the least cynical way to depopulate the planet is by promoting the anti-birth methods (i.e. giving contraceptives for free for everyone and legalizing abortion worldwide) and establishing laws that punish people who has more than two children
but people are way too dumb to even understand that preventing the development a fetus != killing a human being, so whatever, the world is going to get more and more populated just because morons think that more babies won't have a negative socioeconomical repercussion in the future

You are correct. So far most of the ice melting has been floating sea ice, so little impact on sea levels as of yet. There is plenty of ice over land however, that will significantly raise sea levels when it melts.

But if you look at the OP pic, no significant patches of new land appeared when the ice melted, which means it was all mostly sea ice.

The vast majority of the ice in OP's pic is sea ice. Never in the post you replied to does it state or imply only sea ice melts. It only (correctly) states that only ice that sits on land contributes to raising sea level, also already floating in water will not change sea levels when it melts.

Thermal expansion has contributed more to rising sea levels than melting ice has so far. It isn't that there is more water, just that water is getting more THICC.

That depends on where you live.

If you've ever moved everywhere, you know it's a huge pain in the ass. When whole cities are doing that at the same time, it's really going to suck.

That's not apocalyptic, but it does mean a lower quality of life for millions if not billions.

Nobody really knows what impact climate change would/ might have.
For all we know, the sudden temperature rise will whip-saw and cause temperatures to plummet because of increased cloud cover albedo from oceanic evaporation or something.

Best solution, we automate the economy so we can sterilize the now purposeless former labor pool. Maybe keep 500 million people around, let the rest go on welfare in exchange for mandatory sterilization and let the few people who have jobs that cannot be automated reproduce. Or make it a lottery or something. Either way the carbon emission problem would vanish in a generation or so, sooner with more proactive methods.

Population growth is overstated. The doomsday scenarios of past generations have not panned out because as societies advance, population growth slows naturally.

But you do have a point, which is why it's best not to compound the problem. You're right that competition will be an issue, but it will be exacerbated if we have to abandon large chunks of civilization and start over.

Best carbon capture method is enhanced weathering.
So buy some limestone boulders from a quarrying company and smash it into dust with a sledgehammer in your freetime.

>> No.9769337

>>9769326
doing so would almost certainly produce more co2 than is captured because of extra calories (food/energy) required to do the actual work (smashing). 2nd law is a bitch, but hey dont let that dissuade you from your fixation with growth.

>> No.9769353

>>9769337
With enhanced weathering the energy used to sequester the carbon comes from the oxidization of the rocks, less so the smashing.
So it's an entropic process, which is why it's the best because the universe loves entrophy.

i still think when you add everything up it would be a net loss, maybe not as bad as burying algae or something like that but still. even when both processes use the suns energy... just gives one an appreciation for how much energy really does come from fossils

>> No.9769402

>>9769363
If you were to crush up carbonate rocks with power from diesel engine, it would still sequester more carbon than the diesel engine could emit. You can think of the rocks as a sort of fossil store of potential energy and it releases that energy as it undergoes oxidation.
Not saying it's practical, but it's energy efficient, (from our practical standpoint) at least.
The joke is the idea of anon doing his part to save the world by smashing rocks in his backyard with a hammer.

and youre absolutely sure about that...

>> No.9769435

>>9769414
Yes. Normally you'd be right about it violating the laws of physics, but since silicates have a higher energy than carbonates, about 80% of the energy required to sequester the carbon is done by the rocks, basically. If a typical diesel engine converts 40% of it's fuel into useful work, its still a net sequestering of carbon.

You can google all this if you're that curious.

>> No.9769451

>>9769435
even if youre right on the 20% margin, you still need to get the rocks AND the fuel to the engine, build the engine, maintain the engine, disperse the carbonate dust, and feed the guy who operates the engine

>>9769451
If this were entirely about energy you'd be right but this is specifically about expending energy to sequester carbon. Also, embodied energy of a device like a diesel engine is tiny on a long enough timeline. The energy used to have a diesel engine set up crushing rocks is tiny compared to the energy it would use crushing rocks for say, 20 years or whatever arbitrarily long timeline you can suppose.

That would disperse quickly. A huge IR reflector would do, using solar sails to balance between gravity and solar pressure. Possible but hard.
