A few complained when i suggested that the world's economic output shrink in order to shrink humanity's carbon footprint.
It's true that jobs would be lost, maybe as many as half the jobs could be lost, but with job sharing (France does it successfully) people would only have to work half as much. Of course they would have less money to spend but we don't need all those airplanes, SUV's and minivans, and oversized pickup trucks. We don't need all those electronic devices either. And maybe we don't need as much military. There could be treaties to shrink military size as we had to shrink nuclear capability. Maybe we could do it better this time.
Life could be much simpler and easier.

Why not innovate? Why not understand the problem first and then consider solutions? It seems hardly anyone in here accepts the scientific opinion that our stratospheric ozone layer is preventing both crop failure and a break down of the marine ecosystem. That will create a problem much more quickly than CO2 will.
I am in the wrong though for having such an opinion based on scientific research. And in my very ignorant opinion, if we lowered CO2 emissions, then we would see problems that people don't care about like crop failure. It just isn't an issue. People eat today. They don't care if they will eat next year or the year after that.
Fortunately there are countries that will keep releasing CO2 into the atmosphere so the ozone layer will be able to recover. That's if people accept that's what scientists believe. Of course with me, I think I can do better. That's why I've been promoting an experiment that would demonstrate that atmospheric CO2 supports the natural occurrence of ozone in the stratosphere.
And if doctors will let me, I'll operate on myself as well. There's nothing to making an incision and removing a damaged organ that sits on top of all other organs. And to pop a hole in my abdominal wall for my small intestines to exit, local anaesthesia. I would love nothing more than to show all I need is a basic medical procedure that takes no great skill to accomplish. What might actually be the most dangerous part is the anaesthesia itself.
As with atmospheric chemistry, I stand by my opinion on that subject as well.

Please scroll down until you see this;
Importance of the Ozone Layer in the Earth's Atmosphere
The presence of Ozone in the Stratosphere is very essential to life on Earth. Without this protective layer, life on earth would not be feasible.
https://www.eartheclipse.com/environment/location-importance-ozone-layer.html

I'll try to avoid this forum in the future but if it's found out that CO2 directly supports the Chapman cycle, you know, the ozone layer, then that could be because I realized it and made it known to various PhD scientists, ie, doctors.
They don't work with people like me because I'm not smart like them. And with what NASA says about ozone recovery or it's expected recovery, it all ties into regions where CO2 emissions are generated.
I have posted in here about Dr. Guzman who is with the University of Kentucky. The Public Relations and Marketing person with the University of Kentucky presented himself to me as the President of the University of Kentucky.
And if I have the chance to do so, I will make known to Australia that
CO2 + H2O > CH2O, O2
2CH2O > CH4, O2, C.
And that C + 4Cl > CCl4.
This would be a concern to Australia but not to the US. CCl4 migrates to the stratosphere over Antarctica. And that can impact the weather in Australia. And the primary sources of Cl would be the US and the European Union.
That's how I could make friends in Australia. When Australia burns, it might be caused by America and the European Union.
Yet the chemicals we release into the atmosphere have no effect because industrialization doesn't generate toxic waste.

You are speaking literally as a little child would. Life is filled with learning, with teaching, with work, with play, with conflicts, with shortages, with gluts, with war, with peace, with sadness, with happiness, with misery, with satisfaction, and eventually ends with death.

Life has a lot to offer. You are not a child anymore (at least I assume that, since you are writing posts here).

The ozone layer is important, true. Fortunately, all you need to create ozone is sunlight and oxygen.

In the same way one would expect to be mocked for suggesting people stop chewing gum to make a heat wave go away.

You are apparently completely cognitive of the repercussions of your suggestion, i.e. killing the economy, inflicting misery on many millions of people ... and you are perfectly fine with that.

keepit wrote: ... but with job sharing (France does it successfully) people would only have to work half as much.

Yes, people who are out of work would work a lot less. The problem is that productivity plummets, value to society plummets, the economy dies.

keepit wrote: Of course they would have less money to spend but we don't need all those airplanes, SUV's and minivans, and oversized pickup trucks. We don't need all those electronic devices either. And maybe we don't need as much military.

