It's insulting that my serious post regarding pollution from the production of paper products and materials was considered SPAM. If I had known that a Username using initials and a long-time nickname would be considered 'suspicious' I guess I would have chosen something catchy like Electroglide.
It is Electriglide for the way I play heavy electric guitar.
What is spam is this: "Author of A PORTRAIT IN TIMEhttp://charlesjschneider.com
There is no doubt the paper industry is filthy and caused depletion of forests, along with the non-green building industry.
However, I look at what is the most important thing that can be done, and that is lower emissions 90% in 9 years or face methane turnover in 500 years.
It is TOO LATE to stop the mathematically certain mid century population crash. That is the root cause of all environmental problems and with greed and stupidity, why we are at this late point to prevent ours and most other species' extinction. Much more important at this point than pulp paper pollution.
Remember, unless everyone's computer is on solar like mine, and the ISP companies are emissions free, reading books on kindle or the computer screen is not very green after all.
In reality, not much is green with too many people over long term sustainable. Too late since the end of the last century to stop, but there is a small amount of time left to "maybe" stop thermageddon. Get your priorities straight, Mr. Schneider.
Like I said, the population crash of the 2040s to 2070s is no longer stoppable. All the horrors of collapsing society, economies and governments, and wars, heavy crime, including cannibalism, will be experienced by anyone alive in that period.
The tipping point of methane turnover is being crossed since 2009 Arctic reports, and will be complete by 2023. Once THAT is crossed, the survivors will face increasing heat and rapid climate fluctuation until 2500 or so when most species will have died off and humans will have no more ecosystems to live off of, and will follow most other species in an ELE worse than the K-T Event.
Write another romance novel about that!
