Yeah let's stop professionals from talking, that's too scientific method for us, we are more about believing, like a religion, a cult, we don't like science wen it doesn't work for us, let's censor anyone that talks about facts before the TV does, everyone knows that's where the absolute truth comes from.
@sotolf I don't really see the point of this, I mean, is not up to bitcoin to be green. Is up to governments to implement rules on industries that create pollution or not. This situation should be improved but possible will be a reason to eradicate the benefits of the technology other than to have another motive to improve the state of things, mainly how energy is produced. And articles like this say clearly that the pressure should be on technology other than in govs to create positive change.
@bkhan While I can see that the "big 3" are wasteful I also understand that money based on gold also comes with environment cost and money based on nothing but numbers on a screen and printed papers are as ponzi scheme as its possible to be. But any of this is going away so I would rather support cleaner forms of energy production for it and keep the benefits than say its all bad and must be stopped, because that's silly, is only serving what govs/bakers want and its listening to propaganda.
