01:31:24 kakobrekla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=09-01-2017#1465209 < well, climate is not cosntant and changes with or without humans present, thats for sure
01:31:24 assbot: Logged on 09-01-2017 15:58:06; funkenstein_: I guess global warming was a chinese konsp1rac33 after all
01:31:48 kakobrekla: its not clear what if any effect the co2 has
01:32:05 kakobrekla: it clearly does not have the 'greenhouse effect', that things works differently.
01:32:17 kakobrekla: the name is unfortunate
01:37:48 kakobrekla: the problem i notice is that we can just do an experiment and see what happens, we currently have only 1 planet (unless you are sufficiently selfish)
01:38:28 kakobrekla: cant*
03:48:45 punkman: the pages wikitards come up with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_opinion_on_climate_change
04:36:18 punkman: "The Board also determined that, following the Closing, it intends to cause the Company’s name to be changed to Altaba Inc. "
04:37:01 punkman: rip Yahoo
07:56:06 funkenstein_: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=10-01-2017#1465247 <-- important point, yes

07:56:16 funkenstein_: astronomers also don't bring this up enough
07:56:39 funkenstein_: this ain't empirical science
07:58:38 funkenstein_: but go stay at the concordiaplatzhutte some time and check out how much of the aletchgletscher has disappeared since they built the thing
08:00:04 funkenstein_: or descend from the aiguille du midi on the "mer de glace" , well, now known as the "mer de pierre"
08:01:40 funkenstein_: of all the rapid changes appearing at the advent of the anthropocene, global average temperature seems at first like one of the least atrributable or interesting
08:02:35 funkenstein_: it's only because it is a scalar and relatively measurable to some accuracy that we grasp hold of it
08:03:27 funkenstein_: you know the story, it's something we can measure - therefore it's important
08:05:17 punkman: measurable thing https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/75/AralSea1989_2014.jpg
08:06:49 funkenstein_: 哎呀 not much water left there eh
08:07:46 punkman: had to grow cotton
08:08:43 funkenstein_: yeah because when wealth is being drained by a system of private issued currency, you gotta use up all reserves of resources as fast as possible
08:13:18 punkman: any pics of the alpine glacier?
08:15:13 punkman: although I prefer "I drained the lake" to "I fart and the glacier melts"
08:17:48 punkman: now they have "how to deny the denial" courses, lulz https://www.edx.org/course/making-sense-climate-science-denial-uqx-denial101x-2
08:19:59 punkman: http://www.windows2universe.org/earth/climate/images/2glaciers.jpg 1856-1987
08:21:10 funkenstein_: yeah there's a good one
08:21:13 funkenstein_: damn
08:22:04 funkenstein_: i see climate change denial as general anti-intellectualism a la flat earth theory
08:22:22 funkenstein_: a good way to raise the middle finger to the academics who, well, probably deserve it
08:24:46 funkenstein_: but the there's probably those who would lump the entirely correct "our models still suck" into that category
08:37:43 funkenstein_: http://www.cmu.edu/news/stories/archives/2017/january/poker-pros-vs-AI.html <-- well I guess it's now safe to call my pocket calculator an AI
08:38:15 funkenstein_: soon elementary school children will be learning about the six simple AIs
08:40:34 punkman: you got a poker bot in your calculator?
08:45:47 funkenstein_: well it beats top multipliers in competition
09:03:03 funkenstein_: the nudes in the back on that photoshop look to be 20 meters tall or so
09:03:43 punkman: no they actually went there and stripped
09:06:13 funkenstein_: no way!
09:09:18 funkenstein_: awesome, thanks
13:27:58 funkenstein_: lulz factories out here working overtime: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1186/s40854-016-0045-6
13:29:21 funkenstein_: If pooling works, we can make pooling as part of a new consensus mechanism described as below. The essential of the new mechanism is trying to separate the Reporting Right and the Rewarding Value, and it treats the whole system as a single pool. It turns out a set of Socialism-style principles are introduced in the new mechanism including Distribution according to labor, A career open to all talents, without distinction of birth, All
13:29:21 funkenstein_: reated equal and The People?s Congress Mechanism.
13:32:09 funkenstein_: gotta love the language, even if the thing seems to be at the level of the first PPS pools
