I apologize for the scarcity of posts lately, life/work/business in general has picked up considerably – which is great because there is nothing that makes me more satisfied than spending fulfilling days 🙂 I promise I have a couple of posts in the works, particularly some regarding my agricultural history class, but they require pretty in-depth research and I’d rather do them properly than half-heartedly – they are coming!
Until then, check out this awesome XKCD What-If post, in which the author of the XKCD webcomics tackles ridiculous hypothetical physics questions. The question this time:
How much CO2 is contained in the world’s stock of bottled fizzy drinks? How much soda would be needed to bring atmospheric CO2 back to preindustrial levels?
The answer: A LOT of soda. Enough to cover the entire Earth’s surface in 10 layers of cans.
Maybe not the most practical solution to prevent global warming.
