I haven't come across one rational opinion or discussion on Trump's most recent escapade. Again, as always I don't despise the guy blindly because the media tells me to. Mainly I think he's a putz because of his haircut and obsession with gold plating everything and mostly because COMPLETELY separate from Trump himself. The fact that a reality TV star has been elected into the oval office means that literally nothing matters any more. This country and government are a joke... so whatever stupid shit the media finds to make him look stupid really doesn't matter.
But for the sake of this thread lets just keep it to one topic at a time so we don't end up running around in circles. I can totally get behind dumping the paris climate deal. Its basically a scam like carbon credits, it solves global warming by mainly just taxing people into the stone age... is it going to get us any closer to a fossil free future? No! Industry is supposed to figure that out on its own. All this agreement does is just punish. Shit like this is stupid and I think America has been disenfranchised long enough by shit like that... along with other countries. Yet my issue with Trump like all other career politicians on both sides is there masterful ability inject double-speak and have NOBODY notice. So Trump backs out of the treaty, yay! and then goes on about how he's going to bring back Coal jobs...?? Come on.... someone out there you know personally probably cheered over this...
Listen people, if you haven't noticed yet. History has repeating themes, so study up. Otherwise in a few generations people will call this the Modern Dark Ages. Coal is dead, its like Ferriers after Ford brought the automobile to the masses. Or slaves after the cotton gin... do you see the analogy here? Do I need to spell it out? Once 90% of horses disappeared from streets and roads, atleast back then people were smart enough to realize that voting in a President who's ENTIRE platform centered around putting all Ferriers back to work was not only insanely stupid but un-American. I'm afraid the same can't be said for all of you... because you're actually dumber than the people who routinely died of fever and drank from LEAD fucking cups. People with severe heavy metal poisoning with the exposure to information of a 12 yr old today were functionally smarter than all of you... Hurts don't it?
But back to politicians, its like I want to believe that we are capable of true change. But then I see how Trump can make a valid point and then immediately fuck it all up by saying stupid things like "Clean Coal"... its fucking 2017... stop burning CO2 and for fuck sake will someone start talking about GHG emissions from the food industry... its not because of cow farts... its because producing one steak from start to finish, shipping, packaging and storing produces more CO2 than a small country in South America. Coal is never coming back, there isn't enough to keep up with growing demand, even if we get ti going it buys us another 5 yrs tops and then the inevitable collapse as exponential growth in demand exceeds the limits of fossil fuel energy production.
Its like if we used horses on treadmills to produce energy. Society would very quickly grow to a point where you just can't fit more horses on the planet, its too inefficient and you need something like Thorium and pray you have it developed before humanity drives itself off the edge of the metaphorical cliff. This is insanity, you people are all insane, patting each other on the back for this trivial shit or that trivial shit.
Fuck all you dumb ass niggers, whatever your skill color or creed, you're all stupid dumb niggers. Congratulations you all got exactly what you wanted... to be the most special dumb ass nigger on the cinder.
If you want meaningful change, we don't need more programs which just blindly tax fossil fuels and offer nothing else.
- We need to shift all discussion away from dead-end streets. And the stupid decisions of stupid bald idiots and Trump.
- We need to invest in renewable energy.
- We need to build Molten Salt reactors (They work, they just got defunded in the 60's when Uncle Sam figured out you can't weaponize their fuel... yay American Capitalism... suppress any technology which can't be used to murder civilians!)
- We need CO2 scrubbers, like large massive factories which suck the stuff from the air and convert it into carbon for batteries to be used on mass transport.
- And for fuck sake murder the FDA already their stupid pyramid is backwards and we need to eat FAR less meat, more varying vegetables and in smaller farms in every town and city to reduce transportation costs.
Stop worry about trivial shit, and stop getting sucked into meaningless emotional debates meant to sell you a certain politician or political party. All that matters and the only things worth talking about are what I listed above.
If you want to continue to waste your time on this planet you have the right to do so... just get out of the fucking way... some of us don't give two shits about your gossip and would prefer to return to our job of acting like respectable custodians of this planet and our genome.
