Value

Just wait until they find out, the true value of Facebook and snapchat like things.

All they have to sell is consumption, the goal of which seems to be the destruction of the natural world.

What a ignominious goal for humanity, to worship growth until we run out.

As Plato said, they see but the shadows of things, not the things themselves.

A fractional reserve

Money is debt,
created by government bonds,
and/or fractional reserve banking,
essentially the same thing.

since decoupling from the gold
Standard money is fiat
the value ascribed an indication
of the confidence of the market
in the medium of exchange

To goal being to siphon a proportion.
Due the ‘inventor’ of the investment opportunity.
Converting a substantial proportion of manufactured debt,
into personal worth.
Is to goal, for every good capitalist.

Even better, if you can.
Leverage the feel good factor,
associated with sustainability.
Seeming to mean,
use everything today before it runs out,
because of the collective investment in debt.

Blackholes

So, let us imagine there is energy,
outside of the system,
On a different mass or pressure gradient
Outside of space would be
the area that space has expanded into

The expansion of space would
Cause this system to push back
Hey bitch
You are making your space out of my space
Even if in a different dimension

Like adolescent space pimples
The energy in the space being expanded into
Would find weaknesses in the bubble
The differential existential pressure
would burst at galactic size

If space is expanding into temporal dimensions
if a black hole is the energetic equivalent of a pressure gradient,
changing the energy of mass,
what is it changing in to?

Jobs and growth

You all digress

why is jobs and growth the goal of society would be a better question

jobs and growth lead to more growth, to greater GDP, for a more equal basis for which to consume.

Basically, if you have a job you can buy shit

is the shit you buy good for society, the environment,

If you are consuming the world at an unsustainble rate, how can this be good?

did you go from working 3 days a week to,
both parents full time
with the kiddies in day care,
Paying the cost of jobs and growth?

dont look to your politicians for answers
all they promise is more

jobs and growth

On the News

Today we were told the news
As it happened
And when more happened
They told us the news again

At the current rate of news
the energy runs out quite soon
A quick flash in the Pan of concern
replaced by a few murders

Car accidents consumed the next day
And traffic troubles when
Quite a few hours afterwards
A child was run over

Consumption was rife
And so was extinction
Their quid pro quo relationship
left out of the news

Facts aside
sacrificed to entertainment
The truth
starts making the news

Democracy

At least 10 percent of Germans
Have. O sense of history

And the 50 odd percent
Who voted an idiot
To be their most prescient

Should be suspended next time
From making the effort,
to take the trouble
To cast an uninformed vote

Climate change

We have consumed half of the resources of the world
Or slightly more
To build something that must re-capitalise
half of the resources again
Exponentially

In order to maintain this human half life
We compete to consume our finite sphere
Accelerating entropy
Without even the most basic understanding
Of science

Replacement

By 2030 the EU aims to generate 27% of its energy from renewable sources. However, the renewable-energy sector in Europe is heavily reliant on hydrocarbons for the supply of raw materials critical for the development of technology such as solar cells and wind turbines.

Myth 1

Renewables are renewable using renewable energy

Only by doing several (presumably fatal) experiments is it possible to know what will break the back of a camel.

Is it doubtful, based on the laws of physics, whether a battery or any other renewable source can be made without a surplus supply of energy.

Economics tells us we can increase our GDP simply by increasing our material wealth utilising such methods as increasing the debt coefficient inherent in the cost of housing, by increasing the velocity of money or by using concentrated solar energy to capture diffuse energy by the means of other physical infrastructure such as ‘renewables’.

This growth in GDP does not mean the GDP fueled economy is energetically sustainable and in fact, logically, it points in the other direction. From a purely economic view, things tend to get more expensive as scarcity increases.

From an energetic viewpoint, using the stored solar energy of a few hundred million years, to create a storage system, with hugely negative environmental side effects, that lasts for 15-20 years is the height of folly.

A focus on maintenance rather than growth would quickly disabuse the market of the ‘renewable based on an Infiniti supply’ myth.

The myth of the energetically sustaible economy is popular and strong because it tells us everything will remain the same, only better.

Which is of course what we want to hear, imagine someone telling you that half of the worlds stored energy had been used to create an infrastructure, with a 50-70 year lifespan totally dependent on being recreated by the half we have already used.

Next time you ride under that freeway, wonder how it will be recreated in 30 years or so, from a a solar panel that wore out 10 years ago
