Rising sea levels are going to mess with the internet

How much ocean water displacement is taking place in Hawaii as a result of
eruptions?  How about volcanoes we don't know about deep in the ocean?

In the last 5 years, California governments have played a negative roll in
the burning of well over a million acres. These carbon emissions are
rarely calculated and considered as a cause of global warming. How many
California miles driven in cars = one 250,000 acre fire? I don't know.

Did you know there are adults in California that don't think burning trees
emit carbon emissions that count unless it happens in a man made fireplace
? Yes, most of those people went to high school in California.

But anyways - can we please drop the non-internet related discussions from
filling my nanog filtered technical email folders?

Lots of smart people to have discussions with in nanog...maybe we create a
list called nanog-other-stuff at nanog.org

Thank You
Bob Evans
