@Ferretsyndicate “Almost 50% of global carbon emissions arise from the activities of around 10% of the global population, increasing to 70% of emissions from just 20% of citizens,”
(just copied it from before https://mastodon.nl/web/statuses/100867602580905190)
@Ferretsyndicate This is really misleading, it really should read "71% of carbon emissions come from products of 100 companies." It's not like ExxonMobile has burned 17 GtCO2 on their own, they sold it to us and we burned it. So yes, turning off the lights will in fact help.
@ervanalb oh awesome thanx for standing up for exxonmobil--the company who's been engaging in a massive campaign to mislead the public about global warming even when their internal studies showed that they knew it was true--too bad it was all our fault.
We need more brave ppl like you
@Ferretsyndicate and its made me look way more into emissions and whatnot. For instance, I didn't know that total end-to-end energy usage is only 30% efficient. Efficiency improvements seem like a valid way to fight emissions, if you don't want to hedge on those 100 companies doing the right thing.
@Ferretsyndicate oil execs deserve guillotines too!
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
