Bummer: Fossil Fuels Usage To Reach Record Highs In 2017

One of the best things of all time which allows people to move out of poverty and into a better life is the use of fossil fuels. Inexpensive, easily obtained, reliable energy. This is a bad thing in Warmist World

Fossil fuel emissions will reach an all-time high in 2017, scientists say — dashing hopes of progress

Global carbon dioxide emissions are projected to rise again in 2017, climate scientists reported Monday, a troubling development for the environment and a major disappointment for those who had hoped emissions of the climate change-causing gas had at last peaked.

The emissions from fossil fuel burning and industrial uses are projected to rise by up to 2 percent in 2017, as well as to rise again in 2018, the scientists told a group of international officials gathered for a United Nations climate conference in Bonn, Germany.

Would that be the COP23 conference, where thousands upon thousands of True Believers took fossil fueled trips from all over the world to attend?

The renewed rise is a troubling development for the global effort to keep atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases below the levels needed to mitigate the worst effects of climate change. The more we emit now, scientists say, the more severe cuts will have to be later. That’s because of the very long atmospheric lifetime of carbon dioxide, which means we can only emit a fixed amount in total if we want to stay within key climate goals.

They should start with their own usage of fossil fuels.

China and India are going up for CO2 output, and expected to further rise a lot. The EU is expected to go up a tiny bit. The US is expected to continue its slow downward trend. However, when it comes to the Rest Of the World, their output is expected to go way, way up, and this goes very much to the so-called developing nations, which are very interested in using fossil fuels and other things that put out CO2 in order to have the same lifestyles as those in the 1st World.

The new findings will be immediately relevant to the proceedings in Bonn, since one part of the agenda involves laying the groundwork for a “facilitative dialogue” to take place next year, in which countries will take a hard look at where their emissions are, and where they need to be, to live up to the Paris goals.

Let’s unpack that: it means global elites who refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels and lavish carbon footprints want to control what everyone is allowed to do.

    The Cons have every right to crow. They’ve won. They’ve shifted economic burdens from the wealthy the working classes, stopped any progress on global warming and have engineered the takeover of all levels of the thing they purport to hate the most, the US government. Their only real loss was way back in the early 70s (before the great Con revolution of 1980) when scientists and society were able to slow the loss of the ozone layer. NuCons are too well organized and financed to allow that to ever happen again.

    Their next major challenge is to transform the US into a conservative, Christian, Caucasian Caliphate, with wealthy elites running the show and white serfs to fend off the infidels… and they are well on their way.

    The Cons have won and should be proud.

    We’re not convinced you folks know what “racism” means.

    • Some Hillbilly in St Louis says:

      Very well, why don’t you(pl.) explain to us what racism/racial bigotry is? As a bonus, explain why your bigotry is not bigotry. I won’t even bother to ask about your anti-Christian bigotry – I know that your god demands that you hate Christians.

      • Jeffery says:


        There are no gods, so there is that. I don’t hate people who believe in magic and mythical beings, but I do object if their fantastical beliefs intrude into the real life of others.

        racism (noun): a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race

        • Some Hillbilly in St Louis says:

          “Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another, which often results in discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity.”

          Yep, you’re a racist.

      You’ve drained it of all meaning.
