Tangentially Speaking

396 – Video ROMA 1

By October 7, 2019 4 Comments

This is the soundtrack to the first Video ROMA I recorded for the good folks who support the podcast via my new web site. I found the experience to be surprisingly intimate. Talked about the thing I love most yet know the least about, and the ways I keep the darkness at bay. For as little as $2/month, you get a monthly video ROMA, access to all the podcast-related ebooks (so far, Tangentially Reading, and Tangentially Talking Drugs — Tangentially Talking Sex coming soon). I decided to make this one available to everyone. I’ll keep doing occasional ROMAs on this open platform, but not as often.

Find me on Instagram or Twitter.

    chriS we hear u got perturbed by patreon. Censoring seems 2 b the issue.
    Ur show iz. Who exacts the force, who’s sensing and seizing up ur ring ?
    Some algo,,, pateron is a wanna b tech company. If u feel like u in d know.
    Help them figure out a better algo. Shall we branch out from the complainers ?
    the source. Meta data, And c what common complaint they come on with. Note?)>
    We figure out censoring parameters,
    we help the machine. = bttr prrmter. btter sense ring.
    Another algo, the music u TALK UP.
    who else ever hear of it, and what would they censor.
    U C Chris, that algo would correlate “allowed” and “preferred” “vicinity vibrations.”
    Thts quite the helping hand u could b ,,, ContaCt patreon. Hw do u feel ? Sort it out.

    Should there be a video recording of this episode? Can’t find it. Why there is a “Video” name in the title?

    Hey Chris,

    Have you read this?

    Abstract
    Greenland ice-core records provide an exceptionally clear picture of many aspects of abrupt climate changes, and particularly of those associated with the Younger Dryas event, as reviewed here. Well-preserved annual layers can be counted confidently, with only ≈1% errors for the age of the end of the Younger Dryas ≈11,500 years before present. Ice-flow corrections allow reconstruction of snow accumulation rates over tens of thousands of years with little additional uncertainty. Glaciochemical and particulate data record atmospheric-loading changes with little uncertainty introduced by changes in snow accumulation. Confident paleothermometry is provided by site-specific calibrations using ice-isotopic ratios, borehole temperatures, and gas-isotopic ratios. Near-simultaneous changes in ice-core paleoclimatic indicators of local, regional, and more-widespread climate conditions demonstrate that much of the Earth experienced abrupt climate changes synchronous with Greenland within thirty years or less. Post-Younger Dryas changes have not duplicated the size, extent and rapidity of these paleoclimatic changes.

    Maybe we’re not that fucked
