[Increased awareness shown by simple demographics and view count:  increased awareness on the part of four Scandinavian countries.  As I said a few weeks back, as many as eleven major European Countries does not even equal the number of views from Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark combined in the last week.

And this accounts for the marked increase in France at this juncture, otherwise it would be more like fifteen or sixteen countries approaching those four alone.  Evidence from the last month or two at Paul’s site, show they clearly have more interest and, on the margin probably much greater concern per capita.  This has been a consistent pattern day after day and week after week in the last two months here.

That is to say:
one view per 446,000 Americans this week,
one view per 330,000 Canada/UK/Australia/NZ,
one view per 286,000 combined eleven European Countries: Fran/Neth/Germ/Belg (4), and: Port/Irl/Ita/Swit/Rom/Slv/Aus (7) = 11, and
one view per 23,800 persons in Norway/Sweden/Finland/Denmark!

Considering that most in groups one and two get to read Paul in their mother tongue, and groups three and four mostly will have English as a second language, makes this all the more notable.  Awareness coefficient indeed.

    Maybe its time to cut out the sycophantic selfies and move on to some serious climate change comment? [dk: Very well said. Like your spirit. Thank you!]

    The covenant between Earth and Man is host and parasite as in system isolation of Earth Sea that holds planet type M within Habitable Zone relative to liquid water. That is because of Midas Touch of Intelligence Extinction as specie Corporate Worm took over. We as little guys can try and snap our fingers and say ta, don’t do that any more, don’t worship money and power and bling an fame but the true situation is we chose bling and corporate work to oblivion on a finite Earth ring fenced.
    The Earth was not for the taking but for our stewardship at heart in support of or respect for Earth.
    Paul’s bar stool analogy has three little legs, reduce emissions, draw down sky’s heat trapping gas load to safe level and 3rd, shield Earth from incoming solar radiance till we get Earth back to normal. Normal can only be accomplished by quantum change to Open System at world enterprise using Act of God writ: value of world’s work is relative to how well the product supports Earth Real..
    This is validated by inspection of 2nd Law of thermodynamics at system isolation of Zeroth Law at how the Sea of Life in mild clime formerly held solar radiance gain stable through IR opacity out..
