Sometimes I think that I do some good that never gets formally associated with me.
Mind you I didn’t come up with the facts of the matter, just the way of presenting them. The shrinking planet graphic seems to draw upon that. I’d have liked it better if they explained the analogy a bit and emphasized how very small your planetoid really is getting to be. Still I am glad the Beeb ran this image and I urge you to think about it.
Though I’ll confess that the vertical axis on the third graph is perhaps overprecise, the rest of the article should be part of any thinking person’s world view too.
