TROUBLING CLIMATE CHANGE SCENARIOS

PERHAPS, HUMANITY WILL EVOLVE  IT'S THINKING; STOPPING WARS AND STARTING TO FIX OUR EARTH PLANET INSTEAD - from The Old Mountain Goat!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/04/28/global-warming-could-deplete-the-oceans-oxygen-levels-with-severe-consequences/?postshare=1471461874258135&tid=ss_fb

"...In the long list of troubling climate change scenarios, there’s one that gets relatively little attention, but definitely has enormous potential consequences..."

It goes like this:

"...The oceans are getting warmer — they are, after all, where 90 percent of global warming actually ends up. And when they warm up they expand, because that’s what warm water does. This raises our sea levels, but it also has another effect — it reduces the amount of oxygen dissolved in the water. That’s simply physics: Warmer water contains less oxygen..."

"...But it’s worse: If surface water is warmer, it doesn’t mix down as much into the ocean depths any longer. It’s less dense, and so less capable of doing that. That means that oxygen that enters the ocean in its upper layers — either through exchange with the atmosphere, or because it is generated by tiny photosynthesizing microorganisms, called phytoplankton, that hang out up there — won’t mix down into the deep as often..."
Scientists say the human role in ocean oxygen depletion could be apparent as soon as the 2030s.

FOR: McDonald's Employees, Taxpayers?

"THIS" IS NOT A LEVEL FIELD FOR "EVERYONE" - from The Old Mountain Goat!

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/28/opinion/at-mcdonalds-fat-profits-but-lean-wages.html?emc=edit_ty_20160428&nl=opinion&nlid=43648817&_r=0

All of which is good news for the executives and shareholders of McDonald’s. But when, if ever, will it be good news for McDonald’s employees and for taxpayers?
The fast-food giant has done well for its executives and shareholders, at the expense of most of its workers and the taxpayers.

SEEDS SURVIVE!

THE CAN SURVIVE FOR DECADES - The Old Mountain Goat knows about "this"!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2016/04/22/ancient-birds-tiny-secret-to-outliving-the-dinosaurs-seeds/?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_science

"This makes sense, because a forest fire will burn all the foliage and decimate the animal population, but seeds are in their protective shell," he said. "They survive these major disruptions, and they can survive for decades.”
While other plants and animals withered in the devastated landscape, birds with beaks made the best of things.

"...I AM EMBARRASSED TO BE A REPUBLICAN..."

Don’t Think Republican or Democrat

"CHANGE" FROM "CONSERVATIVE" INTO "PROGRESSIVE" THINKING - from The Old Mountain Goat!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ashamed-to-be-republican/2016/04/22/d80098e2-07fd-11e6-bdcb-0133da18418d_story.html?wpmm=1&wpisrc=nl_opinions

"...I was proud to be a Republican. The GOP I worked for, fundraised for and fundamentally believed in put forward candidates who reflected my values. But now? I’m embarrassed to be a Republican because of who is leading in the polls. We’ve become a party that preys on the discouraged, not one that fosters hope. We’re incentivizing anger, not integrity. We tear down others to promote ourselves. If our current front-runner is the GOP candidate, I won’t vote Republican in November. I’m still stuck in that dressing room: I know what I want. I just can’t seem to find it..."

Why I’m ashamed to be Republican
The candidate leading in the polls doesn’t represent my values.

TEENAGERS AT ALL-TIME LOW!

THIS IS "GOOD" FOR HUMANITY - from The Old Mountain Goat!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2016/04/28/teen-birth-rate-hits-all-time-low-led-by-50-percent-decline-among-hispanics-and-blacks/?wpisrc=al_alert-national

"...The birth rate among American teenagers, at crisis levels in the 1990s, has fallen to an all-time low, according to an analysis released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention..."

"...The decline of the past decade has occurred in all regions in the country and among all races. But the most radical changes have been among Hispanic and black teens, whose birth rates have dropped nearly 50 percent since 2006..."

"...Theories on the reasons for the dramatic shift include everything from new approaches to sex education to the widespread availability of broadband Internet (more on this later). But most experts agree on the two major causes..."
The decline that has taken place over the past decade has been happening in all regions and among all races and ethnicities.

