Short and sweet. I like it. Perfect for the Twitter age of Attention Defici…
I am trying to figure out a few things using jobs data juxtaposed with energy use data to see if I can make a reasonable argument. We’ll see. My current thought with what little data I have found, uses assumptions for the sake of the thought process. I hope to get more defined data to work with and clarify my theory.
Here’s how it is going though.
Using sector data (perhaps?) I hope to figure out how many jobs are for the sake of money itself, you know accountants, bankers, and such. The office staff, real estate agents, grounds keepers, toilet washers, etc associated by “the sake of money” alone. All the worthless products made and shipped around for the sake of a buck. Compare that info against energy use and figure something out. (shrug)
Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index
The Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index provides the latest estimate of the total energy consumption of the Bitcoin network.
Study reveals Bitcoin’s electricity consumption is underestimated and finds the network “represents close to half of the current global data centre electricity use” (August 2020).
We conservatively estimate the Bitcoin network to consume 87.1 TWh of electrical energy annually per September 30, 2019 (equaling a country like Belgium).
(This is just the computers “mining”. What about the buildings, staff and restaurants or janitors? etc…
To start I assume half, as a modest theory, of everything humans do is for the sake of money itself and therefore half of the energy we use is wasted for the sake of money. As part of my mission to rid the planet of money I hope to make arguments in all possible ways.
Perhaps a more focused forum for debate ?
I will continue to fine tune my rhetoric and share my vision.
Time is running out.
