Carbon

Recommended Posts

This seems to be the latest marketing buzzword to also help the environment. If you fill up with premium unleaded petrol or diesel a lot of fuel stations are vowing to plant trees to help reduce carbon emissions. Is this possible?

 

Amazon has said they are aiming to be carbon neutral by I think 2040. Microsoft have said they are aiming to be carbon negative by 2050, meaning they remove more carbon than they produce. Is this even possible? How can you remove carbon from the environment?

 

Is this marketing gibberish or are they really going to help the environment by achieving these things?

It's carbon dioxide which is a greenhouse gas

If you plant trees, for example, they use carbon dioxide to grow and so remove it from the atmosphere.

A worse greenhouse gas is methane

You can't remove it from the environment, but you can plant trees and other plants, which take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere - and you can stop using so many fossil fuels, so you're releasing less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. 

 

If they - and all companies and governments - did enough of these things, there might (only "might") - be a chance of preventing a total, global calamity; but I suspect it's just greenwashing, marketing bullshit. The kind of action that is needed would mean the end of capitalism as we know it, but most of the major polluting countries are led by twats committed to the most damaging forms of capitalism.

an outside gas cooker then, get a proper barbecue - they use charcoal and wood, create a real barbecue flavour.

Too labour intensive.

I've got a Weber and use it often, all year round. There are many benefits to a gas BBQ. I would happily also have a charcoal one but for some insane reason the wife won't let us have two barbecues.

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
