Life In The “zero-carbon” World

NPR on Twitter: “Here’s what life is like in a zero-carbon world”

It isn’t hard to imagine what a carbon free world would look like. Carbon is the basis of all life.

Our entire civilization is dependent on carbon based fuels. Without them there would be essentially no food supply, transportation, communications, and very little heat, light and electricity.  There would be no stores, no deliveries. Civilization would quickly collapse and billions of people would die. Places like Ontario, which use a lot of nuclear and hydroelectric power, are also completely dependent on carbon based fuels. But they don’t like to talk about that.

Toronto ranked the 47th worst traffic in the world

The global warming scam is being used to get westerners to self-destruct.  We need to shift the conversation away from junk science, to pointing out the evil which is driving the scam.

    The photo rendering they used shows what should be beautiful natural environment paved with solar panels and the spaces in between with a decorative lawn. What was there before? Midwest grasslands? A forest? A desert? Who knows. It’s been changed into solar panels and a lawn.

    Where’s the holes in the earth from digging out the materials needed to build this? I suppose that many panels should be enough to run an electric lawnmower to maintain the lawn though.

      Probably farmland. It’s cheap and there is already infrastructure to get the maintenance vehicles there. As a bonus, it’s already been groomed and you don’t have to cut down trees to put your solar “farm” in place. Plus, run goats or sheep up and down the rows and you don’t even have to pay for lawn mowers.

    That sea of solar panels, I can just imagine that in tornado alley America.

    I was in a local watering hole when climate change and solar panels became the subject. I pointed to a lighting fixture with 4 x 40W bulbs and pointed out that the fixture was about 8 sqft and that it would take a typical 1 sq m solar panel (150-200 watts) or 9 sqft to power it.
    I then asked how many solar panels it would take to power the other lighting, HVAC, refrigerators, 6 TVS, etc. ?
    Then I asked about the size of the storage batteries and where to locate them – for when the sun isn’t available.
    One of the patrons is a climate change alarmist and an avid bowler. I challenged to him to ask the local 60 lane bowling proprietor what his electrical usage is and to do the math and get back to me with an answer. Not surprisingly, crickets.

    The forests of windmills are just as bad.

    The anti-frackers in the UK always go on about lorry movements and industrialising the countryside.

    It’s as though they think the windmills/foundations/electricity infrastructure are teleported into position and industrialising the whole countryside instead of an area like one small picnic site car park isn’t contradictory.

    If the Green New Deal were ever implemented it would be quickly known as the “Great Migration” South. Montana, the Dakota’s, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Upstate NY, NH, Vermont and Maine would all be uninhabitable with the small exception of coastal regions and small communities directly adjacent to the Great Lakes. Basically, it would look like N. America in the year 1500.

  6. Anon says:

    I guess we will get to the point where each baby born gets assigned a single solar panel life for all of their electrical needs.

    So, based on the current US population that will be 350 million solar panels.

    I suppose they can make allowances for rich kids, who can get more than one.

    • czechlist says:

      Solar panels are not immune to loss of efficiency so the average person would need at least 3 to complete current expected lifespans.
      But, if all “fossil fuels” are eliminated one just may be enough.

      • Alan Falk says:

        and when they wear out or are damaged, at least now, they’re not recyclable, either. Maybe some future technology…

        And I just read that after 15 years or so, wind farm generators lose about half their efficiency, too…

        Go, AOC, unicorns must be ALL Over your future.

    For each lb. of dry wood (dried plant matter), 1.65 to 1.80 lbs of CO2 is removed from the atmosphere (depending on the plant species).

    Average forests (mixture of hardwoods & conifers produce just over 3.5 tons/acre dried vegetation/year.

    So if the land cleared for this solar farm were left as forest, it would remove 11,500 to 12,600 lbs. (or ~6 tons) of CO2/acre/year from the atmosphere.

    Toronto? Toronto? Really? I just got back from my 5th trip up that way in the last two weeks! Done many more this year already and I’m friggin SICK of Toronto. This time it was stops in Burlington and Mississauga. The second stop sucks. Far too tight for big trucks. I was backed in door 5 and not even a day cab pulling a 53′ trailer could back into doors 3,2, or 1 until I pulled out. Door 4 was for a fork truck ramp and between door 5 and 3.

    But that wasn’t the worst of it. The shipping clerk there at Commercial Spring is a little self officious prick. Wouldn’t let me use the fax to send in the 19 pages of documents for the four shipments and instead said he would e-mail them. He didn’t. So for 1 1/2 hours I was using TransFlow to try to send them. The app allows you to scan and send the documents but it is time consuming and a pain in the ass when you have more than a few pages. Focus, take the pic (with flash on), crop, them image converts to a scanned pdf. If your lucky the image quality is good and you don’t have to go through the process again. Only so much memory in a phone so you do send the paperwork for one shipment at a time. The problem was those guys roll their paperwork up and that makes it tough to get it flat enough to get a good quality image. The other problem is that sometimes even though the image quality looks good on your phone it does not come out clear once transmitted.

    If that turd had just done his job I would have been home at 01:00 but since he didn’t I had to take a 2nd 10 hour break on the road and got home at noon.

    On the bright side I did my first trip this year up to Canada and back without using a drop of window washing fluid.

    The Venezuelans are currently enjoying a carbon-free life at the moment. It looks absolutely idyllic…

    • Mr GrimNasty says:

      Their immense push for near 100% hydro was probably a major factor in the economic/societal collapse. By 2016 it was supplying about 2/3 of their electricty when a drought really began to bite with power cuts/rationing.

      Ironic considering they have the largest conventional oil reserves and the second-largest natural gas reserves in the W.Hemi.

    Toronto (and Ottawa) were just named in the top 30 cities in the world. But so too was Honolulu which should tell you something about what a sham the list is.

  11. JPInBalt says:

    Carbon free world or no CO2, no plant life on Earth. No human life, et al, on Earth.
    Only idiots drinking the Kool-Aid would think of this as good (and do not know the pun on Kool-Aid, Jim Jones, less repeat).
