there are a few schools of thought on that subject. Schoppenhauer believes in and preaches causality, while Plato + Socrates talk about "our reality being a shadow/projection of true reality due to the inherent nature of current human perception". Nietzsche talks about futility and the idea that causality cannot be influenced and is perhaps all pre-destination (Luther to some extent and King Solomon and Augustine of Hippo and many, many religious figures seem to think pre-destination is the way to aptly describe the living world around us. Of course scientists like to study nature through the tools we have, and like to create new tools to better study and try to figure out the plausible margin for error, and thus side more with Plato/Socrates in that we experience and measure a shadow of reality, although as far as we know, our measurements are pretty damn close (at least until we discover/think up some way to show that our methodology of determining margin of error were WAY off - which we [scientists and/or philosophers] probably will do soon).

I guess it comes down to belief: if you believe we live in a deterministic reality (able to be precisely measured with 0% error - even if it only will happen in a few millennia) then causality would probably be part of your belief system. If you believe either we inherently lack the sufficient physical capacity to truly measure a hypothetical deterministic reality or you believe we cannot ever truly measure reality, deterministic or not, because we are PART of the reality and therefore cannot measure ourselves or various forms of this statement, like Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle or New Age Spiritualism (basically Uncertainty Principle described via the unseen and "unkowable") then you're likely a scientist and/or atheist and/or Plato/Socrates-ist (for lack of a better term).

I hope that made sense and my MDMA flashes aren't taking over too much.

Damn, your posts make it it seem like taking lots of LSD can make you a great philosopher. I have tried to solve some of my own thoughts with Mush and LSD, and was being able to contemplate relations between humans and environment, afterlife, the fact that our perceptions of time and our senses are the biggest lies ever. But I've never gone further than one tab. Did you have divine/mystical experiences?

30-50 years to reach the stratosphere depending on the specific compound. This is simply production rates. Which means that the ozone holes should be growing as peak production of these halocarbons was in the 1980's. But we are not.

As I already stated, ozone has more to do with global warming than the greenhouse gasses we can control.

There are two "types"of ozone.

The first has been present 30 kms high since life came into existence and O2 got into the atmosphere.

The second is ozone that is being produced on ground level from traffic, printers and other man-made sources. This is the type that we humans are indeed adding to the total amount of ozone, and can cause increased greenhouse effect. As well as effects on health, and the self cleaning capacity of the atmosphere. This type is probably what you're talking about?

Most countries don't have an electricity tax. It's a tad bit of a silly thing to have in the first place, unless your government wanted your consumers to save electricity for other reasons, like, the military or industrial purposes.

Yeah, that specific tax doesn't even exist in most countries.

In Germany it is the same. Otherwise our public transport(99% electric, without planes ofc) would collapse and our car manufacturers would leave the country.

I said most, not all. And that's the reason why the tax is structured like that: Companies in those countries would not be able to compete with foreign countries if they were taxed highly on electricity.

As someone in accounting, companies don't get electricity all that much cheaper than individuals do.
#15 - theuntakenusername (08/30/2016) [-]
For smaller companies in the netherlands the tax rate was at some point at least some 3x smaller. That is already a significant gain. Do you agree that the current system is ethically corrupted? We are heavily relying on industry and data networks that depend on consuming large amounts of energy. What's the point in taxing households, if people still pollute by buying automobiles that were produced with only .004% of the fiscal burden? I'm no financial man, but it seems like this could get a major overhaul.
