Herculean Climate Rant to Rouse Humanity

Herculean Climate Rant to Rouse Humanity // Nov 8, 2018

I am only wearing a T-Shirt in this RANT as I walk to school in Ottawa. Problem is that we are in November, and I am at at latitude 45 N and it is a balmy 10 C (50 F). Dude, where is winter?? I chat on:

  • Rapid Climate Change, Arctic darkening,
  • Hope vs Hopelessness, Compassion, Resilience, Stoic Stoicism,
  • CDR, SRM, Iron Salt Aerosols, Marine Permaculture Arrays,
  • Sulphur, Biomimicry, Trees,
  • Artificial Cement, Sucking Carbon from the Sky and Water, and a lot of other cooling things.

Mini-Tsunami in Flooded Quarry, and Cement Chat // Nov 11, 2018

About a week ago, in this water filled quarry in Quebec, a rock wall collapsed, generating a tsunami that crossed the lake, picking up sand and rocks from the lake floor and casting them on the far shoreline. There was some damage to docks, etc; the amazing thing was that a submerged airplane in 25 feet of water was moved several feet by the force of the wave. Not sure if the sunken submarine at 60 feet depth was moved.

My 16yr old son had four scuba dives here this weekend, to successfully complete his scuba certification. I hiked around the site and chat about ideas to make cement limestone from CO2 that is captured from the atmosphere; this has great potential scalability.
