Craving a Little Perspective? Watch this

Everything Else, Science, Uncategorized Comments (0)

So often the scope and grandeur of natural events get lost in video. Two dimensions and small screens shrink mindbogglingly huge natural phenomena, and the world seems a much more in our control than it ought. I live near Mt. St. Helens. I remember 1980. Video didn’t transmit the devastation well but a trip to Windy Ridge to look at the burnt out car did. Then there are moments like the one about two minutes into this video. A brave and foolhardy man stands on the edge of a boiling lava lake, and for a minute you understand how ridiculously small we are.
