Comment The carbon cycle (Score 4, Insightful) 159

AFAIK co2 isn't bad in itself. Without co2 we'd have much more serious problems than we have now.

The point is that the co2 equilibrium is disturbed by the fact that man dig or pumps up fossil fuels that have been stored for millions of years thereby adding co2 to the atmosphere.

Burning wood, rotting vegetation, farting animals and bubbling reservoirs are part of the co2 balance already so are not the cause of the current problem.

(This is how I understand it which - admittedly - isn't saying much)

"It's TIOBE, and how should NASA releasing some code skew the search results for "assembly programming"?"

Sorry, I'm wearing my contacts ;-)

Anyway, the Apollo source is in assembly code. Quite a bit of it in fact and it's popular, thousands of people starred it in a short period in Github.

So what if TIOBE sees a large increase in lines of assembly on Github and thousands of stars and oncludes that assembly language is making a huge come back?

(I don't know how TIOBE calculates its results, but there must be some reasonable explanation. I do a lot in IoT and I see absolutely no signs of assembly language suddenly becoming more popular)
