The Eco-Centric

The Eco-Centric

This is the transcript for the clip I posted on Youtube. To day I want to talk about the Eco-Centric. The Eco-Centric is a statue I created. With it I try to visualize the state of our culture. And it ain’t a nice picture. Humanity has come a long way since our beginnings. Not so long ago, only some thousand years, we were seeking shelter in caves to protect us from nature.* We were vulnerable, but we survived. And where are we now? Now nature has to be protected from us human...

Young and Angry

If I were a young man, I would be really angry with my parents’ and grandparents’ generations. In other words, your peers. “What are you doing to my future?” I would shout at them, the grown-ups; the people in power. You are leaving me a mess. The climate is changing and the world population will grow from the 7.5 billion it stands at today to over 9 billion over the next 30 years with no solution for overpopulation in sight. You might deny climate change but overpopulation is a very...

Changing Culture or Climate

Life is a constant change. Some things have to be accepted, like the seasons of the year or growing old. Consult the I Ging (or Ching), the book of changes (1). Some things can’t be accepted, like the Climate Change. Especially since it is caused by man and could, at least, be mitigated. Some people believe that the Climate Change is part of a natural cycle and that this is therefore not a cause to worry. Nothing can be further from the truth. If the Climate Change is a natural cycle...

On Religion

The Bankruptcy of Religion Religion is not the usual topic of Nesseq.com, but as I wrote last week about Pope Francis I think it is in order to clarify my stance towards religion. I do not reject the idea of a God or divinity as such. As a young physicist once told me the chances, that God exists is fifty-fifty. It is a Either Or situation, either God exists or God does not exist. Of course, God does not have to be as we imagine him. Or her. Perhaps it is a Id, something genderless. There is...

350 ppm – 400 ppm CO2, Who Gives A H**k?

350 ppm – 400 ppm CO2, Who Gives A H**k?

Once upon a time, not so long ago, about 200 years prior, the earth atmosphere contained about 275 parts per million of carbon dioxide(1). Since then it has been rapidly risen. In 1958 the biochemist Charles David Keeling measured, at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, 315 ppm (parts per million)  Carbon Dioxide in the earth atmosphere (2). The Keeling Curve is named after him (3). Since then we have been told, that 350 ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere is the threshold, where the balance...
