carries a greenhouse gas emission on its lifecycle; the discussion is about how much that is (which is why attacking "zero emissions" would be a straw man argument). The SvL/S analysis is an extreme (high) outlier in that estimation. In the ORG paper itself, SvL's claim that in thirty or fifty years the greenhouse burden for nuclear will suddenly sky-rocket assumes no new uranium discoveries and ignores ISL methods, both of which are too important to overlook.
I should add that I don't care whether Storm van Leeuwen is alive or not (yes I know he is); I am addressing the arguments, not the man.

Proposed deletion of The Climb (book)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article The Climb (book) has been proposed for deletion. The proposed-deletion notice added to the article should explain why.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Citation format for "Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant"[edit]

In 2007 you created the first decent citation footnotes for "Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant". I am thinking of cleaning up the current mix of citation styles, but WP:CITEVAR indicates "it is normal practice to defer to the style used by the first major contributor or adopted by the consensus of editors already working on the page". Since there is presently no discernible consensus, I would like to know if your edit was based on any recognized citation style? Jc3s5h (talk) 20:15, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

2007... haha, no, I don't remember what it was based on - possibly on another Wikipedia page I liked the look of. Almost certainly not the result of detailed research though. I appreciate your asking. If you have a better style to use - that maintains readability and tracking - then I gladly defer to that. :-) Joffan (talk) 23:20, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
