Electric Cars Add to Climate Change

Climate change: Electrical industry’s ‘dirty secret’ boosts warming.Sulphur hexafluoride, or SF6, is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents But leaks of the little-known gas were the equivalent of putting an extra 1.3 million cars on the road.It is widely used across the industry, from large power stations to wind turbines to electrical sub-stations in towns and cities. It prevents electrical accidents and fires. Solar and wind are not waste free. What to do with the old equipment such as turbine blades? However, the significant downside to using the gas is that it has the highest global warming potential of any known substance. It is 23,500 times more warming than carbon dioxide (CO2).A study from the University of Cardiff found that across all transmission and distribution networks, the amount used was increasing by 30-40 tonnes per year.This rise was also reflected across Europe with total emissions from the 28 member states in 2017 equivalent to 6.73 million tonnes of CO2. That’s the same as the emissions from 1.3 million extra cars on the road for a year.

Then we have air travel which is increasing the amount of CO2 each year. Fact is there is no use of energy that is clean and as populations increase so does energy use. The solution is not in the marketing of making more “stuff” but decreasing consumers.

Create a New Life

THE SUICIDE RATE IN THE U.S. HAS HIT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN 50 YEARS, AND THERE IS CONCERN THAT IT WILL GO MUCH HIGHER
Life is an absolutely incredible gift, and don’t let anyone ever convince you that you should end it.

More laws and control over individuals does not give individuals the freedom to live their own values. Marketing has created a culture where people are worried about what other people think. Fact is you have control of how you feel not the minds of other people or groups.

Vaping, Drugs, Physical Risks, Poor Health Habits

As long as government is providing benefits for heath insurance, disability, medicare, medicare, welfare, food stamps, housing, phones, etc. there is very little incentive to care about your health or the future. Self inflicted problems and risks people take should not be supported by the taxpayer.

We Asked Prosecutors if Health Insurance Companies Care About Fraud. They Laughed at Us.
To protect their networks and bottom lines, health insurers don’t aggressively pursue widespread fraud, making it easy for scammers. Then they pass the costs off to you.

Why is it Mississippi has a very low average household income?

The median U.S. household income remained essentially flat at $63,179 in 2018 after three straight years of growth, according to Census Bureau figures that offer a broad look at Americans’ financial well-being.

Could it be that the leaders are taking advantage of the poorly educated public and using them as slaves? Recruiting low pay jobs? Not promoting research and inventing new products to sell world wide? The present MS average job is obsolete and will be replaced by machines.

The Tribal Wisdom of the Dakota Indians

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from one generation to the next, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.
But in modern business, because heavy investment factors are taken into consideration, other strategies are often tried with dead horses, including the following:

1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Changing riders.
3. Threatening the horse with termination.
4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.
6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
7. Reclassifying the dead horse as “living-impaired”. .
8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse. .
9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
10. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse’s performance.
11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.
12. Declaring that the dead horse carries lower overhead and therefore contributes more to the bottom line than some other horses.
13. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

Quality Public Service

ISO 9000 is a set of international standards on quality management and quality assurance developed to help companies effectively document the quality system elements to be implemented to maintain an efficient quality system. Sadly to say our local government does not care about quality service for what the taxpayer is paying for. Today the test of the emergency warning system was not exactly at 12 noon that most cities can set their watches at. Then we have the water meter readers that do not have the will to seat the meter covers down properly. The maintenance department has trucks that leak oil on the street and the wrong street sweeping equipment for collecting leaves. They rarely sweep the streets in my area. The whole school and city budget does not include money for preventive maintenance or replacing things at their life expectancy.

Lack of thought and wisdom in most City Council decisions cost the tax payer much more later. They do things not for the best interest of the majority of the taxpayers but rather for personal connections.

Fiduciary Responsibilities

Tupelo leaders have fiduciary responsibilities to the tax paying citizens. The monies from local, state, and national taxes that provide for the upkeep of government and enforcing the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Over the years these documents have been stretched and bent to support many questionable wastes of money that only benefit a few. Tupelo is not spending wisely and not being accountable for the money it is wasting. The public transit is not sustainable. Painting lines on narrow streets is a dumb idea. Contracting a pool and then not including the full costs is more than just being stupid. Grant money is taxpayer money and it has been used to support personal agendas of a few holing power in Tupelo. If the city wants to bring benefits to the majority of citizens it needs to recruit high paying occupations not the tourist trade which does not pay a living wage. Painting bike lanes on residential streets or funding a bus system no one rides is not making Tupelo a supporter of the documents this country was founded on.

Not Ready for Prime Time

Automatic emergency-braking systems that are promoted as a safety feature in vehicles don’t always work as intended and at times activate when there is no risk of a crash, drivers say. If you ever driven in busy traffic you know these things cause accidents.

Money, Resources, Value

There seems to be confusion about modern economics. Money is just a promise of future return of resources, labor, or something of value. Resources are physical things such as food or putting together a car. Value is what an individual is willing to provide for something they need, want, or desire. Money is created with a promise such as if you want a house you go to the bank and promise to pay back money borrowed from the bank to get the wanted house. The bank gets its money from promising the federal reserve it will pay them back. The federal reserve gets its money from the government promises that come in the form of treasury bonds the government promises it will pay back the federal reserve.

What if we can not keep our promise?

Resources are finite limited to the earth and nature. The use of resources needs to be balanced by nature. If we use them faster there is a natural consequence. “The vast majority of the Amazon fires have been set by loggers and ranchers to clear land for cattle. The more humans the more food needed. The more food needed the less for natural environment which results in many consequences like climate change. Making more promises and money does not increase resources. It is the cause of inflation. More money, finite resources, makes money have less of a value.

Value is different for each individual and works with needs, wants, and desires. For example if you are thirsty in the desert you value water much more than the free fountain that is in the mall. The millionaire might value a 300 million dollar painting on his wall but the homeless in a tent has no immediate use of a painting in his tent. Only the value of the painting for the homeless is what he can trade promises for.

In the big picture people can promise anything but not be able to deliver. This is a problem when people make children they do not have the resources to provide for them.

Walmart sues Tesla over solar panel fires at seven stores

Solar will not provide clean energy as the marketing campaign wants you to believe. The media is marketing more stuff to the consumer which will need to be replaced. This is all about creating an economy and growth using finite natural resources. If you want cheap energy stop having so many children that over populate the earth and use resources.
