question

What modulates our Sun? The majority of science work on the principle that the Sun is self modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. There are others that suspect the Sun is modulated by the planets with a special emphasis on Uranus & Neptune. Thanks to Carl Smith who has recently left us we have new knowledge that significantly adds to Jose, Landscheidt & Charvàtovà's work.

Freaking dishonest and insane – Clear-cutting trees to produce “climate-friendly” renewable” energy – Paul Driessen
___________________________________________

Far too many of our existing energy policies were devised by special interests seeking money and power, often using exaggerated or even fabricated climate change, sustainability and precautionary problems to justify their quest. Like Diogenes, many of us have joined the Trump Administration and members of Congress in search for more honest policies.

Rescinding and replacing today’s policies and regulations will be a critical factor in determining whether America rejuvenates its job and wealth building machine.

Diogenes searching for honest policies

Renewable energy is defective solution in search of a problem, money and power

By Paul Driessen

The Greek philosopher Diogenes reportedly carried an oil lamp during the daytime, the better to help him find an honest man. People everywhere should join Congress and the Trump Administration in search of honest energy and climate policies – as too many existing policies were devised by special interests seeking money and power, and often using imaginary problems to justify their quest.

The health and environmental impacts from fossil fuels are well documented, though often exaggerated or even fabricated by activists, politicians, bureaucrats and companies with lofty agendas: securing climate research grants, and mandates and subsidies for renewable energy projects to replace fossil fuels; reducing economic growth and living standards in industrialized nations; and redistributing the world’s wealth, fundamentally transforming the global economy, and telling impoverished countries what kinds of energy and what level of economic development they will be permitted to have.

Agenda-driving mantras

More often than not, proponents justify these agendas by insisting we must prevent dangerous manmade global warming and climate chaos, prevent unsustainable resource consumption, and safeguard people against purported technological risks. My multiple articles on the catechism of climate cataclysmsustainability realities, absurdities and duplicities … and selective application of precautionary pabulum address the conceptual fallacies of these interchangeable, agenda-driving mantras.

All three are routinely defined, twisted, used and abused to block technologies that activists despise, and promote technologies and policies that advance their agendas and fill their coffers.

But beyond their glaring, often insurmountable conceptual problems are the practical issues. With what, exactly, will these agitators replace fossil fuels? Applying the same health and environmental standards they use against oil, natural gas and coal – just how clean, green, Earth-friendly, sustainable, climate-stabilizing, healthy, and human rights/social justice-oriented are their renewable energy alternatives?

If alternative fuels are so wondrous, then why …. ?

If their alternatives are so wondrous, why do they still need permanent mandates, renewable portfolio standards, investment tax credits, production tax credits, feed-in tariffs, myriad other subsidies, exemptions from endangered species and other regulations, and laws requiring that utility companies buy their electricity whenever it is produced (even if it is not needed)? Why must they build and run fossil fuel “backup” power plants for the 50-85% of the time that wind and solar are not producing?

The following brief examination will hopefully guide more rigorous analyses of the impacts of these “technologies of the future” – aka wind, solar and biomass technologies that served mankind rather poorly for countless generations, until the fossil/nuclear era began, and now are supposed to serve us once again.

Wasting entire chunks of land the size of Iowa

Probably the biggest single problem with any supposedly renewable, sustainable alternative is its horrendously low energy density: the amount of energy produced per acre. We can get far more electricity or fuel from a few dozen, hundred or thousand acres of oil, gas or coal production operations than we can from millions or tens of millions of acres of renewable energy projects.

Moreover, fossil fuel operations can often be conducted in the middle of farm fields or wildlife habitats – or the land can be reclaimed and returned to those uses once the energy has been extracted. Offshore oil and gas platforms actually create thriving habitats for marine life. Most renewable energy operations displace food crops or destroy wildlife habitats – and must do so in perpetuity.

And so we have corn as high as an elephant’s eye, across an area the size of Iowa (36 million acres) to produce ethanol that replaces 10% of US gasoline but also requires vast quantities of water, fertilizer, fuel and pesticides to grow the corn and turn it into fuel – instead of feeding hungry people.

