GoT - The Musical!

Since it hasn't yet been posted, here's the full video of Coldplay trying to develop a Game of Thrones musical (in jest, of course, as part of NBC's Red Nose charity event):

Re: 1ft => $200 billion => 0.01%

It isn't linear - it more like:

1 ft - $200 billion
2 ft - $2 trillion
3 ft - $20 trillion
4 ft - $200 trillion


I don't think so.

I mean, I think the cost would certainly rise from one feet to two feet. [more]

So you are fine writing off south Florida, south Louisiana, lots of other highly valuable real estate on every shoreline of the east and gulf coasts, along with more limited but still substantial impact on west coast real estate?

So, with no Mance, the TV show needs something else to spark Theon's rediscovery of self, and I guess abuse of someone he had been all-but siblings with might do it. [more]

I don't believe I've ever seen anyone trying to lay all the cost of boosting the electric vehicle industry onto carbon reduction alone. There are myriad reasons for it.

Perhaps - but being a cost-efficient way of reducing carbon isn't [more]

They're very uncomfortable, but why is it that you have a rape which isn't actually shown on screen creating massive controversy, and then the Red Wedding mass slaughter doesn't cause anything like that?

So much controversy out there about the rape scene, and no mention of it here? I watched the episode on Monday night, so I saw spoiler headlines about how HBO crossed the line and general outrage about how

Not only did we break it; now we are shirking our responsibility to own it.

What do you think we should be doing?

You do realize this is a one-time application for long-term results?

Yes - that was a typo. Should be 70 million tons, not per year.

That is a lot of organic waste that is diverted from land fills and available for soil enhancement.

The results are more productive rangelands, carbon capture, reduced waste to landfills, and less methane produced.

Typical lawyer work though... drawing conclusions is something you're trained to NOT do?

By my recollection, long-term wetlands are supposed to be good carbon sinks because of rapid plant growth (fast carbon uptake) and relatively stable carbon storage properties. There is evidence that newly restored wetlands and those disturbed by [more]

There are many instances of substantial and significant land use changes that are not particularly difficult. Wetlands restoration and reforestation are a couple of examples. The U.S. owns a great deal of public lands. These can be managed to more [more]

Re: Gambling on snake-eyes

I don't know about anyone else here but a 10% chance of human extinction is pretty much panic time in my book.
