The Fingerprints of Victims Matter

Fingerprints of Victims?
Something someone says can trigger an epiphany in us from time to time.

Regular commenter Randy did so recently here.

He pointed out the concept that the "golden 23" are not as important as the "golden victims," as it were.

In other words, the sea ports in the cross hairs of the marching armies of Greenland and Antarctica are what we need to know about (Weekend Rebel Science Excursion - 44).

It is like the series "Person of Interest" where the principals in that series are mostly interested in protecting those who are targeted (those "whose number is up") for death, avoiding the perpetrators of that pending death, if possible.
"Two if by sea"

Regular readers who know, and who will listen or hear, understand that a warning is worth something.

At least in the sense that they will have a chance to not be caught off guard when their local sea port is damaged or destroyed by the invasion (Greenland & Antarctica Invade The United States, 2, 3, 4).

Sea level change (SLC) is the non-intuitive case where fingerprinting the victims is more important than fingerprinting the perpetrators (if we were fingerprinting the epiPerpetrators, the epiGovernment, the real invaders, we would be arresting Oil-Qaeda, not Greenland or Antarctica).

That epiphany changed the direction of the current SLC software model, so that, rather than fingerprinting "the patsy," we are going to change the spirit of it into a software model for the sole benefit of the victims.

Continue to have a good weekend everyone.

I am.

We need more carpenters ...
