CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

I filmed this chaotic scene in Hanoi, Vietnam recently. Watch the guy in the tank top (far right) cross through without a hitch.

This is brilliant.

The report claims the eruption could strand 10 million travelers.

For all the travelers out there: Virgin crushes the safety video.

Rare shelf cloud in Belgium to blow your mind.

Skeptical…

Do this if you are young. Travel. Take calculated risks. And document it for your future family. I think I’m too old now to ride a motorcycle from the US to Argentina, though I dreamed about it for many years. It is a minor regret…

From the rider:

Alaska to Argentina in 500 Days, the sights and roads of a motorcycle journey, a one man video documentary of the craziest, most beautiful and intense roads the Western World has to offer.

If you travel a lot, then you know how rare these kind of seats are. No arm rests, new cushions, AND clean? Almost makes me want to enjoy this 3hr delay at Philly Intl…

I ate at a robot restaurant in MSP Int’l Airport. Each seat has one of these tablets (not sure the brand). And each seat has two electric outlets including two for a USB. You can see the USB ports on the outlet on the left. The wood is fake, so are the leather seats. TV screens hung from nearly every wall surface. I’m not sure if you can see it, but can you see the steam behind the counter? I can’t be 100% sure, but I’d swear it was artificial, like that fake smoke at clubs. Even the battery operated candle had a fake flicker.

To order food and drinks, you swipe and poke at the tablet, which, btw, also has full internet access. After you order, you pay by swiping your credit card on a swiper nearby (out of frame).

About five minutes later a server delivers your order, which looks nearly identical(!) to the meal in the photos. Eerie. If you need something, there is red “Assistance” button on the bottom right of the tablet (you can see it on the tablet above). Push that, and someone comes over and asks “How may I assist you?”

All the diners had forks in one hand while swiping news or email on the tablet with the other. The place was spookily silent. Everyone’s heads were down, focused on the screens, and shoveling food in their mouths, as if sedated.

We live in the future.
