Global Dimming

Here's a scary BBC film to watch. It takes 49 minutes. There's also a full transcript attached. I wasn't aware of this particular phenomenon. In a similar vein, I saw a brief news article recently in which Stephen Hawking was quoted as saying that we (Earthlings) need to be seriously working on colonizing a new planet to ensure the survival of our species. He said that it could ultimately take as few as six years for us to reach a distant star, but that it wouldn't "seem" like that long. Hmmmmm.

I saw this Hawking article as well. It sounds like he's even volunteering to be on the first spaceship out.
