Of course, the Hindenburg was Hydrogen #1. Thanks for noticing.

Sound money is key. Sound money trades for real value.

Managing our current Federal Reserve system of "legal tender" credit is but promissory notes chasing goods & services. No money. This is badly managed; carbon credits are a derivative on top to badly managed "legal tender." I suggest we rid ourselves of both. No Fed Notes. No carbon credits.

Why waste money buying & selling a new form of thin air? Carbon debits & credits?

The promise of paper Dollars pretending to be backed by gold... gold certificates... ended for US citizens in 1933~ 1934. Paper Dollars pretending to be backed by silver ended completely in 1965. gold certificates for foreign central banks ended in 1971 (See President Nixon speech: US temporarily closes gold window ).

Neither faith based paper-money nor carbon trading coupons will have intrinsic value. They are promises that someone else will pay. Both continue the racket of allowing someone to monetize a promise out of thin air.

Inflation is the increase of the money-supply. Every Dollar (whether loaned or carbon credited) into existence is inflation. If goods & services expand at the same rate as money-supply few realize those creating the money (by printing, crediting, or carboning) get a free ride.

Yes. The Hindenburg was filled with Hydrogen #1. Helium, as with all other elements, has vast potential energy. The US cornered (controlled) the Helium market. Helium is preferred for airships as it is less volatile compared to hydrogen. Interesting story.
