    One thing that I do to help me to stay organized is to save links to threads of particular interest to myself. That way, I can look at my list when I find an article of relevant interest that I want to post. Then I click the saved link bringing me right to the desired thread.

Study published in Nature says that geoengineering would reduce crop yields by about the same amount as the damage from Global Warming: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-018-0417-3 There would likely be other effects, like to global weather patterns and ecosystems.

It is a fucking shame i have to defend Donald Trump as I like the idea of spending defense dollars in space. Doesn't mean that he isn't a snake

    So today is i get to an asteroid and mine it , its not mine ?

    I think that with preasence and private industrialism of space , those laws will be ignored bend and after obsoletness , removed.

    It doesn’t need to be black and white. Admiring particular actions that he undertakes and that you support doesn’t make you a supporter of Trump in his entirety. It shows maturity to be able to commend specific aspects of a person or individual deeds they do even when you find em abhorrent. I agree that the U.S. feds ought place more attention in space and know SpaceX will benefit from that. That’s very exciting.

    There's a reason those space militarisation treaties were signed during the cold war, Sciencerocks.

I just finished Black Mirror S02E02, "White Bear" and I want to comment on it. Don't expand for spoilers. Seriously watch the episode (black mirror is a collection of sci-fi short films presented as episodes, watch that one specifically but theyre all great) it's a masterpiece of social commentary.

    Even if the girl remembered her crimes, it was still wrong. Unbelievably fucking wrong. Taking relief or pleasure in another's pain under the pretense of punishment is no better than any sin of who you punish. The scary thing is, I've seen discussions online and there is a sizeable group where people think she actually deserves it. And there's another thing, if the crime does not involve you as a victim, stick it up your ass. Hate-culture is real, and this episode has made it so c...

    clear. Holy shit. When you think about all the comments you see under youtube videos or liveleak videos where a person does soemthing morally reprensible, and just the amount of vitriol and punishment they think the person should recieve. It's justice porn. Society is full of justice porn addicts fueling mob mentality.

    Bravo BM, you changed my mind about capital punishment and justice.

Insightful piece by Masha Gessen: https://www.newyorker.com/news/our-columnists/how-qanon-and-sacha-baron-cohen-speak-to-the-same-desperate-need/ Especially: "“Who Is America?” may appear as if it exposes evil, when really Baron Cohen is exposing the extreme flexibility of social norms... There is a valuable reminder here that the failure to draw a line can lead one not only into the realm of the ridiculous but also into the realm of the morally reprehensible."

Ask many children today what “dial (verb)” means, and they will tap, tap, tap on the table as though it’s a smartphone. Many have never interacted with rotary phones, and never think that that’s what the term refers to. Other words like “Russia", “China", “CIA", “NSA" similarly mean different things to them, than to older generations.

    In time, all the connotations of these words fade away, lost in the waters of time.

    That is true of every generation , and a source of confusion between cultures and individual.

    How many use paper map an atlas or a paper encyclopedia ?

    And thier expireince of boredom is different , when waiting in line or on a long drive.

    NSA = Big Brother

    CIA = State Goons

    Russia = Oligarchy

    China = Empire

    And apparently Facebook = Zucc '-'

Eventually as the consequences of global warming begin to get worse and worse, speculation will reverse and governments will make active efforts to combat it internationally. Including the US.

    One of the measures we'll see is a dramatic increase in carbon pricing. This will be expanded to practically every country in the world. It will cause a massive "carbon bubble" and financial collapse. https://www.futuretimeline.net/21stcentury/2046.htm#carbon

    As long as people such as Donald Trump are elected into office, nothing will ever change. I cannot emphasise this enough: the older generations need to clock out before we can progress as a species.

    I don't think it's age as much as liberalism being broken no matter the form it takes. There are old people who are environmentalists they're just not in positions of power, and if they were, our system of governance would put them down.

Tesla going private would be excellent for the company. It just seems to fit Musk's style of management more.
