    The paper could be fixed (tossed?) based on a simple examination of its (ridiculous?) premise. Was a 5 mph parking lot accident (errant parking) more severe if the veihicle sideswiped was a 2018 Cadillac instead of a 1998 Chevy? Better yet, if the errant parking was veering into an unoccupied parking space did it not happen at all?

    Generally not, but I look forward to reading your peer reviewed rebuttal.

    So now theyre gauging severity by monetary damage rather than meteorological measurements? Wow, this is pseudo-science at its finest, and the climate nuts will believe it, as usual.

    Here we have the classic appeal to authority or one must yield to authority argument. Much like "the trained police officer said that he/she observed you speeding, therfore you are guilty of speeding since you lack any expert witness testimony to the contrary - pay the fine plus court costs".

    Nah. It's more like a small public bridge vs. a yuge highway bridge. Which cost more if they're damaged? In other words, it costs everyone more.

    Why are you still pissing around on the net instead of working on your paper?
