The concept of living a truly green lifestyle is beyond comprehension to most city folks, and even those who understand it and yearn for it may enjoy it only for brief periods. My friend has an important job in the city, surrounded by tar and cement and millions of cars.  The city tries hard to supply some greenery, and the city’s vegetables are trucked in each morning so life is not too bad. But every Friday afternoon the outlets to the hills and countryside are jammed with traffic and they have to come back to city life for Monday.  The feel and smell and taste, and even a glimpse of true green lifestyle is beyond reach, beyond the senses, and, in its true essence, beyond imagination.

But my friend comes from a rural community where green lifestyle is the only way of life.  He goes back there when he can.  Recently he took me.  Some of the details he pointed out are why city folk can only slap green paint over their polluted, polluting lifestyle.  His dad planted the lychee tree 60 years ago.  The chickens and ducks supply just enough eggs and meat for the family of 6 live there.  The grain comes from 6 mu of fertile land that does not use artificial pesticides.  The vegetables on the table are home grown.  The air and water are clean.  How many dollar millionaires can enjoy this green lifestyle, and how often and for how long?

The miracle of greenery is that it traps electromagnetic forces from the sun and from the chemical bonds in water, and stores them within carbohydrates that we then eat, releasing these forces for the our body to be maintained, to grow and to move about.  We can quantify human actions by estimating how many times a carbon atom in food breaks oxygen molecules that we breathe. The number for an average person for a day in the number 1 followed by 25 zeroes.  The basic fact that typically an average person has about half a kilogram of food a day consisting mostly of carbohydrates can be understood as the need for 200 grams of carbon atoms to unleash the required bond forces from oxygen.

Measuring human activity by the number of oxygen molecules broken by carbon is a very useful analytic tool.  It can serve as an objective universal currency.  The phenomenon is ubiquitous, from breathing, living, moving, to lighting fire, to all factory processes and global industry.  Atoms are incomprehensibly small and the coulombic attractions between positive proton and negative electrons are even more of a mystery – invisible, wavelike and untrackable.  Yet in a set of units that are anachronistic and of dubious justification, the numbers comparing bond strengths actually show the force released.  The number for a bond strength between two oxygen atoms in the air is 118 and when carbon locks in on oxygen the bond is 191.  The difference is a force dissipated in all directions, but because they are in the trillions of trillions, given the right circumstances, able to be harnessed and used.  That force is what makes up human activity.

Rather than call the difference 73 calories, we can just count one bond exchange as a single unit and measure them in tranches of some huge multitude – maybe trillion trillion (ie 1018)  and make each tranche some money name, in the same vein as penny or dollar.  We can call them “oxycarbs” (氧碳) referring to the oxygen’s bond with oxygen trading up to stronger bond with carbon. The exciting fact is this currency is not made up by governments, but is true reflection of reality.   All lifestyle was green until it was found that the trade in swapping  oxygen with carbon which led to a profitable force release could not only be sourced from live vegetation, but the carbon in fossil fuels.  The exchange was not only for eating and living, not just for fires to warm and cook, but to enter into complex processes that burgeoned to be the Industrial Revolution. The combustion in furnaces in one year became next year’s capital equipment, at first ploughs, then steam engines and then billions of tons of new products.

Europeans began in about 1750 exploiting the fact that carbon in fossil fuels could also release the bond force in oxygen.  Within fifty years the leafy sprawling towns of north west England transformed cottage industries into acres of blackened foundries and metal mills, pocked by coal mines.  The per capita oxygen bond break count went up a thousand times.  Instead of an annual carbon cycle and oxygen break-and-remake limited to above ground greenery, a once-only extraction of fossil fuels– about 70% carbon atoms – began and spread around the world.

The dream and desire for a “green lifestyle” can be traced to when societies started to have black lifestyles.  “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”.

A simple sketch shows the vast difference between green lifestyle and modern fossil-dependent existence. Based on studies of idyllic green lifestyle in a village in Guangxi, Du An Yao County 1989, and the unsustainable fossil-dependent case of Hebei, Han Dan City 2015, the daily per capita trade up from oxygen-oxygen to oxygen-carbon bonds was 1 x 1025 for Du An Man and 1.2 x 1028 for Han Dan Man.  The ecological footprint of the former is small and above ground, while the latter is a thousand times greater.  Every day that amount of carbon is brought to the surface and emitted into the air, already stifling after decades of abuse.

Contemplating the true meaning of a green lifestyle leads to two conclusions which should change what economists and policy advisors are saying.

  1. Any financial solution is unhinged from reality. The chemical bonds exchanged between carbon and oxygen may be tiny and invisible but they cannot be made up. If plans were made beginning with chemical accounting of the bonds available, borrowing would be a very sobering experience.
  2. Secondly, the mantra of growth stridently promoted now without challenge would be silenced if where growth was to take place was penciled into this simple sketch. We are already overgrown and bloated, choking on what we are doing to our surroundings.  Pubescent growth is admirable.  Maturity leads to enjoyment on a plane of what has been achieved in basic material benefits.   When economists gloat with glee over growth in the health care sector, be sure that society is very sick.

Current “growth” policies planned in how much money is spent and “made” are taking us further way from any return to a green lifestyle.  Counting the oxygen bonds broken is an accounting method that reveals the nakedness of the proponents of financial growth models.
