CO2 emissions per capita by country

    Thank you for that information! Next step: a clever economist with a really good computer model should calculate the incremental cost of each American’s lifestyle with the Earth-destroying costs of CO2 emissions factored in. This would not be easy, of course, since a dollar value would have to be placed on the extinction of the human species. For the sake of simplicity, why don’t we just round it off and call it infinite, OK?

    And that doesn’t include Australia’s exported fossil fuels (coal and gas) which are much larger. Those industries (and other extractors) have a stranglehold on our major political parties, hence our total failure to progress to the clean living we could have. You might say our politics is corrupt. Like some others.

    Polluters never paid. The bigger they were, the less they cared. Perhaps the unprecedented gathering “Davos in the Desert” will help the brothers in arms to deal with the urgent issues that humanity faces, which, unsurprisingly, are the same as those faced by the planet.

    CNN business reports on the 30th October 2019: “Davos in the Desert certainly dazzles. But the kingdom doesn’t need all that glitz and glamour. What it should focus on is maintaining steady progress on strengthening its business climate by continuing to improve the ease of doing business, encouraging increased foreign involvement by loosening onerous ownership restrictions, and — most importantly — curbing reputational and political risks by ending the flagrant abuse of human rights.”

    Oil was and remains the dark gold.

    Thanks for making this very affordable and in Kindle (very convenient).

    I wonder what odds the bookmakers are giving that Sapiens survives another 100 years? 100 to 1 would be a place to start, I guess.

    1000 to one might be closer.
