SAVE OUR PLANTS, INCREASE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

FEBRUARY 1, 2021 – I have spent my entire life increasing my carbon footprint.  When a friend mentions something like buying an electric vehicle, I get in my 1996 Ford 250 gas hogging truck and just drive around for a few hours to burn as much gas as I can.  For whatever reason, I have always been anti-environment…maybe because the tree huggers have just been so annoying about the issue.  I have long joked that there is lots of room on Mars for humans when we need to go there:)

It is good to finally see some studies come out to support an increase in C02 emissions.  Afterall, plants live on CO2.  Carbon neutral would be the death knell for this planet.  Thankfully, humans will continue to increase their CO2 emissions and save this planet – just as they have for the past 200 years.

Studies project the number of automobiles will increase from 1.2 billion today to 2.5 billion (!) by 2050.  98% use gas and diesel today and it is expected over 90% still will in 2050!  Wow, that is going to be an amazing increase in C02 from vehicles alone.  Add to that increasing online purchases and delivery vehicles will increase exponentially – even more CO2.  I can hear the plants saying yum yum:)

I saw this in a recent Grant’s Observer:

Bloomberg Opinion’s Lionel Laurent shines a light today on the environmental cost that has accompanied the bitcoin boom:  As the digital ducats require increasing computational firepower to process transactions, bitcoin’s current estimated annual carbon footprint of 367 million tons is equivalent to the emissions of New Zealand, while a single bitcoin transaction generates CO2 equivalent to more than 700,000 swipes of a Visa debit card, according to Digiconomist.  Similarly, the crypto’s annual energy consumption stands at about 78 terawatt-hours, up from less than 10 terawatt hours in 2017.   Then, too, bitcoin hunters have utilized global regulatory arbitrage to improve their economics.

That alone should encourage everyone to invest in Bitcoin!  Just think how many jobs are created worldwide to produce this amount of power.  And the profits being made by power plant builders and power companies.  Definitely a win-win for people and plants.  I suppose the 300-500 coal plants under construction and proposed worldwide just sends an environmentalist in to disbelief that his/her plan to kill off plants and humans has zero chance of succeeding.  Nothing like wasting time fighting a fruitless battle:)

I do find it funny that the young generations that are so in to a green economy are the ones that are greatly increasing CO2 emissions thru online retailing and cryptocurrencies.  As they would say, I am SMH.

I encourage everyone to read and pass along Dr. Moore’s, co-founder of Greenpeace (!), study on C02 and more throughout the history of our planet.

Greenpeace Co-Founder Contradicts CO2 Climate Fears

It is neat to imagine a time when humans were thriving when CO2 was over 10x higher than it is today.  As Dr. Moore points out, if we hadn’t started the Industrial Revolution and invented the automobile, it is likely plants and humans would be extinct in the not too distant future.  If the ‘we were wrong about global warming so let’s call it climate change’ people had their way, they would eliminate the lifeblood of plants and lead to the end of the human race.  The evildoers can be stopped by you simply doing your part to increase your carbon footprint.  Please do your part!

Another neat thing to imagine is when humans were thriving in temperatures that were more than 20 degrees Celsius warmer than today.  I suppose we were living all over the planet as there weren’t glaciers and such that were too cold for us to survive in.  To think the scare mongers are worried about a one or two degree increase this century.  From a historical perspective, it will still be very cold.  Brrrrr.

Save a Plant, Increase Your Carbon Footprint!

IT’S HUMAN NATURE – THE SUBURBS WILL ALWAYS RULE

July 3, 2019 – First off, Happy Birthday to our great republic.  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable 4th.

The following article is just one more tidbit of data that proves that the younger generations NEVER moved into the CBDs at any rate greater than prior generations.  Since 2000, the percentage of the population in CBDs has not changed!

As I continue to tell any city planner I see speak at a conference, you best be spending 99% of your money on infrastructure in the suburbs.  It is a waste of money to spend fortunes on downtown parking garages, apartment buildings, trains, etc.  The cost is extremely high and the population using it is insignificant.

City planners simply mislead the public as it is all ABOUT THE MONEY.

Environmentalists mislead the public because it is all ABOUT THE MONEY (e.g. The USA has 17 coal plants….1600 coal plants are under construction and planned in 62 countries…the FNM tells you the use of coal is declining, when in fact it will increase 43% with just these new plants, much less new ones after these).

And vegans make it sound like plant-based food is catching on and is the future for the world.   Again, they are simply AFTER THE MONEY!  Between now and 2050, worldwide meat consumption will increase from 330 million tons to 560 million tons!  Someone please tell PETA to stop wasting all of that donation money they get on trying to make people stop eating meat.

It is sad to see how the masses get used by the Fake News Media that promotes these money-grabbing agendas.  But, as I have always said, thankfully the masses are predictable in this way and that makes it easy for everyone to profit off of them.  I guess that includes me, albeit I am not an unethical, greedy corporation.

You cannot save this planet.  Whatever you do as an individual (not eat meat, walk or bike instead of using your car when possible, buying an electric car [thanx for increasing the need for more coal plants to provide electric for all of these electric cars!], recycle, et al) is not going to help.  Nor is a multitude of Americans and Europeans doing the same thing.  China and India alone will offset any benefits provided by the climate change believers 10-fold over.  My dad had a saying for your efforts, but it is a bit vulgar so I won’t write it out.  Just shake my head about the futile efforts and how legislation continues to price the poor out of housing and automobiles.

In the end, only Mother Earth can save herself.  And she will!  She always has.  Mass extinctions.  Bubonic Plague.  Man might help with World War III and the use of nukes.  But, I believe Mother Earth will unleash a disease that will kill billions before mankind figures out how to stop it.  I won’t be around to see if that happens.  Neither will anyone reading this.  But, down the road our over success as a species will have to be corrected….or we do as I have always proposed as an option – move to Mars:)

Enjoy the suburbs, life is so much more beautiful and relaxing there.
