Climate Damage 'Irreversible' According Leaked Climate Report

camg188 Re:Impacts (525 comments)

So maybe instead of the past "billion years" we should focus on say the past 50million

Ok. Consider the Cenezoic era, the "Age of Mammals". For a majority of this era it has been so warm that there have been no polar ice caps

With Chinese Investment, Nicaraguan Passage Could Dwarf Panama Canal

camg188 Re:Geography of panama vs nicaragua (322 comments)

I think the altitude difference may be a bigger factor than the length of the canal.

With Chinese Investment, Nicaraguan Passage Could Dwarf Panama Canal

camg188 Re:And then ... (322 comments)

I don't think you need to fear that. The US gave control of the Panama canal to Panama back in the 80's. Why would it be different in Nicaragua, particularly if the US didn't build it?

With Chinese Investment, Nicaraguan Passage Could Dwarf Panama Canal

camg188 Geography of panama vs nicaragua (322 comments)

A quick look at google maps and I estimate
Panama is about 40 miles across and about 150 feet (65 k, 40 m) of altitude to overcome.
Nicaragua is about 150 miles and about 650 feet (240 k, 200 m) of altitude to overcome. The altitude difference would add a lot to operating expenses. They'd have to pump a lot of water to locks about 600 feet higher than in Panama.

Cable Companies: We're Afraid Netflix Will Demand Payment From ISPs

camg188 Re:What? (200 comments)

It is insane to think we are owned by corporations

We are talking about Netflix/ISP charges for streaming entertainment programming, right? If you can't think of a single alternative, then you are owned.

Oso Disaster Had Its Roots In Earlier Landslides

camg188 Re:eh? (64 comments)

I wonder how much news coverage that landslide got in Asia or Africa? If it happens somewhere else it's bad, if it happens in your backyard it's a catastrophe.

Politicians make lots money from the "poor" demographic, so they will get inundated by the worst, most dishonest advertising of them all.
Oh, and also advertising for the lottery.
