EVOLUTIONARY CRUX POINT
In this postette, I won't even attempt to do justice to the thoughts I have on the topic. I just want to briefly blog it as being perhaps the most interesting and relevant type of dataset vis-a-vie our species' near-term future.
Hopefully I'll walk myself back onto a degree track where I'll have the financial and professional motivation to do a full and competent analysis on the data. I'd really love to see what can be learned from it and put that knowledge to efficacious sociological use for my country, my peoples and my planet in the decades ahead of us.
Let's not forget, regardless of who holds the reigns steering us into that future, and no matter how many, how young or how old are our numbers on average, the paths that we'll all be navigating are getting warmer, wetter and wilder all the time.
What's the old saw? Think Globally. Act locally.
Think and then act, at any rate.
