The Big Stupid Conspiracy

We are conspiring to collapse life on earth, here’s proof:
1. we must reduce emissions 50% in 10 years to stay under 1.5° C.
2. we must reduce emissions 100% in 20 years to stay under 2° C.
3. we still burn wood, there’s never been a 100% energy transition.
4. Europe gets 50% of its renewable energy burning wood from all over the world in giant furnaces. They say it doesn’t count because the trees will grow back in 50 years.
5. 1° C = Dangerous Climate Change

Stupid is as Stupid Does

Low oxygen + high C02 + air pollution = stupid

Air pollution impairs thinking.

https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/air-pollution-linked-to-decline-in-cognitive-performance-64725

A lifetime living with C02 at 426 ppm impairs thinking, likely by 2030.

https://www.skepticalscience.com/how-sapiens-in-the-world-of-high-co2-concentration.html

Low oxygen impairs thinking. Worldwide, oxygen is 21%, but in major urban areas can be as low as 15%. The safe limit for humans is 19-23%. Oxygen levels below 18% impairs thinking. Oxygen levels below 6% no longer sustains life.

Interlude:

Evolution dictates racial superiority, blacks are superior to whites in the tropics and whites are superior to blacks in the Arctic, and Eskimos are superior to both there. Our races evolved to be superior in their environs. That is the whole point of evolution. This is a historic fact, and the fact that genetic variation is greater within each race, does not make race a social construct.

Race doesn’t matter to me, superiority matters. Nobody is superior at absolutely everything. Even our superiors have weaknesses relative to each other. We don’t need the concept of race anymore, but saying race is a social construct is exactly what a social construct is. Superiors must be motivated to help inferiors. The trick is how to sublimate this motive into social good.

This is useful because social media has divorced status from wealth. People want to be famous even more than they want to be rich, unless they’re poor. If superior people collected private open carbon credits the same way they do likes, we would solve the climate mitigation challenge in 10 years.

Net Culture Too Stupid To Live

So far on my discovery of net culture is the crushing realization of how fucked we really are. Priests, scientists, charities, greens, NGO and media have made themselves unfit for purpose.
Examples,
When James Hansen and biologists begged green NGOs to cease opposition to nuclear power, they said no thanks.

When Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein conspired with Barbara Boxer and Bernie Sanders to sponsor a bill to allow government 40% of any private carbon dividends. They did this immediately after a photo op with James in front of the white house.

Michael Mann is a Clinton butt kisser.

Charities and churches are among the worse sadistic sexual predators in history.

Hollywood-MSM is an NRA child trafficking ring.

Liberal media are controlled opposition.

Regulators are captured.

Tech giants are evil blood sucking bastards.

Scientists are the most vain vindictive people on earth.

We burn women and children for good jobs, killing for jews and arabs.

Drug enforcers are the dealers.

Drug companies are the pushers.

Banks are the money launderers.

Politicians are Disaster Capitalists.

The Pope is an orphan pedo.

All for the love of sex and money.

Young people think they can win by fighting.

Conclusion,

Net culture is too stupid to live.

Thank god for exceptions like Hansen, Ozzie Zehner, Peter Carter, Stefan Rahmstorf, Kevin Anderson, Schellnhuber and Wadhams plus some dozen others.

last but not least, the indefatigable Paul Beckwith

We have to reduce emissions 100% in 20 years, but it takes at least 70 years to do so.

We will run out of food, water and soil before we reach 100% renewable energy.

Chemicals will make children sick for generations.
