Re: Collapsology- What's Your Intuition?

The fact that humans survived until now and our actual inhability to collectively plan for something are in itself a proof that children happen mostly because of some sort of urge, and not a rational choice.
Contraception and small dog breed allowing us to bypass those urges are an anomaly.

Re: COVID topic vol 2

Breathing needs to happen too often for it to be considered like something humans should learn to control. It's unfair sacrifice the health of everyone just for a minority. Especialy for something that kill people who are either above life expectancy, or suffer from an avoidable condition. I'll cons...

Re: COVID topic vol 2

Basing oneself on facts was Always wrong. To tell if a story is true, you need to look for inconsistencies in it. It's very hard to tell à lier from one affirmation, but nearly every lier will add éléments that will make his story impossible. But then, you need to trust your own ability to notice in...

Yeah, follows that eating factory potato chips leads to diminishment of human complexity compared to Ice Age guy found with 30 different species in his belly.

Externalities are a form cheating. You use ressources you don't own. There is no reason to think people will cheat less if there is carbon labeling.

Wood is only free if you let it regrow, cows are only free if they eat grass that regrows. Otherwise, you have to buy cattle food or new forests. Your really need to want it, if you try to release more co2 while spending less. Local goods cost more, because local farmer get to consume more, or pay m...

Re: A Conservative Policy Solution to Slow Down Climate Change?

You misunderstood me. I meant that if you had your own coal mine, you Can have an impact without participating in the global economy, and the metric gets less accurate. But most people need to spend money to realease significant amount of CO2. Your examples prove our point, because if those gdp chan...

Re: Smelly Swiss Dilettante

I'm not really unhappy, only when i try to work. As soon as i decide to do it later, i'm fine.
I was happy about the work as long as i knew where i hoped it to lead me.

Re: Smelly Swiss Dilettante

As long as i don't try to work, I'm fine (spend most of the week end doing stuff outside, it was nice).
But as soon as i try to work, it gets terrible. It reminds me of my PhD time.
It's annoying to see how i resist to any kind of ambition.

Re: Smelly Swiss Dilettante

I like it in Europe. I didn't feel welcome by the spirits of the Land there. It ranged from tolerating in the uper peninsula to hostile in southern Michigan. The humans were really nice.
