In the future, miniature silicon devices called nanomedibots can be injected into the bloodstream. They will be able to attach themselves to cancerous cells, then near infrared light will pass through healthy tissue and cause the nanomedibots to heat up, destroying the cancer cells.
mightguy15:Thanks for that info, the details were a bit of a mystery to me and this comment really helped to clear things up. whats your opnion on this? Do you think its possible everyone will get thier act together, or should we start kissing the earth as we know it goodbye?
What I previously described is called the "Methane Feedback Loop". There is also an "Albedo Feedback Loop" where as the icecaps diminish, the Earth loses the white reflectivity of snow and ice and absorbs more heat from the Sun.
People become concerned about things that they can see happening around them, but are less concerned about events they only hear or read about. The problem with that is that these events are taking place in polar regions where there are few people. So unfortunately things are going the have to get worse to the point where the whole world can see for themselves that there is something going on. The question is, will we "wake up" in time to fix it.
What we can do is seek out the facts for ourselves. This IS NOT an exact science so DO NOT use absolutes. Climate alarmists like Al Gore who predicted the ice caps would melt by 2014 or this article that predicts we have 12 years, do nothing but add doubt when they don't come true and actually do more harm than help.
The tundra makes up about 20% of the Earth's surface. Within the permafrost is about 1400 gigatons of frozen carbons like Carbon Dioxide CO2 and Methane CH4. Currently there is about 850 gigatons of carbon in our atmosphere. It is hard to determine how much of these carbons would end up in the atmosphere if the permafrost melted. Estimates are 100 - 200 gigatons which would cause up to 0.5°C (up to 0.9°F) extra warming. This event is considered "the point of no return" because it would cause a domino effect, warming the permafrost and releasing more carbons.
When will this happen? Most estimates predict that it will start no sooner than sometime around 2040 and be completely melted by 2100 but would continue to release carbon into the atmosphere until 2200. There are so many variables in trying to calculate the melt down that it is not an exact science.
We have a little more time than 12 years to fix this, but not much. We have to figure out a solution now, but the problem is that it is a global issue.
1. Deforestation - Malaysia, Paraguay, Indonesia, Guatemala, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Finland, Sweden, Portugal, and Laos are the countries with highest deforestation rate in the world. Deforestation not only eliminates the Earth's ability to absorb carbons but also accounts for up to 20 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. There is currently no legally binding agreements to stop this.
2. Carbon dioxide emissions - China at over 10 mil kt is responsible for almost a third of the world's emissions, and over twice as much as the U.S. The Paris Climate Agreement did not have China to take any steps of compliance until 2030 and after 2030 it would allow them to continue polluting for another 20 years until they got the the rate where the U.S. is now.
I would have to disagree with most on this, at least from my experience. CF is probably the best hosting site but you don't get very much traffic from it. Here's some of my recent traffic data and you can see that almost all comes from Top Webcomics, and CF isn't even in the top 10.
I pretty much do whatever I feel like in my comic including NSFW and instead of holding that out for Patreon only, I do something entirely different for them. I do mostly short story comics for my Patreon supporters. I also do world building info pages, calendars, pin-ups, and wallpapers.
Most of the wasps here are mud daubers that are non-aggressive and don't sting you. Instead, their unique skill in douchebaggery is to build mud nests all over your house. The only way to remove them is to pressure wash them off, then it takes the paint with it. So you end up having to paint your house every other year. Yes, all wasps MUST DIE!
I've been 3d modeling for a long time and character modeling is the last thing you learn because it is very advanced procedures. If you're planning it as a static model that doesn't move it's a bit easier. But if you need it to be poseable then you have your work cut out for you.
edit: If you use a pre-built character like this one and morph it to look like what you want you can do this project much much easier:
