       Malaysia is now dealing with bitcoin issues, with a steamroller
       July 20th, 2021
       ----------------------------------------
       
       Sarawakian authorities have seized just over a thousand bitcoin mining
       rigs and ran them over with a steamroller. Rightly so.
       
 (MOV) An entertaining video of the steamroller in action was on YouTube.
       
       I can barely even begin to expound on the myriad of ethical issues that
       bitcoin raises, but the biggest one which I have an issue with is its
       extreme energy use... It uses so much power, even compared with its
       contemporaries, that it has driven folks mining for it to steal power...
       Likewise the high power usage results in very high emissions of carbon
       dioxide. Just what we need, more global heating and climate chaos.
