About policing energy for PoW:

I don't understand professional sports. I cannot see why people want to spend time and money on seeing others play. Why do we as society permit energy being burned on flying teams and fans around, building stadiums, all for... entertainment?!

The above is a sincerely held belief; I truly find it astonishing that people care about seeing sports to that extent. I see why people want to play sports, perhaps, or even learn from others better than them. Professional sports are not that, though.

Still no reason to ban it.

Note that I am not trying to downplay anything. Bitcoin uses a lot of energy, and is expected to continue doing so at least while the subsidy lasts. Humans contribute to climate change, and this will be a problem which needs solutions. Policing how people use energy is not one.
