EMISSIONS

Clean Power Is Not Enough

  • They say we only have to drop emissions like 70% if we can capture 70% of the budgeted carbon already in the air. Either way the reality is that we have to get to 0% in 20 years or we’re done. Playing make believe with model timelines doesn’t change that. Inequity is built into a system unfit for purpose even under this pixie dust scenario. Scientists bullshit, engineers eat shit. We can’t scale up and have a defense industry too. Seven billion people don’t get a new smartphone every few years. It means less stuff, not more facial recognition toilet paper dispensers for public washrooms in China.

Us Vs. Them

Loose Talk:

There’s a lot of loose talk about turning CO2 into fuels like ethylene and ethanol etc., which can be burned and put back into the air. The energy source for these processes are presumed to be solar and wind. It’s a mental circle jerk. Likely bomb enabling liberals.

There’s also a lot of liberal uprising talk, which is more of the us-them stuff that got us here in the first place. Corporate Dems put a stop to it because they’re war pig trough shills as well. The liberal pig on the left say nothing.
