    Broiler chicken farmers make way more money that anyone admits:

    Farmers in general make more money than non-farming Americans & have since the mid-90s: (Translate: yes, working-class farmers exist, and they’re still a lot better off than their non-farming working class peers. Meanwhile white-collar farmers, who also exist, are doing quite well.)

    The USDA does a farm census every 10 years or so; the 1920 one gets referenced the most often bc it was the high-water mark for number of farmers in the US. (Which folks take to mean it’s “normal” except it wasn’t- farmer numbers were artificially inflated by super high food prices during World War I driving a lot of speculative investment & one last gasp of homesteading in places where there’s no way it…

  2. Afl. 47: Jos Cozijnsen (Climate Neutral Group): “De verstandigste CO2-heffing is geen CO2-heffing.”

    Nu de discussie over een extra CO2-heffing voor de industrie de verhoudingen in de politiek steeds meer op scherp zet, is het hoog tijd om feiten van fictie te scheiden: is zo’n heffing wel of geen goed idee en zo ja, hoe zou die er dan uit moeten zien? Oftewel hoe kan Nederland op een slimme, maar vooral betaalbare manier de reductiedoelen halen? Ik bespreek het met CO2- en ETS-specialist Jos Cozijnsen van de Climate Neutral Group.

  10. James Gleick: Time Travel - The Long Now

    Time travel is time research

    Gleick began with H.G. Wells’s 1895 book The Time Machine, which created the idea of time travel.

    It soon became a hugely popular genre that shows no sign of abating more than a century later.

    “Science fiction is a way of working out ideas,” Gleick said.

    Wells thought of himself as a futurist, and like many at the end of the 19th century he was riveted by the idea of progress, so his fictional traveler headed toward the far future.

    Other authors soon explored travel to the past and countless paradoxes ranging from squashed butterflies that change later elections to advising one’s younger self.

    Gleick invited audience members to query themselves: If you could travel in time, would you go to the future or to the past?

    When exactly, and where exactly?

    And why.

    And what is your second choice?

    (Try it, reader.)

    “We’re still trying to figure out what time is,” Gleick said.

    Time travel stories apparently help us.

    The inventor of the time machine in Wells’s book explains archly that time is merely a fourth dimension.

    Ten years later in 1905 Albert Einstein made that statement real.

    In 1941 Jorge Luis Borges wrote the celebrated short story, “The Garden of Forking Paths.”

    In 1955 physicist Hugh Everett introduced the quantum-based idea of forking universes, which itself has become a staple of science fiction.

    “Time,” Richard Feynman once joked, “is what happens when nothing else happens.”

    Gleick suggests, “Things change, and time is how we keep track.”

    Virginia Woolf wrote, “What more terrifying revelation can there be than that it is the present moment?

    That we survive the shock at all is only possible because the past shelters us on one side, the future on another.”

    To answer the last question of the evening, about how his views about time changed during the course of writing Time Travel, Gleick said:

    I thought I would conclude that the main thing to understand is: Enjoy the present.

    Don’t waste your brain cells agonizing about lost opportunities or worrying about what the future will bring.

    As I was working on the book I suddenly realized that that’s terrible advice.

    A potted plant lives in the now.

    The idea of the ‘long now’ embraces the past and the future and asks us to think about the whole stretch of time.

    That’s what I think time travel is good for.

    That’s what makes us human—the ability to live in the past and live in the future at the same time.
