Global warming now percieved as global ecological tipping



Scientists are seeing yet another level of global change: A "tipping point."

And a news release pointing to a group of scientific papers:

First, I recommend reading the comments associated with the Slashdot post above. The comment-ors on Slashdot typically provide a wonderful parsing of the problem with many voices and viewpoints.

Another dream: I was trying to call my father on the cell phone. The phone number I was trying to dial was the 1950's vintage phone number ANgeles 9-6412. 

The phone kept saying "Check call restrictions."

My dad has been dead for 23 years.

The physical side of my sentiment to "Recharter the San Mateo County Transit District" is I needed to attend Board Meetings, understand the priorities and concerns of the Transit District, its' Transit advisory council and the San Mateo County 1% sales tax transit funding organization.

The physical problem became the cost of driving to attend these meetings. The typical driving distance is 16.5 miles with a 70 minute driving time. Gas costs $4.13/gallon and my car gets 22.7 miles per gallon. A one way trip is $3 in gasoline, double that for operating cost and double that for the round trip cost. The cost of driving to attend one meeting is $12.00.
