If Pathologically Ambitious Agent, Vector, or Condition
Catastrophic Consequences of Climate Change (C4)
If C4 …
Let’s say AD 1216. The crooked King Henry III was lobbied by the corporations of his day to clearcut the Sherwood forest. This led to mixing of forest rat and city rat fleas which caused an ecological explosion of Yersinia Pestis bacteria and consequently Bubonic plague surged. Thereby as a consequence of this new disease spilling over from tyrant to rat, flea to bacteria, the people as an afterthought perished.
Now it could be anyone of us returns to our hood, where upon finding such devastation… Who amongst us wouldn’t be so heart broken by the consequences wrought that we decide to stand up for our hood and folks and World for that matter with our best tooling?
Thus I believe we all can make a difference, with whatever our tooling happens to be. In my case it was Epidemiology and so The Epinhood. However, with the coming climate emergency no one will have the luxury of just doing one job anymore, and it is coming. Thus in addition to Epidemiology I am also making it my job to help in whatever way I can to mitigate the coming hazards related to the climate emergencies locally as well as abroad in a more limited capacity, because the fury of the coming decades is going to be what ultimately defines our value to the world and generations to follow.

This blog is dedicated to my transformational leader hero Dr. King (nine of his many mighty words quoted below). The TEH mission is simple. Let no one say of thee that I didn’t try to be a “drum major for justice, peace, and righteousness” too. We all have it in us to strive for advocacy and inquiry in our work. The TEH blog seeks to become evidentiary pursuit of these ideals.
The view was acquired during Cassini’s August 21, 2014, flyby of Titan, also referred to as “T104” by the Cassini team. The view contains real color information, although it is not the natural color the human eye would see. Here, red in the image corresponds to 5.0 microns, green to 2.0 microns, and blue to 1.3 microns. These wavelengths correspond to atmospheric windows through which Titan’s surface is visible. The unaided human eye would see nothing but haze, as in PIA12528. The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The VIMS team is based at the University of Arizona in Tucson. More information about Cassini is available at http://www.nasa.gov/cassini and http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov.
