  • Just another reason to drink the bare minimum of fluids, hold in your pi55, and keep wearing your seatbelt. As if the tiny lavs weren't enough reason already - I'd swear an aircraft carrier shower stall has more room than the economy and even biz lavs on most modern passenger a/c.

      clear air turbulence is on the rise. From nbc:


      “Nelson and a group of researchers say such incidents of clear-air turbulence — which is difficult to forecast and avoid because it is not associated with storms — are on the rise due to climate change.


      A 2023 study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters found that severe clear-air turbulence increased by more than 50% over the North Atlantic Ocean from 1979 to 2020.

      The uptick in turbulence likely owes to the effect of climate change on wind speeds in the upper levels of the atmosphere, the researchers found. Some of the most pronounced increases in clear-air turbulence in recent decades were over mid-latitude regions, including over the North Atlantic and flight routes over the United States, according to the study.”

      I am not going to disagree with this, but air travel has absolutely exploded since 1979. Are they comparing raw reports of this turbulence or trying to determine rates of it? Was there ever a time when even severe clear-air turbulence wouldn't have been reported, if nothing really happened (i.e. no injuries or damage)?

        All good questions. I need to read that report more closely as I had the same thought re volume

          I usually agree, but sometimes it can be difficult. Yeah those bathrooms suck though even in First Class.

            Right. No shade cast or anything, and I know they try to be pithy in "reporting" on studies, but when someone who's not opposed to the overall message can kinda pick apart the argument as constructed........

              That's a fair point considering dereg (and the rise of "commuter/regional" airlines) happened in '79. See, this is why critical thinking is important, even for bass players. ;-)

                        • Is this a compartmentalization thing? Like Division A could possible get sued into oblivion, so you separate Division B and Division C so their assets are off limits.

                            It's a more obfuscated way of spinning off liabilities, IMHO

                            So to answer your question, yes.

                              So let me get this straight. They bought and merged with Dow (2015-2017), spun off the plastics/materials science division into a new entity that retained the Dow Chemical name and the agribusiness division into a new entity called Corteva (both in 2019), reverted the specialty products division to the DuPont name, and now they're going to split that into 3 additional new, public entities.

                              So who's getting really, really rich after all this presumed finagling of business & tax law?
