You where talking about excess heat. Waste heat is the primary biproduct of inefficiency. As technology gets more efficient, we’ll be able to redirect and use some of the waste heat. Though transmitting waste heat over long distances is impractical.
Life itself produces waste heat, which if everything makes waste heat, that means there is a physical limit on how much energy we can use without cooking ourselves.
No wonder aliens haven’t contacted us, they baked like a crisp trying to leave their solar system.
Well waste heat isn’t itself the only issue but the over-consumption of resources, even renewable beyond the pace at which they can be restored. Which goes beyond the existence of industrial society itself, industrial society itself just exists as a tool in the tool box and is not the informing and inspiring mechanism of social growth and expansion. Industrial production not only produces waste heat that is injected in the environment, which itself may be mitigates (ie. nuclear waste is primarily thermal as water is used to cool reactors and is released back into the environment only ever usually hot, you can just let it flow over longer canals to cool to an acceptable level before it’s released into the environment). The release of smog and industrial particulates into the atmosphere will be for a century or more a lasting legacy of over two-hundred years of industrial growth and expansion, trapping heat already circulating in the environment naturally. Even if we were to magically lower pollution output and thermal output to the level of say, 1820 there is still the lasting run-away effect of everything else that has happened before us that would need to run its course.
This also of course overlooks an entire other aspect of Kaczynski’s “Industrial society was a mistake” thesis and environmental activism and consciousness is not (and probably is not) the sole or even guiding principle of his manifesto

Notice how storms these days start out as a tiny little tropical depression/storm that seems to be no problem of handling it at all to a huge extremely beautiful yet menacing major hurricane in less than a day just before making landfall at that intensity on a very short notice for all the people to flee off of it’s path?
That honestly are the scariest. And it’s becoming more frequent.

Overconsumption of resources is a pickle, when countries and communities compete to expand faster in a bid for power.
Either things will change, or soon it won’t be our problem. Most people are not down with the cosmic slaughterhouse ‘dark forest’ way I see life, so I guess we should take action.

Well the first step to taking action is, as I say: “the most radical thing is talking to your people at work”. Since that’s where more or less all things begin, materially speaking: at the workplace.
There’s no shortage of human history or current societies in modern humanity of net-zero or low growth production. It just happens the most explicit example of that are tribal societies. But parallel to the development of humanity there have been episodes of alternatives that blink in and out. My favorite to think about are the Chinese Kongsi Republics that appeared in Brunei as an offshoot of centuries of the development of Chinese organized labor in Ming China. It just however happens that they may have been just a bit before their own time and the Dutch decided they had to destroy them in the mid 1800’s.

There are lots of people who worry about the future such as climate change, potentially losing their jobs, and war.
And then there are people who wonder what they should get for dinner as the “future”.
I’m one of those dinner people.

Caught up in thinking about the alternate history time line where the man acting on behalf of the governor general of British Colombia in the 1840’s or whenever in Honolulu says to King Kamehameha when he asks him what those weird white preachers are just off their shore, and instead of the Canadian man saying, “They’re the same as us, same religion; different country. They’re chill” he says: “Lmao fuck them they’re American”.
And so the seed of the Yankee sugar brahmin caste is sent home to Boston.
There is a direct line from there to the Kingdom of Hawaii being a party to the Canadian Acts of Confederation and joining whom they considered their peers under the protection of the British Empire in a grand new project. One which also messes up later American Pacific ambition.
This is very fun to me

I finally figured out how to keep certain channels from popping up in my “recommendations” tab on Twitch. Take that, Channel Awesome!
