UK currently gets 2.2% from wind, some of it offshore, and .5% from solar. If UK wants 50% of it's energy from wind, an area equivilent to 1/4 of the country will be required for the wind farms. If they want the other half from solar, another 1/8 of the land mass will be needed for the solar farms.
Be very careful who's numbers you use.
Scientists are finding statistical numbers,data,models,methodologies,non-accessible to fact-checking.
They could be viewed with the same suspicion as Arthur Anderson's book-keeping for ENRON.

If I get water from my toilet, and label as natural water rich in probiotics, I bet there will be milionaires to buy it.
Disgruntled 5-Star chefs/restaurants in Paris have been serving this to 1%-ers for decades now.The joke is on the rich.

Well, how much it's also from industries (energy consumed by a country divided by the number of population ? WHat is the energy per capta for just home consumers and schools worplace (lighting and heating and cooling of rooms) and energy for meals and services like cleaning, clothes washing?

Is that graphic including industries energy connsumed too ?



Home and workplace rooms alone it's one thing. Industry it's another, very different.
For the United States,the US Department of Commerce would have all those statistics.

By the time voters are willing to allow 'rational' governance,we'll be beyond all tipping points and headed over the cliff.

Detroit,Michigan,today,is providing new homes at $1/sq-ft.
Monthly mortgage payments are $400.
College kids in Denton,Texas are paying $1,200 / month for rent.
Do you see any opportunities for the lower class?

10-feet by 2013

No comment on how in his movie he said sea levels would rise 10 feet by 2013 or 2014, then buys a beach front mansion a few years later, likely using money made off that film?

If you want to see literally every failed inconvenient truth prediction just search "inconvenient truth memes".
I replayed and audited the entire program,plus the special feature addendum to the movie.
Gore mentioned a potential 20-foot sea-level rise,for a number of scenarios associated with Greenland and Antarctica,and NEVER mentioned a time-frame whatsoever.
There are some glaciologists today,that are warning of 10-13 feet rapid sea-level rise,associated with observed ice-sheet instability.

Al Gore will likely use one Hiroshima equivalent in his lifetime, alone.
How inconvenient.
Also,one gallon of gasoline is equivalent to 10-sticks of TNT.With the proper stoichiometric ratio,you can blow a city block off the face of the Earth with a single gallon.

I've blown my Honda CRX up to 82-miles {sideways}.

Plus they are doing it all wrong. A bottom up tax will have no measurable effect on saving the world.
One premise for a tax,is to pay for job training for those who'll be losing their fossil-fuel jobs.All of us who've consumed fossil fuels have contributed to the reason fossil fuels need to go away,so it's only fair,that we help our neighbors transition to a new form of income,with the least disruption to their lives as possible.
