  1. @nerthos But ultimately, the question is, is it so goddamned hard to look where you're dropping kiwi? Or keep your customer's mess in their yard? Basic respect. Show one move's worth of forethought for those around you.

  2. @nerthos Yeah, I'd thought about it for shade, but it didn't turn up necessary. Now that they're done, I expect that's it. They basically butchered the trees. :-/

  10. @nerthos I think some of this makes sense, but I have a hard time believing that the world's current population level isn't sustainable, just that we haven't figured things out yet. There's a lot of junk produced that isn't necessary, or made in inefficient ways that could be cut out. I get what you're saying about deglobalization and the whole "buy local" slogan that environmentalists have been pushing kind of points back to that. Where do you draw the line though? Even goods shipped within larger countries like the US or China can travel vast distances before reaching their destination. Do those countries have to be split into regions then? People would probably be freaking out about that. No more California oranges in PA? No way! Probably not a great example due to Florida being closer, but still.

  11. @thismightbeauser So you not only need to completely reshape the economy of most countries but also need to regulate the population of each to levels their own land can sustain (without further destroying the environment to grow more crops)
    Some countries have a food surplus of 10 times their internal consumption, so they can keep their current populations without issue. But what happens with a country that has a food deficit of say, 50% of consumption? the population has to be cut in half or starve. Either way, you have a disaster in your hands with no clean way to solve it. You can pick between genocide, mass starvation or civil war, neither acceptable by any humanitarian standard. And you can be sure it'll spill to neighbouring regions.

    In short, environmental damage is such a big issue because there's no clean way of solving it, nations and fortunes depend on the wheel spinning, and genociding the world to a sustainable population numbers is off the table.

  12. @nerthos Would setting fire to Asia actually be so bad though? The Chernobyl exclusion zone is supposedly thriving ecologically.

  13. @nerthos The one nation that might be able to pull themselves off this mess is ironically Russia, as they have been consistently ensuring their economical stability and independence through hard backing of their currency for the last decade, and have enough of an arsenal to deter any military intervention.

  28. @nerthos Here is a stupid idea... Try hairspray.

    Nono, not on them, remove them first and then see if hairsprayed components inhitbit their growth.

    Also, have you considered that it is not fungus you are dealing with but some form of oxydation ?

  29. @nerthos Well, I doubt it would survive a bath of 99% isopropyl alcohol.

    Oh, also, note : do not drink that.

  30. @nerthos Anyway, as I was trying to say, tried anything temperature or oxygen based? Freeze/nuke, suffocate, whatever?
