/ef/ - Everfree

A general discussion board with a laxer atmosphere and fewer rules. Keep adult content or controversial issues here.
Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Why do Democrats hate ICE so much? In my estimation, if we had taken the money that we invested in electric cars and instead invested in nuclear fusion and carbon sequestration technology, we would be a lot better off. When we have cost-effective nuclear fusion and carbon sequestration, it doesn't matter if everyone drives a car powered by a good old-fashioned internal-combustion engine.

lol

Glad that's solved, then.

If nuclear fusion had been funded better, it might actually have been solved already.

We should all come over to my place and touch some dry ice.

If and mights don't actually amount to a whole lot, when the collective field has been a decade away from solving fusion for several decades.

Also, isn't carbon sequestration generally speaking impractical on a conceptual level?

I mean you're talking about potentially literal millions of tons of carbon, that you're going to have to pull out of the atmosphere somehow, a process which not only requires energy (that you then have to somehow source responsibly), you also have to have a place to put the carbon.

There are no natural mechanisms that perform this kind of work on a useful timescale.

That's what the nuclear fusion is for.

>>333968
That article is 8 years old. There have been advances since then, e.g.:
http://carbon.ycombinator.com/ocean-phytoplankton/
http://carbon.ycombinator.com/electro-geo-chemistry/
http://carbon.ycombinator.com/cell-free-systems/
http://carbon.ycombinator.com/desert-flooding/

These are definitely not advances, the projects are all complete pipe dreams and this reflects in the proposed methods. Using gmo algae or cell free enzymes on a wide scale like this is incredibly reckless. You run the risk of introducing a disruptive organism to the environment, worse, to an environment in which genes are frequently exchanged between organisms. If the self perpetuating carbon sequestration can't be contained, you run the risk of another ice age.

This kind of wide scale bioengineering is only appealing on its surface. Renewable energy is a non-intrusive solution that we already know works and have countless working examples of.

The prospect of fusion is also so uncertain that just gambling on it working within the next 20 years when you hardly have a working model seems equally reckless.

Sometimes I feel like the entirety of pchan has just played too much factorio.

Subsidies on electric vehicles are not the problem

<Factorio is a construction and management game focused on resource-gathering with real-time strategy and survival elements.
I never have, but i might start.
Sounds pretty fun.

The endgame of Factorio is to make assembly lines that fuel themselves, sort the items themselves and manage your entire facility on their own, so you can sit on your ass and marvel at your creation.

It's amazing. I used to play it.

Hope you enjoy tedious long hours of work as alien lifeforms attack you from time to time.

It does sound a lot like my idea of sex, so...

Sure, it is pretty fun. When I first got it I got lost in a pretty hefty binge, so just be ready for that.