Oil and natural gas – Nature’s own biofuels

We find bright yellow canola fields across more millions of acres in Montana, Saskatchewan, Germany and elsewhere, to produce biodiesel – and still more acreage devoted to switchgrass for ethanol and algae ponds for “advanced biofuels.” In Brazil, it’s millions of acres of sugarcane for ethanol, and millions more for other biofuels from palm oil, from areas that once were rainforests, “the Earth’s lungs,” as environmentalist groups like to say. Once teeming with wildlife, they are now monoculture energy plantations – so that we don’t have to desecrate Mother Earth by drilling holes in the ground to produce oil and natural gas: nature’s own biofuels, created over millions of years and stored for mankind’s benefit.

Of course, when these expensive, environment-intensive alternatives are burned, they send more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the same as fossil fuels do – on top of the CO2 that was burned by fuels and released from soils and clear-cut trees to produce the “climate-friendly renewable” energy.

Meanwhile, American and Canadian companies are cutting down millions of acres of forest habitats, and turning millions of trees into wood pellets that they truck to coastal ports and transport on oil-fueled cargo ships to England – to be hauled by truck and burned in place of coal to generate electricity. The pellets cost more than coal (which Britain still has in abundance), so utility companies receive huge taxpayer subsidies to make up the difference. One power plant received £450 million ($553 million) in 2015.

The financially and environmentally unsustainable scheme is justified on the ground that trees are renewable; so the scam helps Britain meet its climate change and renewable fuel obligations under various laws and treaties. Even though the trees-to-pellets-to-power process emits more carbon dioxide and pollution than coal-based power generation, the “wood fool” arrangement is considered to be “carbon neutral,” because growing replacement trees over the next century or two will absorb CO2.

Freaking dishonest and insane

If this sounds freaking dishonest and insane, it’s because it is freaking dishonest and insane. Diogenes must be turning summersaults in his grave. But there’s more.

On top of all this biofuel lunacy, we also have tens of thousands of wind turbines towering above fields, lakes, oceans and homes – butchering millions of birds and bats, and impairing the health of thousands of humans whose wellbeing is sacrificed to Big Wind profits. We’ve also got millions of solar panels sprawling across countless acres of desert and grassland habitats, to produce well under 1% of the world’s electricity. Their expensive, intermittent power reaches distant urban areas via thousands of miles of high-voltage transmission lines. They all require greenhouse gas-emitting backup power plants.

Those turbines, panels, transmission lines and backups require millions of tons of steel, copper, concrete, rare earth and other exotic metals, fiberglass and other materials – much of it produced under nonexistent health and environmental laws in faraway countries, where injury, illness, child labor and death run rampant … and are ignored by local, national and United Nations authorities and human rights activists.

Removing all these worn-out turbines and solar panels will cost billions of dollars that state and federal governments don’t have, and developers have rarely had to cover with bonds.

Poor families are hit hardest

Finally, the energy produced from all these “planet-saving” enterprises is far more costly than what could be produced using fossil fuels. Poor families are hit hardest, as they must spend a much larger portion of their incomes on energy than middle class and wealthy families. Businesses, factories, hospitals and schools also face rising energy costs, and must lay off workers, reduce services or close their doors.

The impacts ricochet throughout communities and nations, adversely affecting living standards, nutrition, health and life spans. We are reminded once again: Corporate fraud affects a limited number of customers; government and activist fraud affects every taxpayer, citizen and consumer.

The essence of all these renewable fuel programs is embodied in the notion that we must capture methane from cow dung, to safeguard Earth’s climate from this “potent greenhouse gas.” The operable term is BS.

The US Congress and Trump Administration could become world leaders in returning honesty and sanity to energy, climate, economic and environmental discussions and policies. Let’s hope they do.

Reader writes to Senator warning of imminent ice age

IceAgeNow - Sat, 03/04/2017 - 16:07

Little Ice Age in 13 years! Big ice age coming soon, in geological time.

Reader Jimmy Walter sent this letter to U.S. Senator Rand Paul:

This scientific paper describes a model that is 97% accurate going back thousands and thousands of year. It predicts the beginning of a little ice age (Marauder Minimum) in 13 years! The attachment is the full scientific paper.

The alarmists are lying and trying to make changes for what will not happen, and those changes will kill people in the little ice age, not to mention a million times worse during the coming full ice age.

