  1. Thank you so much for this excellent article. When we calculate military carbon fuel use, we must calculate the parades, fly-byes and political pomposity. A wise ruler might permit only carbon-free displays… a smart Congress would require it. An informed citizenry would clean all this up. And a sensitive mass media would fearlessly call attention to it. No worries because, ruthless adherance to the physical consequences that will um, uh, trump everything. No lets say that inevitably, thermodynamic laws will dominate all obstacles. We are lucky to live in the Anthropocene — an endlessly interesting, ironic epoch.
