Anthropogenic global warming?

... is a loop, thusly cyclic. It is clear that man has affected this naturally running loop. I would consider mans affect as a variable in the damping factor of the loop equation. Even a over or under damped loop will eventually reach equilibrium, but the oscillation within the loop is what ...

The Fiber Disease

... they are of equal energy to the electron wave. But when launched into the same vacuum, the two equal-energy wave disturbances experience equal damping because they are in the same medium. Hence the wave and antiwave are locked together in the vacuum, andof equal energy, and of equal amplitude ...
