217. well, you stuck around and offered better arguments
However, your assertion that Bazant's gross simplification "starts at zero credibility and then stays at zero credibility" is either false or equivocal. Many people have found it suitable for first-order analysis.

Yes, climate models are tested against reality over time. In this case, Bazant "predicts" that the towers should have collapsed, as indeed they did. Of course that isn't much of a feat, since the outcome was known in advance. But I don't see much analogy to supply side economics.
