RT @MorganTBennettVolcano-Powered Bitcoin Mining in El Salvador must be the dumbest story of the last days.
El Salvador is densely populated and largely powered by oil. Only 3.4% are geothermal.
Consuming additional renewable energy in this setting has the same effect as burning oil directly.
@FranckLeroy It really is a death cult, isn’t it?
@aral Yep, death cult wrapped into technical voodoo.
@FranckLeroy @aral you need to mash the word togather and add a hash #deathcult and yes it realy is.
@FranckLeroy @aral to take this a bit further if you look at meany #mainstreaming things from the prospective of #climatechaos and #XR you can call them a #deathcult and not be an "extremist"
