Re: The bottom line

Fine, throw away your smartphones, your IoT shit, your electric car, your washing machine ... and everything else ... well if that's going to help us to a carbon-free world, then think how much better it would be if we eliminated Facebook, Twitter, Tiktok etc, etc, etc? They use massive amounts of power globally and we do with our continuous social media interactions.

I would be so happy to go back to the days when I sat in a field watching the Pink Floyd and then Nice on a stage about 20 feet away, and then a few weeks later watching Al Stewart changing a string on his guitar and start singing again ... sure, it wasn't 100% carbon free but it was way less than sitting in the living room and watching a 98" TV.
