Yeah, I suppose Prof. Francis dug her professorship out of a crackerjack box. So if the statement that air tends to want to flow downhill is "silly gumpf", perhaps you could explain why air pressure...

Beautifully crafted strawman. Who said that climate doesn't change all the time?

Great, an argument over Canadian politics.

People who talk about "tax dollars" paying for these things need to bone up on modern monetary theory. That simply isn't how it works anymore, and hasn't...

And if you look at the legendary crashes of yesteryear, quite a number were caused by flightdeck negligence. Need I recite them?
