Fake News Or Propaganda?
I’m so mad I could spit!
Zero Deforestation By 2020s
Is he on drugs? To achieve any significant bio negative-carbon energy, we need 1 billion acres of new farmland, that’s about the size of India and about 50% of the arable land on earth. Just to feed humanity for 50 years, we need 12 million acres of new soil every year for 30 years, but we are losing 24 million acres of soil each year. To get 100% renewable electricity, we would need new land about the size of Argentina just for the bio-energy component. Where will this new land come from? Forests, that’s where. Northern Europe gets 50% of it renewable energy burning wood pellets from around the world.
No Gas Cars By 2035
If 3 of your neighbours all plug in electric cars at night, they’ll likely blow the neighborhood transformer box. Switching electric power generation to renewable energy will take 50 years and mega-tons of emissions. Adding cars to the electric system will require additional trillions of dollars and take decades to accomplish.
Best Practice In Agriculture
I almost choked on my toast laughing when I read this. Cows and humans have caused 80% of land species extinctions. We are burning rainforests just to feed cows and pigs all over the world. Indonesia’s rainforests will soon be all gone thanks to palm oil, which Europeans burn in cars. China’s pigs eat half the soy grown in South America each year. When people think humanity will stop eating meat and wasting food to save the planet, then they are childishly naïve.
Zero Emissions Buildings
This is like the zero point energy rage of a few years ago. In 30 years, 80% of humanity will crowd into cities and 75% of the infrastructure they require does not exist. Buildings account for 50% of human emissions. Water demand will soon exceed supply. Most of these new urban people will be very young. Can you imagine the chaos?
No New Coal Plants
Yeah, like that never gets old. Besides, new coal plants won’t count if we use the magic of Carbon Capture & Storage. I call this lateral magical thinking. Coal plants are being replaced by natural gas plants. If natural gas is a bridge to the future, then we are burning that bridge right now, along with the hospitals, schools, women and children in Aleppo. The reason we are killing women and children in Syria is so that the Saudis and Qataris can get rich selling gas to Europe. You know, the same Europe where these ivory tower assholes write this shit.
Glass Half Full: Do you see coal demand going up 30% in 25 years?
Climate scientists are like the news media, they live in an abstract unreal world. They don’t live in the real world. They fly in jets and live in hotels. Yes, you can add 2 billion plus 2 billion to equal 4 billion, but you can’t even get 10 people to do the right thing, let alone 6 billion people. Whenever these guys write this elitist shit, I just picture the bombed out hospitals in Aleppo, while the executive director of Greenpeace flies to yet another climate conference. You cannot fly in airplanes and not believe in your own bullshit, that you are making a difference.
Without 100% private carbon tax dividend credits in a new world e-currency, we’re fucked. Nation states are predatory capitalists that only a new world carbon currency can circumvent. Whoops! There I go again, indulging in yet more elitist bullshit fantasy.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled program…
