Attempt at humor from a fun column failed.
Lol. I like that the studio equipment is described as a comparatively small amount of energy as opposed to the amount used to play it. (In fairness that’s an edit of what it says, but it is firmly implied in the article)
Well, I for am shocked!.
I’m just going to have to give up collecting now because the worlds voice of reason, a Vice journalist, says that we should.
Spoiler: Come on everyone and be a goodfella like me
There’s much better ways to cut your carbon emissions and environmental impact. #1 is probably getting out to vote for in the midterms. Do it.
Early voting starts in Florida this weekend. I'll be voting Sunday. Trumps folks won't be happy, but I gotta do what I can. Florida is full of stupid.
...trust me, Florida isn't the only place full of stupid
Good thing vinyl is the ONLY thing this applies to
I looked through a few of those articles and in the large they were fun and irreverent and if they get anyone thinking just a bit about their impact on the planet thats no bad thing.
The condoms one made me laugh, was pretty much along the lines of whatever environmental impact latex production has it’s going to be far less than extra humans!!
What I get from this article is that being a vinyl collector is actually good for the environment because we actually prevent vinyl from getting to the Landfill stage which pollutes the Earth. Since I hit up goodwill, Estate sales, and Thrift stores that further helps the environment. As for their suggestion to quit, no thanks, that would be irresponsible!
Try not to think so much about
The truly staggering amount of oil that it takes to make a record
All the shipping, the vinyl, the cellophane lining, the high gloss
The tape and the gear - Father John Misty
This is what my mind instantly went to.
Now I just need to find a painting forum.
I don't drive, and never have. That's one car off the road. I'll collect as much damn vinyl as I please thanks.
Plus you can use half of your records as bowls. So there's that.
Is it wrong that I now imagine @Mather cursing as milk seeps all over his counter when makes a bowl of cereal?
Sigh... No... it's not.
I tried to use my vinyl bowl in the microwave.....Definitely not a good idea.
I can help you study for the driving exam.
The earth is going to be able to bounce back, it's the things living on it that are gonna be phucked.
Lol yeah Paul Mooney had a joke he’d do about Earth Day and the arrogance of Humans saying they are going to save the Earth. As he mentioned The Earth has its own natural defenses to what we humans do to it. A flood here for global warming, Animals becoming extinct for destroying their habitats, air quality getting worse due to destruction of the Rain Forest.....Like you said doing all this will result in us getting Sticky Pudding’d by Mother Nature. Don’t worry, as long as the sun exist life will go on even if it takes another million years of evolution.
Man is this is full of misinterpretation and shows a real lack of understanding of climate and carbon science.
Yes anything that is plastic is a petroleum byproduct.
The majority of the 'impact' occurs at the point of extraction. Once that happens, you've moved geologic carbon into a much more rapidly cycling carbon form.
Of course this ignores the fact that electric vehicles and the computers used to type the "article" are full of rare-earth elements whose mining recquires a lot of energy and destruction of earth materials (rocks) that contain carbon that is also released into the atmosphere.
So yeah, sure, if you spin vinyl you're contributing to the global warming problem. If you drive a Prius, eat, poop, consume anything, you are also contributing to the global warming problem.
The moral choice is great and maybe the "right" thing to do, but anyone who doesn't think that every last once of fossil fuel will be harvested is fooling themselves (see capitalism and the global economy). If there's a hope it's when the economics of extraction and fossil fuel use outweigh the cost and inconveneience of renewable sources.
The question is only will we be able to extract everything before the earth we evolved in becomes too different for humans to survive.
I wish I could live to be 1000 just to see what happens.
