Days 402 – (AD 1,564) – 23.5 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled my Schwinn 170 23.5 miles. My totals are now 33,517.6 miles; 53,941.5 kilometers.

I reached my destination at Aeolis Serpens and continued. My new destination is to the northeast, I think, at Cerebus Tholi. According to Wolfram Alpha the distance between these 2 points is approximately 590 miles.

I continued and pedaled 21.43% or about 3.63% to my new destination and goal point.

How to Break Through a Creative Block”, Lifehacker, by Patrick Allen, April 23, 2018

“Everyone on the panel had something interesting to say, but Walden immediately jumped in with a useful tip that really stuck with me. She said that when she felt stuck, she would intentionally try to draw something as poorly as she could (she mentioned drawing Bart Simpson with her non-dominant hand, among other examples). That action alone would do two things for her: it would get her started on her work with no pressure, easing her into her flow, and it would often motivate her to prove that she could do that thing better.”
Question –

I’m sort of a novice to this issue, but if Sweden incinerates 49.5% of its municipal waste in 2014-15, would it not be a be a feasible possibility if the trash, like the flotsam and jetsam floating in the Pacific Ocean somehow be used up as recyclable energy?

The dark truth behind Sweden’s ‘revolutionary’ recycling schemes”, Independent, by Dominic Hoff, December 13, 2016.

“The confusion that has led to everyone looking at Sweden through rose-tinted spectacles seems to stem from the way incineration of waste is being categorised. Reports praising the country include incineration as a form of recycling, but it isn’t. Indeed, too much incineration capacity can hinder recycling.”

See How Many LEGO Skyscrapers You Could Build With a Year’s Worth of Ocean Plastic Waste”, Time, by Justin Worland and Chris Wilson, April 21, 2018.

“The plastic pollution problem — the theme of this year’s Earth Day — isn’t going away any time soon. Plastic use is expected to double in the next two decades as manufacturers find new and varied uses for the material, according to a report from the World Economic Forum (WEF).”
