EDIT:  WRONG.  It was a coal burnin power plant.  

At first I thought it was a coal burning thermo-electric plant and was going to say something about deadly, small particulate matter and carbon emissions being highly correlated.

Then I recognized it was indeed a nuclear power plant.  Which seems to be part of the answer to reducing carbon emissions and directly improving health outcomes.

I would love the media to be more careful but when most media businesses are racing to pump out new material on a daily basis, I'll save my prayers for unicorns and cute puppy dogs.  Even famous peer-reviewed academic articles get it wrong.  

This capacity for even the smartest among us to 'get it wrong' should inform our view of risk management but apparently it does not.

I think a lot of the time when people are given the task of finding an image to accompany an article they may think more about a visual impression than the actual content of the image.  Sometimes it seems more like an attempt a deception but in that case it seems more like someone was being careless and/or just thought it was a good photo.  Still, given the point of the article there's a little bit of irony in using that photo with the accompanying explanation.

R_P:  Is that Montréal?

The green copper roofs had me thinking Quebec City or Ottawa but I could not recognize the park/street configuration.

Great to see.

I don't know. Still trying to figure out what it is. The ideology of always taking things at face value perhaps?

@R_P:  Beauty!  Hilarious.  

Most amusing to see how educated, liberal snobs in Australia handle their own version of the culture wars thingie. 

Oh man, I almost feel guilty for enjoying that clip so much.

It was easy for the folks in the peace and disarmament movement of the 1980s.  It was rather hard to exaggerate what would happen in the event of full scale nuclear war between the USA and the Soviet Union or China for that matter.  Some still did go over the top.

The climate change/disruption debate has been marred by over  the top hyperbole and fear mongering from the get-go.   I do not approve but then I also understand that few people have the mathematical background to assess any of this.

I see people with PhDs and similar who deliberately mislead the public as foul, anti-democratic creatures.  Slithery, sleazy creatures just like Donald Trump. 


On the other hand, my expectations for a 16-year old are different.  It is OK to cut a 16-year old some slack.    The symbolism is powerful.

Were it simply just failing, I would say it is worth the try.  Problem is any realistic attempts to really get something done will require worldwide facism with extreme force and coercion.  So yea sometimes dead is better.

Oh ok very well.  Then she is consistent.  I wish her best of luck, but do not have high hopes in her getting what she wants.  She is facing an impossible task that is beyond humanity's capability to overcome.

Yes I know, she appears to be coopting the tweet to assure us she is indeed happy and optimistic about her future which seems to me to be contraindicated to her entire public persona.  For her sake, I hope she is happy, well adjusted and optimistic because that is the best perspective and attitude to achieve ones goals and to navigate a healthy and successful life.{#Meditate}
