Carbon dating on the turin shroud
It had been out in the Texas sun for five-years and it was falling apart. When you discuss “sustainable” just what the hell do you really mean? ” When you get to my age, only one story looks sustainable.Sure, we can leave all the skyscrapers alone as they are, but within 200 years, they will be falling down. Plastic gasketing on windows will fail, glass will fall. You may not remember the pill box hat-wearing elevator operator Robert, who ran the elevator inside the Smith Tower when the ACLU was there in the 1970’s, but it was a fine old building even then: “During a trip to Seattle in 1909, (Lyman Cornelius) Smith planned to build a 14-story building in Seattle.We’ll just call him Dave but he’s a great guy and asks a very intelligent on-point question: “George where do you come to the conclusion that the Earth can only Support 200 – 500 million people?” Honestly, it goes back to one of those bothersome “chicken and egg” questions of economics.Thinking through the Progress Problem is our breakfast special this morning.The other day in a post, I made a remark that bothered one of our readers.With no electricity (we went “low tech, sustainable” right?
