The federal government birthed Internet, but it's just a proud parent.

slowmover: Politics is downstream from culture. And vice versa.

Amazing how it still works, isn't it? Almost like it's about human nature instead of technology.
what does that stand for?

Your liberty ends where mine begins.Once you've paid tribute to Caesar,you are granted some privileges,but that's all you have.You're not really free.

Funny...

You just described the AGW cult.

Just substitute Breitbart for AOC...

IPCC

I will play make believe and pretend the paper that made up the frame work for the oceans and cryosphere ipcc report hadn't been retracted in nature and that it's still relevant, since that's what your doing.

In this report the ipcc defines pre industrial climate as the time between 1850 and 1900.
This seems odd to me for several reasons:
The industrial revolution had already stated by 1850 then exploded from 1850 to 1900.
There is seemingly no upper time limit to what "pre industrial" climate could be defined as time wise but they went with 50 years.
Just 50 years doesn't really fit the definition of climate.
1850 was the end of the little ice age and there was a rather large volcanic eruption in 1883 that caused the earth to be cooler for up to 10% of that 50 year time frame.
Why does it seem like they cherry picked a time period to define the base line for pre industrial climate in a time that isn't pre industrial or long enough to be climate and we know was unusually cool because of explainable events?
Up to around 1850,the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide was on the order of 280ppmv since 11,000 years ago,when we entered the Holocene at the end of the last ice age.Which is defined by ocean levels that are circa 1850,by definition.You should know that!.That's what's referred to as 'pre-industrial.'
We have paleo records,to the year, dating back three ice ages.We know what the atmosphere was like in the past and what the climate was like.
Our current level of CO2 reflects an Earth temperature that hasn't been seen in a great while.We'll achieve that temperature given time.That's the problem.

Find a mechanical engineer to explain it to you.
Your information is not actionable! It's completely conditional/contextual.And your inability to grasp this concept makes you dangerous to the public at large.You've hit your Rumsfeldian moment.Just like Julian Simon.Just like Bjorn Lomberg.Just like Nate Hagens.

They are doing the thing. Conflating the terms "energy" and "electricity".
.
Electricity is only a small fraction of total primary energy consumption.
.
.

.

.
. I couldn't find a chart with a better break out for UK "renewables and nuclear" But this is the newest chart showing the totals from 2018 for Germany which will slightly lead UK on wind and solar at 4.6%.
.
.

.
.
And then to keep this in perspective for the world, additions of fossil fuel consumption outpace new added production from renwables by 2-3X every year. Energy consumption is growing far faster than solar and wind are being built out.
.
.

.
.
A more sophisticated version of the same error.

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 would just add that,us being better off may cost us our planet.
