kurtw....who was it you were pretending you are in that last post? LOL, how many usernames do you have that you can't keep them straight? Busted!

kurtw....I provided the link above and his comment is number 69. The quote I provide was not edited it is exactly what he said. You can pretend he didn't say it or try and spin it all you want but it's right there. It's what your hero and mentor said. It actually gets funnier every time I read it.

kurtw....what walt "actually" said was, "Once you capture energy from the sun plant life will die". That's your boy walt's "actual" science.
Regarding your previous lectures on San Francisco and your refusal to tell me how much time you've "actually" spent there I'll assume you've never been there at all. Just one more thing you try and pass your self off as an expert on when in reality you know nothing about.

kurtw....like I said I was paraphrasing. Look it up if you don't know what that means. I also said his science would make sense to you and obviously I was right about that too. You both think you're experts on everything until you get called on it then you slink away and pretend you never noticed being asked to back up your BS.
I'm still waiting to hear how much time you've actually spent in San Francisco, you know the place you claim to be such an expert on.

kurtw....read posts 69, 70, 71 and 72. That's your boy walter's science.

kurtw....in a previous thread walt stated that if too many solar panels were installed that they would use up all the energy from the sun. I'm paraphrasing but that's what he said and that is the science your boy walt uses. I'm not surprised he makes sense to you.

I'm for energy from solar, wind, geothermal and landfill gas because all are clean, green and renewable.

kurtw....you seem to be an expert on the San Francisco Bay Area. How much time have you spent there, exactly.

kurtw....FYI, the reason it cost so much to live in San Francisco is because it's worth it. I wouldn't think of living anywhere else.

walter....I'm going to assume your comment about "non-scientific people" was directed at me. I'll refresh your memory. I retired as a detailer for mechanical contractors that specialize in micro electronic and bio pharmaceutical fabrication factories as well as power plants, chemical plants and refineries.
Don't assume you know what I do or do not know about seismic and or earthquake construction. Every project has weekly coordination meetings with detailers from all crafts and those meetings at times included the design team (engineers) like yourself when the detailers had to prove to them the error of their ways. It's important for every detailer to have a through understanding of every craft and every crafts seismic responsibility. Inertia basses and seismic isolators in mechanical rooms along with seismic for the piping runs themselves run into hundreds of thousands of dollars for my trade alone on a four or five story hospital.
Something Ytown76 and I know about that you don't are large earthquakes. The Simi Valley quake in LA was about twenty miles from my apartment. The noise from everything shaking sounded like a train going through the room. My girlfriend and I were in bed and my eyes were fixed on the doorway which was bending and flexing like it was made of rubber. Forget about standing in it, it was impossible to get out of bed. There was two feet of water left in the complex pool, the rest was splashed out as high as the second floor. Power poles on fire from transformer explosions, power lines covering the streets, no utilities, freeways collapsed.
The freeway that collapsed near my home in the SF 89 quake had been seismic retrofitted and it still collapsed. California is more prepared for earthquakes than any place on earth yet every time we has a massive quake we have massive damage.
You're someone that has no problem with a rig on farm land producing produce or livestock for your dining room table. You wouldn't care if the entire valley shook till it all collapsed as long as you made a buck. That's who you are so you should just own it and cut the BS.
