@kensanata Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to get DNA off this star system and established in another. This opportunity will self destruct in 1.75b years.

I recommend mushroom spores and tardigrades.

@ink_slinger Ther are little bits of weird still lying around. For instance, there's a rabbit hole here.

@vfrmedia Take the point. The problem now is globalisation. Meaning it's much harder to draw examples when a chip foundry in Germany (or solar cell deployment, or wind turbine) is dependent on resources from numerous places all round the world.

@cypnk 30 years is shorthand for the boundary between quantitative and qualitative revolutionary change. It's the point where linear extrapolation of trends breaks down.

Which is why 2050 is the new 2030.

If the UK bans sales of petrol and diesel vehicles in 2040, does that include PTWs? (Powered Two Wheelers).

A question I've asked before: What's the minimum viable civilisation that can support a chip foundry?

So: What's the minimum total fossil fuel use that can build and run a chip foundry?


New status by jbond · Mastodon View the site

The combustion of fossil carbon can be defined as an "autocatalytic" reaction, in the sense that it generates structures that accelerate the reaction rate.

http://cassandralegacy.blogspot.com/2017/07/stereocene-future-of-ecosystem.html

So here's the question. Can we convert that into an "Auto-reduction" system that generates structures that eliminate the reaction.

So I said,

"And round we go again. The vast majority of Labour members, supporters and voters want Remain. Especially the new and young ones. So how bad does Brexit have to get and how bad does the Tory chaos have to get before Labour's stance and policies reflect that?"

So they said,

"If this is true, why did pretty much every Labour constituency outside London vote Leave?"

So compare the maps. Election vs Referendum

There's a kind of truth there, particularly in the North. But there's also clearly a lot of nuance. There's quite a number of constituencies outside London that were Labour-Remain. And that's true even in areas that might be thought of as "Traditional Labour Heartland".

The Labour problem that 60% (or whatever) voters want remain, but 60% of Labour seats wanted Leave is still around. But that was then. What's important now is whether that dynamic is changing. The perception is that the proportion wanting Remain is rising. And the proportion in the marginal and balanced seats is also rising. So even though there are seats that were Labour-Leave then, on balance now they're Labour-Remain. But that's a guess. What is there to back it up?
