The State of The State of Emergency
Let’s just say I invented a magical electricity source that was 100% emissions free, the size of an iphone, lasted forever, all for $100.00. Not only would I be richer than the Rosthschilds, I would be a god. Right up there with Jesus, Mohamed and Moses, or even Gates, Bezos and Zuckerberg. All 6 media corporations would line up to kiss my ass.
The only problem is that electricity is only 20% of total world energy demand and the carbon disruption from all the “green growth” from my magical device would send a pulse of growth emissions that would blow our carbon budget all to hell. We think we are green because we don’t understand how energy rich we are. Not only is energy poverty coming, but energy will get dirtier and dirtier even as China pollutes its air shipping more and more solar panels and wind turbines worldwide.
100% total world energy transitions take several decades to do. We still burn wood but nowadays call it green energy. Northern Europe gets 60% of its “renewable electricity” by deforesting the whole planet. Pellets are shipped there from all over the world. Then when a small bush grows back in the clear cut we say, “Oh look! The forest is back.” Deforestation rates are a lie based on the definition of “forest”. We replace the clear cuts with palm oil plantations and count them as forests. Then we send the palm oil to Europe to burn in diesel cars as “biofuels”.
Some of these science whores will talk about algae ponds for solar/wind back up energy, what they don’t tell you is that humanity would need a country the size of Argentina to do this. South Korea doesn’t have enough land for 100% solar/wind power. The U.N. science pimps tells us we’ll get carbon negative energy growing all manner of plants, and they tell us we need new arable land the size of India to do it. That’s 1.2 million square miles, yet the whole planet only has 12 million square miles and we are losing 40,000 square mile of arable land per year. That rate of loss is not fixed and is bound upwards.
