This is why the world finds it impossible to reduce fossil energy consumption thus far despite three decades of acknowledgement and world agreements. To do so unilaterally places your country or region at a competitive disadvantage in the free market. So in order to be fair, everyone in the world has to be all in at once according to their abilities.
.
NY state has anounced a goal of 100% rebuildable electricity by 2050 and is starting a carbon tax on electric generation to push adoption. And streamlined offshore wind licensing to include 70 GW wind and 20 GW nameplate solar installed in 30 years.
.
The worry is that industry will just move over the border to PA which has the cheapest fracked gas in the world.

Yeah, I was going to say that all these green initiatives that aren't reciprocated everywhere else will just have the effect of making those people poorer as business leaves.

"In this low EROI future, we simply have to accept the hard fact that we will not be able to sustain current levels of economic growth. “Meeting current or growing levels of energy need in the next few decades with low-carbon solutions will be extremely difficult, if not impossible,” the paper finds. The economic transition must involve efforts “to lower total energy use.” But capitalist markets will not be capable of facilitating the required changes — governments will need to step up, and institutions will need to actively shape markets to fit the goals of human survival. Right now, the prospects for this look slim. But the new paper argues that either way, change is coming."

Bangladesh’s Climate Migration Crisis

Beyond The Headlines

Quote:
DYKSTRA: The 160th birthday of one of the leading lights of climate scientists, the chemist Svante Arrhenius, a Swede, born on February 18, 1859. He published one of the first definitive papers on what we now call the greenhouse effect. It turned out to be one of the biggest I-told-you-so's in the history of science, back in 1896 when he suggested that coal burning could impact temperatures in Europe.

CURWOOD: Well, he got that one right! So this Swede was a big deal scientist of his times, right?

DYKSTRA: That's right, Arrhenius was also involved in researching the Northern Lights, the aurora borealis, and he won the third ever Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on electrical conductivity. Happy 160, Svante Arrhenius!

I recommend having that lateral intraparietal cortex looked at.

A neighbor follows Tesla a bit.
Evidently,when one uses a Supercharger,the car's electronics are interrogated in real-time. The data streams,analyzed by Tesla, indicate that,if owners continue to behave as they are,then the trajectory for Tesla OEM packs reflect an anticipated 20-year lifespan,which is 8-years beyond the current statistical life of the mean average automobile.

I certainly hope so.However,with the continuing mantra of 'growing the (consumer) economy,'and an already $12,000/per capita debt,I don't know what power the proletariat will have to combat Madison Avenue's upcoming and innovative opiates,sold on zero-down,easy pay (for the rest of your life) reverse-savings architectures at a retailer near you.

Louisiana Purchase

The Green New Deal is the product of a specific world view. It envisions total government control of the economy. It's the end-game of the Frankfurt School Marxists.

The person AOC defeated (Crowley) would otherwise be the Speaker of the House, but even Nancy Pelosi isn't buying it. When the President called for unity in the SOTU address, she reached up and shifted her red and blue necklace to her right.

The last picture I saw of AOC, she had a tear rolling down her cheek.

edit:
It's hard to keep up. The Louisiana Purchase is socialism?
Yes.

That's not what NASA and NOAA say.
If the 1-percenters have their own dedicated,full-time,weather satellite and terrestrial monitoring stations,different data,and analytic conclusions to counter extant claims,it would be a good time for them to come forward with their bonafides.

How many people? What percentage? Has the percentage changed? How much has the population increased during the time period? What was the criteria used to determine the outcome? Has the criteria changed during the length of the study period?


#3

How many heated related deaths exactly? What is the criteria for heat related death? Has the criteria changed? Who determines heat related deaths?


#4

What is the percentage difference from previous years? What is the criteria? Has it changed over the years? Has the population increased? Who determines it heat related?

#5

In Arizona? The U.S.? The world? ???

By the year 2030 it is estimated that 1.2 Billion more people will be added to the face of the Earth for a total of 8.2 Billion.

250,000 as a percentage doesn’t even make a dent...


Percentages and numbers that are inter changed skew results.

Percentages and numbers mean nothing without context or methodology.


Just wanted to point it out.

(Not asking you to validate your post. We all have better things to do)








Edit

#5

Might be a world number.

If the information is important enough,you'll pay better attention, be aware,and intercept it as it presents itself.
Since you're not already in possession of the information it infers a lack of interest,or failure on your part,to capture the data from your environment as it made itself available.
I'm not your boy.I'm not willing to turn on a dime and redirect my course of study predicated upon your interests.Perhaps,at my speed,over time,I would be able to flesh out data more fully.
If you're going to debate facts,you're going to have to do your own due diligence and build your own brief.
Data is always available online.
NATURE will be able to provide raw data.Research methodologies.Computer/statistical models employed. .Results.Probabilities,Conclusions,Discussion,Reco mmendations for further research.Any post-publishing corrections
