Niklas PivicI wish that people wouldn't turn into consumers so easily, but we all too dearly wish to follow the flood without caring much for consequences before we do. Solipsism must die.
Andreas BatsisWhen electricity made it to the household for the first time, people used to put their fingers in the socket and die. Nowadays we know exactly how to See moreuse electricity.
I believe that the same procedure is gonna take place with internet and smart phones as well in the near future.
The one that I'll give you is this one: Consumerism is a serious problem and it seems to resist for many years now.
Luzius MeisserMy hunch is that we do not only pay too little attention to the effect on plants, but also to the effect of elevated CO2 levels on humans. High CO2 levelsSee more above 2000 ppm are known to cause headaches and concentration problems. Yet, many ecological "Minergie" heating systems prioritize saving energy and keep the air just fresh enough to keep people from complaining. I for one would feel more comfortable if fresh air was the first priority. At schools in particular, I think that would enable students to think faster and more clearly as the can breathe better air.
Luzius MeisserI don’t mind reading long articles if they have a high information density. But I do not want to read lengthy descriptions of individuals. That does notSee more add any value. In fact, it destroys value by diluting the actual information and by giving the whole article a less serious, tabloid style. There’s a good reason real scientific articles start with an abstract that summarizes the whole. Not providing an abstract is just a signal that the author does not value the time of her readers and that the article is more about infotainment than actual knowledge.
JehuI fully support brevity, if it is strengthened by density and accuracy. Regardless of the time it takes the reader to go through the article (not implyingSee more, of course, that it's not important), excessive length is usually a symptom of lack of clarity and delivery strategy, and is certainly not the best way to convey the inherent complexity of the/any subject.