We need to plan for crops that will survive the coming cold. We need much more energy which solar panels will probably not supply due to increased clouding.

Robert Felix’s book, “Not by Fire, but by ICE” gives some details on what crops will survive and a good, full ice age history. His current blog is www.iceagenow.info

The attached paper by Joshua Pearce at MTU in Minnesota has more detailed what to do.

Please let me know it the honorable Senator actually reads this. I know you have thousands, if not millions of emails. This one can turn the tide on the alarmists.

With respect,
Jimmy Walter

Science deniers in the wind industry

IceAgeNow - Thu, 03/02/2017 - 18:13

“The Big Wind industry has done everything in its power to keep this story buried, and to ridicule and vilify the victims who suffer in so many ways.” – Paul Driessen

“By now most Americans have heard about wind energy’s costly, subsidized, unreliable electricity,” says Paul Driessen. “The need to back up every megawatt with redundant fossil-fuel power and build ultra-long transmission lines from distant wind farms to urban centers; and the impacts that towering lines and turbines have on wildlife and habitats. What they haven’t heard much about is the damage that turbines can inflict on human health and well-being.

“Not everyone is affected the same way or to the same degree. But for susceptible people living near gigantic turbines – even a mile or more away – the constant inaudible “infrasound” bombardment and “flicker” effects early and late in the day can be horribly debilitating.

“Sensory perception expert Helen Parker has done something I don’t believe anyone else has done,” says Driessen. “Pulled together the science and personal interest stories associated with this growing problem.”

Science deniers in the wind industry  

The human health consequences of manipulated measurements

By Helen Schwiesow Parker, PhD, LCP          

Like the tobacco industry before it, the wind industry has spent decades vehemently denying known harmful consequences associated with its product, while promoting its fraudulent feel-good image. Dismissing or denying the serious health impacts of industrial-scale wind turbines is wishful thinking, akin to insisting that tobacco is harmless because we enjoy it.

The problem with wind energy is not just its costly, subsidized, unreliable electricity; the need to back up every megawatt with redundant fossil-fuel power; or its impacts on wildlife and their habitats.

Infrasound (inaudible) and low-frequency (audible) noise (slowly vibrating sound waves collectively referred to as ILFN) produced by Industrial-scale Wind Turbines (IWTs) directly and predictably cause adverse human health effects.  The sonic radiation tends to be amplified within structures, and sensitivity to the impact of the resonance increases with continuing exposure.

These facts have been known to the wind industry and the US government since the 1980s when it became a ‘hot topic,’ with numerous studies presented and published by accousticians working under grants from the Departments of Energy, Defense and NASA.

The wind industry response? 

Deny the science.  Insist that “what you can’t hear can’t hurt you.” Claim that “neighbors will get used to it.” Measure only outside dwellings, and allow only noise measurements in the field that reflect the relative loudness perceived by the human ear, while drastically reducing sound-level readings in the lower frequencies that are known to cause problems.

From a distance, many view the massive turbines as majestic – as a clean, seemingly quiet and free source of endless energy. To untold thousands of families clustered within 2 kilometers (1.25 miles) or more of the pulsing machines, however, the IWTs bring strangely debilitating illness – increasingly incapacitating for some, yet scoffed at by wind proponents.

Common sense tells us that fifty-story-tall metal structures with blades as long as football fields moving at 180 mph at their tips would negatively impact quiet neighborhoods. But the extent and severity of the IWT’s effect on body, mind and spirit comes as a surprise to most people.

Land of the FREE Home of the BULLSHIT!

When I’m at home I’m usually sick with headaches, nausea, vertigo, tinnitus, anxiety, hopelessness, depression. My ears pop a lot and I hardly ever sleep…. Suicide looks to be my only relief.  Land of the FREE Home of the BULLSHIT! … Million to one odds anybody contacts me back.” 

The primary pathway of turbine assault on human health is no mystery. The Israeli army has used low-frequency sound pulses as high-tech crowd control for years. People are made nauseous and confused, with blurred vision, vertigo, headaches, tachycardia, heightened blood pressure, pain and ringing in the ears, difficulties with memory and concentration, anxiety, depression, irritability, and panic attacks.

