An English Stick Figure Explains Climate Change

Here is a nice brief video on climate change, explaining many of the basics in an accessible and appropriately dramatic way.

Dude I'm totally famous now! Thanks for the props.

In the interest of full disclosure -- here is how I got my blog name.

Approximately 12 years ago I heard about this cool little art installation in L.A. that mimic'd a real museum. It was called the Museum of Jurassic Technology. I loved the idea, read about it here and there, and assumed it went the way of most art installations -- POOF.

I made my blog and adapted the name from that art project oh-so-long-ago. Weeks later, doing vanity search, I found out the Museum project still lives.

I was dumbfounded, sent them multiple emails asking if it was OK to adapt the name, and no response. So, I kept it.

Therefore, I can only attribute such a bitching blog name to a good memory for the bizarre and excellent.

ps: the "word check" below rocks -- POOMAR

Bpaul, "POOMAR" -- I love it! It needs to be converted into a real word somehow.

De nada on the rest. I do love the name of your blog, and I hope they don't change their minds and start sending nasty lawyers after you.

I love names and titles of things. I'm a sucker for a good name for a book, blog, blog post, song, album, movie, poem, etc.
