  1. OP, after all your time spent looking into climate change, are you hopeful or distressed at our progress so far?

  2. My primary focus was on the technical aspect and the feasibly of implementing CO2 sequestration rapidly if that's what it came to. From what I've read it seems possible, but the question remains: how much will our way of life change as a result of waiting to do something? And what side effects will result from whatever technologies we choose as a means of CO2 sequestration.

  3. A humble request to also look into Soil Desertification. A lot of carbon can be sequestered in Soil. If we work on increasing the organic content of Soil, it will be easier to reduce our Carbon Footprint. The idea is to work on the farm lands and improve the quality of soil. Since degraded soil(Soil Desertification) is one of the main reasons for the problem.

  4. Thanks that's been on my list to look deeper into! I recently read

  5. Thanks! From the brief amount I read they propose some fascinating ideas, definitely will be looking into it more this weekend.

  6. There was a tweet or a reddit post I saw awhile ago, it was for a fake/joke teacher job posting. It went something like this. Arming teachers is so stupid.

  7. As far as I know, we still don't know why scorpions, and apparently this guy, appear this way under UV light ...right?

  8. Yeah pretty much, here are some interesting hypotheses:

  9. Interesting ty! I would think the uv radiation protection angle would make sense given the constant threat it's posed throughout the history of life on earth.

  10. No problem! And UV protection does seem reasonable especially with high elevations, but its just so understudied its hard to say.

  11. Not sure what he's at now, but JDH is great. Dude literally wired a computer from scratch lol. And

  12. All the deep sea anglerfish you see pictures of with the lil lights hanging over their heads? They're all female.

  13. Some anglerfish, like those of the Ceratiidae, or sea devils employ an unusual mating method. Because individuals are locally rare, encounters are also very rare. Therefore, finding a mate is problematic. When scientists first started capturing ceratioid anglerfish, they noticed that all of the specimens were female.

  14. Snakes don't have eyelids. If you see a snake blink, that's a legless lizard.

  15. More than 200 species of legless lizards exist. Sometimes they're called glass lizards because they are easily broken.

  16. Depends on if our crops can survive. All it takes is one bad crop cycle and it all goes to shit.
