  1. Re: your recent Forbes article “Best News On Climate You Never Heard: “Per capita” measures are a BS way to measure climate change mitigation efforts when population is increasing by ~81 million per year and carrying capacity is maybe 4 billion tops. Increasing population cancels out most mitigation efforts, sometimes within mere hours or days.
    Example: 10 people (5 couples) cause 50 tons of ghg per year each (way low estimate)
    (10×50=500 tons/year total)

    Improvements reduce the “per capita” amount to 40 tons per year each
    (10×40=400 tons/year total)

    But 2 of those couples have 2 kids,
    adding 4 people to the existing 10
    Now at 14 people x 40 tons per year each =
    560 tons/year total
