Putting stuff into perspective
« on: March 26, 2013, 08:43:39 AM »
Consider this topic as an oposite to When there is no metric, 'magic' enters
i.e. as something like "When metric enters, 'magic' bows".

I hope you'll enjoy it, lets start:

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the cartoon you posted is worth a thousand tomes.


Do you have any idea where I might get permission to use it in a presentation?


Thanks
Terry

Looks like a Bizarro, so the answer would be "from Dan Piraro.

However, I've seen a lot of Bizarro's used in academic settings and I haven't heard of Dan launching a lawsuit over it yet :-)

Yes, the last one is Bizzaro 12-30-07 (Dan Piraro, 2007-12-30).

Working on perspective:
(1)
World Ocean Heat Content and Thermosteric Sea Level change (0-2000 m), 1955-2010,
Discussion, page 5:
"[21] We have estimated an increase of 24 * 10^22 J representing a volume mean warming of 0.09 C of the 0 – 2000 m layer of the World Ocean.
If this heat were instantly transferred to the lower 10 km of the global atmosphere it would result in a volume mean warming of this atmospheric layer by approximately 36 C (65 F).
This transfer of course will not happen; earth’s climate system simply does not work like this. But this computation does provide a perspective on the amount of heating that the earth system has undergone since 1955."

(2)
http://www.skepticalscience.com/cherrypicking-deny-continued-ocean-global-warming.html
"...and when including global heat accumulation in Nuccitelli et al. (2012) including the 0–2,000 meter oceans, the Earth has accumulated the equivalent of 4 Hiroshima atomic bomb detonations per second over the past decade."

"Home", 2009 documentary, a bit outdated but still worth of watching even with sound off.


At the end: "It's up to us to write what happens next. Together."

Great documentary ivica, thanks! It's not dated at all, and it's wonderful!

#1
This society is parasitic. We feed on other life. What do we give in return?
We are destroying more than we create. We are regressive. No future in that.

#2
...->atoms->molecules->life->... is what progress is for me.
(The trend of) creating more complex entities using less complex entities, that is.

Does sky above us (Nature/Universe/..., whatever you prefer) says:
You Life->..., Follow me, 'Fusion' Is The Way.

---
What more we could want? What_To_Do & How_To_Do given, by Nature. No excuse.
(I don't know about peer review but it is 'published' over all Universe ;) )

#3
We are not the same, and in that is our strength.
We can act as one, and carry each other.
And we can do that again.

Future could be great.

EDIT: 2015-05-01: If they (the mindset that rules over us) are any good, why are we in trouble?

Edit: 2015-08-30: "in that" bolded
