Value III

I am not so sure Sonny, most business models disregard the energetic input available to reproduce cyberspace and consumption.

Advertising simply uses natural resources to promote the further use of natural resources. If natural resources are limited, and I can assure you they are, then the business model actually has no social or environmental value.

That is to say the value is purely speculative, and subject to the ability to produce paper/digital profits from the increased use of natural resources.

Our value system is increasingly based on securing short term profits through longer term destruction. Those that profit promote this as a belief which many buy into because the religiosity doesn’t mention the side effects.

Collectively the human race is addicted to a system that promotes anthropogenic egotistical value above life itself. For example, the industry of war is increasingly valuable even though we know the implications.

Ammonia

Sure, there are serous doubts about whether you can make enough electricity from capturing diffuse natural energy to power the economy since the ability to capture diffuse natural energy comes from a hydrocarbon source.

Hydrocarbons are in fact one of the most efficient natural batteries available and yet we burn them to make batteries that last 20 years, are less efficient by many orders of magnitude, are mostly toxic, and ultimately non recyclable without an external power source.

You cannot make batteries from batteries. Elon musk and his crew are using the last of the natural energy surplus to create even more toxic waste, at a large personal profit.

And we keep on using our energetic surplus on constructing hydrocarbon dependent infrastructure as if we had an infinite supply of a fuel which we already know is finite and will run out!

Ask the NRMA how much liquid fuel Australia really has in surplus:
