Posted at a logic challenged site called the Doomstead Diner.  ;D

Most Doomstead Diners are locked into an ideological meme lense through which they view price action in regard to just about everything that has a price on it. In fact, the "carry capacity" worshipping segment of this crowd (you know who you are ;)) believe EVERYTHING has a carrying capacity/thermodynamics price on it. They don't DO ethics or CARING CAPACITY. They consider that a bit of benny fluff luxury afforded the predators that want to feel good about themselves, not a sine qua non requirement to avoid extinction (as I have repeatedly asserted).

Consequently, I mostly avoid banging my head against the Doomstead Diner Wall present in some threads here.

But today I am in a good mood so I will provide you worthies with some advice that you can print on your toilet paper to your peril.  ;D

Why are people so ready to accept groundless assertions? For example, the entire academic community in this country had essentially written off Irish persecution in the USA as a myth just because some professor with no real evidence said it didn't happen.

And it was so EASILY REFUTED!

Keep questioning authority and orthodoxy about 'fossil fuels as our savior', thermodynamics, carrying capacity, commodity prices, 'clean energy will kill the economy', 'Renewable Energy is not practical due to low energy density', EROI, and situational ethics. 

ALL the above are presented as scientific objective truths when they are either bold faced lies or cherry picked science leaving out the entire truth. Know bullshit when you see it.  There is no reason you have to remain loyal to ideology that masquerades as objective truth.

Yes, of course those that will respond to this will undoubtedly claim I am the one locked in an ideological straight jacket denying the "scientific" carrying capacity and energy "truth".

For your sakes, I hope you are right.   8)

Have a nice day.

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." -- Aldous Huxley

"Technical knowledge of Carrying Capacity will not save us; only a massive increase in Caring Capacity will." -- A. G. Gelbert

"We canít have a healthy business on a sick planet."-- Ashley Orgain, manager of mission advocacy and outreach for Seventh Generation, Burlington, Vermont

"We do not need a 'new' business model for energy because we never had one. What we need, if we wish to avoid extinction, is to plug the environmental and equity costs of energy production and use into our planning and thinking. " -- A.G. Gelbert

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
