In the loop August 28: Google, Brexit lobby and Uber's expansion by POLITICO Europe
[My take, for EU to thrive, it needs 2 develop & integrate further the 6 killer apps of western nations history, but they dont do that. quite the opposite especially under pressure situations (refugee crisis response: bit.ly/1KkArk5 Merkel 'this is EU wide problem, not just Germanys') & that is very much something that speaks 4 Brexit as UK has 2 give up further powers & further struggle 2 be just a prosthetics (not even appendage like science can grow an ear on someones arm) 2 Europe, which gives other countries internal nationalism leverage 2 put barriers in way of really putting Europe on the map of the "world economy," developing/advancing the 6 killer apps 4 Europe. Brexit will be part of Merkel's legacy! Verwalten of status quo. No principles. No vision. No mission. No future.] bit.ly/1FW3Qgi // European integration itself is a Moonshot project & it looks like that crisis management leading to political crisis, doesnt help at all putting the rocket together in the first place.

The Truth About The Global Warming Pause - YouTube
ocean as energy storage (heat), catches and releases it with time delay. changing trade winds (thus also changing jet stream positioning?), increases them when ocean releases energy. [...] new models suggest that we are standing before another energy release from (pacific) ocean and thus a pop in temperatures after +decade of pause from rising air temperature. [ science can only observe and measure what is measurable. we can not run tests based on our assumptions and past experiences on our climate. we can only test with limited/basic climate models in computers based on the complexity scientists have unearthed by observing (putting the complex puzzle together, one item at a time) ] // climate gate - bit.ly/1eUJwRO &! bit.ly/1GIAYHI &!

Stanford biologist warns of early stages of Earth's 6th mass extinction event
In a new review of scientific literature and analysis of data published in Science, an international team of scientists cautions that the loss and decline of animals is contributing to what appears to be the early days of the planet's sixth mass biological extinction event. [...] And while previous extinctions have been driven by natural planetary transformations or catastrophic asteroid strikes, the current die-off can be associated to human activity, a situation that the lead author Rodolfo Dirzo, a professor of biology at Stanford, designates an era of "Anthropocene defaunation." // Book http://bit.ly/M47bEd "our own downfall at our own hands. Domino's are falling." - Guardian Series: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/series/sixth-extinction || http://bit.ly/1jzy1Ol Naomi Klein: This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate
