If we extrapolate current use,coupled with geometric population growth we'll have a relatively short time until fossil fuels drop off anyway.
Some business models advocate burning our total hydrocarbon inheritance within a very brief time frame,with no mention of how we'll sustain contemporary standards of killing.
Capitalists only ask for 12-years to move their investments,from occulted technologies into eclipsing technologies.
There's nothing sacred about fossil fuels.They weren't even in the public mind until England burned down it's forests making window glass for yuppy manor houses and had to switch to coal.Then they set up corporate colonies in the Americas,cutting it down and burning America to make glass to export back to England.
There will be,by default,a replacement for fossil fuels,whether we like it or not.CAR and DRIVER's got a lot of tires to smoke,and the days of liquid fuels are numbered.

He does not deny man made climate change. Lomborg simply (and wisely) states that we have much bigger problems that can actually be improved and with much less expense. ie food and water shortages, women's rights/ education/ leading to lower fertility rates, improved health care access, standard of living improvement/ redesign of socio-economic systems to make a more equitable distribution of wealth.

That doesn't even begin to tackle grid storage.
The necessity of invention is a mutha!
We've lost at least 30-years of development and production to the likes of the Global Climate Coalition.
With a BSFC in the neighborhood of 0.15 for EVs,there's no future for internal combustion.Sure,the Hydrocarbon Liberation Front is gonna scream and wail,and they'll be gnashing of the teeth,but pistons are going the way of the Dodo Bird.

Which will leave us with 1/3 of the available energy we now use. And be highly intermittent. And there is no decent replacement for liquid fuel for large farming and earth moving machines. Things will be much simpler and smaller after oil becomes remote.

Show me his math. Of how we can transmit all of the nightime load from solar panels in China, across the bearing straight, to Chile and Eastern USA.

Eco nazis that begin by calling you stupid is no better than the denial community which rejects the science.

They are both serious problems. COOL IT is the first bridge between these two radical extremes to explore science based solutions.
If we stand in their mocassins,we'll see things exactly as they do.We'll be equally as passionate.
And with 7,000,000,000 opinions on the matter,there's plenty of room for confusion.
And as 'he who pays the piper gets to call the tune',you'll want to follow the money,as 'Deep Throat' used to say.

Along with personal transportation larger than an e-bike with a 500Wh battery. Think what we will have left THEM 200 years from now.

Some people enjoy feeling angry. Some people like angering others. Some people like watching people fight. How many people would watch reality television\news if people discussed things rationally?
It's 'dog bites man' vs 'man bites dog'.Sensationalism sells.Just ask Ivy Lee.

Nearly everyone with a physics or engineering background says we need more nuclear power because it's the only technology that scales up, it's entirely possible we could be generating half our power from nuclear 20 years from now.
But nuclear power is bad. It must not be as bad as the CO2 released by bring coal, that's how I can tell they really are not that worried about it or just don't know anything about the nuclear fuel life cycle.
The wind and solar energy is there.
If we capture more of it we'll have more to use.
Tesla is already succeeding at grid-scale storage today in Australia.China is experimenting to find the best fit storage for them.
Tesla believes they'll be able to knock $9,000 off their packs with the Gigafactory.Lithium is very plentiful and 100% recyclable.
Hyundai didn't anticipate the lead time necessary to score enough batteries for their products.
Even the English knew they'd have 9-months to wait for Irish newborns to fill the meat departments of their grocery stores.
