MKing SEZ,

Ah yes...biosphere math....brought to us by the same mathematicians who claimed net energy mattered and predicted the end of oil and gas drilling before the turn of the LAST century? And then...instead...it turned out that drill baby drill WORKED? Mathz can be tricky!

Uh, no MKing. That is NOT what I speak of when I mention BIOSPHERE MATH. I am NOT talking about Charles Hall's BALONEY about EROEI. I AGREE with you that Charles Hall is full of horse poopy.

I am talking about the THERMODYNAMICS of living organisms on planet earth as has been repeatedly and relentlessly documented by the fastidious measurements of energy capture and transfer by scientists starting with the autotrophs and going to the primary consumers and on to the heterotrophs above them and so on.

It's not rocket science but it's peer reviewed and indisputable. Hell, they got the natural logarithm function from it! Are you going to claim THAT is "tricky mathz" too? 

Unlike the "heat, beat and treat" thermodynamics "truths" that you swear by in your zeal to justify  incredibly inefficient and polluting industrial processes you are so enamored with, energy capture in the autotrophs and those that depend on them, like YOU AND I, is done WITHOUT high temperature causing WASTE of energy transfer. Enzymatic processes are FAR more efficient than THERMAL processes to capture energy for movement of muscle. In fact, said muscle DIES if the biochemical reactions occur outside a narrow band of temperature and pH.

Sure, Homo SAP has not been able to scale up bio-mimicry to the level of an electric blast furnace.  And so, you claim the "high ground" on "prudent, real world" energy CFS.

That's another false premise simply because Renewable Energy, although it is far less efficient thermodynamics wise than biological processes, is far MORE efficient that "heat , beat and treat" thermal processes. You know that. So you holler and scream "the new technology cannot be scaled up fast enough" and it is "not ready for prime time" perfidy.   

You DO NOT have the thermodynamic "high ground" with fossil fuels.

I told Nicole Foss two and half years ago that Fracking is an Obscenity. She said, "there was money to be made". And people like you have made a LOT of it. You call THAT a "bridge"? Hello? Have you even bothered to compute the SCC of Fracked gas?

Are you going to give me more BS about how we-the-people put a gun to YOUR HEAD to Frack?

Tell me MKing, how much Fracking would have been done WITHOUT the Halliburton Loophole in the Safe Drinking Water act? HUH? Right, that's water under the bridge. LOL!

Fracking HAD to get a get out of jail free card from Cheney. It did. Without it, it wasn't "cost effective", as you fossil fuelers like to claim. Any MORON can see a graph showing Fracking BEFORE the Halliburton loophole and AFTER is like an ant hill next to mount Everest! Demand and supply did not have JACK **** to do with it. You crooks pulled a fast one on the American public and now you want to dance around it and claim it was the public piggy love of "cheap" energy  that "made you do it". BALONEY!

I am continually amazed at how you take something that IS happening (large scale Fracking) as something we should all sing and dance about (after we bow down and give thanks to you for all your "sacrifices" to get us the "cheap energy" we mercilessly drove you to frack - LOL! ) and, in almost the same BREATH, you can turn around and tell us how ephemeral everything is and that "change is part of life".  ::)

Healer, HEAL THYSELF!  Renewable Energy is THE CHANGE that is happening DESPITE your foot dragging, not BECAUSE you support change. You support Fracking for the same reason Nicole Foss does (MONEY!). Had the Halliburton loophole not been shoved up our collective descending colons, we would be much farther along the transition to renewable energy. Your Fracking "bridge" is a Ponzi scheme energy DETOUR!  :emthdown:
 
Energy efficiency, thermodynamics, the public demand and our civilization's energy needs are canards you use to avoid the REAL ISSUE.

The REAL ISSUE is the following (you just don't want to go there  :emthdown:):

That pyramid below is a simplification but it gives you an idea how VITAL the PRODUCERS (the base of the trophic pyramid) are to our existence.


The MASSIVE amount of energy stored in the base from captured sunlight is necessary because energy is LOST as the secondary and tertiary trophic levels EAT the life forms below them.

The BASE does NOT have to be WIPED OUT for Homo SAPS to be TOAST. It MUST be GIGANTIC in order to provide life for the subsequent trophic levels. The INSTANT that BASE CANNOT be several times LARGER in biomass because of what WE are doing to the environment, we, along with lots of other non-producers high up on the pyramid, are on the path to extinction. We ARE THERE.

This is not hard.

1) Set the example of a Frugality is Freedom Minimalist Mindset lifestyle
. BUT THAT IS NOT GOING TO CUT IT! The hippies did that and made the MISTAKE of dropping out. They were supposed to use that very same psychology the propagandists for dirty energy used to turn the masses into piggies. That TOOL is to be found in Maslow's hierarchy. IT is called PEER GROUP ACCEPTANCE. That is why TPTB demonized the hippies. That STRIPPED THEM of their ability to exert PEER PRESSURE on "respectable citizens". The rest is history.  If THAT history is repeated and pro-renewable energy minimalist mindset people are demonized by TPTB, Homo SAP is history! Now to step 2.

2 Explain the OBVIOUS to the propagandized chumps.

3. Use peer pressure to cajole, coax, mock, lambast, accuse of foot dragging and lack of CFS, suicidal tendencies, being dumb as a post (and so on - you get the idea) fellow Homo SAPS 24/7.

Unless ET and the USAF have a press conference (After all the big oil CEO's commit suicide  :icon_mrgreen:) announcing zero point free energy appliances, flying machines and lunch will now be available to every Homo SAP on the planet within a year or so, there is no alternative to a low carbon economy, PERIOD.

The PLAN, if you can call it that, is to RESPECT and CARE FOR THE TROPHIC PYRAMID, especially the BASE.
And give HELL to everyone that won't do that!

This is not hard.



Pictorial lesson plan for informing the uninformed: The "logical" choices presented by the profit over planet evolutionary dead enders to the propagandized chumps:

Short cognitive time horizons are not conducive to Homo SAP species perpetuation.  8)
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.. -- Psalm 34:6
