Facebook, founded in 2004 has an Enterprise Value of $456B, while Tesla, founded in 2003 has an EV of $54B. Everywhere I turn electrons are making headway. Let’s compare the market value of two highly respected 21st Century founded companies, Facebook and Tesla. The ability to generate stockholder value falls clearly in the electron camp.

The Melting of Greenland is Accelerating!

The study indicates that from April 2004 to April 2006, Greenland was shedding ice at about two and one-half times the rate of the previous two-year period, according to CU-Boulder researchers Isabella Velicogna and John Wahr. The researchers used measurements taken with the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, or GRACE, to calculate that Greenland lost roughly 164 cubic miles of ice from April 2004 to April 2006 — more than the volume of water in Lake Erie.

Are Latin America’s Protected Areas Effective at Conserving Nature?

Nature Conservancy - Science

The team analyzed all the protected areas in Latin America larger than 500 hectares (1,236 acres) that have known boundaries and were established before 2004. The study shows that there was degradation in 45% of all protected areas and that the rate of degradation inside Latin America’s protected areas increased by 250% from 2004 to 2009. From 2004 to 2009, the annual loss to degradation inside each of Guatemala’s protected areas averaged 1,003 hectares (2,478 acres).

I identify the effect of weather on monthly crime by using a semi-parametric bin estimator and controlling for state-by-month and county-by-year fixed effects.

Peak Driving in Oregon

Sightline Daily

But an analysis of new traffic data by The Oregonian shows that driving in the state actually peaked in 2004, four years before the Great Recession hit. They show a nominal peak in 2004, as The Oregonian noted. So the pattern to me looks less like a 2004 peak than a flat line starting in about 1999, with maybe a bit of decline since the recession.

These turtles were placed under these lamps until their eyes opened and they began to move again.