This also describes the Wind Turbine Syndrome (WTS), a constellation of symptoms first given a name by the brilliant young MD/PhD, Nina Pierpont. She followed her astute and compassionate observations of turbine neighbors around the world with epidemiological research, using a robust case-crossover statistical design: subjects experienced symptoms that varied with proximity to the turbines. When the same subjects were placed at a greater distance from the turbines, their symptoms abated; returning them to the scene brought the symptoms back.

Michigan State University noise engineers explain that “Inaudible components [ILFN] can induce resonant vibration in liquids, gases and solids … bodily tissues and cavities – potentially harmful to humans.” A subject in the groundbreaking Cooper study describes how the resonance shows up in a glass of water on her kitchen table, and in the toilet bowl, and how she feels it in her body.

Pierpont hypothesized that a significant pathway from ILFN to symptoms might include disruption to balance mechanisms located in the inner ear.

Dr. Alec Salt and colleagues, otolaryngologists at Washington University, later found that inaudible ILFN reaches the brain via inner ear Outer Hair Cell (OHC) displacement, leading indeed to unfamiliar and disturbing sensations paralleling WTS.

A lot of money riding on this

As turbine size trends upward, the sickening ILFN emissions worsen. There’s a lot of money riding on keeping the science under the radar of public awareness, and regulations to a minimum.

When Denmark’s EPA proposed tightening turbine noise regulations to protect turbine neighbors from increasing ILFN (May 2011), the Vestas CEO wrote the DEPA Minister, asserting: “It simply isn’t technically possible to curtail the ILFN output,” and “Increased distance requirements [setbacks from residences] cannot be met whilst maintaining a satisfactory business outcome for the investor.”’ DEPA folded, turning instead to looser standards that were “likely to be copied by other countries.”

Although alerted to the increased endangerment of turbine neighbors around the world, the press remained silent, and Big Wind’s central players ramped up their game plan undeterred.

In addition to the impact of ILFN radiation, turbine neighbors suffer from Turbine “Flicker” – a strobe-like effect caused by turbine blades alternately blocking and allowing sunlight to skim rhythmically and repeatedly across the land, or ricochet in bursts across interior walls and stairwells.

Nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness, irritability, even panic

The direct impact extends to nearly a mile from the turbine – long after sunrise, and again long before sunset. It is mesmerizing, disorienting, and often brings on nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness, irritability, even panic, indoors or outside.

Repetitive sleep disturbance and stress-related symptoms are the most common health complaints of IWT neighbors.  The audible sound constantly fluctuates, described as akin to low-flying jets or the rumble of helicopters, “freakish, screeching sound sludge.”  It is unnatural.  People say the noise gets into your head, and you can’t get it out.

Advising the Falmouth, MA Board of Health, Dr. William Hallstein wrote: “All varieties of illnesses are destabilized, secondary to inadequate sleep: diabetic blood sugars, cardiac rhythms, migraines, tissue healing. Psychiatric problems intensify … all in the ‘normal’ brain. Errors in judgment and accident rates increase.”

As with seasickness, not everyone is similarly affected. But for many, the experience becomes literally intolerable. Devastated families and individuals around the world, having lost their health, jobs or farms, return their keys to the bank, sell their homes at fire-sale prices, or simply pack up and flee. Some never recover their health.

(For more details on this human health travesty, see my three-part series on MasterResource.org)

A tale of money and power

The continuing expansion of Big Wind is a tale of money and power shunting aside integrity and compassion, abetted by a disinterested news media, leading to an un-informed public, further betrayed by “human rights advocates” loathe to break ranks from popular positions.

The myth that “saving the world” requires tolerating the costs of Big Wind could not be further from the truth.  Responsible stewardship demands critical thinking, common sense and grade school science, not just following Big Wind’s Pied Piper and supposedly good intentions.

In fact, allowing wind into the energy mix squanders our non-renewable environment and taxpayer billions that are greatly needed elsewhere, wasting them on the most idiotic of engineering conceits.

Wind actually increases emissions and fossil fuel use

Reliance on wind actually increases emissions and fossil fuel use overall, due to inefficiencies introduced into the system. Big Wind eliminates none of the need for conventional capacity, but rather consumes vast quantities of additional fuel and raw materials, while spewing emissions during the manufacture, transportation, construction and maintenance of the enormous redundant turbines and their uniquely demanding infrastructure.

