Sorry. I meant we will be able to begin the decades long revamping of everything after January 2021 when we inaugurate a forward thinking President and flip the Senate.

I find you at Permalink #7373, but still don't know who billvon post_id=1502091 time=1570381196 user_id=2042 is.

I won't accuse you of moving the goal posts, it a common enough short-hand. This 'forward[-]thinking President' would have to be a God-Emperor, where do you propose to find one of those?

[Were #7310 and #7311 cross-talk for another thread?]

Now I don't know what endless-sphere is. Let's not worry about it.

Phys.org sez:
Work less to save the planet? How to make sure a four-day week actually cuts emissions

I read a book in the 1970s by a Texas oilman titled Time Wealth. Internet knows nothing about it, I may still have my copy.

His hypothesis is that a four-day week won't work because the factories would sit idle three days instead of two. Three 10-hour days means a thirty-hour work week, and with two shifts the factories hum six days a week instead of five.

Plus which, if you like the way it is now you can work two shifts for a 60-hour week.

Ah, being submerged must have also protected the Native Tribes & their cultures, who were flushed out by the back up, as the FDR Lake rose. It is good that someone with a caring, loving, white ancestry, still tells the Native Tribes, what is good for them.

4x 8h work week gives 32hrs total. Factories can run 24x7 on three shifts that way. An idling factory is a waste, so instead of having more factories idling more, have fewer factories running 24x7 365. In the silicon wafer industry, the factories run 24x7 365, with the exception of the fall time change. Factory shuts down at 1am and doesn't resume until 2am... 2hrs later when the time falls back. They still haven't solved the problem of an earlier fabrication process showing a later time stamp than the later fabrication process. The company probably loses half a million dollars during that time, but somehow we think daylight wasting time is a good idea.

Agreed. Surely you're not suggesting they were discriminated against. Or not compensated.
Quote:
In 1933, Reclamation began efforts to purchase land behind the dam as far as 151 mi (243 km) upstream for the future reservoir zone. The reservoir, known later as Lake Roosevelt, flooded 70,500 acres (285 km2) and Reclamation acquired an additional 11,500 acres (47 km2) around the future shoreline. Within the zone were eleven towns, two railroads, three state highways, about one hundred and fifty miles of country roads, four sawmills, fourteen bridges, four telegraph and telephone systems, and many power lines and cemeteries. All facilities had to be purchased or relocated, and 3,000 residents were relocated.[47] ... Members of the Colville Confederated and Spokane tribes who had settlements within the reservoir zone were also resettled. The Acquisition of Indian Lands for Grand Coulee Dam Act of June 29, 1940, allowed the Secretary of the Interior to acquire land on the Colville and Spokane Reservations, eventually accounting for 21,100 acres (85 km2).[49] By 1942, all land had been purchased at market value: a cost of $10.5 million that included the relocation of farms, bridges, highways and railroads. Relocation reimbursement was not offered to property owners, which was common until U.S. laws changed in 1958.

Grand Coulee Dam flooded over 21,000 acres (85 km2) of prime bottom land where Native Americans had been living and hunting for thousands of years, forcing the relocation of settlements and graveyards.[90] The Office of Indian Affairs negotiated with the United States Bureau of Reclamation on behalf of tribes who were concerned about the flooding of their grave sites. The Acquisition of Indian Lands for Grand Coulee Dam, 54 Stat.703 Act of June 20, 1940 allowed the Secretary of the Interior to remove human remains to new Native American grave sites. The burial relocation project started in September 1939. Human remains were put into small containers and many artifacts were discovered, but the methods of collection destroyed archaeological evidence.

The part about no salmon ladders in the Upper Columbia was an inopportune decision, but the Salmon cannon hadn''t been invented yet.

Point taken. 'Factories' wasn't the best example. I like the idea of less commuting. And a four-day weekend every week.

I worked alternating 3 and 4 day work weeks, with 12hr shifts. It was nice having 3 to 4 day weekends, but I mostly wasted them being a single guy and a (I'll do it tomorrow) personality.

My commute is currently about 40ft, but I'm back to the 5 (or more) workdays.

I really don't understand why people need to be in an office building. While I miss the face to face interaction with people, we have phone, IM, email, Skype, etc.

Then there's the other factor, that ocean depth has to be just right for coral to grow, so that rising depth makes certain areas unsuitable for coral growth... again, that just means some other area is now made suitable for coral growth.

Pointing out changes in environment isn't a compelling argument. A compelling argument shows that something is lost and not gained back anywhere else.

As I always point out, our direct actions always cause way more disruption than indirect consequences. For instance, oceans fish populations might be affected by temperature changes, but overfishing is an even more severe problem.
The Great Barrier Reef is dying, and it is very likely going away.

It is more than just temperature - it is also increased acidity; which makes it harder and harder for animals with shells to actually form them.

The ocean has been absorbing most of the carbon dioxide, and most of the heat. This inevitably means that it will release that carbon dioxide back out into the air - colder water can absorb more gases than warmer water.

Ocean water already has less oxygen in solution. As it warms, it will lose more and more - so sea animals will die.
