Read of the day

For some time now I have talked about market solutions to the ‘environmental problem’– read Kipchoge Spencer’s (of Xtracycle and Worldbike) interview at Grist, discussing a real world for-the-environment and for-profit approach. The Rocky Mountain Institute is also an interesting read.PS: I apparently had been nominated for the Indibloggies….Check out the other blogs on the list, they make lovely reading. By the way, I didn’t know I have a popular tagline! 😀

PPS: I should probably say a couple of lines on my tagline. So here goes: “Ubi Dubium Ibi Libertas”- mean where there is doubt there is freedom. The bit that says ‘Welcome to the world of the skeptic’ is an addition courtesy moi.

The idea of doubt and freedom goes back to Descartes and ‘Cogito Erogo Sum ‘or I think therefore I am. As you have probably garnered by now I love philosophy (and study it), contrary to the tagline– I am not merely a skeptic, but yes as a contrarian I am very skeptical about most things. 😀

By the way thanks to Debashish for the bloggies which are a great idea.

Cheers!

One thought on “Read of the day

  1. A man is trying to understand the nature of God and asked him: “God, how long is a million years to you?”

    God answered: “A million years is like a minute.”

    Then the man asked: “God, how much is a million dollars to you?” And God replied: “A million dollars is like a penny.”

    Finally the man asked: “God, could you give me a penny?” And God says: “In a minute.”
