4 It will come, no doubt, as no surprise that Other Fredo disagrees with the decision that he should return the money.

5 Those scientists are bullshit.

The way moderns and environmentalists do forestry in the US involves letting stuff build up until even the trees that would normally survive fires will burn down.

6 In fairness to the marxist ideologues pasing as scientists, trees actually are a carbon sink.  Not that this has any effect on "climate change", but I'm not really here to discuss satanic religions.  Also, we have more trees in the US now than when the pilgrims landed.

7 Best way to use trees as a carbon sink is to grow them, cut them down, and build stuff out of them.  Those guys can't quite make it past step one though.

8 "Other ideas in Concept Luna are more focused on the climate impact of electronics. The aluminum in the chassis is smelted using hydropower energy, replacing what is often one of the dirtiest manufacturing steps with a low-carbon alternative."

Alumi[n[i]]um refining has pretty much been associated with hydropower since the first large-scale refinery opened near the Niagara hydropower plant in 1895, so I'm not really sure what they're bragging about here.

9 Electricity, like money, is fungible. Once on the grid, current is current. But it has become the trend lately to perform logical twists, with the support of your local utility, saying "sure, I'm drawing anonymous electrons from the grid, which may very well have been charged from the nasty coal plant over there. But I've communicated my desire to be green to the utility, and paid them a small premium, so they promise me that no, my 10 gigawatt hours per year of current is allocated from the hydropower plant at the other end of the grid that produces 30 gw/hours per year, and it's other dirty consumers using the 40 gigawatt hours produced by the coal plant."
We will ignore that several such utilities have been caught over-subscribing consumers to these programs, and promising many more gw hours of clean hydropower than the plant is capable of producing...

10 At a household level, electricity might be fungible, but when you're pulling a few MW, you might have to think about where you build your plant.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
