Getting some warmth in here would be pretty nice. We're already having freezing temperatures around.

Let me guess...you didn't bother to read the scientific papers? Biodiversity loss is a more immediate threat.

 

Or would you like to join Trump's dumb ass sons, Don Jr. & Eric, in being a d-bag big cat killer?

P.S. Tell me how you like your warmth when the food chain collapses.

"Big cat populations have severely declined over the last half-century and could face extinction in the following decades. According to IUCN estimates: lions are down to 25,000, from 450,000; leopards are down to 50,000, from 750,000; cheetahs are down to 12,000, from 45,000; tigers are down to 3,000 in the wild, from 50,000.[113] A December 2016 study by the Zoological Society of London, Panthera Corporation and Wildlife Conservation Society showed that cheetahs are far closer to extinction than previously thought, with only 7,100 remaining in the wild, and crammed within only 9% of their historic range.[114] Human pressures are to blame for the cheetah population crash, including prey loss due to overhunting by people, retaliatory killing from farmers, habitat loss and the illegal wildlife trade."    https://en.wikipedia...cene_extinction

You do realize I come from the cold North where there are no wild big cats and we have the issue that due to urbanisation and population loss we are having too many wild animals around causing all sorts of trouble? We find all sorts of new foreign animals moving in, actually increasing our biodiversity due to global warming.

Source?

 

And how would "population loss" be positive, unless there was an overabundance of an invasive species? If you have an increasing biodiversity in your area, as you claim, it does not eliminate the fact that OVERALL, on EARTH, biodiversity has been decreasing due to global warming.

 

Btw, here are some info on wild big cats:

 

List of Big Cats:
 
ISEC Status of Wild Cats:
 
Wild Cats Magazine (Includes wild cats, in general):
 
 
Also, I live in the mountains, in the state with the highest average elevation in the US (that fact showed up on my Jeopardy game for Nintendo DSi the other day el oh el). I planted a bee & butterfly garden in the spring. The daily temperatures earlier this month were in the 90s. It is supposed to be in the 70s today. I haven't seen a bee for MONTHS and I have seen a total of 3 Monarch butterflies this year.

Solar panels today are more efficient. Also, most currently-manufactured solar panels will last 25+ years.

 

Solar panels ARE recyclable. In fact, the companies I get mine have recycling programs for panels.

 

The batteries used in solar powered systems to store energy are also recyclable. I currently use lead-acid batteries, in terms of larger batteries, as opposed to lithium, because the local battery recycling centers in my area do not accept large lithium batteries. Lead-acid batteries are much heavier in weight than lithium, so if a lithium battery program is incorporated in my area, I will switch to those since they are more portable.

I mean the biggest problem with energy waste and climate change in the US is car culture.

 

Our cities are designed for cars. Public transportation isn't feasible because of our low population density and massive urban sprawl. I haven't looked at the numbers but I think literally every major city in the US is less dense than Paris (population per 1km) including NYC.

 

Arguably the best way to deal with this is to abandon the 'burbs and move to cities again. And fix the social/economic problems of cities. Such as turning a blind eye to homelessness. Crime and lifestyle that make it really not appealing to raise families in cities. Almost a fundamental do-over of urban design to make cities able to be traversed on foot or public transportation safely and cleanly.

 

 

 

Again something like this would require something on the order of the federal government buying all the suburbs and forcing everyone into city centers and probably having to subsidize building decent living areas are doing infrastructure around it entirely. Arguably gentrification is starting this process though.

 

 

And as always this is America so theres a racial element to this, white flight was a massive contributor to the decay and neglect of downtown areas.

Car culture and suburbs are so many orders of magnitude a problem larger than plastics waste but also offer no elegant solutions. Its a fundamental culture change that will be needed to fix this and so many millions of people will be screwed over in the process.

 

But the bight side is if you do it right, no sitting in traffic for an hour commutes to work. Cities are clean and beautiful with design for people to walk around them, with crime not being an issue like it is now.

Arguably the best way to deal with this is to abandon the 'burbs and move to cities again. 

 

Is it cities or is it the 'burbs? You are contradicting yourself. Regardless, electric cars can fix this, because they can be charged via solar. However, electric cars are too pricey atm. Ppl can buy a used car for less than $1k, which is far more feasible financially than $30k+ for an electric car, obviously. This will be an ongoing issue until electric car prices drop.

 

I used to live in a town with a population of less than 500. Ofc, I had to constantly drive out of town since the only thing in that town was a post office &...a gas station <.<

 

I live in a slightly more urban area now, so I'm able to walk to certain stores, but I still have to drive in order to play music & dance, most of which I do outside that area.

