Here's how I'm spinning Climatology at the Pauling House
(where a lot of us congregate, including Cal Tech alums):

To those who couldn't make it yesterday, I highly recommend
poking around in this picture pile for the Jon Bunce sculpture
of some n-dimensional shape reduced to 3D by Sherpa Design,
milled in "urethane" so ultra-dense that Steve Mastin was
amazed.

I had a good meeting with systems science students in
the PSU program, exploring my latest views about climate
change (already discussed here), to wit:

We could all be watching the temperature gauge while,
meanwhile, particulate plastics in the ocean are clogging
the food chain and we flush ourselves down the toilet
by strangling in our own trash, poetic justice and all
that (not everyone equally guilty, so some final judgment
day planned). I.e. just focusing on global temperature
(e.g. "warming") is like a pilot flying blind just staring at
one instrument, never mind about those silly mountains.
