    Meh. If you really had any balls you post some of your own content instead of being the copy and paste queen.

    Why does that chart give a damn about 2050, when we will all be extinct by 2026.

    Hell, it's the name of the thread!

    It seems we've found Mtbr's 'Bizzaro' Boris Badenov. But, without the good taste in music.

    Ya it is odd, and his cultish avatar is out-there as well. On the subject of climate change that new report tungsten excerpted from above, told me something. I as surprised the US is #2 on the carbon emissions list. I'd fallen prey to all the anti-'others' talk and believed China and India were belching out the most. Carbon is tricky, not being obvious like diesel smoke. In traffic this morning I saw a big beautiful Silverado blow past some little econo-box. It was "rolling coal" and half covered us in a cloud. I guiltily looked down at the dash of my economic sedan to see the MPG reading 28 and told myself (again) I'm not the problem. After that little wave of guilt passed I thought of some of the more vocal visitors here @MTBR and sighed.

    Of course, like most of the crap posted by Tungsten there's no footnote of further explanation nor an active link to the source.

    Tungsten: Please define whether this graph is at the producer level or at the consumer level? For example; how is coal that was dug out of the ground in Wyoming but burned in China accounted for in this presentation?

    And then the carbon emissions of rebar made in China from recycled steel (from anywhere) using USA coal but then sold in Europe?

    Unfortunately all of us living in 1st world countries are living in a manner that is unsustainable.

    Every carbon footprint calculator will show that anyone living anything slightly resembling a a life in a 1st world country is using too many resources.

    Generally carbon footprint calculators show how many planet earths would be needed to supply everyone on earth with the resources they need if everyone lived as you do. Even quite frugal environmentally minded living will turn out a result of "3 planet earths"...

    Type in a fake email address on this carbon footprint calculator and get started, check out your actual consumption, but what is really alarming is that even if you are very frugal with your consumption you still can't get your consumption to a point where everyone on earth could live like you without exceeding the supply of our resources.

    I answered the carbon footprint calculator honestly and my result was 4.3 planet earths

    :-/

    But in the context of my post, referencing jim c's post, "I'm not part of the problem", all of us sitting in a home/office with a car in the driveway posting on the internet are almost assuredly "part of the problem". I don't lose any sleep over it, though, fwiw.

    I was 8.58. I tried various options to try and get up to ten (it is good to have goals) but it would be hard for me to get that high. I'll keep trying.

    But it's not a problem. It's like saying that if everyone jumped at the same instant something bad would happen, so don't jump! The availability of resources is inherently self-regulating so the idea that we will run out is silly.

    I mentioned nothing about us "running out of resources".

    Well, yes you can actually... don't ask me how I know, but I know this.

    As for the 2026 thing, if there are any daisies left to push up by then, I will probably be doing that, but wouldn't mind something left over for my kids... it'll be touch and go if we don't do something pretty radical quite soon... maybe if we give everyone with a credit card unlimited credit, and legalize blow, we'd thin the herd a little. That may help.
    It's all Here. Now.

    I'm thinking there should be a new forum rule. Once you get to five red chicklets, the forum member who lives closest to you has to come around to your house and shoot you in the dick!

    Congratulations for posting something other than climate propaganda. Well done.

    Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals — the sixth wave of extinctions in the past half-billion years. We’re currently experiencing the worst spate of species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Although extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural “background” rate of about one to five species per year. Scientists estimate we’re now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the background rate, with literally dozens going extinct every day.

    One day, you will be extinct. Have you thought about that?
