When people say they can turn food waste into energy, what they really mean is that they want to steal soil food and burn it. The more circuitously, the better. The more 3rd party supply chain, the better. Turning anything into methane means it just gets burnt.

Carbon Capture = 5 gtons/year 2050

After reducing projected emissions by 700 billion tons in 20 years, we have to suck 10 billion tons of year out of the air forever after to avoid 2° C.

The most optimistic scenario says we can hope to remove 5 billion tons of carbon per year by 2050. This is clearly ineffectual.

We can remove up to 5 gtons/year by 2050.

But, we are putting up to 40 gtons/year now.

We will put up 700 billion tons by 2040.

We have to emit 0 gtons/year by 2040 to avoid 2° C.

2° C = Disaster says James Hansen.

Removing 5 gtons/year by 2050 is not enough.

We have to remove at least 10 gtons/year after 2040 every single year to avoid 2° C.

Asymetrical Bullshit

The real news is that carbon change is destroying the web of life.

https://www.sciencealert.com/here-s-how-climate-change-is-unraveling-the-webs-of-life

The unspoken news is that humans, chickens, pigs, sheep, cows destroyed 80% of species in the last 50 years.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/may/21/human-race-just-001-of-all-life-but-has-destroyed-over-80-of-wild-mammals-study

The fake news today is about California and Ireland’s carbon reductions. It’s just green bullshit, because it doesn’t account for import/export carbon throughputs.

Ireland is a corporate whore. Hollywood and Washington are both NRA child trafficking centers. Neither left or right will help us now.

Carbon will reach over 500 ppm by 2050.

This will set us on track for 8° C by 2100.

This will lock in 2° C by 2035.

We have to reduce **all** emissions in 20 years to survive.

We have to start pulling 10 billion tons/year out of thin air every year after that date, if we figure out how do it. Even if we knew how, we are losing soil at 2X times the rate we need to find new soil to do it.

We are losing trees at 40 football fields per minute to eat meat. We need to double that rate to grow the carbonless energy we need.

This is complete bullshit, like time travel, immortality etc.

Bulshit is not going to save us, it only makes rich folk richer.

If you read the Union of Concerned Scientists’ **Climate Hot Spot** report, you’ll find it tepid at best, offering the usual science-will-save-us bromides. We don’t have the luxury of optimism.

https://www.climatehotmap.org/global-warming-effects/

Many redditors are scientifically oriented. Nobody’s job is holier than anyone else’s job just because you’re smart. A material scientist is every bit as complicit in world destruction as Eric Prince, the christian mercenary.

If high ideals and mindfulness could save, we would all just stop eating meat and wasting food tomorrow. It’s not enough. We need to financialize the carbon economy without government and corporate involvement. Our knowledge economy is now based on **manipulation algos**. We have to remodel the incentive economy. We have to redefine money as 100% private carbon dividends world wide before the robots take all our jobs.

Chat bots can now get higher marks on the General Practitioner Health Exams than humans can. Data insights are now an AI preserve. We don’t even need all the college kids anymore. In fact, we need more bad news bears to manipulate data patterns into a bifurcated economic model, where the rich get richer and poor get poorer.

These economic and climate models are bullshit. Unless you’re blueblood. The only way to unify humanity in a way fit for purpose is by changing all the e-money in the world into 100% private carbon dividends.

I know this makes no more sense to you than sex/race social constructs make to me, but if we don’t talk, we die.

Social constructivism is nice for the first few million refugees, it’s the last few billion that will kill it. Every generation has its conceits.

Cheers, have a great day.

The Black Ribbon Campaign

Opioids now kill more people than breast cancer

  • I smell a Run-For-The-Pill Black Ribbon campaign for expensive big pharma research on over-priced, marginally more effective drug monopolies.

California’s cap and trade benefits go mostly out of state to the rick, hurt the poor at home, and do nothing for the climate.
