🧵 Tonight's SFI Community Lecture by 2x Miller Scholar @Andrea_Wulf begins in just a few minutes!

Follow this thread for the streaming link and highlights from the talk. (Sorry, but this recording will not be available to view afterward...)
Talk starts now with an intro by SFI Prof @C4_Computation:


Q - Flack: "Some of you might wonder how a talk on Humboldt connects to #ComplexityScience."

A - Humboldt: "Knowledge of the chain of connection....the perception of these relations."
Who was #AlexanderVonHumboldt?

"A man who was so restless he said he was chased by 10,000 pigs... He spent his entire inheritance on a five-year voyage of South America. They called him 'The Shakespeare of the Sciences.'"

THREAD: So if you love #fishing and your water, something to consider. I have bald eagles, trumpeter swans, pelicans, herons here on the Lower #Wisconsin #River. Lead kills #birds. I lose probably more than my share of jigs and hanging with the @riveralliancewi got me thinking.
I am more pragmatist than activist, but #environmentalism hits home as you watch eagles soar as you fish pristine, delicate waterways. The 92 miles LWR is mostly in conservancy, and is recognized as a @RamsarConv Wetlands of International Importance. rsis.ramsar.org/ris/2417
So I cultivated a local guy who makes lures out of his garage. Very skilled fisherman too and I have learned a lot from him out on the water. Had him cast me this initial run of jigs out of tin bismuth alloy.

Hey Twitter! It's been a while. I used to write here all the time hanging out with #scifichat, #comicschat, #litchat, talking about #science, #tech, #autism and a dozen other topics which broadened my horizons and let me share my diverse interests in almost everything.
Then my life got incredibly busy. My son went to high school and coupled with his #autism, our lives became super-complex. I lost my job and my car gave up the ghost after four years of @Uber. Then the unthinkable, my wife experienced #renalfailure.
4 years ago, she underwent an operation for #peritoneal #dialysis. This form of at-home dialysis would let her take care of her renal needs at home avoiding the need for external #hemodialysis centers. In hindsight, this may have saved her life.

What does #justice mean on a damaged planet?

Remembering the #Ogoni9, murdered on behalf of @Shell in the Niger Delta, 10 years ago.

And perhaps taking a moment to question the dominant narratives of #climateaction via Ken Saro-Wiwa's daughter, Zina.

@Shell "The idea of ‘big E’ #Environmentalism is shaped by a certain group of thinkers in the #West. It is currently #framed predominantly through the issue of #carbon emissions, at least on an international level...

frieze.com/article/its-ti…
"Rising sea levels and climate change, all desperately important and overlapping issues; but Environmentalism is a #broadchurch. The concerns of big environmental groups don’t necessarily #speak to and for #others in other parts of the #world."

#Socialism and #environmentalism are a perfect match. Socialism can’t result in anything but poverty, misery, and death. Environmentalism says precisely that is what’s necessary to “save the planet.” Thus, environmentalism sets a standard of success that even socialism can pass.
If socialism wins, then a few generations from now, some of our starving descendants, walking among the ruins of capitalist civilization and inspired to try to recreate some of the wonders of the past, will be stopped by environmentalism’s taboos against “harming the planet.”
The planet they will be afraid of “harming” will be one whose remaining inhabited areas are covered by and reek of the stench of human and animal waste, as was the case in the towns and villages of the Dark Ages.
