the biggie with NG, methane, etc. is the large amount that leaks into the atmosphere

 

here is one of the many drones outfitted with a methane detector to pinpoint the location of leaks:

"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

At least there are lots of pretty pictures.  Like the sled dogs enjoying a romp in the ice melt and this one of the pretty red sailboat.  Pretty much worth it don't you think?

 

Little red sailboat cruising among floating icebergs in Disko Bay glacier during midnight sun season of polar summer. Ilulissat, Greenland.

I was able to watch 54 seconds.  Since she seems to think identity is everything.  You can't be what you can't see.  I can't see me being her.  So with such a stupid, uninformed, divisive approach no need to for me to see more.

So what is this picture supposed to tell us.  Our saviour AOC, in a 1930's business suit, driving a horribly polluting 1930's convertible wearing a monocle.  Picking her teeth with a daisy or is that a sunflower?  Is she supposed to be Hitler or FDR? Maybe it is Colonel Klink.  That fits the childish demeanor of the video (and her).

In my country there appears from time to time an even worse mix, young, political, activist, environmentalist and socialist. They attract young people like honey to flies.

 

The problem that I see this as "leaders" is that they do not have practical or quick solutions.

 

But wait a moment, I think there's a solution, last night I saw a movie, Matt Damon's "Downsizing"

This is an article that you may need to read with a touch of salt and a dash of detachment. You may find yourself reflected in some of the thoughts presented.

It’s not surprising that researchers who study the dire effects of climate change might experience emotional consequences from their work. Now they’re finally talking about it.

You could summarize the key points w/o any legal trouble...

 

 

BTW, "researchers who study the dire effects of climate change" have moved from the US to Scandinavia.  One guy moved his family to Denmark.
