This week, Ivey Cone again interviewed me, in my recurring chat with Extinction Radio for their ‘All Things Climate’ feature.

[Methane, water vapor, hydroxyl radicals, way methane is removed from atmosphere, we are putting more water vapor in the atmosphere.  Varies by latitude.  Lot less OH- is formed in arctic.  Impacts lifetime.  When methane is emitting in arctic, can last longer.  Need to look at latitude, hydroxyl complicates picture–dk] 

‘Introduction; 03:48 Patrick Wilson founder of Activate Media, interviewed by Mike Ferrigan; 13:33 Meet the Contributors – interviewed by Ivey Cone; 45:04 Gail Zawacki describes the causes of the most recent mass extinction due to trees dying. – interviewed by Gene Gibson; 80:26 Paul Beckwith talking about the mechanism for Methane depletion in the upper atmosphere – interviewed by Ivey Cone; 88:26 John Compost Cossham [1] talk on climate given at climate change conference in York, UK in prep for COP21; 99:46 Carolyn Baker talking about the wonder of nature that is still available.

    I don’t know how well it would play on Extinction Radio but theory has it an antidote to extinction can be tested for real to bring fullest effort of enterprise to bare on reversing what harms Earth by snapping the value of monetary power unit to value Earth Real instead of the monetary power unit thus ending what is known as System Isolation at 2nd Law of Thermodynamics and forced entropy theoretically.
    The force of will-to-live with hope real would give internal resistance to back zoom of ingenuity of youth in a test of intelligence extinction hurtle in path of future life, really life of Sea at biosphere holding the place of Zeroth at Law between Solar output relative to Earth uptake of energy for HZ.
    The zoom of enterprise to retool to take on the worthy goal of keeping Earth home, Sea of Life fun would be astronomical and appreciated in the Universe at large for ever more without exception..
    Thank you for your work and true grit, and the idea of cats could be employ of quantum delta 2C..
    Test of theory at quantum mechanics and communications net large at extinction event. w physics

  2. Paul has received about 200 to 250 spam comments, and this is the first time that we have elected to publish one. Having myself operated a chess blog for ten years, which had 100k visitors, it got to where I was getting twenty or thirty spam a day. Now and again, I would find one so lyrical, that I started to compile them, and resulted in a wonderful collection, sometimes epic or funny or profound. So here. Congratulations to whoever configured a device to create this, if such be the case. Bravo! dk
