How Human Psychology Holds Back Climate Change Action

smg5266 Re:Here's what holds ME back. (530 comments)

We will have to lower our overall consumption of energy while simultaneously increasing efficiency/reducing cost of renewables to stand a chance. I think it was a fair point. There are a few green products that may be worth it (local food, renewable energy etc), but most are just a fashion statement.

How Human Psychology Holds Back Climate Change Action

smg5266 Re:Here's what holds ME back. (530 comments)

It can be cheaper to go green. Drop down to 1 car if possible (try to bike or walk instead). Buy clothes from the thrift store etc. Switch to mostly vegetarian diet (maybe not cheaper now, but meat prices are skyrocketing so it will likely get there soon). Run your AC/heat less. Buy a used car (it may get less mpg but I imagine the emissons saved from not having to manufacture/transport a brand new car would make it worth it) In general, buying/consuming less is greener, and obviously cheaper. I bet it has a much higher impact than buying organic/fair trade shit, or prius's

Apple Leaves Journalists Jonesing

I don't understand, I thought corporate tax is only applied to a company's profits, that is only after the company pays all their expenses etc. Why would this "cost" have to be passed onto consumers?

Big Advance In Hydrogen Production Could Change Alternative Energy Landscape

smg5266 Re:Really? (340 comments)

Not so fast, heat pumps have an effective efficiency higher than 100% (in reality it's because it takes some energy from the surroundings). I suspect something similar here.

smg5266 Re:Cellphone companies suck even more (317 comments)

Weather and cell phones seem to be the only reasons for an American to not move to Canada (and BC weather is probably better than a lot of areas in the US)

I Get Most of My Caffeine Through

smg5266 Chocolate? (283 comments)

I eat at least a bar of strong dark chocolate every week, but I'd imagine that even one cup of coffee will have more caffeine than an entire bar of chocolate. I have tried some coffee infused chocolate bars however.

Will Renewable Energy Ever Meet All Our Energy Needs?

smg5266 Re:Oil is a finite resource (626 comments)

WTF? Any plant that grows in the ground gets its energy from the sun. So growing our own plants for oil is no better than using solar panels, and is probably better due to the fact that growing plants have to be processed into oil and then burned to get the energy out of it. Also, good luck finding a way to synthesize oil and getting more energy out of it then you put in (it's impossible).
