    1. it wasn’t until the 1960s that authors would begin addressing themes of human-caused environmental degradation in their works of fiction. Climate change wouldn’t enter the scene for another few decades.


    2. The idea that Earth’s environment might be different in the future predates understanding of modern human impacts. H.G. Wells was already dreaming up future Earth environments by the time he wrote The Time Machine in 1895.

    1. obscure birth into undue distinction

      Sir Walter bases peoples worth on their lineage, not their actions or character - he mocks Lord St Ives for his father being a poor curate like this somehow makes him less of a person. Titles aren't worth anything to him if they are earned. Which is funny because Baronet is a title that could be bought or "earned" (gifted for performing some duty for royalty), it is the lowest ranked title that can be inherited. For all his airs Sir Walter isn't even part of the nobility.

    1. Carl T. Bergstrom. (2021, May 27). An update on the B.1.617.2 lineage. I’m concerned. Not because of reduced vaccine efficacy, but simply because a further increase in transmissibility above B.1.1.7 would be quite bad news for countries where vaccination is low and for hopes of near-elimination everywhere.

    1. Smoke uses read- and write-efficient index structures based on row ids to capture lineage information. 1-N relationships (between input and output tuples) are represented as inverted indexes. The index’s ith entry corresponds to the ith output group, and points to a row id array containing the ids of all input records that belong to the group.
    2. We have the usual space/time trade-offs to consider. We can slow down the base query in order to capture lineage information during query execution (and store that information somewhere). This speeds up answering lineage queries later on. Or we can keep base queries fast and lazily materialize lineage information later when lineage queries are asked (making them slower).
    3. Data lineage connects the input and output data items of a computation. Given a set of output records, a backward lineage query selects a subset of the output records and asks “which input records contributed to these results?” A forward lineage query selects a subset of the input records and asks, “which output records depend on these inputs?”. Lineage-enabled systems capture record-level relationships throughout a workflow and support lineage queries.
