It’s Going to be a Long Night

Keeping an Eye on Florida


I was surprised to see the Fivethirtyeightblog predicting a slight edge for Obama. That was the first time in a long time I’ve seen Obama up in my state. It’s heartening as the ground game for Florida Democrats has been, from my perspective, pretty good. But all of the polls showed an Obama win without Florida. If Obama takes Florida it’s game over.

  2. physicist – you can pretty much figure that graph would look rather flat – there's about 800GT of C in the atmosphere and annual emissions are running 9GT (and less in the past) so of order 1% – then the sink is smaller than that. So in any one year it's a small fraction, but over the decades it accumulates to become a very material change.