PROGRESSIVE THINKING FOR HUMANITY

http://delanceyplace.com/view-archives.php?commentsMsg=added&p=3056&utm_source=Brown+is+the+New+White+2-7&utm_campaign=4%2F27%2F16&utm_medium=email#comments

A MASSIVE DEMOGRAPHIC UPHEAVAL IN THE UNITED STATES

" "The country's demographic revolution over the past fifty years has given birth to a New American Majority. Progressive people of color now comprise 23 percent of all the eligible voters in America, and progressive Whites account for 28 percent of all eligible voters. Together, these constituencies make up 51 percent of the country's citizen voting age population, and that majority is getting bigger every single day. ..."

THIS MEANS THAT "PROGRESSIVE THINKING" IS ALREADY "OVER 51%"; THIS "MAJORITY" WILL GROW BIGGER EACH DAY - The Old Mountain Goat feels "GOOD ABOUT THIS"!

HIS VISION WAS LIMITED!

PRESIDENT ANDREW JOHNSON WAS NOT ONE FOR THE NATION - The Old Mountain Goat understands that there are "Good and Bad People in every Mix, Everywhere"!

http://delanceyplace.com/view-archives.php?commentsMsg=added&p=3055&utm_source=Andrew+Johnson+40-42&utm_campaign=4%2F26%2F16&utm_medium=email#comments

"...Those questions about procedure could have been answered in a different way if the leadership within the government, that is to say, people like Andrew Johnson, had tried to intervene to curb some of the abuses. The efficacy of railroads themselves should never have been in serious dispute.

"Johnson's response to the idea of bringing the railroad to eastern Tennessee tells a great deal about him. His vision for America's future was limited. The man who had such keen instincts about how to engineer his own rise and future by stepping outside of conventional wisdom was never able to translate those insights to matters affecting anything other than his own personal progress..."

CHANGE FOR OIL

FYI - THINGS WILL "CHANGE" FOR "OIL", JUST AS "EVERYTHING ELSE", the Old Mountain Goat knows about our history from "Earth Planet", and it's "Humanity"!

"COMMUNICATING" RESULTS TO "OUTSIDERS"

"THIS" WORKS FOR "EVERYONE" THAT "WANTS IT"  - The Old Mountain Goat knows, engineering and mathematics was my "base"!

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/25/opinion/the-mathematicians-90th-birthday-party.html?emc=edit_ty_20160425&nl=opinion&nlid=43648817&_r=0

"...With doctorates in both engineering and mathematics, Ivo is also an example of someone who bridges two fields. In this, he embodies another skill enhanced by experience — the ability to interact with non-mathematicians, to interpret their questions mathematically and to explain solutions in their language.

Hardy dismissed exposition as “work for second-rate minds,” but such activity is critical for a field notoriously inept at communicating its results to outsiders..."
Young brains may be brasher, but some ideas emerge only with the deep insight of a long career.

THE OCTOPUS

http://delanceyplace.com/view-archives.php?commentsMsg=added&p=3054&utm_source=The+Soul+of+an+Octopus+159-161&utm_campaign=4%2F25%2F16&utm_medium=email#comments

" 'Octopus arms really are like separate creatures,' Scott [Dowd, Aquarium Biologist at the New England Aquarium] agrees. Not only can they grow new arms when needed; there is evidence that, on occasion, an octopus chooses to detach its own arm, even in the absence of a predator. (Tarantulas do this too -- if a leg is injured, they will break if off and eat it.)

AMAZING, AS "WE LEARN": from The Old Mountain Goat

PROGRESSIVE vs. CONSERVATIVE THINKING EARTH PLANET ALWAYS GOES FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE - GOOD OR BAD! PROGRESSIVES TRY TO GO FORWARD BECAUS
Introduction
"The Old Mountain Goat"

Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog - now, also let go of his life) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of life" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagle’s Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner self!

"Thoughts"

Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love
Beware of Charlatans*
*False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk!
Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced
Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self

"Facts"

Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand!

Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more!

Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand!

"So"

That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!

What am I afraid of and why? Because, after living many experiences, and with my mind still balanced with my thoughts and thinking, what is there to be afraid of, as I slowly get to the time of letting go from life - and, perhaps, going forward to more adventures! -The Old Goat-
