The Earthquake Early Warning system coming on-line changes much. The EEW sends screaming alerts to millions of cell phones on the West Coast, providing perhaps a few seconds notice in front of seismic waves approaching from quakes already having transpired.

The greater problem, a society lurching so precipitously toward degeneracy that it is lackadaisical about its fundamental duty to guard and preserve its own children, male or female. That doesn’t bode well at all; even reptiles are known to defend their offspring.

Corn is one of the worst candidates of any crop for conversion to biofuel. The amount of energy that goes into producing one gallon of ethanol from corn, as opposed to the extra amount liberated at end, gives out a truly pathetic calculus: an additional 28 percent.

Humanity, we now realize, has been on Earth long enough to have seen multiple ice ages come and go, along with the interglacials between them, as well as the current span of 12,000 years of clement climate currently enjoyed.

Needing a breathing apparatus to navigate through smoke-filled Beijing doesn’t evoke even a remark from activists who are apoplectic about Americans barbecuing in their back yards. A good part of ecology, unfortunately, has been converted to something much closer to politics.

A starship is also a time machine, but only into the future. Cruising at speeds just below the velocity of light, a crew returning to Earth after what seemed to them like 10 or 20 years would find that many centuries had passed, which presumably would be disconcerting.
