COV shutdown will tell us a lot about CO2

I just realized - we're seeing clear skies in Chinese and Indian cities, clear water in Venice, etc. The pollution has ramped way down for a quarter -- and we are going to learn a bunch of things! Will the Mauna Loa CO2 graph be affected? This should tell us a lot about how much current CO2 in the atmosphere is man-made and what efforts to curtail it will do.

Yeah, that part of this is pretty interesting. The data could prove useful. Work from home may end up being a thing to watch as well.

Apparently Attila the Hun's conquest killed 40 million people, or 11% of the world's population, and enough to cause a change in the global CO2 level. According to some documentary I was watching on Hulu.

Here it is on Cuomos own site

http://www.governor.ny.gov/news/vide...o-announces-10

Its a stretch but it is kinda suspicious when he talks about "Preperation Drill" -- This was on another site saying this going on now is a drill and it is kinda suspicious reading

...What do we do now? Well, we need to do more testing and more advanced testing and we have to do it faster. That's both the diagnostic testing, that's the anti-body testing. We have to get better at both and we have to be able to create a higher volume faster. We have to be more prepared. We should never go through what we went through on this preparation drill. The federal stimulus bill is going to be key...

It's true that better faster testing is a very potent tool against pandemics, places like Singapore have proven it works.

We should be better prepared, masks, ventilators, capability, public aware of what to do when the news comes. This has been a drill, a learning curve for the future. The obits in yesterdays Boston Globe ran 11 pages.

WTF, every flood, famine, plague is a drill to see what goes wrong, what could have been better preparation to not make the same mistakes in the future. That doesn't make it a conspiracy, it's what smart agencies do.

I said smart, not Federal.
But you're right I'm sure all the agencies go through that post mortem of events, but then politicians come along and kill or at least castrate the agencies.

Well, not more than once.

There's an imperative here that professionally-run agencies observe with some faith -- apart from permanently seeking a larger slice of budget pie on the chart, there is the imperative to get the most bang out of every budget dollar they actually get.

Absolute, law-of-gravity adherence to these isn't going to happen, but the nearer they approach either or both, the better run the agency.
