Granted, but the exam is vector calculus.

I wish to learn how to operate a brain.

@Finn123
Is that the "log campus"? At least looks a lot like it as I remember.

@Kuusi Iron fertilization is a lovely notion, but Liebig's barrel is relevant here. Increases in oceanic bioproductivity are impossible in existing hypoxic seascapes like your Baltic and our Gulf; and places unaffected by hyperfertilization still should not have their oxygen reserves stressed into a dead zone. Solve the oxygenation problem, though, and you're not just a green hero, but rich: aquaculturists would pay good money for a method for oxygenating water without causing nitrogen lethality and gas bubble disease in their fish.

I keep praying for a giant meteor to end it all, but it just keeps happening.

Banned because I don't use calculators.



Topic: Banned away 12 1 hour ago #9690951      

Banned because it helps a lot e.g. when you have to give log something.

Granted, you conquer Bavaria and Poland. However, this is the 21st Century, where Imperialism is no longer seen as glorious. The UN condemns the Austrian Empire and its actions.

I wish I had learned how to operate a calculator.

So, I have a friend (the same one that Nick was talking about) who may be joining the forums soon, since they just finished reading all of the SatW comics.

Everybody be nice to them!

@SvenTheBold you might want to phrase it better. Also not obvious what kind of history do you mean.



Everything is possible when you don't believe 2 hours ago #9690942      

There's way too much politics in climate research, so it's mostly not a proper science any more (heavy competition of grants affects this).
I'm waiting for a climate model of the present climate that doesn't fix it self with various black boxes (factors based on how to force the model to stay in balance without knowing anything about the actual physical prosesses behind it). Only after we have a proper model of the current climate we can simulate what happens if something changes.
And I would like to see some estimations of clouds and how it affects the situation (clouds block IR much better than CO2).
Also the solutions for CO2 are wrong as fertilizing the seas with iron would be much more efficient than anything else we are able to do in a short time.
(I'm really frustrated about these climate news and all the politics and of all the people trying to profit from this)

Granted, you can no longer test your knowledge in school, which means you can no longer move forward in school.

I wish I could bring glory to the Austrian Empire by conquering Bavaria and Poland.

@comrade_Comrade And are we telling China to take a timecourse of impact, or pretending history doesn't matter?

@NickOfForvania Oh, sure!

How's everything going?



Everything is possible when you don't believe 2 hours ago #9690938      

@Rogers "I'm going after China as well, belive me. ... put more pressure on the Chinese to do their part."
Add a "frankly" and "very very great" and it looks like you're quoting Trump.



Everything is possible when you don't believe 2 hours ago #9690937      

...yeah, but, surely you guys understand the concept of believing in someone, right? Trust cannot possibly be a foreign concept to you? Fundamentally, these statements of "believe in X scientific position" are really just an idiomatic restatement of "believe X scientist on the basis of the personal trust".

Take any person who doesn't believe in any given modern scientific consensus, whether the reality of climate change or literal gravity or the efficacy of vaccinations or the safety of GMOS and press them long enough about their beliefs, and you'll end up with someone expressing a vast mistrust of a certain class of people: usually government; sometimes corporations; and often, by extension of those, other people like teachers and scientists.

The reason there are so many people in the US who "don't believe in climate change" is because the US is, was, and always has been a nation with a pervasive distrust of authority. And who, honestly, can blame us? We're mostly a nation of ex-refugees and ex-slaves. My own personal ancestors fled religious persecution in Europe. Most of us were persecuted by the Anglos once we got here; and those few remaining souls whose family history doesn't include a component of them fleeing to this continent to escape some terrible fate somewhere else? They're either the ex-Brits who overthrew their king in his own colony, or indigenous survivors who watched and/or were forced to flee while people with strange tongues and stranger ways reshaped the land itself to fit a vision not of this continent.

@Rogers but if you visit Siberia, you can enjoy a road made of dead prisoners of a whole range of nationalities. Diversity is strength - Japanese and Italians are a great filler for gaps between Germans and Russians. The most classless community ever built.

@Asheram someone should tell that to China.

@Tyekanik Well, it's not like the country should pay in accordance to its size and effect on the climate, right?

@Tyekanik

"The boat is sinking!"
"Yeah right, I had a dream it flew into the air, and that didn't happen!"
"Look! It's really sinking!"
"And there was the time we almost hit an iceberg but changed course at the last second and only scraped it. We didn't sink then, so we can't possibly be sinking now."

@Tyekanik Humanity largely solved the Ozone depletion crisis in the late 80s and 90s. It was possible to ban the production of Ozone depleting chemicals. This is going to be a lot harder with Climate change

Granted, it does... 1000 years later.

I wish tests were eliminated.
