The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt. US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.

Yes, from an environmentalist standpoint, Thanos was right. If you want to save biodiversity on the planet the only answer is to slaughter all humans below the tropic of cancer (everything above is already destroyed and birth rates above it are below replacement) and ban people from living below that line.

I moreso was referring to his "it’s a simple calculus. This universe is finite, its resources, finite. If life is left unchecked, life will cease to exist." riff.

Pres. Trump has signed an executive order waiving environment protection regulations from a vast array of construction projects. Republicans railed against executive orders in the Obama era, calling them an unconstitutional power-grab. They have not objected to the more than 150 executive orders Pres. Trump has signed

Turns out Thanos was right.

I didn't expect to watch the whole movie but I sure didn't turn it off until the end. So pretty compelling.
Some of the rhetorical devices used are heavy handed, but I thought the overall message is good to be reminded of.

Lately I've been especially enjoying my morning coffee thinking how lucky I am to have it.
This all kinda feels like the last party on Earth. Things are going to get a lot worse and who knows how many hundreds or how many thousands of years it'll take to recover.
I don't share the views of the film's last chapter.
I don't think humans are going to be capable of organizing to collectively stop living beyond our means before immense suffering due to climate change takes full effect.

If Americans are on the brink of civil war because of wearing masks, you know we are not going to band together to save the Earth.

You're totally correct, so I would put forth that is the wrong argument. Maybe we should be framing it as "We economically destroy Russia, China, and Iran by converting to domestically produced low carbon energy ensuring another century of American domination".

Looking at the gray smoke, does that mean the kid is going to be non-binary?