 

As for a "racial element to this," wtf does that mean? Half my family is part black. When my cousins moved here years ago, the day after they moved into their old house, the dumb ass redneck next door to them put up a confederate flag.

 

Hopefully, my biracial family will eventually scare off all the idiotic white rednecks into their "white flight," since rednecks cause decay to the area.

1.) Burbs sloppiness:

Both cities and burbs are designed for cars in America relative to European cities. I'm also including burbs in the cities definition sloppily. So I'm for example including the Los Angeles metropolitan area and not just the city bounds. Because arguably los angeles's metropolitian area is a mega city, and this sprawled out mega city is not a feature of European cities. Theres no 100 square miles of suburbs surrounding paris.

 

2.) Do I think electric cars fix this?

Electric cars don't really fix this. Electricity can't be entirely cleanly generated with current tech. The main issue is storage and transporting electricity. Transporting is an incredibly lossy process because of the underlying physics. Most of the electricity will be lost as heat somewhere along the chain. If you are okay with a 'just so' story I think that its something like 80% gets lost as heat between generating and using along this whole chain.

 

Ideally your electricity is generated nearby but theres huge parts of america where its not feasible to do current renewables for generation and storing and transporting the electricity from a solar productive area like Arizona to New Hampshire results in incredible entropy waste.  Even with areas like Arizona or California you cant store all the energy you generate from solar. So most of your solar energy is generated before 5pm and most of the demand is after 5pm. And we currently don't have the technology to store most of the energy generated. So you have to current burn fossil fuels to make up the difference. 

 

But the problem with vehicles is our urban design is unsustainable, you simply can't live in LA without transportation. European cities which existed pre industrial revolution were designed to be walk able and maintained that feature even in a world with cars. 

 

3.) White flight

As a matter of history, most people used to live in major cities until the 1940's. Most young men got drafted for ww2. Most young men who got drafted were white and got the GI bill which encouraged them to move to suburbs. The result of this is that most white people left the cities and city centers became poor and neglected and had primarily minority populations. And a lot of these new suburbs had segregation laws preventing black families from moving there as well.

 

The result of this is in downtown areas like Chicago, los angeles, detroit you started to see the cities get run down and the local institutions run into budget problems and neglect. I make the race argument here because its a bit further than just "most of the rich people left the cities" narrative. There is a lot of deliberate racial elements here that made things worse. Which is why ever major city was incredibly dangerous until the 90's. 

 

Because america has awful race relations people turned a blind eye to this. When you watch the 2020 democrat primaries where Kamala Harris is calling out Joe Biden its referring to this. Where communities de facto segregation (from white flight from the GI bill housing) was supposed to be fixed by busing which Joe Biden opposed.

 

I make the argument that gentrification is a good thing if done right because you want cities where you have people of mixed wealth levels living nearby each other to build a common culture. (kind of like japan does it). But gentrification doesn't work either because you just displace those same people again. 

 

4.) Your experience

 

Again walking to towns or living in rural areas isn't bad or good. You as an individual don't matter. This is about institutions.

4.) Your experience

 

Again walking to towns or living in rural areas isn't bad or good. You as an individual don't matter. This is about institutions. This is about urban planning which is by far the biggest contributor of carbon in America. 

 

 

 

If we had european style urban planning and did no changes to current electricity infrastructure our carbon footprint would massively decrease on that change alone. More than any other source other than power generation. 

 

A solar-powered PRT system, connecting cities to outlying suburban areas could possibly solve this, but there has never been a city I've been to where I wasn't able to walk.

 

You can find a 100 watt solar panel for under 100 bucks nowadays, so it wouldn't be that costly to set up a personal solar array for an electric vehicle compared to the actual electric vehicle itself. And YES, you can efficiently store energy using solar, regardless of the amount of light available. Simple: buy more batteries for storage. Batteries are not that expensive. Also, in terms of long distance travelling, there are flexible solar panels available, that you can attach to a car. Even in this mountainous, rural state, there are Tesla stations now to charge electric cars for long distance travel.

 

As for your "white flight" topic you keep bringing up, idk about most ppl, but my parents were both originally from poor, rural areas. They moved to the city to go to college, in a more racially diverse area. They both worked in that area for years, I was born & raised in that area, and while my family was in the city, it was the wealthiest we have ever been. Rural areas, and even suburban areas, is where you find poverty. White areas. I associate poverty with white people.