Oooops, you regressed to pretending to declare what others "don't need." Your argument is instantly ignored and summarily dismissed.

Oh, wait, that was the entire basis for your "justification" for destroying the global economy.

I'm sorry, but your Marxist argument is discarded. Do you have anything of substance?

keepit wrote: There could be treaties to shrink military size as we had to shrink nuclear capability.

Marxists hate militaries, they hate guns, and they generally hate any sort of self-defense capability. Rational, reasonable people, on the other hand, respect the ability of self defense.

keepit wrote: Maybe we could do it better this time.

Exactly. The Marxist solution is always to kill off boat loads of other people, e.g. Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Maduro, Shining Path, ... the list is long.

I'll ask you what I ask of all Marxists ... though I have no expectations that I'll get any sort of coherent germane response because Marxists are intellectual cowards and thus I never get a response.

Let's suppose I have a table full of stacks of papers full of research. I bring in a second table so I can divide the research into two categories 1) scientific research and 2) ordinary research. On table A I will place all the scientific research. On table B I will place all the ordinary research that is not scientific research.

I pick up the first page of research and analyze it. How do I objectively determine if the research it contains is "scientific" research or whether it is ordinary research?

James___ wrote: And in my very ignorant opinion, if we lowered CO2 emissions, then we would see problems that people don't care about like crop failure.

Did we have wide-spread crop failures ten years ago when there was less CO2 in the atmosphere than there is today? ... or do you believe crop productivity is tied to the rate of man-made CO2 emission?

Aaaah, industrialization! The Industrial Revolution is when history started. It's when all bad things began to happen. But desperate times bring about our greatest leaders, like my buddy Karl.

I don't really have anything against China, but have never been there, and only know a few people that lived there. China has been there a very long time, long before we came over here, and stole this piece of land. They really aren't doing anything to us, that we haven't been done to them. We take manufacturing work over there, to increase our profits. China wants to increase their profits too. So we thought we were getting cheap labor, dodging regulations, and getting rich. China only found a way to get in on the wealth. It's an entirely different culture, different morals and values. Doesn't mean it's bad, just because they do things differently than we would do it. I do know that they are smart people, and creative. My guess is the past trade agreements left them a lot of wiggle room, and they took advantage. We do that a lot too.

You may not have read Marx, and you may not have even seen his Manifesto, but you are arguing his position all the same.

No, China isn't Nazi Germany. China has murdered far more of their own citizens as dissidents than Nazi Germany ever did. China is also communism, while Germany only played around with the precursor of communism called fascism.

Like Germany, the only information that travels fast is that which is allowed by the government. All other information is suppressed, or at the least overwhelmed by government propaganda ministers.

We've been misinformed many times, and they've gotten caught at it, truth eventually comes out.

Dissidents is sort of a complicated word here, several levels of meaning. Are they just complaining, or are they trying to take over the government? Seems like killing a rebellion, was taken quite literally, in many countries. A simple, long term solution, and sets an example to others who might try.

Truth eventually comes out in China too, but usually at the cost of lives or torture.

Dissidents are in every nation. Here, dissidents are trying to destroy the Constitution. We call them Democrats. In China, they are trying to protect themselves from the threat of torture, capital punishment for saying the wrong thing to the wrong people, the own livelihoods, and each other. The difference in China is the lack of basic human rights.

Yes, we have fascist elements in our country too, but they are NOTHING like what the Chinese have to deal with, due to the outright communism.

Remember, socialism can only exist by stealing wealth. Only capitalism creates wealth.

But Tai Hai Chen assures us that the Chinese government loves and cares for the people unlike the cold, heartless US government that has horrendously lowered income taxes and brutally facilitated record unemployment.

ANTIFA & BLM vs. China's Secret Police. Hmmm, I wonder how they compare side by side.

I submit that it is worse than that. Marxism destroys wealth, and it steals wealth in order to do so. You might not have noticed but Marxism and cancer have an awful lot in common.

