So I’ve gotten a bunch of asks and tweets asking me whether or not we should be worried about the impending explosion of the largest volcano on Earth (which I happen to live very nearby). No, you should not.
This latest round of speculation was sparked by a YouTube video…yes, literally a single…

I made a thing about The Wizard of Oz, and monetary policy, and the American West, and the problem of context. I made a thing about a lot of things.
“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” brings science to TV in glorious fashion, even if Neil deGrasse Tyson and the show mess up the history a little.
While I like the new ‘Cosmos’ with Neil deGrasse Tyson, I was really disappointed in the sloppy history in the episode with respect to Giordano Bruno. You can’t misrepresent history just to provoke this tired narrative that the Catholic church and the inquisition were all about repressing scientists. It’s a total misrepresentation of what actually happened, and it weakens the real history and science in the episode.
"The tradition of cinema is dominated by films about good versus evil, ‘good guys’ fighting ‘bad guys.’ But good guys and bad guys only exist in stories. In reality, every act of evil in history has been committed by human beings like us. When we make the leap from ‘a human being who commits evil’ to ‘an evil human being,’ we denounce an entire life, a whole person. I think we take pleasure in denouncing people. Perhaps because, in doing so, in feeling entitled to make the denunciation, we reassure ourselves that we are different, that we are good. In The Act of Killing, I ask you to see a part of yourself in Anwar, a man who has killed perhaps 1,000 people.”