The Wind Game is nothing but an obscenely costly, mostly useless energy redundancy scheme. It funnels unimaginable profits from our taxpayer and rate-payer pockets to its inner circle, while knowingly ignoring its victims’ desperate pleas for relief – and indeed ridiculing them and trying to bury all the growing evidence of harm to their health and wellbeing.

We’ve witnessed three decades of this callous, mercenary assault, this arrogant denial of what is known to be true, this untold suffering of thousands of innocent victims around the world. It’s time to bring in the human rights and social justice referees – and call “game over.”

Record-busting western snowpack too deep to measure

IceAgeNow - Thu, 03/02/2017 - 13:53

Yesterday, when researchers sought to measure snow depth on Slide Mountain at Mount Rose Ski Tahoe near Reno, their tools couldn’t reach bottom.

“We’re not even close,” hydrologist Jeff Anderson said after jamming an aluminum tube more than 16 feet into the snowpack hoping to reach the ground below.

An historic winter for the Sierra Nevada

The snowpack is 212 inches (538 cm) deep at the Slide Mountain SNOTEL site.  It’s a record for March 1 at the site, beating the previous record set in 1997 by about 20 percent.

Mount Rose Ski Tahoe has measured a total of about 54 feet of snow since the beginning of ski season. That’s about the height of a 5-story building.

 

The overall snowpack in the Truckee River Basin, the Lake Tahoe Basin and the Carson River Basin are all running more than 207 percent of normal.

Statewide, the California snowpack is at an estimated 185 percent of normal for the date.

Catholic Newsletter Uses Title of My Book Without Permission

IceAgeNow - Thu, 03/02/2017 - 02:40

To add insult to injury, they not only use my title (Not by Fire but by Ice), they use it to preach that global warming could cause an ice age.
Here’s their headline:
“Not by fire but by ice? The frigid scenario where global warming triggers an ice age gets a second look”

“The idea sounds counter-intuitive, and it could be wrong,” the article begins. “But there is one hypothesis that a warming planet could cause an ice age.

The hypothesis has to do with the Atlantic Meridonial Overturning Circulation (AMOC),” the article continues . The AMOC sends warm ocean currents rich in salt water north from the tropics to warm the Northern Hemisphere. Then the water cools, sinks, and flows back south.

The salt water is essential to this transfer of heat, the article asserts. A massive melt of freshwater ice could potentially overwhelm the salt-water flow thus halting the heat transfer, leading to disastrous consequences for Europe.

What would trigger such a disaster?

Research at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, estimates that “the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere needed to trigger this disaster is about 700 ppm, and we are at 400 ppm now. At current rates, we will reach 700 ppm around 2100.”

Blaming humans for the AMOK run amuk

I guess we’re supposed to blame humans for the AMOK run amuk.

But all you need to do is look at the graph (below) to see that CO2 levels have been far, far higher in the past with absolutely no help from humans.

How long will it take us to understand that humans do not, and cannot, control the weather to any meaningful degree?

This smacks of those ancient human Aztec sacrifices meant to placate their gods and influence the weather.

Tucker Carlson Demolishes Bill Nye’s Delusions About AGW – Video

IceAgeNow - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 22:22

You gotta watch this video!

Bill Nye says global warming skeptics suffer from the psychological delusion of cognitive dissonance. He also says “another ice age ain’t gonna happen cuz of you n me.” Great news, aye?

Here’s another nugget: Humans are “100-percent” responsible for the speed-up in climate change, says Nye. (About 3:34 into the video)

And watch this disconnect: Nye admits that carbon dioxide levels were higher during dinosaur days, and the earth was warmer than it is today. (About 3:59 in)

Talk about cognitive dissonance! Hey, Bill, did humans cause that ancient warming? No? Then what caused it? Natural forces, maybe?

If it weren’t for humans, says Nye, our climate, right now, would look like it did in the year 1750. (About 7:05 in)
__________________________________

“Here is the best (and weirdest) example of cognitive dissonance you will ever see,” says Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip. “The set-up is that Bill Nye, an engineer by training, and a proponent of science, is defending climate science on Tucker’s show,”

“Look for Nye to go totally mental in the last minute of the clip, changing the topic to political leaks for no apparent reason,” says Scott. “That’s your tell. His brain just sort of broke right in front of you.”

