Of course they are - because many kids today have a far better grasp of
reality and science than you do. Previous generations have totally
disregarded the abuse of the planet and overuse of resources - they have
been happy to push the problems on to the future generations.

Previous generations, many by now, have predicted imminent doom: peak
oil, global cooling, mass starvation, using up all the metals. It
hasn\'t happened; things keep getting better.

Those weren\'t predictions - more ill-informed warnings about what might happen.

Anthropogenic global warming is real and happening now, creating real problems and killing real people, and there are excellent observations that show that it is getting worse quite rapidly.

> Nobody seems to be pointing out to the kids how well off they are by historical standards. Ungrateful little brats.

Steve Pinker has written a book about it

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlightenment_Now

Of course an enlightened approach to anthropogenic global warming involves doing something about it before it gets even worse, and John Larkin doesn\'t feel like being that enlightened.

> You\'re being tribal again. Beats thinking.

That\'s our John Larkin. He can\'t think and won\'t think, and posts tribal slurs against people who can and do.

have been happy in the knowledge that you\'ll be dead before
the seas swamp your cities so it is not /your/ problem.

At 2 mm per year, we\'ll probably have another ice age before we drown.

That 2mm per year is the thermal expansion of the existing oceans. John Larkin ignores the the six metres of sea level rise tied up in the Greenland ice sheet, and the four metres tied up in the West Antarctic ice sheet, which will make themselves felt quite rapidly when these ice sheets chose to slide off into the ocean (as a whole bunch if ice sheets did at the end of the most recent ice age).

> Being a mile deep in ice *would* be a lot worse than ankle-deep in warm sea water. Make more CO2.

10 metres of sea level rise isn\'t ankle deep, and we\'ve already dumped enough CO2 into the atmosphere to immunise us against another ice age for a few tens of thousands of year.

> The big sea level problem in coastal cities is manmade subsidence from pumping out groundwater. Bad for real estate values for the beach villas.

It is right now. When the ice sheets start sliding more rapidly, we\'ll be in a different situation.

Phil may think that. It\'s the kind of unrealistic nonsense he does like to believe.

Except that David Brown isn\'t any kind of fuckwit, and Phil Allison\'s addiction to the nonsense he hears on Sky News and his delusions about autists under every bed mark him out as classic fuckwit. He does know quite a bit about audio electronics, but that merely makes him an idiot savant. They do tend to suffer from autism.

Don\'t be silly; climate change is susceptible to investigation and contemplation

Far from it. A lot further from that state than Phil is. If anybody who posts here is on the autism spectrum it\'s got to be Phil - he sees more austism than the rest of us put together, and lot more than you\'d expect from the known population incidence, so it does look as if Phil has a personal interest in the problem. and there was nothing moronic about his post - quite the reverse (which may be part of the problem, for Phil).

Still, I\'m glad at least some people enjoyed it -
it seems even Phil Allison liked it in his own somewhat peculiar fashion.

** My god - is there no end to this brain dead POS\'s putrid insanity.

I think the implication was that you weren\'t quite as far over the top in your objections to it as you have been known to be - you were merely cross rather than throwing your usual screaming tantrum.

> His skull must be 2 inches fucking thick.

Phil draws a nonsense conclusion from his own bizarre reading of a perfectly sensible comment (which he naturally doesn\'t want to agree with).

After extensive controlled experiments, we have found that wild birds
by far prefer Fritos. So do squirrels.

We have a local one-legged scrub jay \"Gimpy\" that will rip a Frito out
of my hand, mid-air if I\'m too slow putting them down on the deck.

The jays and the ravens fight over the Fritos. The jays win.

I design in public; actual problems, sims, circuits, parts, boards,
boxes. It makes for conversation and idea sharing. It helps me think.
I have met some cool people.

It\'s not ego; I just like electronics. When have I boasted about being
much better than everyone else? Cite? Besides, it\'s not true.

Sadly, the endless ritual insults and old-hen-clucking here have
driven away a few really good and candid people. I\'m not so much
better than other engineers, merely still here and talking about
electronics.

Most people here keep a lot of details to themselves, presenting
under-specified problems that they want help with, when they have no
reason to do that. Only a few people are open and generous about the
topic here, electronic design. I wonder why so many people are so
secretive, even amateurs who have no employer NDAs or anything.

If I post a sim or a schematic or a PCB layout, why would you think
that is boasting? Weird.
