“It Is Possible”

The LA Times says it is possible the world will eliminate fossil fuels and replace with wind and solar.

“The good news is we already know the solutions and have the technology needed to switch to renewable energy. But to succeed in curbing climate change, humanity will have to overcome powerful, entrenched fossil fuel interests and their beholden politicians. These industries have engaged in decades-long disinformation campaigns to delay climate action and try to cling to their profits for as long as possible.

It’s possible that decades from now we will be celebrating the near-elimination of fossil fuels and tracking the recovery of the atmosphere from our reckless dumping of greenhouse gases.”

A more credible story is that wind and solar are making almost no progress because they are unreliable and expensive, whereas fossil fuel companies provide a product which billions of people rely on for their day-to-day survival.

    It is possible if we are willing to live like Stone Age people waiting for the right time to make things when the solar collectors are cooking, and sitting on our hands when they are not. A modern society can’t wait to do important things, or be tied to a whimsical production mode. People like that get replaced by other people who aren’t like that. We don’t know what we are going to face in the next 10-50-100 years. We need honest science and engineering done by the best minds we have on the planet if we want to have a chance at surviving it. The proof is: The Wuhan Lab and their American co-conspirators;The WEF, and their fellow Nazis that would like to render us worse off than our peasant ancestors who lived 1000 years ago; regressive wokeness that thinks society should be restructured where idiots have a superior say in how things are run; lastly, we need some real information about the way our planet functions, and some control over idiots who draw, shoot, aim, our climate and biosphere.

    Hopefully, very soon we will hear that the LA Times, NY Times, and Washington Post have all become defunct and all of their staff have had their carbon footprints sequestered. How is it possible people this stupid survive until adulthood?

    I read the article and, more importantly, the comments to it. We truly have become and idiocracy – at least in Californicationia. How have people this mentally-ill managed to survive?

    I want to know how they plan to mine, transport and process all of the metal ores necessary for their green fairy tales by using wind and solar power alone.

    It is possible as long as wind and solar can parasitize healthy economiies run on fossil fuels and nuclear power.
    But as soon as those are no more to compensate green energy will be dead.
    As it is impossible to even mine the necessary stuff.
    We are talking about something that can barely replace a vacuum cleaner 1:1 and for sure not a 400 ton mining truck with 4000 hp and a 7000 hp excavator.

    And despite massive subventions the green start ups fail,fail and fail.

    Green energy is just like an astroturfed celebrity.
    Something with 0 value for society that pretends to be important.
    The Kardashian of energy supply.

    “…to succeed in curbing climate change,” watermelons will return N. America and western Europe to Stone Age living standards.

    One day we will learn how to derive our energy from the electric currents from the Sun, and within the Earth, but solar panels and windmills are children’s games on the road to where we are going.

  8. Forty years of denigrating scientists and engineers as ‘geeks’ and ‘nerds’, proved popular among the innumerate and technically ignorant, a tendency exploited by the mass media, until stupidity became an actual accolade. People use the most sophisticated technological products, without even a hint of curiosity as to how they work. Such attitudes would have been unthinkable back in the 1950s, when science actually held the public’s respect. Nowadays it is portrayed as the cause of human misery rather than its cure. Such a society does not deserve the benefits of science, Let it rot under the influence of egotistical charlatans and bogus science.

    So tomorrow starts the “waste management “ open
    Get ready for a garbage removal corporation telling us how green they are and how much they “recycle “
    In reality I bet 95% of the garbage goes into landfill but they spen themselves as “green “
