erm, korea is one of the biggest shipbuilders in the world thanks to companies like hyundai. it has gigantic steelworks. it also has significant domestic petrochemicals production – which is in turn exported to places like china, vietnam, india, etc, as materials. if australia can shift their 'exported' co2 emissions onto the consuming nations' balance sheets, can't korea in turn with their high-emitting petrochemicals sector?
Not so much energy intensive production though.
you truly are a fucking berk. i mean, who even are daewoo, hyundai and samsung, anyway?
you have shown time and time again that you don't know anything about the country. you think it's a hermit kingdom in south-east asia which only produces glossy k-pop stars, evidently.
not to mention, again, to repeat at laborious length, that the entire assumption of your argument – that i am responsible for the economic profile of korea, or its energy infrastructure, when i'm a digital nomad skimming along the surface of things here for a mere 18 months – is risibly stupid. my personal responsibility for their steelworks or coal-powered industries is, erm, yeah. what do you get when you shave an iota?
it's funny. for years you promoted the gospel of 'personal responsibility'. but as soon as we scrutinize your actual lifestyle, the things you take for granted, the daily energy uses of your suburban, import-heavy, car-driving, daily commuting ilfestyle ... suddenly the personal responsibility thing vanishes into the ozone layer, and we're talking instead about 'iron ore refining' and 'steelworks'.
i guess there's only so far you can parlay the smugness from not eating meat (because you don't like the taste, lmao) whilst ignoring, uh, everything else about your lifestyle that is objectively world-toppingly high on co2/capita costs.
Seems like people like you use too much electricity, stop it.
In 2019, [in Korea] about 54% of electricity consumption came from industries, 26% from commercial and service sector enterprises, 14% from the residential sector, and 7% from other sectors such as transportation and agriculture.
wowsers, me in my studio apartment taking up a giant slice of that '14% residential' electricity consumption profile, i'm sure. lmao.
sorry but you're really going to have to find a different line of attack rather than accusing a digital nomad who lives in tiny studio apartments, out of a suitcase, with only a laptop and a mobile phone to his name, of somehow being a 'high electricity user'.
derp derp derp
