I seem to be taking my time writing Part III of Adventures In Flatland.
And why shouldn't I, given the extraordinary impact of the first two essays?
My subject in the first half of Part III is human bullshit. It's a subject which, not surprisingly, has not received the attention it deserves. You can think of bullshit as the opposite side of the filtering coin I discussed in the original essay.
Here's a teaser for Part III, just a taste, because I don't know when I might consider the last essay finished. I think you'll find this entertaining as a stand-alone post.

There has been a push by climate activists to get the world's political leaders to act on the worsening climate problem. That effort included a massive "protest" march which took place in New York City on September 21, 2014. I offered a Flatland perspective on climate change risk in Part II, so I will skip those details.
