A brief note for the day before I get back to studying electrodynamics: Matt Simmons allegedly died of drowning due to having a heart attack while in his hot tub. Maybe another use of those neat little tools of social progress Russkies invented way back in Stalin’s time. No way to know for sure without independent and thorough autopsy of course.
In any case, I’m not sure if any of the Simmon’s more controversial claims I heard during his interview by the King World News are true except of course that BP and the US government have been lying since the day one (after the Big Spill) as that’s what the ruling psychopaths do basically all the time. They are pathological liars after all.
