I read Made to Stick a week or so ago. Among other things it made the case that the Great Wall of China isn't the only thing you can see from space. Simple logic suggests that if you could see a relatively thin wall in China from space you'd certainly be able to see southern California's love fest with concrete (as seen in our ten lane highways going hither and beyond).

Turns out you can also see from space how much we've screwed up the ocean floor. Check this article out. It offers yet another indicator of how out of control things are. Let's just restate that...

The destruction we've done to the ocean floor can be seen from space.

The destruction we've done to the ocean floor can be seen from... space.