Capitalism, on the other hand, adds value, mutually. People become wealthy by providing goods and services that are in demand by others. Win-win.

It's true that jobs would be lost, maybe as many as half the jobs could be lost, but with job sharing (France does it successfully) people would only have to work half as much. Of course they would have less money to spend but we don't need all those airplanes, SUV's and minivans, and oversized pickup trucks. We don't need all those electronic devices either. And maybe we don't need as much military. There could be treaties to shrink military size as we had to shrink nuclear capability. Maybe we could do it better this time.
Life could be much simpler and easier.


I think some solution should be worked out so that one can handle climate change and also improve economies or at least maintain the status quo. For example Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope have suggested it can reduce health problems due to pollution and also create jobs for people. I'm not necessarily in agreement with their opinion, but the idea that the economy can improve during climate change mitigation may be possible.

I don't see the economy improving, under any socialism-leaning democrat plan. Fossil fuels are cheap and plentiful, superior in many ways, over solar panels and windmills. To get people to stop using fossil fuels, you have to tax the crap out of them. Either way, a lot of companies are looking at dumping a lot of cash. Insead of growing and expanding, they are going to have to cut back, to better cover the costs. Some of the cost can be passed on to consumers, but you can only squeeze them so hard, before the stop buying your products. Consumers aren't that loyal, there are always cheap, Chinese imports, that are almost as good. Economy is the movement of money. People have to have jobs, so they have money, to buy goods and services.

Besides the NYC folks stuffing sick people in nursing homes, and stashing dead bodies in U-Haul trucks... People would be a lot healthier, if the eat less convenience, pre-package foods, and spent less time hiding in their basement, afraid they might catch a cold.

Solar panels and windmills take up a lot of acreage, expensive to build, need replaced 12-15 years. Neither product continually, so you need a third alternative, or the means to store electricity (assuming there is even a surplus to store). Batteries, pretty much any chemistry, need replacing, in about 5 years. My planet-killing SUV, is over 17 years old, and should still last a few more years.

Harvey,
If you keep running that 17 year old SUV you'll be helping to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. Producing a replacement vehicle causes a lot of CO2 to be produced.
I agree that the economy isn't going to do well in the near future. It depends on a lot of things, such as the covid and the management of the economy.
They ought to dump money in the economy without moralizing about people making more by being unemployed. The money will trickle up to the rich folks who manufacture or produce things regardless. Less money means less manufacturing and more rioting.
BTW, there could be any amount of event risk, as usual, besides the covid problem.

I think the following quote by John F Kennedy may be of use:

"The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity."

What are the opportunities for more control over the climate, for example? And ofcourse, it leads to cleaner technologies. I think breathing a little better would be something just about anybody would want.

Never really had a car with functioning AC... Plenty of fresh air, with the windows rolled down. This 2003 Explorer doesn't do heat either. There's a diverter gate, under the dash, near the center console, that's stuck or broken. Over $1,000 to get fixed (same as what I paid for the damn thing). Looks like a lot of work to teardown, just to look at it. No defogger was a bitch, but got a bottle of this Fog-X stuff at Walmart. One application, has lasted a few years now. Need to reapply though, just not that many fogged windshield days. Obama did this to me, with his Cash-$-Clunkers crap. Destroyed a lot of decent used vehicles, lot nicer than this POS. Had to settle for anything that still ran. Gas prices were really high back then, so got lucky, to even get this.

Define 'climate change'. Mantra 22b.

How can an undefined word reduce 'health problems'. What 'health problems'? Define them specifically.
andeep wrote:
due to pollution

Define 'pollution'. Just what is it?

There are already a lot of jobs for people that produce nothing and get paid for it. They are called government jobs.

You have to define 'climate change', define 'pollution', define the 'health problems', and define all of them specifically and unambiguously. You could also try to define 'global warming' while you're at it.


No argument presented. Buzzword fallacies. Void argument fallacy.

Printing money without a corresponding increase in wealth cause inflation. You are suggesting hyperinflation as a solution.

"The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger--but recognize the opportunity."

