Wow that’s wild. My immediate thought was of how airplanes used to have smoking on board and how she was probably around for that. Didn’t realize that practice didn’t officially end until 2000.

Finding an alternative to the blast furnace process will pay higher dividends. Concrete can be recycled through RAPs (reclaimed asphalt pavements) and other such recycling. Plastics degrade too much over time to be used and reused.

You might be interested to look into something called the Milankovitch Cycle. It’s an attempt to sequester certain factors leading to global climate change that range from human activity, to the angle at which the earth rotates.

There’s a lot of room for error in this analysis, but it’s still interested nevertheless.

Ecological engineering is an increasingly growing field. Some colleges will have it as a sub category of environmental/civil engineering.

Those are both incredibly curated links. Domestic terrorism isn’t a legally recognized term, even though it very much should be. As of now, the only term officially recognized by the US government is plan ol’ terrorism, defined as follows...

"premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience."

If you take a look at the right wing terrorism list you commented about, you’ll see that all but a few of those incidents included deaths, and the ones that didn’t often had severe injuries associated with them, or had no deaths and no injuries. If you don’t have violence, you don’t have terrorism, full stop. If you do have violence, it isn’t always terrorism, full stop.

If you honestly believe that only two incidents from extreme leftists fit the bill, then you’re misguided. If you honestly believe that those are the only incidents of terrorism by the extreme right, you’re also misguided.
