    jimeichstedt Can you reconcile the $16 Trillion total personal income with the IRS total Adjusted Gross Income of $10.2 Trillion. I’d like to crosswalk it to see what is available for actually spending. That is a huge difference and puts JimD even further into lala land using Utopian amounts not really available for spending.

    For people whose motivated insults keep disappearing - seriousness is moot.

    "The heat content of surface air (i.e.,z right above ground level, so that z = 0 can be assumed) can be expressed as: H = CpT + L q where Cp is the specific heat of air at constant pressure,T is the air temperature, L is the latent heat of vaporization, and q is the specific humidity [Haltiner and Williams, 1980]. The quantity, H, is called moist static energy and can be expressed in units of Joules kg'. The surface dry static energy can be written as: S = CpT Surface air temperature trends that have been reported monitor S.The monitoring of H, however, is the more appropriate metric to assess surface global warming." https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1029/2004EO210004 Terrestrial aridity biases the surface temperature hot. Using the Standardised Precipitation-Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) - global terrestrial aridity has increased since the 1980's - coinciding with the period of land/ocean surface temperature divergence. Something in fact consistent with the Sherwood science communication piece. And whether I am a serious hydrologist or not is not something that JCH is equipped to judge.

    It would be interesting to normalize the per capita expenditure of each country, in PPP units, to the main figure of merit for health matters... i.e. life expectancy. Most, if not all, European countries would rank better than the us, and Canada would do it as well. Living six years in the great country which is the USA has taught to me one thing, dear American citizens: you spend way too much for your health care, waaaay too much.

    Trump cannot do anything. <i>I am not sure they cared more about the problem. I think they just were looking for a winning issue. </i> LMAO.

    Atom-san Exactly which of us are you imagining was born yesterday? Has Cliff Mass been subject to nothing more than “harsh criticism”? In academia when is harsh criticism ever only harsh criticism? It’s always much more ambitious than that as you well know.

    The Democrats cannot do anything about healthcare at the Federal level beyond running on the issue (in 2021 maybe they can). This problems did not start in January of 2017. We can ask if the ACA fixed anything? We can answer that many people of lesser incomes were helped. The larger problem remains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_health_care_plan_of_1993#Controversy_in_retrospect_and_perspective The first sentence at the link is a keeper. Worth the click. Expecting Congress to solve the problem. That's a good plan.

    The ACA exists because of multidecadal Republican recalcitrance on single payor. Votes bought and paid for by the health insurance industry.

    If you understand that why are you comparing a temperature trend to an energy, not a heating rate?

    I think you now realize that accumulating energy causes warming.

    Do you still think the ocean temperature in J does not lag the forcing in W/m2?

    I have seen both numbers for total US income. E.g. here for the 16 trillion. https://www.statista.com/statistics/216756/us-personal-income/ But 10 trillion from taxfoundation.org. The 16 trillion is from all sources that may be other than salary.

    As long as we keep blaming each other. Or as long as one side blames the other, I don't see it. What has Trump got to lose? Maybe he can fix it. Best case, you'd be betting on the Democrats to control the House, Senate and Presidency. And then it would be fixed. Is my position any more irrational than the best case Democrats one? The problem has resisted fixing since the 1990s. “...insurance industry...” Do you honestly believe the health insurance industry pockets more than 15% of total revenues? That's not the problem. On target JCH. That's how to win.

    To lose, he would have to have a plan. He has none.
