    ‘You want to rule the world? Good, then you can solve global warming, the economy, acidification of the oceans…’

    “Supreme Ruler of the Earth” has a nice ring to it, but I suspect it would be a rather hollow title unless I also had some effective way of controlling the seven billion or so humans running around in all directions….

    Acidification is in the same category as sea level rise. Assumed, but not observed in nature since the last ice age melted off.
    .
    When a person works in the field of a science, vs. a university, it is immediately apparent that most university “science” ideas are created without actual input from what one can observe in the field. Data is fitted to the idea or even discarded if the data doesn’t fit the professor’s ideas.
    .
    For example, textbooks state that soil requires hundreds of years to form an inch. Which would not keep up with erosion observed across the planet. For example, 10 to15% of the crust is carbonate rocks and these erode at an average of 1" per year, with greater rates in tropical karst and much lesser rates in deserts.
    .
    Having seen bedrock be broken up and form 8" of soil in 20 years when grass broke up the rock and added organic material, it’s clear the textbooks have it wrong.
    .
    The same with rock. In a 12 year span, I watched granodiorite and basalt have drastic changes, merely from freeze thaw, rain, and snow.
    .
    But the university types still claim millions of years. No rock would last that long. if nothing else, the motions of atoms within the crystals would deform the rock long before then, coming to a state of lowest energy, meaning it would flatten under the load of overburden. Which would also cause fossil bones to go completely flat if they were actually buried for millions of years. Physics won’t be denied merely because someone wants an earth older than it actually is because its their religion.
    .
    There is real science and there is the typical garbage that universities produce to get grants from people with axes to grind. “Science” by the dollar for those who want to “prove” something that is later debunked.
    .
    Given the lack of professionalism in the sciences that became rampant in the last 15 years, most of today’s “science” will be just a much a joke as the idea of phlogiston.

    The sun must have been very strong that day as it seems to have faded his red hoodie to white between panels 2 and 3.

    To Nabu, are you saying the earth is younger than 6000 years old and all scientific data is hokum? We know it’s old enough to have allowed you to type that tome you posted.

    What happened to Dilbert’s hoodie in the third panel? :-)

    What in good god’s name are you going on about…on a site dedicated to comics. You should take your rhetoric some place where there are people more equipped to articulate it. Nevertheless, even as an artist, you come across as a conspiracy theorist to me.

    Speaking of lack of professionalism quote your sources.

    Ruling the world is a lot of hassle and paperwork. It’s better to be the dog behind the throne!

    Good one.

    Dilbert ate the hoodie out of frustration. Dogbert has no idea how difficult it would be to rule the city much less the world.

    Look at the coral reefs. The blanching, the getting coated in purple slime. The death of those polyps. CO2 gets absorbed and dissolved into carbolic acid.

    I started counting the jaw-droppingly absurd statements in the post, but quit when I ran out of fingers less than half-way through.
    .
    Perhaps you’re an autodidact, as Glenn Beck claims to be (“I was homeless, so I went to the library to stay warm, and started reading. I’m self-educated without any help from anyone.” Including, presumably, the citizens who built the library, paid the heating bill, paid the staff salaries, and bought the books he used for free.) If you’re an autodidact, keep trying, you might make it some day.
    .
    On the other hand, if you have a diploma or degree from some place, send it back to the mail-order mill whence it came. You can use this posting as irrefutable evidence for your claim to a refund.

    “the motions of atoms within the crystals would deform the rock long before then, coming to a state of lowest energy, meaning it would flatten under the load of overburden”
    .
    Yep, thanks for reminding me we live on a smooth, featureless billiard ball.
    .
    Sheesh.

    Wouldn’t dumping baking soda into the ocean help stop acidification of the oceans? Sorry if that sounds stupid, it was just an idea.
