New Warmist Solution: Ban Energy, Cows, And Fossil Fueled Vehicles

Think this will go over well, including with most Warmists? This is the kind of Warmist screed that actually gets worse the more you read it

One simple — but really hard — solution to stop climate change

There may actually be a way to keep the worst of climate change at bay, but it’s going to take a herculean effort, according to a new study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications.

Climate change is well underway already, the time to act and limit its human causes is now, many studies have shown. This latest report maps out what it may take to get there.

It posits that if the world was to phase out its “carbon-intensive infrastructure” at the end of its design lifetime starting from the end of 2018, there’s a 64% chance that the planet’s peak temperature can remain below the goal of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels. Above that, scientists predict the planet will see even more extreme weather events such as wildfires, droughts, floods, massive animal die offs and food shortages for millions. The planet is already two-thirds of the way there, with global temperatures having warmed about 1 degree Celsius.

To keep the global median temperature within this optimal 1.5 degree-Celsius limit, according to this study, change would have to happen across all sectors, not just in the energy sector. Power plants would need to be replaced, but so would gas and diesel-fueled cars, aircraft, ships and industrial plants. Even cows would have to go — essentially, anything that contributes to global warming.

Under this scenario, infrastructure such as power plants wouldn’t have to be scrapped and replaced with a non-carbon emitting technology — at least, not immediately. The researchers are talking about a “design lifetime.” In the case of power plants, the average lifetime based on historic data, is about 40 years. The average lifetime of a car on the road now is more than 11 years, according to Consumer Reports, but could last for about 200,000 miles, or 15 years, US estimates show. Once they wear out, stop working or die, they’d be replaced with technology or products that do not contribute to climate change.

So, once that lifetime is hit, no more. Period. Which means that the federal government would have to declare that no more fossil fueled vehicles would be allowed to be manufactured and sold. Which means that cows and pigs and dogs and cats and more wouldn’t be allowed to have babies. No more ships and aircraft. No more manufacturing plants. Heck, no more human babies.

These people really are bat-guano insane.

    You first.

    When climate activists give up using energy, I will believe that they actually believe what they are saying. Until then, the obvious conclusion is that they are lying for personal gain.

    Once (automobiles) wear out, stop working or die, they’d be replaced with technology or products that do not contribute to climate change.

    And what, I have to ask, would those be? Our plug in electric vehicles still have to have their batteries charged, which means power from the power plants, usually dozens if not hundreds of miles away. “(A) 100 mile span at 765 kV carrying 1000 MW of power can have losses of 1.1% to 0.5%,” so we are automatically losing efficiency.

    Just in your house, if the circuit breaker box is thirty feet from the charging port, and you are using 30 amps at 240 volts, you will have a 0.75% loss between the breaker box and the charging port. If you house is only 100 feet from the transformer, receiving 200 amps of current over standard aluminum transmission wires, you will lose 4.11% of voltage between the transformer and the house. At 250 feet from the transformer, the voltage loss is 10.27%.

    And much of that power came from fossil-fueled electric generating plants.

    The problem with the warmunists is that they think that we are deliberately burning fossil fuels because we have ignored the technology which will power everything by fairy dust.

    They did not propose to ban energy.

    If the scientists are right (very likely), some time in the not distant future, our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will have to make even more decisions.
