This is a far cry from satisfying the demand for 100 TWh total that we need just to replace all cars and light trucks. Not to mention stationary storage, farming, mining, and transport.

It would appear you are totally not reading the ipcc reports at all.
This is beyond a 10-day forecast.And the phenomena agree with the models which can hindcast,as well as forecast.The non-linear behaviors witnessed,favor the more 'low' probability scenarios of more radical change.

Steel was more valuable than gold by weigh until the start of the industrial revolution. One of the best examples I am aware of is when Alexander the great won one of his major battles he was rewarded with not silver or gold, but 30lb of steel.
Cement was difficult to produce with out natural gas. Wood was burned to dehydrate lime and volcanic ash was carried by animal cart to where it was needed.

Basically it sucked and we are better off now.

I wasn't talking about efficiency I was talking about power.
Now that you bring it up say a 2,000 gallon fuel tank could be replaced with a battery that holds the equivalent of 500 gallons. That would be 18.5 mega watt hours.
But then you problem only want to charge and run it between 20% and 80%. So would need more like 22mwh.
The power connection to recharge would need to be running like 2mw minimum.so you could recharge it in about 10 hours.

A power sub station for a 20mw is pretty substantial. That's what we have where I work. It cost millions of dollars and millions more to run the power for 20 miles.

I'm not defending anything but truth and data. The truth can't hurt. I'm sorry but I can't stand by and let people say that some magic pen can electrify everything like it is a simple thing to do. Neglecting to mention the $1-200 trillion of built out infrastructure that needs to be rebuilt or replaced. And then state that this will reduce primary energy demand by 85%. There is no study anywhere that supports this. The reports I have seen have stated a 45% reduction in primary energy from the full electrification of all human energy use.
.
Wishful thinking and misrepresented statements about the takeover rate of wind and solar lead to false ideas which produce undue animosity and produce faulty plans and timelines. Promoting a "Green Growth" false narrative. But wind and solar are not going to scale to replace half of the 17 TW we are blowing through right now. And battery production is not going to build out 80 TWh just for cars. Current world production is .06 TWh/ year. We are bragging about the next great GigaFactory in Germany proposed to have a capacity of .1 TWh/ year. Still a drop in the bucket if it can really come to pass. This remains to be seen since the current GigaFactory 1 is running at .02 TWh/ year.

That showed me that global warming isn't settled science and that the climate cult definitely isn't reading these reports.

So why are you so worried about the climate based on a report that we know is based on junk science?
Retraced in nature is roughly one step below out right criminal fraud, to me it looks like the difference is in the later they can prove intent.
Would you like to share a specific citation? The only junk science I'm aware of was that financed by the Koch Brothers and Exxon.

Wow really?
The The "quantification in ocean heat up take from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition" paper has been retracted in nature.
Since you don't know what the "quantification in ocean heat up take from changes in atmospheric O2 and CO2 composition" paper is obviously didn't read the ipcc report.

So what about the ridiculous ipcc cherry picking?

If we "solving" climate change means being net-zero CO2 while maintaining the level of wealth we have, then the technology does not exist currently. Perhaps nuclear stands a chance and supplying the bulk energy needs, but that remains to be seen, and requires a transition in many sectors of the economy, such as transportation. That opens many other cans of worms because battery technology is terrible in comparison to a petrol fuel tank, for instance.

I sound pessimistic, but only in the short-term. Long-term I expect we'll figure out how to replace fossil energy with other sources.



The main point I was making is that Nietzsche philosophy is the basis for modern philosophy, which basically states that there is no intrinsic good. The "good" then is open to interpretation, with the majority of people more or less adopting a John Stuart Mill Utilitarian philosophy, which says that morality is whatever serves the interests of the most people... which has some connection with socialism. It's a relatively small step to posit that the greater welfare would be served by doing away with some smaller group of people.

In my view, socialism is neither good nor bad, just like most any tool. It all comes down to how it's implemented and what the fundamental basis for it is. If the basis is to make everyone equal or the same, then it's evil.
Switching gears to philosophy will require a trip home.I've only read one work by Nietzsche.I wasn't impressed.And I'm not sure that he had the magnitude of impact on philosophy as you infer.I'll have to revisit Wooten's work.
What you describe sounds like neo-platonism,which I consider liquid evil.The put relative in cultural relativism.
Socialism is just an economic model.It's not god nor bad.It just is.It is associated with equitable distribution of wealth,as was enjoyed in America's Golden Age,between 1945 and 1973,when there was more public services.
