Eric’s Enlightenment for Wednesday, April 22, 2015

  1. Frances Woolley’s useful reading list on tax policy for Canadians with disabilities
  2. Jeff Rosenthal asked a seemingly simple yet subtle question about uncorrelated normal random variables.
  3. A great catalogue of colours with their names in R – very useful for data visualization!
  4. Paul Crutzen’s proposed scheme to inject sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere – this would create sulfate aerosols for deflecting sunlight to counteract global warming, but he carefully weighed the serious pros and cons of this risky scheme.
