…”And apparently ~30% of all industrial carbon emissions are produced by just 20 corporations, and 100 account for 71%. “
. I wonder where destroying the rainforests fits into the equation.
. And apparently plankton in the oceans is also responsible for making the atmosphere, tolerable. And they are being both heated and acidified.
. Of course these effects are related to the carbon emissions, but cutting down the rainforests for beef, palm oil, & development, etc. is a separate and parallel, path of destruction.
. The US seems to have almost continually been involved in major wars, from some point in the 1960s to the present, say roughly half a century. I wonder what percent of carbon emissions, could be accounted for by these follies.
. There was all the fuel burnt to get supplies & men there, and some back, ( & Vietnam etc are all far away); and then the cost of operations there in terms of fuel spent; and then there was the cost in electricity and fossils fuel used to manufacture all the weapons, bombs, missiles, agent orange, etc.
. Plus all the energy spent on logistic support for a half century of war back in the US. To say nothing of Regan’s & Bush senior’s illegal ‘activities’ in Central America. And to say nothing of what are said to be about 600-800 permanent US military bases around the world - there is a reason for military budgets being ‘black’ or secret.
. And a side effect is to scare and antagonize other countries into also focusing on war, militarization, & weapons development, all also with associated costs to the planetary environment.
. My dietary preferences are due to health concerns and habit, & not morality. Hardly seems like guilt over grilling some burgers is called for.
