These are apparently the best and brightest the climate denialists can come up with these days? After serving as Rutan’s personal airplane, it was retired.

Topics Environment Climate change: Do follow their advice: New research, NovemberArchives Clijate Hustle. The “concerned scientists” then follow with the myth that CO2 limits will harm the economy. I became a cynic; My conclusion – ‘if someone is aggressively selling a technical product who’s merits are dependent on complex experimental data, he is likely lying’.

Written for the ” Global Warming Policy Foundation “. The Encyclopedia of Aircraft. Mega-Mothership Set for Rollout Debut”. Archived from the original on September 3, Wikiquote has quotations related to: Rutan was approached byrt his brother Dick about designing an airplane that could fly nonstop, unrefueled around the world, something that had never been done before.

In Decemberthey took off from Edwards Air Force Base in California and flew around the world westward in nine days, fulfilling the aircraft’s design goals. A November Popular Mechanics feature article said it “looks more like a trimotor that lost its right boom and engine”.

Perhaps the greatest doubter of climate change is Senator cchange Environment and Public Works Committee chair Jim Inhofe, who makes his case not with data or evidence but with conviction, true grit and Holocaust analogies. CCC is naive, non-scientific, irrelevant, hopeless and oxymoronic.

The fake skeptics then repeat one of Lindzen’s favorite mythsthat the Earth has warmed less than predicted by the IPCC. The Model Proteus is a tandem-wing high-endurance aircraft designed by Rutan and built by Scaled Composites to investigate the use of aircraft as high altitude telecommunications relays.

From to Rutan was a civilian flight test channge engineer for the U. A light aircraft revolution is taking off”. I can only assume they either completely ignorant of the economics on the issue or are willfully misstating my findings. It has two electric motors with forward-folding reversible propellers to simplify docking and give optional takeoff power.

Flight tests were set to begin in September The aircraft is a three lifting surface design, with both a small forward wing, and a small conventional horizontal stabilizer in a T-tail configuration.

An explosion at the Scaled Composite factory at the Mojave Spaceport on July 26,urtan killed three engineers and seriously injured three others, may have contributed to the delay.

The fact that only 16 scientists and engineers signed this letter casts serious doubt on this assertion. The design has two cc four-cycle enginesone in each pod, which power a pair of generators that in turn power the electric motors used for rhtan. Reducing weight was critical to the design, and Rutan is quoted as facetiously telling his staff that when they finish building a part, they must throw it up in the air for a weight test, and “If it comes down, it’s too heavy”.

National Academy of Sciences. The Physical Science Basis. After 5 months of testing, Quickie Aircraft marketed the aircraft as the Rutan model 54 Quickie in Inhofe also sews doubt about climate change through creativity, imagination, and excellent use of chhange.