JFK was wrong when he made this statement. A character in Chinese (the Japanese use the same characters with the same meanings here) requires multiple brush strokes. There are two characters involved:
The first means 'danger'. It is a pictograph of a man leaning over the edge of a cliff with a stone at the base, as if the stone has fallen there (The stone is moved inside the cliff for aesthetic reasons now, to give the character balance).
The second character used means 'crucial', in this context, a 'crucial moment'. It is a pictograph of a stalk of rice and the knife used to harvest it...essentially meaning 'moment of harvest'...a 'crucial moment'.

Combining the two characters gives the meaning of a 'dangerous crucial moment', or in other words, a crisis.

A crisis does indeed contain opportunity. The opportunity of decision. Such moments are the decision to either 'cut the rice down' or to 'leave the rice'. A crisis is a point of decision.

The decision we face currently is the choice between liberty or tyranny...between the Constitution or Marxism and rule by mob. Between those that support the Constitution and Liberty or those that support Marxism, tyranny, and the mob, including the mob in government supporting the rioting mobs in the streets.

You already have cleaner technologies. Capitalism created the EGR system, heavily reducing the smog problem. It produced the FADEC system used in cars now, increasing fuel mileage and reducing soot. Computers and systems created and built by people like me clean up the waterways by treating sewage better than before.

You lose this kind of thing under Marxism. Marxist nations like the USSR, Venezuela, China, and Cuba have terrible pollution problems, even utterly destroying large lakes in the process. The soot from poorly engineered coal plants is far worse than any coal plant in the United States. In China, the soot gets so bad you can't even see the city around you because of it. They wear masks not because of Covid19, but because there is so much particulate matter in the air. Masks won't stop a virus, but they will help a lot against these particulates from the soot everywhere.

Do not believe in the Golden White Unicorn that Marxism promises. Marxism is literally hell on Earth. All forms of socialism eventually lead to these kinds of hell.

The Constitution of the United States is government by laws, not by men. It establishes governments to protect everyone's rights, especially the rights of the minority interests, which would disappear under a democracy. It is because of the Constitution that everyone has a right to create their own destiny, not just a privileged few. It is an inspired document. It should be preserved.

Understand this...it is very important. The goal of the Democrats is to utterly destroy the Constitution of the United States and replace it with socialism by oligarchy, with themselves as the 'elite', of course. For everyone else, you will be forced to accept what the 'elite' give you.

No way.

I will fight for the Constitution. I will defend this nation. I will oppose the tyranny the Democrats and other socialists want to impose. If it comes to war, it comes to war. I will not let America go quietly into the night.

My moniker is a warning. If America goes into the night of ignorance and Marxism, it will not go quietly.

I am not alone.

Before Democrats and other socialists start a war, they had best think about that.

Harvey,
Sir, the bitumen from Kentucky is the best in America. It basically has twice the heat capacity of other lesser coal.
The coal from Wyoming is only better because it's cheaper to mine. You know, the Rockies are a "young" mountain chain. That's geologically speaking of course.

Maybe... if you lazy bastards bothered to refine out some of crap that's mixed in with the coal. Face it, you'll scraping the bottom of the barrel. Best keep to making foul tasting, cheap whiskey. What the hell, filter that crap through some of you famous coal?

Don't you mean geographically? The Rockies have been there a long time. Took longer to steal them for the local occupants of the land. the 'Whites' used mainly biological weapons of the indigenous people in the 'yankee' states. Out west, the 'whites' learned that chemical weapons worked quicker, and more reliably, mostly lead-poisoning.

Harvey, once again you show Americans are stupid. Before the current "Rocky Mountains", there was another mountain range there. The "rocky mountains" are young.
I think the person that stalked me online has died. He was like you. His Facebook page has had no new posts in over 1 year. I contacted a reporter who did a story on him and asked about tracheotomy for people like him who have COPD.
https://www.ksla.com/story/37863650/an-arklatex-man-endures-a-series-of-unfortunate-events/
He wanted my life but had no interest in working with me. And HArvey, like you, he was a typical American.
