It might not be achievable in absolute terms, but it's worth aiming at - like reducing infant mortality to zero, or irradiating malaria.
I like silly, pie in the sky as much as the next guy, but this isn't practical.
Even if we can achieve perfect efficiency in energy use, and scrub all our exhalations, we will be making heat.
More and more heat.
The earth will be ruined. Or we'll have to develop big fins for earth.
The heat generated by our industrial activities is only a tiny fraction of the heat being trapped by higher CO2 levels.
Facts are important.
I wasn't talking about facts, if you look back and read it again, I said that no matter how well we improve efficiency, we will still be making too much heat for earth to dissipate.
So a giant fin, or such. This isn't my idea, by the way, but to get an idea of scale, the author I stole it from had the fictional ability to move planets, 5 at a time, by using a sun as an engine.
So BIG thinks. If Brian wanted to bring infant mortality to zero, reduce c02 emissions to similar levels, then we will still have the problem of our waste heat.
And I don't care if you think facts are important. In your actions (which speak louder than your words) you value reason over empiricism. I can respect that you see the world that way, but it isn't the way I see it.
Shit, Piss, Cock, Cunt, Motherfucker, Cocksucker and Tits.
