He's talking about a one time gain unless they cut down the trees and remove them from the carbon cycle every few decades and replant.
Maybe we can bury them all in a nice bog so eventually the remnants of society can have an easy to find coal deposit to jumpstart their own industrial revolution.
Wind power and efficient cooling with the right refrigerants have recurrent benefits
Exactly! Therefore, automatic sprinklers.
You might be able find some info on the frequency of house fires vs apartment fires if you tried.
It's also interesting to pick a local news site, search "apartment fire" and see what comes up - in my area there were a bunch of "1 or 2 units burned, 2 or 3 more damaged by smoke" reports, and the fires that destroyed a whole building were much less common and were unoccupied or known to be in violation of fire codes. So the precautions seem to reduce the risk of your neighbors bad cooking burning your precious stuff up.
As to longevity, I live in one that is about 20 years old, and the place creaks just a bit when the upstairs neighbors fill the bathtub. I used to live in one that was about 30 years old but the complete and total lack insulation in the walls made other structural complaints seem silly.
Went to the dentist for three fillings this morning, and now I'm at work beginning to get a headache.
I'm learning some C# so that I can understand the modifications some engineers made in the simulation software we use and hopefully join them on more interesting projects.
Last night in bed half asleep I decided to leave myself a note about cornbread. I pasted Wikipedia links, recipes and references to northern/southern/texas varieties, johnny cakes, hoe cakes, cornpone, and hot water cornbread.
I guess I was hungry.
I think I'm gonna buy another sack of cornmeal and try out some recipes. Maybe I'll post "the cornbread variations" grubski in a couple weeks.
I work with few guys who worked at BAE systems who still defend that system a bit. They weren't even part of the design, just hired on when they were in the 'work out the bugs and optimize the system' phase of the debacle.

- It was a wonderful system. Much more advanced than the systems built today. Very fast. They shut it down and did everything manual because the cost to keep it running was too high. It's still there if you are ever underneath the terminal. Look up and there are the carts - probably still full of lost baggage.
I think they are currently re-automating it, but with the most conventional sort of baggage handling equipment.
Happy New year!
I'm back to work today after a week and a half off. It's ok.
It's uncomfortable to run after eating too many cookies and pies, so i took a full two week break from exercise. Probably a mistake since I am signed up for a half-marathon in less than 8 weeks. I will be so slow.
Christmas was nice but chaotic. Parents and in-laws are both less than an hour away so we dida huge amount of driving back and forth the whole time.
But beans be precious precarious
