Bummer: Renewables Won’t Stop Climate Doom

Well, that puts a wrench in the monkey works

Renewables can’t deliver Paris climate goals: study

Expansion of renewable energy cannot by itself stave off catastrophic climate change, scientists warned Monday.

Even if solar and wind capacity continues to grow at breakneck speed, it will not be fast enough to cap global warming under two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the target set down in the landmark 2015 Paris climate treaty, they reported in the journal Nature Climate Change.

“The rapid deployment of wind, solar and electric cars gives some hope,” lead author Glen Peters, a researcher at the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research in Oslo, Norway, told AFP.

“But at this stage, these technologies are not really displacing the growth in fossil fuels or conventional transportation.”

Can you guess whats’ really needed?

“Politician seem happy to support wind, solar and electric vehicles through subsidies. But they are not willing to put prices”—a carbon tax, for example—”on fossil fuels.”

Funny how it always comes down to a few things for these leftists, one of them being a big tax that will end up hurting the lower and middle classes.