One of the worst New Zealand summers on record

IceAgeNow - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 13:11

“Summer never arrived” says The Guardian. “Weather patterns are to blame. Climate change is to blame. It doesn’t matter – she didn’t show.” 

“Summer, in the south especially, never showed,” says The Guardian. “The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research has called it one of the worst New Zealand summers on record. Cloudy and windy in the capital Wellington, and unusually cold in the south island, with 50cm of snow falling in January.”

One of the worst New Zealand summers on record, with unusual cold and 50 cm of snow, and they blame “climate change.”

You don’t suppose they would also have blamed “climate change” if it had been warmer than usual, do you?

Nahhh. They wouldn’t do that, would they?

Is it any wonder we don’t trust the mainstream media?

Record snowfall closes ALL roads in Iceland

IceAgeNow - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 12:50

Take a look at this photo:

This past weekend, Reykjavik was buried in the deepest February snowfall on record.

The 51 cm (20 inches) of snow beat the previous February record of 48cm set in 1952.

This beat the previous record not just for the date, mind you, but for the entire month of February. In fact, it was only 3cm (1.2 inches) short of the all-time record of 55cm, set in January of 1937.

Perhaps not surprisingly, all roads in Iceland were closed.

Bangladesh – Betel leaf falling off trees due to extreme cold

IceAgeNow - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 13:40

Betel leaf growers are facing losses as the leaves dropped from the trees due to intense cold and heavy fog this season.

“I have to face huge losses due to dropping of the betel leaves,” said Donbosco Khonglah, a betel leaf farmer of Meghatila punjee under Kulaura upazila of the district.

28 Feb 2017 — Not only Donbosco, but most of the Khasi growers are worried because they’re in the same situation.

Farmers say about 10,000 betel cultivators in Kamalganj, Kulaura, Sreemangal, Rajnagor, Juri and Barlekha upazilas left cultivation in recent years due to uncertainty caused by the cold.

According to Wikipedia, The betel is the leaf of a vine belonging to the Piperaceae family, which includes pepper and kava.

Pakistan – 12,000 people stranded by avalanches

IceAgeNow - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 13:28

46 huge avalanches have blocked the only road to Arkari Valley since Feb 5, isolating over 12,000 people.

27 Feb 2017 – The people of the isolated area complained against the provincial government for not clearing the sole road to of snow and boulders.

Village Council Chairman Sher Muhammad said, “Around 12,000 people in the valley are facing acute shortage of food, medicines and other essential commodities as there is no hospital.”

Vice Chairman Razi Man Shah said that the people stranded in the valley had no basic facilities including schools, hospitals, electricity or even a basic health unit. The area was also facing a severe shortage of food items, he said.

Women and children were carrying placards and banners while many were holding lanterns and candles to show the lack of facilities such as electricity. They were living in darkness because it was not possible to carry kerosene from Chitral due to the blocked road.

The situation had gotten to the point that people were carrying food on their backs while travelling by feet.

Pastor warned 5 months ago of satanic attack on Trump – Video

IceAgeNow - Mon, 02/27/2017 - 17:47

Back on Sep 22, Rev. Darrell Scott warned of a “concentrated satanic attack” against then presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“There’s going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before and I’m watching it every day,” Scott said.

Now that President Trump has taken office, is it just a coincidence  that witches have joined forces to work their black magic on him? (I posted about the witches yesterday.)

Twelve inches of snow fell on Yankton on Feb 24, a new record for the date.

Meanwhile, in Nebraska, all lanes of I-80 were closed earlier Friday because of” blizzard-like” conditions. (Do you suppose “blizzard-like” means there was a blizzard?)

The storm dropped more than 2 feet (60 cm) of snow in parts of western Nebraska as it moved east through Iowa.

Other snowfall reports included: Bloomfield, Nebraska, 12 inches; Butte, Nebraska, 10.4; O’Neill, Nebraska, 10; Gayville, 9; Pickstown, 9; Tyndall, 8.4; Freeman, 8; Vermillion 8-10.
