Constants and variables as usual
Savile Broadcasting ran a brief feature this morning with Satan "Roger Harrabin" spewing venom from India.
Satan "Harrabin" says that things called Glassy Aws
in the Himalayas are melting faster than ever now. From the context I think he means glaciers
, but I won't make any unwarranted assumptions.
According to Satan "Harrabin", these Glassy Aws
are melting faster than ever because Indians cook with primitive stoves that burn wood or kerosene or dung.
Constants and variables, fuckhead.
Everyone everywhere cooked with wood or coal or kerosene, until just 50 years ago. Some
parts of the world have shifted to natural gas or electricity, eliminating much of the soot
that formerly filled the air. Those richer parts of the world are variables
, while Indian peasants are constants.
If these Glassy Aw
things are melting faster in the last 50 years, which is a variable
, you should be looking at variable causes in the last 50 years
instead of constant causes
Of course Satan "Harrabin" won't understand this point because he is a Satan, not a scientist.
