This isn't exactly what I was getting at. More like, there are xxb/trillion dollars per year that goes into currency management. All that money is spent by people on stuff and all that stuff has a cost in terms of emissions. So you need to compare that carbon cost to the carbon cost of bitcoin and then you start to have a rational argument against bitcoin on an emissions basis. This title is all smoke and mirrors - it seems to provide a rational position against bitcoin, but it does not.
