At todays 420 ppm CO2 level, the sea level is already set to rise by +10m or more, as it was 4 mio years ago

You wonder if we should regulate the burning of fossil fuels? The CO2 level of 420 ppm in the year 2021 is a problem – the last time it was that high was 4 million years ago. Geologic record shows the sea was 10 to 20 meters higher than today, in 2021. It just takes time for the ice to melt and the water to warm up and expand.

The black cat in the black room.

Inspired by the image below.

Theology is like being in a dark room searching for the warmth of a black cat that you sometimes feel and that makes you happy. Reading articles of witnesses who where in the room when it was light and described the cat as clearly visible and their experiments and results with the black cat. As the articles are 2000 years old, they are disputed. Replicating the experiments is disputed as the black cat is described as physically gone, but it’s warm pelt can still be felt after 2000 years. You like the warm sensation and based on the 2000 year old witness accounts, you try to get the warm feeling. Note that the black cat said that “people should care for each other”. The warmth you feel may come from other people you cuddle to, who also look for the black cat. Or from the ghost of the black cat. You turn on the light and cuddling and friendship remain.

That’s how I experienced it when I was looking for a warm feeling. I still feel it. I believe the teachings of the black cat, whom I refer to as Jesus, help me and others to stick together and feel it, too. So the warmth of the black cat can be replicated without the black cat being touchable.

The Happy Newspaper” is a medium dedicated to positive news created by Emily Coxhead. I am subscribed to the newsletter in the spirit of the teachings about news by late Hans Rosling, who educated me and many others about media bias.

Other news sources quote the elephant population in Kenya has doubled in the last 30 years (BBC, 2020-08-14).

Collaborative Blokus

Collaborative games are so much more fun than competitive. Less quarreling and fighting. More caring about the input of others, learning collaboration. So Ingrid and me turned blokus into a collaborative game

  • Rules are the same as normal Blokus
  • Goal is to play all stones
  • Collaboration is freely defineable
  • If you are two players, each player plays two color
  • Picking stones of other player is allowed if other player gives consent
  • Rearranging, undo are allowed
