...world and governments logic...!
A Bad Bet on Carbon
By ROBERT BRYCE
Published: May 12, 2010
The third, and most vexing, problem has to do with scale. In 2009, carbon dioxide emissions in the United States totaled 5.4 billion tons. Let’s assume that policymakers want to use carbon capture to get rid of half of those emissions — say, 3 billion tons per year. That works out to about 8.2 million tons of carbon dioxide per day, which would have to be collected and compressed to about 1,000 pounds per square inch (that compressed volume of carbon dioxide would be roughly equivalent to the volume of daily global oil production).
In other words, we would need to find an underground location (or locations) able to swallow a volume equal to the contents of 41 oil supertankers each day, 365 days a year.
...but as you could imagine, how the USA
thinks, and world governments...!
...they will use up nearly every drop of
crude oil, every source of coal...!, etc.,
before they are obliged to go solar, not
to mention that nuclear, is a bigger problem,
...lets say they might not realize how
pure logic thinks...!
...they have to keep the World going on
what is "there", and then make work sources,
on organic fuels and organic "fertilizers"...!
...in this process, what happens, will be a
source a more work, cleaning up, or
countering, if it can be countered...!
...pure logic thinks beyond this and their
way of providing for an artificial economy...!
and their belief that all that exists, and
they way things function in human society, is
the balance of life, and the "intelligent"
way of being...!
...of course they are all wrong, wrong, as
their religions are, their Biology Evolution
Science, and the rest of their Economy
...BUT SOMEHOW THEY SEEM TO BE SURE I AM
WRONG, OR RESULTS FROM PURELOGIC COULD
LEAD TO SOMETHING WORSE...!
...THIS IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT STUDIED
UP MY WRIT, NOR PURE LOGIC ...! NOR DO THEY
THINK THERE IS ANY NEED FOR IT...!
World cropland per capita has been steadily declining and is now less than 0.23 ha per capita; and down to as little as 0.08 ha in China, the world’s most populous country. To enjoy a diverse diet similar to that of the U.S. and Europe, 0.5 ha per capita of cropland is required. With more of the world desirous of a western diet, it’s obvious that more pressure will be applied to the arable land that remains.
