Kim Jung Un is making a killing off Bitcoin. Guess there must be something to it if a world leader like him is profiting.

Another day another dollar.....
Oh yeah, and another depression Debbie downer report from the environmental sustainability desk

You realize that your now forgoing all pretense of responsibility for the abatement of CO2 level rise in order to make a buck. Much like drilling in ANWR, pipeline construction and mountain top removal for coal, climate denial, etc...

As I say, I know my investments have lead to environmental degradation and questionable social benefits so I can't criticize. Just rounding out the whole picture of what goes into those spendolies your making. This product is negating efforts to replace coal with renewable, IMHO.

I've been looking to De-carbonize my small investment nest egg and have used a site that allows you to search your stock or investment fund. The site compares your investment to it's peers and gives it a carbon rating within it's investment class. It's my new years resolution to change my funds to less fossil fuel driven ones.
I have a magnet on my fridge that reads 'Save the planet, kill yourself". It's a baseline for what would help.

Mr. Rick you have nothing to lose by remaining in Bitcoin until it plays out to wherever itís heading. So if I were you I would indeed hang on to it. Itís not like if you lose your original investment you are going to be financially wiped out. Yet for a newbie todays prices are a different matter. Or at least more of a risk.

I just heard some guy on CNBC weigh in on Bitcoin. His thought was that the early investors in the cryptocurrency think the sky is the limit while non investors think itís a soon to be popping bubble.

Just as he observed that Trump voters think our current chugging economy is mainly due to his election by its unleashing of ďanimal spiritsĒ while Hillary voters think we are in a soon to pop economic bubble.

I thought that was a shrewd observation that made a lot of sense.

"The total energy use of this web of hardware is hugeóan estimated 31 terawatt-hours per year. More than 150 individual countries in the world consume less energy annually. And that power-hungry network is currently increasing its energy use every day by about 450 gigawatt-hours, roughly the same amount of electricity the entire country of Haiti uses in a year"

I believe this product will answer the question of wether it is better to live stupid or live smart.
With it's projected energy consumption rate of growth we should be solidly on the road to a terminal species event.

Bitcoin seems to be the perfect metaphor for mankinds deepest flaws.
