For that uncle who says China's doing 'nothing.' Now he'll say China's lying. Never mind that uncle, he's a lost cause.
I watched Biden's presser live last night, I was proud of him.
He is doing such a good job, I wish everyone understood that and refrain from voting for a guy who wants to put all libs in concentration camps (not just immigrants) and weaponize the DOJ against everyone who's ever hurt Trump's fee fees.
A large part of why China ramped up their coal power plants in the last decades is because the entire western world moved their factories over there. In any kind of fair bookkeeping this would be registered as our pollution. But we live in a world where the companies move around production to where it is cheapest, and the cheapest countries get the blame for being the cheapest.
So when China goes green then their production costs will go up, and all companies will move their factories to another country that will then also build coal plants to power those factories.
I'm happy about all the good OHJB does. Kinda wish it didn't have to be at Filoli, because it's beautiful and full of rich old farts from Woodside. Which means it fucks up my horse veterinarian's commute on the first weird-ass rainy day in NorCal, and all the horses have decided to have tummy trouble, including mine. IT'S MY FUCKING FIRST WORLD, AMIRIGHT?
Ta, Dok. I'll take all the Nice Times I can.
Just a tip, if someone's argument for why we shouldn't do things to combat climate change is that it's because OTHERS are not doing exactly that so we shouldn't be doing it also, then maybe, just maybe, that person isn't being sincere about actually wanting to combat climate change.
So the Chinese are going to help solve their own hoax? As if! Someone notify Rep. Higgins.
Okeh, impromptu htps://Wonkzoom.com re: Business development.
Wow. CO2 AND plastic pollution. The astroturf push-back is going to be ferocious. Republican fascists will do everything they can to pitch this as something between capitulation and treason, or fuck it, why not both? Good job President OHJB.
Clearly the way to make EVERYONE happy, and I mean EVERYONE, is to frame this as some great competition to be first to get to 100% renewable sustainable the FASTEST...Turn it into an upbeat version of the space race of the 50s and 60s. Right wingers can get what THEY want by making it ugly and xenophobic and environmentalists in both countries can wink knowingly at each other across the Pond, giddy with the knowledge that we tricked our respective RW authoritarian 'leaders' into doing the right thing...
OUR COLD WAR WITH CHINA OVER WHO WILL BE FIRST SUSTAINABLE!!!
right, thats it..."cold war"...let's go with that
Yes, Future Crunch has been saying for months China is getting into alternative non-coal energy. However, they also want to use a lot of hydropower which recent droughts have made unavailable. But it's predicted 2024 will the highest use of fossil fuel by China.
"US And China — Yes, THAT China — Agree To Expand Renewable Energy, Ditch Fossil Fuels"
It's a nice thought; let's hope China acts on it. Maybe they've noticed that OHJB has been working on this. He already has one heck of a record going.
He'd not even been out of bed very long when not long ago paul ambled in here bearing victuals, serving me the warm, melting cheese and a fresh dollop of sour cream adorned remaining half of the bean and cheese burrito I had for supper last night. The fact of the matter is that after accomplish all of the necessary chores early this morning I was feeling a bit peckish and his timing was ideal.
The man is rather nice to have around sometimes.
Joe Biden's going to run and win on his record. It's a damn good record.
I'm sure Herschel is happy that China's bad air won't be coming over to America and pushing our good air to, I guess(?), New Zealand.
Now if we could just cut down all those trees we will be pollution-free by '33.
Reached for comment, Herschel said he will celebrate by paying for two abortions today and splurging by also kicking in Uber fare for the lucky two women.
I suppose China is going to have a lot of people with experience in overcoming scaling problems...
Hope. I want to have hope for the future.
