    This feels unduly pessimistic about the future, and the idea of a film archive for future generations to be able to see what we had but that will not be there in their time has a hint of (to use an in vogue word here in the UK) surrender. Nature always reconstitutes itself. The fossil record shows that. The human species may not survive, but nature will.This is a real ‘archive’, for actual nature;

    Nice scenery. The US, from Florida to Alaska, from Maine to San Diego, and between, the US is awash in gorgeous scenery, and there are tons of books, films, etc. celebrating those wonders. One more film? Fine,Climate change? The geological record clearly shows that the climate has always been changing, from the cooling of the 1940s back, literally, to the big bang.Broadly the reasons for these changes are well understood from solid science.In particular that science shows that humans have had no significant effect on such changes and have no realistic ability to have any such effects now. In particular, human efforts to affect climate change are ignorant, uninformed, misinformed, wasteful nonsense.In short, it ain’t a problem, and when there’s no problem don’t fix it!But it IS pretty scenery!

      I’ve been searching for some climate data that reaches back to the big bang. Could you provide the references for that?

      1. sigmaalgebra…Temperature 10^32 K, some serious warming.All the elements on earth in the periodic table other than hydrogen necessarily were created at astoundingly high temperatures. Much heavier than helium, they were created in exploding stars and/or neutron stars. Essentially all the iron was created in the centers of stars, hot enough there to give a serious sun burn!

    On an Old Topic:Looks like “Naaaaast Nancy, The San Francisco Treat” just got at least her toe, to borrow from Watergate, “caught in a wringer”!Apparently she thought that she had just hooked a live one for another, bigger witch hunt — Ukraine-Gate, total “smoking gun”, guaranteed Trump impeachment material, from some anonymous source who heard at a bar from a friend they got from their drug dealer who claimed to have a source … or some such. Real solid “smoking gun” there Naaaaaaaast Nancy!But:(1) Right away Trump released the full phone transcript, fully declassified, with no redactions, that clearly, explicitly, unambiguously showed Trump just doing a really good job just doing his very important job andNOTHING WRONG.(2) As at…Trump just had a terrific press conference with the new leader of Ukraine, the same person Trump had the phone conversation with, fully confirming Trump just doing a really good job just doing his very important job andNOTHING WRONG.(3) Some Republicans in the Senate have started collecting LOTS of records about Biden and Son Gate!!!!Sorry, Nancy, here’s your sympathy, empathy, and fresh, new, full box of Man Sized Kleenex. Better luck next time.Uh, Nancy, the standard rule is”Ready, aim, fire.”and certainly not”Not ready, fire, maybe never aim.”you got from the Squad, etc.?Sure, Nancy, you were afraid your Dems might lose in 2020. No mere fears now, Nancy — now you are in line to lose “big league”, as you so richly deserve and have worked so hard to achieve.Uh, Nancy, let me help you out here: Some acetone might melt the super glue that has your eyelids stuck to your forehead!

    It’s “pay the bills” day. Yesterday the WSJ reported that over $250M was spent on Influencer Marketing in Q1 2019.….About 100 years ago the first radio stations began broadcasting to regional audiences with sponsored advertising. Today we each have the ability to create our own individual broadcasting networks that can reach global audiences of millions, if we have something of interest to share.
