D., was coincident with the lowest ebb of European culture. While the Muslims enjoyed general standards of living equal to if not surpassing those of the preceding Graeco-Roman civilization, the Europeans were living in the semi-barbarous squalor and restricted regime of feudalism -- a pattern unalleviated by comforts and luxuries. These centuries of European history have aptly been termed the Dark Ages Empire of Love: Histories of France and the Pacific. He is exquisitely absurd.'' I recognized the phrase. Mother and son talked of each other in identical terms. But perhaps ``exquisitely absurd'' was the Blunt family saying?

The servant is always under the influence of the suggestions of his master. The wife is under the influence of the suggestions of her husband America: A Family Matter (1922). Neo-conservatives advocating the preservation and expansion of Pax Americana and neoliberals interested in securing global market share for US and EU-based multinational corporations realize the gradual decline of the West amid the ascendancy of East Asia. In 1918 Oswald Spengler warned about the decline of the Western World Golden Age of Homespun. This civilization, moreover, was itself changing and unstable at that time, and was, in fact, involved in a desperate struggle and crisis. The modern historian cannot escape antinomy in his interpretation of this early Christian epoch, and one cannot expect more coherence in the interpretation given by the contemporaries. It is obvious that this Hellenistic civilization was in a certain sense ripe or prepared for "conversion," and can even be regarded itself, again in a certain sense, as a kind of the Praeparatio Evangelica, and the contemporaries were aware of this situation Economy and Society in Northern Babylonia (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta).

Cultures of Empire: A reader. But once the GOE reached the level where eukaryotes could reliably power their respiration aerobically, then virtually all complex life went �all in� with aerobic respiration, and all plants engage in oxygenic photosynthesis.� The conventional view has long been that the GOE was a microbe holocaust, as most anaerobic microbes died from oxygen damage. �However, there is little evidence for a holocaust.� Today, it looks more like the anaerobes were driven to the margins where oxygen is scarce (underground, and in some anoxic waters such as today�s Black Sea) while aerobes quickly came to dominate the planet. [104] �Once the oxygenic photosynthesis and aerobic respiration regime was achieved around two bya, the cycle of photosynthesizers creating oxygen and aerobes eating it began.� Atmospheric carbon dioxide and oxygen levels have seesawed ever since the beginning of the eon of complex life and probably earlier.� For instance, the coal beds that humanity is mining and burning with such abandon today were created because trees produced lignin that allowed them to grow tall, and it took about 100 million years for a fungus to learn how to break lignin down, and like the other big events, that trick was probably only learned once .� Consequently, carbon got buried with those trees in immense amounts and eventually formed most of Earth�s coal beds .� That time is known as the Carboniferous Period, and all of that carbon sequestered in Earth led to skyrocketing oxygen levels, the highest that Earth has yet seen.� Over the billions of years since oxygenic respiration began, aerobes have consumed 99.99% of all the oxygen created by oxygenic photosynthesis.� That remaining 0.01% was buried into Earth�s crust and is responsible for the generally declining atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.� It has been estimated that there is 26,000 times more organic carbon buried in Earth�s crust than exists in today�s biosphere. [105] The times between 1.8 bya and 800 mya are called � the boring billion years � in scientific circles, because there were no dramatic evolutionary events that left a fossil record, and it was likely because the oceans were largely anoxic and rich in hydrogen sulfide, which prevented eukaryotes from attaining dominance. [106] � It is also speculated that a shortage of molybdenum, which bacteria use to fix nitrogen, may have contributed The New Era: American Thought and Culture in the 1920s.

A care ful estimate as of 2013 determined that humanity has reduced Earth�s plant-based biomass by more than a third since the beginnings of agriculture. [780] � Humanity certainly could not have industrialized by using wood.� Arguments making the case that deforestation was not why coal was adopted in England are shaky and also irrelevant to the fact that England could not have industrialized with wood.� Iron operations regularly shut down during England�s early industrial history due to wood shortages.� The economics of coal were evident to even imperial Romans, but nobody would use coal if they could avoid it.� Some ironworking operations used wood until the late 19th century.� But using sunlight energy captured during the tree�s life could not compete for long with mining ancient sunlight trapped in coal that was collected over tens of millions of years, even if nobody initially knew how coal was formed.� Even today, the British Isles� grassy hills provide austere evidence of the rampant deforestation that those lands have yet to recover from. �That the British Isles have any woods at all is a testament to using fossil fuels to power the Industrial Revolution The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer [Audiobook, MP3 Audio, Unabridged].
